    I think that story is a myth. Maybe paedophiles who were caught by the law say it to gain sympathy from the courts trying to get a lower sentence by claiming because they were molested it gave them some psychiatric disorder that made then become a paedophile. When facing a prison term most people will say anything they can to try and avoid prison.

    Its rare that a victim grows up to be an aggressor but it does happen. Why? Ive never really looked into the psychology of it as much aggressor type psychology is taboo and usually hijacked by ideology. So its hard finding good research on it.

    Edit: I would suggest moving this to Psychology section but most use opinion based. Or you could move it to gender studies. Many there have done various research on all sorts including types of abuse.
