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

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.
