    Sounds deviant to me.

    So you think the Mormons here in the US that were marrying 12 year old girls should not be in prison I guess.

    You are from an uneducated world. You don't understand how sexual orientation and sexual behavior work and how the two are different concepts. You don't understand that sexual attraction has nothing to do with attraction to children... that this is mutually exclusive to sexual orientation.



    No, since morality is relative, your comment above is meaningless.
    Sexual orientation is another Lib-Com buzz word.

    The APA said pedophilia was a sexual orientation one day, and said it wasn't the next. So not even the APA can agree on what sexaul orientation even encompasses.

    Sell your snake oil to someone else.

What you have been posting on this issue demonstrates a decided lack of education on sexuality and demonstrates nothing but an anti-gay agenda. Here is some research that demonstrates that you don't know what you are talking about:

    Are Children at Risk for Sexual Abuse by Homosexuals?

    In this study, of 269 children who had been abused (including 76 boys) only TWO were homosexual. The research determined that this was within the context of the percentage of homosexual population or LESS.

    http://www.robinjwilson.com/articles...age%20pref.pdf

    In this study, homosexual males who were attracted to adults of the same sex, and heterosexual males who were attracted to adults of the opposite sex were shown erotic pictures of male children. There was NO difference between the sexual stimulation of both groups.

    So, what have we learned from this... other than you don't know what you are talking about? We have learned that there is a difference between sexual attraction to adults and sexual attraction to children and that the two do NOT connect. We have learned that male homosexuals molest boys at either the same percentage as there are homosexuals in the population or LESS. In essence, we have learned that nothing you have said has an credibility, and it just comes from an uneducated conservative anti-gay position. You have now been taught the facts. You're welcome.
    You still haven't given the hard figures on what percentage of pedophillic victims are boys and what percent girls.

    As I go by the common English lanuguage, ANY male on boy sexual act would automatically make the aggressor a homosexual.

    I do not, and will not buy your political sentiments that males who rape boys are not actual homosexuals. This is done for a pure political agenda of promoting homosexuality and for the decriminalization of pedophillic acts.

    A person can have homosexual desires or thoughts or impulses---but that does not make them a bona-fide homosexual under they physically undertake the act.

    Link, and even so. Who cares. This is 2014 not 1895.

    True. It is a different decade. But does that really mean much? Humans are built about the same and considering the fact that even now the age of consent varies strongly from country to country? I don't think much of toughy feely arguments like I don't like pedophiles. I would like to know why you think that sex harms children of say 11 or 12 but not the 13 years old?

    I suppose a line has to be drawn somewhere? That's all I can think. But if any adult engages in sex with a minor, they need to go to jail for a very long time.

    That is absolutely right, if it indeed harms the child. There is reason to believe that this is not the case, when the surrounding society does not vilify such practice. If so, we would be making a mistake in vilifying the behavior. Maybe a little like we might be off on multiple husband marriages.

    So you are justifying child rape?
