Stop pissing down our backs and calling it rain, Dingleberry.<quoted text>
No Gary, it's not written or intended for people under 18. It's because of this that Dr. Steven Boswell, the CEO of Fenway Community Health, apologized for accidently bringing a handful of copies to the one time conference that you continually misrepresent. When my children are over 18 I will have no probelem with them reading the booklet, but don't know why they would since they are not the target audience.
The evidence below shows The Little Black Book was both written for and distributed to boys under 18.
1. Starting on page one -- "Hey, Queer, Boys!" = the tract refers to readership as boys or youth at least 20 times.
2. It refers its target readership to several youth organizations such as the "Bagley Gay Youth Alliance Club" an organization that -- "serves Youth 22 and under -- where youth can meet and make friends."
Incidentally, Bagley is "adult-run." In fact, Bagley is basically a place where adult gay males can hook-up with underage boys.
3. Throughout this pedophile tract the editorial slant is that of an adult counseling an adolescent. Consider:
..."The Boston area is a good place to be young and queer,"
..."We have lots of services for queer youth," ...
..."Don't take a loved one's nasty remarks as the final word on your queerness.
..."If coming out might result in being kicked out of your home or school, maybe you should wait."
... "Who says gays can't be jocks? There are gay hockey players, softball players, rugby...
..."Queers are teachers, policeman, UPS Drivers, waiters, doctors -- you name it!"
Now, honestly, Dingleberry, who would need to be told queers are teachers, policeman, hockey players etc -- an 18 year old or a 14 year old?
4. Adolescent slang: "Mutual jerking off is hot fun!" ... "Handy Dandy Condom Guide!" ..."Doctor Dick"
5. Speaking of the doctor cartoon character the editors so cleverly name "Dr. Dick" -- he's a 1930s public domain cartoon character used in high school health education texts of that era . His purpose back then is the same purpose the editors of the The Little Black Book had in mind -- to grab the interest of children.
6. Peer Action ad. Peer Action is another man-boy hook-up club for underage boys. The number is in the booklet; call them up and ask them.
7. The booklet was handed out at high school youth conferences.
8. The booklet was handed out to every boy -- as young as 14!-- who entered the "Youth on Fire" drop-in center for runaways.
9. The book introduces the ritual of "coming out" and explains what it means and the best way to do it.
There's more but I'll stop here.
Bottom line, the reason why the booklet was taken out of circulation was because its editors knew there was no way anyone with a brain would believe it WASN'T intended for under-age boys.
Or maybe you'd like to explain why they stopped handing it out?
I won't hold my breath.
"Youth" means underage. Young adult means over 18. You know this, anyone with a brain knows this, but in order to protect the pedo predators who published and distributed this kiddie porn recrutment tract you would have us believe the word "youth" now only means young adults over 18.
Have you no shame, Dingleberry?
Isn't there a limit to the lengths you'll go to help pedo predators gain unfettered access to underage boys?
