    Maybe they go to the high school dance with another boy

    You realize Buffy the Vampire Slayer ended a decade ago, right?

    The "tweens" would have been between 3 and 13 or so when the series ended.

    On this issue, it's adults, particularly the older adults, who are being cruel
    While polling does indicate the "younger" generation is more accepting of homosexuality, I haven't seen many polls define that as what we would consider children. usually it's something like people under 50, or 35

    So? They were still at scouts for a reason, to learn specific skills. It is much easier to curb "teasing" when you have something to distract with, such as learning things the kids want to learn, things the scouts teach. If a scout or several are more interested in teasing others than they are learning those skills, they can be kicked out of scouts much easier than they can be kicked out of school. We are only discussing what goes on at scouting events, not at school. Afterall, this decision only affects scouting events, not what goes on outside of scouts.

    Yes, I'm aware. I thought it was obvious that since I was referencing a show a decade ago, I was also referencing people that were teens a decade ago.

    So, tweens and high schoolers were teens a decade ago?

    What the heck type of messed up high school did you get your diploma from?

    Because as another poster pointed out, many of the scouts went to the same school and especially older, teenage scouts, will start relationships that they may even talk about casually while at events. "I have a date with my girlfriend" or "I met this girl" are very casual pieces of conversation, that reveal a person's sexuality without being overt about it. A gay scout would be more likely to say "I have a date with my boyfriend" or "I met this guy", which is a red flag that they are gay but not really any sort of actual discussion about their sexuality.

    Well your argument was that they would be interacting in scouts. My point is they will also be interacting outside of it. It's like school bullying, which doesn't usually happen in the middle of a teachers lesson

    Do you have a reading comprehension?

    Let me restate this in the hope it gets to that head of yours:

    Teens nowadays watch HIMYM.

    Teens in the 90's-early 2000's watched Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

    Understand?
