The holiday season is chaotic even under normal circumstances. When a pair of DPS special agents show up on the doorstep the Friday before Christmas, though, the seasonal stress gets elevated to an entirely new level.

On Friday the 21st of December, Janelle and I were r...

I’d like to thank everyone who responded to my last essay and offered their own thoughts and considerations on reasonable limits for MAPs. The general consensus from those comments was that restricting unsupervised time with children was the best course of action. As I...

It’s been a while since my last essay on my life as a minor-attracted person, or MAP. (If you don’t know what I’m talking about, please see my series titled “Beyond Pride” on my Facebook page, or at my website: wileyhaydon.com/blog.) I’ve spent the intervening time doi...

If you’ve been following my essays as I detail my journeys and struggles as a minor-attracted person (MAP), you’ve seen that there has been a surprising amount of support for me. I know there are a lot of people reading, though, who have trouble understanding why anyon...

In my previous essay I looked at the responses I’ve received at a couple of churches and my sadness at being asked to leave them. Though I’m hurt by these decisions I can see what prompts them. After all, bringing in minor-attracted people (MAPs) does raise some legiti...

As I prepared to come out publicly, I told more than a dozen of my closest friends and family of my plans. I wanted them to be prepared for any potential backlash. I also wanted to help them understand what would drive me to an admission that includes a real possibilit...

July 5, 2019

As I’ve discussed my attraction to minors this week, I’ve kept it focused on my own struggles and my growth through that journey. This post marks a shift in my emphasis as I move toward more external analysis. I had hoped to avoid these topics directly, but it has beco...
