it may only be 3 years, but she was still below the legal age of consent in the UK. that labels him as a peadophile to me..
Peadophile is > 5 years.

The 3 years difference with someone under aoc is statutory rape.

Technically, paedophilia only refers to pre-pubescent children. After that it's ephebophilia (sp?).

I think you've overreacted a little (read: a lot) to discontinue the friendship.

Right, so what if you had two people in the same school year. But because one was born before the other, there's an age difference of 15 to 16. Would you still say the boy (assuming hes the older) is a paedophile then?

just FYI, attraction to adolescents is technically called Ephebophilia.
yes.. underage sex is not permitted for a reason, and flounting that law will label them as a peadophile.. simple as..

Oh hi guys.

Paedophile does not equal child molester. You can be sexually attracted to something and not have sex with it. Right. I know paedophiles. They do not have sex with kids or look at child porn.

I am sexually attracted to girls, so does that make me a rapist?

No, but females over the age of 16 can consent. A child can NEVER consent. Wanting to have sex with someone who can never consent is not normal or healthy.

So you think that a 16 year old having sex with a 15 year old deserves the same punishment as a 50 year old having sex with a 10 year old?

Well no it's not normal in the sense that those who feel that desire aren't in the majority.

I know 13 year olds who are more mature than 21 year olds. Sure this isn't a general consensus, but it can be taken into account. Im still in favour of the Aoc though, it just makes sense to have one.

yep.. they are classed as underage for a reason, and the law should apply to everone, regardless of age. and the 10 year old is just worse anyway..

I don't think there's anything wrong merely being a paedophile. It's a sexual preference, no different to homosexuality or a foot fetish. However, I don't think this is you're asking; you're talking about paedophiles who carry out their desires. I believe it's wrong if they're aware of the mental (and maybe physical) scarring it can cause a child. Regardless, it's not on the same level as murder or genocide. I don't believe it's a mental illness, what they need is help to control their desires.

Exactly

I'd rather we help them than punish them

I also feel that there is a paedo culture, where any male who works with children is instantly regarded as a possible paedophile. It's very sad really.

Paedophiles aren't interested in 13 year olds, they are interested in children who have not started puberty. Who cannot possibly consent.

Ok, four people, 2 guys, 2 girls, 2 couples. All in year 11 at school.

Couple A both had their birthdays in December. In Janurary, they do it for the first time. Legally ok.

Couple B both have their birthdays in Feburary. In Janurary, they do it for the first time. Legally a form of rape.

That sound right?

Why is the 2nd one wrong?

I always thought the term was used for someone sexually attracted to a child, or anyone under the age of consent. I would not call a 13 year old an adult.


If I went out with a 13 year old, I would be called a paedophile, right? I'm 19 years old.

Very true. Teachers who chat a bit and aren't completely strict and formal at all times are called pervy or whatever, it's horrible.

they are both under the age of consent, but i think that that isnt as bad as an older guy doing the same with an underage girl.

but not as bad. the larger the age gap, the worse it is...

however, it is still illegal..

this is just my opinion.

No, because under 16s can be and are sexually physically mature. The term paedophile means someone who is attracted to children who are not sexually mature and are clearly physically children.

People would call you a paedophile if you went out with a 13 year old, but they would be technically incorrect. It would still be wrong, however.
