18. Just like the pedophile priests
He continued his behavor despite knowing it was illegal. He continued his behavior after HE wrote the laws making it illegal to engage in this sort of online sexual activity. He has an obsession, the "philia" part of pedophile is clear. People are insisting the DSM-IV refers only to prepubescents, but that's not true. The psychiatric community has struggled with the definition for a variety of reasons, it has gone back and forth. Somebody who looks at a picture in a fashion magazine, without knowing the age of the model, is not a pedophile. Someone who stalks underage people for sexual gratification is a completely different animal.

Ever since I've been to DU, 'pedophile priest' has been brought up every time the Church or Pope is mentioned. NOW people want to change the definition because gays are going to have to fight a stigma?? Bullshit.

Foley is a pedophile and the Repub leadership covered it up.
