Is homosexuality common at boarding school?

The school I attended was a co-educational school. That is the boys and girls were in the same lessons. The only difference was they were in different dormitories and sports were single sex.

So place yourself in the shoes of a young child far from home. With nobody to cuddle them when they are sad or hurt. What happens - well these children have a few options.

(1)Crush any desire for affection and touch.
(2)Seek this from other children.

Many of us, who have attended boarding school from a young age, learn (1) and we will usually have gone through (2), been thoroughly humiliated then learn to do (1).

Bearing in mind that dormitories are single sex I think this answers the question of where (2) comes from.

What you are saying is one side of the coin.

So, is there anything abnormal about having to seek love, affection and intimacy from other boys your age?

Is it forcing the children to be homosexual?

Had you put them together with girls, where intimacy between boys is considered 'queer' and intimacy with girls is thrusted as 'manly', do you think this is a much better proposition for the young ones?

Are you saying that anything is reasonable if it is to help in the heterosexualization process of the boys?

My answer to this question is - no!

So I think that answers all your other questions - you do seem to have a bit of an agenda with defending homosexuality when it is not being attacked.
