is pedophilia a disease or a crime?
Most Helpful Guy
It's not a crime unless acted on; you can collect all the Old Navy ads you want. As far as a disease, it could be considered a psychological disorder. There doesn't seem to be much research on what causes it, perhaps because it is such a taboo subject.2

If they act on it, give them a long arse sentence, but death? No.
My opinion is the same for rape of any kind.
Repeated offense? Then yes, death.
Pedophilia is essentially a sexual orientation, just... a really shitty one. It can't be cured, it can be repressed. It's the people who allow theirselves to cause harm who should be punished.1
