Jeremy your posts are naive.
If you think sexuality is something one states in creeds and mottos, then well, there is no point going on here.
The BOY Scouts.
That is just the beginning of the sexualization of that group. Why segregate the girls and boys in the first? That is done explicitly out of sexual reasons. That is not a criticism. Everything is sexualized. It HAS to be. We are SEXUAL from birth and before. Not just in terms of some arrangement of chromosomes, but how we interact with the world.
To further explore the weird and odd fetishism of "scouting" would be a WASTE of time here.
Note, you didn't respond to my "cute" point.
Your ridiculous Thanksgiving comment.
If Bobby talks about his crush on a girl. It is cute. What if Bobby has a crush on a boy?
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.
Gay folks DON'T have that. Thus once they come of age so to speak, if they want to live a some what sane life, it seems they might want to be able to express what straight people can and do from moment one of conception. Yes. Conception. That child is already sexualized. People project the dreams and fantasies of that person's sex life forward. Proms, Weddings, Grandchildren, etc.
Sexual "identity" is always being addressed by straight folks. Always. Nearly every moment.
Straight people are constantly showing their sexuality. Constantly. We just are so used to it as for it to become transparent.
This is thinking 101. Come on. Aren't past these obviouslys yet?
To the odd sexualization of scouting, well if it ain't clear if not precise, I dunno what to say.
But can we please stop acting like homosexual are imposing upon us. If they are it is a necessary structure as long as being homosexual is regarded as being alien, foreign, bad, non-normative.
Being gay is "normative". (Thanks for you using part of my name.)
People are gay. It is normal. It's been going on for a long time.
Whether you think it is a sinful or whatever is something else.
For every gay or non-awesomely-straight person like myself, I am sorry for the tone of the board lately regarding your person. It is nothing other than revolting.
