Here's a question. Could pedophilia be considered an orientation? After all, true pedophiles in the classic sense of the term have an exclusive or nearly exclusive attraction to children, as in they have little to no sexual interest in adults. I'm not suggesting that pedophilia shouldn't be considered a disorder but can it also be considered a form of orientation? Given the risk of legitimizing abhorrent behaviour I realize this is scary territory but I raise it simply as food for thought.
Love is better than anger. Hope is better than fear. Optimism is better than despair. So let us be loving, hopeful and optimistic. And we’ll change the world.
