01) “I’m Not like That, So Am I Gay?” The Use of Queer-Spectrum Identity Labels Among Minor-Attracted People

“ABSTRACT

Largely based on an erroneous belief that individuals who are preferentially attracted to minors are necessarily sex offenders, queer communities have distanced themselves from this population over the past several decades. There are now those who object to the use of labels such as “gay” and “queer” by minor-attracted people (MAPs), raising the question, “to whom do queer-spectrum identity labels belong?” I engage with this question using data from my research with 42 MAPs, exploring their uses of queer-spectrum identity labels and the conflicts they have encountered regarding their use of these terms. I then discuss the potential consequences of accepting the use of these labels by MAPs.

KEYWORDS: Queer identity, identity labels, pedophilia, minor-attracted people”

    Yes, the correct word is now same-gender-oriented. There is no longer any Global Gay Community, as that was destroyed by Bill Clinton in the early Ninties. Child Lovers should distance themselves from this new-fangled ‘Gay Community that wants to rewrite it’s own history by not educating about the fact that the Stonewall Riots (attributed to it’s birth) would not have occurred if it not been for the Boston Boise Committee; began by Boylovers.
