There's that wonderful movie called Leon which was criticized for being pedophilic, but i don't think it is. Leon just loves and protects Mathilda. Sometimes pure love can be confused with lust in people's mind.

i got in trouble in a class in college for saying that the book the little prince seemed hella pedophilic to me.  it's a very awesome story, and i get how the boy reflects the man, but.....i guess if you separate the boy and the man, it seems creepy.  i read it young and it struck me creepy then, and i guess i never got it out of my head.

I think people also don't realise there's several kinds of love, not all of which is sexual.

The big issue is that the English Language (and others as well) have one catch-all word to describe different types of love.

Love between friends.
Love between parents and offspring
Love between siblings
Amorous love
Love of career
Love of country (this one is debatable - the word "Patriot" gets used for this quite a bit in English)
Love of a group
Love of a mentor

These are just many different sorts of love off the top of my head. Language tends to focus by way of becoming more descriptive of that which it, as a society, finds important. Many Eskimo and Aleut tribes have as many as 12 different words to describe snow, depending upon moisture content, compact-ability, stickiness, hardness, etc. In English, we call all of it "snow".

If defining of love in exacting terms was a focus of the English-speaking world, my guess is we would have more words than just "love" to use as a descriptor.

Yes, except now your Love shall be known as Rhododendron. I expect you to now say, "I'm in Rhododendron with my fiancee."

I'm in love.  Are you going to tell me my love doesn't exist?

Ugh. Hil, I'm not talking about you or anyone here.  I'm talking about all those stupid brain washed people who only think that sex matters in this day in age. I never said your love doesn't exist or that love isn't real. Get it?

Not even remotely true.

Wow, bumping us up the relationship ladder a bit quick, there!  I'm in Rhododendron with my boyfriend still works though.  In fact, I rather like the ring to it.
After 13 years we are very much in chrysanthemum. I look back fondly on our rhododendron days.

this IS a pretty blanket statement, although i got your meaning.  easy to fall into traps like that without clarification, however.

Not going to argue with you. You said something I disagreed with and I disagreed with it. Maybe you shouldn't make blanket statements.

And people say aspies take things to literally.

Anyways, we're in a culture that is obsessed with sex, sex, and more sex. TV shows, movies and sometimes even books only focus on the act of sex, obtaining someone to have sex with or having as much sex as you can. It's a sad reality that many young people are being brain washed into thinking that love isn't important. All that matters to them is sex.
