Well, i'm not exactly sure what you mean by predators. I've been hit on by gay men before. i don't consider that being hunted by a gay predator, i figure it's a complement because he thought i was good looking and hoped i played for his team. when i told him that, no, i didn't play for his team he accepted it at left me alone.
When I say "gay predator" I am thinking more of the older gays who go after the young kids fresh in the military. This could be older gays from the community surrounding the training base -- or it could be older gays within the military who will take advantage of the new kids who have not yet learned their way around the military.
Yes, like you, as an older man -- I have always been able to handle the situation with gays who approach me in bars and night clubs. These are not the predators I had in mind.
Our young people in the military have volunteered to go in harm's way to protect our way of life. We owe it to them to protect them from gay predators while they are being prepared for their duty.
That is my point -- and I believe, from personal experience, myself and friends, it is a valid point.
God bless, have a wonderful, blessed day,
