Article is right. Some pedos are born with a sexual attraction to kids and never act on it because they know its wrong.

Yeah, based on some of the stuff I have read is if one gets molested as a kid that person may want to molest children. If they don't act on it good for them. But stay out of teaching and places where one interacts with kids all the time.

Same thing to lots of us comparing the situation with a sixteen year old girl. She may be sexually attractive but stay away.

If it's legal, go for it.

16 is legal in much of the US.

It isn't an orientation. People like you are trying to turn it into one.

I'm not trying to justify pedophile behavior (for obvious reasons, it's sick), but do you honestly think those people just sat down one day and decided "from now on, I'm going to be sexually attracted to children"? People used to say the same thing about homosexuality.

I've once saw an AMA on Reddit of a guy who said he was sexually attracted to children. He said very few of them are comfortable with their attraction and are angry that you literally can't get therapy for it in most countries.

All that said, acting on urges IS a choice and anyone who acts on urges like this is disgusting. But some of these people literally cannot help who they are attracted to and they need help.

It probably falls in a similar category as an orientation. More of a fetish thing though. The problem with fetishes is that it takes over your sexuality. If it's deep enough, you can't have any sexual pleasure without it. Most pedophiles hate the fact that they are pedophiles.

It IS a fetish though. Just like homosexuality, heterosexuality, whatever. Sexuality is measured by varying degrees of attraction, not just Yes and No.

Are you sexually attracted to children?

Presumably not. So how could you possibly know what they are feeling or not feeling?

Article is right. Some pedos are born with a sexual attraction to kids and never act on it because they know its wrong.

And the article also implies pedophiles working with children is social good. The fuck. Also, the only reason they know it's wrong is because we've been telling them that. If people didn't shout about how bad it was, guess what? They'd think it was okay. This is a learned "moral." They're modifying their behavior to fit into society, and not face punishment.

That's the first fallacy...that they're born with it. Pedophilia is a result of past experiences. If they can convince us that it's something they're "born with", they're halfway there to getting it normalized and eventually accepted.

The title is stupid, too.

"SJWs are now defending pedophiles." Who are they defending them against? SJWs.
