A 5-Year Comparative Analysis of Classified Advertisements in
Two Mainstream Magazines: .
Male Heterosexuals (The Washingtonian) and Male Homosexuals (The Advocate)
This report is an empirical analysis of partner solicitation language (characteristics and outcomes
desired) reflected in the Washingtnnian, illustrating a mainstream heterosexual readership. and The
Advocate, illustrating a mainstream homosexual readership. A representative random sample of
male personal classified advertisements was used covering a five-year period for both magazines.
After two years of pre-testing, a uniform language coding instrumeot was designed for common use
on both samples. The resulting data on 10,292 solicitations (7,407 Advocates and 2,885
Washingtonians) were then systematically coded by language variables to test the frequency of
common characteristics and outcomes sought by each male population. The research objective ~ - a s
to compare male partner solicitation language of two male lifestyles to reveal whether the
characteristics and outcomes sought had any measurable similarity.
1) 86% of Washingtonians Seeking time commitment in partner
2% of Advocates
2) 49% of Washingtonians Seelcing nonsexual interests in partner
3% of Advocates
3) 42% of Washingtonians Seelcing nonsexual characteristics in a partner
4% of Advocates
4) 5% of Washingtonians Seelcing sexual prostitution
63% of Advocates
5) 0.41% of Washingtonians Seelcing sexual sadism in partner
25% of Advocates
6) 0.42% of Washingtonians Seeking sexual body parts in partner
22% of Advocates
7) 0% of Washingtonians Seeking man-teen sex in partner
15% of Advocates
What is revealed in comparing and contrasting these two male populations, is that ooe population
seeks time-bound relationships without sex as a reqUirement while the other seeks non-time bound,
temporary relations, with sex the criteria for meeting. "Time" is an asset, a precious commodity
which can be given or withheld. Hence, as there is a funadmental difference between heterosexual
and homosexual approaches to time commitment, this is n:fh::cted in the nature of the
characteristics sought and outcomes expected in partners regarding; the sharing of nonsexual
interests, qualities of character, prostitution, views of sexual sadism or body build or sex with
youths. There existed no measurable similarity between the two lifestyles as represented by
partner solicitation characterics of the sample male populations.
BACKGROUND. Research on homosexuality has been severely limited in academia over the
past 30 years. Dr. Alfred Kinsey's 1948 work, Sexual Behavior in the Human Male, 1 is still the
most significant study of sexual conduct referred to by activists and policy-makers alike. The
absence of unbiased academic study to better understand the nature of homosexuality is a barrier
against rational policy making.
RESEARCH PROBLEM. To identify and compare partner solicitation characteristics and
relationship outcomes of mainstream heterosexual and homosexual populations.
METHOD OF ANALYSIS. A frequently used research technique for the analysis of mass
media infonnation is content analysis. Content analysis does not employ surveyor interview
instruments to measure similarity and variance of an experimental treatment. Rather, content
analysis takes an identified data set as it exists and extracts the reoccurring themes for tabulation.
Like other research techniques, content analysis has predictive value. As a result of its successful
use in World War II to predict enemy movements, content analysis has enjoyed wide usage in
research and analysis (Krippendorff 1980; Laswell et aI., 1965).
DATA SET CHARACTERISTICS. This research employed a five-year random sample
of 10,292 paid partner solicitation advertisements within two mainstream publications; 7,407
solicitations of The Advocate (the nation's mainstream homosexual magazine) and 2,885
solicitations of the Washingtonian (a monthly mainstream regional heterosexual magazine).
Market research finds The Advocate and Washingtonian demographics similar across aU key
socio-econornic variables for single white, upscale, cosmopolitan, politically active and liberal male
Both the Washingtonian and The Advocate have dedicated ''In-Search-Of' sections
within each issue where partners are solicited. These partner solicitation sections of magazines
composed the data set.
The strength of the data is in its clarity of purpose. Paid solicitation advertisements give every
reason to assume that the words used, and the intention implied, reflect the advertiser's actual goals
and objectives. If a male is looking for a "companion with a sense of humor," it is likely that is
one quality being sought. If a male is looking for certain physical size characteristics in a partner,
it is likely that is an actual characteristic he is seeking. What the data say they say clearly and with
minimum bias.
LIMITATIONS. Not every reader of either the Washingtonian or The Advocate places a
paid "In-Search-Of' advertisement in their respective publications. Therefore, "In-Search-Oi"
advertisements may not represent the entire readership of these two mainstream publications. The
hypothesis is that there are categories of readership. One group is comprised of those readers who
place "In-Search-Of' advertisements and are likeJy to monitor these advertisement pages routinely.

The Executive Summary
Another group may be those who find the "In-Search-Of' advertisement interesting or entertaining
and therefore monitor it, and who may occasionally answer ads. The last group would be those
who never place an "In-Search-Of" advertisement. and who have no interest in reviewing those
pages of the magazine. It is unlikely that this data set accurately reflects this last group of readers.
RESEARCH MODEL. The concept of "alternative lifestyle" implies a reference. That is,
homosexuality is an alternative to the heterosexual lifestyle as a reference. However, alternative
involves both similarities and differences with its reference point. When you are forced to take an
alternative route, you may take a different road but end up at a common destination. Given that
the hypothesis is that measurements of both male populations of mainstream publications will not
differ significantly in partner solicitation outcomes sought (their destinations).

The Execudve Summary
There is sharp national dispute over similarities and differences on what is common heterosexual and
homosexual conduct. Kirk and Madsen (1989) write that the "sex and love Jives of gays and straights today are
both similar and conventional," and similarly, Thompson (1994) writes that "gay men lead daily lives that are
basically similar to those of heterosexual men." In contrast, says Danneymeyer, "so many homosexuals are
extremely promiscuous" (1989) that society must be protected from what Altman (1982) views positively as
"The Homosexualization of America." The data reported here that are readily available in public magazines,
throw light on this issue as it relates to one important type of sexual conduct, namely, partner solicitation. This
study analyzed Classifieds, "In Search Of' (ISO) advertisements placed by males in two magazines, the
Washingtonian, which is predominantly heterosexual in orientation, and The Advocate, self identified as
homosexual. Both are "upscale" (affluent, educated readers) and share very comparable reader demographics.
We analyzed 2,885 Washingtonian ISO ads and 7,407 The Advocate ISO ads placed from 1988 to 1992. A
random sample of ads were scored for the presence of categories of expressed preferences.
Below are five key
findings about ISO advertising language placed by men.

There were striking differences. For example, one ad category noted time commitment; (such as, "seeking long-teon
companion") in 86% of Washingtonian (J¥) ads but in only 2% of The Advocate (A) ads. For an expressed preference
or interest in non-sex activities the respective figures were 49% (Jl-? and 3% (A) . For certain other solicitations, the
expressed preferences had a markedly different pattern. For example, for solicitation of sexual prostitution, the
respective figures were 5% (J.JQ and 63% (A). For solicitation of sexual sadism, the figures were 0.41 % (If? and 25%
(A) and for apparent solicitation by adults of teen sex, the figures were 0.45o/O(Jl-? and 15% (A). Thus the
heterosexual and the homosexual males expressed very different preferences in these ads and used very different
solicitation language. The striking differences found in this study suggest that it may be worthwhile to study other
forms of media solicitation for differences in language and expressed preference in relation to sexual orientation.
KEY WORDS: Homosexuality, heterosexuality, language, time, sexual orientation, human seXUality.

Section I: BBckground and Corroborative Research 5
In trod uction
This study is about the use of words, which express intentions of two male populations who paid
to solicit partners in their respective magazines. One of the populations is heterosexual and the
other homosexual. The analysis of the 10,929 advertisements (7,404 Advocates and 2,885
Washingtonians) sheds light on lifestyle characteristics. The data set was drawn from five years
(1988-1992) of two mainstream publications: The Advocate
and the Washingtonian
Both of
the periodicals allot portions of each issue for paid advertisements for those seeking partners.
Using content analysis techniques,the ads were coded, grouped, and analyzed to reveal the
similarity and variance. The data are a matter of public record and can be replicated at any time.
The use of the word "alternative" may be an issue. Webster defines alternative as a choice
between two, "one of two possibilities." It would be expected that partner solicitation outcomes
from a mainstream publication such as The Advocate would support the "alternative lifestyle"
assertion. This study reveals what a largely white upscale sample of homosexual males are In
Search Olin their partners when compared. to the characteristics and outcomes sought by a similar
socio-economic sample of Washingtonian heterosexual male readers.
Implicit in this analysis is that words define experience and therefore their meaning is fundamental
to communication. In 1829, Noah Webster assembled 12,000 new words in the first American
dictionary, "reflecting the common laws, values and virtuous goals of Americans." Said Webster:
As an independent nation, our honor requires us to have a system of our own, in
language as well as govemment .... on account of considerable differences between the
American and English language. New circumstances, new modes of life, new laws, new
ideas oj various kinds give rise to new words .... Some new words are introduced in
America ... it is desirable that as jar as the people have the same things and the same
ideas, the words to express them should remain the same ... .A national language is a
band oj national union ... Let us ... establish a national language, as well as a national
It is an historical fact that single men and women have for many reasons turned to personal
advertisements in magazines and newspapers to seek partners (DeCecco 1988, Silverstein 1981,
Davidson, 1991). A study of such advertisements provides a unique opportunity to analyze partner
seeking language in order to better understand orientation, method of commwlication, and
objectives of those soliciting partners.
Review of Literature
The study of The Advocate In Search 0/ (ISO) classified advertisements has been a part of
established homosexual academic cosmology. Writing in Gay Relah"onships,-4 Malcolm Lumby
reported, based on his research, that content analysis of The Advocate ISO advertisements provides
a window through which one can view 'white, upscale male homosexual cultural values.'
However, he points out that such analysis sheds little light on female homosexuals.
Section I: Background and Corroborative Research
The study is important because the advertisements were written by homosexuals
themselves, reflecting their particular sexual concerns. interests, and values. By
tabulating their dominant interests, one is able to draw advertiser profiles and to note
those values emphasized most frequently and those of little overall import. j
Lumby described the methodology employed in his analysis of The Advocate to establish a profile
of male homosexual virtues:
... 1976 issues of The Advocate were selected at random and each word categorized to
identify 17 dominant themes in the "Jvlodels, }.,[asseurs. and Escorts" (J.dJviE)
[prostitution} and "Personals" (PER) portions of the "Trader Dick" supplement.
Categories were determined in a pilot study of Advocate advertisemen/s. Thefrequency
of each word was recorded and tabulated by percentage as reported. .... A composite
reliability coefficient of. 89 was achieved between raters (Hotsli, 1969) ... 6

"gay"-looking or acting in his sample of The Advocate.
Of iJI{lSf' JvJJvfE [Models. Masseurs and Escorts-i.e., prostitutes] describing physical

Section 1: Background and Corroborative Research
Researcher, John Alan Lee, attributes the desire for men with a "straight appearance" to the
increasing "virilization" of the homosexual subculture.
He reported that 45% ofrus The Advocate
sample sought men with a "Straight or masculine appearance"IO with "straight" and "masculine",
viewed as the same. The Advocate reporter and homosexual activist, John HWlter, in The Gay
Outsider says:
I also agree with Morris that the machismo manifestation as represented by the superbutch
image of the leathermen, the bikers, will enlist greater and greater numbers ... by setting
themselves up as heroes to be aped ... /rying to be straight or appear straight. JJ
In another study, researchers Laner and Kamel hypothesized that "Homosexual Male"
advertisements will show evidence of "virilization" [straight, macho emphasis].12 This virilization
emphasis is confirmed both in the homosexual advocacy studies and the general homosexual
literature (Herdt, 1989; Altman, 1982; Noebel, 1984; Tinunons, 1990), and reflected in Laner and
Kamel's data below. Say Laner and Kamel, "Forty-three percent of the advertisers claimed some
form of stereotypically masculine attributes (e.g. masculine, straight-looking. etc.) and 63% desired
the same masculine attributes in a partner" (p. 81)13

Writing about The Advocate ads in Gay Relationships, Lumby was interested in the differences
between the way prostitution ads were worded versus solicitations which appeared not to involve
payment. 16 MME a[ that time referred to "Models, Masseurs and Escorts" and PER to
"Personals." Lumby writes'
Sexual roles were indicated in 20 (18%) of the 110 lvlAfE references and in 96 (23%) of
4}6 PER listings. These were in two groups: French (oral copulation) or Greek (anal
copulation) and active or passive. For example, some said they were French active,
Greek passive, and/or combinations thereof Others called themselves top or bottom
Sample Characteristics
Both The Advocate and Washingtonian are respected news magazines, The WashIngtOnian
magazine, established in Washington, D.C., has operated successfully since 1965. The magazine
delivers national and local news, art, politics, self-improvement articles, and investigative
journalism. It also displays major, full-page, full color advertisements for furs, perftunes, fashion,
the theater season, and liquors.
Section 1: Background and Corroborative Research
With the exception of sexual preference, Washingtonian males are reflective of a similar socio-
economic readership to that of The Advocate homosexual sample. The Washingtonian, like The
Advocate, is a respectable, cosmopolitan upscale magazine with a dedicated "In-Search-Of" (ISO)
section within every issue. After screening for only male ISO's, the percentage of the
Washingtonian's male (166,J92) paid circulation is roughly to that of The Advocate's
male readership. The Washingtonian's male partner-seeking population is a liberal, urban, white,
affluent, and heterosexual.

The ISO section of the Washingtonian is placed at the back of the magazine usually between pages
185 to 200. In contrast, The Advocate ISO's from 1972-1992 were in the middle of the magazine
with the average nwnber of pages being ooe-third to one-hatf of the total magazine.
I The Advocate is the largest. longest-selling and most respectable "Gay & Lesbian News Magazine" in the USA.
Kirk & Madsen (After The Bail. New York: Doubleday, 1989) report that generative (heterosexuals)
misunderstand "gay sex" for "gay personals" are they say, "encrypted" words. "We and our friends have placcd
many such [personal J ads over- the years" (:28).

characteristics similar to that of The Advocate. 44% of Washingtonian males claiming to be over age 40 compared
to 18% of The Advocate males.

Section II: R e s ~ c h Methods
The data set of 10,292 partner solicitation advertisements (ISO) is a significant random sample
sparmiog five years (1988-1992) within two mainstream publications: The Advocate and The
Washingtonian. Each ISO reflects intent and purpose, and therefore may provide an indication of
lifestyle characteristics.
An alternative lifestyle should have a similar endstate to the reference which defines it. Therefore,
the hypothesis is that the outcomes sought in partner solicitation between both heterosexual and
homosexual populations will have some degree of commonality.
Research Problem
The research problem was to identify and compare partner solicitation characteristics and
outcomes sought of mainstream male heterosexual and homosexual populations. TIle analysis is
assumed to confirm the homosexual lifestyle as a reasonable "alternative" to heterosexual life.

Content AnaJysis (CA) Methodology
Of the different research techniques for the analysis of mass media information, content analysis is
often used, as a method of investigation. Content analysis does not employ surveyor interview
instruments or an experimental treatment method where change is measured on a given sample.
Rather, content analysis takes an identified data set "as it exists" in the research population,
without treatment, and separates the recurring themes for tabulation. Klaus Krippendorff says in
Content Analysis: An Introduction To Its Methodology (1980): "In mass communication
research, three indices of measurement have had a long history of use."
The frequency with which a symbol, idea or subject matter occurs in a stream of messages tends
to be interpreted as a measure of importance, attention, or emphasis.
The balance in numbers of favorable and unfavorable attributes of a symbol, idea, or subject
matter tends to be interpreted as a measure of the direction or bias.
The kind of qualifications and associations expressed toward a symbol, idea, or subject mailer
tends to be interpreted as a measure of the intensity or strength of a belief, conviction, or
motivation. I
The technique used in this research is Krippendorffs approach with "emphasis on single words, or
short strings of characters, which are identified in a text, removed from the their linguistic
environment, individually classified or 'tagged' and then cOWlted".2 As Ray Birdwhistell
addressed in Kinetics and Context, (1969) the nature of analysis of words "offers objective
measures, [to analyze} derived systems, jobs, games, folklore, dances, drama as controlled
laboratories for the measurement o/the participants. ,,3
Like other research techniques, content analysis is a predictive tool. That is, if the condition of the
data set remains relatively constant, content analysis has a predictive value in estimating future
conduct or affect. Ever since the content analysis technique was used successfully in World War II
to predict enemy movements, its use in all forms of analysis has enjoyed widespread application.
As Kippendorff writes:
The FCC analysts successfully predicted several major military and political
campaigns, assessed NCJ2i-elite perceptions of their situation, political changes within
the governing group, and shifts in relations between axis countries. Among the more
outstanding predictions actually made by British analysts was the date of deployment
of the German V-weapon against Great Britain. lvfonitoring Goebbels's speeches, the
analyst inferred interferences with the production of these weapons and ertrapolated
the launching date which was accurate within a f ~ weeks. 4
To this end, much of the effort of researchers in content analysis has centered upon those media
which would influence large populations (e,g. newspapers, television, radio programs ... ). Special
interest has been centered upon the materials which might be weighted by racist, sexist, or
ethnocentric bias. Just as the Washingtonian ISOs reflect a heterosexual bias, The Advocate
ISOs are weighted by a male homosexual bias.
Section II: Research Methods
Standard practice in scholarly analysis of media content has been to investigate media materials
that command the largest circulation and respect within a given genre as well as those materials
that have similarities in audience, content, and purpose. Conent Analysis, (CA) techniques have
been implemented to examine a myriad of information delivery systems. Modern research has
applied CA techniques to nearly all media delivery systems as in prime-time television drama
(Cantor, 1980, 1982); television opera (Cantor and Pingreee, 1983); cinema (Rosen, 1973);
magazine fiction (Cantor and Jones, 1983); textbook humor (Bryant, Gula, and Zillmann, 1980);
advertisement (Goffinan, 1976); fine art (Harris and NochJin, 1978); popular music (Rosenbaum
and Prinsky, 1986), political cartoons (Zillmann and Bryant, 1974), and the like.
Researchers use CA to examine ethnocentric bias and racism in teacher's training manuals,
textbooks, films, and other educational materials (e.g., Allen, 197 1, Lang and Kelley, 197 I;
Simms, 1976). Other researchers in the field of education applied content analysis techniques to an
examination of textbook sex bias (e.g., American Psychological Association, 1975; Helgeson,
1976; Pyle, 1976; Women on Words and Images, 1975). Said Krippendorff:
Content analysis is a research technique for making replicable and valid references
from data to their context. As a research technique, content analysis involves
specialized procedures for processing scientific data. Like all research techniques, its
purpose is la provide knowledge, new insights, a representation of 'facts,' and a
practical gUide to action. It is a tool. .. a method of inquiry into the symbolic meaning of
messages (pp. 21-22).
Krippendorff (1980) emphasizes the predictive value of content analysis:
As early as 1943, Janis (1965) pointed to the need for validating the results of content
analysis of mass communications by relating them to audience perceptions or 10
behavioral effect. We, too, demand content analysis to be predictive of something that
is observable in principle, to aid decision making, or to help conceptualize that portion
of reality that gave rise to the analyzed test. To this end, we suggest that any content
analysis must be performed relative to and justified in terms of the context of the data. "
(p. 23).
In 1974, Dr. David Phillips suggested a rise in suicides due to the influence of suicide stories
publicized in newspapers in Great Britain and the United States. Several years later, Phillips
(1979) followed up with additional CA work in the area of suicide and motor vehicle fatalities,
identifying a correlation with mass media influence. By 1980, Phillips had established a body of
data isolating mass media influence as a contributing agent to accidents and homicides, and in
1983, he continued to point to mass media content as stimulating increased levels of homicides. In
all of his research, Phillips' underlying methodology had been the employment of content analysis
in various mass media forms to discover the presence of media stimuli as a predictive contributing
agent to subsequent individual and societal trauma.
Content analysis has also been implemented in the investigation of alcohol advertisements. This
body of research has included the examination of alcohol advertisements in general (Jacobson,
Atkins and Hacker, 1983, Reisman 1989); college newspapers in particular (DeFoe and Breed,
1979; Walfish, et aL, 1981). Winich's 1981 research examined alcohol depiction in the general
media (drama, movies, fiction, biographies, newspapers, magazines, television, popular music, and
jokes). The consensus of the research has been that alcohol-related advertising promotes alcohol
consumption but it does not appear to have promoted responsible alcohol use.
Section 11: Research Methods
Cartoons and comic strips have been a well studied media form for CA. Analyses have included
the study of Sunday comics (Barcus, 1963); the comic strip as a subculture (Spiegelman,
Terwilliger, and Fearing, 1953); male-female relationships in comic strips (Saenger, 1955); the
changing role of women in patriotic cartoons (Meyer, Seidler, Curry, and Aveni, 1980); libelous
cartoons of women by women (Mitchell, 19& 1); comic strips in Black newspapers (Stevens, 1976);
comic books and juvenile delinquency (Hoult, 1949); politically biased cartoons focusing on the
McCormick era (Rothman and Olmsted, 1966); and newspaper editorial bias during the 1976
election (Hill, 1978).
On occasion, CA has also been used to examine various cartoon and visual themes in
erotica/pornography. Malamuth and Spinner (1980) examined cartoon and visual sexual violence
in Playboy and Penthouse; Reisman, Elman and Fink (1986) identified the sexual exploitation of
patients by health professionals in Playboy cartoons (1986); Greenberg and Ka1m's (1970)
research analyzed depictions of Blacks in Playboy cartoons; and The Center for Media Awareness
and National Institute for Media Education and Research (1983) reviewed the sexual and violent
content of Playboy, Penthouse Hustler, Qui, and Playgirl. CA was .used as the research technique
of choice by the principal investigator, Reisman (1987, 1990), in her Department of Justice, Office
of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention research on: "images of Children, Crime, and
Violence in Playboy, Penthouse, and Hustler ".6
Analysis Approach
Krippendorff, (1980) defines six major issues involved in the application of the CA technique:
• the data as communicated to the analyst
• the contex/ of the data
• how the analyst's knowledge partitions his (or her) reality
• the target ofa content analysis
• inference as the basic intellectual task
• validity as ultimate criteria of success (p. 26)
Based upon the above framework, the data Wlder study can be described as "Partner Solicitation
as a Reflection of Male Sexual Orientation." The source of the data are The Advocate, the
mainstream homosexual magazine, and the Washingtonian, a mainstream regional heterosexual
magazine. The target of the analysis would be to study homosexual conduct as an alternative to
heterosexual conduct. The validity of inferences drawn from the data on the similarity or
dissimilarity of homosexuality and heterosexuality, would be based on multidisciplinary theory,
internal checks (Inter-Rater Reliability), and research replication.
This research on partner solicitation employed the principles of content analysis defined above to
the population affected by the magazines studied. No treatment was applied to the data. set. No
face-to-face interview or mailed surveys were employed. Rather, a five year random sample of
10,292 paid partner solicitations advertisements within two mainstream publications constituted
the data source. The data set is public record and can be duplicated at anytime, by anyone.
Section II: Research Methods
Data Characteristics
Single men and women have different reasons to tum to personal advertisements in magazines and
newspapers (e.g., DeCecco, 1988; Kirk and Madsen, 1989) to seek a companion, date, or even a
partner for life. TIle comparison study of The Advocate and the Washingtonian (1988-1992),
provides an opportunity to better understand male methods of communication and their objectives
in partner solicitation. Understanding what each seeks and the method and language used is a
window to comparing orientations-both in similarity and variance.
This research employed a five-year random sample of 10,292 paid partner solicitation
advertisements. These data represent statistically significant random samples of two mainstream
monthly publications: the Washingtonian (a mainstream regional heterosexual magazine) and The
Advocate (a mainstream national homosexual magazine). The Advocate, a national publication,
has been described as the homosexual equivalent of Newsweek, perhaps reaching 50 percent or
more of adult male homosexuals in America. Although no magazine is exactly like The Advocate,
the Washingtonian posscsses a very similar socio-economic male readership for white, upscale,
wealthy, cosmopolitan, politically active and liberal heterosexuals. Both the Washingtonian and
The Advocate, have dedicated "In-Search-Of' sections within each issue where partners are
The strength of the data are in their purpose. The solicitation advertisements are paid for
individually and there is reason to believe that the words used, and the intentions implied, reflect
the advertiser's actual goals and objectives. For example, if a male is looking for an "attractive
female companion with a sense of humor," it is very likely that those are qualities being sought. If
a male is looking for another male with certain physical characteristics, it is quite likely that those
characteristics are exactly what he wants. What the data set says, it says clearly and with
minimum bias.
Not every reader of either the Washingtonian or The Advocate places a paid "In-$earch-Of'
advertisement in their respective publications. Therefore it is inaccurate to state that those who
pay for ''In-Search-Of' advertisements represent the entire readership of the magazine. An
hypothesis is that there are three categories of readership. The first group is comprised of those
readers who at one time or another place an "Tn-Search-Of' advertisement and are likely to monitor
these advertisement pages routinely. The second group is made up of those who never pJaced an
"In-Search-Of' advertisement, yet find that section of the magazine interesting and therefore
monitor it routinely, perhaps even answering ads. The third group would be those who have never
placed an "In-Seareh-Of' advertisement and who have no interest at all in t h u ~ t : pages of the
magazine. Given such grounds, the data set is most reflective of the first group. Due to the nature
of shared readership ideology (and, The Advocate data cites 77% of their readers pursuing the
c1assifieds) this data set may still reflect the last two groups, but not to the same degree.
Section II: Research Methods
• Preliminarv Study: As noted, this comparative analysis is a follow-up to the preliminary
study that reviewed 21 years of The Advocate ISO's. A careful study of a cross section of
homosexual press and publications provided the groundwork for that investigation and
instrument development. To determine The Advocate as mainstream and "typical," required
in-depth examination of the pro-homosexual professional literature, as well as a study of
similar information delivery systems. Othcr popular, high-gloss male homosexual magazines
and newspapers were reviewed for similarity of content. including ISOs in their
advertisements. Among these were: Outweek (New York); Frontiers (California); Outlines
(Chicago); The Washington Blade (Washington, DC); Gay Community News (Boston,
Massachusetts); The Wisconsin Light (Milwaukee. Wisconsin); Bay Windows (New England);
and The Lavender Network (Oregon). The spectrum of professional, pro-homosexual
literature reviewed for this study is cited in the bibliography.
• Instrument: A mainstream heterosexual magazine using ISO ads was selected as a
comparative male sample based upon Marketing Research data on demographic
characteristics. Using standard content analysis methodology a measuring instrument was
designed., tested, refined and reevaluated until the final instrument was completed and applied
to the 21 year Advocate sample. Considering the strengths and limitations uncovered in this
pretest, the instrument was redesigned for use in the 5-year samples of the Washingtonian and
The Advocate magazines.
• Analvsis: Because on the macro level, there are two groups under review in this study (one
homosexual and one heterosexual), an analysis of variance between samples on solicitation
characteristics and outcomes can be measured using the t ~ t e s t and Chi Square statistical
techniques. The null hypothesis for the research is that the two samples have some similarity
in characteristics and outcomes sought from "partner solicitation". A finding of significant
difference between groups would normally lead to a rejection of that null hypothesis.
• Coding: Three female Institute staff aides, over 21 years of age, trained in content analysis
research techniques, participated in the coding process using the single instrument which was
developed and refined from the 21-year pretest. Two analysts coded while a third checked
completed coding sheets for accuracy, consistency, and omission. A single coding instrument
was applied to both samples.
• Inter-Rater Reliabilitv Measurement: The purity of coding The Advocate and The
Washingtonian were tested. for consistency using Inter-Rater Reliability (IRR) measures
across different coders evaluating the same data issues. IRR is not completely W1like the Test-
retest coefficient, the Split-Half test, or the Kroder-Richardson Formula for reliability and
correlation. The IRR produces a number between 0 and l.0, where 0 is no agreement between
coders and + 1.0 is total agreement between coder COWlts of each variable.
Variance between coders occurs for many reasons. Certain variables coded in this research
could include a hunderd code affirmations within a single issue, while others occurred only
once or twice in a given issue. In this case, the IRR measure used a 10% variance threshold.
That is, if coder counts are the same or less than a 10% disparity, then such would constitute
basic agreement. Using the threshold, The Advocate IRR was measured at .7940 (127
variables coded). For The Washingtonian, the IRR was .7879 (l18 variables measured).
Section II: Research Mclhods
• Materials: The time period for the final analysis of both publications was from 1988 to 1992.
Random selected magazines were coded across variables. In the pre-test The Advocate issues
were coded primarily from microfiche at the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C. For
this study, the Washingtonian magazines were stored by the Institute, while The Advocate
issues were photocopied at the University of Louisville, Extrom Library, and then stored by the
The use of words remains an issue. It would be expected that partner solicitation characteristics
from a mainstream news publication would support alternative lifestyle assertions. To that end,
the study reveals how males engage in the presentation of self, what they seek in partners and what
relationship outcomes are characteristic of both heterosexual and bomosexual sample populations.
This study seek to reveal the similarity and difference between male homosexual and heterosexual
partner solicitation language: what they say and what they mean. Understanding the differences in
orientation of these two groups will aid in predicting lifestyle characteristics.

Section III: Demographic Profiles
Marketing companies routinely conduct demographic studies to assess how consumers think, feel
and act in order to best market a product or service through media channels. Demographic
analysis offers a profile of a given population by reporting its vital statistics. Despite differences
that exist in individuals, overall population pictures are developed. and grouped. into demographic
classifications so that advertisements can be targeted to fit the "Psychographic" profile of the
selected group. This is simple cost-effective marketing. Using similar methods we have developed
a profile for the homosexual sample under review.
Just as Advertising Age serves as a national voice for the advertising industry, or Sports
Illustrated for a large population of sports enthusiasts. The Advocate is often referred to as a
mainstream voice for the national homosexual population. I
The Advocate began in 1967 as a regional California newspaper divided into two distinct sections:
Section A of about 30 pages of stories and news, and Section B of about 5 pages of homosexual
personal ISO advertisements. The Advocate grew from a local newspaper to a national
mainstream magazine. Section A became a high-gloss, four-color, biweekly publication, with
roughly 80-90 pages of public policy, art, entertairunent, health, political copy-and full-page ads
that primarily focus on travel, ocean cruises, psychological service centers, real-estate sales, "gay
battles", heath spas, life insurance sales and a plethora of pornographic erotic products.
Section B (knOYlIl as "Trader Dick" for several years post-1975) became a central section of the
publication overall, occupying roughly 35% or more of the total magazine content. The "B"
section was paginated separately and stapled. in two places for removal from the center of the
magazine if desired. Section B could carry over 1,500 graphic advertisements for partners or
partner contact, by phone and/or appointments, well as hundreds of pornographic photos and
movies which, especially pre 1977 child protection laws, generally included sex between men and
By late 1992, Section B was separated from the publication and bound separately into what is now
called The Advocate Classijiecis.
Currently, the Section A part of the magazine can be found in
many larger bookstores, public school libraries, and street newsstands. Part B is usually available
in crossover bookstores, and by subscription; The Advocate Classifieds arrives in the mail
separately from The Advocate, wrapped in dark plastic (See Sample Appendices).
The establishment nature of The Advocate is evidenced by its long-term publication and to some
degree by the collapse other magazines that sought the same mainstream position, such as
Outweek, a New York-based homosexual magazine with a 30,000 circulation. Advertising Age
(which represents mainstream marketing research) in a special report on homosexual magazines
cites The Advocate as sharing common readership with three other homosexual male magazines,
Genre, 10 Percent, and Oul. If Genre, OUI, and 10 Percent share dual readerships with The
Section ITT: Demographic Profiles
Advocate, then the ISO's appearing in The Advocate would be seen to reflect these other
readerships as wel1--indeed encompassing most of the USA homosexual population.

Psychographic data generally cluster around 30 given measures used by market research
organizations to determine strategies to target that total population's interests. The preseot analysis
sought to better understand The Advocate Psychographic profile, a profile arguably reflective of
the generic white, upscale homosexual population. The expensive and validated history of market-
testing, and overall market research-for-profit establishes that readers of a specialized publication
exhibit a general acceptance of the values expressed therein.
Thus its consumers, as addressed in
the January 18, 1993 Advertising Age trade journal, would not only reflect the larger homosexual
leadership--white, affluent, youthful, with academic degrees, politically active, often leaders in the
larger society, but The Advocate consumers would tend to similarly reflect or accept The Advocate
attitudes and conduct. 5
Secondary Reach
An accurate percentage of homosexuals within the total population is important. Within the last
few years, research has estimated the homosexual population at well under 2% of the male
Section III: Demographic Profiles
The Simmons Report oj 1993 gave The Advocate actual sales reach of 215,000
readers per issue or roughly 18% of the homosexual population, and conceivably as much as
another 700,000 readers through casual, episodic, single or dual-issue consumer readership. Both
studies found it difficult to estimate the homosexual population over the age of 50. The number is
so small as compared to heterosexuals over 50 as to be insignificant for statistical analysis. In any
case, given the nature of dual magazine browsing. The Advocate could be said to reach 18% to as
mueh as 50%, or more, of the American male homosexual population. In marketing terms this is a
significant reach for any publication within a special interest popUlation.
Profile Characteristics
The 1.1 % to possibly 2% homosexual population
is over-represented as degreed, (63%) with 27%
masters and doctorates and 56% managers and 14% top managers. Homosexuals are hence highly
represented in positions of academic power, employment., authority and wealth.

8 times more likely to use their Platinum American Express Card;
6.1 times more likely to engage in regular exercise at a private dub.
Market research finds that 94% of all The Advocate readers believe in its advertisements, products

resulting approvals and actiDns by The Advocate readership.

The marketing industry relies on vital statistics such as age, sex, race, education, location, income,
marital status, children in the home, religious and political ties to provide a demographic and
psychographic "picture" of the target population. This work sought The Advocate demographics to
help better understand part of the population under review. This Section touched part of the
marketing demographic and psychographic data available on the male homosexual population.
The data suggests The Advocate ISO are representative of its white, urban, upscale male
readership and possibly the larger homosexual population.

differences between the two populations "statistically significant" so as to rule out randomness as a
viable explanation of the condition? In this case, a t·test and Chi Square show significant
dlfferences exist between the two groups. The statistical tests for significance do not indicate the
cause of the difference, but rather, that the variance measured was likely a result of random error
(within a level of confidence, in this case .005). The reasons for the observed differences must
therefore be explained by other means.
In addition to data collection on specified partner solicitation characteristics and outcomes sought,
descriptive data were gathered. Some contextual findings are presented below (number of pages,
articles, advertisements by type). However the fundamental tool for analysis remained the "In·
Search·Of' (ISO) advertisement for partners; whether seeking women as in the case of
Washingtonian readers, or seeking males as in the case of The Advocate readers. The sample
picture of those who made up the data sets producing the ISO advertisemencs are summarized in
the following Figures. A total of 10,292 male solicitations are represented: 2,885 Washingtonians
and 7,401 Advocates. Both samples denote a random sample of their total popUlations over the 5·
year period of 1988 to 1992.

The data set reveals that differences between the two samples on "language" were significant on
two basic counts: usage and meaning. The examples below illustrates a "language within a
language" being used in The Advocate ISO's. The Advocate language required decoding for
interpretation. Only then could it be adequately compared and contrasted with the ISO's of the
Washingtonian. The regular The Advocate adviser and author, Pat Califia, explained some of The
Advocate coding in her 1993 reply to a reader's letter:
New abbreviations appear all the time, but I can explain what some of the morc cornmon
ones might mean to some people. BB means bodybuilder (or ballbusterJ, IT is tit torture,
C&BT is cock-and-ball torture, FF is fist fucking [hand-anus "sex"l. VIA is verbal abuse,
VIC means uncut (uncircumcised penis], Fr means oral sex (French), Or means anal sex
(Greek), AlP means either active or passive lPenetrate another man or be penetrated
anally], SS means safe sex:, Out only means they will only visit you at your place, In only
means they see clients onJy at their own places, MIF means they see both males and
females, SIM means sadomasochism, and so does Lthl' (leather)." (The Advocate, Pat
Califia, Sex Adviser, March 23,1993).1
Language constructs would normally be a reasonable area of general comparison. However, in this
study the language characteristics of The Washingtonian versus The Advocate solicitation differed
so radically that comparison became immediately dependent on decoded meaning and phrase intent.
The Queens' Vernacular (see Appendix A) served as the tool for The Advocate translation to
English meaning. Examples of solicitation advertisement below illustrate the differences between
ISOs. The solicitor's phone numbers and addresses have been expunged from the original
advertisements .

A composite self description of the Washingtonian sample would be a single, white male, in his
30's, holding a professional job, who describes his hobbies, entertainment interests, and character
qualities, primarily looking for a relationship with one adult woman. A composite self-description
of The Advocate sample would be a single white man in his 20's, who describes himself as sexy,
masculine and primarily interested in short term sexual encounter with a younger male.

More than ninety-four percent
of The Advocates report themselves as single homosexuals, 3% bisexual, 2% homosexual
"couples" seeking a third male for couple sex, while under 1 % identified themselves as straight or

In this study, 54% of The Advocate sample gave their ages. Most of those giving an age were also
engaged in prostitution, hence they claimed to be in their 20s; 17% of the homosexual sample
claimed to be "18+", while The 1994 Advocate Sex Survey indicates that 15% of their respondents

their sexual endowments and desires, 79% reported themselves as sexy/sensuous, 8% intelligent,
6% honest, 3% sensitive, 2% romantic and none funny. Another characteristic of Advocates was
sadistic activity, in 1.329 (27%) of the total 7,407 Advocates.
There was little Washingtonian
data to compare on this issue except that less than just 1 % of Washingtonian men said they had
"dominant" personalities. Sixty-three percent of The Advocates versus 5% of Washingtonians
solicited prostitutes as partners.

Roughly 50% of Washingtonians used a personality adjective to describe the emotional,
psychological attributes they sought in a partner. In order to avoid "double-counting" coders were
instructed to code only the first, primary of these descriptors. The highest Washingtonian
personality feature was "intelligent," which rated above other attributes like "sensitive," "humor"
and "sexy." Advocates emphasized more what they had to offer than what they desired. Advocates
did not seek intelligence, sensitivity, humor, honesty, curiosity, romance, or femininity. The single
highest characteristic among Advocates was for "dominant" personalities.

Phase III Findings: Partner Selection Outcomes
Outcomes sought, or objectives of the relationships, between the two samples differed significantly
and fundamentally. The Washingtonian solicitor collectively sought semi-permanent (friend over
time) to pennanent (marriage) companionship in their solicitations. The differences in outcomes
sought between the heterosexual and homosexual population was dramatic. This was a significant
finding for this research.

and sexual acts, who is interested in locating younger males in with whom to have short-tenn

who said he is "sensitive, intelligent., and funny") is missed.

7 Nor were such interests cited as part of the partnering activity in The 1994 Advocate Survey of Sexuality. That
study claims that 71 % of their readers "prefer long-term monogamous relationships", 87% saying they make "long
term corrurulments" and 80% saying they prefer love to sex, these claims are neither supported by the academic
homose)(U.!![ studies, nor by the Reisman-Johnson research findings, nor are they confumed by the definition of
"long term" provided by The 1994 Advocate Survey of Sexuality itself: ("a year or longer" with 52% engaging in
:ruch monogamy "in either their current or their last relationship," etc. p. 24).
Appendix A: The Queens' Vernacular
The 12,000 published words in The Queens' Vernacular are compared to the key findings of
2,885 heterosexual Washingtonians and 7,407 Advocate, The latter Advocates are oriented to
indiscriminate, condomless, sadistic sex with prostitutes and well endowed men and boys. The
latter, Washingtonians are oriented to bonding, time-bound, condomless relationships excluding
sadism, body dimensions or teenage girls. A test of the l2,000 word homosexual dictionary (Figure
1) yielded proofs of the most-to-least important "gay" words relevant to The Advocate seven
findings. These variables arc: 1) "chicken," sex with boys; 2) "fuck" 3) "cock" (phallic size and
use) 4) prostitution and 5) sadism. No words were found for intelligent, faithful, kind, or those
interested in nonsexual hobbies. The seven variable-"fit" appears below (Figure 2).

Rodgers, like Webster, spent years collecting the 12,000 words, which distinguish his groups'
orientation, its personhood, governance, thoughts and actions, from that which was the dominant

culture. Webster's explanations of how language defInes a culture illuminated. the arguments of
the homosexual culture with supreme authority. Wisely, it seemed incumbent upon the authors to
present these excerpts for the readers careful consideration. Those who prefer to pass Webster by
are, of course, free to do so. He explained:
As an independent nation, our honor requires us to have a system of our own, in
language as well as govemment ... on account of considerable differences between the
American and English language. New circumstances, new modes of life, new laws, new
ideas of various kinds give rise to new words ... Some new words are introduced in
America ... it is desirable that as far as the people have the same things and the same
ideas, the words to express them should remain the same .. A national language is a
hand of national union ... Let us ... establish a national language, as well as a national
In her reprint of Webster's dictionary, Rosalie Slater adds that words like "govern," "government,"
"constitution," "fast-day," "republic," "democracy," and others reflect the uniqueness of the
American constitution, the American sprit. She properly points out, the nation's historical
"Christian founding." Webster clearly identified the role of a culture's unique, experientially
developed words-the language of a particular people--with that of that culture's government, its
laws and public policies.
{Our nation} included a new vocabulary directly related to the American philosophy of
govemment. The Christian concept of individual liberty and property established under
the United States Conslilution had produced, for the first time in history, unlimited
opportunity for every man and woman. An explosion of interest and exploration in
every field occurred and invention and the arts flourished. Every man needed to know
everything and thus a literary, Johnsonian type of dictionary was not sufficient for an
American. New terms in science, industry and commerce were multiplying daily, and
these were Significant in a country where men were independent and masters of their
own persons and Lords of their own soil ... The authority of individuals is always liable
to be called in queslion--but the unanimous consent of a nation ... a language, coeval
and co-extensive with it, are like the common laws of a lane!. (emphasis added)
It is fair to say that the 12,000 words of the homosexual lexicon support Webster's argwnent-- that
language grows among the common people, and that it is the common language which most
accurately describes that groups' belief, their conduct, their hopes, dreams and aspirations. Just as
America was grounded in its "new vocabulary directly related to the American philosophy of
government...[t]he Christian concept of individual liberty and property established under the
Constitution," homosexual governance is grounded in its "new vocabulary directly related to the
[homosexual] philosophy of government. The [homosexual] concept of individual liberty and
property established under the {homosexual] constitution."
Excerpts from the 1972 "homosexual constitution" ("The Gay Rights Platform") are included at
the end of this Appendix. The "Gay Rights" constitution, should be studied and its "fit" compared
to the present critique of the homosexual philosophy of government, liberty and property, (ie:
family, love, law, crime, and the like) expressed in the new homosexual language.
Selected Listings of Tlte Queens' Vernacular
While the sample set of words below, are not exhaustive of the 12,000 Vernacular entries, they are
taxonomic, prototypically expressive of the totality of homosexual "bodily experience" as Gorney
Appendix A: The Queens' Vernacular 40
(1972) pointed out. It is also expressive of a bias as Krippendorff cited (1980), and a
microcultural analysis according to Birdwhistell (1969). This reflect<;, argues Rueda (1982) the

offer their services. If you like you can get in contact with them." [Brazil's massive "throw away"
child popUlation leaves children available for most sexual encounters for a few American coins.] Says
Spartacus: "'Throughout the wond, Rio is known for its elaborate celebrations at CarnivaL.make sure
to book you [sic] hotel room way in advance." The Brazilian homosexual scene, better known to gay
travelers, is made more photogrnphically visible by a book, Carnival in Rio, with text by homosexual
advocate, AJben Goldman:
Arl)endix D: Homosexual Travel Data
The queer ball runs every night of CarnivaLThe queens bridle. make a show of embarrassmenl...1ike
queens. Some of the transvesutes are minor celebrities in their won right...lndeed, the scene
is so startling that even the most worldly-wise are taken aback ... Swarms of queers are rushing about
like buuerllies in gold lame gowns, elabor.ate coiffures. masses of jewelry, makeup think as
plaster, and double rows of oversized eyelashes ... Ot.hers are shockingly bare. Beautiful boys these,
with tit's of delectable contour, lot.a1ly exposed ... the crowd has massed for the compeLition of jan/as/os,
a gross and obscene parody of the great coSlwne shows at the officlaJ balls ... Every step you take, you
are seized and fondled by swift invisible hands ... the queens begin to parade. one by one.
No sooner does the first costumed figure swish into the lights than the crowd is chanting hoarsely-
"Bicha! Bicha! Bichal Putal Pula.! Pulal ("'Fagl "Fag! "Fag! Whore I Whore! Whorel). The more they
shoul, the more the queens take heart. They mince, they strul, they samba. They shout back obscenities
at the crowd ... They come on-stage dressed like little girls rolling hoops or skipping rope. They are
gamins with raked c,aps and knee pants. They are Harlow, Garbo, Lolobrigida. .. When the spectator
haS glutted himself to the point of nausea, he can take one more step down into the homosexual
underworld. He can reach the lowest rung by descending to the fag dance hall par excellence-the
Club Elite.
A seamy little alley packed with young men is the site of the club ... a dense mob of dancing men
obscured in the umber gloom ... Seated at a table is a famous middle-aged Brazilian movie
actor ... consuming the boys before him with his eyes. One impudent lad slips down his pants and
stands revealed in a scanty bikini. The fleshy face of the actor grows taunt.

cry of pain, loneliness, and purest melancholy ... deeply enthralling I could sit here all night.. listening

Carnival there arc memento mori. "reminders of death." Among the most familiar fantasias are
skeletons and hangmen. ghost and devils. A strong strain of morbidity is evident in the grand
costume the sadistic imagery of whips, pitchforks. and chains ... The deeper one penetrates
the soul of Carnival. the more one encounters the specter of death (pp.161-165).

Netherlands: Homosexuality is legal and pedophiles are fully toleJiited with advertisements for their
groups nationwide. In its Winter 1993 issue. Paidika: The Journal of Paedophilia had an extensive
article in which it claimed that the Netherlands had reduced the age of consent from 16 to 12 years:. and
that "not a single voice of protest had been raised in the entire country" (p. 13). Upon investigation., the
Dutch Embassy refuted that claim and said the age of consent remains 16 and Chat only married Arab
immigrants arc allowed to engage in sexual conduct at age 12. At any rate, it is a tact that youngsters
at 16 years of age can and do advertise .themselves as prostitutes both on Dutch streets and in the
regular Dutch press. Spartacus hopes that .....such an atmosphere is possible" globaHy. Amsterdam

L"Taa Out Fee" is cited by the guide book, which allows the homosexual !aurin to pick out the boY be
wants from a bar, where the youths dance, nude and half nude, wearing numbers for the travelers.
Without having to learn their names, the gay tourist may pick out a numbered lad or lads for sex. He
then pays a '-'take out foe" to the bar owner and proceeds 'upstairs to a room for his sexual service. The
boy is often paid roughly S12.00 says Spartaeus (a percentage may be given back to the seller). Hotel
rooms are roughly double the price of sex With a boy,
There is no mention of the infection of these boys with AIDS. except that the boys are all willing to do
anything to. please the homosexual tourist. With the report on gay use of young TIut.i boys in
The Washington Blade, the Washington, D,C. homosexual newspaper, announced in July a massive
estate being constructed in Thailand exclusively to serve ma1e homosexual tourists, suggests a similarly
massive development of Thai boy brothels, '
Appendix D: HomOscnlal Travel Data
United Kingdom: In England raids on public parks, which Spartacus calls "gay parks," are restricting
homosexuals recently from \Ising them as outdoor brothels. A HO"USE WITH BOYS is located in
London., displayed alongside an "R" (prostitution) logo.
United StAtes (If America: Note. in 1993. Washington D.C. lowered its age of" consent to 16 ·(from 18
years) at the same time that sodomy was declared legal. Hence high school boys and girls can be
legally sodomized, etc., by adults. Chi·ldren cannot vote until age 18, the law requires them to attend
school until age 18 and prohibits drinking until age 21 (Washington D.C., Attorney's Office). In New
Jersey the drinking age is 17, driving is 21, voting 18 and unforced sex is criminal only if the victim is
under age 13 and the offender .four years older. (A 12 year old having sex with a 17 year old
apparently would be legal). People are fully aware of the age of consent for drinking. driving and
voting. but seldom do they know what is the age of consent for sex. (New Jersey State Law Library).
While homosexuals open1y campaigned to legalize sodomy, few admit to lobbying to lower age of
consent laws. However. as there has been no "l6-year-old boy lobby" to cause that change, and as
homosexuals (not parents or conservatives) have long advocated lowering age of consent on their
public platform, the lowered age of consent is in concert with any gay, pederast, and pedophile lobby.

For the sake of comparison, another randomly selected "gay travel guide wa.'!l reviewed which
focused on a portion of the world (Best Guide 1989/90; Amsterdam,. The Netherlands) and advertised
on the back cover "Oriental Guys". and provided eover photos of what appear to be young boys. A

Hawaii, Japan and Thailand is I/Ie gay Scene thriving, with venues open 10 offer the gay visitor a
taste of the exotic East. Yet Japan is beset by worries aboui AIDS -and Thailand is beginning to
weary of the antics and excesses of the wer-grtJwing hOl'des of sex tourists (:8).
Burma: There is no gay scene ... If you do contact a local person, deciding where to go is a problem.
Burmese people cannot generally enter hotels reserved for foreigners. and it is also forbidden for a
local person to offer lodgings to aforeign visitor. You will have to depend on your friend 10 -SlIggest

Hong Kong: The law forbidding homosexual activity berween males (but not females) .. .!t provides
for lifo Jor conceptual sodomy, ten years in jail for indecent assault, and two years in
jail/ol' gross indecency ... in late 1985. a 40-year old policeman WQS arrested fol' "an act of gross

less financially demanding; all they may ask for is a small amount of money to pay their

Philippines: Most visitors feel they will be safe from interference if they re£tricl their friendships

The hysteria about child "serual abuse ". generaled in America over the past deCLlde by self-serving
psychiatrisIS, bigoted politicians, and various religious loonies, is an (Nil that has been spreading
across the world, and some of those presently in power in The Philippines have learned quickly that
local unrest about such lopics as government corruption and economic mis·management can be
stilled - even if only temporarily - by creating and stage-managing a mediajesl concerning wicked
foreigners, innocent IDeal "children" and ser.l (:177)
Self serving psychiatriSts, social workers and politidans have turned child prostitution into an
emotional topic that nowadays cannot be discussed ralionally. and homoseruality by ilself has
become almost as sensational, thanks to AIDS. .. Ordinary Filipinos also hlow that the real problems

Childhood sexual abuse: Just over one in five (21 %) of the men say they
were sexually abused by an adult by age 15. According to a national poll,
one in six men in the total population report childhood sexual abuse. Thus,
this group of gay men is close to that statistic and doesn't support the belief
by some that gay men were more likely to have been abused when growing
up. August 23,1994, The Advocate, p. 20.
Moving past The Advocate reasoning for the shocking statistic above, the hard
population data reveal massive boy abuse by homosexual males which would
facilitate homosexuality as well as a myriad of other heterophobic behaviors.
The of homosexual abuse of boys is determined by the numbers of homosexuals
compared to the number of boys abused, as a portion of the overall male
Of 90 million men over 18, and 88,000,000 heterosexual males, 6% to 10% are
estimated as sexually abusing 8 million girls by age 18. What percent of the
under 2 million homosexual males abused 21 % of boys, or 7 million boys by age
15 and 24%, or 8 million boys by age 18?
In her 1990 book, Kinsey, Sex and Fraud, Reisman
provided extensive
documentation to disprove Dr. Alfred Kinsey's 1948 data on all aspects of
sexuality, detailing the fraudulent methods used by the Kinsey team to mislead
science and society on child sexuality and on the fraudulent 10% homosexual
population. Homosexual percentages are more realistically internationally
confirmed at between 1 % and 3% (with a range of 1.5% to 2%) by studies in
France, England, and the USA,2 with a 1989 Minnesota study finding less than
1 % to 1.5% of teenage boys or girls
viewing themselves as either "bisexual or
The actual percentage of homosexuals in the population is scientifically relevant
when reviewing "sexual orientation" research. The homosexual literature cites
chi Id abuse data of 1 in 4 gi rls (25%) by age 18, to po int out heterosexual abuse
rates. Based on The Advocate data, a similar number 21 % of boys are abused
by 15 years and 24% by 18 years, by homosexual males. In their FBI Report on
"Child Pornography and Sex Rings," Lanning and Burgess (1984) suggested the
earlier boy abuse data of "one in six" (17%) boys was undercounted:
The numbers for male victimization are more hidden, perhaps because
boys are reluctant to admit to up to being victimized. However, clinical
data are increasingly suggesting that boys may be at equal risk for
Heterosexual v. Homosexual Child Victimization
sexual victimization since they are the preferred target of habitual
pedophiles and victims of child sex rings (: 10).
The Advocate data support Lanning and Burgess, and homosexual researchers
have recorded 73% of "gay" males self reporting sex with boys"

Statistical Abstract
Differences between the male heterosexual majority (reliably reported as 95% to
98.8%).5 and the homosexual minority (reliably reported as anywhere from 1.1 % to 2%)
are especially important should child sex abuse data reflect higher rates of pathological
behavior--such as child sexual abuse--among one orientation versus the other.

Figure 2: Absent numbers of deviant female abusers, roughly 1,801,060 homosexual
males are implicated in sexual abuse of an estimated 7,040,000 boys under the age of
15 (more boys than the entire Chicago population) or 8,140,000 boys under the age of
, almost the entire population of New York
The Advocate eliminated roughly
1,100,000 boys ages 15 to 18 from its ('child abuse category". These boys would
increase the victim pool to 8,1400,000--abused by "adults" only. The Advocate stated
earlier "AIDS is the seventh leading cause of death among 14-23-year olds in the
United States". Hence teenagers over 14 should be included in these data.
Figure 3: At 25% abuse. most girls are victimized by heterosexual males. Roughly 88 million
adult and older juvenile males are implicated in 1he sex abuse of nearly 8 million girls,
implicating 9% of the heterosexual male population in some level of girl sex abuse.

Figure 4: Looking at raw numbers, roughly 9% of all heterosexual offenders at 1 victim per man
could be offenders vs. 100% of homosexuals at 4 boy victims per man. Since it is improbable,
that 100% of homosexuals abuse and boys especially, four boys per man, a significant gay
subgroup actively assaults immense numbers of boys. Clearly 2% of the adult male population
homosexual) abuses an estimated 24% of American boys.

Dr. Gene Abel, et ai, in their clinical research "Self-Reported Sex Crimes of
Nonincarcerate Paraphiliac" (1987) found rates of child sexual abuse to be dramatically
Abel reported that his sample of 153 self-confessed homosexual pederast
offenders admitted 22,981 boy victims . The mean victims per offender was 150.2 boys.
Self-admitted data for 224 self-confessed girl abusers was 4,435 victims, a mean of
19.8 girl victims per offender. The figure for homosexual child abuse is supported by
other research findings by Abel on homosexual behavior. He reported pederasts:
sexually molest young boys with an incidence that is occurring from five
times greater that the molestation of girls .... nonincarcerated child molesters
admitted to from 23.4 to 281.7 [One finds decimal parts of victims

problematic] acts per Offender ... .wh6se targets were males (Abel, et a., pp.
32-50, 44, 48). \
Based on Abel's research, as well as\the data on the (500) average male homosexual
partners, a higher bound estimate of boy victims is reasonable. The wide discrepancy
between Abel's self-reports of pederasts and his heterosexual population, finds
homosexual pederasts Significantly more lethal by nature. Mathematically, were
heterosexual males to abuse girls at even a fraction of the rate of self-reported
homosexual boy abuse, each American girl would be abused multiple times over.

While population statistics find heterosexual males significantly less likely to abuse
children than homosexuals, this is hardly a "Bill of Health" for heterosexuals, since the
estimates are 8 million abused girls and 8 million abused boys9.

As is clear in the graphs above, while not all homosexuals or heterosexuals abuse
children, child abuse is a statistical characteristic of male homosexual orientation
versus a statistical aberration of heterosexual orientation. Similar orientation statistics
apply to fidelity, monogamy, parenting, longevity. drug use and the like. The desire for
sex with youths would have several causes, few of which can be addressed here.
The findings on child sex abuse are more fully addressed in the complete The
Reisman and Johnson Report (1994).
Whether we use the general 17% boy abuse data or the 21 % to 24% Advocate abuse
figures, boy victims, like girl victims, are largely sexually violated by homosexual males-
-adults and older juveniles. As, among other things, homosexual child abuse is a blow
to a boy's emerging sense of masculinity, it exerts a toll on boys which differ somewhat
from a girl's trauma. Some of the millions of abused boys and girls put their abuse
behind them, like a bad dream. Others' damaged sense of self, faith and gender
security will lead them into rebellion; prostitution, promiscuity venereal diseases, suicide
attempts, drug and alcohol use, petty or serious crime, or something as apparently
benign as poor school work and truancy. Some abused youths become operationally
normal adults but are unable to commit to a relationship. Some will fear marriage and
flee from love. Some who marry find themselves unable to parent properly, and some
abused boys and girls become physical and/or sexual abusers themselves,
pornography users, sex addicts, spouse and child batterers, child sex abusers, rapists,
and the like.

Heterosexual v. Homosexual Child Victimization
Moreover, another trauma awaits boy abuse victims. Thousands of boys, infected by
adult AIDS carriers, have died and are dying of AIDS. The adult homosexual male
killers have escaped prosecution by blaming their youthful boy victims for their own
infection, telling the boys the adult men knew the boys were gay, that the boys wanted
sex, and the adults just obliged. In a rare and important clearly statement pointing to
homosexual men as the contagion factor for boys with AIDS, The Advocate claimed:
[O]ur community, the gay and lesbian community--and I particularly fault gay
men here---has done nothing to try and help our youth. Gay men view these
boys as recreational toys to be used. I have heard many stories of HIV-
positive men having unprotected sex with boys. They don't think it
matters .... AIDS is the seventh leading cause of death among 14-23-year aids in
the United States .... Teenagers are the next wave of the epidemic .... 1 have a lot
of friends that are 20, 22, that have AIDS now. They got it in high school. But
they didn't show the signs until later .... Once a kid is living on the street, anything
can happen--prostitution, drugs, even casual sex with people they feel safe with
(emphasis added. The Advocate, March 24. 1992, pp. 39-41).
In short, while the abuse calculations are based on the U.S. population statistics
(1991), no matter how one calculates these data, heterosexual offense rates against
children remain a minute "fraction" of the homosexual abuse rate. Therefore the
calculations indicate the "level of deviance" to be significantly higher for homosexual
abuse of boys than for heterosexual abuse of girls. At the same time, the calculations
imply that heterosexual child sex abuse is by no means the norm, but rather likely
restricted to under 10% of the population. This is what the calculations imply. Until and
unless other data can be found which logically displace these calculations, these
findings will have to be considered appropriate answers.10

Despite the absence of alleged "homosexual" youth, society should shortly experience a major
increase in young homosexuals. For, as homosexual academic activist, Gilbert Herdt explains in
Gay and Lesbian Youth (1989). by the 19805 "gay culture began to institutionalize 'socialization
techniques' u to transmit homosexuality "to a younger generation" and to encourage "the coming
out process in teens .... focusing on ... youth " despite their comment that "one in four" boys will die
of AIDS, since youngsters are "very susceptible to sexually transmitted diseases.

unanimous Canadian Supreme Court decision February 1992 to outlaw pornography as
faCilitating child sexual assault of children and women
is especially relevant to homosexual
rates of child abuse. Pornography is prototypically homosexual (91 % of the top 35 "gay"
magazines are pornographic, pomography is displayed in all "gayM bookstores, bars, baths

Heterosexual v. Homosexual Child Victimization
discos, and sundry clubs). Sex addiction fuels sex abuse in general so that boy sex abuse would
be a homosexual acting-out of the sex addiction problem.
S From a statistical perspective, the current debate on a "bisexual" (eg., have 2%-4% of men
have had some passing homosexual experience) population, is irrelevant to this discussion of
boy versus girl child sexual abuse.
6 Child protection data find boys and girls generally sexually abused by males, often juvenile males and
often in association with pornography. Department of Justice, and other standard girl and boy child sex
abuse data, define child abuse victims as those under 18, and older juveniles "count" as abusers in such
"heterosexual" data collections. Although their 21 % abuse rate is 4% over the highest 17% estimates of
boy abuse. The Advocate self report data exclude boys 15 years or older despite the fact that high
schoolers, 15 to 17 years-olds, are key targets for male sexual victimization.
7 The World Almanac Book of Facts; 1994.
B Along with massive sex activity in general, Bell and Weinberg reported 14% of blacks
and 25% of white homosexuals and Magnuson 73% of white homosexuals self-
reporting sex with boys. Bell and Weinberg note roughly 75% of the 5000 white
homosexual males interviewed also admitted between 100 to over 500 sex partners
and 25% included juveniles.
9 Boys now must learn what girls just recently have been taught--that sexual contact
with elders is not their fault and that boys and girls must report any such assaults
immediately to the authorities.
