MAP Subjects Needed: Study on Belonging

The following study is being conducted by a Danish graduate student with whom B4U-ACT is collaborating. The study concerns a topic that is very relevant to the happiness and contentment of many if not most MAPs. MAPs who are interested in participating may click on the link given in the description below.

A Matter of Belonging

The purpose of this study is to collect data that provide knowledge about the lived experiences of belonging for minor-attracted persons (MAPs).

Due to prejudices and general stigma, many MAPs hide parts of their lives and do not share their thoughts and feelings related to their sexuality. The intention of this study is to create awareness on the subject of belonging, and how it influences MAPs’ well-being and self-acceptance.

I’m seeking participants who will share their thoughts and experiences of belonging. It could be the experience of belonging in a virtual world, offline, or maybe it’s your experiences of not belonging.

The study is divided into three sections to gain an understanding on how your put your life into words, and how you believe MAPs are viewed by society. This would help get a better understanding of how you choose to live as a MAP, and how you choose your relations to be.

If you would like to contribute to this research, simply fill out the online questionnaire here:

Please be assured that everything that you disclose in the questionnaire will be completely anonymous and will be handled with utmost respect and care.
