For Journalists

Online Resources for and about Minor Attraction

This page is for journalists and people writing articles for the media.

We have two main caveats for journalists:

  1. Pedophile ≠ child molester. Do not conflate the two.

  2. Most researchers in the area of minor attraction study people who have offended. If you choose to use quotes from researchers, please ensure the quotes refer to the people you’re writing about.

We strongly recommend reading this article by a psychology lecturer:
