More information[change source]

The article should be edited to give more information about the life-destroying effects of paedophilia. For example, the victims of paedophilia are six times more likely to commit suicide and are eight times more likely to repeatedly attempt suicide throughout their lives. The victims of abuse in childhood are three times more likely to suffer from depression or to commit suicide with the victims of paedophila being the most affected with a 40% higher number of them suffering from depression than the victims of all the other types of abuse. This is important information and will give the reader a much greater understanding of the issue, including the damaging effects mentioned above.Link to Proof of Life-Destroying Effects of Child Pornography

(Preferred) Terminology[change source]

i have heard in lectures and read in some texts (mostly non-english) that people battling this issue would prefer a term like "documentation of child sexual abuse" (or similar), can anyone confirm/correct this and if so i think it could be significant enough to mention in the article.. any thoughts? --Vike2000 (talk) 08:25, 15 August 2009 (UTC)

Hello, I am neither a lawyer, nor a shrink; but given the nature of the subject we should stick to "official" terminology as much as possible. For what I know, a "child" applies to anyone not fully adult. This is totally different from the age of consent which is usually lower. As to being adult, this age varies, too...--Eptalon (talk) 09:08, 15 August 2009 (UTC)

"Child" in CP[change source]

i must say i oppose to the statements about »the word "child" in the phrase "child pornography"«

  • as for one im pretty sure the UN (in the ~convention~, u know, shouldnt have to ref that 1) defines child as anyone under the age of 18 (being age-specific(!))
  • secondly i have never heard anyone mentioning this (phrase "specificity") as relevant to research
  • as for the "common use" the fact-tag is well put and i think the general public (with differences; social and regional..?)'s view (and following that, their/our "terminology") is somewhat diverse and fuzzy but i guess would probably follow the legislative "age of consent" if not an even higher "legal age" (fully adult - driving, drinking, "fully" punishable for crime)
