Quote# 12343

As far as gay couples or singles adopting; What are we thinking? Being gay is being sexually deviant to begin with. Why do we think that they are not going to molest their adopted children? I think though,that molestation would be more of a problem with the men. I think that women gay or otherwise, have an innate sense of just wanting to rear children.

When my oldest son was just 3 years old, my gay brother asked if he could take a walk with him. Now as far as I know my brother has never molested any children. At first I didn't find the request strange and let my son go with him. After all they were just taking a walk around the neighborhood. While they were gone though, I got this terrible feeling. It may have been the Holy Spirit giving me warning or just maybe my over sense of protectiveness. But I decided that if they were not back in a few minutes I was going after them. They did come back in just a few minutes, but I never got over that feeling. I determined right then and there that I would never let my young son alone with him. Now, if I could feel that way about my own brother, who I love, then something is just not right. I just don't trust gay men to not try and molest little children.

Let's not let facts get in the way of emotions, hmm?

that is the sickest & saddest thing i've heard in a long time.

and what's sicker & sadder is that she vocalised this thought, but she's far from the only one who thinks this way.

Someone needs to email her brother with this thread.. She doesn't deserve to have a brother, gay or not.

This is one sick fuck. How could she hold those kind of feelings about her own brother. Sheesh.

So waht you're saying is, your evidence that gays want to molest children is that you have a feeling? And because you have this feeling about your brother, it must be true?

<<< Why do we think that they are not going to molest their adopted children? >>>

Because we're not dumbasses, and there's no evidence to suggest a correlation between homosexuality and pedophilia?

<<< Now, if I could feel that way about my own brother, who I love, then something is just not right. >>>

You're right about that. But the problem isn't on his end.

Yes, something is obviously not right. That \"something\" would seem to be that you don't really love your brother and that you lump him in with the preconceived notions you have of what gay people are like. If you were to, say, judge him on his own merits, then perhaps that \"something\" would go away.

Then again, so very many people have trouble evaluating things individually. I can't really ask for people to learn to think critically, since I already know they won't.

You're a homophobic, ill-informed assbite. A greater percentage of child molesters are heterosexuals than the percentage of heterosexuals in the population.

I think you should change your user name to \"catchaclue.\"

Wow... I thought we would at least get some anecdotal evidence, but nope disappointed again.

It's like each fundy is a blackhole of reason and facts.

Yeah, something's just not right - inside your skull. I hope your brother sees that and disowns you.

Papabear: I would love to know where you got that statistic, because if we can verify that, we have a ready made answer to every last post linking homosexuality with child molestation. Great statistic (if, of course, it pans out).

Ah yes, the Holy Spirit, defiler of virgins, bringer of false 'righteous' bigotry, hatred, and lashings of paranoia!

Ha ha. This one made me laugh out loud. \"I had a feeling something was true and it turns out it wasn't, but I'm going to go with the feeling anyway.\" If this isn't the dictionary definition of mental retardation, it should be.

That feeling? Yeah, that's called your inner bigot shouting. It is a sign you should rethink your beliefs. And seek counciling if you can't figure out what's wrong with unfair generaliztions.

Fun fact! The majority of child boy molesting pedophiles (oddly enough, matching the percent of the population that is hetero) are otherwise completely heterosexual.

Last time I checked there where straight pedophiles to. This woman doesn't deserve family.

\"I think that women gay or otherwise, have an innate sense of just wanting to rear children\"

Because deep down, they are straight and god-fearing, but they 'become' gay just to piss you off, right?

And let me get this straight, Paranoia + bigotry + insanity = holy spirit? Hmm, good to know.

Funny... this post isn't so much \"fundamentalism in a nutshell\" as \"fundamentalism metaphor.\"

Let's not follow the evidence. The sense that you had, and was proven wrong, is far more important. In a sense it is just like the bible.

No, something isn't right. It isn't right that your brother should be stuck with a sister like you. Ugh.

The holy spirit has many manifestations, one of which seems to be mindless bigotry.

Just another example of how the Holy Spirit or Jesus or whatever conveniently gives a message only that person can detect that fully \"justifies\" their actions.

IMO, people should retain a degree of mistrust even about their relatives. Too many kids have been molested by the loved and trusted uncle or family friend, and the parents have refused to believe it. But this should just be as a back-of-the-mind acknowledgement that it wouldn't be impossible for X to abuse children, not banning loved and trusted family members from seeing your kid when there is absolutely no reason or evidence for doing so.

Remeinds me of the entry a while ago where it seemed the person was confusing the Holy Spirit with Paranoia

As far as gay couples or singles adopting; What are we thinking?


Hopefully, \"yes.\" I know you're not thinking that. At least you have the internal consistency to bar singles from adopting as well.

Being gay is being sexually deviant to begin with.


Assuming that by \"sexually deviant\" you mean \"different from you,\" then yes.

Why do we think that they are not going to molest their adopted children?


Hmm, lesse. The fact that pedophiles are almost exclusively heterosexual men? The fact that pedophiles represent a very small percentage of the population? Innocent until proven guilty of a crime? Take your pick, I've got more.

I think though,that molestation would be more of a problem with the men. I think that women gay or otherwise, have an innate sense of just wanting to rear children.


It's true that pedophiles are almost exclusively men, but where do you get the idea that all women just want to raise children? I think you've been painting with your Nadir Broad Brush. As a representative of the Acme Corporation, I'll be happy to sell you an Acme Broad Brush which is retractable (for those occasions where only a narrow brush fits) and has a Safety Bar (tm) to prevent unwanted broad-brush generalizations.

When my oldest son was just 3 years old, my gay brother asked if he could take a walk with him. Now as far as I know my brother has never molested any children. At first I didn't find the request strange and let my son go with him. After all they were just taking a walk around the neighborhood.


*music from Jaws*

While they were gone though, I got this terrible feeling. It may have been the Holy Spirit giving me warning or just maybe my over sense of protectiveness.


I'm going to take a wild stab here and say that was your hyperactive sense of protectiveness combined with your bigotry that led you to believe that your brother was a threat to your child.

But I decided that if they were not back in a few minutes I was going after them. They did come back in just a few minutes, but I never got over that feeling.


I've had those feelings too, but I've gotten over them. I used Xanax; maybe you should. It works like a charm. Plus, after a month or so, you stop getting the feelings in the first place.

I determined right then and there that I would never let my young son alone with him.


Ooh! Bad idea! I've had a brief bout of panic disorder myself, and I can assure you— it's never a good idea to rigidly avoid the perceived causes of anxiety. It only reinforces the idea that the anxiety is justified. Trust me, there will always be a new cause, no matter how many you avoid.

Now, if I could feel that way about my own brother, who I love, then something is just not right.


YES! SOMETHING IS NOT RIGHT! Listen to Maronan. He's telling you that you might wish to see a psychologist. Or a psychiatrist. They won't kill you.

I just don't trust gay men to not try and molest little children.


It's sad that your symptoms match your pre-existing bigotry. This will only reinforce them both.

Wow, that whole thread is a litany of sick and twisted posts, only 2 pages but many could have made it onto FSTDT.
