They want to promote political, social agendas and that's just utterly inappropriate when kida are involved.

It's at this point that his head should have exploded from the cognitive dissonance.

"Gay" is a killing word.

Or celebrate the new year. Or watch the Flintstones.

I have to wonder if this guy actually has ever seen any of the things that he's dismissing as inappropriate for, let's be honest, sexual content.  If it is a relationship blog, then yeah it is going to be inappropriate for chillun', gay or straight.  If it is just a blog where gay parents talk about gay parent challenges, then no it isn't.

And there won't be any real reason to talk about sex among Scouts than there is now, i.e. preventing and reporting of molestation.  Jeez, dude, before launching a nationwide campaign against something, do a little research.  The only thing that really "tells" on most gay adults is what their partner looks like.

To guys like this, a framed picture of your same sex partner on your desk is flaunting your homosexuality. Basically even acknowledging that you're gay is TMI.

Wants gay out of the boy scouts?

these poor kids already fight un uphill battle with those stupid uniforms. now this douche wants to make sure that being happy is literally banned from scouting.

this guy sounds like he may benefit from a d*ck in his arse.

Lucky for those left-handed scouts who joined after they stopped chopping off left-hands of sinister people. It took proving that lefties don't cause lefties. Most know they're born that way, Dexter.

I've heard this logic before, namely when my bio dad tried to prevent me from telling my little sister I'm bi, or when she asked what I learned in Anthro class and I said 'third gender'. Because just hearing the words will spread the contagion that is bisexuality\transsexuality, and we must protect our children from this.

Farkin' idjits.

Tell your children that there is no "gay"
Tell your children not to use those words

I was here to make a Rudy Gay joke, but that seems to be covered, so...
 
2013-05-20 04:12:33 PM
I remember my parents explaining to me what gay meant when I was in kindergarten because every word out of my mouth (and all the rest of the kids) was gay-bob and queer-bait.

It didn't make me gay, but I do like the Go-Go's so I can't rule anything out.
 
2013-05-20 04:12:41 PM
There is no way I would entrust my kids with a guy that obnoxiously closeted.

What about anything that has the word 'gay' in it?

"Anti-gay activist" has the word gay in it, so by his own rules he should have nothing to do with children and the Boy Scouts in particular, right?
 
2013-05-20 04:15:12 PM
so is he for or against gaydar?

You left out women, colored folk and any protestant religion that splashes. But with such a large list, it's easy to forget a few.

I love being single. I haven't had this much sex since I was a Boy Scout leader. Er, I mean, at the time, I was dating a lot.
 
2013-05-20 04:19:06 PM
LOL.  I am well aware of this creep's work locally.

But maybe we should give his opinions serious consideration.   PolitiFact gives him 50/50.

Gaydar is out, but you can keep your Rosie O'Dometer.

As a Scout leader I'd advise anyone to keep their sons out of a troop that discusses the leaders' sexuality, whatever it is.

As I told the neighbor's kid. "Yeah, I said fark. It's just a word. People are afraid of words because they don't have the minds to get over them.
Don't you say it or some poor grownup's head will assplode.
Yeah, I said Assplode, It's just a word.
People are afraid of words because they don't have the minds to get over them.
Don't you say it or some poor grownup's will shait bricks.
Yeah, I said shiat, It's just a word. People are afraid of words because they don't have the minds to get over them".

At which point he realizes he's being lectured and says, "OKOK, ENough!! I GET IT!"

Everyone knows you can catch the gay, why else do you think Homeland Security told us all those years ago to invest in plastic sheeting and duct tape. Sometimes I have to seal up the livingtoom before it creeps in under the door and ruins my family.

CSB
I recently asked my 10 year old son if he had heard that gay marriage was now legal (we live in Minnesota).
son: "I thought gay marriage was always allowed."
me: "No, they just passed it yesterday. Gay marriage was illegal here before that."
son: "No, they've always had gay marriage. You were always able to have a happy marriage."
me: "Ha, ha, ha. No son, I'm afraid that's just a myth."

But those gay kids might like being raped by the peso Scout leaders.

He would probably think it's a slur against the Daughters of the American Revolution.

News flash from September: John Stemberger caught soliciting sex in a Denny's bathroom.

Guys like this end up being gay themselves.  So self loathing they are, they try to suppress even the very mention of it.

I bet you this guy lusts for men and just can't stand it.

A few weekends ago, at an LDS father-son camp, we sang (among many other songs) "Kookaburra sits in the old gum tree":

Kookaburra sits in the old gum tree
Merry, merry king of the bush is he
Laugh, Kookaburra! Laugh, Kookaburra!
Gay your life must be

Not one person mentioned, or had an issue with, the last line of that verse. Everyone understood the context. There wasn't any reason to censor the song. It never occurred to me that it might be an issue for someone. The kids ranged from 2 to 16 or so.

The only reason we sang it was because one of the dads was Australian. Obviously the kids were smart enough to understand the context, with the word meaning happy.
