    Your Star, please don't misunderstand me. Kids manipulate kids all the time. It's called peer pressure. Some are more successful at it than others. And some are more susceptible than others. It's KIDS I'm talking about. Not adults.

    The is a large, unsubtle difference between not worrying, which is what you did, and not having to worry. School trips are much more likely to have sexual experimentation than a boy scout trip.

    I'm not "playing a prejudice card". Your posts assume negative things about gay children/teens based on their sexuality. That is prejudice. Moreover, those same posts are based in a misunderstanding of homosexuality and child/teen experimentation. That is ignorance.

    And you know what? I cannot take it anymore. I cannot take coming into threads like this and seeing people being so prejudicial against gay people (kids, no less) and then claiming that they are the ones who are being unfairly criticized - as if it's problematic for people like me to point out prejudice and ignorance. It's not wrong. It's the right thing to do and I will continue to do it until the day I ****ing die no matter how many "cards" people accuse me playing to defend themselves without actually having any research or logic to back up their archaic positions. Ignorance and prejudice are the problem. Period.

    But you are still assuming that someone who is gay will try and manipulate another kid into sex, and that is just wrong.

And we, as a society, believe there is hardly a more heinous crime insofar as after-effects are concerned.


    sorry mags i just didnt know you were a homophbia. SO im trying to understand what the base of your homophobia is.
    Theres nothing Odd about kids being openly gay.

    what is the difference between gay and openly gay as far as it creating a panic about your child's well being?

    You honestly think your childs potential to be "manipulated" is dramatically increased by the presence of gays?

    again i ask What are these "unpleasant" experiences that you speak of and how are they dramatically increased by the presence of "gays" as supposed to their non-presence (or better yet OPEN presence)

    Why are drugs and bullying less serious than homosexuality?

    100% wrong, disagreeing with me is NOT the issues

    her illogical perception that somehow gays are more dangerous than straights and that they make her uncomfortable and open gays are odd is what makes her views homophobic.
    yes mags views are homophobic, thats a fact based on her posting, feelings, thoughts and opinions

    not sure why accuracy bothers you

    what do you call a person who thinks a person is more dangerous or more likely to commit sexual assault simply because they are gay?
