I understand that the LGBT community encompasses a diverse range of sexual tastes, including young men who are attracted to older men and older men who are attracted to younger men. All I'm saying is I think in this day and age, of sexual predators and lousy parents and the Internet making sexual encounters far easier for teens, that having sex with guys in their late teens and early twenties carries a little added responsibility of making sure they're legal. If you don't do the research and you wind up breaking the law, don't come crying to us that it's not your fault.Also, I will point out that guys having sex with kids in their mid-teens are not pedophiles, they're ephebophiles.
It's not about you knowing what you're doing or not.
The reason this is more common among gay teens is loneliness which is exploited by those who are much older and aware of that fact.
It's like a fox stumbling across a bunch of newborn baby chicks.
Gay teens in high school don't get to experience the things straight teens do so they're socially under-developed, that doesn't give full grown adults the right to swoop in and exploit it.
We literally age more slowly socially as gay men and women because most of us don't get to start dating, having sex, and exploring who we are until our 20s, 30s, or even 40s.
So why should the teen be blamed? Raging hormones, no outlet, and probably no one to talk to.
The reason some guys go straight for the newbies is because they know they can land a hottie with the six pack who would never look at them twice even a few years later in life. It's not a secret, but it is pathetic, and in some cases like the article…illegal.
Despite the fact that most pedophiles identify as heterosexual, the conservative, anti-gay community has actively tried to pin it entirely on the gay community, and people defending this pervert in any way should be condemned and discredited by the LGBT commuity to show we clean up our shit even when the breeders and Catholic Church turn the other way.
Any time one of the parties is an older adult, i.e over 30, and the
other is underage, i.e. less than 18, in my opinion the adult is a
p[redator and should be charged and arrested. There is enough bad press
in the gay community without having to accept/challenge/defend any
adult gay person taking advantage of some kid under 18.
Wake up folks use one head or the other but leave "children" to be with "children" and NOT pedophile or ephebophile adults.
Pedophiles aren't homosexual, hetrosexual, etc ... their sexual
attraction is based on age. Do "peds" seek a community that will remain
silent to what they are doing?
Not a homosexual act: http://psychology.ucdavis.edu/rainbow/html/facts_molestation.html
Age of consent in Canada is also dependent on exploitation: http://www.justice.gc.ca/eng/dept-min/clp/faq.html . Exceptions are peer groups (within 2 - 5 year age difference).

Coming Out Can reduce Sexual Prejudice: Heterosexuals with personal contact to lesbians and gays have more positive feelings toward Lesbians and Gay men according to a survey done by the University of California at Davis. Here is the URL for that article (http://psychology.ucdavis.edu/rainbow/html/comeout1.html this will open in it's own window).
This is not to suggest that people
should come out if they fear for their safety but it is a heads up not
to allow fear mongering and scare tactics to achieve the purpose that
some homophobics want ... to scare us deeper into the closet!
