A biological man is not a woman and a biological woman is not a man.

There is no reason for this to be controversial, but it 2022.

Should we treat paedophilia as a sexual inclination (like homosexuality) or like a disease?

Pedophillia is a crime
Fixed it. Nothing controversial now.

Right now it is classified as a disease in DSM-5 (american) and ICD-11 (WHO: international classification of diseases).

It's worth noting that pedophillia has been medicalised more recently and that there's a lot of controversy regarding it's inclusion.

Another, semi related case is that of transgenders, in ICD-10 transgenderism (or transexualism as it was known) was a scheduled disorder. However in the newest update, it has been removed. It shows how (perceived or actual) mental health "disorders" are always in flux.

But yeah, pretty controversial stuff. Even slightly alluding to it has derailed the thread.

Well... now it's been medicalised as Paedophilic disorder (and broken down into different subtypes). For example, imagine an individual who has sexual fantasises pertaining to prepubescent children & is actively seeking medical help for his "disease". They haven't consumed pornography with minors and haven't committed child sexual abuse.

As gross as this persons inclinations/orientation/disease/fetish/perversion[insert whatever you want to call it] may be, is that person committing crime? No they aren't - yet they're still a paedophile.

What's stopping a dictatorship from using the same therapy on pedophiles on the LGBT community?
You can't trial someone without evidence. If a pedophile never acts on their impulses then they're not harming anyone, but if they commit a crime relating to pedophillia then they should absolutely be punished for it.
I find it more disturbing that you're defending pedos on a student site.
That depends on the dictatorship...? I don't see how this is related to my post. For example, in Iran the state forcibly transitions homosexuals. e.g. gay man will be forced, using medical means into being a woman.

I'm not defending pedos lol. I'm saying that now, in this country, if someone has pedophillic thoughts, they can go to see a medical specialist. You don't just have to be a child molester to be a pedophile. Being consistently attracted to children (regardless if you have act on it) makes you a pedophile - "medically speaking".

You are defending pedophiles by saying that "only people who have commited child sex abuse are pedos"... In that case, you are leaving out a ton of people who are quite frankly.. pedos.

My main controversial question was this: Currently pedophillia is classified as medical disorder - do you agree?
