    Sooo, I'm doing an historiographic analysis on the theme of "Stonewall, 1969" and the gay liberation movement.

    To do so, I'm seriously analysing this book, called Stonewall, by the honorable historian Martin Duberman.

    Here's an excerpt of the young days of a gay activist :

    Martin Duberman's "Stonewall""Despite the rigors, Craig was happier than not during his seven years at the Chigaco Junior School (...) Craig was the first boy in his age group to reach puberty, and in the showers the others never tired of staring in amazement at his emerging pubic hair. Harry, a slightly older boy, moved matters to the next logical stage.

    He took Craig out to one of the gigantic oak trees in the woods that the boys (disobeying the rules) loved to climb, and when they were stanging at the top of the tree, he unzipped Craig's pants and said he was going to show him something.

    Craig immediately got a roaring har-on and Harry masturbated him. To Craig's astonishment, "white stuff" flew out of his penis, great gobs of it covering his jean - followed by panic over how to explain the stains to his housemother. Craig and Harry finally concocted a tale about "finding a can of white paint while playing in the woods"...

    Sooooo ! Who wanna play in the woods with me ?

    Masters degree's so much better than graduate degree... I LOVE STUDYING ! icon_biggrin.gif

    Aaaah the ol' "I found a can of white paint in the woods" excuse.

    That's sexy.
    Here's a snip of one of my favorite research articles.

    "150 squirrel monkeys weighing between 450 and 800 g were anesthetized with Diabutal at a dosage of 28 mg/kg. A tracheotomy was performed and a large portion of the skull was cleaned of all tissue and cemented to a head holder. A dorsal approach was used to expose the eighth cranial nerve by removing the posterior one-half of the cerebrum bilaterally and aspirating most of the cerebellum. One branch of the vestibular nerve was cut to expose a portion of the underlying temporal bone. A small portion of the exposed temporal bone was then thinned with a fine dental burr and a small opening, .25 to .5 mm in diameter, was made through the bone into the scala tympani while attempting to keep the inner lining of the cochlea intact.....
    The surgery was traumatic and many of the animals died." -Rhode

    Who said cochlear physiology wasn't fun?

    ^ I never thought that I'd confuse "anesthetized" with "euthanized", but I called it either way.

    OP wins though. I just wish my computer class was that fun to study. icon_rolleyes.gif

    Aaaah icon_smile.gif I can't get enough of this book. In the other pages, Craig gets "steady" with an older guy named Tony. They're really into baseball and they decide to go see a ball together, ILLEGALLY ! They plan to take the last train to get to the School before the student count.

    But they get so much into the game that they miss the last train and have to walk during the dark night on the train track. They're scared so they're holding hands all the way.

    When they get at the School, the Director is waiting for them. They explain that they hold their hands all the way not to get lost in the dark.

    Unfortunately, the Director say something about "faggots" and Tony gets affraid. The Director sends Tony in another group... He's never gonna talk to Craig again. icon_cry.gif

    Damn, I can't believe I'm doing this for a master's degree analysis hahahaha...
