Some criminologists think that Mysopedia is a spectrum of sexual aggression, some think of it as a mental disorder, and even some form of sadism. These views are plausible, but there is another one which might be possible.
This foreign language article introduces the idea that if society torments a pedophile too badly, they may become vengeful and turn into a Mysoped.
