Pedophilia

Epstein is not a pedophile. He is attracted to post pubescent girls. A pedophile likes them before they grow pubic hair and such. Why do people keep calling him a pedophile?

2. Because...

Some of us know the actual meaning of words.

Like when the left calls Ted Nugent a pedophile.

Its not rocket science.

18. What I'm asking you is.

"Epstein is not a pedophile. He is attracted to post pubescent girls. A pedophile likes them before they grow pubic hair and such. Why do people keep calling him a pedophile?"

Who said Epstein was only attracted to post pubescent girls? Did Epstein say that? His attorney? His victims? Alex Acosta?

Your definition of pedophile is correct I just want to know who said that about Epstein and how do they know.

19. I am basing my OP

On what we do know. We have no evidence that he has ever molested prepubescent girls, so why throw the pedophile label at him? It diminishes the word "pedophile". Of course I cannot prove that anyone is not sexually attracted to first graders, but without knowledge of it, I won't throw that label on them.

Missed your comment the first time.

4. So you're saying that raping a 14 yo girl is NOT Pedophilia

The law says ANYONE under 18 is off limits.

Why do people keep calling him a pedophile? because he is.

6. I am not saying it

The dictionary says it.
Pedophilia, or paedophilia, is a psychiatric disorder in which an adult or older adolescent experiences a primary or exclusive sexual attraction to prepubescent children. Although girls typically begin the process of puberty at age 10 or 11, and boys at age 11 or 12, criteria for pedophilia extend the cut-off point for prepubescence to age 13. A person who is diagnosed with pedophilia must be at least 16 years old, and at least five years older than the prepubescent child, for the attraction to be diagnosed as pedophilia.Wikipedia

10. No...

Actually it does not.

Pedophilia is a psychiatric disorder.

Sexual assault is a crime and against the law.

12. Incorrectly applying the label

Pedophile to Epstein diminishes the meaning of the word. Being sexually attracted to/raping/trafficking a developed 14 year old is not the same as having the same attraction to a 3, 4 or 6 year old. Both are sick fucks, but the evilness of a pedophile who acts on it is even worse IMO.

I'm sure many men have unwittingly "checked out" a 15 year old at the beach who could look 18. Not the same as ogling a 5 year old.

21. Cultural morality and boundaries. These standards very in different parts of the world.

In the 1800 it was common for girls of 14 to marry right here in our own nation.

7. No...

Sexual assault of someone under the age of 18 is NOT pedophilia.

Pedophilia is a "disorder" where an adult is sexually attracted to someone who is prepubescent (children).

17 year old boys are NOT pedophiles.

So no, I am sorry but you are incorrect.

8. Well.......Pedophilia IS the sexual attraction to pre-pubescent individuals.

Some pedophiles seek boys, some seek girls.

The law does stipulate that certain post-pubescent individuals are not of legal age to consent to sexual intercourse. Some states make exception for "Romeo and Juliet" relationships where a 17 year old is intimate with an underage person; this prevents them from being labeled as a sexual predator.

(Most dads would be grabbing a shotgun if some 29 year old came sniffing around their 15 year old daughter.)

I'm not that familiar with the age range or physical characteristics of Epstein's targets. So, his actions could well be criminal, but not correctly called pedophilia.

11. Why do people keep calling him a pedophile?

Well - first of all - because it sounds "nasty"

AND

some just follow the crowd, and/or are unaware of the actual definition of pedophilia.

Also age of consent varies by state - and country - - -

In North America, the legal age of consent relating to sexual activity varies by jurisdiction.

The age of consent in Canada is 16. As of August 2018, each U.S. state has set its age of consent at either age 16, age 17, or age 18.

The age of consent in Mexico is complex. Typically, Mexican states have a "primary" age of consent (which may be as low as 12), and sexual conduct with persons below that age is always illegal. Sexual relations which occur between adults and teenagers under 18 are left in a legal gray area: laws against corruption of minors as well as estupro laws can be applied to such acts, at the discretion of the prosecution. These laws are situational and are subject to interpretation. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ages_of_consent_in_North_America



 flesh - puberty
 pale blue - 12
light blue - 13
sky blue - 14
 light blue - 15
 navy blue - 16
 army green - 17
 lime green - 18

have seen absolutely nothing in all the reports that indicate, or claim - that the partners involved in this affair were prepubescent

from the excerpt above - "Sexual relations which occur between adults and teenagers under 18 are left in a legal gray area . . . "

Anyhoo

From all the articles posted - I've seen no evidence - or claim, for that matter - that prepubescent kids were involved.

15. I hate it when people play fast and loose with the language.

It dilutes the meaning, and muddies communication.
