  •  Meaning of morally straight (2+ / 0-)

    I have had a connection with Scouting for more than 50 years, and the term "morally straight" has been in there all that time and was long before.  On the other hand, the use of the term "straight" as an antonym of "gay" is far younger.

    I just read through parts of my 1990 edition of the Scouting Handbook, and wee nothing in its discussion of "morally straight" that has one thing to do with sexual preference, although I will also say that other parts tacitly assume heterosexuality without commenting on the opposite orientation, and other parts referencing the desirability of following the teachings of one's own religion in the area of sex.

    76.7% of all statistics are made up.
