    Frankly? I think any parent who would answer otherwise is missing something.
    and what would that be?

    In my opinion, these are more serious, and much more likely than any possible homosexual experimentation.

    Stupidity. There are no rational reasons to not let them go based on the presence of gays.

    The problem with that line of thought is you are assuming that just because someone is gay that they will automatically be up to something nefarious. That is not true, and your children have been around gay adults their whole life, and they have been around peers that are gay as well, and they present no danger just because of that fact.

    So you don't let your kids leave the house for fear they might do something stupid?

    That is your opinion but why add more to it with this?
