    Besides..when I go into a church..it makes my skin crawl...smells like a funeral directors...there is no joy..no happiness...just depression..
    I don't get into the business of criticizing other's religions unless they really want to discuss the validity of their religion. So I will refrain from entering into this line of debate with you.

    Why do we have a mens restroom and a womens rest room? The lines have become so crossed and skewed that the reasons dont really matter anymore. It used to be that they were seperated so the guy cant get a peek and the girl and vice versa. Only now, the gay guy can go into the mens restroom and take peeks all he wants. Frankly it makes me uncomfortable to be in a restroom with a gay guy for that very reason. I feel the same way about sending my son to scout camp with a gay scout or scout leader because i dont want my son having to worry about sexual advances from another man. I wouldnt let my daughter go sleep in a tent with a straight boy for the same reason, makes perfect sense to me. As far as gays in scouting, i see no reason why they should be banned, but i also see no problem with them forming their own troops.

    So, what you're basically saying is that you're afraid gay men will treat you as how most heterosexual men treat women on a routine basis?

    Chicks get groped, slapped, touched, hit-on, stalked, cat-called, stared at, etc. at bars and at work and on public transit and just about everywhere you can imagine there's interaction with guys. They deal with it on a regular basis with the utmost classiness imaginable.

    But, since you're afraid that some guy is going to look at your willy, we have to outlaw gays and treat them differently?

    Yes thats exactly what im afraid of. Just because it happens to women every day doesnt make it right, nor does it mean that it doesnt happen to men either. I shouldnt have to endure it from a gay man either. One wrong doesnt excuse another does it? I dont want another guy looking at my "willy" and i should have that right shouldnt i? And i never said they should be outlawed did i?

    Don't ever join the military if you don't like men looking at your willy.

    As we seldom if ever know the mental ages of fellow Interneters, and judging from what is said, we do indeed "talk" with children..all too frequently...
    so, Wolfie...unbeknowest to thee......
    And the Avenger is right...we should speak DIRECTly to children....as much as possible....AND ...if qualified to do so....it is quite the responsibility..

    I just find it incredibly amusing. One half of our society deals with this behavior on a constant basis, but you have it in your head that you're the only victim of unwanted sexual attraction. You're not. It happens to all of us. Don't get yourself in a tizzy if it ever happen. Let it slid, walk-away and laugh about it later. I do it as much as every woman has ever done it.

    To add to that, as a gay guy, your willie (and probable hairy beer gut) isn't something that I would ever want to look at. Such behavior is unacceptable, sexual harassment and all around rude. You're making us out as some sort of vicious monsters, which I and all of my friends -- both gay and straight -- certainly are not. We are all human and have the exact same beliefs and wishes about privacy as you do.
