I was recently asked how I was able to accept myself as a minor-attracted person. It was only after I realized:

  • I didn’t choose this orientation. An unchosen orientation doesn’t make one evil.
  • I’m comfortable with my feelings. I know that I have no bad intentions and would never hurt anyone. Especially a little girl.
  • I know who I am and what I’m not. No one can take that away from me. I don’t need anyone’s permission to exist.

These are the keys to self-acceptance as a MAP.
