A sexual orientation that has been demonized and criminalized for centuries.
It is simply having a romantic, physical and sexual attraction towards children. It has been heavily misused to compare pedophiles with child molestors. Two different things.
Most pedophiles do not ever molest any children. We have doctor, teachers, artists, policitians, your regular joe, anyone really who is a pedophile.
It is also used to deny children from their own romantic, affectionate and sexual rights.
It is also used as a derogatory term for older people who want to have sex with the younguns.
Human: "Canada Street said somethin' about pedophilia....he said when he has kids, he might just put you to sleep like the rabid dog you are."
