    Re: Biggest Threat To Safety & Well Being Of Your Children

    "Straight" kids their own age, but simply because there are more straight kids than gay kids, so it's more likely for a straight kid to cause them harm.

    No idea why people are choosing family/relatives. I grew up thousands of miles from any relative outside of my immediate family, so I guess I don't understand. Are people afraid of sexual predators in their extended family or something?

    Are your kids homeschooled? If not, you have no idea what friends, teachers, and children they are coming into contact with.

    Yes, any child of mine would be homeschooled.

    No teachers? No relatives?

    Contact does not have to mean physically. Any social or learning situation is contact.
    A situation where they may each know the other name and have something in common with.

    So being a student in the classroom with a teacher who might be gay would be contact.
    Maybe the nurse at your kid's school.
    A school administrator perhaps? Principle? Career counselor?

    Don't be foolish.
    Gay adults are everywhere. It's more than possible, most likely probable, that a child of yours is in "contact" with somebody who is gay.

    Why are you so scared of that? What's the fear?

    Why are you so belligerent? What makes you think this is a pro-anything thread?
    If it's silly to you why respond at all? Perhaps you're the silly one.

    Don't like the choices....don't respond. Not too difficult is it?

    Or pick the one that think is closest to the one you think.

    It's not that hard is it?

    Statistically the right answer is nothing even remotely related to one's sexual preference.

    I'm not gay. Don't make assumptions based on ignorance. It really reflects who you truly are.

    Touching is not the only way to be in contact with people.

    I don't like any of the poll options.


    I consider almost everyone a threat, so the point is kinda moot for me.

    Do you have kids?

    If not, I'd suggest you don't. Living in fear everyday would be a horrible existence.

    Re: Biggest Threat To Safety & Well Being Of Your Children

    The real answer is "you are". Because you are a bad parent. Because almost everyone is a bad parent. Because you will invariably set bad examples for your children, you will pass on your dangerous prejudices, and you will teach them things that will make their lives harder on them. Fortunately, everyone also has the ability to shake off the mistakes their parents made and learn better for themselves. And then go and make all new ones for their own kids.

    Parents, especially American parents, need to learn some humility.
