    I just received a message from a member here (http://www.realjock.com/henkie11) whose profile lists him as 23 but who just emailed me that he is actually 14 (!!!). I'm gonna alert the RJ gods as well, but just wanted to put this out there in the general community.

    Anyone else run into issues with the prepubescent set and profiles on RJ?

    This is just going to become one of those older/younger guys flame war forums.

    I know it....

    How do you get that impression? I figured it was more a matter of...oh, say, legality.

    z, I remember an earlier thread about this where HndsmKansan (I think) and several other members also met this guy masquerading as older than he really is.

    Man. I'm 22, but...

    Kids these days. icon_rolleyes.gif

    Well thanks Zdrew for finding out about this guy. Last thing RJ needs is to be accused of encouraging the corruption of minors!

    Bad enough that guys in their 30's and 40's lie about their age to appear younger, now we have kids saying they are 23! What ever happened to integrity and honesty? Did those traits go out of fashion and I didn't get the memo?

    There are alot more minors on these kinds of sites. All they have to do is type in an age and they have a profile. Trust and believe that the kid already has another profile up and running.

    It was probably a police sting targeting you, zdrew, because, well, you look like such an obvious perv. icon_lol.gif Just kidding.

    But seriously, I can see why RJ wouldn't want minors on here (liability and all), but as long as minors aren't engaging in sex chat or trying to hook up with anyone here, I think this isn't a bad resource for teen gays. It sure gives them a healthier self-image than a lot of other sites they might go to.

    I only wish I had access to a place like this when I was 14. I would've had many things figured out a lot sooner.

    In some ways I agree that RJ is a good site for information for young gays, but I have a funny feeling that the average 14 year old is not here for the education. They are probably being driven by hormones. There are several gay sites that are specifically targeted for gay teens that are probably safer. I hate to say it but some gay guys can be predatory.

    Well, we were all there once, it was pure hell. In some ways it was more difficult back in the 70s and 80s because we were still seriously oppressed and there was no internet to enhance communication. But it still must be tough to be gay and a teenager in America.
    Here in Toledo we have an organization called the Rainbow Area Youth. It's kind of like a boys/girls club for LGBT teenagers.
    There are a few organizations like this throughout the country but their advertisement is dismal so few even know they exist.
    Something should be done about this.

    Instead of ruining a thread with butterflies, cookies, and lolcatz let's instead ruin it with being snotty.

    That is terrible, I had something really terrible happen to me regarding a minor once. I met a guy that truly did look the age that he said he was. He said that he was 22. After our first date, I found out his real age. Thank god I didn't touch the kid. (And I'm not putting in writing anywhere was his age was) But honestly I was horrified. It was the last time I ever dated anyone who looked under 30.

    I think we all can admit that at that age we were all thinking about sex with guys, and even though the internet can be used as an instrument for preditors it is also used by guys trying to experiment and get their rocks off! I feel bad for the kid he just wanted to get his dick off! lol Been there and done that!
    He was probably some perve that gets off on the thought of younger guys and wante you to role play! I have talked to a couple of guys on the net and found out they were underage but it took more then just an email or two to find out!

    WEIRD???
