Really well put. I agree reducing pedophilia to a simple "sexual preference" really neglects the harm and damage it does.

Pedophiles are people who fetishize innocence and are sexually excited by rape (which is what sex with a child entails). We call out the fetishization of minorities, trans people, etc - this is no different and far more disturbing. :/
