The definition of pedophilia involves prepubescent children only. That is part of why its so sick.

A grown man of whatever age being attracted to a post-pubescent young person is not, by definition, a pedophile.

To some, they are, by definition, perverts.

I'll pull a Scalia on you - no dictionary definition I am aware of makes such a qualification. Merriam Webster's, American Heritage, etc, just say "child" or "children". That is defined as an individual below the age of majority. Theerfore, he is a pedophile.
