Is it in dispute that NAMBLA wants to lower the age of consent, or abolish the laws altogether? Why is this being hidden? Wanker (talk) 12:44, 22 May 2015 (UTC)

I don't think that is in dispute as they have already made statements that is not part of their current agenda, however I have asked Eric to clarify http://www.boychat.org/messages/1440462.htm. --Etenne (talk) 13:27, 22 May 2015 (UTC)

Here is a statement found today on NAMBLA's Web site (http://nambla.org/faq.html):

Opposing age-of-consent laws is not our only focus; it is one part of our broader criticism of North American social and legal practices. We believe that these laws do great harm to people and relationships that do not deserve to feel the crushing weight of the heavy hand of the law. Just as important, age-of-consent laws do not adequately protect young people. They have often been applied arbitrarily and unjustly, and have long been used to terrorize gay males. Gay youth in particular have been targets of extreme persecution through the selective application of age-of-consent laws.
