@lilek22:  As someone who was molested when I was a very young child, I find this both horrific and extremely insulting.

While I agree there must be something very wrong kn the head with pedophilliacs, i dont think it is the same as being straight/gay etc. One is between consenting adults and the other is being attracked to children, who do not have the legal or emotional/mental ability to understand how to consent. To try to make it okay and “de stigmatize” it does a disservice to all the children who have been abused in that way.

A ssexual orientation isn’t a choice. That is all the psychological categorisation is getting at. Beastiality or more correctly Zoophilia is classed as a sexual orientation and it is still considered a crime. Labelling something a sexual orientation doesn’t make it morally right or make it not a criminal act.

It is just a label.

If individuals want to identify as a pedophile more power to them. If they want a check box  on forms let them have it. You can be a pedophile and never ever touch a child. Just something to remember.

To act out their desires is when they cross the line. If society was a bit more accepting about different sexual orientations like this then people who identify and want help to manage their desires would be able to access help. Who knows a more tolerant society might mean more poeple seek assistance and less children harmed.

Edited to say by excepting I mean more open to people identifying to get help so as they do not harm children and not that they should have free reign to have sex with children.

@j_jaye:  I personally do not believe that people like this can be “helped”. You cannot fix the straight or the gay out of someone if that is what they feel and who they are attracted to, so what makes us believe we could fix someone out of being attracted to children.

 

Maybe I’m biased because I’ve been personally affected by one of these pricks, but I think they should all be put down because there’s clearly something very wrong with them that is dangerous to innocent children.

@quierajen:  There are ways to help somene who identifies as a pedophile. There is no way to change their sexual orientation but there are steps that can be taken to minimise the chances of them acting on their impulses. Does it work on everyone, of course not.

The same way that addicts can minimise the risk of relapsing. They will never stop being addicts but they may never tkae a drink or touch a drug thanks to the help.

 All men have the potential to be a rapist do we castrate all of them? Or do we educate men to not rape women?

@lilek22:  I don’t know if everything in the first link you posted is true, but it came across as quite fair and explained the information well.
