Yes, an organization with this name actually exists. If you don’t know what NAMBLA is all about, just look at the name and think about the worst, or “worst,” possible things that it could mean. There are a million and one reasons for why we should not completely take NAMBLA’s stance completely seriously.
However, it is absolutely worthwhile to hear their arguments and to think about everything that they say. Some of the arguments that they use to support their specific viewpoint are actually more or less valid arguments.

For example, they claim that despite the fact that the law sets age restrictions for activities such as sexual intercourse, those age restrictions may not match up with people’s physical and psychological levels of development. At an age below the age of consent, a person can be more than ready to embark on sexual intercourse.
Rates of development are different for different people. This argument does carry a lot of validity to it, because it is true that people do grow at different rates and realize things at different ages. For example, there are people below the age of consent who rabidly and knowingly have sexual contact with a lot of people; while on the other end of the spectrum there are people who are neither ready nor comfortable to partake or throw themselves into such activities.
Some people below the age of consent are more educated or careful than others about sexuality and safe sex, though there are people above the age of consent who are ignorant about sex or who just don’t care to practice safe sex practices.
For some people, being above 18 doesn’t necessarily mean that they aren’t going to ruin their lives. Just because somebody is elderly, that doesn’t mean that he or she is careful or knowing enough to not ruin his or her life. Read more: Village Voice Media | Wikipedia
Sexually transmitted diseases are spreading like crazy among old people because they think that they can have unprotected sex with each other and get off the hook, just because elderly women can’t get pregnant.
PETA stands for the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. PETA was founded in 1980 by Ingrid Newkirk and Alex Pacheco. It is based in Norfolk, Virginia. PETA is an animal rights organization that works through litigation, educating the public, cruelty investigation, protest campaigns, special events, legislation and celebrity involvement.
PETA has become so big and well-known that it is commonly referred to in media and pop culture. They focus on four situations that animals suffer in: entertainment, the food industry, laboratories and the clothing industry. However, they do put some focus on other types of suffering, as well.
