Honestly speaking, pedophilia normally stems from being sexually assaulted as a child--or due to brain chemical imbalances. What does this mean? Pedophilia CAN be corrected by therapy in some cases, not in all. It should not be treated as something terrible, but if they act upon it in any way, they should be prosecuted and treated like monsters. Children under the age of 16 (in certain states) are not able to consent to sexual acts... and a lot of children are raped, sexually assaulted, or give their virginity up to older children because they're forced into it via peer pressure and manipulation. This is not okay.

Although pedophilia is considered liking children who have not undergone puberty, hebephilia is just as bad. Teenagers 11-14 are still undergoing puberty and their brains are still growing and changing. They're at a point in life in which what they do will effect them in the long run. Having sex with people could carry traumatic impacts such as abuse of drugs, addiction to sex, self-harm, and a plethora of other things. And this is especially common in teenagers who are forced into sex because their boyfriend/girlfriend said it's what people "in love" do.

Pedophilia on the other hand will cause traumatic harm on any of the children involved. It can make them feel dirty, used, wrong and cause suicide, abuse of drugs in later years, and even the rejection of sexual acts as an adult.

I do not believe that pedophiles are truly monsters, but what a lot of them do to children (rape, sexual pictures, molestation) is just wrong.

Lolicon =/= Pedophilia in all cases but it's just as creepy.

**This is not added to the previous conversation I was having, this is my over-all view of PEDOPHILES as a whole, rather than parents not being involved in their child's life enough/computer monitoring.


I know hibiphilia does not refer to 11yr olds, because it only refers to teens. That said your point has been well made.

Actually you were right. I looked it up on my own. In every Websters dictionary hebephilia is not listed. So I went to the another dictionary on my computer and it had a very vague definition, and so I went to Wikipedia and there was the only indepth definition I saw. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hebephilia Sorry I was given the wrong information sometime ago. Also I believe that the DSM-5 has been published and it probably does not include the updated info. What a shame. I was really hoping that it would be the most concise and up to date book on mental health there was out there.

Firing squad. Burning at the stake. Push off top of 60 story building. Bind and lay in fire ant nest for a day. Put in giant microwave?
