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


Your question is interesting, and deserves some consideration, however it must be weighted against the fact that it was asked by someone who is known to be clinically insane.

stampylives: namegoeshere: 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.

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


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.

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

"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.

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."

I lol'd. I don't know if they still do group showers in schools, but as late as the early 90s (when I was in high school), that's how you showered after football practice. It was awkward because you had to do anything possible to not make eye contact with another guy's penis. I don't mean that to say that I'd be repulsed by it; it's just the unspoken rule not to be broken and sometimes when you turned around there was an unexpected dick right in front of you. After a few times in the shower you learn to just stop a giving a damn about being surrounded by penises. However, you never stared even if it was out of curiosity (half of human history can be explained as men comparing dick sizes).

"Hey Frank [whose dick is hanging out], that was an awesome punt return today."

"Thanks Alex [my dick also hanging out]." And then you just take a shower.

I imagine that groups showers no longer occur because of guys like the one in TFA being terrified that someone would be attracted to his son. Well, guess what bro - gay men have been looking at penises in group showers for as long as such showers have existed. Just as they've always been in the military and team sports. That it's 2013 and far fewer people care about teh ghey doesn't mean everyone suddenly turned fabulous overnight.

Bashar and Asma's Infinite Playlist: 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.


Yeah, it doesn't take much for some people to accuse others of "flaunting" it. What about when I dare kiss a girl in public (I'm a straight guy). Am I too "flaunting" my heterosexuality? And if so, why legions of gay people mad at me for doing it?

The good news is that by and large, these types are a dying breed. Literally and culturally. I can't remember the last person I met under a certain age that made a big deal about teh homoghey. It's 2013, dude, and the world is advancing without you whether you like it or not.

I wonder if anyone has asked the actual boys in Scouts what they think of the situation? They are most likely more sexually knowledgeable (virgins or not) than most assume. We often dismiss or underestimate the "sexual education" that kids these days are exposed to. Their voice should be heard.

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


Please elaborate on why you imagined this to be homophobic or an intended pro-gay rights statement.

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

/bigger question is why we force people to change, shower, and sometimes urinate in public

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).

"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.

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

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.

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.

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.
