“What would it take to make our national encounter with gay marriage redemptive rather than divisive? David Blankenhorn and Jonathan Rauch came to the gay marriage debate from very different directions — but with a shared concern about the institution of marriage. Now, they’re pursuing a different way for all of us to grapple with the future of marriage, redefined. They model a fresh way forward as the subject of same-sex marriage is before the Supreme Court.”

You could replace the term “gay marriage” with “pedophile issues” or “intergenerational relationships” at a number of places…

…What strikes me so bluntly whenever I encounter these kinds of discussions…is that the people talking about “gay and lesbian” issues, are also talking exactly about pedosexual’s issues, in almost every way…they just don’t understand it, or refuse to accept the vast common ground…

…It is as if they are a proxy, representing and talking about our issues, as pedosexuals…as Child Lovers…as Teen Lovers…as disenfranchised youth and children…Only, they refuse to acknowledge that we suffer horribly, under these exact same social conflicts and ills…

Worse still…some of them believe we deserve our plight, and that we don’t deserve a voice or humane standing in society…all the while standing there, and arguing passionately on behalf of their own right to a voice and humane social standing.

I offer these kinds of dialogues here, despite this…because I see gems of wisdom in there, even if they are focused very narrowly. All who possess an open mind willing to be taught, can learn from what is here.

…And I think these discussions are a wonderful template, for constructive dialogue which actually brings people closer…

Why don’t we have this sort of thing for all people, including every type of sexually repressed group?…

…If this world were interested in getting to the heart of all social ills…we certainly would have this openness…even for children, youth and pedosexuals.

…And no, I would hope that I don’t have to point out…I am not trying to suggest that pedosexuals and children [youth] want to get married to each other, as a common thing…

I mean the other things which come up…like the effects of being ostracized from the larger population and culture…I mean the need and striving, to find our own way into the world around us…to be a productive, embraced and cherished part of it…to have a meaningful role in it, and it’s direction…to be validated human beings…to even be leaders.
