That took so much time and thought I'd almost consider having a discussion with you... First consider reading some but before that you require an education come back then. I don't play well with ignorant people.

So, let me get this straight (no pun intended) its ok to not weed out the cho mos, in the scouts......but it's not ok to know the scout masters sexual orientation.
And why is it so important to know their sexual preference anyway?.....do you know your kids teachers preferences?....your preachers, bus drivers,....
Cho mos keep their preference a secret......Bastards.

Straight folks act on their tenancies - the good and the bad - every day, don't they? ALL people do. And as long as they aren't hurting anyone else, that's perfectly okay.

When they cross the line and harm other people, they need to be squashed like the insects they are.

It's not a gay or straight thing. It's a human thing.

Wow! You actually are starting to make a little sense now.
Squashed is a little harsh but at least you're seeing what I've been trying to portray all along.
Now, how can a pair of men of the ss qualify as representing parenthood? Said child is certain to be deficient of a female motherly companionship, nurturing, and intimacy in the child's most indelible years of their lives. In fact it is a child's basic human right to have a male father and female mother to ensure proper balance.
Too bad the dark forces of the world rule our nation through and through.
There is no hope.

Not at all
.
Gay guys are born with the same sex orientation 'you' were born with; attracted to men just like you
.
So if you have raised children of your own; you should understand instinctively how they would go about raising children
.
Can you figure it out now?

Brain defects as well.
It troubles me on a daily basis. The sad part about it all is those that have no children and could care less or comprehend what the hell this whole issue is all about. This is frightening and they are frightening.

Does this include child molesters? Because soon they will band together and have their rights also. The National Center on Child Abuse and Neglect has records of 55,399 cases of children being sexually molested in one year.

Unfortunately, it very well could. This is exactly why I could care less about what the psychologists have to say in regards to gays and pedos.

We don't have to worry about the molesters themselves banding together, the psychologists are coming to their defense. James Cantor is one of the gay psychologists who's giving pedophiles the "born that way" excuse. Fred Berlin, along with many other psychologists with the B4U-ACT wants Pedophilia to be removed as a mental disorder. These psychologists encourage pedos to be called "minor-attracted" to erase the stigma associated with being a pedo.

Any of this sounding familiar? Just wait...

Damn the facts, let's go with the irrational, ugly, mean-spirited stereotypes and pretend that real heterosexuals won't do this. It doesn't matter that is the same obscene closed-minded mind set that filled their pervert files in the first place, we gotta protect the kids from the gay ones.

Dear, psychology is a field which often causes controversy as it explores popularly held assumptions about how the human mind can work. Yes, there are those who have raised the "born that way" theory for pedophilia and have even advocated for it. The truth is that the field has yet discover what actually makes a pedophile tick, there is no one size fits all explanation for them to exist. "Born that way" is merely one of a myriad of possibilities that the field will sort through in an effort to help these people and keep them from doing harm. Do you really imagine that psychologists want pedophiles out molesting children?

You would have to ask "them" if they even think child sex is harmful, or if it is just western colonial society oppressing the "sexual rights of children". I couldn't tell you what's going on in their sick twisted minds.

You claimed to have read about the work of those who have proposed this particular theory, you tell me what they have to say. I'm not up on the latest fringe thoughts in psychology. I've just kept up with that which they are able to prove on the subject.

FYI, the notion that a child should be 16-18 years old before they legally have sex is actually a fairly modern one. Prior to the turn of the 20th Century, the oldest age of consent in this country was all of 14, Delaware even allowed men to thank heaven for little girls as young as 10. The change was brought about by the children's rights movement of the late 19th and early 20th century, that got kids out of hazardous employment, into schools and de-sexualized them, whether puberty agreed or not.

"Dear" psychology is a work in progress. There are few absolutes within the theories. Forty years ago when psychology was in its infancy, a well lettered psychologist labeled a young man as the product of a cold and detached mother because he had some odd behaviorisms and repetitive movements. That couldn't have been further from the truth and it put his family through hell. Later in his mid life he was diagnosed with Asberger's syndrome. Psychology is not an exact science, it's an interpretation by a particular observer.

There was a time when psychologists who thought homosexuality wasn't a mental illness, were considered fringe. Just how long will these presently considered fringe thoughts in psychology remain fringe? I don't want to know. Sick!

They have discredited the theory of gay being a psychological disorder since the "patient" could function in the areas of speech thought and carry out general everyday tasks.

Yet, these are the same people who are all too quick to label children with disorders and prescribe psycho meds to them. Sometimes, just because parents or teachers either don't want to deal with them or have been prevented from doing so. The children are usually the ones who fall victim to the piss poor theories of a group of people who have thought and taught themselves into a realm of insanity. They put the "psycho" in psychotherapy, and I don't buy their BS.
