The American Psychiatric Association changed their definition of pedophilia from a disorder to a sexual orientation. The only "news" I can find on it is from extremely conservative religious websites comparing it to homosexuality, but the APA does admit it and even WebMD is wording it as an orientation.
What do you mamas think about this? Do you think this change in the official terminology will put kids in danger? Is this a sign that pedophilia is being normalized? Do you have other concerns about it?
Edit: Reading this helped me to understand their motivation for the change. I don't know how to make it clicky. The third paragraph regarding paraphilias has useful information. http://www.psychiatry.org/practice/dsm/practice-relevant-changes-to-the-dsm-iv-tr

I think it's disgusting.  If anyone hurts any of my kids I will kill them.  Gives me the rage to think about it.  It's not a fucking orientation, it's a very disturbed mental illness or just plain evilness.

Well that is shitty. Now those sick fuckers have a loop hole to argue in court. 'It wasn't my fault, that's how I was born.'

I see a growing acceptance of the practice it's disgusting. But as with every thing else we have too "respect" their rights and permit groups like NAMBLA to exist who's sole purpose is to make it more andmore acceptable.

I already believe it and beastiality are sexual orientations.
I don't see how this will endanger children anymore than now though. It's still illegal and should remain that way. Children and animals are not capable of making adult decisions on sexual partners, children shouldn't be exposed to anything sexual period. They are victims of and when involved.
I don't feel like this changes anything.

It's not an orientation. Sex is something that happens between consenting adults. Animals and children can't consent. Should we consider necrophilia and acceptable orientation too?
Sexual orientation involves sex or asexuality. If someone cant consent it's not sex, its abuse.

Same here but I will say that I do not agree that it is an orientation. Its just a sick disorder.
