    The word is what the word is. A male having sexual relations---rape or otherwise---has commited a homosexual act. A male man desiring to have sex with a boy is still a homosexual.

    I'll go by what the traditional meaning and understanding of what homosexaulity is----not a white-washed, feel-good, new age, Orwellian understanding of what you think it should be.
    Ah, so you are defining homosexual purely in behavioural terms. The incidence of homosexual behavior is far higher than the incidence of exclusive homosexual attraction. I know men who identify as heterosexual and are married with children who would be classified as "homosexual" under your definition. It would be intellectually dishonest to use self reporting stats that use a different definition of homosexual to argue a higher prevalence of homosexual child molesters. There is no way to discern how many people are homosexual under your definition.

    Oddly enough, opportunist offenders who molest both boys and girls would also meet you definition.

    It can be compartmentalized. Any inherent distress is caused by a hostile environment and lack of sex ed for gay youth. This aspect of distress is easier to brush aside than you think, once he figures out 1) attraction is meant to be enjoyed, 2) the feelings are so frequent that nothing can be done to stop it, 3) where's the harm in it? All that considered, within a few days he can realize all that hostility is overblown.

    The distress that doesn't fade quickly is the fear that others in that environment will find out. Then it becomes a battle lasting years, a totally unnecessary one. In more accepting places, there are kids coming out at 12-13 who don't seem to face an internal struggle remotely comparable to an adult pedophile.

    I don't see cultural relativism in his point, in fact exactly the opposite, and if that's your best case for homosexuality being "not ok"...

    Another thing to remember is that 2/3 rds of pedophile victims are girls---as men are responsible for virtually all acts of pedophilia. However, all men (or transexuals) who rape boys are by the very definition of the word, homosexuals.

    MALE HOMOSEXUALS COMMIT A DISPROPORTIONATE NUMBER OF CHILD SEX ABUSE CASES
    Homosexual apologists admit that some homosexuals sexually molest children, but they deny that homosexuals are more likely to commit such offenses. After all, they argue, the majority of child molestation cases are heterosexual in nature. While this is correct in terms of absolute numbers, this argument ignores the fact that homosexuals comprise only a very small percentage of the population.

    The evidence indicates that homosexual men molest boys at rates grossly disproportionate to the rates at which heterosexual men molest girls. To demonstrate this it is necessary to connect several statistics related to the problem of child sex abuse: 1) men are almost always the perpetrator; 2) up to one-third or more of child sex abuse cases are committed against boys; 3) less than three percent of the population are homosexuals. Thus, a tiny percentage of the population (homosexual men), commit one-third or more of the cases of child sexual molestation.

    Why even bring up homosexuality in a thread about pedophiles?
