Britain's most notorious child-sex offenders are using mainstream websites such as YouTube, Twitter and Instagram to rebrand paedophilia as a harmless sexual preference, an investigation for The Mail on Sunday has found. Hundreds of disturbing accounts are being set up every day which refer to both potential and prolific abusers as 'MAPs' - Minor-Attracted Persons - to escape the ‘stigma’ attached to the word paedophile. [...]

Otep Shamaya, a gay rights campaigner, said: 'They are a fiendish group of sub-humans and they will find no haven in the LGBTQ community. We utterly rebuke their delusional and evil claims.' [...]

It [PIE] was disbanded in 1984, but The Mail on Sunday has learned that its former chairman, Tom O'Carroll, Britain's most notorious paedophile campaigner, continues to use online forums to argue for the legalisation of paedophilia. [...]

Controversially, Dr Harper maintains that 'paedophilia and child abuse are not the same thing' and 'paedophilia is a sexual attraction pattern that shares common features with other sexual orientations'. He declined to comment when contacted by this newspaper. [...]

After being alerted by this newspaper, YouTube removed some postings and has increased protection for young viewers. Wordpress said it had suspended all three blogs linked to O'Carroll.
