A Johns Hopkins University center that was created for the purpose of preventing child sexual abuse hired Allyn Walker, the professor who considers himself “non-binary” and called for normalizing pedophilia. Walker said months ago that he believes society should not condemn those who are attracted to children.
The Moore Center for the Prevention of Child Sexual Abuse in Baltimore, Maryland, reported Thursday that Walker will join the center as a postdoctoral fellow and that his work will begin May 25. “Walker is a leader in the field of perpetration prevention research, which is essential for developing a comprehensive public health approach to addressing child sexual abuse and effective prevention programs,” a spokesperson for the center, whose name was not released, told Fox News.
Allyn Walker was placed on administrative leave, a type of temporary suspension, by Old Dominion University. The situation arose after, in an interview with Prostasia, Professor Walker discussed his book A Long Dark Shadow: People Attracted to Minors and Their Quest for Dignity.
In the publication, he makes use of the term MAP, which stands for Minor-Attracted Person. It is a recently known social movement, made up of people who seek to differentiate themselves from pedophiles.
“I use the term Minor-Attracted Person or MAP in the title and throughout the book for multiple reasons. First of all, because I think it’s important to use terminology for groups that members of that group want others to use for them. MAP advocacy groups like B4UAct have advocated for use of the term, and they’ve advocated for it primarily because it’s less stigmatizing than other terms like pedophile. A lot of people when they hear the term pedophile, they automatically assume that it means a sex offender. And that isn’t true. And it leads to a lot of misconceptions about attractions toward minors,” Walker said during the interview.
