    No it is a paraphilia (a "dangerous fetish" per se), not a sexuality. One can still be heterosexual whilst at the meantime having a sexual interest in children.
    I made a really thorough post explaining my understanding of the matter and for some reason it was deleted. :sigh: Sometimes I don't know why I bother.

    Edit: Oh, and P.S. ty a lot for using "whilst"!!! A dying word. I literally never see anyone use it nowadays.

    Lessen your tone, maybe; you come off as petulant.

    I want to say yes because I don't think they can control their attraction towards children but doesn't that make it somewhat acceptable? I believe being gay and other sexualities are not something the individual can choose and I accept them so going by that logic, I should accept pedophiles but I don't...this was a bad answer - sorry.

    Ceasing to respond to an abusive and generally unpleasant poster on an internet forum does not equate to cowardice. I also find it amusing that your hypocrisy stretches so far as to accuse someone of being a coward when you would never speak to people in person as you do from behind the safety of your computer screen. It is frankly astonishing that you are older than most people on here judging by the way you conduct yourself.

    It is clear that you are a profoundly troubled individual and my only emotional response is pity. You appear to feed off of hostility and gain some perverted satisfaction from belittling others as your post history makes so painfully clear in a long list of separate encounters stretching over a year and ranging from insulting someone's university to directing verbal abuse at someone because of minor punctuation errors. I will humour you with the response you crave - but in my own time. Some of us share our energies between activities outside of internet forums.

    The last part is irrelevant; there's nothing wrong with the opposite, so don't imply such! (In this context.)

    Stalking my posts again I see?

    Yes it's a shame, I like the word whilst & 'whom' which is also declining in usage.

    (Besides "amongst" and "whilst", archaic/obsolete but) there's also the word "alongst"!

    I challenge you to find me any modern text where someone uses the word 'alongst', at least the former 2 are still used to an extent

    I meant there's the amongst and whilst, and on top of that, besides this one being archaic/obsolete, there's alongst, and I love the word.

    The reason I said it so weirdly is because I wrote some of it, then kept adding onto the beginning part of the sentence, instead of formatting the entirety of it.

    I wasn't meaning to say or imply that amongst and whilst are obsolete.

    edit: I actually used "alongst" by accident, then searched up to see if it was a word. There was one context in which I preferred to use it (while doing chemistry actually.)

    I understood what you meant I just wanted you to try and actually find me any modern text that still used the word

    Probably won't, but I'll have a shot.

    There is a basis for calling it a mental disorder (although it's plainly still a sexuality) because we are categorically not supposed to be attracted to prepubescent children. You might cite fetish objects as a counter argument but even they have some association with a (sexually mature) person, nobody fetishises literally a disembodied pair of high heels say.

    Sexuality is not just gay and straight, when you have say a scat fetish it scarcely seems to matter whether it's a guy or girl's poo. Some sexualities thus have no relationship to the gender binary. Paedophilia would appear to be one of these for many child molesters.

    Perhaps I am too into my fetishes, unhealthily so, but absolutely there is gender preference within fetishism (some people will only be aroused by ladies' underwear, ladies' feet, and ladies' poo) and also gender-neutral fetishism (e.g.objectophilia).

    When someone ignored your unpleasant and abusive remarks, you said they were not cut out to be a lawyer. You cannot have it both ways. I truly think there is a basis for my allegation that you'll try to prove yourself by all means possible to prove you're cut out for uni. It makes a whole lot of sense, for why else would someone argue to the death about something which does not concern them and something about which they know very little? It's the most sensible explanation for why you behave like you do. I am not saying it's a bad thing, but it's something you need to be aware of and to cut back on.

    People often try to obfuscate the issue at hand by bringing up my previous posts as if I should be ashamed. They were very witty and well-written posts; shame is the furthest thing from my mind. I do appreciate that you are very busy completing your Access course, painstakingly pursuing those 45 credits at Distinction, and cannot commit too much time to frivolous things like this forum. It's fine.
