    I agree, but I don't think Maggie was claiming all gay men are flamers, more that the gay flamer isn't exactly some type of myth.

    Yep, sure do.

    two new changes following this announcement:

    1. The boy scout's most prestigious award will no longer be "Eagle Scout". It will be replaced by the "Flamingo Scout"

    2. The Webelos will be renamed the "Weblows"

    Boy Scouts' venue is not the classroom. Classrooms don't help boys turn into men; boy scouts does.

    Yeah, but kids are still kids. You know, they are still assholes to each other, disregard authority when they can, etc

    Many gays fit that "myth", but not all and those others can't be leaders no matter how manly they are. And some straight men (like the one I described earlier) fit the description of being overly feminine/not manly. If it were all about the appearance of being a positive or negative male role model, then you/she would have a point. But one of the main things that shows this isn't the real reason is the very fact that women (a good amount in fact) are scout leaders. They are not going to be "good male role models" when they aren't even men.

    From their site:

    Yes. Every leadership position is open to women. In fact, more than one-third of Scout volunteers are women.

    But isn't this one of the reasons the BSA exists to begin with, to try to teach boys not to act like assholes to each other?

    What? What about a "Culture war", how does that at all relate to my comment which you quoted? Not coherent in the slightest.
