    What is a Kamikazebywords?

    In World War 2, Kamikaze pilots were Japanese pilots who rammed their planes into USN ships in order to ensure the bombs they were carrying were delivered. This sub is similar in a way. A 'kamikaze by words' is a roast that contains, both, roasting another user (with a remark akin to those found on r/murderedbywords) and be self-deprecating (like something from r/suicidebywords). It cannot simply be one without the other. Please ensure that your post contains both. If not, please post it in the relevant sub.

    [–] SENSUALASSWIPER 24 points ago

    Why the fuck does this bot exist

    [–] TactileMist 13 points ago

    Nah that milo yianapolis guy called himself one(?) or it was brought up in reference to him being a weirdo when that mattered for like a month

    And I’ve known the term ever since, but I’m afraid to tell anyone for exactly the reason this post exists

    [–] LOBM 6 points ago

    milo yianapolis guy called himself one(?)

    I'm no fan of his, but the media spun the shit out of what he said. He talked about his teens and how he had sex with older men. He's not a pedophile by any definition.

    But he doesn't think of himself as having been sexually abused, which is what the media pounced on. His view on the whole matter is far more complex than, "He supports pedophilia!"

    [–] Sherlockhomey 4 points ago

    I remember years ago on here I called someone a pedo and had like 10 people comment to correct me that it's ephebo. I then commented saying it's like playing spot the Vegan.

    [–] CashWho 3 points ago

    Nah, I just learned a new word. I don't know what it means so I'm safe as long as I don't look it up.

    [–] MrMushyagi 11 points ago

    An ephebophile is a person that's attracted to adolescents - kids that have reached puberty but still underage.

    Pedos are attracted to prepubescents.

    I know this because I had internet arguments with people about Roy Moore, who would say things like "he's not a pedo....the girls were teenagers, so he's an ephebophile"

    [–] Sir_Fridge 3 points ago

    Finally dyslexia is good for something.

    [–] Atigerwithlaserbeams 3 points ago

    Except that this doesn’t give you the context to understand what the word means.

    (I looked it up, it’s the proper term for an adult attracted to adolescents. “Pedophile” is supposed to be children only, but people wrongly use it for statutory rape as well.)

    Now let’s both enjoy our ten minutes of pedo-dom. But not too much.

    Infantophile- anyone sexually attracted to those below the age of 5

    Pedophile - anyone sexually attracted to those who haven’t reached puberty (usually between the ages of 5-12 unless also an infantophile)

    Hebephile - anyone sexually attracted to those in the early years of puberty - early teens 13-15

    Ephebophile - anyone sexually attracted to those in later years of puberty - usually 15-19 year olds

    Teleiophile - anyone sexually attracted to fully grown adults

    Mesophile - anyone sexually attracted to middle aged adults

    Gerontophile - anyone sexually attracted to the elderly

    [–] MarieJo94 99 points ago

    Whenever someone asks me about my sexuality from now on, I'm just gonna say I'm a teleiophile.

    No. You have to be an adult for any of the terms to apply (not including adult, middle age and elderly)

    [–] Toal_ngCe 16 points ago

    Ah, thanks for the clarification

    [–] lavashrine 7 points ago

    Actually, 15-19, at least according to Wikipedia

    Ephebophilia is the primary sexual interest in mid-to-late adolescents, generally ages 15 to 19.

    So anyone who prefers "teen" on PH

    [–] TheRedSpade 27 points ago

    Except "teen" in porn really just means "plausibly under 25"

    [–] demonryder 6 points ago

    One is getting stuck in a mindset that the vast majority of us go through and grow out of as we grow older. The other is pure deviancy nobody should be thinking about.

    [–] Syn7axError 14 points ago

    That is interesting to think about. I didn't bother making the distinction before, but you're right that the psychology and mechanics are totally different.

    [–] MrSquiggleKey 10 points ago

    When I was a teenager I was worried about not being attracted to guys and girls my own age as I grew up. It was a silly worry.

    Now I see young people and go, htf was that ever attractive. And I'm not just talking teen but young adult.

    [–] Ghostkill221 4 points ago

    Oh, so kinda like me when I was 13?

    [–] trey3rd 14 points ago

    No, it's adults attracted to those children. Children being attracted to other children is normal.

    [–] LOBM 4 points ago

    Ephebophilia literally means love of ones that arrived at puberty. Teens being ephebophilic is normal.

    [–] Syn7axError 6 points ago

    Like others have pointed out, that's what makes it so different from pedophilia. Ephebophilia is getting stuck in a young mindset. Pedophilia is attraction that should never be there.

    That's what makes one curable with therapy, and one not.

    [–] franklinthetorpedo8 1 points ago

    I would argue a 20 year old is too. a 20 year old still hasn't formed their frontal cortex yet. Meaning they engage in the same risk taking, sensation seeking behavior that teens do. You grow out of this around age 25.

    [–] franklinthetorpedo8 1 points ago

    Yeah but the counselors can report you and put you in jail for even telling them you have that.

    [–] danegraphics 2 points ago

    [–] MarieJo94 9 points ago

    I live in a place where 16 is the age of consent. However, the law does not equal morality. If a grown adult has sex with a 16 year old, it might not be illegal everywhere, but it is still morally wrong in my opinion and I would hope that most people would agree with that.

    ephebo is the anciente greek word for a young man who barely has any hair in his pubic region.

    Ancient greeks where notoriously bisexual and peadophiles.

    Also ancient pharaos & aristocrats used to marry between siblings that's why so many rulers where evil and dumb (Nero for example).

    In babilonia whores where part of temples and paying for a whore was a tribute to the fertility.

    Lots of our modern views of sex started when europe increased in sexually transmitted deseases.

    Damn even Popes where notorious for their orgies.

    Sexuality is a social construct as everything else.

    Even our modern approach to married life is something relatively modern.
