Why is there Tchaikovsky, Rimbaud, Verlaine and so many others in this page, which is under the title pederasty? Does homosexual means pederast? You have it all completely mixed up here and I am afraid that you are passing a wrong message. It is insulting to the memory of most of those people to be linked with pederasty.

Better inform yourself, before you start writing nonsense again, Mr. Anonymous. Fulcher 15:27, 29 July 2006 (UTC)
There is no need to perpetuate here the canard that all pederastic relations are necessarily degraded. Certainly there is nothing shameful in the love and co-operation between Verlaine and the boy Rimbaud, even though passion got the better of Verlaine in the end. I suggest to you that it would be insulting to their memory to paper over their relationship with politically correct terminology. Haiduc 21:40, 11 June 2006 (UTC)

Most of the images here are irrelevant. Probably some people edit the commons wishfully... -- 04:50, 27 August 2006 (UTC)

Why are they "irrelevant"? Fulcher 14:21, 11 September 2006 (UTC)
I don't see how Walt Whitman is relevant here, for example. I think the anonymous concerns here are valid. --Midnightdreary 23:29, 4 January 2008 (UTC)
