    Some pedophiles experience attraction to both adults and children, and oftentimes, their sexual preference for adults is independent of their sexual preference for children (and often they don't even have a preference for the latter). However, true pedophiles exclusively desire children, even if they have adult relationships as a sort of "cover."

    So, there doesn't appear to be any consistent correlation between sexual preference and the sex of their child victims.

    As an example of this, here's just the straight-up numbers: almost all pedophiles are men. About 1/3 of them prey on male children. But only about 2-5% of the population is gay. So obviously, there's a lot more pedophiles who molest male children than there are gay people.

    The reason for this may be because, socially, a man has more access to male children than he does female children. Pedophiles usually molest children they know. So this could be a family member (who would have access to children of either sex), but also something like a scout leader, or a coach, who would probably only have access to male children.

    Pedophiles are fundamentally opportunistic. Some do prefer one sex over another, but their primary attraction is to children.
    How do you explain that all the priests molested only boys no girls.

What I do believe, NP, is that you keep bringing the issue up is because it makes you feel morally superior.

    Something I've noticed is that none of the threads (which have been thankfully few) that advocate adult/minor sexual relationships have been started by any of the gay members of the forum (that I know of). I condemn pedos equally, no matter who their preferred victims are.
    wow that is pretty heavy but you are wrong. I am just trying to find out how everyone feels on this issue. Some of my liberal and gay friends get all bent out of shape when I bring up subjects like this but I would like to learn.

    A person who is solely attracted to children would seek the Priesthood for easy access to either boys or girls. Since Catholic rituals traditionally use boys in services and often had boys choirs, a male pedophile with a preference for male children would naturally gravitate to this role. It grants him easy and secret access without the pressure of pretending to like women, or dealing with gay men.
    How do we know these gay pedophile priests are not attracted to adults?

    Or how liberals object to blanket statements being made about them while having no trouble making blanket statements about others?

    Evidence for this?

    DUDE!!! This is YOUR thread. Do you even bother to READ the responses for comprehension??????

    1. Current mental health liturature states pedophiles have no sexual orientation unless it is one for children. (That means they are neither hetero, nor homosexual).
    2. The same mental health liturature indicates that pedophilia is developed prior to puberty. (That means before they are even old enough to have sex).
    3. Priests have access to girls and boys and there ARE pedophile priests who have molested little girls.
    4. There ARE gay priests, but they are caught with ADULT males (16 and older).
    5. Pedophile Priests only abuse pre-teen boys and/or girls, NEVER adult men or women.
    6. The DSM IV definition of "pedophile" is one who is attracted to and attempts to engage children 13 and under in sexual activity.

    Is that clear enough?

    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.

    No he's right.

    Many Gays who hate their Gayness think that by attacking other Gays they can convince others that they themselves are not Gay. They have a strange idea that the more they hate Gays, the less Gay they appear.

    But the opposite is true. The more frequently someone attacks Gays the more eyebrows are raised that this person might themselves be a Gay.

    Somehow, I doubt it.

    The best way to hide one's Gayness is to make it appear that sexuality and Gayness don't really matter to them.

    That way no one's suspicions are "aroused".

    Again, access. Alter... boys.

    Although it's worth noting that girls have been molested by priests too.
