The woke cancel culture would have you cancel the word pedophile in favor of the phrase “minor-attracted person.” We’re not making this up. Make a note of it in your lexicon.
A member of the British charity Mermaids has resigned after it came out that he gave a presentation at an academic conference called B4U-ACT. This is an organization for mental health professionals who treat people who are sexually attracted to minors. The organization promotes the term MAP or minor-attracted person over the word pedophile in order to be value-neutral. Mermaids says that this research is “completely at odds with our values.”
This comes as Mermaids is now under investigation by the British Charity Commission for possible inappropriate advice given to minors.
