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


Please.  All the gays I know have more class than that.

BMFPitt: There is no way I would entrust my kids with a guy that obnoxiously closeted.


It's amazing to me when people say something this stupidly homophobic and thinking that it's somehow a pro-gay rights statement.

Katolu: teenage mutant ninja rapist: 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.

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


Ohhhh, pedo...Autocorrect got me.

"You look at anything that has the word 'gay' on it in our culture," Stemberger explained, "A gay magazine, a gay blog, a gay website, a gay parade, you name it, it's gonna be guaranteed to be inappropriate for kids."


---
What about the gay kids though?

Pretty much every movie I watched until I was 15 or so was basically a heterosexual love story.

And yet somehow I didn't turn out hetero-sexual. Self-loathing and partially suicidal maybe but it didn't change my sexuality at all.

God, it's almost like their entire argument is bullshiat.

What about queer? Is queer still ok to use?

ISO15693: 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.


As opposed to the other version, which talks about the Queen of the bush.

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

THIS


That.  I'm very happy I was in a troop that really didn't care one way or another.  Perhaps it helped that our troop was not sponsored by a church, or any other organization for that matter so we had nobody to answer to.
 
2013-05-20 04:30:23 PM
I've been described as a pervert and deviant.   I'm straight, married for over a year, been with only one woman for the past 5 years.  Anyone can be a filthy perv, "the gheys" don't have that market cornered.  (But I'm also one of those crazy equal rights guys, so maybe I'm just part of the deviant crowd).
 
2013-05-20 04:30:43 PM
After all, forcing sexual repression, while leaving the repressed in a position of power over youths, has worked so well for the Catholic church.
 
2013-05-20 04:31:17 PM
We're talking about injecting hyper-sexuality and a leftist political agenda right into the veins of the Boy Scouts and it will utterly devastate it

Really this is all they are concerned about, properly brainwashing the children.

If gays should be allowed in the scouts, why exactly do we make boys and girls change in separate locker rooms?

Not such different anatomies that they need separate locker facilities. Men and women both put their pants on one leg at a time.

"older boys should not be allowed to talk about sex with younger boys"

sounds like sound policy

"They want to inject and flaunt their sexuality."  "We're talking about injecting hyper-sexuality and a leftist political agenda right into the veins of the Boy Scouts."

Sounds like he's got something on his mind.

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


A straight scout leader could say, "My wife and I camped here last summer," without raising an eyebrow.  A gay scout leader (LOLWUT?) could not say, "My husband and I went camping here last summer," because that would be discussing their sexuality.

xria: "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?


My thoughts exactly, and in that particular case I totally agree him.  I don't want anti-gay activists anywhere near my kid.

BitwiseShift: 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'm left-handed and gay, so I'm getting a kick.

did your autocorrect turn "vacation" into "sexuality" at the end there, or are you just an asshole?

Mr. Stemberger is correct. I am promoting a radical agenda; one I lifted from the Declaration of Independence... "all men are created equal".

exick: 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.


No kidding. My takeaway from being in Scouts was that it was political and social in nature.

What the hell are you babbling about?? The op said that scout leaders should not discuss their sexuality with the scouts. I said, such a small thing as mentioning a same-sex spouse could be interpreted as discussing sexuality, although a straight scout leader mentioning his wife would not be seen as discussing his sexuality.

I always wondered why Sodom got a cool sexual term named after it, but Gomorrah didn't? At least, I never hear anyone call someone a gomorrite or talk about gomorrizing someone, anyway...
