We tend to be blind to our own taboos and invent rationales for seeing them as completely reasonable. Boy lovers are
no strangers to this blind spot in American society. Affection for a boy not one's direct relative is at best considered strange
and suspicious. Add to it the slightest erotic dimension and the consequences can be calamitous. Taboos are irrational and
so are the punishments inflicted by the societies that hold them. In the United States, the manufactured fear and aversion
to man/boy love has exploded to unbelievable proportions. Police agencies, no longer finding "victims," are busy entrapping
boy lovers by posing themselves as "victims." The scams are conducted almost exclusively on the Internet.
The newest entrapment twist involves enticing individuals into trips abroad. Everyone should be aware that even
planning such a trip with the intention of sexual encounters prohibited in the United States subjects the individual to
Draconian Federal charges. The fact that this legal invention borders on mind control should not fool anyone into thinking
that the law cannot be enforced. Taboos always trump common sense. Not since the Roman Empire have the consequences
of defying the state been as horrendous.
Love is blind and "the love that dare not speak its name" is no exception. We just hope that our warning will shine a light
bright enough to make the blind see the danger in front of their noses.
There is a saying that God looks after children, fools and drunkards. It is unlikely that this is any longer true for those
belonging to the last two categories. Unfortunately, we do get some letters and e-mails from fools. They are always
indistinguishable from police entrappers.
