MAP / NOMAP are slang terms and acronyms that stand for Minor-Attracted Persons and Non-Offending Minor Attracted Persons. The term is an informal euphemism for the word "pedophile." The acronym first gained notable use on the micro-blogging site Tumblr. Tumblr blogs that were known for discussing MAPs before 2016 were often geared towards warning younger users against interacting with more marginal MAP accounts. Public knowledge and discussions about MAPs then began to grow on other social networking sites after 2017, with the term being used by various conservative activists in 2022.


Discussions about MAPs being pedophiles can be traced back to Tumblr communities before the year 2016. Several pro-MAP, anti-MAP and "reformed" MAP blogs created posts listing accounts in and against their respective groups. A December 2016 post[1] made by Tumblr user antimap-steeljaw documents various posts made by pro-MAP accounts in late 2016 (seen below).

If you're a MAP or a MAP supporter, you can't ask for sympathy, respect, or trust if you ignore or agree with @official-femmefish's actions. That goes for pyrefyre, zellfeit, mapliving, lifeasamap, honeyedmap, mappositivity, the-recovering-p---, toppestofcats, dorothemap, tiberiusponificus, mells-the-map, antianti-forever, anne-the-map, yournameis- deborah, apples-with-sauce, allships-are-goodships, for-pedophiles, date-a-map-who, trickster-god-raven, and bpd-prouvaire. You guys... the MAP community is not very large to begin with, and most of these are the well known MAPS and their supporters. I mean... what does that tell you about the MAP community?

I think such content is vile. But the research I have read all points to the fact that child p---------- does not encourage people to commit sexual offenses, though it does encourage the creation of such content and creates a demand in content depicting child abuse. I encourage the creation and consumption of simulated child p----------, and have high hopes in its ability to decrease rates of and prevent child sexual abuse. With our current and future technology, I believe we could create realistic simulated child p---------- and help people like me handle their desires without causing harm. Oh and here's my tag.

This statute offers an alternative 2- pronged test for obscenity with a lower threshold than the Miller test. The matter involving minors can be deemed obscene if it (i) depicts an image that is, or appears to be a minor engaged in graphic b---------, sadistic or masochistic abuse, or sexual intercourse and (ii) if the image lacks serious literary, artistic, political, or scientific value.

There has been recently a lot of posts, caused by some rather questionable images claiming that LGBT is adding a P for peadophiles, or the MAP stuff. This could not be further from the truth, This is a hoax being spread by 4chan, as you can see on the snopes page here[¹]. However, due to this hoax, we have been receiving multiple posts a day, either claiming we are, asking are we, or simply repeating our denial. To this effect we are putting up this sticky, and asking people do not keep posting such, further posts will be removed and referred to this sticky, thankyou. 216 comments source share save hide report crosspost hide all child comments

I'm refuse to use the "PC" term and call these fuckers what they are.
- Pedophiles (or the other -phile (can't remember what it was) when some pedantic goes "aksually")
- Child Abusers
- Child Predator
- Mentally Ill (only those who haven't offend yet)
- Dead (only those who already offend)

I will die on this hill, and If I see any child fuckers chasing any children. I'm not afraid of throwing punches.


Assuming everyone is on board with the whole "pedos are bad" idea there is at least a few things I think more people could take away from this discussion.

Pedos/MAPs would love to join the LGBT club.
The LGBT club largely rejects Pedos/MAPs.

If you try to lump LGBT people and Pedos together you are helping the pedos and are hurting your cause. If you try to downplay sexual content around children from supposedly LGBT members you are helping pedos and hurting your cause.
