    Of course. There's nothing wrong with being gay, it's not contagious, and it doesn't make one a pedophile. It's like asking "would you let your kid attend a camp where there are other people?". Completely nonsensical.

    Going back to my pubescent mindset, I remember quite clearly that I never once believed that I needed to try and suck a dick in order to know I did not have any desire to suck a dick.

    It was pretty obvious to me that I was straight. No confusion whatsoever. But that's because I am straight. I did not have people telling me there was something wrong with me because of the gender I am attracted to. I didn't have people telling me that I only choose to be attracted to women and that I could very easily slobber all over a cock if I wanted to because being gay is a "choice".

    That's where the true irony lies. The people who are most fearful of having their child "turned" gay feel that way because they believe that being gay is a choice, and are the very people who are promoting the hypothetical notion that one would somehow need to "test the waters" in order to determine whether or not they like it.

    I wonder if they think this because they are actually bisexual and have attractions toward both genders, though. I mean, they had to have been capable of thinking "I could suck a dick/munch a rug if I really wanted to" at some point in their lives in order to think it's a choice. Is the only thing that prevents the "it's a choice" crowd from gobbling knob the fear that they might actually discover that they like it quite a bit?

    Because as a straight man, I know that the "only" thing which prevents me from sucking dick is the simple fact that I am not attracted to men. It's no different from when I was 13. Didn't have any urge to do it. I don't see it as a choice because I know that I have no interest in knob gobbling. I mean, technically I could physically suck a dick by choice, anyone could, but I could not make myselfwant to do it, nor can I even fathom a situation were putting a penis into my mouth would lead me into thinking "Hey! That was awesome! I'm going to be so ****ing gay from now on! Bring on the cocks!"


    I guess that's why I find the whole "being gay is a choice" position so absurd.

    Sure, I like openly happy people.
    In all seriousness, I don't care.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    As opposed to camps where their are certain members who preach non-stop antigay arguments who themselves are closet gays?

    You mean like the ones in this video?

    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    It is an unquestioned fact of life that sexual predators, whether they be gay or straight, find ways to "socialize" with young people because of their attraction to them. It is also logical to assume that someone who is "openly gay" is not a sexual predator looking for children to abuse - why advertise if you want to commit a crime.

    The vast majority of gay people, just as with the vast majority of straight people, are not peodophiles and in the scenario presented in this poll, I'd suggest the other adults in the camp would have a greater chance of being hit on than the children.
