on Boy Scouts
I have met several gay men who loved scouting, were NOT abused by the virtually exclusive heterosexual predators that populate childhood sexual abusers, and are pained greatly that they cannot contribute to the socialization of male youth through the BSA as troop leaders.
The reason? More than half the scouting troops are sponsored by the homophobic, stakes in the US operated by a "religious" community.
The potential for good that the BSA endeavors to achieve is perverted by the cover-ups, blaming of gay men, and the support of "powerful", dominant, sexist, sadistic, male figures in our culture.
