||Recently, we were shocked by a news that was very foreign to us. A British man has been convicted of molesting and sexually abusing children, including in Malaysia. The psychological disorder is called pedophilia, while the perpetrators of child sexual harassment are called pedophiles. A person who suffers from pedophilia, may also not be a pedophiles (for not committing any sexual behavior against children), but a pedophile turns out to be a person suffering from pedophilia.
