Please don't use that expression!

The word I most detest, and it's used all too frequently, is the word "paedophile", or it's misspelt equivalent, "pedophile". By derivation, paedophile means "a person who has a love of, or a fascination, with children". (From the Latin "paed" meaning child, and "phile", a person who has a love of, or a fascination with a subject, e.g. bibliophile, a lover of books, anglophile, francophile, etc.). The correct term for this specie of monster is "paederast".
