    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.


    To me its pretty obvious if you have a strong physical attraction to someone of the opposite sex you are gay, if you have a strong sexual feeling for someone of the opposite sex you are straight.

    11 sounds a bit early to me, and even if it is accurate that leaves at least 7 years between infancy and hard wiring.

    The American Psychological Association has been unable to reach that conclusion:

    Wiki: Environment and sexual orientation

    (from link, emphasis added):
    ...Although much research has examined the possible genetic, hormonal, developmental, social, and cultural influences on sexual orientation, no findings have emerged that permit scientists to conclude that sexual orientation is determined by any particular factor or factors. Many think that nature and nurture both play complex roles...

    The sexual orientation of the first generation of children with homosexual adoptive parents will provide strongly suggestive evidence, and I might yield to the geneticist side of the argument if over 80% of them turn out to be heterosexual.

    However, I would still prefer to send my children to a camp catering to heterosexuals only.

    How sad is that gays want to groom 11 years olds

    Yes, I would. My children are 16 and 14... so what their age has to do with anything, I have no idea.

    Fool me twice....shame on me.

    Actually, Navy, you mispoke... you said 'opposite sex' twice, I'm pretty sure you meant to say 'same sex' the first time... look at your post again.

    No, I'm pretty sure that's his philosophy.

    Maybe if older gay boys tried to force their attention on them in close quarters in a tent at night...maybe the peer pressure.
