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?

Is anal sex really considered deviant/kinky now?

No, not really. I just said kinky because for some people, anything considered to be that automatically means gay sex.

there's thousands of years of history behind anal sex.

it was birth control before there was birth control.

it's all God's plan, you see?

It all makes so much sense now.

I wonder if my next date will accept "God's Will" when my aim is a little off????

It's not surprising that someone born in 1971 (let alone earlier) might've had difficulty as an adolescent recognizing that s/he was being sexually exploited by an adult acquaintance. Nor is it surprising that other adult acquaintances of the time, who might've had some idea what was going on, would look the other way. Look how many peers defended Roman Polanski even decades later by blaming his victim. But as Sean said, until you've got people willing to go to the authorities with what they've personally witnessed or experienced, it's still all just rumor.

Isn't pedophilia kind of its own sexual orientation? I mean people who truly believe they are in love with kids and kids are in love with them and want to have a sexual relationship.

^ There are some psychiatrists who've argued that, on the grounds that the intense sexual attraction to (prepubescent) children which characterizes pedophilia does seem to be involuntary and irreversible. I don't gather that's a very common view, though--it's certainly not part of the clinical definition--nor is it clear to me whether these people are therefore also arguing that sexual orientation as conventionally understood has zero applicability to pedophilic individuals.
