Is paedophilia a mental illness?
« on: Today at 06:28:10 »
National Public Radio carried this report two days ago, "Revelations Of British Paedophile Ring Spur Flood Of Abuse Reports"

Recently I learned how to access "the dark web". I was amazed to find several forums which were crawling with paedophiles seeking to hook up. (Uff da!)

So it raises the question in my mind, "Is Paedophilia a mental illness or a cultural phenomenon?"

The whole idea seems absotively bizarre to me.

PS: There appears to be no shortage of "funny uncles" here in America.
