Larry wrote to SOL Research about the case of Andrew Goodman, a young man on trial in New York for a sexual relationship with two boys. In his first e-mail, he explained why he was writing:

Why do I care? Well, it was by chance I found his story.

But I actively pursued male lovers from the age of 7 or 8. I really liked older men but none would have me. Because I desired them so deeply and know they desired me, and looking at past cultures, I don’t believe it’s absolutely wrong.

I believe manipulation is wrong. I believe hero worship is wrong. I believe forcing someone through intimidation, physical force, and/or playing their insecurities to be wrong.

But in another world, if people were open and it could be known by parents and all on the up n up, I think it’s POSSIBLE to work.

When I was 15, I finagled with a 23 year old and a 28 year old. At the time I thought the 23 year old was so much older. But now I see a 23 year old male is a lost child inside and not much different than I was at 15. I did give him a lot of power but he didn’t know that. He had his own insecurities going on.

I digress. Forgive me if I’m sporadic. I loathe this culture. I loathe injustice.
