would it bother you for your kid to have a gay scout leader? adult content

guy friend of mine doesn't like the idea, says it's the same as if his kids were having a sleepover with a leader of the opposite sex.
it's a point to think about, but what are we going to do, start screening people on their sexual orientation then not allow them certain places like locker rooms?

admit that this one has be a bit stuck, what do you think ladies?

  • Nope. I wouldn't care. Just because they are gay doesn't mean they won't do a damn good job.

  • Wouldn't bother me a bit...unless they're talking about it during scouts for some reason, but I don't see why they would!

  • It wouldn't bother me at all. Just as long as they did a good job.

  • I refuse to even consider the idea of letting my son become a boy scout, specifically because of their anti-gay policy... I think it's ridiculous.

  • It wouldn't bother me at all. Screening for sexual orientation? I can see screening for sexual predator.

  • no it wouldnt bother me. There are plenty of coaches, teachers, and church leaders who spend alot of time with children who arent the same sex as they are. It wouldnt bother me if there was a female leading scouts so being gay isnt an issue.

  • I'm not against gays but no I would not like my son to have a gay boy scout leader! I knew of one and he sodomized two boys that were in the troop and was arrested!
