Do pedophiles deserve sympathy?

(CNN) -- One cannot choose to not be a pedophile, but one canchoose to not be a child molester.

Recently, however, a number of studies have starting changing that view. It appears that one can be born with a brain predisposed to experience sexual arousal in response to children.

Pedophilic men have significantly less white matter, which is the connective tissue that is responsible for communication between different regions in the brain. Pedophiles perform more poorly on various tests of brain function, tend to be shorter in height and are three times more likely to be left-handed or ambidextrous (characteristics that are observable before birth). Although nonbiological features may yet turn up to be relevant, it is difficult, if not impossible, to explain the research findings without there being a strong role of biology.

    Very good question Selena:) I believe the ones who do nothing about their sexual urges and try to live a normal life deserve sympathy. I mean it must be a disgusting way to live I can't imagine it

    Not sympathy, but they need psychological care to ensure that they never act out upon their desires.

    Pedophiles should just not talk about their feelings or act on them. They aren't exactly bad. But those who act on it and rape kids or something are bad and don't deserve pity.

    Kind of. It would suck. What we are sexually attracted to just happens. I don't really feel sympathy but more of an empathy. It would suck bad. What you like is reviled by society. They would love to kill you. Men especially cannot seem to control themselves when it comes to sex.

    as far as I'm concerned, these so called studies are a crock.
    Have a nice day !

    Actually sort of, kinda, I just thought of a song about a boy who gets molested and at the end of the song he molests a young boy himself. But that's a bit different to what the study is talking about, with people being pre-disposed. Interesting that some of the indicators are observable before birth. Maybe we should abort the left-handed babies* ;)

    *Note: I am clearly being facetious. Don't get your panties twisted.

    Not in a literal sense... unless they're getting sympathy from other creeps.

    I have to say I don't like the 'witch-hunt' mentality, though-- people loathe
    pedophiles more than serial killers or mass murderers. I think a lot of that
    is hype.

    Usually, those who proclaim their hatred the loudest have something to hide,
    themselves-- like the anti-gay activists who get caught doing exactly what they
    decry in others.
