We have been made aware of the fact that Yesmap's (now disabled) Matrix server was entered under false pretenses by the hostile editor of a supposed "MAP" website some months ago. While some screenshots/logs have been shared (including those of members suffering from mental-health and legal problems), no personally identifying information has been leaked. We are currently compiling a dossier of malicious and criminal activity we believe the publishers of this website are responsible for, and will soon publish and promote it.

Anti-contact (or simply "anti-c") is a term used to describe a person - often an MAP or ally, as favoring the ongoing prohibition of minor-adult physical/sexual relations. This stands in opposition to pro-c (pro-consent/choice/contact) beliefs, although in reality they exist on a sliding scale, with many underpinning themes such as intrinsic harm.

There are a range of anti-c positions:

  • Consequentialist anti-c (c-anti-c [neologistic - suggestion]). In this instance, celibacy is called for in the present climate. Such an individual might maintain that they are not presently interested in Age of Consent reform, or consider it a topic of lesser importance. Supporters of very limited reforms might sometimes also self-describe as anti-contact.
  • Outright-anti-c (o-anti-c [neologistic - suggestion]). Holds that under no present or future circumstance, can any sexual contact between minors and adults be entertained. Usually, said person believes that such actions are ethically or morally wrong, in the absolute.
  • Anarchist anti-c. Surprisingly, some anti-c's are Anarchists. They tend to believe that punitive state norms should be addressed, and that communities are (under the right circumstances) capable of finding a peaceful way of resolving what they believe to be inappropriate relationships between minors and adults.

The 2016 research of Bailey and also Jahnke in 2019[1] would appear to suggest that anti-c beliefs are not related to lower levels of offending. This is most likely because some pro-c positions are relatively moderate and pro-celibacy, while overstated anti-c beliefs can arise as a result of poor self-control and moral guilt.[2] Research might later be conducted to determine whether outright pro-c and outright anti-c beliefs are correlated with high frequency of adult-minor sexual contacts, whilst more moderate pro and anti-c positions are related to non-offending.

Ideology

Anti-contact NOMAP ideology is defined in said article.

Naïvety

Anti-c activists are often accused of being naïve regarding online security, forgoing basic precautions such as preventing others from linking their profiles. While anti-c's haven't been the only ones to make basic errors, online vigilante information-gathering campaigns claim to have exposed the personal details of numerous prominent anti-c activists in 2022 alone.[3] In one instance, a newly recruited social media manager for Virped lost their seven-year old social media account after posting provocative messages concerning a pamphleting campaign. That same year, a person (allegedly a MAP) affiliated with Prostasia Foundation and various other websites involuntarily outed himself to "The Predator Alert" on Twitter.com, resulting in him losing his job at a preschool. Pro-c online activists who have a history of infiltrating Wikipedia as early as 2004/5 have simply used fake accounts bought with cryptocurrency to stir up media controversies, attracting millions of views without the attendant risks.

Explicitly anti-contact organizations

  • Virtuous Pedophiles (other organizations such as B4U-ACT are sometimes wrongly described as anti-c, despite not taking an official position).
  • Prostasia Foundation - Technically, this is a charity that provides services to MAPs and not a MAP organization.
  • Most SOL Reform organizations such as NARSOL are not seen as actual MAP organizations (since not all RSOs are MAPs and vice versa). SOL Reform Organizations typically focus on registry reform and fairer post-release restrictions.
