Boy Scouts

I was a heterosexual long before my first sexual experience.

My attraction to members of the opposite sex came from something deeply rooted in me since birth. I was wired to be heterosexual.

The same goes for homosexuals. They were wired to be gay or lesbian.

Whether or not a gay gene, a set of gay genes, or some other biological mechanism is ever found, one thing is clear: The environment a child grows up in has nothing to do with what makes most gay men gay. Two of the most convincing studies have proved conclusively that sexual orientation in men has a genetic cause.

Therefore, I want to stress that children, teenagers, and young adults who grow into gay or lesbian adults did not make this choice on their first sexual experience. They were homosexually wired from birth.

I say this because of the hoopla concerning the Boy Scouts and hearing people say that children shouldn’t be having sexual contact at that age to begin with. Again, having sexual experience does not make one gay or straight.

Allowing two individuals of the same sex attend a prom together is not giving them permission to indulge in sexual activity—no more so than you would by sending your daughter off to the prom with the football captain.

Whether heterosexual or homosexual, these are still boys—and they should be treated as such. These kids are not asking for extraneous privileges. They are not asking for a special patch to sew on their uniform…they are only asking for equality.
