To be clear, it's sexual assault and not pedophilia itself that is the crime. Those who act on their pedophilia should be in prison for rehabilitation. Those who need to resist the urges should seek treatment.

Unless they have actually acted on their urges then they shouldn't go to jail. Saying pedophile doesn't mean child molester.

If they don't act on their urges, provide assistance. If they molest someone, lock them up.

My opinion is that it's just a form of sexuality, and some people are attracted to child features. Obviously we can't treat this like any other form of sexuality, though, as acting on it is very harmful to kids. But I think we need to show understanding and teach people not to act on their urges and not just send them to prison.

Prison and therapy if they molest. Just therapy if they just have the desires and are trying not to act on them.

Even castration won't cure pedophilia.
