Adult Attracted Minor (or AAM) is a neologism referring to a legal minor who is sexually/romantically attracted to those who are legal adults. This may be a preferential or non-preferential attraction - however, the term is often conflated with all minors who seek sexual contact with adults. Attraction to sexually mature people is probably so common among pubescents, as to render the term meaningless, however large swathes of society still refuse to accept this. This is the most likely reason why AAM has almost immediately been ascribed a behavioral definition by most observers - as behavior cannot be denied.
Most minor attracted people profess an opposition to pursuing relationships with minors, regardless of whether they are in favor of easing age of consent laws. Behavioral data documenting the high frequency of attraction to minors in the general population and low frequency of pedophilia in the criminal population, all but confirms the existence of numerous non-offending MAPs and pedophiles in society.
AAM (as commonly used) is likely to have emerged out of the 2018-19 publicity surrounding the term "Minor Attracted People" and the MAP Flag. However, the first known use of the term was by Pedologues broadcaster Rookiee on his blog, Paiderastia, in May of 2006.
Who has an "AAM problem"?
Multiple moral "gatekeepers" of social media, including members of the LGBT community (where "loved boys" were sheltered in the 70s, 80s and even 90s) are known to police and report AAMs. They derogatorily refer to them as a "problem". One of the ironies of this policing action, is that many of the self-proclaimed AAMs are likely to be poseurs, members of Anonymous or organized criminals.
