ah, but you see, pedophilia and breaking the law are completely different things.
just because all the popular pedophiles just so happen to be child rapists/molesters doesnt mean that all pedophiles are child rapists or molesters.
Pedophilia is a sexual attraction to children. It is a mental preference, like homosexuality. Be it the 4channers that like to see the occasional loli dojin or the hardcore "would you take a seat over there" people, each person who finds children attractive in any shape or form is a pedophile.
is pedophilia a crime? Not necessarily. Its just that molesting children IS.
a good analogy would be farming. The act of growing plants is by no means illegal. But if you grow Marijuana plants, then it becomes illegal.
Being a pedophile and liking little girls in itself is not illegal. Fact is, i can safely say a large amount of the community and a large part of history contain pedophiles at heart.
It is the crimes associated with pedophilia that is deplorable.
