why is there no reference to that word here: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/merseyside/7051274.st?
if i had sexual activity with a 13 year old.
"Paedophilia is a preferential or exclusive sexual attraction by adults to prepubescent youths"
Whether or not 'sex' had taken place is totally irrelevant. The reason the woman isn't a paedophile is that the girl wasn't prepubesecent.
the woman is still a serious sex offender - but not a paedophile
and tell the rest to wax!
It's a highly ambiguous, constructed term which is ultimately very unhelpful. Whether or not this woman (or any other convicted child sexual abuser) is labelled a 'paedophile' is not important.
This is all rather a lot like 2 South Park episodes fused together:
Season 10 - Episode 10: 'Miss Teacher Bangs a Boy'
Season 11 - Episode 6: 'D Yikes!'
However, yes...she is a paedophile, surely.
SP just gets better and better.
"We better find him and give him his 'luckiest boy in America' medal"
Whatever happens, she's a convicted sex offender.
that's not what the definition is. physical attraction to underage adolescents has its own word...
now go and seduce your workie tomorrow.
thanks for your interest xxxx
most news stories involving paedophilia. Because the term paedophilia refers to the sexual preference - you can't be convicted for 'being a paedophile', you get convicted for 'sex offences against an underage person' or whatever. That's why Chris Langham's defence that he 'wasn't a paedophile' is irrelevant - that's not the crime he was accused of.
is not the same as the Sun.
