Many a Thanks Frederica for your summary post herein.
"A better understanding of attraction to children will help provide evidence-based programs and develop theory. There is still much to be researched around attraction to children. For instance, what happens to sexual and romantic attraction to a child if a child grows older? How do general and personal preferences play a role in attraction to a child?"
My statement on my posts in VOA:
"We see them. We love them. We send them on their way. To become a woman. Let us make our goal that of love, care, and devotion; a true mentor."
This is indeed a door left open for further study.
"This study indicates that attraction to children is a complex sexual and romantic phenomenon, as we find with the complex construct of sexual orientation for gender."
