Further, that some prefer boys, some girls, and some both. This preference is established BEFORE a pedophile reaches puberty, suggesting it may very well be a distinct (albeit harmful and destructive) sexual orientation.
The literature I was using was older than I thought. Sorry.
In any case this literature does not identify pedophiles as either homosexual or heterosexual. That makes my vote for "pedophile" alone.
I think the reason it seems more prevalent among boys is because males have more social access to boys than girls, and boys are starting to report it more.

If I stop responding it doesn't mean I've conceded the point or agree with you. It only means I've made my point and I don't mind you having the last word. Please wait a few minutes before "quoting" me. I often correct errors for a minute or two after I post before the final product is ready.
Can't we just turn Congress off and then turn it back on again?
If a man molest a little boy I don't care if you label him "gay" or "pedophile" so long as you can correctly describe that man as dead.
