No reliable method to determine pedophilia, study finds
Good news for sex deviants seeking jobs with TSA

Lest you think that TSA hiring agents can protect airline passengers from sexual groping by weeding out the deviant from the "normal," they cannot. There's no accurate way to know. My full report on a new study about diagnosing pedophilia, and how it relates to the viral TSA controversy, is online at Psychology Today.

The study is: "Pedophilia: An evaluation of diagnostic and risk prediction methods," by Robin J. Wilson, Jeffrey Abracen, Jan Looman, Janice Picheca, and Meaghan Ferguson, in Sexual Abuse: A Journal of Research & Treatment
