It often has negative psychological effects on the child. Homosexual acts are consensual acts between two adults who are mature and capable of making decisions about their sex life. Fine, not all adult homosexuals are as mature and capable as they could be, but neither are all heterosexuals.
You are making the argument about why one behavior should be illegal and why the other should not. However, you are not explaining why pedophilia is a disease that needs treatment and why general homosexuality is not a disease and does not need treatment.
Now you have made it clear that you do not think general homosexuality is abnormal. So you must agree that pedophilia is not abnormal behavior as well. I mean who is to say what is abnormal and what is not. I realize that a man that has sex with a 6 year old girl is not having sex that will lead to procreation. Don't lots of heterosexual couples have anal sex and oral sex, though? That doesn't lead to babies for them.
Accordingly, since homosexuals do not have a disease that needs urgent treatment, you must agree that pedophiles do not have a disease that needs urgent treatment.

I realize that people like you will never make the admission that homosexuality is normal and homosexuality is abnormal. Even thought I believe you know it deep down, you will never admit it. However, I can easily look around in my world and easily see what is normal and abnormal. And further, I will say it.
Men and women that want to have sex (regular, anal, oral, hand-genital, breast-genital) with each other, pair off with each other, marry and have children are normal.
Two men or two women that want to have sex with each other (anal, oral, hand-genital), pair off with each other, marry and adopt children are abnormal.
Additionally, let痴 use the politically correct figure that says that 10% of the population is homosexual. I do not think that is accurate, but I will use this number for the sake of argument. If 90% of the population engages in one sexual behavior and only 10% engage in the opposite sexual behavior, it is very easy to see which one is the normal behavior and which is the abnormal behavior.
Furthermore, I would think it rather strange if my English teacher came into my classroom one day and announced that he had regular anal sex with his wife.
