between people their age

How is that pedophilia tho? 2 people the same age having sex has nothing to do with this.

paedophilia (isn't) always damaging. Which is true

I don't want to look up this up (since I'd end up in the corner of the Internet with a bunch of pedos), but I think it'd be fair and logical to think that there are or have been at least a small handful of cases where it wasn't damaging.

If it's not damaging for a 16 year-old to have sex with a 16 year-old, it doesn't make sense that one of them being 19 would make it much more damaging invariably (even though it is significantly more likely that it would be).

I was talking about the bit about “sexualizing minors”, not just about the paedophilia.

That isn't pedophilia.

Legally, it is, in many places. If we're not going by the legal age, I don't know what line we're going by.

The age of consent (in the US) doesn't = pedophilia. Both these things have specific definitions. A 19 year old with a 16 year old isn't pedophilia just because it violates the US's age of consent. They specifically were defending 'voluntary pedophilia'; a perverse concept, and nothing they said indicated they were talking about teenagers having sex with each other.
