Normalising paedophilia

"Paedophilia is a `sexual orientation` like being straight or gay, according to a criminal psychologist."

"The idea that sexual attraction to children is an `orientation` is highly controversial as it suggests that offenders cannot change."

"But, writing on the Reddit networking website, the psychologist said it was possible to treat child sex abusers on `the understanding that the attraction may always remain`."

"The psychologist set up the `ask me anything` thread on Reddit. Their identity was not revealed but was verified by the website."

"Asked `can paedophiles actually change?, the expert wrote: `I believe Paedophilic Disorder is a sexual orientation with individuals that are attracted to child features. In other words, an individual with paedophilia has the same ingrained attraction that a heterosexual female may feel towards a male, or a homosexual feels towards their same gender. "

" `With that being said, it needs to be said that sexuality is more of a spectrum than a finite category. We know that heterosexuals may engage in homosexual behaviour, and deny they are bisexual or homosexual.` "

What about the natural tendency that most adults have to protect children: is that capacity deficient in paedophiles, maybe ?
