New research says pedophiles [sic] are born that way
"Mental health [sic] experts in the Ozarks weigh in on new research that suggests pedophiles [sic] are born that way and cannot help their sexual attraction to children.
New research says pedophiles [sic] may be born with the urge to have sex with children, and it's already controversial. Wednesday, in a special report, we hear from people who believe it and those who don't.
Some of this new theory [sic] about pedophilia comes from studies on convicted sex offenders [oh dear]. It was done at the Criminal Center for Mental Health and Addiction in Toronto.
Here are just a few things they found: a large number [sic] of pedophiles [sic] are left-handed, at least an inch shorter than normal, about ten IQ points below average, and have less white matter in their brains. Some scientists say those are all biological so pedophilia [sic] likely is as well. Not everyone buys that though, even an actual sex offender.
This man-- we'll call him Pete-- was an eagle scout and a service member. He has a business degree and is finishing a second bachelor's in religious studies, but "it will be a cold day in Hell" is what he says a potential employer may as well have said when he applied for a job.
"On every application 'have you committed a felony, yes, what type of felony, sex offensive' and you're willing to discuss it with them in an interview but of course when they see that it never goes any further," Pete tells us.
He says that it doesn't matter that he's done a lot of good things in his life; all that maters is he's a sex offender."
"By definition Pete is not a pedophile. He's had one victim and says he is only aroused when thinking of that specific incident. Pedophiles [sic] have at least two victims in the same age range under 12, and new research suggests their attraction does have something to do with how they're wired physically."
"This new research that calls pedophilia biological, a true sexual
preference, says even those who haven't committed a crime are
pedophiles [sic]. That's between 1 and 5% of all men. [+MAP =?]"
