frogman89 saidThat's neither a fetish, preference nor orientation. It's a disorder.
Well, I'm not sure exactly to what you refer. If pedophilia, we say disordered particularly because children who are not consenting require protection. Saying disordered does seem to clarify that but how about with those who are oriented towards other specific ages, not those who require protection like the very young or aged, then could we think of them as being oriented in that way?
If referring to the chameleonizing, which in this instance was overboard and possibly some sort of disorder of not being comfortable with himself in his own skin, though otherwise the guy was a nice guy, that's actually something that affects pretty much everyone to some degree, not that crazy of course, but it's even called the chameleon effect, an unconscious mimicry which aids in building associations. Just like how if you lived in the south you might without thinking about it pick up a twang.
Ooops, I see you highlighted. okay, well, just skip that 2nd graph haha.
