Quote# 60920

QUESTION: What can I do to prevent my child from becoming a homosexual or a lesbian?

ANSWER: There is not one definite answer to your question, but there are a few things worth remembering. First, I would suggest that little boys play with little boys, and that little girls play with little girls. This not to say that little boys should never play with little girls, and that little girls should never play with little boys. It is to say that by far the majority of a child's playing should be with his own sex. So much of the sex drive is caused by the unknown. If a little boy plays with other little boys, there will be a mystique about girls, but if he plays with little girls too much, they will become commonplace and there will be a mystique toward little boys. The human race is so constructed that when something becomes commonplace, it is not nearly as attractive to us. The old adage, "The grass is greener on the other side of the fence," applies here. In childhood this grass on the other side of the fence should be the opposite sex. If it is one's own sex, there would be a curiosity about that. Now I'm aware that the modern psychologists will say, "Let little boys see little girls, and let little girls see little boys, and let them become acquainted with the biological differences, and let them see each other unclothed." Let me remind you that that same generation of modern psychologists is turning out an unbelievable amount of homosexuals in our country!

The wise parents of a little boy will teach him that the body of a little girl is sacred, and they will see to it that he plays with other little boys. As he grows older, this mystique will follow its normal course, and he will be attracted to the opposite sex or "the grass on the other side of the fence."

One of the best ways of doing this is to lead the boy to develop interests that are masculine. This means his hobbies, his activities and his interests should be masculine to the extent that it will require him to be around other boys. The same is true for little girls developing feminine interests.

Yes, limiting the amount of contact your child has with members of the opposite sex is definately a guaranteed way to stop your kid turning out gay.

You know, there's probably a reason why homosexuality is so common in single sex boarding schools. unless such stroeis are exaggerated.

Ya know, Japan keeps its kids pretty darn gender segregated. And same-sex romance among kids and teens is so common, nobody bats an eye. They usually turn out straight anyway, but I'm just sayin'...

Oh, and as a little girl I was very interested in feminine stuff. Still am, I'm about the girliest chick I know. I sure ain't straight! XD

I'm actually more horrified by the ASKER than the one giving the silly answer.

Wish I could edit... I haven't clicked on the link, so for all I know the same person gave the question and answer. Oops.

I thought that gay guys already had interests that are masculine. Namely, men.

Whoa, check this out, it came from the same site that produced the submitted quote:

"Quite often a teenager will come to me and ask me if I will spank him. When I ask him why, he says, 'My mother and dad never spanked me. I wish someone loved me enough to spank me now.'"

WAAAHAHA! Spank me, sir! I want to feel love! XD

Take him into the bedroom when daddy isn't around and teach him how to be "mommies special man". Of course this approach pre-supposes that you are decent looking, if your a 300lb cow then your probably just making things worse. [/sarcasm]

Okay, so wait, the way to keep your child from being attracted to the same gender is to encourage them to only be around that gender... all the time, in all activities, especially sports, which have shower time afterwards and they'll see numerous others of their own gender naked. Does anyone else see something a little off about this?

"The body of a little girl is sacred"

EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEW.

LOL!

As a bisexual Eagle Scout I would have to disagree with your philosophy.

I mainly hung out with other boys growing up, did masculine things (hiking, rock climbing, hunting), and yet I still am sexually attracted to guys.

Also;

"The wise parents of a little boy will teach him that the body of a little girl is sacred, and they will see to it that he plays with other little boys."

seems a bit creepy, even in context.

First of all, lesbians are, by definition, homosexuals. No need to name them separately.

Secondly, Tina and Equalist are spot-on with their respective assessments of this religious psychobabble.

Anything EXCEPT an illusionist, I'm afraid. This quote was back on the old site (although without the initial question). Hyles, mind you, is one of David J. Stewart's role models. That should speak volumes about Hyles...

a repost, or very like it.

Hyles was a moron: I remember when I was a little boy, I played with the other little boys, and eventually we played with each other....

When I hit puberty I wanted to play with the big boys - girls just didn't interest me, despite the "mystique"

I'm sorry, sexuality doesn't work that way.

Also, sexism for Jesus.

The human race is so constructed that when something becomes commonplace, it is not nearly as attractive to us.
So if a guy fucks a woman too much, he's gong to start hankerin' for man-meat? No wonder the divorce rate is so high.

One of the best ways of doing this is to lead the boy to develop interests that are masculine. This means his hobbies, his activities and his interests should be masculine to the extent that it will require him to be around other boys. The same is true for little girls developing feminine interests.

Where do the textbook butch gays who live for manly things and hobbies fit into this weird little explanation of reality? Or the femme ("lipstick")lesbians who, outside of the bedroom, live well within society's rules for what a woman should be/behave like/look like? Or what about gays and lesbians who don't fit into any of society's stereotypes?

This woman's guide is overly simplified, useless garbage.
