    2.) so then you wouldnt let your kids go to ANY camp then ?

    im not bashing you, sorry you think that but its not true.
    Of COURSE I would let my kids go to camp. And I wouldn't care if anyone there was gay or not....because I wouldn't know about it. But if there are kids at the camp that are advertising they're gay? I have a problem with that. Political correctness takes an easy last to cautious parenting. My views are not factually homophobic. It may be fun to say...but it's untrue. My views are completely and totally based on the behavior of every teenager on planet earth.

    So the Boy Scout rep mis-states the situation, it would be like a girl's camp-out with several adults present, most of them women.

    Giving it a bit more thought the women, on the Scouting camp-outs I attended way back when, are just as threatening to the young boys as any gay adult leader....
    I went on boy Scout trips, my boyfriend went on them also. As youth and as adults, I want open at the time about it, but there are gay people in scouts, the policy is against openly gay people, I an openly bisexual, so no rule against me, my boyfriends is gay but he isn't really all out and proud, he doesn't talk like jack from will and grace. So we obey the rules.

    Remember there is no rule against homosexuality, just openly gay people.

    this is factually you unless youd like to revise or deeper explain your statements

    2.)not through the roof at all im trying to understand why you have homophobic view, where they come from and what logic is behind them

    for example why do you think open gays are more dangerous and more likely to commit assault than closed gays or straights?
    Just because her beliefs are irrational does not make them homophobic.

    Being out of the closet is not advertising. It is simply not hiding. You have some really twisted ideas about what gay people are like.

    so then you have a a problem with open gays and not straights, this is what makes your views factually homophobic your views are based on OPEN gays and you just proved that fact


    otherwise you wouldnt want to send your boy/girl to a camp with OPENLY straight people that advertise it

    im not going to send my daughter to camp with your son because he is OPENLY hetero and he might sexually assault my daughter, thats based on all teens im just be cautious, right?

    Wow. So homosexual experimentation is somehow more troubling and problematic than is either heterosexual experimentation or drug use amongst young teens. Again: wow. It's too bad you think that way.

    Heh. Yes, there are quite a lot of gay people here in SF. Most of the gay dudes I know are more monogamous than I am.

    Actually, if you break it down "homo" means same and "phobia" is fear, so "homophobia" actually literally means fear of the same.

    Semantic drift. It's why we don't still Apr speak Latin.
