    News Flash - No matter where you've sent or left your kid (regardless of gender), you've left/sent them where there are gay people.

    The horror.....the horror....

    News Flash #2 - Gay isn't contagious. You won't catch it.

    Irrational fear is simply irrational.

    Those who are comfortable with their sexuality feel no anxiety at the proximity of gays. After a long career in nursing, I can truthfully claim that some of my best friends are indeed gay. After an evening meeting, three of us ended up in the pub, as you do, and after a short while we noticed an old queen across the room eyeing us up. My pals soon fell to arguing which one of them was attracting his attention, and eventually turned to me as an unbiased observer. My response that being both better-looking, and fresh meat, it was probably me, didn't go down well, and I went home with two bruised shoulders from a stereo punch!

    I'd be more concerned about the level of expertise of the people there than their sexual orientation.

    No...it just shows once again that, as usual in your polls, you are at the extreme fringe of reality.

    Openly gay suggests to me that there might be inappropriate behavior of a sexual nature. It would be equally inappropriate for sexual behavior of heterosexuals as well. Why would a camp have to advertise the 'openly gay' people would be involved? Did I miss something along the way?

    What - our other answers weren't GOOD enough for you? Imagine - a post by Navy Pride going down the ****ter.

    To add - not all southern boys are *like you* - don't even hide behind your regional placement as an excuse for your idiocy in all things. You're not a good old country boy - you're a douche . . . good old country boys don't pop off at the mouth with such an endless stream of bull****.
    Glad you could make that distinction. I've been living in Georgia for 11 years now, 22 years in the Chicago suburbs before that, but all too often I am judged here as a backward hillybilly because of where I live.

    As for the poll I have no problem with my son camping with people who are gay. He is part of our youth group at church (that ranges from middle school to early college age) and there are an inordinately large population of gay kids in the group. Evidently people think they can "church" the gay out of their kids. It doesn't work that way, and we know and love them anyway.

    Well it's harder to disagree with a lesbian. We like a lot of the same stuff.

    I think an important issue when it comes to this apparent cultural paradigm shift we're seeing with respect to the normalization of homosexuality is how are we to address certain "mixed company" situations, for lack of a better phrase. This includes adults but also children. Presently, for example, we segregate boys and girls/men and women in a wide variety of situations where various levels of sexually oriented vulnerability occurs specifically because in a heterosexual culture males and females are naturally attracted to each other and efforts are made to avoid situations unwanted exposure to the natural inclinations. We have male and female restrooms. At the gym, guys are not allowed in the ladies' locker rooms and vice-versa where they are in various stages of nakedness. Male college students are usually not allowed to share dorm rooms with female students. If a lady is arrested, a female officer must be called to frisk her (feel her body to see if there are any concealed weapons) and place on the handcuffs. Male prison inmates are not allowed to serve their sentences in the same facilities as female inmates. I'm not big into camping but I wouldn't want my daughters to go on a camping trip with the possibility that they will be forced to sleep overnight in a tent with a boy and neither would they. Again, this is all done to avoid potentially inappropriate situations of a sexual nature of some sort from as benign as looking at the opposite sex while disrobed to avoiding physical contact while in a state of vulnerability all with the understanding that males are females are each others sexual counterparts. Now with the emerging societal normalization of homosexuality, people of the same gender are openly the objects of sexual attraction but as far as I know, no similar protections/accommodations are being implemented to offer equivalent cultural buffer zones and anybody bringing that issue up runs the risk of being vilified as a hate-filled bigot.
