What is a pedophile?

I goggled -what is a pedophile?

this is what came up.... 


A person who is sexually attracted to children.

I continued researching this and was very upset by Wikipedia's explanation 

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

This article is about the sexual interest in prepubescent children. For the sexual act, see Child sexual abuse. For the primary sexual interest in 11–14 year old pubescents, see Hebephilia. For mid-to-late adolescents (15–19), see Ephebophilia.
Not to be confused with Paraphilic infantilism.

As a medical diagnosis, pedophilia, or paedophilia, is defined as a psychiatric disorder in persons who are 16 years of age or older typically characterized by a primary or exclusive sexual interest in prepubescent children (generally those under the age of 14, though onset of puberty varies). 

What upset me is that it is defined as a psychiatric disorder.  Now there are women who are sexually attracted to men or men who are sexually attracted to women. Some people are attracted to the same sex, people who are attracted to blonde hair, green eyes, people attracted to piercings, nice bodies, tattoos ect.  none of these people are defined of having a psyciatric disorder.  because being sexually attracted to someone isn't a disorder. Its who they are, and mental help cant change who someone truly is.   
Classifying Pedophilia as a psyciatric disorder is so unfair to the victims.  It's like saying...oh they have a disease , it wasn't their fault.  So I goggled disease
A disease is any disturbance or anomaly in the normal functioning of the body that probably has a specific cause and identifiable symptoms.
Diseases are one of the factors threatening us from having a properly functional life. Throughout our history, epidemics have caused the extinction of whole populations. Over the last century, man has discovered many microorganisms that cause diseases in humans and animals, and has learned how to protect himself from them, by either prevention or treatment.

prefer to call pedophiles their true names. Perverts!   what do you think? do you think pedophiles have a mental disability that can be cured with treatment?


  1. I remember reading this about a year ago and was pissed too. I was looking for something anything to make sense of my life. 18 months ago my DD told me what Daddy was doing to help her sleep. He is in jail for the next 25 years. I am sorry that almost no one believed you. I look forward to reading your blog, I love that you are taking back your freedom.

    1. Elizabeth god bless you and your baby! You are in my heart!

  2. I'm not agreeing or disagreeing with you, however pedophila is a psychiatric disorder. At some point in that persons life, they themselves were victims to the same thing you where. Where it was exposed to them or it physically happened to them. At that point, its really up to the individual how to handle and what to take from those experiences. I'm not saying everyone who is touched will touch another, its all based on that person personally on how they will handle the situation. I'm glad you're making a stand not only for yourself but giving people out there who have gone through those things similar to you the opportunity to become the change.
    As far as wikipedia goes, its basically a public forum and you can add information to it.
    I wish you luck on your travels and I admire your courage to facing fears you've encountered.

    1. sexually abusing someone for their own sexual desires is a choice. this whole disorder stuff is a cop out for people not accepting responsibility for their actions
