Round 1 is for acceptance.

Pedophilic refers to the psychological disorder, not to the action.
AOP

Con

A: The world would be a better place if everyone was pedophilic.
B: Pedophilic refers to the psychological disorder (not the other type of "molesting kids.")

3: Cuz that's different.

So if everyone wanted to have sex with kids, the world would be a better place....

I just want to point out again, that I am AGAINST this argument.

We currently live in a world where pedophilia is a taboo subject and pedophiles are one of the only people who need to fear opening up to a therapist or psychiatrist. They have no-one to turn to other than other repressed pedophiles. Sometimes they find extremely outlandish websites such as 4Chan or the likes of it to express their urges and finally find some solace but the crowds and peer pressure on these sites are volatile and everything about them is set to provoke the norm or encourage rape and other activities linked to it.

If everyone was pedophilic, it is far more likely that opening up to a therapist with pedophilic fantasies and admitting to going to extreme lengths to get hold of child pornography would not be something a person would be terrified of doing to a therapist. In fact, children would likely be raised knowing they'd inevitably come to be attracted to other children. Coping mechanisms and openness about sick urges would become commonplace.

Just like gays were once considered mentally ill, pedophiles are too as are those into bestiality. Homosexuals had a lucky break as religion broke down in society and the fact that homosexuality has the capacity for both partners to legally consent to it. The pressure on pedophiles to not open up is immense. If one is forced to keep a secret all to themselves.

If everyone was pedophilic, there'd be no secret about it. Sick fantasies would become a normal topic of conversation and therapy sessions would no longer be held with the feeling of being help at gunpoint in that the may find reason to break their code of confidentiality at any given moment. While society would benefit, it benefits the individual immensely to not keep secrets that major to oneself.[1][2]

If everyone was pedophilic then everyone would be on guard to protect their children against pedophiles. The only reason pedophiles succeed is because many parents trust in adults not to be pedophilic and don't bother to get their child to out abuse the moment it occurs. If children were raised to be on guard and talk openly about sexual abuse and how wrong it is from an early age, the world would be a better place.

Another reason that pedophiles are so efficient is because other pedophilic adults are not very competitive. Since the competition pool of pedophiles to get the most vulnerable child is very small, the quality of cunning and wits required to function as an active pedophile in society is relatively low. If there were multiple people competing to abuse the same child at once, this would make pedophiles better at what they do but most importantly would ensure only the toughest, bravest kids survive to pass on their genes. The mentally weak would either be too screwed up to function well and mate with many other humans before they die.[3][4] The victims would become more and more efficient each generation too until finally a generating of innately loudmouthed kids who scream and snitch on pedophiles the moment they abuse them would occur and the children will have out-evolved the active pedophiles and pedophilic people (which would be everyone) would learn to suppress their urges rather than indulge in them.

I conclude that the world would be a better place if everyone was pedophilic.
