    (and sadly, much of the clueless general public) there's no such thing as sexual orientation, only sexual (genital) behavior. Thus a "gay kid" is a "kid having gay sex". When it comes to kids below the statutory age of consent, the status/conduct distinction isn't meaningless, because the response of the homophobes is "if a kid is gay, there must be something illegal going on". These people apparently never experienced sexual desire before (several years before, for most people) actually having sex (maybe the only reason they had their first sexual encounters was to impress their peers).

    The schools will probably teach kindergartners to play nice with everyone. — Will Phillips, on how marriage equality would affect education
