It is, actually.
"Pedo", a Latin word, not a Greek one, means "foot".
I think you guys are thinking about the Greek word, "Paedo", for child.
Therefore, someone that has a love for children is a "paedophile", and a "paediatrician" is a child doctor, while a "pedophile" is someone with a love for feet, and a "pediatrician" is a foot doctor.
Does this not negate all of your definitions?
Person 2: Sick! How utterly sick!
Person 1: No, as in P-E-D-O, pedophile, not P-A-E-D-O, paedophile.
Person 2: What's the difference?
END OF CONVERSATION; PERSON 1 HAS LEFT.
Pedophilia is a mental disorder, not a sexual orientation or lifestyle choice. Specifically, it is a Paraphilia. The Paraphilias are characterized by recurrent, intense, sexual urges, fantasies, or behaviors that involve unusual objects, activities, or situations. Other examples of Paraphilias are Exhibitionism, Fetishism, Sexual Masochism, and Sexual Sadism.
Terms like "pedosexual" are misnomers and nothing more than political activism on the part of organized groups of pedophiles attempting to legitimize and legalize their abuse and predation of children.
People state that pedos don't hurt children, only child molesters do, that's fucking bullshit. "Love" is the first criteria, I can't believe that somewhat would write that If a pedo knew what true pain was then they would know that is the most disgusting act to ever peform on a child.
Oh yea and whoever diagnosod these sick and heinous people with a "mental disorder," is probably one themselves. Pull your head out of your ass people, it's a sick fucking fetish, acted out by vile human beings who cannot tell right from wrong.
Sure we all have fetishes, some may be even a little twisted, that still doesn't give you the right to act out on them. Learn to control yourselves.
It's fortunate my aunt found out early about this sick act, it could've been a lot worse on her. Fuck pedophiles.
