Talk:Encyclopedia of Homosexuality

From BoyWiki


There are at least two places the Encyclopedia of Homosexuality may be accessed on the Internet: (.PDF files of the encyclopedia, divided into sections.) and The second site claims to be authorized to reproduce it on-line. The contents of the materials on both sites are identical - they were both prepared from the exact same page scans from the encyclopedia (so the .HTML at is the same as the text that you can copy from the williampercy .PDF version). I have already personally confirmed that this is true. Oh, and the articles on Pederasty and Pedophilia are excellent.

I added some citation tags... if you can tell me where you got this info, I will add the references. --Etenne (talk) 16:58, 9 March 2015 (UTC)
I believe that each time I excerpt something, I give give a URL, as in "The source for the above: Isn't that sufficient? User4 (talk) 17:00, 9 March 2015 (UTC)
Several of the sections are preceded by the following statement: "The following material is taken from the Encyclopedia:" User4 (talk) 17:02, 9 March 2015 (UTC)


protests from lesbians led the publisher to withdraw it and cease publishing it.[citation needed] Dynes subsequently said that this was due to "a pressure group of leftist and feminist activists who viewed the Encyclopedia as lacking in political correctness".<sup id="cite_ref-5" class="reference"><a href="#cite_note-5"><span>[</span>5<span>]</span> 5) Wayne R. Dynes, "Why the Encyclopedia of Homosexuality Went Out of Print",

I think that covers all the needed references. User4 (talk) 17:14, 9 March 2015 (UTC)

I stuck this in "REFERENCE: Journal of Homosexuality Volume 21, Issue 4, 1991", but I don't know if it is complete enough to be a reference (and it is not formatted as one).

I see what you mean, the article is now "prettified", and looks much better, much more professional! Could you check that thing I stuck in? I tried to find a "correct" reference, but the Journal of Homosexuality site is behind a paywall, and so that is the best I could do. User4 (talk) 21:29, 9 March 2015 (UTC)
