This journal entry is the opinion of the author, and not an official position of MEDAL.

This piece was originally written on Oct 22, 2021, in reply to a MAP who was just coming to terms with their orientation.

A lot of MAPs were in denial about their orientation, and some were antis. Before I accepted myself, I thought all pedophiles were bad. I said all sorts of anti-pedophile stuff, almost as a form of overcompensation.

We all have our journey, and we all grow. We just have to acknowledge the mistakes of our past, and try to do better going forward. I don’t think anyone here will fault you for that.
