I think we all have a “sense” that it is wrong, but why do we feel that way?
ve heard that a person cant really be cured of their pedophilia.
Pedophiles themselves have said that no amount of counseling can change their sexual urges.
If a person is born with these urges and has to live with them their whole lives, why are they looked upon as evil and bad people?
s assume that no crimes have been committed by the pedophile, just urges and thoughts. How is this different than me being sexually attracted to large breasted females, or a women being sexually attracted to guys with long hair, older people of either gender being attracted to someone 30 years younger then them, my brother being attracted to older men, or someone liking S and M? What is different about pedophiles that makes them outcasts? What if a pedophile said to you, "Youre lucky you
re attracted to someone that wont get you prison time, Im stuck being attracted to children and I have to live my life not being able to act on these urges."
How would you react?
How do you respond to this?
How does this parrallel what the gay community has gone through? Is there a parrallel?
(A few decades ago a gay person may have said the following to a straight person, “You
re lucky youre attracted to the opposite sex, I`m stuck being attracted to the same sex and I have to live my life not being able to act on these urges”)
Pedophilia; The act or fantasy on the part of an adult of engaging in sexual activity with a child or children.
I am NOT endorsing pedophilia. I got into a conversation with Otto and Esprix in another thread and the idea for this thread sort of morphed into my tiny brain.
