Hi,NCAR,i want to challenge to to my debate topic.I know this sounds weird,but in my opinion pedophile is a sexual orientation just like among homo,hetero,and asesexual.In DSM-V the (fifth edition) pedophile has been accepted as a sexual orientation so long as their action does not cause harm to children.

You seriously don't know who pedophile is ?? Okay,i accepted,then i will explain you according to the medical definition.DSM-V define pedophile as sexual preference toward prepubertal or early pubertal children (generally age 14 or younger ).In large part of the world an adult having sex with 14 years old young teen is not consider as socially taboo while if you take a look at age of consent in most european country and latin america,it is 14.In some countries such as spain and japan it's even as low as 13.
I would like to present you my reason why i think , pedophile is a sexual orientation similar to other orientation :
1.Relationship between adult and a child does not always result in long lasting emotional and physical harm to children,therefore it should not always be viewed as abusive.Sometimes it can be positive to children in response to child sexual experience with an adult
2.Pedophile and homosexual are identically similar in characteristic but not equally the same.
The reason behind why American psychiatric association has declassified homosexual as mental disorder although there were no scientific empirical support for such claim but rather because of political influence and the pressure aside from the homosexual agenda favoring to accept homosexual in the society.Homosexual is a mental disorder. Research has examining the brain to conduct a search whether there are any abnormalities found .Research report that there are frontal lobe injury particularly the orbitofrontal region of the limb system associate with homosexual brain.As well as there is a link between temporal lobe abnormalities and pedophilia.From this scientific evidence both homo and pedos are mental ill individual.
3.Pedophile is sometimes describe as a sexual orientation by research who claim it has a similar age of onset,correlation with sexual and romantic behavior and stability over time as homosexual.

I wasn't listening to anything you just said. Half I didn't read and half I didn't understand.

Also other reason why i think pedophile are similar to homosexual due to the fact that majority of pedos 87 % of them are either bi sexual or homosexual therefore homosexual are more likely than heterosexual to molested children and prey on multiple victim in their lifetime.

I'd be glad to debate as Con on this topic. I've seen some incorrect information in Pro's argument, and can probably create a rebuttal against it.

In the future DSM should eliminate pedophile from the mental disorder list.

But i agree with you in some certain point that age of consent should be lowered.I see nothing wrong having sex with little girls.
