    Re: Why is Pedophilia Categorized as a Disorder?

    My argument, fb, is that the same logic and reasoning should apply to each and every sexual orientation. If homosexuality is not a disorder according to certain reasoning, then that same reasoning...

    Re: Why is Pedophilia Categorized as a Disorder?

    Are necrophilia and pedophilia matters of "judgment, reliability or general social and vocational capabilities"? I don't think so. What does or doesn't give you a boner has nothing to do with...

    With your logic, because there is no real agreement among the experts, we can't take APA classification as gospel. So stop claiming that pedophilia is a mental illness because APA says it is. And...
