From my Intro to Human Sexuality class I took last year, here are some figures on it:
•3%-9% of males acknowledge sexual fantasies or sexual contact involving pre-pubescent children
•Assessed via self-report, sexual behavior history, viewing time, phallometry
•Are there women pedophiles?
•Study in 1980s estimated that 20% of all offences against boys and 5% against girls are by women
So on the whole, even if you account for the inaccuracies/errors of the statistics (like how many people wouldn't exactly openly admit "I'm a pedophile"), the prevalance is not an extreme percentage. I guess it all depends on what you consider "many" though.
I chose B. It is true that many/the majority of pedophiles are men, but it doesn't mean the majority of men are pedophiles. It's not a two way statement.0
