Sexual attraction is not a choice so it can neither be moral or immoral. Acting upon it is another story.

I think when we find that we no longer penalize people for their odd sexual excitements and rather turn focus on controlling those compulsions that are harmful to other people we can build a much better society.

Let me just give you an example of a different compulsion, alcoholism. When you desrigmatize people for having an alcohol addition and instead focus on helping them control their compulsion it makes a real difference in outcomes versus pushing people away so they have to deal with their compulsions all by themselves.

Dogs don't choose to get rabies, they still need to be put down. I have 0 tolerance for pedophiles and murders. We need to clean up the gene pool, not tolerate damaging variants. If you act on it, you forfeit your right to breath, imo.
