"Problematic". Because when something is described as "problematic" all it really means is "I don't like it".

That's another perfectly good word ruined by abuse.

Pedophilia isn't a crime, and most people described as "convicted pedophiles" aren't even pedophiles.

By that I hope you mean that "pedophilia" is a disorder and "molestation" is the crime.

Because the children they're molesting are adolescent?

Or because they target children because the children are there and vulnerable, not because they have a preferential attraction to them.

Most pedophiles probably aren't child molesters and most child molesters probably aren't pedophiles. (And I have _immense_ sympathy for all the pedophiles who never act on their desires, because that is not a great hand to be dealt.)

I knew a person in exactly that situation. He knew he had the urges, but he never allowed himself to be in a situation where he would have the opportunity to act. He was married, but he and his wife agreed they would not have any children.

Yeah, good for him, and that's super rough.

At least it sounds like he wasn't exclusively attracted to children? Which is much rougher.
