The fact of the matter is with the internet today and everyone becoming paranoid about the smallest innocent things, all men are seen as pedophiles.
Like the previous post said, even taking pictures of your own son or daughter playing in the park these days will likely cause suspicion and in some cases, police.
That is the sad reality of life today.

Errrr no .... let me guess it was made by feminists 

Feminism and feminists are a good thing, but there are extremists in every group.

I tend to like slightly older women.  Younger women are always a bit stupid, Im in my early 30's but find women in their late 30's/early 40's quite nice right now - they are confident and in control of their lives.

I couldn't find a place to watch the movie, but I found a video on youtube which is an interview with the director of the movie and it raised some very interesting thoughts.

 

In it, I have learned that the average age that a girl is fully sexually mature is 16....the reason 18 is so often talked about is because we essentially live in a mans world, and the average age of sexual maturity for a man is 18.

 

Basically that means once a girl reaches the age of 16, her body will generally not change in any significant way aside from weight gain/loss and other things that are controllable, things that have little or nothing to do with puberty.

 

Beyond that, it said most men in the survey they did, find that without knowing the age of a female in a photo, they found most men find 16 year olds to be the most attractive on average.

 

To anyone who has looked at the cover of the movie and the poster for it, the girl on both is 14 years old.

 

Last thing, the average age of models throughout the world is 16, and models are generally dressed and accessorized to look as attractive as possible.

 

He also brings up a good point that realistically most men are not pedophiles, because the term pedophile refers to someone who is attracted to children (that is, a person who has not reached puberty), whereas someone attracted to a 16 year old does not fall into the definition of pedophile, but legally they use the term rather loosely (pretty much for anyone attracted to a person under the age of consent). So legally, most men are pedophiles, but by definition most men are not.

 

Definitely raised some interesting points to consider, and by pedophile in the name of the documentary, it refers to anything that falls into the legal usage (such as anyone under the age of consent), not the actual definition. What the title is asking is if all men are attracted to young women who have completed puberty, not whether or not all men are attracted to children.

Too bad the movement was co opted by the radical man haters decades ago and has been a joke since

Someone should make a new file format, the Portable Electronic Document as a rival to PDF. Then people at the office would be like "Hey, can you send me that .pedo file?"

I haven't seen the movie but even the slightest bit of research shows this doesn't appear to be some simple attack on men. It sounds more like a discussion about the general shift in society where all men are assumed to be potential pedophiles.

 

 

 

 

I would somewhat agree with that sentiment.  I've been questioned on several occasions just for taking pictures of my own daughter in the playground.  Despite the fact I was clearly taking shots of the child I brought there that in all of the shots it is only my kid in the frame!  None of the women doing the same thing were questioned about it I hasten to add.

 

 

That is so wrong. Glad I will never be a father.

Very polarising title for what appears to be a balanced piece of documentary work.  There has definitely been a shift in society and in the long run to everyones detriment I think, I know in Australia there a distinct decline, near deficit of male teachers.  Might seem like a minor thing but I suspect it will have ramifications.  Its also interesting some of the double standards that pop up regularly these days, eg the high 5's for the male student who sleeps with the hot female teacher but a lynching for the male teacher who sleeps with the hot female student etc.

A lot of men avoid careers in childcare, education or anything else where you would deal with kids regularly because it isn't seen as a career a man should do, (it's womens' work) and there is also a suspicion of any man who would want to work with children. It's unfair but it is the reality.

 

Plus they worry the hell out of us.

In a pro feminist crybaby era, sure all men are pedophiles. I'm not surprised Oprah Winfrey is involved.
