    That's not even close to what I said. You should get some reading glasses.

    You said you (i.e, YOU) would make a move. That shows that YOU couldn't control yourselves.

    By allowing Gay boys into the Boy Scouts, we entrust that they behave like proper scouts and do the right thing. That includes keeping their hands to themselves.

    "you might be confusing the reaction from his peers with a ban on participation."

    Can you clarify this?
    sure: officially accepting gay members won't change the fact that kids tease

    It's not up to us to decide on who they want in their club and as I said before I really don't care one way or the other.

    What if they wanted to exclude blacks or latinos? What if they wanted to exclude the blind or wheel-chair bound kids. That's their right....right? Afterall....it's not up to us to decide on who they want in their club?

    True, but teasing only can go so far. By removing the gay ban, it removes a sense of validation to the it. It's not fun when there's no point.

    Did you not associate with other children when you were younger, or something?

    Kids tease each other for MANY reasons. Shall we not include kids in scouts that wear glasses because they might get teased? You're sounding ridiculous and desperate at this point.

    You keep increasing my suspicions that you care so little about what a Scout stands for and a great deal more concern on what he has between his legs and what he is going to do with it when he grows up.

    Now about your so-called knowledge of gay men all being 'fems'. You obviously don't know gay men. They run the spectrum from fem to super butch. There are quite a few who could snatch and jerk you into the next county, which isn't a sex thang.... uh unless you want it to be, I'll bet most wouldn't mind turning you out...

    What are you even talking about?

    I think the issue might be with your reading comprehension.

    A private, religious organization not wanting to let members in who are open and honest about doing something that is in their eyes an abomination and sinful is not discrimination. Freedom doesn't mean you are free to impose your self on others even if they would rather go on camping trips and tie knots without you. It means you have the right to form your own club to go camping with if that club, using THEIR freedom, makes a rule that you can't join.

    Correct.. They should have the right to choose to allow the people they want in their private club. You can make your own club if you'd like. Do you want to go play in the WNBA also?
