I know emotions tend to run high when children are involved (as they probably should), but the objective scientist in me wants to put emotions and politics aside and ask...
Do people choose to be pedophiles?
What are its origins, whether biological or environmental?
Is it curable?
They are not questions i've seen brought up in this discussion, one wonders if they are thought to be irrelevant. Maybe we don't want to ask them. Its simple to just call sometihing EVIL and be done with the debate, the GLBT Community knows this all too well. You'll have to forgive me for not wanting to be reduced to such simplicity.
