Are gay boys not boys? A look at the cruelty the equal Scouting opponents engender

by Jeremy Hooper

Spotted at one of last Friday's "On My Honor" rallies against inclusive Boy Scouts. This was posted to the On My Honor coalition's official Facebook page:

So apparently it's not enough to deny gay boys and men of our worthwhile orientations. Some of these adults, who have every right and reason to know better, are trying to deny gay boys of their very boyhood. End result: More nasty messaging that tells some of the most vulnerable children in our population that they were born into some sort of "other" class that falls outside of the "acceptable" spectrum.

I like to think that if adults like the one in this picture knew how hurtful this kind of stuff is (and especially to the young psyche), they wouldn't be so quick to put marker to poster board and aggression to ignorance. I have to think that because the alternative is too hard to swallow.
