Pedophiles have begun publicly rebranding themselves as "MAP" (Minor Attracted Persons) and embarking on their march toward "acceptance" in earnest. Called this when The Brother and I did our KCRW's The Last Thing You Would Expect project in November of 2013, which was inspired by this post from August of 2011.
As I stated in the earlier post (and my opinion hasn't changed):
I don't even have children and I still feel a natural, instinctive desire to want to protect them from anyone who would do them harm, especially from pedophiles and the idiots who defend their action and inclinations. Here's an idea - stop coddling criminals and start sympathizing with people who really need and deserve it: Their victims. And think of the children for a change.
Given how many child porn arrests and convictions I've been seeing in the media recently, I'm really curious what is emboldening them to make this push now. And they're doing it by attaching themselves to the LBGT community. Gotta wonder how that community will respond.
Updated 7/14/18: Because oops, I forgot to include a link to the original story that prompted this post. Just moved last weekend and it didn't go well, so I'm a little scattered right now. Will do better next time!
