    Interesting. So many philes in the world! For a long time the only phile type I knew of was Pedophile. Funny, all the other philes are positive, but loving children is considered sexual attraction and negative. Pedo(children) phile(love). Why isn’t PEDOPHILE a person who loves children? Why is it sexual attraction to children?
