The Next 15 Posts In This Series: What is coming down the pike, over the next few weeks…


Date: August 20, 2020

The next 15 posts in the Research Series are going to be kind of a mixed bag of stuff…

I’m doing some “house cleaning”, and I’m getting some links and quotes I’ve been setting on for the last few years published.

In my exercise to do such…I’ve fallen down the rabbit hole of following more, more, more and more “related links”…

…A lot of where I ended up at, are research studies…with their papers behind a pay wall…

As a side note…I’ve always considered it to be really, really unspeakably fucked up…that we have these monumentally important, social issues being studied…and their findings being published…this being content the public really should know about, I would think…and yet, you have someone with their hand outstretched, expecting you to pay them money…for the privilege of reading content that might bring more safety and balance to our world…maybe even prevent a child or two from being raped…possibly kidnapped or murdered…

…I guess some people have other priorities…

I just cannot believe these websites, who demand an insane amount of money…just so you can download and read a PDF file, concerning social issues like these…But, this is the upside down world we live in…

Regardless…I’m sharing all the links I gathered tonight…

…In part, because a lot of them employed the term “Minor Attracted Person”…and I want to share those, because you would not believe how many shit heads on Twitter [mostly just mouthy a-holes, flooding their way into MAP hashtags, and trying to drown out the MAPs who use those hashtags.] and YouTube, still think that this term [and it’s MAP acronym], is something “that just came about in the last year”…”started by teens on tumblr”…or that it was the invention of that Martin whatever his name is, 4chan troll behind CLover Gender and Heart Progress…

…They just cannot comprehend or accept the literal history behind the term “Minor Attracted Person”…which actually goes back over 20 years, and is now deeply rooted in the research field.

…So, I wanted to start collecting up these studies and their papers…and sharing them here.

I don’t claim all of these are going to be of the greatest use to us…I don’t claim they are going to all make us look good…This Research series is not a propaganda piece…It’s a collection of links to research studies, conducted by accredited institutions, by people who are looked upon as authorities in this field…the connecting theme being that they have something to do with human sexuality…usually, pedophilia, ephebophilia, child and youth sexuality.

A large portion of the next 15 posts in this series, are going to be links to research studies behind a pay wall…I apologize for that [though it’s hardly the first time I’ve done such]…many of them aren’t all that “meaty”, as far as gaining good quotes…Potentially, you can search other sources, and find a free copy.

I just wanted to explain what is coming down the pike, over the next few weeks…My apologies, if anyone feels this waters things down…I strongly prefer to offer links, where you can freely obtain a full copy of the research.

      Actually…and I need to go grab a thread I wrote on Twitter about this, to make a more permanent testimony of it…but “Minor Attracted Person” can be traced back to the late 1990’s.

      It was used by Micheal Melsheimer, Kevin Brown and Heather Peterson, three very old names/activists, in the online community.

      Micheal and Kevin would go on to start and be part of B4U-ACT.

      B4U-ACT played a large role in popularizing “Minor Attracted Person”, but there were other groups of us who also adopted the term at the same time…one being those of us at Newgon…another being Virtuous Pedophiles.

      The problem is, it seems impossible to locate any remaining, quotable sources that go back farther than 2007.

      But I can personally attest, that MAP existed and was in use, long before that.

        I still tend to think Michael was probably the very earliest to use the term…he had a very typical [aka primitive] website for the 90’s, on which he used the term, and went into detail discussing his struggles to get mental help, as a non-offending pedophile.

        I wish like hell I had a copy of that website…pretty sure it’s long gone, now…and was not around back then…I don’t remember the url, either…

        Heather had a personal E-Zine called Phillia…Kevin…I’m much less familiar with Kevin, and his history with this term, but I’ve seen a few people attest to his early usage of the term.
