The difference between homosexuality and pedophilia is consent. An adult can decide to give consent, or not, knowing the consequences. A child can not. That's why we keep sharp knives away, and lock cupboards with dangerous cleaners. Children don't understand the dangers and risks, so adults have to protect them. Pedophiles should not be stigmatized if they seek help without hurting anyone, but harming a child (and sexually abusing a child would harm their development) is not and never should be, alright.
the stigma around pedophilia prevents a lot of people from getting help about this issue. that being said pedophiliacs should not be encouraged to pursue these desires. people should not judge these people on what their born with but how they act or deal with it.
