all the crap in the news about Gary Glitter has caused so much "chitchat" for people...some are saying pedophiles are ill, some saying there not to blame.. Isn't a pedophila a sexuality? the same as being bi-sexual, hetrosexual?...no1 goes around saying that they mentally ill, its there fault, MOST people accept they sexuality, so why is a pedophile any different, there not ill...they know what they doing, they sick in the head and they destroy lifes.. they make a choice to act on the sexual urges, they take away the rights of a child...so how can anybody say its an illness? its a choice...and they choose to act. I'm waiting to hear what's going to happen, my abuser a pedophile was arrested and is now out on bail..he has ruined 2 lifes and as each day unfolds its appearing that he's been abusing people for over 40 years, including he's daughter and grandaughters, there cousins and other children from where i live.. he's ruined lifes because of he's sexual urges.... so how people say that pedophiles aren't to blame, well if there not to blame then it must be ME, my little sister, and all the othe children he sexually abused, and raped. pedophiles have a choice.....act on the urge or get help so the thoughts don't become actions...children have that choice taken away.
