I have stated that I would not let my daughter go on an overnight camping trip with a homosexual female (i.e. lesbian) scoutmaster.
My reasoning for not allowing my teenage daughter to be put into a potentially inappropriate sexual situation is the same in both above accounts.
Furthermore, I answered to Disillusioned_1 that I would allow my daughter to go on an overnight camping trip with a homosexual male scoutmaster.
My positions are completely rational and have nothing to do with homodisgust or homohate.
The word homophobia is blatantly disingenuous, and I refuse to partake in the furthering of that agenda.
Rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others. I do not add "within the limits of the law" because law is often but the tyrant's will, and always so when it violates the rights of the individual.
