Two things I don't particularly understand about this decision.
1. Are there a lot of children who are self-identifying as gay and at what age do they start to do so?
2. If you are going to encourage young gay people to "out" themselves in an organization like the boy scouts, wouldn't it be wise to have scout leaders and other adults around who are also gay and "out" who can be role models for these young boys/men? If there aren't any, won't that just make the young gay people feel more isolated?
