A Louisiana man was arrested in Baton Rouge for uploading four images of himself sexually abusing an animal. The accused was identified as Mostafa Rasheed, but officers said they are still trying to ascertain what animal was featured in the abuse material. Rasheed was arrested after a lengthy investigation by the Louisiana Bureau of Investigation Cyber Crime Unit and National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.The Louisiana Bureau of Investigation Cyber Crime Unit was notified through Cybertip reports in March that a Facebook user “uploaded a video believed to be child pornography.”

The video was viewed and it depicted a juvenile between the ages of 5 and 10 being raped. An agent watched the clip and confirmed that it featured the sexual abuse of a child, according to WBRZ. A month later, the Louisiana Bureau of Investigation’s Cyber Crime Unit requested a search warrant to further investigate the IP address belonging to Rasheed’s computer. This came through in August, and agents discovered four videos of animals being sexually abused on the account. The search warrant return from Facebook included several notable things, including videos of children being raped, exposed, and four videos of animals also being sexually abused. Rasheed now faces three felony counts of pornography involving juveniles, along with four felony counts of sexual abuse of an animal. Currently, he is being held in jail, before his next court appearance.  

Pedophilia is a heinous crime, but there are those who have now sought to disguise their despicable cravings and believe they need to have  a class of their own. A few months ago, The Mail conducted an investigation that found several notorious child-sex offenders of Britain were using online platforms like YouTube, Instagram, and Twitter to rebrand themselves as ‘Minor-Attracted Persons’. Through these social media sites, they also attempt to re-categorize pedophilia as a harmless sexual preference. According to the findings of the investigation, every day hundreds of social accounts are being set referring to both potential and prolific abusers as “MAPs” - Minor-Attracted Persons. The rebranding is reportedly an attempt by them to detach themselves from the “stigma” attached to the word pedophile. Apart from this, the report claimed that anonymous users have also come up with their own terminology 'MAP Pride' flag', where some argued that it should be able to carve its own status alongside the LGBT community. 

Not just that, the anonymous users also crafted their slogan just like the LGBT community. Some of those slogans are, “#MAPPride” and “#Mappositivity”, reportedly seen as an aim to present pedophilia as part of society’s wider move towards sexual freedom. The unidentified users have posted memes online proclaiming “Gay MAPs are amazing” and cartoon characters saying, “Repost if you think maps should be able to date minors.” One such account was @SandMapMinorva, which has now been suspended. The message posted on that account read: “Minor-attraction is natural.”

The Mail also added that that for the profile image of these anonymous accounts, the users used cartoon avatars rather than photographs. Most of them have mentioned the ages of children they are attracted to and it goes to as low as “two to seven”. “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,” Otep Shamaya, a gay rights campaigner had said.
