People that get worked up over the technical use of the term "pedophile"
Are the ones so quick to point out that fricking a 14 year old technically isnt pedophilia hiding something? Seems they may have some skeletons in the closet the way they're so defensive over people screwing 14 year olds being called a pedo.

I generally take no issue with people criticizing misleading or imprecise language. It’s not really helpful to call every sexual deviant a pedophile — it cries wolf and dilutes the sting and stigma of the word, as we’ve seen with “racist” in recent years.

It is a difference without distinction.

Probably not. But you should consider hiding your ignorance of the English language. Words mean what they mean, not whatever the hell you want them to mean.

Is it? I’m no expert, but i believe that there would be a huge difference in say, a guy hooking up with a girl who is 16 and mature looking/well-developed who perhaps lied about her age.. vs molesting a child who hasn’t even hit puberty yet.. one is illegal, the other is inexcusable under any circumstance, and disgusting.

I don’t see how that’s true. Puberty is much less arbitrary than a codified age of consent. Sexual attraction to pre-pubescent children is not a biological imperative and is culturally rejected. This very website ogles minors routinely.

You don't understand the context of the controversy. Zach shall explain it again.
There were some Catholic priests who liked to have sex with teenage boys. That would make them 'gay'. But we cannot vilify gays because it's forbidden. So, we re-labeled the priests with the word 'pedophile'. So, that means 'gays = good' while 'pedophiles = bad.' Problem solved.

If the priests were diddling 14 year old girls then they would be 'very bad heteros'. But they didn't bother little girls because they were gays.

Personally, I believe 14 is too young. I also believe that 16 is too young. I think some of our states have laws that legalize marriage of 16 yr olds, with parental consent.

Elaborate, I’m all ears.

Be specific.

Some people just like the English language and bristle when they see it being misused. Words mean things. If you're into 8 year olds, you're a pedophile. If you're into 15 year olds, you're an ephebophile. I've never understood why people get so pissy when others point out the difference.

I dont think the problem most rational people have with priests is that theyre into men- i think it’s the fact that they diddled little kids... a lot of them were pre-pubescent (no link), but that’s a problem whether the kids were male or female.

Professionally, I have treated pedophiles and other sexual deviants. I could write on this topic for quite some time. However, there is really no point. They are all sexual predators with different target groups for any number of "reasons."

Some people like accuracy in language, especially something as important as criminal justice.

Just as "murderer" doesn't cover ever person that kills another person, "pedophile" doesn't cover every person that breaks consent laws.

I have no problem with our current consent laws and an adult (male or female) that has sex with a 14-year-old should go to prison. Using the correct definition doesn't change any of that.

The only people that defend sex offenders are sex offenders.

THAT is the big difference and it is a real difference

age of consent is a very difficult (and even more icky) subject, but never has AOC been accepted prior to puberty (at least in recorded history of civlization)
