Prostasia Foundation, the “nonprofit” that promotes it, defines ageplay as “a form of role-play in which at least one of the participants adopts the role or mindset of someone younger—a teenager, child, or even a baby.”
San Francisco-based nonprofit Prostasia Foundation’s blog post titled “Online ageplay safety tips” says:
“Although it may be tempting to launch into an online ageplay scene while the energy is hot, it’s important to begin the scene by having the ‘underage’ partner confirm their real age.”
By “confirming their real age,” presumably, the Foundation means the foolproof method of clicking a button that says “I am 18.”
Fascinatingly, Prostasia markets itself as a sex-positive “child protection organization”.
Their PR people made an “Our Values” graphic to let law enforcement know they are all about preventing child sex abuse.
The Foundation hosts a “MAP Support Club (MSC),” a “safe, chat-based peer-support network for teenagers and adults who self-identify as being attracted to younger minors.”
It’s safe! There’s definitely not any networking of child porn traffickers going down on the MAP Support Club! No sharing of explicit images there! It’s about support, and understanding. Because it’s liberal, and loving.
The whole goal is preventing child sexual abuse — not destigmatizing, normalizing, and mainstreaming it!
Here’s Prostasia founder/director Jeremy Malcolm, the man in charge of promoting greater acceptance of pedophilia and “ageplay”:
Above: Jeremy Malcolm is totally trustworthy around your children. Protecting them is job #1 for Malcolm — it says so in Prostasia’s “our values” pyramid.
Jeremy Malcolm wants potential Prostasia “volunteers” to know that the children’s safety advocacy Foundation is a safe space for open pedophiles.
Via a May 2020 Prostasia newsletter titled Rising to the challenge of prevention:
“Why do we welcome people who are sexually stigmatized* as allies in our mission of child sexual abuse prevention?…
The short answer is we don’t treat people as assets or liabilities, we treat them as human beings. We won’t dehumanize or scapegoat anyone for the sake of our boosting our popularity with donors.”
*”people who are sexually stigmatized” = outed pedophiles
Doubtless, the ultra-libs at Prostasia would mindlessly cheerlead social media censorship of “anti-vaxxers” or Russians or MAGA domestic terrorists or whatever other opponents of the Deep State.
But the institution will adamantly defend child porn on those same platforms.
A lot of art that's weird, gross, or unsettling gets posted to social media. If it you don't want to see it, the correct response is to block the hashtag it was posted with, or the person who posted it. Don't report it as abuse material, and don't harass or abuse people over it. pic.twitter.com/FXCi0a4I21

In August 2021, Prostasia onboarded Atlantic, the Washington Post, and NBC Think contributor Noah Berlatsky as communications director.
Here Noah is communicating how criticizing pedophile advocacy “nonprofits” like Prostasia is actually anti-semitic, and transphobic:
“pedophilia as an identity can be and often is conflated with and attached to the identity of other hated identities; Jewish people, Black people, LGBT people.”
pedophilia as an identity can be and often is conflated with and attached to the identity of other hated identities; Jewish people, Black people, LGBT people. thus the appeal for fascists.

The sweet cherry (no sexual pun intended) on top: Prostasia doesn’t have to pay taxes for its advocacy work “protecting children” by fighting for more child porn on the internet and rebranding pedophilia as a sexual kink, on equal moral footing with a cowboy/cowgirl fantasy.
It’s a 501(c)(3) nonprofit. As such, its $151,699.81 in 2021 income, a $100,000-increase from 2021, was totally tax-free.
Who said the tax code is broken? It’s working super well for lucratively-funded nonprofits mainlining pedophilia under the guise of “human rights” advocacy.
MSNBC-of-the-internet Young Turks’ Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian melted down recently on air over Joe Rogan’s calm explanation regarding the epidemic of pedophilic grooming among LGBTQ+++© activists.
Rogan cited and criticized the prolific child grooming videos that American millennial teachers routinely post to TikTok (which then get reposted to Libs of TikTok, here’s just one example. They appear daily).
As always, the Young Turks reframe Rogan’s criticism of LGBTQ+++© child grooming as “transphobia.” So defending children from sexual predators becomes some sort of culture war wedge issue.
But any honest assessment will show that child grooming, which was once a bridge too far, has gone mainstream in leftist and academic circles.
Publicly-subsidized New York professor Stephen Kershnar explains that adult-child sex is a normal evolutionary impulse — and, therefore, by implication, morally correct. He even absurdly cites the fact that bonobos apparently engage in such activities as further evidence of its moral correctness.

This guy is no fringe basement-dweller:
“Stephen Kershnar is a distinguished teaching professor in the philosophy department at the State University of New York at Fredonia and an attorney.”
Another professor at a major US university, Thaddeus Russell, concurred with Kershnar’s moral arguments. But he took it a step further — not merely arguing that it’s morally innocuous, but openly defending “adult-child sex” in classrooms.

Like Kershnar, Thaddeus Russell is a mainstream academic and writer:
“[Thaddeus Russell] teaches history and cultural studies at Occidental College and has taught at Columbia University, Barnard College, Eugene Lang College, and the New School for Social Research.”
These are not one-offs; one could literally fill volumes with examples of public school educators from the pre-k to university level engaged in destigmatizing and normalizing pedophilia.
Decency compels us to re-stigmatize them.
