While I agree with everything you said, I honestly think that confusion will just end up hurting you more in the end. You clearly had no success in trying to stop clopping yourself, so either see a therapist for treatment to remove the fetish completely or accept the fact that you're a perverted deviant weirdo (or at least that most people will call you that) and not care what people think. (In my opinion, some clop pics and the idea of clop itself are pretty damn weird, but I've seen worse stuff in porn and on the Internet.)
If the fetish is leading you to hurt others or you're uncomfortable with it, then you should at least talk to someone about it. Otherwise, if you have a fetish and you're still a normal, happy person, then you don't need to do much of anything. Nothing wrong with fetishes, but they can be "weird" or "not normal" simply because those with fetishes are in the minority compared to those that don't. I find nothing wrong with most of them even though there are some fetishes I will never understand (vore, inflation, scat, guro, etc.). However, I never judge the fetishist because I don't know who he or she is really like as a person outside of this one trait. Does that make things clearer?
Well, I pretty much don't give the slightest damn what people think about me. Plus, I don't tell people, unless it's obligational, so yeah... f*ck peoples' opinions, and do what ever the f*ck you want.
Also. I don't have a seriously confused mentality, like my comment said. I just think clopping is rather weird, etc. but, I still find it normal. My view upon it is strange, and most people don't understand it. So, I honestly just tell myself. Beat off to what you want(Not children.), as long as you don't f*ck an animal. Which, by the way, I won't ever do in my entire life, and people who do it, are all insane and should see a therapist immediately. ^^
