Is pedophilia wrong?
Posted 3/5/08 , edited 3/11/08
"In an announcement, an attractive man is shown snuggling a cooing baby. The screen fades to black, and a line appears: "This man has a mental illness."
(Disgusting... right? That is just sick, who would've thought?)

Why hello there. I'm Pedobear.
Let's talk about it.
Is pedophilia wrong? Or is it just misunderstood?
I'm not talking about child molesters, but pedophiles.

Definition of a pedophile: Pedophilia or paedophilia (Commonwealth usage) is the primary or exclusive sexual attraction by adults to prepubescent children.

Now, I'm not an expert on this and I'm only 17, but hear me out.
Pedophiles in our society can function and socialize like a normal person.
The thing is their sexual orientation is very "rare and odd" compared to others.
They are considered as a mental patient and viewed as a sick twisted individual.

Alright, what if pedophilia was not a mental illness? We can even compared this kind of sexual behaviour something as... homosexuality. In fact, as many of you already know, homosexuality was perceived as a mental illness by many people (psychologists, sociologists etc) in the old days. Are we making the same mistake? What if you were born and just sexually attracted to kids? (not necessarily their behavior or the mentality) Many adults/adolescents who aren't pedophiles, can still have sexual thoughts of young people.
But they do not engage in the act because of the "moral" of our current society.

Let me ask you this.
Have you ever thought of being in his/her shoes? How it feels to be forever eternally condemned by the society how "wrong" they are even tho they still seek search for help to get out of this "illness", but instead get reported by people and go to jail? Later humiliated and fingered by the public? This kind of phenomenon doesn't really encourage pedophiles now does it? So later maybe few or X of them will develop a mentality (which they probably would think it is unfair or they are being discriminated against) that will make them break the law and become a potential child molester.

The media keeps implanting us with false information. What I mean by this is they use the word pedophile instead of child molester, which is a huge difference to me. Pedophile: The person has a sexual attraction to kids to teens, but he/she keeps that to him/herself and does not act. Child molester: The person ACTS (rape or unwanted sexual harassment).

I'm not saying we should legalize pedophilia, but try to understand more out of it. Personally, I wouldn't want a pedophile dating my child (if I had any, which I won't), because just the thought of it... We would just want our kids to have a "normal life" without getting screwed around somewhere in their head because of "the possibilities". I do not know how parents think about this issue since I have no kids. I heard people who are open minded to everything (including pedophilia), are against it after having kids.

This is getting long, so what do you think about this? Is it wrong or right?
I'm in the grey zone. Just tell us your thoughts about this.

Ps: My name is made only for humor. I'm not a cop. This is not a cop-bait.

Edit: Please, explain yourself clearly and logically why it is wrong or right.
"We" do not want to hear something that goes...
" OMFG U SICK FUCK"
" WTF YOU PEDO?1!??"
" IT IS UNACCEPTABLE IN ANY WAY, NO EXCEPTION"
" IT'S DISCUSTING, THEY SHOULD BE LOCKED UP AND GET ASS-RAPED"
" WHAT'S WRONG WITH YOU?"
" IT HURTS THE CHILDREN "

Bonus:
Remember the first paragraph you just saw? About a man snuggling a baby? Well here is a full version of it.

The screen fades to black, and a line appears: "This man has a mental illness." Showing the man snuggling the baby again, a voice over says, "What's really 'sick' is how your perception of him just changed."

Deviance, Conformity, and Social Control in Canada" by Tami M. Bereska
Chapter 1, Page 30

"A recent public service announcement by the Canadian Mental Health Association strived to change perceptions of people with mental illnesses. In this announcement, an attractive man is shown snuggling a cooing baby. The screen fades to black, and a line appears: "This man has a mental illness." Showing the man snuggling the baby again, a voice over says, "What's really 'sick' is how your perception of him just changed."

Edit 2: Please try to understand what others are trying to say (especially people who do not think it is a mental illness, because we are generally not seen as a "normal beings" by others by saying such thing).

Thank you:

I think it's weird,
but that's just their preference.
I mean, I'm bisexual, so I prefer both males and females.
They just prefer a specific age group which isn't really...welcome.
I don't think Pedophilia is like horrible and all--it's just an (unusual) preference.

Child Molesters though, should be destroyed >.>

Overall - yes I do think it's wrong I mean they're children for fucks sake but.........as long as they don't act on it i guess I really don't give a shit. But the second they cross that line, I will be waiting with a gutting knife.

Oh and >> to me, buying kiddie porn is the same thing as acting on it b/c they're funding those who DO act on it.

Also > homosexuality and pedophilia have nothing to do with each other. One is gender preference the other is age preference. Let's not get them confused.

Well, if a pedophile watches kiddy porn, a kid was fucked to make that video.
And if a pedophile just sits tight and quiet, eventually he'll make his own set of kiddy porn, people aren't very good with temptation.

oh. my. god.

what kind of question is that?! of course it's wrong! they're children. ugh! they're to be protected not exploited to satisfy some freak's twisted lolita complex. They are innocent and unready for the things that peodophille's imagine. it's not the same as homosexuality,that involves two consenting adults. there is nothing to justify the actions of pedophiles in my opinion.

How can paedophillia not be a state of mental illness?? There is a reason why paedophillia is synonymous with child molestation and those involved usual suffered from nasty psychological impacts.!

I don't really think age really matters for most pedophiles. I think what they like about kids is
the body shape, appearance, the curves and stuffs. A homosexual can be a pedophile at the same time,
he/she doesn't really care about age, but cares about its gender/appearance? ex: a 14 year old with a perfect body and he's the same gender as him/her.

The only thing they have in common is that they
are preferences.
Not EVERYONE is fond of homosexuality
and I think almost EVERYONE isn't fond of pedophilia either.
I'm just stating that they're two preferences that are not really
"morally correct"

EDIT :
yeah a gay guy could like a younger boy for example.
So it could tie in together as state above.

Me and my friends at Colt and Remington have something waiting for any "misunderstood" freak of nature who even looks at my 7 year old the wrong way. They are the misbirths of mother nature and deserve to stagnate or drown in their own geneological dead ender chromosome allignment sess pools. Could care less what anybody else thinks of my opinion. Freedom, love it or leave it, but realize there's always somebody or something out there 10 times more crazier than you are so be prepared for the consequences. I have spoken. Have a nice day.

......it doesn't matter if they're looking at their age or not the point is they're still going after kids. And yes, a homosexual can be a pedophile, but that doesn't make pedophilia and homosexuality the same thing. Oh and I am done arguing this. To me: Pedophilia is wrong. End of story. Agree or disagree i don't care, but i'm not going to start chainquoting or a forum war over this.

Okay, you are right in a way.
So what "we" should do is to ban any kind of stuffs that shows any kinds of images that can "lure" people?

I think Anime (especially Hentai) have so many underage girls/boys making out. I mean they have people doing with tentacles, chicken, chopped out legs, vomit, poop, babies. So can we really leave this as it is and say "Oh it's none of our business, it's Japan, its culture is different from ours".

Well, I didn't state it was the same thing, but I'm sorry if you misunderstood me.
I think it is rather a similar "phenomenon".
