The Homosexual Superhumans and the BSA **Bumped**
So, the Boy Scouts of America is contemplating letting openly gay men serve as Scout leaders?This is the dumbest thing I've heard gay rights advocates push for -- ever. The idea that a gay man should go camping with a bunch of teenage boys? Yeah, that's insane. Not because homosexuals are predatory by nature. Not because they are going to lure impressionable youths into the gay lifestyle. Foolishness, all. Gays aren't any worse than the next man when it comes to normal human impulses. But they certainly aren't any better. Would you let me take your 14 year old daughter camping? Kind of seems inappropriate. So, you acknowledge that no matter how decent of a guy I might be, because I am a normal man subject to normal male passions, it's probably not a great idea for me and my buddy -- let's say, Howie -- to take a group of 14 - 15 year old girls on a camp out. Don't forget to bring a pillow for the mandatory pillow fight! It's creepy. Yet somehow homosexual men are exempt from normal male passions? Gay men aren't tempted by 14 - 15 year old boys? To believe this is to believe that gays are better than straights. That gays are, in fact, superhuman. That's what the idiots who think gays should be allowed to lead Scout troops fundamentally believe. Yes, it is discriminatory to not let gays lead Scout troops. It's also discriminatory to not let men lead Girl Scout troops. Some discrimination has a basis in fact, experience, and human nature. An adult male that is attracted to a teenage girl is not, in fact, a child molester or pedophile. A pedophile is one who is attracted to prepubescent children. And while some Boy Scouts are in their per-adolescent years (Cub Scouts), camping trips are usually limited to older Scouts -- those who are squarely in their teen years. It is normal for adult males to be attracted to teenage girls. While this attraction may be normal, acting on these attractions certainly isn't since sexual maturity isn't necessarily connected to social maturity, moral maturity, or psychological maturity. This is why we have statutory rape laws and why even consensual relationships of this type are considered immoral and are therefore illegal. And it's why we all think it would be creepy if Howie and me took your teenage daughters camping. Because you know that we are human beings subject to normal human passions. I can't speak for Howie, but I can promise you that your daughters would be safe with me. Double pinkie swear! Actually, I'm not kidding. Your daughter really would be safe with me. Nevertheless, you wouldn't even consider the offer even if you knew this to be the case because: a) it looks bad; b) even if we never acted on our impulses it creeps you out as to what we might be thinking; c) you wouldn't want to put us into a position where we were even tempted. Further, I would never make the offer because ... I'm not a retard. Also, what if it turns out that your daughter is a psycho and I have to rebuff her advances? It could happen! Then it's her word against mine as to who acted inappropriately. Neither of us wants to be in that position. The last time I checked, such a thing as the "gay teenager" actually exists. For all these reasons it's simply unfathomable that either of us would even consider such a situation. But .... not homosexuals? In one breath we are told that gays are no different than other men, and in the next we are told that they are better than the rest of us. I am willing to concede that gay men are no more likely to act inappropriately with teenagers than are straight men. But are you willing to concede that they are not less likely to act inappropriately? Because if you aren't, then you don't believe in gay equality. You believe in gay superiority and the two of us simply do not live in the same universe. Obligatory Canteen Boy video below.
Sorry, but I can't accept your assertion that there's anything even close to normal about homosex. This assertion seems to be getting more and more common (does that make it normal, too ?) these days, but I've noticed that it never seems to be accompanied by anything I could confuse with a rationale. I don't know what your concept of sex is but, to paraphrase, a man's rectum needs a penis in it like a fish needs a bicycle.
Let me share a bit of folk wisdom from the Bronx of my youth. It's an exit, not an entrance or, somewhat more coarsely, an a-hole is not a p-hole.

How can this be so difficult to understand? It is the agenda the homosexual lobby has been 'pushing' from the start. Is this desire a one hundred percent homosexual population aim? Probably not.
But the same can be said about the Muslim population. The percentage of those who do not want to kill us is probably there. Granted, it is small. And that percentage would be OK with killing us if that is what happens.
Having said that, I wonder why the sane, honorable homosexuals, and for that matter the corresponding like Muslims, stand up and fight the others they 'claim' do disagree with?

There is one fallacious assumption in your article:
It is well documented that homosexual men are FAR more promiscuous and impulsive than straight men

Perhaps you haven't noticed, "Today is all about the gay". You can't turn the TV on without having it shoved in your face.
Being from the Midwest I was shocked by the public exploitations I witnessed in Key West Florida. Holding hands, grabbing ass and full mouth kissing on the streets was the norm for fags. Actions long deamend inappropriate for hederosexual couples in a public environment. But gays need it. They need to exploit.They need to offend. It is a big part of just being gay.

With men it is sex first, socialization second. With women it is exactly the opposite.

What about the right of the majority? The parents who would worry and last the children who could and sooner or later be the victims.

Roughly equal numbers of girls and boys are sexually abused by adults every year. Almost all offenders are men.
Gays make up somewhere between 1% and 10% of the population, depending on whose numbers you believe. Let's say it's on the high side, 10%, and for the sake of argument, half are men, half are women.
So do the math...45% of the population(straight men) are responsible for sexually abusing about half the sexually abused children (girls), BUT the other 5% (gay men) are responsible for abusing the other half (boys). Sad numbers indeed.
So, suffice it to say you don't want your teenage daughters left alone with straight men, and you don't want your teenage sons left alone with gay men.

Gays and lesbians are changing the country to suit and favor them.
Muslims are changing the country to suit and favor them.
Muslims will, as they do, hang the gays ans stone the lesbians. Problem solved! Win-Win & We Lose!

Cub Scouts run from first to fifth grades, or about 6 to about 11. Boy Scouts start at 11 (or 10.5 if the Cub is crossing over to Boy Scouts).
So Boy Scouts run from 11 to 18, which leaves plenty of room for someone so inclined to find an "attractive" age group.
As a scout leader, we are never alone (out of line of sight) with a scout that is not our child. We have preferably another adult, or at least several other scouts. Also, a man who shows up without a child gets looked at pretty closely. Without a substantial personal background in scouting - like an Eagle Scout who would like to link up with a troop after settling into a new job, you won't be working too closely with many troops. On any outing, we have 3 to 5 adults, and maintaining proper distribution of adults is pretty easy to do. We watch the scouts closely for good behavior and safety anyway.
Even in the case of a post-graduate Eagle offering his time, the question of why you would be spending a lot of time with teenagers would need a good answer. Most young adults have many more things to occupy their time.
@Big Al - we get a lot of boys who don't have a steady adult male in their life whether it's a broken marriage or heavy work commitment or whatever. If they do have a strong adult male presence, we usually get both the boy and the dad. It's a volunteer organization, and adults with time and skills to share are welcome. Adults in my troop include a marine now working security, a local businessman, a couple engineers, two school teachers, a plant operator, and a work control planner. Oh yes, and the local DA (although he no longer makes as many meetings as he used to - he is an outstanding man).

According to what I read, the scouts (BSA) would allow sponsoring organizations to decide the matter. Which opens the door to gay leaders if the sponsoring organization (liberal church for example) will allow it. That is the opposite of "leadership" in my opinion.
I have never seen a better explanation of the issue than Rusty's. (Late congrats on the PhD.)
