Scouts is not a place for talking about sex and any responsible adult would refer children to their parents if sexual themes of any sort came up. Really this thing is a non issue. Parents should always know who their kids around.
    Do you ever know who they are around??

    My friend's parents used to know a really quiet, well spoken, shy man named Peter..They used to drink together..his name was Peter Sutcliffe..

    Later known as the ''Yorkshire Ripper''

    You can never be sure that any man whom you barely know is not another Jerry Sandusky...no matter what he seems like.
    Do you understand the difference between "gay" and "pedophile"?

    I love Mango. I would trust my son around....

    Yes...but you are missing the point.

    Whether they are openly gay or not is irrelevant to me.

    No man whom I don't know EXTREMELY well (like a very, VERY close friend/relative) would I trust to go camping with my son.

    Much of what man learns and discovers occurs under not the best of conditions....dirty, fumbling, confusing....life can be a bitch, particularly for a homosexual..
    JMO..
    This stuff does happen at camp....but the odds one in a million....and there is nothing we can do, but, at all times, keep the communication lines open..between the adult and the child...

    Then , your son is being overly protected and may never experience camp with his peers... and many other experiences..

    Psychopaths are a category in and of themselves. I work in a prison and deal with them on a daily basis. They can be quite charming and intelligent.

    Do young boys need to go to scout camp??

    There is no such thing as overly protected children...

    Only attentative parents...

    Don't tell me you've never had a nasty experience??

    True. You could even know a person inside and out and they could still turn out to be a twisted son of a bitch. I think what is most important is teaching kids to protect themselves by letting adults know what is going on at the first sign of trouble.

    But they have the potential!
    But, the thing is, from having read these 1841 pages of posts, and lived 73 years, the fear of homos is unfounded, as is the fear of dogs, fires and deep places..
    Replace the fear with knowledge.....and respect....
