I like kids
but I'm not a pedophile

I like intellect
but I'm not a sapiophile

@JohnJillky Honestly, idk

you don't know if you're a pedophile?

@fuzala you don't know if you're a pedophile?

Depends on ones definition of pedophile. Some base it by age. Some base it by puberty. There are people my age who haven't gone through puberty though I'm still attracted to them.

@fuzala to be a pedophile you would also have to be well above the age of "them"

Legally, yes. Definition-wise, not necessarily, as is my understanding. Either way it's fun to go up to people saying "I'm a pedophile!"

@fuzala even definition wise "an adult who is sexually attracted to young children...

Based on what different dictionaries say, I'm a pedophile and I'm not. I usually go with the least specific of the two definitions since the Latin basis of the word mentions nothing about adults.

it also says young children

people in your age group are not young children
they're old children

@fuzala it also says young children people in your age group are not young children they're old children

My definition is less specific there as well. "A person who is sexually attracted to children"

@JohnJillky My definition is less specific there as well. "A person who is sexually attracted to children"

let me reword that

teenagers are not children in these contexts
they are in the adolescent stage

you're looking at Ephebophilia
which is attraction towards ages around 15-19
and they can be a little under that age too

and again
this is defined as adults having this attraction

doesn't matter (reply to Latin basis)
words have certain contexts

to say you're a pedophile is extremely misleading in this day and context

@fuzala let me reword that teenagers are not children in these contexts they are in the adolescent stage you're looking...

My definition says a child is one who has not gone through puberty or is below the legal age. Ephebophilia is, in my opinion, a type of pedophilia.

@JohnJillky My definition says a child is one who has not gone through puberty or is below the legal age. Ephebophilia is, in...

words have multiple definitions

a parent would describe his/her 50 year old as "their child/children"

again
to use those terms for yourself is misleading

they would think you were an adult

@JohnJillky Some would some wouldn't.

if there was no indicator of your youth
the vast majority would think so

the most widely accepted definition of a pedophile is an adult sexually attracted to children

@JohnJillky Have you spoken with the billions of people in the world to confirm that?

obviously not

the term pedophile does not even register in some languages, cultures, etc.

it's pretty much non existent in some contexts

from watching news, Hollywood, etc
it's easy to gather that pedophile is a term for adults
and the vast majority have agreed

do you ever see someone refer to a child like this?:

"AWWW what a cute pedophile"

that sentence is not the norm

so don't even give me that

pedophile is used to refer to a adult predator most of the time

when it's not used for an adult
it's used jokingly

again
to call yourself a legit pedophile would be extremely misleading

words have straight forward denotations
but their connotations will give you the context and what people mean

you're so focused on denotation
that you're missing connotation

if you can't see that
I have nothing else to say

I don't how else to put it

@fuzala obviously not the term pedophile does not even register in some languages, cultures, etc. it's pretty much non...

Connotation is even more subjective that denotation. I know I'm focusing on denotation because I prefer denotation when referring to the meaning of words. In the end, no words meaning is its true meaning for no words have objective meanings. If you want to base it off of majority, that's fine. I don't.

@JohnJillky Connotation is even more subjective that denotation. I know I'm focusing on denotation because I prefer denotation...

and yeah
you kinda have to base it off the majority

because you're more likely to come into contact with the vast majority

so when you tell them you're pedo
they'll get the wrong idea

I'm not saying you can't have your own meaning
just be aware of the consequences

@JohnJillky I am and I embrace them. Mwahahaha!

you're not a friggin' pedo
get over it already

and some people really do struggle with this

meaning they are adults attracted to children
and everyday is a struggle fighting that attraction

it is a serious issue

and you do not suffer from this issue in the same way

you being attracted to your age group throws up no red flags

@JohnJillky Struggle is not part of the definition. This is irrelevant.

that's not the point

the point is you're putting yourself on the same level as these people
when you have no idea what it's like

a 5 year old can scream that he's a pedo all he wants
that doesn't mean he's a pedo

the dictionary says person
but it's not just any person
it's specifically an adult person

for you to be attracted to your own age group does not hold the same meaning as an adult attracted to children

it is not the same thing

@fuzala that's not the point the point is you're putting yourself on the same level as these people when you have no idea...

You're taking this way too seriously. I'm attracted to children. The definition I have is "a person attracted to children". I'm a pedobear :P legally and psychologically, no, I'm not a pedophile. But, those are specific fields. I just think its more fun to be less specific.

@JohnJillky You're taking this way too seriously. I'm attracted to children. The definition I have is "a person attracted to...

your are not a pedophile in any shape or form

if you're gonna use words in that way
I could say I'm a teacher on my resume
which would be misleading
(even though I have taught things, they will assume I have a teaching certificate)

to use terms in that way can be very deceptive

@fuzala your are not a pedophile in any shape or form if you're gonna use words in that way I could say I'm a teacher on...

A teacher is a person who teaches. Yet, you were not employed as a teacher. So there is no reason to put that on a resume.

@JohnJillky A teacher is a person who teaches. Yet, you were not employed as a teacher. So there is no reason to put that on a...

exactly
in that context
I would be misleading

and on your resume
you talk about your experiences
not just employment

also, in order to get your very first job
you would not have any employment on your resume

you would have other things to put on there
so one could be sly and put that in there

he/she would most likely get caught, though

like I said
you can say you're a pedo all you want

but prepare to be misunderstood
because many will think you're an adult
or a troll

depends on context

@fuzala exactly in that context I would be misleading and on your resume you talk about your experiences not just...

Again, that's based on connotation. In the outside world, you use connotation when you want people to understand you. I'm using denotation to have a little fun. Is that a crime?

@JohnJillky ... Anyway, I'm a pedo

Anyways
in the truest form
you are not a pedo

@fuzala Anyways in the truest form you are not a pedo

Truest is most objective. All we have that is closest to that are denotations...
I'm a pedo.

@fuzala not a pedo

I'm sexually attracted to children. I'm a pedo.

@JohnJillky I'm sexually attracted to children. I'm a pedo.

your peers are teens
not children

again
my 50 year old example

a 50 year old is considered a parent's child
but in the truest form, is not a child

@JohnJillky In either case, I'm a pedo.

no you're not

person refers to adults

you're attracted to people in your age group

@fuzala no you're not person refers to adults you're attracted to people in your age group

I'm attracted to people of many ages. If a child can indeed refer to any descendant of someone, then everyone's fair game for my pedophilia.

@JohnJillky Even you fuzala

that would imply everyone who is not asexual is a pedophile

have it your way
just don't say you're a pedo for a daycare position interview

I enjoy the company of intelligent people but I don't get aroused when I am with them.
