Christian BoyLove Forum #65415
I disagree with the view that being a BL is like a disability. I can definitely understand that point of view, having once felt that way myself. But my point of view has been evolving over the years alongside my faith and my understanding of myself and others.
I believe pedophilia is a normal, healthy, natural sexual orientation no different from homosexuality and heterosexuality. The problem we face is purely a social one. If it weren't for the social stigma and the incredible pressure society brings to bear against us, we would be able to live out a Christian life alongside our YFs without having to sacrifice the "eros" aspect of our feelings for each other and our sexual urges.
I believe I was born this way because it's the way God intended me to be. I believe society works against God's plans in its misguided war against us and against childhood sexuality in general.
I do not believe that we should be crossing the 'eros' line with anyone below legal age. By that, I mean that we should not only refrain from being sexual, but that we should guard against letting our relationship with any boy become romantic. The risk is too great for both partners. From therapy that will teach the child to consider himself a victim, to the large prison sentence the adult risks receiving, the consequences are just too great.
So, the only practical difference between my view and those who consider their sexuality an affliction is that I believe that those who work towards greater social acceptance of our sexuality are doing God's work.
