    "normal" straight men.  It is more about power than sex.  
    I'm a survivor of sexual assault by my maternal grandfather, a Lutheran deacon.  He was a classical serial pedophile who incestually assaulted some of his children & grandchildren.  I've written professionally about the medical & psychological issues for survivors  

    The research indicates that gays are no more likely to sexually assault kids than straights.

      and there are just too many stupid people out there that are convinced that pedophiles are gay.
      Or if gay parents raise children, they too will be gay.
      Why can't people understand that most gays come from straight parents?  

      Gitmo is a Concentration Camp. Not a Detention Center. Torture happens at Concentration Camps. Torture happens at Gitmo. How much further will US values fall? Where is YOUR outrage at what the United States does in OUR names?
