In hindsight, maybe I should have kept masking tape handy during the holiday season.

No component of that image is sexual. No component of that image is pedophilic.

If I don't somehow view that image as a crime in progress, what exactly is being normalized?
What a great uncle, train your niece to hold nice and still while her hands are being taped.
