    I think you must be on crack to assume there is no difference.

    Because damn - he is a sexy beast, I tell ya
    He told me you always said that about him.

    Again, how would experimentation be bad?
    Depends on the age of the child.

    I answered no, but what I really meant was "not necessarily." And then I thought about it some more and realize that probably a lot more harm has been done by closeted gay men than by openly gay men. So I figure I voted too quickly. I wouldn't be outright opposed to the idea, and would change my vote if that were possible.

    You're thinking about sex and gender . . . you'er not just the sum of your sexuality.

    And, actually, I might moderate that comment. The straight male counselors were worse (more troublesome?), because a few of them were too rough on the kids during sports / outside free time. One of the six years that I worked there, one counselor got fired for (accidentally) breaking a kid's nose when he punted a kickball right into the poor kid's face.

    LOL - love the stereotype. . . gay men: can they punt a kickball? Hmm - things to ponder
