What exactly is the best way forward for the minor attracted movement in a world whose hostility seems as unrelenting as ever?
In any radical movement there is a division between the ‘purists’ and the ‘pragmatists’. The purists seek the retention of simple undiluted principles and resist compromises aimed at short-time gain. NAMBLA is an example […]
As we await the publishing of our magazine’s next edition on the 15th of February, let’s go back to April 16, 2006 - when sites were beginning to be censored and this whole thing was about to kick off for real. This post from the now deleted My Silent War pertains to another censored website […]
For just over a year, Uncommon Sense remained the main publication of Newgon.com. It had garnered 59 posts and 424 comments up until this point. Changing pressures on this site lead an administrator to post a forum topic proposing that it be overhauled. There was very little response.
As of today, Uncommon Sense is a blog […]
We can be pretty and popular, but isn’t it better to be critical and vital?
The pretty and popular things will follow, if the critical and vital efforts succeed.
That is the one thing I really like to make clear, whenever the “boring and dry” nature of many of our activities comes up in conversation.
A lot of […]
Yesterday, the UK’s ‘Ministry of Justice’ (do they also have Ministries of Truth, Peace, Love and Plenty?) announced plans to implement new legislation, criminalizing possession of cartoons, drawings and sketches of child erotica.
This announcement follows a ‘public consultation’ last June. The full Report, published yesterday, is available in .pdf format from: http://www.justice.gov.uk/publications/non-photographic-depictions.htm).

On May 5, 2008, the BBC broadcast an edition of ‘Am I normal?’ on the subject of sex, presented by the media-friendly clinical psychologist Tanya Byron. It included an interview with a pedophile; an ‘out’ (but non-practising) girl-lover, who has been bravely campaigning for wider acceptance of child-love and for the abolition of age-of-consent laws […]
…Daniel Lièvre’s rebuttal of AMC’s March 13 article for Absolute Zero (an anti-pedophile organisation).
The article concerned appears to be an attempt to use cherry-picked and unsupported medical literature to (illegitimately) justify the current trend of intense hatred directed towards minor attracted persons - a group, it appears, taxonomically confused with child sex offenders and generalised […]
One of the biggest myths about atheists, is that “we believe in nothing”…
…a statement which could not be more false.
While I can not provide you with any “party line” list of “what atheists believe”, I can tell you that every atheist individual is unique, and holds trust in a variety of things.
I, for one, trust […]
The following is a revised argument for Debate Guide. I would appreciate feedback on how it compares to the previous version (sexual character of humanity), and any possible improvements to be made.
We, as humans are highly capable of separating the act of mating from sexuality itself. With our long life cycles and complex […]
I have moved Debate Guide from its on-site location to its own domain, at debate-guide.com.
For site administrators, the ftp details remain the same (simply insert [username]debateguide into the user field, instead of [username]newgon).
Debate Guide remains an umbrella project of Newgon.com (the organisation, as opposed to the website), and I encourage all interested parties to take […]
