Dr Max Pemberton, one of the medical journalists for the Telegraph, has written a bizarre article link below Paedophilia is a treatable illness - Telegraph I've picked a small part of his summary - "Yet if we view this as a medical condition that needs our understanding and, yes, compassion, then encouraging sufferers to come forward and be treated means we will also be helping their potential victims. " I've refrained from putting this into the NAAFI Bar. However, I can't accept that someone's unhealthy - sexual - fixation on children requires any sort of 'understanding'. From a personal perspective, if I was to discover that my nephew or niece had been messed up in any way then compassion would be the last thing on my mind for the perpetrator. Feelings of personal disgust aside, is there really a large core of medicos who think this or is Dr Pemberton in a minority of one?
