While I do not think this should be used to infer that gays are pedophiles which is clearly untrue, it does speak to the fantasy gays put out that they are always perfect model people...
pretty soon, gays will have to admit they can be terrible people just like everyone else...

Not one Gay or Lesbian person on these threads has EVER stated they are perfect and above reproach......there are good and bad folks in every walk of life........and typically it is the anti-gay folks that keep assaulting Gays and Lesbians, especially Gay men with regards to Child Molestation........and frankly, that's a lie!!!!

In my opinion......regardless of sexual orientation.....HARM A CHILD......face sever consequences regardless of the gender of the child!!!

More crap from people who have pea brains and use incidents to infer a trend or correlation.

Of course there are gay men who are pedophiles just as straight men can be pedophiles. But there is no scientific evidence showing a higher level of pedophilia among openly gay men. Furthermore, if the subject of the attraction is pre-pubescent, pedophilia may be unrelated to sexual orientation - typically the offender is attracted to children of either sex.

they do it immediately upon being asked to compare gays and straights...
so we can all agree that in that comparison, a gay COULD be a drug addict or pedophile, right?

Are the gays now backpedaling on their claims of gay supremacy?

Technically speaking yes, but remember that a Pedophile does not necessarily have an adult sexual orientation......they are by definition attracted to children under puberty.......and if the child is over the age of puberty......they are typically not a Pedophile, but a Hebephile.

Pedophilia and hebephilia are diagnostic labels that refer to psychological attractions. Not all pedophiles and hebephiles actually molest children; an adult can be attracted to children or adolescents without ever actually engaging in sexual contact with them.

Child molestation and child sexual abuse refer to actions, and don't imply a particular psychological makeup or motive on the part of the perpetrator.

Remember that just because a man molests a boy......it doesn't make it a homosexual act nor does it make the perpetrator Gay and that is an issue most don't understand!!!

What "GAY" Supremacy? Gays and Lesbians are just regular every day people who want to live their lives like any other American Citizen.....like getting married, possibility having children or raising children, being a family.....why is that so damn difficult for you to comprehend?

I don't deny any of this...

That myth is in your head. I have never seen anyone post on these threads that ALL gays have any one characteristic in common.

And I've already answered that.....now, it appears you don't like the response......but in reality.....Pedophiles are neither Gay or Straight......though some will identify as heterosexual!!!

Assuming he survives his injuries, he's probably going to go to prison. That being teh case, I wonder if his new husband is going to divorce him.

Do you think a person should divorce a spouse if teh spouse is convicted of such a crime ?

What's stopping heterosexual suicides? Oh right, nothing. Those still happen.

For at LEAST the past 40 years (as far back as I could find teh statistis for) the number of suicides in teh U.S. each year has exceeded the number of homicides in the U.S. each year.

And for at LEAST the past 40 years teh number of deaths in the U.S. each year caused by motor vehicles has exceeded the number of homicides in teh U.S. each year.

Since motor vehicles cause more deaths each year of innocent people than do guns, perhaps we should ban all motor vehicles. That makes sense, rite ? <s>

It's male sexuality,read chapter 11 in the 1995 book,A Mind To Crime.

I don't think anyone denies there are good and bad people regardless of sexual orientation. I don't think anyone should have be model citizens to be worthy of equal/civil/constitutional human rights, the right to marry, not be fired from their job or denied service/benefits/protection, etc. simply because they are gay. Some of the most evil people in the world have the right to marry the opposite gender, but the right to marry the person one loves has been and still is denied to a majority of gays and lesbians in most of the United States and the world. The man was charged with child porn according to the title, he wasn't convicted. I believe in innocent until proven guilty. I don't consider fleeing or committing suicide an admission of guilt. Some people in those situations may not want to live with the shame of the publicity of their arrest or the chance of being convicted when they are indeed innocent.
