One of the odd and disturbing things about pedophiliacs/child molesters is that they are sexually attracted to something that I view as asexual. Prepubescent children. The thing is you can say that a gay man is sexually attracted to other men and a straight man is sexually attracted to women. You can even discuss bisexuality, but that still involves attraction to a partner. I think it's a mistake to lump pedophilia in with homosexuality. The closest thing that makes sense that I have seen is paraphilia, a sort of catch-all term mostly involving sexual attraction/sexual activity without an actual sex partner.
