I think Penn does not appreciate your forgetting to add the State.

Pedophilia is a huge problem in all walks of life... I don't see why it would be any different in Hollywood.

And pedophiles more often than not are from the straight community... so calling pedophiles gay is extremely offensive.

i've heard a similar rumour about him being a source behind a lot of celebrity blind items (where they say "which hollywood starlet who has been to rehab before might need to go back again" or something) it amuses me to picture him going through life scribbling dirt on people onto notebooks like a journal.

even if it isn't true about joel schumacher, i'm sure it's true of some in hollywood. there's pedophiles everywhere, it'd be ludicrous to assume there's none in hollywood just because they're famous or something.

the vast majority of abuse victims are females who have been victimized at the hands of an older male relative.

So here's something to make the thread a little bit of a nicer place to be in.

Corey Feldman on Howard Stern, 1992 - YouTube

Paedophilia in Hollywood is hardly surprising, and obviously horrible.

Any evidence for this?

Actually there's quite a bit out there, but with some discrepancies due to definition. Some will argue the difference between molestation and a true pedophile, but the overwhelming majority of offenders in both cases are heterosexual men. And the majority of victims are female, though the numbers vary quite a bit due to speculation that males are considered less likely to discuss it. And amongst those victims the majority are from a relative, mostly father or step-father.

I think we could agree that the majority of pedophiles are men. Then by statistics alone, we could extrapolate that the majority of those males would be heterosexual. Unless of course you believe that homosexuals are more prone to pedophilia which seems very archaic indeed
(Unless of course, our sample population has been taken from the catholic church. That will surely skew the data)

Oh, lord, The Sad Punk, why did you have to post that here? I saw that video on the Cracked website some time back and I'm still trying to get over the nightmares involving Howard Stern's appearance in it .

Regardless of statistics, I'm curious as to what could potentially cause homosexuals to be pedophiles more often than heterosexuals are, if statistics could be found to justify that.

Gay people are not more likely than straight people to be pedophiles

This UC Davis study - which argues against homosexuals being pedophiles - explains:

Quote:
Members of disliked minority groups are often stereotyped as representing a danger to the majority's most vulnerable members. For example, Jews in the Middle Ages were accused of murdering Christian babies in ritual sacrifices. Black men in the United States were often lynched after being falsely accused of raping White women.
Facts About Homosexuality and Child Molestation

As for what could possibly make a homosexual (or rather, a gay man - since I've rarely heard of a lesbian being accused of being a pedophile), some believe gays are so deviant in their sexual behavior (ie: anal sex, open relationships) why wouldn't they abuse children?

Seriously, there are plenty of straight people who have open relationships and have kinky sex yet no one accuses them of being pedophiles.

Anyone else finding it sad we're actually having a discussion about whether or not it's okay to continue to feed the "gay people are more likely to be pedophiles" stereotype?
