Can you help me?

Look, I know that compared to some other people who come to this site, my problem is quite trivial. But if anyone could please be so kind as to take the time and help me, I would appreciate it greatly.
I created a Minecraft account using a pseudonym that listed me as a 40-year-old woman. I did this to avoid people who may use my real name and age to prey on me (paedophiles)— I am under the age of majority where I live. My privacy, especially on the Internet, is very important to me.
But I recently discovered that it is in violation of their End User License Agreement to do that. Now I’ve a dilemma on my hands. I can do one of two things:
1) Do nothing about it. I keep the information listing me as a 40-year-old woman. This is what I’ve been doing since I created my account, and it’s worked for me so far. My account was locked once due to EULA concerns, but I verified that I was a real person by sending a confirmation code to a phone. I haven’t had any problems since, but I fear that it may someday crop up again.
2) Change my account information to my real information. This would prevent me from being banned due to EULA. However, I don’t want anybody to know that I am a minor. I simply wouldn’t feel safe doing this.
Both courses of action have their pros and cons. Please tell me what you think is the better choice and why. Or if you have another idea altogether, I’d love to hear it. This has been causing me a lot of stress lately.
