01) About MAP’s and Misconceptions of the MAP movement. #NOMAP #AntiContact


I dislike giving a lot of personal commentary in the M.A. TV posting series, especially when it’s strongly at odds with the content creator being featured…but I have a hard time allowing various things to pass, without response…and this is one of those times.

Consider this constructive feedback.

“Pro Contact”:

There are trolls out there, yes…but, “Pro Contact” is not a position which exists due to trolls “trying to make the MAP community look bad”.

The new thing on the scene…is the aggressive, public “Anti Contact” MAP campaign…

However…what can be recognized as a public “Pro Contact” stance, has existed for decades…and legitimately so.

Trolls did not make this up…Though I would acknowledge, trolls have behaved in such a manner, as to make “Pro Contact” seem like it’s coming from insane people.

“Misconceptions”:

Just because some of us MAPs disagree with some views being promoted by “Anti Contact” MAPs, does not mean that it is we who have the misconceptions.

“Therapy Support”:

[Very hard cringe, here]…The “alcoholic and drug addict in recovery” talking point?…

Minor Attraction is absolutely not alcoholism, or drug addiction.

Minor Attraction is part of our biological evolution, as a species.

Minor Attraction has survived the test of time, despite all it has had to endure.

There is nothing inherently immoral or destructive about Minor Attraction.

Minor Attraction can manifest in very positive ways, and has done so throughout history.

There is neither chance, nor need, for “recovery” from Minor Attraction.

“Managing” Minor Attraction, in a healthy world, would be little different from “managing” any other sexual orientation.

Minor Attraction is perfectly natural, and far more common than most will admit.

The alcoholism and drug addiction “step” programs are designed for people, who develop unnatural dependencies on [often unnatural] substances…They’re also a form of mind control, and social manipulation…sometimes used on people, who don’t actually need any intervention…In addition…employed this way, they badly continue to stigmatize and damage both the state of Minor Attraction, and the people who are Minor Attracted…They just do it in a particular way…but they still set us MAPs up as allegedly needing handlers…as if we are animals which need to be kept on a leash…It’s dehumanizing.

Alcoholics and drug addicts generally made a decision somewhere in life to go down this path, knowing where it could lead them…Minor Attracted People have merely been “guilty” of being born, and existing in a world which largely thinks it has no use for us…These groups are worlds apart, in difference…and in needed common sense approach.

Being Minor Attracted does not carry with it, the same damaging effects as alcoholism and drug addiction…Being afflicted by a hostile culture as a Minor Attracted Person, however, does carry a deep psychological impact and effect…

…We need to focus on the root problem…not treat MAPs as if the problem originates from them.

      Sadly…this has consistently also been my experience.

      We’re facing something really kind of scary, and crazy, with this new generation of “anti contact” MAPs…

      As the old guard is aging and dying off…and as not only these kinds of relationships and activities cease more and more, but also the information is shared less and less…we’re finding these organizations swooping in, and offering these young MAPs a sort of code and ideology, which looks to be causing some sort of backlash against MAPs, who are fighting for something concrete and tangible…who are fighting for honesty, frankly.

      The majority of these young MAPs, are parroting the status quo, social talking points…most of which have been debunked, long ago.

      This isn’t just a few steps backwards…It’s a fall down the side of a mountain.

    Seems to me that “anti contact” philosophy is just another club used to hit men over the head with. Third-wave feminist dogma condemns anything that threatens what they perceive they own … in this case children. To diminish this threat, keep men – the enemy – as far away from kids as possible.

    I look forward to the day when society wakes up and realises the immense harm done to itself from having marginalised men and children in this way. To compensate, I suggest affirmative action be instated to prosecute instances of discrimination of men and their sexuality, and instances of suppression of a man’s right to communicate with children in any way both the man and the child might wish. To make this more effective, apply retrospectively. Perhaps only then shall we begin to create a more humane and caring civilisation.
