  •  Kids are only confused (0+ / 0-)

    because adults make them that way.  Why would you have to give a detailed explanation to a toddler?

    •  Of course you would not tell kids about that (0+ / 0-)

      I used this very argument against people who would express fear of homosexual Boy Scout leaders.

      When asked why, it was because they did not want the sexuality stuff brought up.

      Well, I would carefully explain to them, I didn't want any scout leader talking to my kids about any sexuality stuff, heterosexual or homosexual.

      And if the sexual activities of the scout leader, of ANY scout leader, was out of bounds, then what would be the problem with a homosexual being a scout leader?

      They would then hem and haw, and eventually get back to the 'exposing the kid to homosexuality' LIE again. And I would once again say that I didn't want any scout leader talking about their sexual activities with my child. I would them ask them why it was okay for a heterosexual person to talk about THEIR sexual activities with these parents' scouts, and they would deny that they were willing to have heterosexuals talk to their children that way.

      So, once again, I would point out that if there is no discussion of sexual activity going to happen, then what was the problem?

      Most cannot answer that question, because all that's left is their unfounded prejudice against gays at that point, but a couple of them would then assert that gays were either more likely to talk to their kids about sexual activity than straights were, which of course is true, or they would bring up pedophilia, which of course has nothing to do with sexual orientation EITHER.

      ...but not your own facts.
