The Way Forward?

November 11th, 2010

What exactly is the best way forward for the minor attracted movement in a world whose hostility seems as unrelenting as ever? In any radical movement there is a division between the ‘purists’ and the ‘pragmatists’. The purists seek the retention of simple undiluted principles and resist compromises aimed at short-time gain. NAMBLA is an […]

Byron confronts a pedophile on BBC television

May 9th, 2008

On May 5, 2008, the BBC broadcast an edition of ‘Am I normal?’ on the subject of sex, presented by the media-friendly clinical psychologist Tanya Byron. It included an interview with a pedophile; an ‘out’ (but non-practising) girl-lover, who has been bravely campaigning for wider acceptance of child-love and for the abolition of age-of-consent laws […]

“Sex before eight, or else it’s too late.”

January 12th, 2008

The infamous slogan of the title is said to be the motto of the René Guyon Society. Here, I outline an argument (independent of Guyon’s doctrines) that demonstrates its – naturally theoretical – appropriateness in modern society. The argument needs a background context. It is essentially this: the existing social order is based upon exploitation […]

Isn’t it funny how Wikipedia will allow unpaid volunteers to spend hours constructing an article, only to let some bureaucratic administrator purge it because no one could link a source? David Thorstad, American political activist and author, has been a prominent member of the gay rights movement since the 1970s, and was a founding member […]

Edward Brongersma asserts that this ‘unhealthy situation is not a natural condition, but is peculiar only to the last two centuries’. It was only after […]

“Child” and “Sex”: Two false and conflicting constructs

September 4th, 2007

Child   Do “children” really have any grounding in nature? By a grounding in nature, I mean a correlate in human genetics. Well, of course they do. “Children” are less developed (or indeed better adapted to their life phase) and that’s why we call them children. But why do we use “child” as a category for ages zero […]

Pedophile Terminology, Identity and Revolution

August 16th, 2007

Roger Moody, the British libertarian journalist and boylover, charged with indecent assault in 1977 (and acquitted in 1979), penned the following words in 1980: “The child-lover is no revolutionary yet. Pedophiles are trying to be acceptable, but will soon discover that they are unacceptable to everyone. Out of that will come change. The acceptance of […]

Demonstrative post: The rights of children

July 23rd, 2007

In starting this blog, I’ve got to make absolutely clear what I intend it to be used for. This has been done in part, via private e.mails, but let’s now make a public demonstration of it. I will re-post one of my own pieces from my old website. It relates to the rights of children, […]
