>Feels bad being mentally ill.
You definitely aren't mentally ill <3
Society wants you to believe that, because modern society is too coward and morally on a too high horse to just gas the people they project their hatred (or redirected self-hate) on. They want to drive us into suicide instead, so they don't have to feel like Nazis despite actually being something even worse than that.
There are studies that show that up to over 80% of adult males are sexually attracted to lolis, in the 50s (when people made witch-hunts for gays but didn't care about pedos as much as today), up 21% of people interviewed admitted finding little girls attractive. (there were sources on such given in some recent pgt by another anon).
Also it should be clear that at least hebephilia should be natural because mating with a female that just hit puberty should ensure the longest time of having a fertile mate and should therefore lead to the most offspring which should make hebephilia the choice of evolution.
Also, I have once read about stone-age-societies which have not reached the size to call it "a people" but the biggest sub-group of that (don't know english term for that) in a book about anthropology were the males always chose females of even pre-pubescent age that could not have offspring yet, to not only ensure the longest possible child-baring-time of the female partner, but also that no one else could have yet made her pregnant, so the upper end of pedophilia should also be an evolutionary natural thing.
Also it was quite normal for people having pre-pubescent brides in the ancient past.
All those concubines of popes were pre-pubescent (mostly aged 14 which was usually still pre at the time) to not get them pregnant, because that would have caused them trouble.
Mary, the mother of Jesus did not have a period before being fucked by God, that is part of the purity thing, so she just hit puberty in the exact moment that happened so Josef took her as bride at a point of time when she was pre-pubescent which made Josef a pedo.
Also, kids used to hit puberty later in the past, if someone fucked a 14-y-o or even a 16-yo in the past which would be legal in many countries even today, those 14 or 16 yo of those times would have looked like an 8 or 10 yo looks today, so it should be expected that males find those attractive.
Unfortunately I don't have any infos of that kind to cheer up the nepios here, but I'm sure that even that is normal and not a mental illness.
also there are even evolutionary benefits of having gays (as uncles) in a group of people, and there were many historical cultures about BL-stuff, so that definitely is no mental illness either
