Performative Rage Over Pedophilia Doesn't Protect Kids


One of the risk factors mentioned was antisocial personality disorder.

I did some cursory research on it on Wikipedia:

Some studies suggest that the social and home environment has contributed to the development of antisocial behavior.[40] The parents of these children have been shown to display antisocial behavior, which could be adopted by their children.[40] A lack of parental stimulation and affection during early development leads to sensitization of the child’s stress response systems, which is thought to lead to underdevelopment of the child’s brain that deals with emotion, empathy and ability to connect to other humans on an emotional level. According to Dr. Bruce Perry in his book, The Boy Who Was Raised as a Dog, “the [infant’s developing] brain needs patterned, repetitive stimuli to develop properly. Spastic, unpredictable relief from fear, loneliness, discomfort, and hunger keeps a baby’s stress system on high alert. An environment of intermittent care punctuated by total abandonment may be the worst of all worlds for a child.”[52]

There are other possible causes noted as-well, such as head trauma. It may be correlated to insufficient levels of cortisol to balance out the levels of testosterone in the body.
