An acronym that stands for Minor Attracted Person. MAP is a blanket term used to describe all minor attractions.

There are different words for different age based attractions, called chronophilias. there are 4 chronophilias under the MAP umbrella. nepiophilia, pedophilia, hebephilia, and ephebophilia.

The term was created in 2007 by professionals in the organization B4U-ACT. It was created as a more accurate term for minor attracted people, since a pedophile is a person attracted to specifically prepubescent children, and not all minors are prepubescent.

MAP stands for Minor Attracted Person. This is an umbrella term that covers all the minor attractions. This includes Nepiophilia, Pedophilia, Hebephilia, and Ephebophilia. People often think MAP is a name to "sugar-coat" pedophiles, but that's not the case.

MAP stands for Masquerading Asshole Pedophile. It’s a new term pedophiles came up with to protect pedophiles from being identified as pedophiles. They claim it stands for Minor Attracted Person, but really it’s a sham of language. They use the word “minor” because it can evoke the image of a 17 year old when really they are talking about 4 year olds. They use the word “attracted” because it implies they might not act on it, but then they believe children can give consent (which would mean acting on it wouldn’t be immoral and thus they definitely WOULD act on it). Lastly, the biggest deception is using the word Person when they’re not really people, they’re pedophiles. It’s also not a coincidence it spells out MAP which is an innocuous, useful every day item when they are in fact the opposite of all those things (dangerous, useless, and a tiny disgusting subset of the population). It is a prime example of conflation, obfuscation, and Orwellian language .
Let’s round up all the MAPs and beat them in the genitals with rusty hammers.
