    one study returned a percentage of .5% identifying as homosexual and the other 8.5% and mentioned "attraction", not experimentation.

Its basic math.
    Yes, if we ignore how you can be wrong, it seems you might be right

    There are surveys which break down the percentages of self-reported behaviors which document this. The rates are pretty close to the same (percentage wise) but again....because of the sheer numbers, this means that more experimentation takes place among straight boys.
    So you were intentionally ignoring the effect demographics would have to make a political point? Thank you

    he fails to address anything because he can't. if it goes against the only thing he knows.

    yes I am a parent. I speak the truth so yes I am proud of that. you not really reading what I am responding to either. again for all the illiterate morons. he said he was worried that his kids might be the type that would stone Matthew Shepard or be influenced by others to participate willingly and molestation.

    some people need a reality check you can teach kids to avoid both of those situations. I've been doing it for years.

    No....I never said a greater percentage...what I was referring to (if you go back and look) is that if you are concerned about same sex sexual experimentation, then you cannot discount the fact that it is more likely due to sheer numbers that an adolescent will engage in same sex sexual experimentation with a heterosexual than a homosexual...so how are you "protecting" your child by keeping them away from gay kids?

    It says "a large Dutch study of high school students found that 8.5% said they were ***attracted*** to people of the same sex as themselves". Which is, again, not the same as you are claiming above
