Responding to this video by Rob Tisinai, R.L.G at DiA follows the stated concerns of anti-gay activists to logical conclusions:

[E]ven if you accept that abuse of boys is a gay act (which I most certainly don't, but this is for the sake of argument) and protecting children is your overriding concern, the fastest way to stop child abuse is to demolish the closet. No closet, no stigma, and all those closeted men will stop abusing boys and head down to the Jolly Farmer and meet a grown-up. Again, this isn't going to happen because a) paedophilia is not a gay thing, it is a clinically disordered attraction to children, usually of both sexes, and b) because the people making these claims will never abandon their prejudice, even if it would save children.

Tisinai follows up on the video here.
