    Y'know... I'd have a concern if it was mixed boys and girls (if some were over 12), because of the potential for some of the youngsters to sneak around and have sex if not carefully supervised.

    If you have all boys (and men Scoutmasters) but some are gay... the same concern applies, doesn't it? Because you have people who might be sexually attracted to each other camping out in the woods together, and most of them are underage.

    You'd need lots of good supervision.


    So anyway, I would not be crazy about the idea no.
    Thinking about it some more, I actually do understand that concern. If I was sure of they would be well supervised I wouldn't have a problem with it, or if I was sure my son wasn't gay. But I understand what you mean, and its a valid concern.

    straight boys are indifferent to it, not repulsed by it. closet cases make all this fuss.

    it's normally indicative of some latent homo sexuality, or repressed memories of sexual abuse that makes people react in is repulsed way.

    I am a straight guy and the sex acts you indulge in are disgusting to me I defend your right to do them in the privacy of your home.

    C'mon, I realize that you are trying to not come off as saying you don't want your son to be gay, but it's not working. As if homosexuality was something you could be talked into.

    I think that teenagers who are openly gay are liable to encourage others to join their ranks. Maybe that's wrong. But I'm coming from a place that says, "Teenagers are sometimes nutz. Some teens think it's really cool to be bi- or gay. And just as a teen shoplifter would encourage others to join their ranks? So might a gay guy."

    Riddle me this: If my 10-year-old is manipulated to have guy-on-guy sex by a 14-year-old, how is that any less a traumatic experience than if it was an 18-year-old manipulating him?

    Well, of course I wouldn't want my son to be gay. You say, "As if homosexuality was something you could be talked into." Do you think for one New York Minute that the boys molested by priests were all homosexual???
