01) A Silent Truth – complete short film
“Short Film: 42 minutes. On his 14th birthday, Ian Foster (Daniel Sovich) reaches a critical point in his life where he realizes that he can no longer withstand the burden of his self-denial that he is gay. But he feels he can not come out to his mother, Linda (Kimberly J. Mahoney), who has strong views against the gay community and takes great pride in believing that her son is a “ladies man”. Believing that his best friend, Jessica (Dani Apple), is the only person in whom he can confide, Ian fears that revealing his true self to his family and friends will mean losing their love and acceptance forever.

Funny how you say you’re against illegal activity, isn’t pedo sexuality considered illeagal? How does a child who’s brain hasn’t fully been developed and still doesn’t know how to make decisions like an adult be subject to this? No child should ever have to suffer like this. This is sick and twisted. And who ever ingages in pedo sexuality will be found and reported to the police.
You are confused, I see…
…What I say, is follow the laws of the land where you live…If those laws are unjust, then work to change them.
Regardless…always lead an ethical life, worthy of respect.
Laws cannot strip human intimacy, of it’s positive and uplifting effects…no matter what grounds they claim to take dominion on.
Human intimacy, including that of a sexual nature, is an issue which finds it’s relevance amongst the people it fits…those who mutually want it for themselves, and for each other.
Small minded bigots, like you, will never be able to strip human sexuality, of it’s true beauty…no matter how much you hiss, spit and throw a fit.
I never said I was against positive social change…
…Given how negative, inhumane and unbearable today’s world is against sexual minorities…a swing of the pendulum, for the benefit of the oppressed, is all any half decent person of conscience should be hoping for.
Save your threats, impotent girl.
Depends on what you call pedosexuality, beloved. If it’s a feeling, it can not be forbidden. A lot of people want to do illegal things and don’t because they feel that the risk is too great.
It’s important to remember that children are underdeveloped, indeed, but that doesn’t stop several other activities between adults and children. The immaturity isn’t an obstacle for pedagogy, for example. Plus, the child can learn. In societies that are more tolerant, the immaturity isn’t a problem. For example, age of consent in my country is 14. That may sound too low for people in the United States, but that works well for us. A lot of minors enjoy being “initiated” that way. Plus, if an adult really does know better, he will ensure a good experience as long as he means well. Mean-spirit adults exist, indeed, but most of the time they are not pedophiles: https://broadly.vice.com/en_us/article/mgmzwn/most-child-sex-abusers-are-not-pedophiles-expert-says . I know it sounds strange, but your justified anger is being misdirected.
Statistical evidence fails to show that all children in sexual contacts with adults suffer. You can see some statistics in my country here: https://link.springer.com/article/10.1007/s10508-011-9748-y .
Last, it’s actually really underreported. “It is important to note that, under certain circumstances, extrafamilial CSA may be likely to affect adversely family functioning, as in cases where CSA episodes become known to the family and to the police. In this situation, tension may arise in the family, representing secondary consequences of the CSA (cf. Baurmann, 1983). Most commonly, however, CSA episodes do not come to the attention of the family or police; for example, Laumann et al. (1994), in their national probability sample, found that only 22% of their SA respondents ever told anyone.” https://maggiemcneill.files.wordpress.com/2011/04/rind-tromovich-1998.pdf .
I’m not saying that minor-attracted people should go and break the law, but that we should not assume that the law will always work. However, considering that pedophile and child molester are different things, that (specially in other cultures) those contacts don’t always result in harm, that most people who offend the law aren’t pedophiles, isn’t your anger towards minor-attracted people disproportional to what they are?
Don’t take this as an insult or provocation, however. I have no bad feelings towards you. Sleep well.
Thank you, Yure…
…I get very tired of these people, who want to come here and dump this sort of venom wherever they please…
There is no mechanism, by which minors are intrinsically harmed by simple, pleasing, sexual behavior.
People like Laura have no right, to demand that such reality be scrubbed clean from public knowledge.
I simply believe that all people have an absolute right, regardless of age…to knowledge, choice, experience and satiating of their biological needs.
Some people imagine that makes me some kind of monster…
…In reality, I’m a humanitarian, who is consistent in his principles.
Oh dear, oh dear Laura … yet another illiterate bigot whose brain is unlikely ever to develop sufficiently to reach its full human potential. Paedosexuality is a sexual orientation, just like heterosexuality and homosexuality are sexual orientations. Paedosexuality is not an activity.
Can you believe the post she left this comment on?…
…A movie featuring the delicate topic of coming out as homosexual, from an adolescent’s point of view…touching on issues such as gay teen suicide…
…And that is where her mind directly went?…
…Not only is she off topic…you have to be an absolute A-Hole, to express such callous things towards such a movie, and the issues it represents.
