    I didn't mean that being a Muslim physically causes you to like children, which is what I think you understood me to say. My point was that given two societies, let's say society A and society B, both societies have the same amount of pedophiles. Society A discourages pedophilia. Society B idealizes a pedophile, and child marriage is a common and excepted thing. The instances of pedophilia would be a metric ton more frequent in the society that is OK with pedophilia. That was my point. In the Islamic world, child marriage (forced usually) is a frequent occurance. Such as this instance. On top of that, the prophet Mohammed was a pedophile. So in an Islamic society, a pedophile would be able to engage in sexual acts with a child without as much traction.

    I don't know why I even responded to your post, since you resorted to petty insults.

    He never said that or implied that. He simply said it was more complicated than just having sexual intercourse with a child.

    This is not logical. Someone talks about x, tells you they think about x, watches shows about x, has posters in their house depicting x, what would you conclude?

    Yeah eventually they're going to act on their urges. As any serial killer will tell you, you can only fantasize for so long.

    That was my point, if you are going to have a diverse gene pool you are going to need everyone to contribute to it, thus you would need to pretty much force Homosexuals to have sex with the opposite sex or contribute a significant amount of sperm ( That is if we have refrigeration still in this absurd scenario ), to produce more babies and to have more diversity.

    Answering that question would be completely pointless. It would be like asking if in history has a gay man raped another man before.

    That's a rather grim way to look at things. Imagine that there's a guy who has a crush on you, but you don't like him in return. According to your logic, the guy will eventually rape you and it's only a matter of time.
    Jackpot!

    I have a theory that the Pokémon world and the Mother world are one in the same. I won't go into spoilers for Mother 3, but think of Black and White's story of the dragon and the twins. Also, chimeras are kind of like Pokémon.

    Only if in you're comparing a pedophile who doesn't have sex to a gay man who does. What kind of comparison involving sexuality only puts sex on one half of the equation?!

    That's just the problem: the only way a pedophile has their own form of sex is rape, but the way a homosexual has their own form of sex IS NOT always rape.

    But just go ahead and only talk about dormant pedophiles and ignore the others, so that you can keep saying pedophilia and homosexuality are totally comparable. It's not doing a service for gay people OR pedophiles, because if the psychology establishment really does remove pedophilia as a disorder, all hell will break loose and social conservatives will bump standards of sex and gender back to the 50's.

    To be fair, the same thing happened when Gays were delisted as a disorder, and I don't think we are back in the 50s atleast. However what backwards idiots do or do not do shouldn't keep it from being properly scientifically defined. Sadly though it seems like politics has and will always be part of the process.

    I don't even think it's comparable. There needs no explanation for why pedophilia is wrong. The fact that homosexuality is being compared to pedophilia makes me sick to my stomach. Sick.

    Mind you I am only comparing it because I am detaching our emotion revoltion of a person having sex with a child. Take that away and what do you have? Some one who is physically attracted to a certain set of characteristics that make them unable to breed. How is that honestly different than Homosexuality? Or Bestiality? Or anything else outside of Heterosexual sex?

    Imagine all the rhetoric about the establishment going after the children. If I understand it properly, that kind of 'think of the children' refrain was prevalent when homosexuality was delisted because they considered homosexuality synonymous with pedophilia but with this situation, it's a little more direct because it is pedophila, so it gives people more fuel, and justified at that.

    Also that event was organized by B4UAct in order to let pedophiles who are active in managing their own help 'have a voice' in the APA process. I can understand that logic and how it happened, and the justification for decriminalization, but still, even people at that conference weren't happy with all the sympathy for pedophiles without any for the children they might be affecting. It did not go well.

    And I do understand the "Think of the Children" rhetoric, but wouldn't it be fair to separate the rapist from those that live normal lives? I mean would it be right if we grouped rapist in with any other sect? It would be like grouping those that like Furries into the same with those that actually have sex with zoo animals.

    Like I said, it's not comparable. You need a fresh set of morals. Now, explain to me why killing is bad. Oh, what's that? You have a very poor explanation? That's what I thought. Simply put, there are certain things called "morals."

    But you are applying "morals" to strictly scientific thought. Again I ask, when you strip out our concern for children, and boil it down to the base foundation what is so different between Homosexuality and Pedophilia? I am waiting...

    Well like I said, dormant pedophiles are fine, and so are furries in that vein. I'd group both of those in 'risk for perpetrating rape' toward each of their subjects technically, although psychologists ask for furries to seek help less often probably because they aren't as concerned about animals as they are about children - we can talk about the injustice of that or pointlessness or whatever of that another time. The reason they do that is to help pedophiles lead normal lives, not to stigmatize them further.

    To be clear, I'm not saying 'think of the children' myself, that's just incredibly corny. I'm just envisioning two steps ahead where this response leads to that, and I'm afraid that if the gender/sexual field does have such a PR nightmare, it turns into a reverse social revolution that makes more people misinformed and prefering to avoid progressive gender/sexual ideas than not. I like the way it is now in the DSM. If a pedophile isn't a) upset over their preference, b) getting into legal trouble because of it, then why not just leave them be? Heck, reality is stranger than fiction when it comes to my inner circle. I honestly do not mind and I am honor bound not to discriminate. But that doesn't mean making false equities and removing needed precautions to do that.

    But if we do accept that Pedophilia is nothing more than possibly a mutation of genes, or genes going in the wrong order like pretty much every other sexual attraction outside of heterosexuality ( Again assuming that the basic purpose of sexual attraction is finding a suitable mate to give birth ). Then giving them all the psychological help in the world won't really change them.

    Just a guess, but could it be that some Pedophiles believe they should be treated equally? That if they have something they cannot help and that is no different biologically than homosexuality, shouldn't it be given equal footing in scientific journals? I mean you are absolutely right that it is all about PR, and homosexuals will always trump Pedophiles and Furries and everyone else in PR sympathy. But I mean say for a second you are in their shoes, you have feelings you cannot control, you are stigmatized by society, and live in a world that basically would treat you like homosexuals were treated in the 50s if you "came out of the closet". Wouldn't even something as not being given equal footing in a scientific journal feel a bit unfair, to be called a disorder and homosexuals not?

    I mean that is all I am looking at this position from, how would I feel if I had to watch one group be given priority over another based not on science but on PR. Wouldn't it feel like another slap to the face?

    Except by then they are no longer attracted to the child because of the maturity of their body. Hell they would no longer even be called a pedophile scientifically if attracted to a child that is just starting puberty. They would be considered a Hebephile.

    So all pedophiles are only attracted to children?

    If we are going by scientific terms, Pedophila is the sexual attraction to pre pubescent children. Hebephilia toward children beginning puberty, and ephebophilia toward children who are later in puberty. Now I am sure there are people who can be attracted to children and adults equally, just as gays can be attracted to both males an females.

    I see where you are coming from, but that's different. If a man was attracted to me, he would be attracted to women. Let's say I don't like him and turn him down. Eventually, he will have sex with a woman, not specifically me. And it may not be rape. Just as a serial killer might see you walking down a street one night (or even several occasions) and thinks about murdering you. Eventually he'll/she'll do it, but it may not be you.

    Anyway, the over-arching point is that pedophiles (most) cannot hold their urges in forever. They will confront a child sexually.

    It would be like a severely intoxicated person saying yes, worse actually. While both the child and semi-conscious person may say "OK", neither are fully aware of what they are getting into. Legally, drunk people cannot give consent anyway. On top of that, children don't really know what sex is.

    You're still sounding like men who don't have sex for a long enough period will eventually rape someone.

    The idea is not to change them, though. It's to train them to prevent themselves from acting their desires out, in order to keep the differentiation of pedophile and child molester, like marioguy says. That's why psychologists urge them to get help, so they can get help managing being themselves and living within constraint of the law. They can tell everyone around them and have their own culture and everything. Those are ideal conditions (except for the illegalization of child porn) by LGBT standards.

    If I was saying all this just because of PR, then yes, it would be terrible. And I know I got a little too passionate in acting afraid of that. Bad PR is just part of it though. I honestly believe pedophilia needs to be part of the DSM, because what good would the destigmatization be if more pedophiles sought psychological assistance just to be told there's nothing to help and they're fine the way they are? There is something solid psychologist need to do for pedophilic patients, and for them to do that, there needs to be a diagnosis. As a medical patient this is just how I think.

    The tragedy of this is that I think that B4UAct did a very commendable thing by fostering a democratic system where pedophiles can be part of their own diagnosis. Like many amazing commendable things, it just happened to lead to something amazing in a bad way, in that the conversation cared more about about comforting its representatives then helping them deal with the truth.
