    I shower every day, and i dont enjoy the thought of another man checking me out. People shouldnt have to go without bathing in order to avoid it either.

    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.
    You are arguing about things i havent even mentioned. You are putting words in my mouth. I never called you vicious monsters, and i never said sexual harassment in any form is tolerable. Im saying that much like straight men and straight women are in seperate bathrooms for reasons of decency, so too should straight men and gay men (and women) be seperated for the same reasons. Im not accusing you personally of anything, but if you dont think there are gay guys out there getting their jollies off seeing guys in the bathroom, your wrong, and its not fair for me as a straight man to have to put up with it if i want to use a public toilet. i believe one of the prerequisites of being a gay man, is being sexually attracted to other men right? I dont think my son should have to sleep next to a gay male if he wants to enjoy the benefits of scout camp. Again, im not saying they should be banned from scouting, i am saying we should have the option of not being forced to be around them when we dont want to be. Why do you think they dont throw boy scouts and girl scouts in the same showers and tents together?? Scouting has already had their problems with scout leaders taking advantage of young scouts, so dont tell me it cant and wont happen.

I do believe gay marriage is wrong however.
    As far as where the Bible says it's wrong, this is the most direct passage in the Bible about it:
    Romans 1:26-27
    26 For this reason God gave them up to degrading passions. Their women exchanged natural intercourse for unnatural, 27 and in the same way also the men, giving up natural intercourse with women, were consumed with passion for one another. Men committed shameless acts with men and received in their own persons the due penalty for their error.
    I never said I should be able to make people do things either. However, I don't have a problem with ridiculing people if they call people sinners but can't explain why the sin is a sin, other than quoting a book that essentially just says "This is bad" and doesn't say why. I suppose the Romans passage comes a bit closer to why it is supposedly a sin by calling it "unnatural," but then again the Bible is wrong since we've witnessed gay sex happening naturally in nature. However, it still doesn't make sense to forbid something/ call something a sin just because they consider it unnatural. It's hurting no one.

    Of course, because you've entered backwards world. Or.. maybe there are just not as many bigots as you thought. Navy, how many people pull their kids out of public schools because of open gays? Virtually none. Same with camp. Maybe 5% of people are worried about catching the gay, but 5% of people will believe absolutely anything so that doesn't really count.

    You mean to say that men who take a peek at my willy might be motivated by sexual desire, rather than envy? I had no idea.

    If it is indisputable, you should be able to show some actual evidence. You have failed to do so. I wonder why.

    Or just as likely, you are not a part of mainstream America on this issue.
