Not only unhealthy, but harmful to children, who are at risk of physical or psychological damage. Johnny Cash, your line of reasoning is naive and immature. The thoughts and fantasies of a child bear no resemblance to those of a sexually mature adult. The babysitter you had a crush on, was trusted by your parents and yourself as a stand-in carer. If she had shown a romantic interest in you, then she would have indeed been a paedophile. This statement: "A grown person who's in love with a child is not a pedophile" is dangerous nonsense.
