    I've seen these on RJ before... kind of scary way of living. Thankfully, that's not the way competent people see homosexuality anymore. The times... they're a changing! icon_wink.gif

    "Occasional homosexuals" who have caught the habit? Beyond belief.

    Funny satire. That looked a bit like the "Leave It To Beaver" house on the outside.

    I take for granted how lucky I am in my generation as a gay man. Sure we are not yet where we need to be to have equal rights but I could NOT imagine living during those times with all that crap. Too much ignorance excepted as the norm back then. I hope I get to see at least gay marriage legal in all 50 states by the end of my life. I doubt it but I can see my niece might see it with her generation (she is only one).

    Here's another anti-gay one that was shown in schools in my generation.

    EXCEPT... it almost was good, it almost could have sent the right message. Because there ARE perverted men who approach young boys, and that message needs to get out.

    BUT, there are also men who entice and molest little girls. And those men can be almost anyone, including Catholic priests, all kinds of perverts, preying on both boys and girls.

    So I'm not opposed to the guidance I myself got as a child in the 1950s: never get into a STRANGER'S car. But portraying "homosexuals" as predators of young boys is clearly false. I'd like to see a non-bigoted, non-anti-gay version of these messages (or do they already exist?) to tell kids to simply beware of strangers.

    There should be one entitled, 'You Cruise You Lose', fronted by RJ's own Cruisefinder General.

    The scary thing is, some people actually still think this way.

    Molestation of young people is more likely by familial or authority figures than a random stranger on the street. However, the media only really sensationalizes these outlier cases for profit, rather than provide children resources to deal with the more likely abuse.

    Very true. I do not know if it is the same across the pond, but here in the UK, most parents (encouraged by shit 'newspapers', like the Daily Mail) seem to be in a constant state of paranoia, believing there is a child molester hiding around every street corner. The irony is, while child abuse is relatively rare, it is far more likely to be perpetrated by a trusted person or family member, rather than by some 'dirty old man' lurking outside the school gates.
