What do you think of people that are hebephiles?

A hebephile is a person who is primarily attracted to adolescents, or children who have at least started puberty and have signs of adult sexual maturation, but are still young and developing both mentally and physically. Generally, this means young adolescents and pre-teens between 10 and 14 years old. What about people are like this but don’t act on the attraction? Is it still bad?

  • When secondary sexual characteristics are showing that would be considered as "normal". Bear in mind that thousands of years ago, ago the typical life expectancy was less than 40 years old. So the idea of being attracted to a female once she has secondary sexual characteristics at 12 or 13 is not abnormal at all. That's the way it was for almost everyone a couple of thousand years ago. The biblical Mary was 14 or 15 years old when Jesus was born.

  • You don't get to pick what you're attracted to, and demonizing people for something they have no control over just prevents them from coming out, even to the extent of getting help. Hell, it probably prevents psychologists from developing treatment programs, for fear of the stigma.

    The net result is more suffering, both for those who have the condition and for the unfortunates they prey upon.

  • Sounds like pedophelia to me.

    Don't fuck kids under 18 if you're over 18. Pretty easy rule to follow.

    If someone's over 18 and says they're attracted to 10-14 yos, they are a PEDOPHILE.

    • Agreed

    • Well, no- like the asker said, they're a hebephile. Pedophiles are attracted to prepubescents. And they didn't choose it any more than you and I chose to be attracted to adults; let's judge people based on their actions, not their desires.

  • I am unfamiliar with this term. Still, my opinion would be based on the age of the person. Obviously, the older they are, the more gross it is.

  • ... Still pedophilia.

  • Thoughts are free many people have thoughts of non-consensual sex they don't act on.

  • I mean you can’t help it if that’s what you like... people can’t really control who they are naturally attracted to. BUT if you act on it that’s a different story, and you can control if you act on it. (I wouldn’t suggest it 😬)

  • People who are seriously disturbed and need help.

  • i guess the human brain is wired to procreate. so if another human is fertile, that means they feel sexually attracted. social norms do not dictate how we feel. social norms dictate how we behave. so as long as a hebephile doesn't actually fuck (or tries to fuck) an underage girl, i don't see a problem. because i've never heard of a hebephile or even a pedophile that is "exclusively" attracted to minors and not at all to mature, "legal" women.

  • Those who have an inclination towards, but have never acted upon it, deserve help and compassion.

    Those who have acted upon it deserve the sword.

  • Wasn't aware there were levels to being a pedophile. I won't tolerate preying on children, it's sickening

    • Agreed it’s very sick. My friends brothers friend mentioned these a few days and we agreed there’s no justifying this…

  • All pedos should die

  • Pedo is before puberty usually 11 and under. Ephebo is adolescents usually 17 to 22.

  • I've seen adolescences that are having sex, with people, just to have sex. Knowing full well they're 14. Heck I know one on here, who acts very sexual, at that age

  • Fucking pedophiles.

  • It is good they do not act on it

  • Still deserve the rope

  • Lots of loli lovers lol!

    Really they are gross and deserve to die they can help themselves they choose not to like cerial killers!
