Hopefully this happens!

Because seriously it's about time!

The word on the street is that the Boy Scouts of America should be going through with allowing gay members any day now.

But they won't be letting in gay leaders, which is NOT cool!

Fortunately, it sounds like some members of the organization are starting to see the light. In fact, one of the major councils in Southern California are proposing allowing gay scouts AND leaders!

Here's what the president of the LA council said:

Boy Scouts Ending Ban On Gays!! But ONLY For Youth Members!!!

boy scouts of america lifting gay ban

It looks like all the disenfranchised scouts out there will finally get some resolution- specifically, one that finally makes the Boy Scouts of America open to gay members!

After three months of rigorous research and debate, the Scouts announced today that they are pushing forward a resolution banning discrimination for sexuality!

According to spokesman Deron Smith, the new rule states:

"No youth may be denied membership in the Boy Scouts of America on the basis of sexual orientation or preference alone."

Yay! Progress!

But what took them so long?? Author and Boy Scouts historian Patrick Boyle said:

"This is a historic change for the Boy Scouts.

You have a more than hundred-year-old organization changing what it considered a fundamental belief just a decade ago. That says a lot about the Scouts and a lot about how far the gay rights movement has come in the United States."

The scouts aren't out of the woods yet, so to speak. They still have to vote to ratify the resolution in May.

Then they'll finally get their merit badge in tolerance!

UPDATE:

It seems the Boy Scouts have had to clarify their position since this morning's announcement.

We were so happy with their big step into the new millennium, we failed to notice that the new policy is only for YOUTH members- meaning the BSA still won't be allowing gay scout leaders or other openly homosexual adults, including parents, into their organization.

Rich Ferraro, Vice President of Communications at GLAAD, says:

"By refusing to consider an end to its ban on gay and lesbian parents, the Boy Scouts have missed an opportunity to exercise leadership and usher the organization back to relevancy."

Though this is a very big change in the Scouts' policy, we have to agree. It seems the Boy Scouts of America just aren't prepared to step completely into the future.

Oprah Winfrey is known for her magnanimity and generosity of spirit. Over the years we've seen her give makeovers, cars, TV shows…

But according to one former employee of OWN, one thing the company didn't give was time.

Carolyn Hommel is suing the TV network, saying they "temporarily" replaced her as the senior director of scheduling and acquisitions when she took maternity leave.

But then when she came back she found herself "laid off" and the temp in the position she wanted!

And what's worse, Carolyn says there were suddenly

Boy Scouts May Lift Ban On Gays!!

Filed under: Gay Gay GayPolitikInspiration

Boy Scouts Rethink Gay Ban

The Boy Scouts of America always endeavor to Be Prepared, but it seems they were not quite ready for the public's reaction to their ban on gay scouts and leaders.

As recently as July of last year the Scouts re-affirmed their No Gays Allowed policy, but the times they are a-changin'!

Many charities, businesses, and United Way groups have stopped donating to the Boy Scouts due to their discriminatory practices, causing the organization to rethink their ways.

The BSA's board of directors are reportedly "actively considering" changing their national policy to allow individual charters to allow in homosexual members if they so choose. Spokesman Deron Smith says:

Right now, Tory Burch is somewhere wishing her billionaire status hadn’t been revealed.

Shortly after winning one legal battle, the designer has had another one brought up, but this time it’s by an ex-employee instead of an ex-husband!

Jessica Jones, a black, bisexual woman, claims she was called a "n***er" and a "disgusting" homosexual while she worked at the company's Beverly Hills flagship from July 2011 to July 2012.

And the hits keep on coming for the Boy Scouts of America.

As the organization continues its sad and hurtful ban of gay boy scouts, UPS has become the latest sponsor to pull their funding.

The United Parcel Service will be adopting a non-discrimination policy which will disqualify the BSA from future funding.
