RESILIENCE IN THE FACE OF STIGMA
The Lives of Non-Offending Minor-Attracted People
In this episode, our host Elliott sits down with Crystal, an expert in the field of minor attraction, to discuss the complex and often misunderstood topic of non-offending minor attracted people. While pedophilia is a topic that is often stigmatized and sensationalized in the media, it is important to recognize that not all individuals who experience minor attraction act on their desires.
During the conversation, we'll explore the reasons why some individuals choose not to offend, the challenges they face, and the importance of creating safe and non-judgmental spaces for them to seek support. We'll also discuss the need for better education for mental health professionals who may work with individuals who experience minor attraction, and the impact of stigma and fear on this population.
Through our discussion, we hope to shed light on the experiences of non-offending minor attracted people and encourage a more compassionate understanding of their reality. This episode will challenge listeners to consider the complexity of this topic and the importance of supporting those who are choosing to live a life free from offending behaviors.
