A man who is attracted to 16 or 17 year old girls isn't a pedophile. Pedophiles are attracted to children who have not reached puberty yet. People need to learn the difference!

That said, I find it very difficult to feel sorry for the 41 year old man.

This thread is depressing as hell. 16 or 17 year old girls being exploited but hey, he's not "classified" as a pedophile. I cannot believe there is anyone who thinks its not sick. Truly we are in the end times. I say this and I'm not even religious.

I do think it's wrong that he was preying on teenage girls but calling him a pedophile is inaccurate. He got what he deserved in the end, didn't he?

It would be inaccurate to call him a pedophile, but certainly accurate to say he is an ephebophile. His behavior is not psychopathic, but arguably sociopathic. I would not want to associate with him, and I'd be rooting for his wife in Divorce Court.

Calling him a pedophile is part of what he deserves. A lot of words have a technical definition but then they can also be used as an insult apart from that strict definition. You can make the case that such usage diminishes the word itself, but what I believe is most important in this case is to diminish the scum bag.

No, it basically just shows ignorance, becsuse theperson doesn't want to bother to use the word correctly. Why not call him what he is, an idiot?

What about 16 year olds with Pre-pubescent bodies?
All 16 year olds don't look like little adults,so then what?

I'm still thinking that this man would have sex with 14 year olds to0.

I hope the police dept doesn't waste their time and resources on this.

We don't know anything about this guy, except, he did want to have sex with a teenage girl. We don't know his motivation. But, we know it is breaking the law. And definitely exploiting a younger person for his own self serving perverted, warped, twisted, and disturbed reasons.

Why not just find an 18 year old? I have seen some 18 year old gals that look 14. That is what I find most offensive. He wanted a young teen.

Who knows if he has done this before? Or what he might have done...

Would any woman stand by her man after this?

As mentioned many times on this thread, the local age of consent was 16, which is why finding an 18 year old was unnecessary and no he was not breaking the law.
