Yes he was. You're fucking retarded if you think otherwise.>Talks with children for literal HOURS on the phone>Tells them "I love you" constantly>Asks their parents if they can stay with him for a fuckin year>Always sleeps alone with them>Always has new boytoys so you can't even chalk it up to him just havin a really cool close friend
Any other grown adult male you saw doing this would immediately tell you he's doing something wrong.>B-but he only acted like that because his childhood was taken from him and it was a coping mechanism for him!
Great, so we're establishing he has a mental illness, developmental issues, and obviously acts out of the norm? Consider the above actions under the pretext of a NORMAL adult man doing this. Now, imagine it with the pretext of a MENTALLY ILL adult man doing this.
I was a teen when this dude was on trail. My parents were diehard Jackson fans who refused to believe he was guilty. I asked them if they'd find anything weird about a stranger treated me, their child, like he treated those kids.>"Oh, that's different. A random stranger isn't MJ!"
The whole reason ANYONE thinks this is okay is because they're blinded by his status. At most, they'll say "oh, he was a creepy guy but he wouldn't hurt a fly!" While at the same time they'd condemn non-assaulting pedophiles to burn in hell. It's a really weird double standard. At the very least, you can admit he was almost certainly attracted to these little boys, even IF you assume he didn't attack any of them, right? No adult man could dedicate so much to little boys (the fact that he had a gender preference solidifies this) and NOT be in some way attracted to them.
