\”Many psychologists, many psychiatrists have demonstrated there exists no relationship between celibacy and paedophilia,\” Bertone told a Santiago news conference during a visit to Chile. \”But many others have demonstrated, and have told me recently, that there is a link between homosexuality and paedophilia. This is true, this is the problem,\” he said.
Attraction to children is not driven by not getting sex elsewhere, this is true. But then neither is an attraction to grown men indicative of an attraction to children either.
Unless you want to get all Greek about it (sorry!):
There were boys (paides), beardless youths (ephebes) and men (bearded by default).
And say that since all three would be same sex sex then they\’re all forms of homosexuality. You might even stretch it a touch further and argue that bearded men (ie, mature men) can be attracted to ephebes, in the same way that hetero mature men are attracted to teenage girls. But that\’s still a leap to paides.
