I'm unsure about all this. One the one hand, it seems just like a case for banning 'em, and maybe use of some people with loud metal sticks that go "bang" and make other people fall down. On the other hand, so long as these people aren't actually acting on any of their desires, or breaking the law, why don't they have the right in a democracy to form a political party to do this. It's a tough one, banning them is drawing a line in freedom, and is basicly saying "You can have freedom so long as we don't find what you want to do repulsive", and I'm generally someone who doesn't believe in limits on freedom of expression. Not banning them is possibly OK'ing something that is fairly clearly to pretty much everyone but them, immoral(or sick and twisted as I'm sure many people would prefer). Nexxo, can we get some psychological insight into the mind of a peadophile please? Can they be "cured"? Is the desire to have sex with children even a sickness, or just a sign of a massively distorted morality?
