  •  When I was a grad. student (5+ / 0-)

    at Cornell, there was something of a scandal when an undergraduate lost a scholarship after he started openly promoting NAMBLA.  (This was back in the '80s.)  There was a certain amount of argument as to whether the scholarship was withdrawn because he was gay or because he was promoting child molestation, and whether a granting organization had the right to withdraw its support over ostensible political views.  I don't remember how that hashed out in the end.

    Not that I've been paying attention much, but as I have not heard a whole lot from NAMBLA in the past two decades, my assumption has been that NAMBLA principallly exists in the minds of conservatives who want to smear gay men.
