    U.S. society isn't ready for it, they still have separate male/female toilets, showers, gym's etc. Until U.S. society moves beyond these hangups then yes, it's still an issue.

    The worst thing about lying about sexual preference is when the individual lies to himself. If there were less of a stigma, if people would just accept that some people are born that way, then there would be less of a motivation to try to be something that they're not.

    I knew long before I knew about the birds and bees that there was a different sort of feeling being around girls than being around boys. No one talked about sexuality when I was a kid (1950s), but there was no denying the feelings. At least now the taboo has been lifted, but the silly nonsense about homosexuality still persists.

    So, no, homosexuality is not a contagious disease, is not, in fact, a disease at all. If it were, perhaps a vaccine could be developed.

    Sorry, but until science gives us some answers then neither of us has anything
    to work with except hunch and the historical record, and so far you have offered
    nothing on the record.

    Children are capable of recognizing overt homosexuality in camp and anywhere else.

    One thing science can tell you: Homosexuality is not catching.

    The issue is whether environmental influences can promote homosexual development
    which would not occur absent those influences.

    and the answer is that, by the time the individual reaches the ripe old age of 11 or so, sexual preference is already hard wired. It is most likely hard wired at birth. Going to a camp that includes openly gay campers, being raised by openly gay parents, being taught that gay bashing is wrong, none of that makes anyone gay.

    What does that have to do with anything Star? Typical bait question from you about a topic you are typically combative about.

    How is this a bait question? Because gay people exist, and we aren't going away, nor should our lives be negatively effect because some people think how we were born is wrong. You say you don't want your kid around gay people who aren't in the closet, but in order for that to be, then they have to lie, and you said you don't want your kids around liars either. So which would you rather have, them being around gay people, or liars? Or will you stop this nonsense about being scared of gay people? Because we don't harm children, and are normal ****ing people, and if you can't see that, well that is your problem.

    Well, if you believe it, then it must be so, whether there is a scintilla of evidence for your belief or not.
