Top definition
A mental illness in which an adult or older teen (16+) is sexually attracted to prepubescent children (typically under 13).

The term is often incorrectly used by idiots to refer to anyone 18 or older who is attracted to someone under 18, but this use of the term is wrong. Attraction to teenagers is NOT pedophilia, and should not be mistaken as such. Genuine pedos should seek help for their condition, to avoid acting on their urges, but the term pedophilia is extremely overused by society nowadays.
Idiot: Hey, did you hear that Jim (age 19) has been talking to Sarah (age 16)? What a pedo - he needs to be locked up!

Normal Person: Are you stupid? That’s literally a 3 year age gap between two teens. Do you even know what pedophilia is? The age of consent is also 16 here, so it would be legal for them to date.

Idiot: You’re defending a pedo? You’re a pedo too then!!

Normal Person: *rolls eyes*

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?!"
