Given that we are an open part of our communities, living and not hiding from the law, being elected to public office and serving openly in the military — is wanton sex better? NOT TO ME!

— Ernest Fleming, goqnotes.com, Feb. 6, in response to our Love & Lust Sex Issue QPoll: “Will sexual freedom of 1970s return?”

I am incredibly disappointed and disturbed by the tenor of this article. Gay men should not be fostered or adding fuel to hysteria around sex offenders or child pornography, but should instead be exercising a hyper-vigilant suspicion of and critical eye toward such discourses.

Sorry but this person knows exactly what the law says he can and cannot do. If his intentions are honest then he understands he cannot be active in the organization he founded. To do so just makes it appear as if he is still trying to surround himself with vulnerable young men, even if they are legal adults. Mr. Brigham would do well to reengage the recovery process that will encourage better judgement and keep him out of jail.

— Dr. Jimmy, Feb. 8, in response to our follow-up coverage of EMIRE House and founder Brian Brigham at goqnotes.com/21000/.
