BTW, anyone hear what happened to the black man in Pennsylvania who killed somebody in his apartment, and then went to town shooting white people, telling black people that his bullets were reserved for whites only? Did he get prosecuted with a 'hate crime'? Not that it matters. His victims are just as dead.
I hear this line an awful lot. And you know what? Jews didn't get to where they are today by holding 'jewish pride' parades, or shoving their lifestyle down peoples' throats. Or by holding 'Jewish Pride' days at schools. You want to talk persecution, there's still a few left who faced the real thing in Nazi Germany.
I saw the emoticon; I know the bit about 'first to invoke Hitler or Holocaust loses the argument' joke - but it's not a joke and can never be to some of us. Nor would I accept that it should be off-limits when appropriate to the discussion, especially in a forum for Tough Issues.
However, you've seen my posts for a year or so now, and I think you can be assured I don't invoke it lightly.
Okay, I'm off my soapbox now.
Reflecting the results of these and other studies, the mainstream view among researchers and professionals who work in the area of child sexual abuse is that homosexual and bisexual men do not pose any special threat to children.
As many as 1 in 5 to 1 in 7 boys are sexually abused. (Finkelhor, Hotaling, Lewis, & Smith, 1990; Fromuth & Burkhart, 1987, 1989, in The Male Survivor: The Impact of Sexual Abuse by Matthew Parynik Mendel, 1995, Sage Publications, USA.
Now there ya go. I wasn't implying anything. They WERE a threat to my children and they WERE to me when I was a child therefore I made a statement of what I learned. NO implications here, just a matter of fact.Allen's post implies that gay people are more likely to molest young children than straight people. That gay people prey on children, that they're somehow a threat to children.
Does it hurt you? I am not attacking anyone in any way, fashion, shape, or form, in this forum or anywhere else. But why are several people here being so quick to work on the defense of an alternate society when no defense is needed? [And I AM being careful to chose my words in a pc fashion in order to insult and/or hurt no one] I'm sure none of us neither needs nor wants instructions on a lifestyle which many consider a revolting abberation.All of which has been shown times over to be false. The gay child molester is a sterotype used to discriminate against gays and lesbians. It's offensive and hurtful.
There are enough father and step-father abuses against daughters and step-daughters that would tend to shake that tree a little.And if sexual orientation is no factor in sexual abuse, why choose a same sex victim? A sad fact:
