Puzzled by why the older someone gets, the harder time they have seeing homosexuals as human beings? Bigotry isn’t inborn. It has to be carefully, carefully taught.
This flick, fairly representative of safety education back in the day, paints homosexuals as mentally ill, violent monsters who groom kids for molestation or flat out rape and murder them. But would you be able to think of gays as normal people if this is what you’d been force-fed as a kid?
The extra disturbing part is that it uses good advice for personal safety: don’t trust strangers, parents should know with whom their children associate, report suspicious people to the authorities. The skills being taught are correct; the application is not.
