This selection from “In Self Defense: The Life and Times of An Atheist BoyLover…Memoirs and Ethos”, has been narrated by Rocco White. Please enjoy the listen, or read along if you like…or need to.


What is a pedophile?…

What is an atheist?…

…a humanist?…a boylover?…

Are they the typical stereotype you see on the news, read about in the papers and see on the movie screens?

Hello, I’m Steve Diamond.

In June of 2006, I began a personal project which I entitled, “In Self Defense…The life and times of an atheist boylover”.

My intention was simple…

…to provide a refreshingly clear look into the mind and heart of an actual pedophile, atheist and humanist.

…Clearing away the stereotypes, and banishing the stigmas, this work in progress aims to paint a picture of one man…a pedophile…an atheist…a boylover…an outcast…as he actually is.

The reader is left to experience, and come to terms with, what is presented here in.

These are “snap shots” of my life…of my ethics…my joys…my fears…my heartbreaks and anguish…my triumphs…of the way I relate to, and survive in, a hostile environment.

Much of this material is raw and full of emotion…and while I do refrain from using “vulgar language” most of the time, this is not always the case…Some issues call for such evocative words.

…You will experience the emotion and genuine care, flood through many of these passages.

There is no “road map” here…and since this project started out as a blog, that lended itself well towards allowing me to simply choose and expand on issues, as I felt prepared to talk about them.

Some parts are very short…others are very long…They include ethical concepts and definitions which are important to me…They are what I base my ethical codes upon, and influence how I live my life…Also included, are true stories from my own life…and glimpses into my life’s journey…and, of course, there are many passages, delving directly into issues of social conflict, which effect myself, as a pedophile and an atheist.

Presented is an outlook and a vision, as only some one of my particular set of circumstances and life experiences can express.

These works were never intended to attack anyone, in specific…though, several do attack certain types of behavior.

Portions of this work have been called, “thought provoking”, and “powerful”.

I hope you can find it within yourself, to approach this project with an open and clear mind…in order to discover, just why they have been called such.

I am not a stereotype…I am not a monster…I don’t want to hurt even one single child…

…I am a human being…I am a child lover…

Thank you for your interest…All thoughtful, respectful feedback is welcome.
