    Reason: Discussion of paraphilias and child sex abuse

    "You nasty pedo!"

    Hiyoko Saionji from Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair


    Pedophilia is the attraction to prepubescent children by adults and teenagers, excluding relationships or attractions between teenagers and 12-13 year olds.[1][2][3] Pedophilic disorder is a psychiatric disorder that occurs when clinically significant distress and/or criminal behavior is caused by pedophilia.[1][2][3] Some, but not all, perpetrators of child sex abuse are pedophiles, and most pedophiles don't commit child sex abuse.[4][3][1][2][5]

    This is not to be confused with similar attractions, such as:

    • Nepiophilia, the attraction by anyone to babies and toddlers.
    • Hebephilia, the attraction by adults to early pubescent children.
    • Ephebophilia, which is the attraction to late pubescent children by adults.
