My Little Finger....(and I know a lot of Scouts, Scout Masters,
and Fathers of Scouts who would enjoy feeling the joys of that
digit strategically placed!)
**********Not Your Daddy's Gay Pride**********
change from "Scouts" to "B.S.," because that's just what they're
And I'm sick to death of all these prissy, pissy apologists talking
shit about "Well, the Scouts have a lot of great stuff to offer kids,
so one issue isn't worth getting upset over!" Really, Uncle Tom
Treating an entire (huge) group of people (do you know how
disproportionately high the number of scouts that are gay is!?!?)
as second class citizens, instilling in them the notion that hiding
who they are and suppressing their true self is the way to get
treated well and included, and spreading/enhancing myths
that create a divide in gay and lesbian people's lives...making
them feel unloved, unwanted, unimportant.
Gay depression, dysfunction, and suicidology doesn't just
whip itself up in a vacuum; it is produced through constant
alienation and abuse. To have an organization with the history,
the pull, and the austerity of the Boy Scouts take a formal
position on homosexuals--of all ages--and flatly tell them;
-You do not belong here
-We do not want you here
-You are separate from us
-We don't believe that you're capable of the virtues we say we represent
upstanding citizens; it's a continuation of misinformation and bias.
What a great basis for good solid, all-American values (well, the
real and shattered America, yes, but not the fake wonderful
American ideal we all pretend exists.)
See, the tacit understanding is that homosexuals have some-
thing wrong with them; that we are wrong. That we are sexually
unbound demons who can't be trusted either around those our
own age or those in our care. It's more of this ignorant,
prejudicial, gay-panic bullshit that I think is mostly pretended
for the sake of denying us access to places, not because
people are still ignorant enough to actually link homosexuality
with pedophilia (which has been proven time and again to be
invalid, ) but because they're uncomfortable with their own sexuality.
No, the Boy Scouts caved to pressure from the Reich once more, for if they were questioning lifting the ban then they
had reason to doubt that it is either Constitutional or moral.
So much for being judged on the merit of individual character.
Ascribing a character trait to an entire group of people is
beyond unseemly, and it certainly does undermine 'all the
other good' that the Scouts may do. Because as long as
some of us are unequal, baby...all of us are unequal.
