Pro-gay: There is nothing wrong with homosexuality.

Anti-gay: AIDS!

Pro-gay: AIDS is also caused by dirty needles and heterosexual sex.

Anti-gay: Gay people are more promiscuous, so they make AIDS a bigger problem.

Pro-gay: AIDS is spread mostly by straight people.

Anti-gay: Gay sex is inherently more risky than heterosexual sex.

Pro-gay: You're a bigot.

Anti-gay: You're immoral/damned.

I'm tired of seeing the same debate a thousand times. What can be done to change the dialogue?

The relatively new phenomenon of "hooking up" is, I suppose, more a phenomenon of college age girls than the teens. But between raising a daughter and being in the business of photographing girls (18+) I've overheard more than I really wanted to.

BTW, if girls have sex due to peer pressure, doesn't that imply that their peers are having sex?

Of course they are, but must you always twist my words and stray away from the original point? The original point was that guys are quicker to engage in meaningless sex than girls. Of course both genders do it but generally guys tend to do it more than girls

And by "peers," don't we mean other girls who are having sex?

Okay. I deny that guys are quicker than girls to engage in meaningless sex. For one thing, teen girls frequently have "meaningless sex" with other girls before their first heterosexual experience even though they aren't really lesbian, as a form of rehearsal. Boys pretty much never do this. If a boy has sex with another boy he is gay, very bisexual, or confused.
