Boy Scouts of America Executive Apologizes After Cringe-Worthy Donald Trump Speech!

Filed under: PolitikDonald TrumpControversy

no title

The Boy Scouts of America are NOT here for Donald Trump's offensive speech!

As we reported, POTUS was invited (like every other sitting President) to speak at the annual Boy Scout Jamboree, where he took the opportunity to bring up things like the size of his inauguration crowd (still!), the current health care bill, The Apprentice, Christmas, winning the election, living in New York high society back before these kids were even born, and did we mention winning the election?

It was truly something else.

Anyway, it has garnered a lot of attention for numerous reasons over the past week — but mainly because it was super offensive, ill-informed, and took away attention from all of these scouts' accomplishments.

In a statement released on Thursday, the Chief Scout Executive for the Boy Scouts of America, Michael Surbaugh, apologized to anyone who might've been alarmed by Trump's words and said their intention was never to make a political statement.

Let's be clear… The Boy Scouts of America. Are apologizing. For the behavior. Of the President of the United States. We just…

8-Year-Old Boy Kicked Out Of Cub Scouts Because He's Transgender!

no title

One step forward, two steps back.

As you may be aware, it's been over three years since the Boy Scouts of America finally started allowing openly gay children in their group — and about a year and a half since they extended that invitation to adult Den Leaders as well.

Unfortunately, it still looks like we're years away from getting true equality in the controversial organization… because an 8-year-old boy was just kicked out of Cub Scouts for being transgender!

Joe Maldonado first joined Pack 87 in Secaucus, New Jersey back in October, but was almost immediately asked to leave due to his gender identity just a month later in November.

According to momma Kristie Maldonado, though, it wasn't other kids who were concerned with his appearance — Joe has been living as a boy for over a year now — it was their parents.

But to make things even worse, Scouts spokesperson Effie Delimarkos actually defended their decision to discriminate against the child in a statement, saying:

Gay Adults Can Finally Be A Part Of The Boy Scouts — But How Close Was The Vote?

Filed under: Gay Gay GayStuff 4 KidzLGBT

no title

It's about time.

Despite living in a country where same-sex marriage is now legal in all 50 states, the Boy Scouts of America have had a controversial history of disallowing gay people into their organization.

It was a landmark decision when the Boy Scouts finally let gay children into their club, but they were still adamant about not allowing homosexual adults to take part in den leadership.

Well, that's all a thing of the past, because the National Executive Board for the org just voted to rectify the scandalous rule that's been in effect since they were founded in 1910.

And the best part?

Girl Scouts Opens Their Doors To Trans Members While The Boy Scouts Try To Lift Their Ban On Gay Scout Leaders!

Filed under: Gay Gay GayStuff 4 KidzLGBT

The Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts are finally getting their sh*t together!

It seems crazy that in 2015 there are STILL national organizations that are actually allowed to discriminate and exclude members based on their sexual orientation or gender!

But it looks like the Boy Scouts of America might FINALLY be getting their sh*t together!!

Last year, the Boy Scouts showed a bit of promise when they finally started allowing gay members to join as scouts! But that progress doesn't mean much when you realize they still have a ban on gay scout leaders!

Well, it sounds like that might change and SOON, as the group's president Robert Gates says there's NO way the ban will last! In fact, just last month the New York chapter announced they hired an openly gay scout leader as a summer camp leader!

While Robert says a change is gonna come, he also says

Intolerant Christian Families Finally Have An Anti-Gay Boy Scout Alternative For Their Soon-To-Be Intolerant Christian Kids!

Filed under: Gay Gay GaySad SadPerezcious ParentingLGBT

trail life usa new intolerant version of boy scouts christian anti gay boo

Are you the head of a super intolerant household who is TERRIFIED because your anachronistic ways are no longer en vogue and your xenophobia is being systematically marginalized?

Well, we've got good news! There's still a place for you and the innocent children you're so desperate to turn into full grown d-bags!

It's called Trail Life USA and it's pretty similar to the Boy Scouts of America, except that the founders are misappropriating the tenants of Christianity to exclude openly gay members!

Yeah, because camping trips with boys in neckerchiefs is no place for homosexuals! LOLz!!
