HUNGRY Third World families who lived by selling their blood to
commercial plasma com-panies are now being wiped out by Aids.

Doctors in Mexico who have watched the tragedy unfold in the ten years
since paid plasma donation was banned there warn in the Lancet today
that the practice may be making a major contribution to the spread of
HIV.

Infection with the Aids virus among donors through re-use of disposable
materials has been reported most recently in China, in 1995. Other
countries include Spain and India.

Dr Patricia Volkow, an infectious diseases specialist in Mexico City,
says that 357 Aids cases among paid donors were reported in Mexico last
year. She and her colleagues studied two families of paid donors who
had been infected and passed the disease on to their sexual partners.

They had undergone plasmapheresis - a process which involves returning
the donor's red cells so that he or she can donate more often - in
centres which did not follow the kind of safety procedures mandatory in
the UK.

In one family the father had encouraged his children to sell plasma for
money. Out of seven of them only one did not sell plasma and he is the
only one still HIV-negative. The others have died of Aids, and all but
two are known to have infected their spouses.

The 22 children they had among them are all healthy but have each lost
one parent and most face the early loss of the second.

In the other family the oldest daughter married a paid donor and came
herself to depend on plasma donation for financial survival. She then
introduced her brother and two sisters to the practice, and they
infected their spouses.

Three died without being informed of their infection status or
receiving any compensation, and the three survivors are HIV positive
and have Hepatitis B or C. Each couple had one healthy child.

Dr Volkow said: "Paid donors represent an important source of blood in
many developing countries and a source of plasma for the fractionation
industry in developed countries.

"The sale of plasma through commercial plasmapheresis facilities is
much more widespread than has been recognised."

Plasmapheresis is practised in Scotland, but - as with all aspects of
blood transfusion - under strict conditions to prevent the possibility
of contamination.

It is normally used on specialist donors whose blood has acquired
highly -prized antibodies with a variety of clinical uses; returning
the donors' red cells enables their life-saving plasma products to be
harvested more often.
Individuals from the 1 to 3 percent of the population that is sexually

attracted to the same sex are committing up to one-third of the sex
crimes against children.

Homosexuality and Child Sexual Abuse

Summary:
The circle of abuse is the tragic legacy of the attempts by homosexuals
to legitimize having sex with boys. For too many boys it is already too
late to protect them from those who took advantage of their need for
love and attention. All too many later perpetrate the abuse by
themselves engaging in the sexual abuse of boys. Only by exposing the
lies, insincere denials, and deceptions -- including those wrapped in
scholastic garb -- of those who prey sexually on children, can we hope
to build a wall of protection around the helpless children among us.

Issue No.: 247
by: Timothy J. Dailey, Ph. D.

Scandals involving the sexual abuse of under-age boys by homosexual
priests have rocked the Roman Catholic Church. At the same time,
defenders of homosexuality argue that youth organizations such as the
Boy Scouts should be forced to include homosexuals among their adult
leaders. Similarly, the Gay Lesbian and Straight Education Network
(GLSEN), a homosexual activist organization that targets schools, has
spearheaded the formation of "Gay-Straight Alliances" among students.
GLSEN encourages homosexual teachers--even in the youngest grades--to
be open about their sexuality, as a way of providing role models to
"gay" students. In addition, laws or policies banning employment
discrimination based on "sexual orientation" usually make no exception
for those who work with children or youth.

Many parents have become concerned that children may be molested,
encouraged to become sexually active, or even "recruited" into adopting
a homosexual identity and lifestyle. Gay activists dismiss such
concerns--in part, by strenuously insisting that there is no connection
between homosexuality and the sexual abuse of children.

However, despite efforts by homosexual activists to distance the gay
lifestyle from pedophilia, there remains a disturbing connection
between the two. This is because, by definition, male homosexuals are
sexually attracted to other males. While many homosexuals may not seek
young sexual partners, the evidence indicates that disproportionate
numbers of gay men seek adolescent males or boys as sexual partners. In
this paper we will consider the following evidence linking
homosexuality to pedophilia:

Pedophiles are invariably males: Almost all sex crimes against
children are committed by men.

Significant numbers of victims are males: Up to one-third of all sex
crimes against children are committed against boys (as opposed to
girls).

The 10 percent fallacy: Studies indicate that, contrary to the
inaccurate but widely accepted claims of sex researcher Alfred Kinsey,
homosexuals comprise between 1 to 3 percent of the population.

Homosexuals are overrepresented in child sex offenses: Individuals
from the 1 to 3 percent of the population that is sexually attracted to
the same sex are committing up to one-third of the sex crimes against
children.

Some homosexual activists defend the historic connection between
homosexuality and pedophilia: Such activists consider the defense of
"boy-lovers" to be a legitimate gay rights issue.

Pedophile themes abound in homosexual literary cultu Gay fiction
as well as serious academic treatises promote "intergenerational
intimacy."
MALE HOMOSEXUALS COMMIT A DISPROPORTIONATE NUMBER OF CHILD SEX ABUSE
CASES

Homosexual apologists admit that some homosexuals sexually molest
children, but they deny that homosexuals are more likely to commit such
offenses. After all, they argue, the majority of child molestation
cases are heterosexual in nature. While this is correct in terms of
absolute numbers, this argument ignores the fact that homosexuals
comprise only a very small percentage of the population.

The evidence indicates that homosexual men molest boys at rates grossly
disproportionate to the rates at which heterosexual men molest girls.
To demonstrate this it is necessary to connect several statistics
related to the problem of child sex abuse: 1) men are almost always the
perpetrator; 2) up to one-third or more of child sex abuse cases are
committed against boys; 3) less than three percent of the population
are homosexuals. Thus, a tiny percentage of the population (homosexual
men), commit one-third or more of the cases of child sexual molestation.
Men Account for Almost All Sexual Abuse of Children Cases

An essay on adult sex offenders in the book Sexual Offending Against
Children reported:"It is widely believed that the vast majority of
sexual abuse is perpetrated by males and that female sex offenders only
account for a tiny proportion of offences. Indeed, with 3,000 adult
male sex offenders in prison in England and Wales at any one time, the
corresponding figure for female sex offenders is 12!"[1]

Kee MacFarlane, et al., writing in Sexual Abuse of Young Children:
Evaluation and Treatment report:"The large majority of sexual
perpetrators appear to be males (Herman and Hirschman, 1981; Lindholm
and Willey, 1983)."[2]

A report by the American Professional Society on the Abuse of
Children states: "In both clinical and non-clinical samples, the vast
majority of offenders are male."[3]

A study in the Journal of Sex Research states that "pedophilia does
not exist, or is extremely rare, in women."[4]
A Significant Percentage of Child Sexual Abuse Victims are Boys

According to the Journal of Child Psychiatry: "It was commonly
believed fifteen years ago that girls were abused in excess of boys in
a ratio of about 9 to 1, but contemporary studies now indicate that the
ratio of girls to boys abused has narrowed remarkably. . . . The
majority of community studies suggest a . . . ratio . . . in the order
of 2 to 4 girls to 1 boy."[5] Another study found that "some authors
now believe that boys may be sexually abused as commonly as girls
(Groth, 1978; O'Brien, 1980)."[6]

A study of 457 male sex offenders against children in Journal of Sex
and Marital Therapy found that "approximately one-third of these sexual
offenders directed their sexual activity against males."[7]
Sexual Abuse of Boys is Underreported

The actual percentage of child sexual abuse victims who are boys very
likely exceeds the above estimates. Many researchers echo the view of
the Journal of Child Psychiatry study, which refers to the "under-
reporting of the incidence and prevalence of sexual abuse in boys."[8]

Dr. Robert Johnson, in Medical Aspects of Human Sexuality, reports:
"The vast majority of cases of male sexual molestation is not reported.
As a result, these young men keep both the incidents and their feelings
to themselves."[9]

The Department of Justice report on child sexual exploitation
explains why the percentage of boy victims is underestimated:
"Adolescent boy victims are highly likely to deny certain types of
sexual activity. . . . They are embarrassed and ashamed of their
behavior and rightfully believe that society will not understand their
victimization. . . . No matter what the investigator does, most
adolescent boys will deny they were victims."[10]

The Journal of Child Psychiatry adds: "Boys are usually encultured
into an ethos where self-reliance, independence and sexual prowess are
valued, while showing hurt or homosexuality are denigrated. . . . This
may lead to powerful repression or deletion of the experience, with
failure to report."[11]
Homosexuals Comprise Less than 3 Percent of the Population

Relying upon three large data sets: the General Social Survey, the
National Health and Social Life Survey, and the U.S. census, a recent
study in Demography estimates the number of exclusive male homosexuals
in the general population at 2.5 percent, and the number of exclusive
lesbians at 1.4 percent.[12]

A study of the sexual behavior of men in the United States based on
the National Survey of Men (a nationally representative sample
comprised of 3,321 men aged twenty to thirty-nine, published in Family
Planning Perspectives), found that "2 percent of sexually active men
aged twenty to thirty-nine . . . had had any same-gender sexual
activity during the last ten years. Approximately 1 percent of the men
(1.3 percent among whites and 0.2 percent among blacks) reported having
had exclusively homosexual activity.[13]

J. Gordon Muir, writing in The Wall Street Journal, discusses a
number of studies that have found that homosexuals comprise between 1
to 3 percent of the population.[14]

In a survey of studies on homosexuals in different populations, the
Archives of Sexual Behavior reported a random sample of Hawaii State
residents interviewed by telephone. The study found "just about 3
percent of males and 1.2 percent of females as having engaged in same-
sex or bisexual activity."[15] However, this relatively higher number
is attributed to the fact that the study was not limited to exclusive
homosexuals, but included all those who at some time in their lives
engaged in same-sex activities.[16]
Homosexual Pedophiles are Vastly Overrepresented in Child Sex Abuse
Cases

Homosexual pedophiles sexually molest children at a far greater rate
compared to the percentage of homosexuals in the general population. A
study in the Journal of Sex Research found, as we have noted above,
that "approximately one-third of [child sex offenders] had victimized
boys and two-thirds had victimized girls." The authors then make a
prescient observation: "Interestingly, this ratio differs substantially
from the ratio of gynephiles (men who erotically prefer physically
mature females) to androphiles (men who erotically prefer physically
mature males), which is at least 20 to 1."[17]

In other words, although heterosexuals outnumber homosexuals by a ratio
of at least 20 to 1, homosexual pedophiles commit about one-third of
the total number of child sex offenses.

Similarly, the Archives of Sexual Behavior also noted that homosexual
pedophiles are significantly overrepresented in child sex offence cases:
The best epidemiological evidence indicates that only 2 to 4 percent of
men attracted to adults prefer men (ACSF Investigators, 1992; Billy et
al.,1993; Fay et al.,1989; Johnson et al.,1992); in contrast, around 25
to 40 percent of men attracted to children prefer boys (Blanchard et
al.,1999; Gebhard et al.,1965; Mohr et al.,1964). Thus, the rate of
homosexual attraction is 6 to 20 times higher among pedophiles."[18]

The stark imbalance between homosexual and heterosexual child
molestationswas confirmed in the Archives of Sexual Behavior study
itself, which divided 260 pedophile participants into three groups:
"152 heterosexual pedophiles (men with offenses or self-reported
attractions involving girls only), 43 bisexual pedophiles (boys and
girls), and 65 homosexual pedophiles (boys only)."[19] In other words,
25 percent of the offenders were homosexual pedophiles--or 41 percent
if those who molest girls as well as boys are included.

Other studies report an unusually high percentage of child molestations
by homosexual pedophiles:

A study on pedophilia in the Psychiatric Journal of the University
of Ottawa reported: "According to the literature, findings of a two-to-
one ratio of heterosexual to homosexual pedophiles have been
documented."[20]

The Journal of Sex Research reports a study that included "199
offenders against female children and 96 offenders against male
children. . . . This would indicate a proportional prevalence of 32
percent of homosexual offenders against children."[21]

A study of male child sex offenders in Child Abuse and Neglect found
that fourteen percent targeted only males, and a further 28 percent
chose males as well as females as victims, thus indicating that 42
percent of male pedophiles engaged in homosexual molestation.[22]
ARE MEN WHO MOLEST BOYS REALLY 'HOMOSEXUALS'? Gay Apologists Insist on
a Simplistic Stereotype of Pedophilia

Central to the attempts to separate homosexuality from pedophilia is
the claim that pedophiles cannot, by definition, be considered
homosexuals. Relying upon a questionable methodology[23], the gay
advocacy organization Human Rights Campaign published a "Fact Sheet on
Sexual Orientation and Child Abuse," that states: "A sexual abuser who
molests a child of the same sex is usually not considered
homosexual."[24]

The basis for this claim is the view that pedophiles who molest boys
cannot be considered homosexual if that individual has at any time been
married or sexually involved with women.
'Homosexual Pedophiles': A Clinical Term

The fact is, however, that the terms "homosexual" and "pedophile" are
not mutually exclusive: they describe two intersecting types of sexual
attraction. Webster's Dictionary defines "homosexual" as someone who is
sexually attracted to persons of the same sex. "Pedophile" is defined
as "an adult who is sexually attracted to young children." The former
definition refers to the gender of the desired sexual object, while the
latter refers to the age of the desired sexual object.

A male "homosexual pedophile," then, is defined as someone who is
generally (but not exclusively, see below) sexually attracted to boys,
while a female "homosexual pedophile" is sexually attracted to
girls.[25]

The term "homosexual pedophile" was first used in the early 20th
century by the Viennese psychiatrist Dr. Richard von Krafft-Ebing, who
pioneered the systematic study of sexual deviance. Krafft-Ebing
described pedophiles as heterosexually, homosexually or bisexually
oriented.[26] This division has been accepted by pedophiles
themselves,[27] and is well attested in the literatu

A study of child molesters in Behavior Research and Therapy found
that "a homosexual and a heterosexual subgroup can be delineated among
these offenders."[28]

The Journal of Sex and Marital Therapy published a study on the same
topic, which discussed "the proportional prevalences of heterosexual
and homosexual pedophilia."[29] The study commented on a study that
found that "the percentage of the homosexual pedophiles would be 45.8."
Even adjusted downward for exhibitionists, "this would still indicate a
much higher percentage (34 percent) of homosexuals among pedophiles
than among men who prefer physically mature partners."[30]

In a review of studies on pedophilia, the Psychiatric Journal of the
University of Ottawa concluded: "The findings of previous studies
report that pedophiles can be divided into heterosexual and homosexual
pedophiles according to their erotic preference. . . . This was
confirmed in this recent study."[31] The article classified homosexual
pedophilia into three types: the socially inadequate homosexual
pedophile, the intrusive homosexual pedophile, and the undifferentiated
homosexual pedophile.[32]

A study of pedophiles in Behavior Research and Therapy concluded:
"The second, and perhaps the most important observation we made, is
that a homosexual and a heterosexual subgroup can be delineated among
these offenders. . . . Categorizing them in this way revealed important
differences in the pattern of their sexual preferences."[33]

The International Journal of Offender Therapy and Comparative
Criminology refers to homosexual pedophiles as a "distinct group." The
victims of homosexual pedophiles "were more likely to be strangers,
that they were more likely to have engaged in paraphiliac behavior
separate from that involved in the offence, and that they were more
likely to have past convictions for sexual offences. . . . Other
studies [showed a] greater risk of reoffending than those who had
offended against girls" and that the "recidivism rate for male-victim
offenders is approximately twice that for female-victim offenders."[34]
Homosexuals and Homosexual Pedophiles Engage in a Wide Variety of
Sexual Behavior that Belies Simplistic Categories

Despite this evidence, in their efforts to divorce homosexuality from
pedophilia, homosexual apologists insist on a rigid, narrow definition
of the terms "homosexual" and "pedophile" that permits no overlap of
the terms. They deny that homosexuals are attracted in inordinate
numbers to boys. They also claim that pedophiles cannot be classified
as "homosexual" if at any time they have had sexual relations with
women.

However, such a narrow definition does not do justice to the complex
nature of pedophilia. Researchers have long been aware that pedophiles
exhibit a wide variety of sexual attractions and behavior--often to
draw attention away from their primary lust for boys. A study on sex
offenders in the International Journal of Offender Therapy and
Comparative Criminology notes that "the reason child sexual abusers are
successful at remaining undetected is because they do not fit a
stereotype."[35]

The data indicates that both homosexuality and pedophilia are
intersecting categories that admit to a wide variety of sexual behavior:
Homosexual Males are Sexually Attracted to Underage Boys

A study in Archives of Sexual Behavior found that homosexual men are
attracted to young males. The study compared the sexual age preferences
of heterosexual men, heterosexual women, homosexual men, and lesbians.
The results showed that, in marked contrast to the other three
categories, "all but 9 of the 48 homosexual men preferred the youngest
two male age categories," which included males as young as age
fifteen.[36]

In The Gay Report, by homosexual researchers Karla Jay and Allen
Young, the authors report data showing that 73 percent of homosexuals
surveyed had at some time had sex with boys sixteen to nineteen years
of age or younger."[37]
Conversely, Homosexual Pedophiles are Often Attracted to Adult Males

A study of sex offenders against male children in Behavior Research
and Therapy found that male homosexual pedophiles are sexually
attracted to "males of all ages." Compared to non-offenders, the
offenders showed "greater arousal" to slides of nude males as old as
twenty-four: "As a group, the child molesters responsed [sp] with
moderate sexual arousal . . . to the nude males of all ages."[38]

A study of Canadians imprisoned for pedophilia in the Journal of
Interpersonal Violence noted that some of the adult male offenders
engaged in homosexual acts with adult males.[39]

Many pedophiles, in fact, consider themselves to be homosexual. A
study of 229 convicted child molesters in Archives of Sexual Behavior
found that "eighty-six percent of offenders against males described
themselves as homosexual or bisexual."[40]

Fr. John Harvey, founder and director of Courage, a support ministry
for Catholics who struggle with same-sex attraction, explains that "the
pedophile differs from the ordinary homosexual in that the former
admires boyishness in the object of his affections, while the latter
admires manliness."[41] However, the categories are not completely
separate:
While granting that the majority of homosexuals are not aroused by
young boys, the distinction between homosexuality and homosexual
pedophilia is not quite absolute. In some cases the interest oscillates
between young adolescents and adults, in others between boys and
adolescents; in exceptional cases a man may be interested in boys at
one time and adults at another.[42]
Many Pedophiles are Attracted to Women, Marry, and Have Children

Gay activists insist that pedophilia has nothing to do with
homosexuality because pedophiles are only sexually interested in
children, whereas homosexuals only have sexual relations with adults.
We have already seen that this stereotypical view is not correct with
regard to homosexuals. There is also abundant evidence demonstrating
that, while primarily interested in children, pedophiles nevertheless
exhibit a wide variety of sexual behaviors, including relationships
with women:

A study in Child Abuse and Neglect found that 48 percent of the
offenders either were married or had been married at some time.[43]

The Journal of Interpersonal Violence studied the sexual preferences
of male pedophiles who sexually abused children. When they compared the
sexual response of the pedophiles with the control group, they found,
unexpectedly: "Surprisingly, the two groups did not differ in their
response to the nude female stimuli."[44]

A study in the Psychiatric Journal of the University of Ottawa
reported that "most of the middle-aged pedophiles have had significant
adult sexual activity."[45] Fifty-eight percent of the pedophiles in
one study had at least one child, while other research indicated that
"more than two-thirds of the married pedophiles in their sample had
children, with an average of two to three children per subject."[46]

A report by the Department of Justice addressed the devious
stratagems of pedophiles, who will go to great lengths to conceal their
true desires: "Preferential sex offenders may be 'pillars of the
community' and are often described as 'nice guys.' They almost always
have a means of access to children (for example, through marriage,
neighborhood, or occupation.)"[47]

Thus, the evidence shows that homosexual pedophiles cannot be narrowly
defined as individuals who are solely attracted to underage boys. In
fact there is considerable overlap between homosexuality and pedophilia.
PEDOPHILIA IN GAY CULTURE The Historical Connection between Pedophilia
and the Gay Rights Movement

David Thorstad is a homosexual activist and historian of the gay rights
movement.[48] He is a former president of New York's Gay Activists
Alliance (GAA), a prototype activist group founded in December 1969.
The GAA at its inception opposed age of consent laws, which prohibited
adults from having sex with children.[49] Thorstad is also a pedophile
and founding member of the North American Man Boy Love Association
(NAMBLA).

Thorstad argues that there is a natural and undeniable connection
between homosexuality and pedophilia. He expresses bitterness that the
gay rights movement has, in his view, abandoned pedophilia. Thorstad
writes: "Boy-lovers were involved in the gay movement from the
beginning, and their presence was tolerated. Gay youth groups
encouraged adults to attend their dances. . . . There was a mood of
tolerance, even joy at discovering the myriad of lifestyles within the
gay and lesbian subculture."[50]

The inaugural issue of the Gay Community News in 1979 published a
"Statement to the Gay Liberation Movement on the Issue of Man/Boy
Love," which challenged the movement to return to a vision of sexual
liberation. It argued that "the ultimate goal of gay liberation is the
achievement of sexual freedom for all--not just equal rights for
'lesbian and gay men,' but also freedom of sexual expression for young
people and children."

In the early years there was some reluctance to accept pedophilia,
primarily among feminist and lesbian activist groups. In March 1979 the
Lesbian Feminist Liberation (LFL) accusing "so-called Man/Boy Lovers"
of "attempting to legitimize sex between children and adults. . . .
Feminists easily recognize this as the latest attempt to make palatable
the sexual exploitation of children." The coalition went on record as
opposing "the sexual abuse of children by heterosexual or homosexual
persons."[51]

Despite this opposition, Thorstad claims that by 1985 homosexual
pedophiles had won acceptance within the gay movement. He cites Jim
Kepner, then curator of the International Gay and Lesbian Archives in
Los Angeles: "A point I've been trying to make is that if we reject the
boylovers in our midst today we'd better stop waving the banner of the
Ancient Greeks, of Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, Oscar Wilde, Walt
Whitman, Horatio Alger, and Shakespeare. We'd better stop claiming them
as part of our heritage unless we are broadening our concept of what it
means to be gay today."[52]

In 1985 NAMBLA was admitted as a member in New York's council of
Lesbian and Gay Organizations as well as the International Gay
Association--now the International Lesbian and Gay Association (ILGA).
In the mid-1990's ILGA's association with NAMBLA and other pedophile
groups cost the organization it's status as a Non-Governmental
Organization in the United Nations.

ILGA's renewed attempt to gain admittance to the UN was rejected again
in April 2002 because the organization "did not document that it had
purged pedophile groups such as [NAMBLA]." The Washington Times reports
that Ishtiag H. Anrabi, Pakistani delegate to the UN Economic and
Social Council, expressed concern that ILGA was continuing to be
secretive about ties with pedophile groups: "For more than a year, the
ILGA has refused to provide documentation or allow review of its
membership list to demonstrate that pedophilia groups have been
expelled."[53]
Pedophile Themes Abound in Gay Literature

The late "beat" poet Allen Ginsberg illustrates the seamless connection
between homosexuality and pedophilia. Many know Ginsberg as an
illustrious "out" homosexual poet: fewer are aware that he was also a
pedophile.

Biographer Raymond-Jean Frontain refers to Ginsberg's publications in
both NAMBLA Bulletin and NAMBLA Journal. He discusses how Ginsberg's
biographers failed to discuss his poems that contained pederastic
themes:
Although both Shumacher and Barry Miles (Ginsberg's initial biographer)
frankly discuss Ginsberg's sexual politics, neither refers to his
involvement with the controversial North American Man/Boy Love
Association. . . . I reread Collected Poems and Ginsberg's two
subsequent collections, surprised by the pattern of references to anal
intercourse and to pederasty that emerged.[54]

Ginsberg was one of the first of a growing number of homosexual writers
who cater to the fascination with pedophilia in the gay community. Mary
Eberstadt, writing in the Weekly Standard, documents how the taboo
against sex with children continues to erode--with the impetus coming
from homosexual writers.[55]

Revealingly, the examples she provides of pedophilia in current
literature come from gay fiction. Eberstadt cites the Village Voice,
which states that "Gay fiction is rich with idyllic accounts of
'intergenerational relationships,' as such affairs are respectfully
called these days."[56] Other examples of pedophilia-themed gay fiction
include:

In the introduction of the "mainstream" homosexual anthology Penguin
Book on International Gay Writing, David Leavitt notes matter-of-factly
that "Another 'forbidden' topic from which European writers seem less
likely to shrink is the love of older men for young boys." Leavitt
praises one book with a pedophilic theme included in the anthology as a
"coolly assured narrative [which] compels the reader to imagine the
world from a perspective he might ordinarily condemn."[57]

Several texts included in another anthology, The Gay Canon: Great
Books Every Gay Man Should Read, feature scenes of man-boy sex. One
such book is praised as "an operatic adventure into the realms of love,
personality, ambition and art . . . a pure joy to read." The
protagonist is "a pedophile's dream: the mind of a man in the body of a
boy."[58] Another novel which includes graphic descriptions of sexual
violence against boys is said to "[tear] straight to the heart of one
of the greatest sources, community-wide, of 1990's gay angst: What to
do with men who love boys?"[59]

Yet another anthology of homosexual fiction, A History of Gay
Literatu The Male Tradition, published by Yale University Press,
includes "a longish chapter on 'Boys and Boyhood' which is a seemingly
definitive account of pro-pedophile literary works."[60] The author
appears more concerned with the feelings and emotions of the man than
with his boy victim. He explores the question of "whether or not you
regard [having sex with boys] as a way of retreating from life or, on
the contrary, as a way of engaging with it at its most honest and least
corrupted level."[61]

A significant percentage of books that have appeared on the Gay
Men's Press fiction bestseller list contain pedophilia themes,
including:
Some Boys: described as a "memoir of a lover of boys" that "evokes the
author's young friends across four decades."[62]
For a Lost Soldier: the story of a sexual relationship between a
soldier and an eleven-year-old boy, set during World War II.[63]
A Good Start, Considering: yet another story about an eleven-year-old
boy (!) who suffers sexual abuse but is rescued by a teenager who
"offers him love and affection"[64]
Terre Haute: billed as "A poetic novel of sexual awakening in the
American Midwest, tracing an adolescent's journey from introspection to
perilous desire."
Shiva and Arun: the story of two Indian adolescents who "discover early
on the joys of sex."
Teardrops on My Drum: barefoot kids in 1920's Liverpool search for
"adventure, love and sex."
Pro-pedophilia Publications

Recent years have seen the appearance of publications that lend a
scholarly veneer to the fascination with pedophilia in the gay
community. Such publications attempt to make the case for
"intergenerational intimacy." The nation's largest gay publisher,
Alyson Publications, which distributes Daddy's Roommate and other
homosexual books that promote homosexuality to children, publishes
books advocating man-boy sex, including:

Paedophilia: The Radical Case, which contains detailed information
on how to engage in sexual relations with young boys.[65]

The Age Taboo, another defense of pedophiliawhich claims: "Boy-
lovers . . . are not child molesters. The child abusers are . . .
parents who force their staid morality onto the young people in their
custody."[66]
The Journal of Homosexuality and Pedophilia

The Journal of Homosexuality is viewed as the premier "mainstream"
English-language publication of the gay movement. One prominent editor
is John DeCecco, a psychologist at San Francisco State University who
also serves on the editorial board of the Dutch pedophile journal
Paidika. It is therefore not surprising to see pedophilia promoted on
its pages.

In 1990 the Journal of Homosexuality published a series of essays on
pedophilia that were eventually published as Male Inter-Generational
Intimacy:Historical, Socio-Psychological, and Legal Perspectives,
edited by pedophile Edward Brongersma. None of the essays offered any
substantive criticism of pedophilia: most blatantly promoted man-boy
love as the natural right of homosexuals.

In 1999 Helmut Graupner, wrote an article on pedophilia in the Journal
of Homosexuality, in which he claims: "Man/boy and woman/girl relations
without doubt are same-sex relations and they do constitute an aspect
of gay and lesbian life." Graupner argues that, as such, consensual
sexual relations between adult homosexuals and youths as young as
fourteen qualifies as a "gay rights issue."[67]

The fascination with pedophilia continues to be a cause of concern even
within the gay community. Lesbian columnist Paula Martinac, writing in
the homosexual newspaper Washington Blade, states:
[S]ome gay men still maintain that an adult who has same-sex relations
with someone under the legal age of consent is on some level doing the
kid a favor by helping to bring him or her 'out.' It's not pedophilia,
this thinking goes--pedophilia refers only to little kids. Instead,
adult-youth sex is viewed as an important aspect of gay culture, with a
history dating back to 'Greek love' of ancient times. This romanticized
version of adult-youth sexual relations has been a staple of gay
literature and has made appearances, too, in gay-themed films.[68]

Martinac adds that "When some gay men venerate adult-youth sex as
affirming while simultaneously declaring 'We're not pedophiles,' they
send an inconsistent message to society. . . . The lesbian and gay
community will never be successful in fighting the pedophile stereotype
until we all stop condoning sex with young people."[69]
VICTIM'S TURNED VICTIMIZERS: THE CONSEQUENCES OF HOMOSEXUAL CHILD ABUSE

The steadfast denial of the disturbing ties with pedophilia within the
homosexual movement is no purely academic matter. Perhaps the most
tragic aspect of the homosexual-pedophile connection is the fact that
men who sexually molest boys all too often lead their victims into
homosexuality and pedophilia. The evidence indicates that a high
percentage of homosexuals and pedophiles were themselves sexually
abused as children:

The Archives of Sexual Behavior reports: "One of the most salient
findings of this study is that 46 percent of homosexual men and 22
percent of homosexual women reported having been molested by a person
of the same gender. This contrasts to only 7 percent of heterosexual
men and 1 percent of heterosexual women reporting having been molested
by a person of the same gender."[70]

A study of 279 homosexual/bisexual men with AIDS and control
patients discussed in the Journal of the American Medical Association
reported: "More than half of both case and control patients reported a
sexual act with a male by age 16 years, approximately 20 percent by age
10 years."[71]

Noted child sex abuse expert David Finkelhor found that "boys
victimized by older men were over four times more likely to be
currently engaged in homosexual activity than were non-victims. The
finding applied to nearly half the boys who had had such an experience.
. . Further, the adolescents themselves often linked their
homosexuality to their sexual victimization experiences."[72]

A study in the International Journal of Offender Therapy and
Comparative Criminology found:"In the case of childhood sexual
experiences prior to the age of fourteen, 40 percent (of the pedophile
sample) reported that they had engaged 'very often' in sexual activity
with an adult, with 28 percent stating that this type of activity had
occurred 'sometimes'"[73]

A National Institute of Justice report states that "the odds that a
childhood sexual abuse victim will be arrested as an adult for any sex
crime is 4.7 times higher than for people . . . who experienced no
victimization as children."[74]

A Child Abuse and Neglect study found that 59 percent of male child
sex offenders had been "victim of contact sexual abuse as a child."[75]

The Journal of Child Psychiatry noted that "there is a tendency
among boy victims to recapitulate their own victimization, only this
time with themselves in the role of perpetrator and someone else the
victim."[76]

The circle of abuse is the tragic legacy of the attempts by homosexuals
to legitimize having sex with boys. For too many boys it is already too
late to protect them from those who took advantage of their need for
love and attention. All too many later perpetrate the abuse by
themselves engaging in the sexual abuse of boys. Only by exposing the
lies, insincere denials, and deceptions--including those wrapped in
scholastic garb--of those who prey sexually on children, can we hope to
build a wall of protection around the helpless children among us.

16. Ibid. Significantly, a number of studies that were surveyed, and
which skewed the overall percentages of homosexuals upwards,
included such vague definers as those having had "any homosexual
body contact." In contrast, one study that was limited to
self-identifying homosexuals found that less than 2 percent of the
male respondents considered their "sexual orientation" to be
homosexual, p. 293.
17. Freund, "Heterosexuality, Homosexuality, and Erotic Age
Preference," p. 107. In this and previous studies, Freund claims
that homosexuals are no more likely than heterosexuals to be
attracted to children (p. 115). However, Silverthorn, et al.,
mentions the limitations of studies by Freund and others: "Studies
of homosexual male preferences are also limited. . . . The Freund
et al.(1973) study was possibly compromised because the homosexual
men used in the study were selected to be sexually attracted to
adults, but not teenaged, males. The Bailey et al. (1994) study was
limited in that it did not present participants with objective
stimuli but simply asked participants to report what age of sexual
partner they preferred . . . the Jankowiak et al. (1992) study . .
. was limited in two ways: the homosexual male participants had a
limited age range of 'middle-aged professionals' and the stimuli
presented to participants were also of a limited age range
('university to middle-aged')." Silverthorn attempted to correct
these deficiencies, and in his study found that homosexuals
"preferred younger partners than those who preferred female
partners"--including those as young as fifteen. Zebulon A.

claims that only 2 of 269 child molesters could be identified as
gay or lesbian. Carole Jenny, et al., "Are Children at Risk for
Sexual Abuse by Homosexuals?" Pediatrics 94 (July 1994): 41-44.
However, the Jenny study utilized an atypical research technique:
the reported child molesters themselves were not interviewed.
Instead, the researchers relied upon the subjective opinions of
"informants" who accompanied the child victim to the medical
clinic. The qualifications for such "informants" to determine the
sexual behavior of the accused molester were not established.
However, once it is "determined" beforehand that pedophiles who
molest boys cannot be considered gay or homosexual if they have had
sexual relations with women, it is a foregone conclusion that few
if any of the pedophiles -who often have girlfriends, are married,
and have children - will be labeled homosexual. The Jenny study
used this narrow profile despite the fact that the study itself
found that 22 percent of the perpetrators were of the same sex as
the victim. In these cases the molesters clearly engaged in
homosexual sexual molestation.
