If you know a paedophile is a paedophile, then they have acted on their urges, otherwise you wouldn't know. Its not something you would shout about is it.
Not necessarily, they could have been busted for child pornography. And I wouldn't call that acting on their urges, but controlling them.

No, but we're talking hypothetically; never in the OPs proposition does it mention conviction. Hypothetically, he could have confided in a trusted friend, they let it slip, it gets around very quickly.

Yet that is illegal, for now.

Yes its illegal, but what would you prefer: 5 million paedophiles watching child pornography or 5 million paedophiles kidnapping and raping children?

I'd imagine sporting a moustache would be enough for you to burn his house down. You know, just to be on the safe side.
Yeah, definately mate, cracking comment there.

If out of the ordinary sexual preferences are classed as mental illnesses, e.g. Paedophilia, then homosexuality should be too.

How is paedophilia abnormal? The age of sexual consent is socially constructed.

Girls reach menarche around the age of 12 - and are thus able to biologically copulate and reproduce, therefore it is natural for a male of the species to want to mate with them, no? (and vice versa for gonadarche)

I walked to school from the age of 5 by myself. I lived close to school though.

I was allowed out on the streets with my friends all the time from that age. I think it did us a lot of good. We never really went more than a mile from home though, just because we all lived fairly close together. We would all just go out in the morning and come back sometime at night. We'd hang out on the streets, or jump fences and play football, climb trees or go visit someone's house, or go to the park. We particularly liked burning things. When we got hungry we'd just go to whoever's house was nearest and get some food, before going out again. Our parents never knew where we were all the time, as this was before mobile phones. But we knew how to be responsible. We knew nearly everyone, we knew how to cross roads, and ride a bike, and we've all turned out good.
I used to do that as well ( well not the going to school on my own bit) but I was born in the 1970s and I feel it was a different world to the one we live in today even though there probably were paedos and suchlike around. I spent much of my childhood either at my friends house or in the park and like you my parents didnt always know where I was. We had no mobile phones either. I have also turned out good.

Presumably most fathers are attracted to women? (There's even some evidence he's had sex with some, rather than just look at pictures :shock:). Once they have a daughter who grows up to be 16/17+ and is obviously going to be sexually attractive; should the father no longer be allowed to live with them? I mean, he's attracted to women, right?

I don't class out of the ordinary sexual preferences as mental illness. Some people like to be handcuffed and whipped as a part of their "routine"; others like to be pissed on; I wouldn't say that makes them mentally ill. Personally I enjoy dressing up as an adult baby.........erm.......just kidding

the whole family is just plain wierd... i feel for the kids... the daughter is 17ish i think and the boy is only 4 i think (has older one from previous marriage too) he was all over the papers AND admitted it too

So liking toddlers is normal?

No, no it's not. Which is why paedophilia is abnormal.

Define "pedo". A PE teacher at my school gets accused of being a paedophile just because he puts his arms round girls after netball games (which he stays after his working hours have ended to referee, which he arranges in his spare time, which he arranges fundraisers for to go on tour).

Also we have people like Chris Langham, the comedian/actor from The Thick Of It. He's probably what you'd call a "pedo", but (allegedly) downloaded pictures of abused children to comfort himself, as he was abused when he was young.

I reckon if a paedophile moved into my street, I'd let them be, but still watch I was careful. I reckon socially, being or being accused to be a paedophile is the worst thing you can be, so I think I'd let him live his life. Also, out of interest, did anyone catch Secret Life on channel 5 last year? It was a great drama about a recovering paedophile.

But....
No, this is not a time for the "normal is just social conventions of the time" debate...

I'd like 5 million pedophiles managing to do neither of these things.
