It's a slippery slope, I agree. And I have nothing but contempt for these people that act on their urges. It should be considered wrong, because it *is* wrong. And I do think some paedophiles are utterly without remorse and they are the lowest scum to walk the earth. I do wonder, though, how different some outcomes could be if people with these urges/attractions felt more able to access help and support. Will have to go digging but I remember a case in Europe somewhere where a man with 'minor attraction' begged to be castrated so that he wouldn't act on his desires.
I'm on the end of the scale that tends to see it as a sickness, and sick people need help. I don't see much point in comparing it with other sicknesses as being more or less worthy or ok - sickness is sickness. There's a difference between that and then making choices to act on that sickness. If it's acknowledged and made clear that there is help or support out there, perhaps it wouldn't be driven underground and we could better protect our children... I don't know for sure, but I would love this to be the case.
