This unbelievable declaration didn’t come in the form of a major announcement in a huge press release. It’s simply embedded in the new content of the latest edition of the organization’s Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders.
Before this year’s edited release, the manual listed pedophilia as a mental disorder. The same manual once listed homosexuality as a disorder too, but, no longer does.
This year, the APA bowed to pro-pedophilia lobbyists and made a distinction between an adult that is “sexually oriented” toward children and an adult that acts out on their “attraction.”
According to the University of Southern CA, the APA now defines a pedophile as an adult who has “an attraction to minors,” but does not “consummate” that attraction sexually.
However, someone with “pedophilic disorder” acts out their sexual desires toward a child in a sexually predatory manner.
