Society believes that? So that's why they have life without parole huh? I think you have your facts down incorrectly about what society believes.
I do not believe serial killers are curable.
Do people choose to be pedophiles?
What are its origins, whether biological or environmental?
Is it curable?
Where did I say it was curable or anything of the sort? If anything, it isn't and those who commit such acts should be sent to jail. That's as simple as it'll get.
I'm not going to debate the merits of pedophilia, and I will not give it any time of the day. I have no sympathy for those who commit the acts and I feel they should be punished to the maximum extent of the law.
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.
Why the heck should we ask them in the first place? Those questions are totally ridiculous in my mind. We cannot be grouped with child molesters. Pedophilia is not curable, and it is a criminal behavior.
And just because I hold these opinions I am less capable of being objective than you are? Really? Says who?
