What has been found in practice is that there are people in some areas of the country who are perfectly fine with homosexuals as youth leaders, at least in the abstract
It brings to mind the phrase, "a liberal is just a conservative who has never been mugged." Unfortunately, these people are sending their kids down the dark alley in front of them.

With the result at the end of that alley being what?
That their son is assualted? The BSA maintains that there is no link between homosexuality and sexual assault of children.
Or that their son is influenced to become homosexual? That's different. But there's no evidence either way, so these parents would have to work off of what they believe. As well as whether they believe that a homosexual son is a bad outcome. My guess would be that anyone who believes that this is a possibility (and I'm not maintaining a particular position on that) would keep their kid out of a unit with homosexual leaders.
