The age taboo or how homosexuality went blunt
What happened was fateful and would change the gay movement up to this day. Because the gay movement didn't, as one would have expected, defend this form of homosexuality [pederasty], realizing the attack on it was an attack on homosexuality itself. The gay movement didn't condemn this attack of the SS [straight society]. It didn't continue to fight for human rights. It didn't even remain indifferent - it joined forces with the SS and started to condemn its own actions! The decline of homosexuality had started. [...]
NAMBLA [North American Man/Boy Love association] was kicked out of ILGA, an organization that previously used to advocate the abolishment of age-of-consent laws. [...] The gay movement was aware of this, but it had given up and chosen side - it wanted to become straight. The homosexual man had chosen to be wallowing in humiliation under the Straight Man, whom he adored, but who sure as hell hated him anyway.
