“So question: is Tiefer a hebephile in general or is it just Jehan? Like, would he get hot and bothered at the sight of a sexy teen boy in general, or does Jehan get special treatment for looking like his daddy?”

kmclaude:

Jehan’s special for looking like his daddy but I think Tiefer does have a preference for older teens and young adults–jailbait and college boys but I mean, that’s fairly normal for adults to be attracted to other sexually mature people, he’s not like…actively pursuing based on someone’s age (he’s just also not about to stop upon finding out someone’s say 16 or 17. So no, he’s not really.

Claude’s response to someone asking if one of his characters is a hebephile (pedophile with a preference for 11- to 14-year-olds) for being attracted to his underage godson.

If an adult is attracted to a minor, they are a pedophile period, even if they’re only focused on a particular person. They’re also a pedophile if they continue to sexually pursue someone after finding out they’re 16.

Also, claiming it’s okay for adults to be attracted to sexually mature people in the same sentence where you refer to older teens as ‘jailbait’ proves you think it’s okay for adults to pursue minors who’ve hit puberty, which makes you a pedophile and abuse apologist.
