KENNETH IN THE (212): Hot 'n' fuzzy newsman.
METROSOURCE: I found this Metrosource piece about consent in older/younger gay relationships to be very confusing. I was never into drugs or alcohol, but if those are used to ply, then that's wrong. Also, forcing people into cabs is wrong, duh. But the writer seems to imply — are we really going down this road, after already deciding adult women can't consent to sex with men in their field who are more powerful? — that younger men can't truly consent to sex with older men; or at least that is the vague implication, considering the title of the piece and the way he wraps it up, smugly noting he isn't into guys half his age:
I hope we can more openly discuss the nature of predatory behavior within the gay community and tell young people that – no matter what kind of expectations or pressure they feel – they have the right to say no.
If you read his article, it confused me where he felt he didn't have the right to say no.

The video is appalling. The people there just left. He now owes $220K.
