NAMBLA Presentation Transcript

  • 1. NAMBLA: The North American Man-Boy Love
  • 2. NAMBLA
    • It’s an organization formed in 1978, based in the United States, that believes mutually consensual relationships between grown men and boys should be legal.
  • 3. Historical Background:
    • 750 BC to 480 BC
    • During the archaic times, Greek pederasty was an erotic love relationship between an adolescent boy and an unrelated adult man.
    • The boys were usually courted and had the options of choosing their mate, which would be a man of an older age.
    • Pederasty was accepted through out Greece as part of a male’s coming of age.
    • Pederasty was the idealized form of an age-structured homoeroticism.
    • Proverb: A lover is the best friend a boy will ever have.
  • 4. Greek Pederasty is Opposed as a Model for Man-Boy Love by SOME of NAMBLA’s Members
    • Those that opposed believed that it was elitist
    • The lover of the boy was obligated to train the boy to be a good citizen
    • The relationship was expected to be discrete
    • Sexual tourism was not encouraged

    • Cooperating with lesbian, gay, feminist, and other liberation movements;
    • Supporting the liberation of persons of all ages from sexual prejudice and oppression.

  • 7. NAMBLA in 1982, Washington, D. C.
  • 8. NAMBLA condemns sexual abuse but members of NAMBLA have been charged with murder and rape.
  • 9. The Story of Jeffrey Curley http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5KtaNRfvwM0
    • In 1997, Jeffrey Curly, a 10 year old boy, was murdered by two members of NAMBLA.
    • One of the members, Charles Jaynes, stated in his diary that the NAMBLA’s bulletin helped him to become aware of his own sexuality and acceptance of it.
  • 10. The parents of Jeffrey Curley decided to sue NAMBLA because the two pedophiles that killed their son was apart of this organization. ACLU (American Civil Liberties Union) assisted NAMBLA and stated that the suit violated their First Amendment rights to free speech. The lawsuit was dropped by the parents in April 2008 when the judge determined the key witness as being incompetent .
  • 11. Other Cases shows that NAMBLA Serves as a Meeting Place for Men to Commit Sexual Crimes against Children
    • In 2003, Peter Melzer was a NAMBLA treasurer and Bulletin editor. He was a physics teacher at Bronx High School of Science. He stated that he expressed a sexual interest in boys up to age 16 and he has acted on those desires. In his NAMBLA Bulletin, he printed instructions for seducing young boys and avoiding law enforcement along with sensual accounts of sexual encounters between adults and minors.
    • In 2005, Kevin Brown was a self professed pedophile. He called Rick Robert’s radio show on KFMB in response to a $1000 for the location of NAMBLA members placed by Rick Robert. He stated that he would use the $1000 to pay for a play that he was writing which is about a romance between adults and children. Rick Roberts heard a child in the background of Kevin Brown’s house and demanded to clarify if he was the father of this child. In about two weeks, child protective services seized his 2 years old son for the possession of child pornography and his support of the sexual exploitation of minor children.

    • Some anti-child abuse groups, Christian groups, Jewish groups, anti-pedophilia organizations, anti-sexual abuse organizations, law enforcement agencies and other critics see NAMBLA as a front for the criminal sexual exploitation of children.
  • 13. Groups Against NAMBLA
    • Absolute Zero
    • Alt.hackers.malicious: The War Against NAMBLA
  • 14. Outlook for the Future
    • I believe that the members of NAMBLA are all just pedophiles and child molesters and that they need to be locked up in prison for the fact that they are taking away these young boys childhood by engaging them in adult-like sexual acts.
    • I believe that they do list instructions on how to persuade a boy to become sexually intimate with a man in the NAMBLA’s Instruction Manual. Unfortunately, the manual isn’t posted anywhere on the web.
    • I don’t believe that these behaviors between the adult man and young boy is beneficial to the boy.
    • I believe it’s going to take a great deal of time to ban the NAMBLA from having an organization.
