Quote from: doorknob on July 10, 2016, 11:22:37 PMThat's nice.I'm saying a 16 year old doesn't want a 30 year old. Now that's not to say when that same 16 year old turns 20 they may go for up to ten years apart. Maybe even more than that as age increases. As you get older you get less picky in some areas and more picky in others. And there is nothing wrong with a 20 year old going with a 30 year old. That's different because a 20 year old probably has enough experience to handle a 30 year old. A 16 year old does not. All other ages that are past 20 are fair game once it passes that point you're old enough to make that decision. But a 16 year old is still a child. They do not have the level of maturity and self confidence that comes only with age.
Quote from: Hijiri Byakuren on April 14, 2016, 10:45:23 PMThis is one of those questions that tends to rear its ugly head around here every so often, so I figure a dedicated discussion is in order. I'll kick this off by trying to lay out some basic issues that merit discussion.If pedophilia is a choice, why do people choose to do it?Should pedophilia be considered a mental illness?Is pedophilia a sexual orientation? If not, why should it be distinguished from sexual orientation?What sort of carrot/stick approach would be best to prevent pedophiles from crossing into criminal territory? (Especially since current punishments don't seem to discourage a fair number of them.)If I think of anymore relevant questions, I'll update this post.
Quote from: alexxmedeiros on October 14, 2016, 12:05:33 AMPedophilia is a choice and people choose to commit acts of pedophilia because they love their sin. They hate God but want his gift of pleasure, so they look elsewhere for this gift of pleasure and steal it from God by twisting it.
QuotePedophilia can only be considered a mental illness if alcoholism, drug addiction, homosexuality, adultery, etc... can also be considered mental illnesses.
QuoteWhat the heck even is a "sexual orientation"?
QuoteThere is only one way that God has given us the gift of sex and it is enjoyed only in marriage, outside of marriage sex is still physically enjoyable but it is an expression of your hatred and rebellion against God.
QuoteNot sure I understand your last question but the real isssue here is, assuming that you're an atheist by other posts of yours that I've read
Quotewhy is it wrong for pedophile to molest a child?
