    Good job. You just pwned yourself.
    Seems like most threads in here eventually get taken over by some desperate house wives drama queen that wants to discuss each other instead of the subject and that is when I move on. I wish there was a different forum in here for people like you to rant and rave so the adults could civilly debate and discuss.

    If the underlying cause is the disorder pedophilia, then it is about attraction and sex. Unlike sexual orientations, however, pedophilia produces urges with in the pedophiles, similar to the way the kleptomania produces urges in the kleptomaniac. The intensity of the disorder can result in overwhelming urges. This is one of the reasons why it is important to know the underlying causes.

    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
    It is a mental disorder that becomes a crime if acted upon.

    I'm entirely for support groups and the like that help people with such urges avoid acting upon them.

    Most threads here get infested by uneducated anti-gay ideologues, but fortunately, once they are shown to be misinformed or completely wrong, they usually scurry off, whining.

    but they tend to scurry out as soon as there is another thread that has anything to do with human sexuality, beating the same dead horse yet again.
