Skip to comments.Homosexuals in Boy Scouts a Bad Idea

Do those who want the Boy Scouts to allow openly homosexual boys to participate understand why it's the Boy Scouts rather than the Boy and Girl Scouts? Do they think boys and girls should share tents on camp outs?
Male homosexuals claim they look at other males the way males look at females. If that is true than they sometimes look at other males as potential sexual conquests. They sometimes invade the sexual privacy of other males by imaging sexual contact with them.
I don't know if the claim is true or not. I only know that scientific research indicates homosexuals are born with the body of one sex and the brain of the other. This Gender Identification Disorder seems to create confusion about whether their behavior should be consistent with their brains or their bodies.
Heterosexual behavior is based in part on a predator / prey model. For most that is a friendly relationship like in the old song "a boy chases a girl until she catches him." The recent military scandal in which men assigned to protect women from sexual assaults assaulted them instead demonstrates that some men are unfriendly predators.
The natural sexual attraction process involves males imagining relationships with females. Sometimes these fantasies involve sexual intercourse. Human imagination sometimes becomes detached from reality with males and females imagining relationships that don't exist. A boy sharing a tent with a girl might fantasize about having some level of physical contact with her.
Would a homosexual boy sharing a tent with another boy have a similar fantasy? The important thing is that the other boy might become concerned that the homosexual boy was fantasizing about him and react violently,
Males sometimes have trouble interpreting smiles. A male can mistake a female's smile as inviting a relationship when the female is just being friendly. A similar mistake involving a male homosexual. could produce violence.
Women respond to unwanted attention as "prey" by "running away" or calling for help. Males may respond to imagined unwanted sexual attention as a predator would by launching a preemptive attack.
As boys pass through puberty they move from an attitude of "girls, yuk" to "girls, wow". Boys don't all make the transition at the same time. Boys who want to stay on good terms with friends who haven't made the transition may have to deny an interest in girls. A recent "For Better or Worse" comic strip the son is interested in a girl, but denies it when his friends accuse him of liking her. She of course over hears his statement.
An accusation of a relationship by a heterosexual boy [I'll call Billy] with a homosexual boy [I'll call Jimmy] could produce violence. If some boys say, "Billy, we hear Jimmy's sweet on you", Billy may feel he has to beat up Jimmy to prove there is no relationship.
Puberty is a difficult time for children. Separating boys and girls reduces the potential for sexual tension between them. The current Boy Scout policy of not allowing homosexual members keeps sexual tension out of scouting activities. Allowing openly homosexual boys to join would risk introducing sexual tensions that could result in violence because boys in a situation they don't know how to handle may respond violently.
The Boy Scouts should not allow adult homosexuals to supervise scouts for the same reason the Girl Scouts shouldn't allow heterosexual males to supervise girl scouts. Not only is there a potential for child molesting to occur, there is the possibility of a child making up a story about being molested. The Boy Scouts would have difficulty defending themselves from a lawsuit, even one based on false charges, if the organization knew the alleged offender was homosexual.
You might wanna dig out that Nomex, kinda stat
That's exactly why we're doing it.
Or should I say that's exactly why we're getting it shoved down our throats.
Everyone knows the Boy Scouts exists for the pleasure of the Scoutmasters.
I don’t think it is so much that homosexuals want to join the Boyscouts in droves, just like few homosexuals will actually avail themselves of traditional marriage.
Rather, they want to knock down the “traditions” of America, one-by-one. They don’t want to have them, and they don’t want others to have them - and they certainly do not want to have any judgements or controls on their behavior. Its a kind of societal vandalism.
They feel they have the right to be “in your face” flamboyant and perverse out in the open for all to see all the time.
Why can't they keep their sexual proclivities to themselves. Sexual preference isn't something that should be flaunted regardless of your orientation. I don't care what your into or what your doing behind closed doors and most heteros wouldn't get away with letting it all hang out their for the world to see and neither should gays.
I don't care if your straight, gay, polygamist, or what the heck ever.....keep it to your self.
“Self-described heterosexuals” are always homosexuals. It isn’t the self-label, it’s the behavior, that makes ‘em what they are.
They should have Boy Scouts for gays and girl scouts for Lesbians. Let’s not discriminate now.
What has really helped the BSA is the fact that fathers take their sons to the meetings and the campouts. For the most part, gays have had a difficult time because of the ever-present fathers.
Remember the words of bank robber Willie Sutton when asked why he robs banks. “Because that’s where the money is”.
Well that is exactly the reason queers want in the Boy Scouts,
because that’s where the boys are. No other day. Fresh meat for these sick bastards.
In the eighties there was a homo manifesto written where they said that they would come after our boys wherever they were - schools, camps, etc. I wondered at the time if they would get the Boy Scouts. Well, here we are and they are coming after our boys. And, to think that the president of the United States, the guy who is the honorary chairman, has his minions instigating it all forcing the outcome, well it is just almost too much to even imagine.
If there was anyone who deserved to be shot and pi$$ed on it is Barack Obama.
