Here's my issue with this.
We know from brain scans that gay males have more female-like brains. The reverse is true for gay females.
We don't normally allow woman to supervise boys when it's boy things they're doing, especially when the relationship is intimate like in the example
of a boy scout troop. For example, most (or all) basketball coaches for males are male themselves. This is probably not just by accident!!
What this means is that gay males should not lead boys in similar conditions. For example, a gay man should not coach a male basketball team. This is
consistent with that example.
How do you minimize the chances that the scout leader will molest your son?
First of all, to be safe, you don't want a scout leader that has any attraction to males (of any sort). If the scout leader -does- have an attraction
then you want to make sure it's not pedophilic.
These're invented numbers to express an idea:
a) Chance that a male or female scout leader is pedophile: 3%
b) Chance that a male or female scout leader is gay: 9%
What this means is that if you outright pick a male to be the boy scout leader then you're 88% sure to be safe since it's 88% likely that he will not
be gay or a pedophile.
Some more invented numbers to express an idea:
a) Chance that a gay male scout leader will molest a boy: 3%
b) Chance that a gay female scout leader will molest a boy: 0%
(this assumes that they're not pedophilic)
(... in (a) I added 3% to denote sexual curiosity even though it's not the result of pedophilia)
What this means is that if a gay boy scout leader is female, she's less likely to molest any of the boys precisely because there's no sexual curiosity
since she's attracted to females.
These (invented) numbers say that a heterosexual female scout leader would have a 3% chance of molesting a boy. Note that she's -not- pedophilic. This
3% is not based on fact, just fear. It's based on the assumption that non-pedophilic people can still molest underage persons if they're attracted to
their sex. This is the case if the relationship is close, like in the case of boy scout troops. The idea is that they become sexually curious and/or
confused by the close relationship with them.
