    Good for the Scouts.

    And I eagerly await the freakishly hateful statements that will inevitably come from people like the Family Research Council.[/FONT][/COLOR]

    What does an openly Gay Boy Scout look like, and what would they be doing in Scouting that would indicate they were?

    Right, but how we want kids to behave and how they act are often not the same thing

    doubt bullying happens in those instances already. Even the account cited here concerned kids at a camp outing. So i still see it having little impact on it

    The reason bullying is such an issue is because it's not something solely engage in by 'bad kids" It's rather ubiquitous
    I think I'm simply lost on why this was even brought up. Bullying will be part of scouts as much as it is with the ban as without. It is likely less of a problem in scouts than other places mainly because of the activity level and the fact that scouting is a voluntary thing to do, plus the lessons that it is specifically trying to teach. (Respect isn't emphasized in upper schools nearly as much percent of the lessons wise as it is going to be in scouts.)

    Exactly. In order to enforce the ban that was there, they had to talk about it. Are you really expecting that in a group of teenage boys none of them are going to tell someone else if they're gay? Before, they told someone and got bounced. Now they don't get bounced. That's the only difference.

    Re: Boy Scouts vote to welcome gay members

    The folks that are ok with this are parents that are also ok with ideas like having their little girls and boys bunk with each other. My God my little girl is 7 and she's already got boys all over her, I watch her like a hawk when in opposite sex company. She's 7 years old people. Those that say little gay kids aren't interested in other little non gay boys are smoking crack!! That simple!
