    Agree, but this does depend on the childs age...
    When young, as it is a hard cruel world out there - they will find out soon enough - the unpleasant things should be deferred for as long as possible.
    For one to parade around with an abnormal condition....is NOT best at a camp for youngsters..
    Openly is the key word.

    I would like my son's to be children first..discover heterosexual sex..if they decided they were ''gay'' they would get my full support..but sending children into a ''gay'' situation..NO!!!

    Now, I would like to say at this point that by "environment" I had in mind the social and cultural
    environment, and not the biological environment, which might be not just difficult but impossible
    to disentangle from genetic factors.

    And on another subject, I said I might accept the geneticist side of the argument if over 80%
    of children adopted by homosexual parents grew up to be heterosexual. I amend the potential
    concession to substitute over 90% because googling indicates that the percentage of the US
    population which is exclusively homosexual may be under 5% (San Francisco a conspicuous outlier
    at about 16%, likely because its reputation has drawn homosexuals from elsewhere for several decades).

    The Boy Scouts promote an exclusively heterosexual environment. I have no idea if they do it by asking for personal pledges,
    or if they get by with some kind of don't ask don't tell policy.

    Guess it's better to send your kids to a camp with closeted gay members, you know they aren't repressed in the least.

    No, they don't, there is no policy regarding gay members, only openly gay members.

    The don't ask don't tell policy was a bit of a farce, because it want true, it was a don't find out policy.

    The boy scouts are going to do what they should have done in the first place. Leave it up to individual units.

    A "gay situation"?? So anywhere that may have gay people, would be a gay situation!?

    If this wasn't what you meant, please correct me....
    Fool me once, shame on you.
    Fool me twice....shame on me.

    if e a situation can turn a kid gay. The kid wouldn't be straight. my parents kept me away from whatever gay situations are. they attempted raise me straight. but here we are. I've got to straight brothers, so wasn't parenting that made me bisexual.

    just the nonsense that people are so terrified of seems absurd to me. the notion that a kid can be influenced to be gay, that makes me laugh

    The BS pledge says "Morally Straight" that is good enough for me.
