I was dumbfounded when I saw this op-ed by New Jersey lawyer Margo Kaplan in the New York Times yesterday. "Pedophilia: A Disorder, not a Crime" She talks about a website (which has all of 250 registered members) called "Virtuous Pedophiles" who have pedophiliac urges but don't act on them. She says these in the closet pedophiles "contemplate suicide." She says that if they reveal their urges, they won't get jobs. But oddly, she ignores the fact that anyone of these people can tell a therapist about their urges, and that the therapist has to keep it confidential. If the pedophile acts on his urge, then the therapist is obligated to go to the police. The author's piece is riddled with errors and quite frankly, made me very angry. http://www.nytimes.com/2014/10/06/opinion/pedophilia-a-disorder-not-a-crime.html Excerpt "Part of this failure stems from the misconception that pedophilia is the same as child molestation. One can live with pedophilia and not act on it. Sites like Virtuous Pedophiles provide support for pedophiles who do not molest children and believe that sex with children is wrong. It is not that these individuals are “inactive” or “nonpracticing” pedophiles, but rather that pedophilia is a status and not an act. In fact, research shows, about half of all child molesters are not sexually attracted to their victims." __ PS : Sorry about the typo in headline. Don't know how to fix.
