I submitted a clarification regarding the article on pedophilia hosted by this site through the contact us page. Nevertheless, I wanted to clear up several things for anyone interested. I apologize if this is not in the appropriate place.

First of all, pedophilia is properly defined as the sexual attraction to prepubescent children, or children who have not yet gone through puberty. It differs from hebephilia, the attraction to pubescent children, and ephebophilia, the attraction to post-pubescent children. It is not, as the article suggests, the act of sexually abusing a child, nor is it a psychiatric disorder. A feeling and behavior are two separate things, and someone CAN be a pedophile (have pedophilia) without acting on it.

Pedophilic disorder is the psychiatric disorder in which having pedophilia, the attraction, causes significant distress and social impairment, namely from the internalized stigma. It is separate from pedophilia, they attraction. It is possible to have pedophilia but not pedophilic disorder (DSM-5, page 697-699).

Both of these are also not the same as the sexual abuse of a child, which is a behavior. Those who sexually abuse children have low recidivism rates (contrary to the claims on this site):

If anyone needs help with their pedophilia, considering the above information, it can easily be found at Virtuous Pedophiles. I also have a great help guide on my website which covers a lot of territory.
