I noticed that 'Hebephilia' redirects to this article, and this article mentions that ephebophilia is "also called hebephilia," however the whole description is very boylove oriented. The only mention of it being used for attraction to adolescent girls is "... but may be applied to all adolescents." However, it then goes on to explain how boylove communities use the term to distinguish between attraction to "teenagers" from attraction to "younger, pre-pubescent boys."
I want to make this more gender balanced, so I would either fix up this article to be less boylove oriented, or dedicate this article to attraction to adolescent boys and 'Hebephilia' to attraction to adolescent girls. I personally would lean toward the latter since 'ephebos' refers to adolescent boys while 'hebe' refers to the goddess (female) of youth. What do other editors think about this? --Pantheadoros 03:33, 16 May 2009 (UTC)
- I corrected the homosexism. As far as I am aware, no one else actually distinguishes between hebephilia and ephebophilia on gender lines. Jillium 04:27, 16 May 2009 (UTC)
- Well, I know Visions of Alice has a board called 'Hebephilia', and my explanation as to why there would be a difference still stands. However, as long as it is balanced, it is better. Thank you. --Pantheadoros 04:33, 16 May 2009 (UTC)
Half an hour of work gone
I'm about to burn my laptop.
The subject that needs to be covered is the Hebephilia/DSM/Blanchard controversy:
