Boy Scouts Postpone Decision on Gays

I can expect to get the "homophobic" emails in saying this, but, as a parent, and someone who has showered in gyms for going on 50 years I do have some concerns about the "psychological"  issues and the challenges this creates. It's not about social, physical, or  civil rights.

Consider this. Why is it that men and women use separate bathrooms and shower rooms? What about "equal access" in these circumstances? People come up with a few reasons, one of which is sexual preferences (not differences). It's not about anatomy. If, for example, a heterosexual male walked into a women's shower room and joined in, all hell would break loose! Cops would be called, a sexually related charged would be brought, and there might be a little jail time involved. What's all the fuss about? I'll leave that to the reader to figure it out.

If you come up with a similar conclusion that I did it might help understand why when sexual attraction is a part of the scenario, it may be a cause for concern.

If you disagree, then I suggest that we take up a discussion about abolishing some of these other obstacles to individual rights.
