Role: Editorial Lead: Social History and Critical Theory.
Teleiophile (i.e. not, myself, an MAP). I've come to be interested in MAP issues through scholarship, so I tend to produce pages about academics and historical figures related to MAPs. Some pages I've produced that I'm most proud of:
- I made pages for all but one of the "famous pedophiles" blog. Includes Andre Gide, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, Thomas Mann, Edgar Allan Poe, Lord Byron, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Samuel de Champlain, Novalis, Mark Twain, Will Durant, Horatio Alger, Giacomo Casanova, Mahatma Gandhi, the Prophet Muhammad, Srinivasa Ramanujan, Carleton Gajdusek, M. P. Shiel, T. H. White, Kentaro Miura and Hayao Miyazaki.
- Intergenerational Lesbianism is largely by me, including the summary of historian Amanda H. Littauer's 2020 article in our testimonials page. The detailed Feminism page is largely by me.
- A large fact-checker article on Erwin Schrodinger. Large articles on historical MAP figures Charlie Chaplin, John Ruskin, Eric Gill and Ernest Dowson. Vladimir Nabokov, and books like Nancy Friday's truly sex-positive My Secret Garden, and the 1st anthology of American homosexual literature Men and Boys: An Anthology (1924), as well as its author Edward Mark Slocum. The most detailed article anywhere on Roger Moody, a left-wing MAP figure who was the 1st British person to openly declare himself a "paedophile" in print.
- Academics: Ken Plummer, John P. De Cecco, David Sonenschein, Ernest Borneman, John Money, Richard Green, Donald West, Gilbert Herdt, Gert Hekma, Preben Hertoft, Rachel Hope Cleves, Leonardo Arce Vidal.
- The most detailed article anywhere on the the life and thought of the once influential anarchist German MAP activist Peter Schult. This involved translating the 1 German academic biography about him, summarized in Beispiel Peter Schult. Created pages for the anarchists Sebastien Faure and Wolfi Landstreicher.
- French figures, including perhaps the 1st queer theorist Guy Hocquenghem; writers Pierre Louys, Jacques d'Adelsward-Fersen, Jean-Claude Féray, Roger Peyrefitte, Tony Duvert, and Gabriel Matzneff; film director and writer Alain Robbe-Grillet.
- Japanese figures (mostly manga artists): Kentaro Miura, Nobuhiro Watsuki, Mitsutoshi Shimabukuro, Kenya Suzuki, Tatsuya Matsuki, Hidekazu Tanaka.
- Indian figures: Anandi Gopal Joshi, Rani Laxmibai, B. R. Ambedkar, Chakravarti Rajagopalachari, Mahadev Govind Ranade.
