These people are sick.
Over the last few decades, slowly but surely, traditionally skewed sexual orientations have been getting a make-over. First, it was homosexuality of all sorts. Then transgenderism. Now, actual pedophilia – sexual attraction to children who have not passed through puberty – is attempting to rename itself. “Minor-Attracted Person” or MAP is working its way into the gay, lesbian, transgender, bisexual community.
Doesn’t really matter what they call themselves. These people are still sick, and they are still seeking to normalize a sexual attraction that is not natural.
According to Urban Dictionary, the blanket term MAP includes infantophiles (infants), pedophiles (pre-pubescent children), hebephiles (pubescent children), and ephebophiles (post-pubescent children). Some MAPs also refer to themselves as NOMAPs or “Non-Offending Minor Attracted Persons”….
The “MAP/NOMAP community” tries to pull at people’s heartstrings by claiming that pedophiles are misunderstood marginalized people, and that as long as their attraction to children is not acted upon — or in some cases when they get permission from the child — that they should not be villainized….
Many blogs exist on Tumblr showing support for MAPs, claiming that they should be a part of the LGBT community and attempting to create “safe spaces” for these “minor attracted persons”. The blog “Pedophiles about Pedophilia” also presents many sob stories of “marginalized” pedophiles in pretty pastel colors, claiming that they mean no harm and just want to be loved like everyone else as shown in such headlines as “Why Pedophilia And Pedophiles Are Not A Risk To Children”, “Growing Up A Pedophile” and “How I came out as an anti-contact pedophile to the woman I love”.
Call it whatever you want, sickos, but pedophilia is not natural, and real, live, adult women are SOL when a man (potential mate) is attracted (or thinks he is) to humans who cannot reproduce.
There is a great deal of justified speculation that this renaming/rebranding is part of an effort to normalize pedophilia. It remains the one crime that is unforgivable even to hardened criminals. Routinely pedophiles are put in isolation in prison for their protection from the other inmates.
Just changing the name of the mental condition is not going to change the reality that children are precious and off limits for sexual relief.
