Jeremy your posts are naive.
You're free to stop reading or responding to them if they bother you so much. Really, I wouldn't mind.
If you think sexuality is something one states in creeds and mottos, then well, there is no point going on here.
I was responding to your idea that "the Scouts is all about sexuality". There's no sexuality in the Scouts Creed, so I think you're reading something into the organization's goals that isn't meant to be there. But I agree that there is no point in conversing with you.
The BOY Scouts.
Good job! It is the Boy
Scouts! You're good at this.
That is just the beginning of the sexualization of that group. Why segregate the girls and boys in the first?
I'm assuming they probably teach boys and girls different skills, as boys and girls are different from one another in some ways.
Note, you didn't respond to my "cute" point.
You didn't say anything worth responding to.
If Bobby talks about his crush on a girl. It is cute. What if Bobby has a crush on a boy?
What if? I don't care. That doesn't make Bobby having a crush on a girl instead of a boy "nonsense".
Coming out is not an act homosexuals do because they are gay. Do heterosexuals come out? No. They have a pretty standard and socialized narrative about how to engage in the larger body politic of family and society about their sexual lives.
Yep. That's what happens when you're part of the 90%+ of the society that is not gay. That's the majority/minority dynamic at work. It's not specific to gay people. My brother's a vegetarian and often has to explain to people why he doesn't eat meat. I'm an Orthodox Christian and I have to explain to people why I'm that and not Protestant or Catholic (and further explain in certain religiously-literate environments why I'm Oriental Orthodox, not Eastern Orthodox). These are all a part of being a minority, but they don't make being a heterosexual, meat-eating carnivore anything other than normative in American society. That's why we have to explain things about ourselves when they're not the usual. Some have more to explain than others, and some things are more socially-accepted than other things.
Sexual "identity" is always being addressed by straight folks. Always. Nearly every moment.
Nope. When I go out to eat, I'm not expressing my sexuality. When I pray, I'm not expressing my sexuality. Not everything in life has to do with who I (or whoever) might be sexually attracted to. Gay people do that stuff, too, without having it be about how they're gay. I would wager, living in a relatively liberal city as I do, that I probably run into many more gay people in the average day than I could identify as being gay. Most people, gay or straight, are just people going about their daily lives. Several of the people I have known who have "come out" as gay were not obvious (though there were several others who were), and several more who everyone in my social circle had assumed were gay turned out not to be. Go figure.
This is thinking 101. Come on. Aren't past these obviouslys yet?
Who is past the what in where now?
Being gay is "normative". (Thanks for you using part of my name.)
No it isn't. Something is normative if it is establishing or deriving from the/a standard. Since gay people make up a very small percentage of any given society, by definition being gay is not normative. This isn't about gay people being "freaks" or anything like that, just a statistical observation that most people are not gay, and if we are to take the majority of a given society as establishing what is normative in that society (in the sense of "most people in location X have/don't have characteristic Y"), then being gay can't possibly be normative (just like most people in the world, statistically, aren't African-American, aren't left-handed, aren't Orthodox Christian, etc).
People are gay. It is normal. It's been going on for a long time.
The fact that people are gay doesn't make being gay normative. Colorblind amputee Eskimos exist, too (probably), but there is no way that they can be described as normative in a statistical sense.
Whether you think it is a sinful or whatever is something else.
