NAMBLA stands for the North American Man/Boy Love Association. Their agenda is to repeal laws prohibiting adult men from having sex with boys under the age of consent, and to repeal laws regarding age of consent in general.

This is a real organization, and their existence has given the rest of the gay rights movement a bad name --- so bad, in fact, that most gay rights groups ban them from showing up at their rallies. Often, opponents of gay rights will use NAMBLA to their advantage as it does perpetuate the stereotype that gay men molest kids more often than straight people. NAMBLA claims that they do not advocate that their members commit child molestation, nor do they claim to engage in conspiracies to actually molest kids. However, they have supported alleged pederasts who have been to trial, and even lent their support to Michael Jackson during his last child molestation trial --- but he was sane enough to avoid affiliating with them, and instead picked the Nation of Islam.

Generally, NAMBLA is the sort of group that is fodder for late night talk show hosts' running jokes.

NAMGLA

NAMGLA is alleged by some to stand for "North American Man/Goat Love Association".[1] But Doc denies it, claiming "it was delicious!"
