Will there someday be a pedophile rights group?

I've seen a fairly frequent amount of letters to the editor of our local paper about protecting children from pedophiles and heard in the news with increasing frequency about child sex offenders, so I was wondering..

Is there going to be a new fear-term dubbed pedophobia, in like manner that anti-gays are termed homophobics?
Any prediction that the concept of "hating" pedophiles will move from acceptable (currently) to unacceptable (later), just as homosexuality was illegal and socially detrimental to admit, in the not-so-recent past?
Do you anticipate there will someday be a rights advocacy group for pedophiles, re-educating us that pedophilia is a genetic condition and a legitimate lifestyle?
I am not attempting to imply that homosexuals are or aren't as "legitimate" as pedophiles, I am merely curious about the seeming current state of public perception about the two groups in comparison to current thinking on pedophiles in comparison to then-thinking on homosexuality - no disrespect intended in either direction.
