Why I am not and never have been a Paedophile

Question - Aren't you a convicted Paedophile?

NO, I am not and never have been.

Q: But you were convicted of having sex with children.

NO, I was not. I was convicted of having sex with 14 and 15 year olds. The legal definition of a CHILD is "a person under 14" according to the Children and Young Persons Act 1933. Unless you believe we are all children (of our parents - or of God) in which case everyone is a "paedophile".

Q: But you had sex with boys under 16.

NO, I did not. My convictions were wrong. My appeal is still ongoing.

Q: But some of your partners were under the age of consent.

The age of consent for males at the time was 21. Yes, I had sex with both genders when my partners were under 21. It was illegal if they were male, legal if they were female. I found that absurd.
