Born This Way: Sympathy and Science for Those Who Want to Have Sex with Children



avt-small.jpg Cord Jefferson

It's not easy to listen to Terry talk about the time he had sex with a seven-year-old girl. But after his psychotherapist put us in touch, he agreed to lay it all out for me during a phone call and email, and I was enthralled the way one might stare at a man falling from a bridge. Terry is 38, a small-business owner, and deeply religious

I don't think it's a sexual orientation. I do think it's a psychological issue and pedophiles should not be criminalized.

I'm not reading that but from the title alone I will say this: I will never have sympathy for anyone who harbors sexual feelings about a child. I find it disgusting and that's the end of that.

I tried reading it but it was too triggering. Now I had a panic attack and flashback.



But no it's not a sexual orientation.

Nope. It's a horrific mental illness. There will never be a time in the US where pedophilia is okay because children will never be able to legally consent to it.

long to read but i read most of it.




i do NOT think it is a sexual orientation... but i cant say it is a perversion either. i would say it is a fetish, a very sickening and scary and hurtful fetish. it has the power (unlike most sexual sprefernces) to ruin the lives of children before they even sexually mature... and its very sad....



i dont feel sorry for them tho. i think they can control themselves but they dont.

It's definitely a mental illness.. We arent biologically wired to diddle little kids.. Usually the pedophile was molested as a child, not always... But its not normal and should never be "accepted". It makes me sick how these nasty people get out of jail. They should get life.

This!

And I also think that the stigma needs to be removed so that Pedophiles can seek help WITHOUT fear

If they can get help before they hurt a child, everyone wins
