During a TEDx Talk, Mirjam Heine from University of Würzburg claimed “pedophilia is a natural sexual orientation, just like heterosexuality.”

“According to current research, pedophilia is an unchangeable sexual orientation,” Heine argued. “Just like, for example, heterosexuality. No one chooses to be a pedophile. No one can cease being one.”

“The difference between pedophilia and other sexual orientations is that, living out this sexual orientation will end in a disaster… It is our responsibility to over come our negative feelings about pedophiles. And to treat them with the same respect we treat other people with.”

“We should accept that pedophiles are people who have not chosen their sexuality… We should accept that pedophilia is a sexual preference, a thought, a feeling, and not an act. We should differentiate between child sexual abuse and pedophilia. We shouldn’t increase the suffering of pedophiles by excluding them, by blaming and mocking them.”
