    So you think homosexuality is a disorder too?

    No, because it's not harmful or debilitating.

    No more so than being left-handed.

    Neither is pedophilia if you don't act on it.

    I had no idea there was support group for pedophiles who don't act on their urges. This article states that according to some MRI's these men were born this way. A push to call it a disorder rather than a crime.What are your thoughts?

    ETA- for the grammar nazis, autocorrect misspelled pedo in my title
    All pedophiles that rape young children, especially 12 and under, may have various mental or personaility disorders, but all are criminals---and all should be put to death ASAP.

    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.

    They're "by the very definition of the word" pedophiles.

    Find another excuse to hate homosexuals. This one isn't convincing anyone but your fellow haters.

    Male heterosexuals with pedophilia cannot molest male children?

    The reasoning of this paragraph switches logic midstream. In the first sentence, the fact of a man molesting a girl makes him a pedophile, while in the second sentence the fact of a man molesting a young boy makes him a homosexual. You have to pick one: is it the fact of him molesting a child or is it the gender of that young child the theme you want to go with?

    I believe neither of those to be true.
    Agreed, neither is a choice.
    Acting on homosexual orientation hurts no one, so there is no reason to suppress the urges.
    Acting on a predilection to pedophilia hurts children, so acting on them is a crime.
