Quite frankly this article disturbs me. But nothing that the Los Angeles Times can print should surprise me anymore.

Now, many experts view it as a sexual orientation as immutable as heterosexuality or homosexuality. It is a deep-rooted predisposition limited almost entirely to men that becomes clear during puberty and does not change. The best estimates are that between 1% and 5% of men are pedophiles, meaning that they have a dominant attraction to prepubescent children.
Many researchers taking a different view of pedophilia

No, it's not.

It's a power trip for men who may suffer from some form of mental illness. JMO

The biological theory of pedophilia is generally accepted by the mental health field.

People do not choose to be sexually attracted to children.
People can choose to not act upon that attraction.

And if they act on that "attraction" or can't "help" themselves in anyway, they need to be retired from life

You really don't know what's in Pandora's Box until you open it. But once opened you can't close it again.

There's nothing inherently contradictory about the categories "sexual orientation" and "abnormal sexual behavior." We may only designate things we like, or at least tolerate, as "orientations" but that's just a peculiarity of our usage.

Pedophilia is one of many paraphilias--or to use the prescientific term, "perversions"--which can fit into both categories.

Completely in agreement, with both statements. There's really not much else to say. I'm not only protective of someone putting their hands on my kids - NO CHILD ANYWHERE AND ANY TIME should EVER be subjected to a sexual predator. Ask any reputable psychologist if there is a cure for pedophilia - there isn't. I might not necessarily require a bullet to the brain for a known offender, but they should be quarantined to only be around others of their kind and never among the rest of society.
