“I wonder what proportion of the people caught up in the justice system for looking at child pornography have even gotten as far as to have developed a conscious sense of their sexuality as part of their identity. Before we can even get to the point where we might be encouraged to overcome our fear and work collectively toward a productive goal, enough people need to be made to understand and accept their sexuality and its virtue for them to feel their freedom is worth fighting for.
Perhaps those two things – consciousness raising and collective action – can go on simultaneously, but my sense at the moment is that people must identify with pride and without shame as boylovers (or what have you) before they can come to act together.”
You’ve just tapped into the same wave I’ve been surfing on, for years!
Even from my earliest days on [BoyChat]…I’ve remained focused on building the human identity of BoyLovers…as well as a sense of social belonging and self worth.
We have a crisis of multiple fronts, decimating our larger social class as BoyLovers [and Girl-Lovers, also].
One of these crisis, is that so painfully few seem to have ever so much as envisioned something better, for “our kind” as a whole…And I include people of all ages here, because this is not merely “our” crisis as BoyLovers…This is a social crisis, for those who care about human love and open association, as well as care about the plethora of social problems created by absolute prohibition laws.
Those of us here, are not even a scratch of the surface…and we need to be “out there”, tapping into the masses…spreading knowledge and hope…even just being an example, for others to look at and consider.
As minorities [Sexually active Teens, Children, BoyLovers, Girl-Lovers, etc.]…we exist broken and saddled, like a horse…not understanding there are wild and free horses in this world. Not understanding how things could be for us, and the people we love.
There is nothing to build upon, when we don’t have masses with vision, who know they are entitled to seek better for themselves and those they love.
People who don’t believe they can, or have right too, fight for themselves and those they love, will never come together or take any risk…and they will never accomplish anything, that betters their/our social state of being.
For me…this is the most important wall to break down, in this moment of human existence. It is the obvious thing to be focusing on.
