Today, I was at the mall with my girlfriend's family. Her 7 year old brother told me he was feeling sad, so I tried to give him a pat on the back, but it turns out he had a bruise there. He yelled out "don't touch me there!" In the middle of the mall. Now her parents think I'm a pedophile. FML

#2 and others
the world is not fucked because people are blamed for being paedophiles because they 'lay one finger on a kid'. the world is fucked up because paedophiles exist.
And to all the people who are telling you to beat the kid... he is just a kid and probably didn't even think of that. Seriously, calm down.

Haha, in all honesty, I say that in public all the time when people go near me to like touch my arm or hug me, and I'm sure it makes everyone feel like they've just sexually assaulted me.
If you were with your girlfriends family, I'm pretty sure they'll figure it out sooner or later you aren't actually trying to touch little children. Like that.

This really sucks though.

I agree with #2 and #7 - this is why all this shrieking frenzy about pedophilia has gotten so ridiculous. When you can't even lay one finger on a child you know to comfort them without being called a pedophile, that's pretty pathetic.

Anyway, it was good of you to try and cheer him up. Hopefully you'll be able to explain what happened.
