i said they cared, not that they had the slightest idea how to go about it.
you gotta get yourself into the mind of a parent, not a cynic permavirgin that scoffs at the idea of being blinded by a furious impulse to care for children, but an average person who's in that place.
They are almost all barely educated themselves, what the fuck would they know about the developing mind of a child? 99% or more of people on earth will never, through the entire course of their lives interact with the consecuences of messed up sexual development before they reproduce. They probably care more about keeping them away from drugs and teen pregnancy which is a far more sensible concern.
