a sickness where a person is attracted to children instead of adults. A favorite spot for them is the internet where they can attempt to meet children on internet message boards and chat rooms. Also usually a history of pedophilia runs in the family.

2.
From the Greek 'Paedo' which means 'Child' and 'Phile' which means 'Love'
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.
There are pedophiles just as there are homosexuals. The big difference is pedophiles are todays 'designated perverts' by society in its big, increasing need to hate on someone. The more we keep pedophilia as a taboo and a dark-underground mystery the less we're gonna know the truth behind it.

An automatic death sentence if you are in prison. >:^]
At least the homicidal convicts help us get rid of pedophiles by killing them off.

4.
Sexual attraction to pre-pubescent children, usually under the age of thirteen.

It is also used as a derogatory term for older people who want to have sex with the younguns.
My dad told me that most men around the age of forty have pedophilia in them and I was like "What the fuck dad?!"

5.
A sickness in which an adult is sexually attracted to children. Some of these people clamor for "rights" and even offer the twisted idea that we are denying children their rights by classifying pedophilia as what it is.

Pedo: "we are not child molesters! some of us have respectable jobs and make a lot of money! even if we did abuse children, who are you to deny their right to be abused?!"

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."

Pedophilia is wrong... it's paedophilia.
One guy: "Dude, I think he like pedophilia"

Another guy: "That's wrong on so many levels - it's PAEDOPHILIA!"

7.
The act of having feelings and/or contact between children and adults. An awful practice. BTW, Homosexuality is a lifestyle, a choice made between two consenting adults. Pedophilia is scarring a child for life, not 'liberating them emotionally'. Tricking a child and then having conctact is just plain wrong.
Pedophilia is an awful choice. Pedophiles are sick, tormented human beings.
