What distinguishes these men from the general population is that they were born with a tendency to be attracted to boys in an emotional, spiritual, and sexual way. Most of them were aware of their attraction to other boys and men even before they reached their teens. Some were able to act on these feelings, others were repressed. As they grew older and learned more about the world they lived in, they came to realize that what was a natural, wholesome, pleasant experience for them was a source of shame and hatred in this alien society. Since the love of boys is an integral part of themselves, these men tend to find jobs or hobbies which allow them to be around boys. Some of these caring, loving, men are able to completely hide and suppress the sexual aspect of their personality, others, after careful consideration of the circumstances, and counseling with a boy who seeks a sexual liaison with them, may decide to go along with the boy's request
