And such women must be defined and vilified as “pedophiles” and “child molesters” precisely because they are not pedophiles and child molesters.A pedophile is a man (pubescent teenage males under age 18 as well as adult men age 18 and older, heterosexual or homosexual) with a sexual fixation on and obsession with prepubescent children, girls or boys. To quote wikipedia: “Pedophilia or paedophilia is a psychiatric disorder in which an adult or older adolescent experiences a primary or exclusive sexual attraction to prepubescent children, generally age 11 or younger.”
The imaginary “victims” of these women are not prepubescent children, boys or girls, “generally age 11 or younger.” They are pubescent teenage males ages 13-17. Ergo, the women are not “pedophiles.” End of story. Case closed. Nor are they “child molesters,” since their “victims” are not children, biologically as opposed to legally, but men, exactly the same as adults in respect to sexuality: compulsions, desires, fantasies, obsessions, fetishes, disorders, perversions, the penetration and impregnation of adult women and underage adolescent girls, “sexual harassment,” molestation, rape and gang-rape.
Moreover, I would argue that few if any women (including pubescent teenagers under statutory age) “experience a primary or exclusive sexual attraction to prepubescent children, generally age 11 or younger.” I would argue that few if any females, adults or adolescents, who have “sexual contact” with prepubertal children, boys or girls, are pedophiles, certainly not in the sense that males are pedophiles. In fact, it’s debatable if a woman can even be a pedophile under the APA definition.Ralph Underwager and Hollida Wakefield summarize this definition:
…The DSM-IV American Psychiatric Association (1994) defines pedophilia in terms of recurrent, intense sexually arousing fantasies, sexual urges, or behaviors involving sexual activity with a prepubescent child or children, and requires that the fantasies,urges, or behaviors cause clinically significant distress or impairment in social, occupational, or other important areas of functioning. It is therefore possible for an individual who meets these criteria to have never engaged in illegal sexual behaviors. At the same time, not all sex offenders against a minor (a prepubertal child, they should have written, M.K.) are pedophiles. All mental health professionals acting in an expert witness capacity should know this distinction.(“Special Problems With Sexual Abuse Cases,” in Coping with Psychiatric and Psychological Testimony. Los Angeles: Law and Psychology Press, 1995, p. 1336.)
But, increasingly “pedophilia” is now defined, falsely and absurdly, as “sex between adults and children,” including pubescent teenagers under age 18, and thus adults are defined and vilified as “pedophiles” for engaging in coitus or fellatio or “sexual contact” with biological men and women under age 18. But to define an “adult” who turned 18 a week ago as a “pedophile” for having sex with a “child” who will turn 18 and thus be an “adult” in 13 days is so perverse and ludicrous that even CSA victimologists, the ideologues and fanatics culpable for the bogus and malign usage of this aspersive and incendiary term, are constrained to offer exceptions and qualifications, themselves arbitrary and irrational. Thus, according to the “experts,” an adult must be 4-5 years older than a “child” to be branded as a “pedophile.”
So a 23-year-old woman teacher is vilified as a “pedophile” for having a love affair or tryst or engaging in a single act of “sexual contact” with a biological man of 15 or 16 who might be a true pedophile with an exclusive or primary attraction to prepubescent children.
