It would be interesting to talk about female pedophiles and how they are different from men.
Apparently, there are no female pedophiles, pedophile meaning someone who has a preferential interest in children under 13; that is, they are more attracted to children under 13 than they are to adults. Any female child molesters are likely to be non-pedophilic molesters or situational molesters. Apparently only men are preferential molesters; i.e., pedophiles.
The use of the word pedophile for anyone other than a preferential child molester or someone with a preferential sexual interest in children under 13 is simply false.
In the overwhelming number of cases where the word pedophile is being used nowadays, the person is either teleiophilic – that is, completely normal in age orientation, being maximally attracted to females 16+ and attracted to adults. That is 81% of all males, including me, believe it or not. Maximal attraction to 16 and 17 year old girls is not pathological at all. Not only is it not disordered, but it’s not even abnormal. In fact, it is much more abnormal to not be not maximally attracted to 16 and 17 year old girls. This means you are either a pedophile, a hebephile, gay, or dead.
Pedophile is also false when it means “attracted to girls 13-15.” Even teleiophilic men react to pubescent girls at a very high level of 86% of maximum. Literally the only difference between hebephiles and normal men is that hebephiles have preferential maximum attraction to 13-15 year old girls, and normal men have an attraction of 86% of maximum. That’s not much of a difference. Also a number of hebephiles have little to no interest in females over 15, which is odd to me.
Attraction to very young girls under 13 is not necessarily pedophilic either. Normal men are attracted to little girls at 60% of maximum. Pedophiles are attracted to them at maximum and often have little attraction for adults. Those are the main differences between pedophiles and normal men.
Adult men having sex with 13-17 year old girls is not pedophilic behavior. In fact, the American Psychological Association has said that it is probably a part of normal male sexuality if we speak in historical or anthropological terms. Legally speaking, this behavior is often statutory rape, and men who do this are called statutory rapists. In cases where it is legal, it is properly considered legal and normal behavior in a psychological sense anyway. Granted, many people have moral objections to this at least at certain ages anyway.
Most child molesters are non-pedophilic or situational child molesters. So pedophile isn’t even a correct word to use for most child molesters! The crime itself is called child molestation, not pedophilia. Child rape is a different crime. Child molestation should not be referred to as child rape because child molestation is often psychologically consensual, whereas child rape never is. Further, child rape is a much worse crime than child molestation in most cases.
Sex between teens 13-17 is never pedophilic or even child molestation. It may be statutory rape but mostly it’s just completely normal sexual behavior. You simply cannot molest a teenage girl. Nor can you molest a woman.
Any sex between an adult man and a girl under 13 is properly termed child molestation. In a minority of cases, the adults who do this are pedophiles, but in most cases they are non-pedophilic molesters. The best way to describe non-pedophilic molesters is to call them criminals. They are driven more by antisocial behavior than by deviant sexual interests.
Since nobody seems to be able to use the words pedophilia and pedophile correctly, we should just stop using them. Every time you want to say pedophile, just say child molester. Every time you want to say pedophilia, just say child molestation.
Pedophilia is simply a way of thinking or a sexual orientation like homosexuality or bisexuality, and it is biological in all cases, like a lot of homosexuality. It’s 100% legal. A pedophile is simply a man who thinks in a particular way in sexual sense or has a particular biological sexual orientation similar to male homosexuals. It is not against the law to be a pedophile.
