Coming OUT Booklet
Steps to FREEDOM
Key points are as FOLLOWS
KNOW THYSELF : Accept your own sexuality first. There is no cure for your basic, natural sexual orientation.
EMBRACE THYSELF: Embrace your sexuality as the beautiful and NATURAL form that is as the basis of your life erotic focus.
LEARN THYSELF: Sex is not evil. It is the biological function which serves as the natural state of existence and certainly a NEED in terms of human emotion and mental stability. The joy that is a learning in human emotion, passion ( EROS ) that all human beings deserve. No one sexuality is better than any other and each entitled to the same equal consideration and respect in all matters as a human requirement regardless of population percentage. Each entitled to their existence as a part of human nature. As entities in a dimension afloat many in this our dimension. Sex is no different from any other in terms of the entire human make-up that is the flesh.
LEARN THY HISTORY: Understand that Boy-love is a distinct bond that exists between males and always shall as it has always been. Discover your past as history does repeat itself and try to ensure only the positive aspects proceed forward in the cycle of time.
DISCOVER THY COMMUNITY: Explore the present culture and politics of your erotic existence. By joining the North American Man/Boy Love Association you have taken that first brave step of complete individuation and turned towards the point of contentment.
KNOW THY STRENGTHS: Understand that for some this will be a very stressful experience and that no individuals will be exactly alike. Be cautious about it. You do not have to make it an issue at all times. Be prepared to defend your position if it becomes an issue but realize that even with your new found pride there are many who would rather not be told and if they like you and are tolerant friends it is sometimes best to leave the relationships as they are. Deal with it in the best natural way possible as it is good to face and overcome obstacles as a growth experience and that leads also to contentment.
Understand that by deciding to come-out as a Boy-lover you will be exposing yourself to potential hostility from some you know as well as complete strangers. You must have within you the inner strength to realize that the vision of the world we share is a utopia that is not shared by many. Realize that most of those who spew the most virulent hatred are most likely of a far lower intellect and they are sheep following the wrong shepherd. By coming out you enable yourself to leave that great mass and be a leader/shepherd for your brothers who are too afraid to speak for themselves.
Realize that those who attack you really do not know you at all. They believe in lies fed to them through the hostile MEDIA which is in itself guided by the unsympathetic political atmosphere we live in at present. Hiding will not change anything. These people who wish us not to exist have no desire to seek the truth. They fear the fact that a release of their taboos is also a release of power. An empowerment of the youth is something that must take place sooner or later.
SO NOW YOU DECIDE TO COME-OUT
Once you have established secure footing on that ground of your life – this will serve as the platform for your growth. – Only upon a secure ground should you consider coming-out. Think on how you will introduce the topic. Each person may be different. Just approach it as a natural part of your life that you fully accept. Do not make a big fuss over it. Decide how the topic could/should be introduced to certain close, open minded family members.
Why come-out at all?
It is difficult to know what we seek in terms of HUMANITY – we are all fallible – yet it is difficult to find what you seek without meeting people. To retreat into a world of fantasy is to avoid being HUMAN. It is easy to regard those different from us as less than HUMAN when they are invisible. People think that they HIDE out of shame and fear because of what they are. You have no reason to be ashamed of loving BOYS. It is our ability to love and bond with youth – NEEDED now in this culture – that places upon us the responsibility to ourselves to be known. To replace that DEMONIC face the media would have us wear with a HUMAN one. It is because we upset such strongly felt beliefs that we pose so great a threat when we decide to reveal ourselves as the often likable people we are. When we do this we challenge the portrayal the media would have the majority of the public believe. They will deny us allies and the liberation of youth together. Ask yourself this – if not you than who shall be the motivator for change? – Will you remain in the shadows while others serve as the catalyst towards a new level of Civilization?
Remember that your life will change when you reveal yourself to the world. It is indeed a responsibility as people will look to you and they will judge you as they will all of your brothers. Despite this it is better to live openly and honestly because you are being true. To accept and embrace yourself is to encourage others to do the same. To question all that they read and to think on the HUMAN FACE that is a reflection of us all. Demand an end to those who would treat as as animals deserving of no compassion. Be strong before you take this role upon your shoulders. Follow all the steps first before you decide. There is no turning back.
