On May 5, 2018, a TEDx event entitled “Future of Societys” was held at the University of Würzburg in Germany and featured a lecture by medical student Mirjam Heine on the subject of “Why our perception of pedophilia has to change”.
Heine began her talk with the story of Jonas, a 19-year-old Munich law student who is sexually attracted to girls aged 6 to 12 years old. She goes on to describe pedophilia as an “unchangeable orientation” (the American Psychiatric Association classifies it as a disorder).
Here’s a description of the event on the TEDx website:
“One to two percent of the main male population is considered as pedophiles. This means worldwide more than 57 million people. Therefore, pedophilia is not an irrelevant phenomenon we can ignore. It is unrelated to class status and educational level. The medical student Mirjam Heine explains how an appropriate approach to the unchangeable sexual orientation pedophilia might look like.”
