Ginsberg OPENLY boasted of molesting little boys.

"Ginsberg OPENLY boasted of molesting little boys."

One less pedophile. The world is a better place as a result.

Really? I didn’t know. I knew he was gay, of course.

God forgive me but I hope he suffered with uncontrollable pain for a very long time.

At the risk of offending a few - good; the more of that sort who do us the favor of finally, and irretrievably leaving, the better.

I have read about Ginsbeg’s escapades with 19 year olds in Prague in 1965 . Homosexuality was quite legal there at that time . Have you other info ?

Just the first example:

Along the same vein, The Harvard Gay and Lesbian Review interviewed poet Allen Ginsberg, a homosexual pedophile, shortly before his recent death. In a generally flattering article, they report Ginsburg's philosophy (not mentioned by the mainstream press) about sex with children, and offer no judgmental comment about it. The article is entitled, "The Liberation is the Word" (Summer 1997):

(Allen Ginsberg): "Like the whole labeling of pedophiles as 'child molesters.' Everybody likes little kids. All you've got to do is walk through the Vatican and see all the little statues of little prepubescents, pubescents, and postpubescents. Naked kids have been a staple of delight for centuries, for both parents and onlookers. So to label pedophilia as criminal is ridiculous."

Got kids in college? Ask them about Ginsburg. Even money he is a required read. Ask yourself WHY?

This article is about the death of Peter Orlovsky, not his partner Allen Ginsberg. Is there any evidence of Orlovsky himself being a pedophile?

No clue. Little question that his paramour was though.

A lot of the Beats have lived surprisingly long lives. Gary Snyder, Michael McClure, and Lawrence Ferlinghetti are still with us. Ferlinghetti is in his 90’s — pretty remarkable under the circumstances.

He was freinds with one. What else do you need to know. Follow the trail.

I am very glad they were gay. That way they would not reproduce.

“Orlovsky taught at Naropa University’s Jack Kerouac School of Disembodied Poetics, founded by Ginsberg and Anne Waldman in 1974.”

Some lines just say it all!
