Gay men need to talk straight about paedophilia; Rather than campaign on the age of consent, it might silence anti-gay bigots if some gay men spoke out against atrocities towards children; Julie Bindel Saturday March 3, 2001 The Guardian

Gay men need to talk straight about paedophilia; The protests about Eminem's lyrics by gay rights activists have raised issues of homophobia in the media. One way anti-gay bigots seek to poison minds against homosexual men is to label them all child abusers. While this is clearly an offensive generalisation, gay men need to ask themselves if they are doing anything to fuel this argument. Julie Bindel - Guardian Unlimited March 17, 2001

Canadian reports about Sharpe case
Two reports from Canadian Press. The first is legal, in greater detail than the Reuters report sent in another posting. The second is an interview with Sharpe himself. He seems in a bad way after all his troubles. I'm a bit pushed for time personally, but I wonder if anyone else on this list could track him down, maybe via his solicitor or whatever, just to offer a little social support.

The joy of not having sex - yet, 26th January 2001
Just as every generation of teenagers acts as if it is the first to discover sex, every generation of middle-aged adults acts as if it is the first to discover that teenagers are having sex. Certainly the current generation of middle-aged American adults is acting that way, since teen sex has become something of a cultural preoccupation here.
The Washington Post ran a front-page story a year or two ago that chronicled the sexual activities of a bunch of upper-middle-class 13-year-olds and reported that a bacchanal of blow jobs was taking place behind the bike sheds.

The bizarre case has been quietly unfolding in a Toronto suburb since the young defendant was arrested last spring, three months after her 12th birthday.
