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.

Simon Cowell Talks Working In Gay Industry, Homosexuality Rumors, & Marital Status!

simon cowell talks sexuality gay industry wife x factor

Simon Cowell has peeked inside more supermodels than a Beverly Hills gynecologist, but he's never been able to shake the persistent rumor that he might be homosexual!

As it turns out, he doesn't give a rat's ass!

The X Factor star and exec admitted:

"I couldn't care less because it's nothing to be ashamed of. It feels like such an antiquated question now. If I was living 200 years ago in a coal mine, maybe, but I work in possibly the gayest industry in the world."

He's 100% right! One's sexual orientation should NEVER be cause for shame!

Filed under: Gay Gay GayLove LineKatie CouricDr. PhilFootballLGBT

Jeez! Things just keep getting weirder and weirder in the Manti Te'o scandal!

First, his interview with Katie Couric really only raised more questions.

Then, Dr. Phil interviewed the mastermind behind the whole hoax, Ronaiah Tuiasosopo. He found that he was a very confused young man who had fallen deeply in love with Manti.

Now we've seen more of the interview and we barely even scratched the surface of how confused Ronaiah was!

Georgia Denies Man AMAZEBALLS Pro-Gay Vanity Plates, Approves Awful Non-Gay Ones On The Reg??

Filed under: Gay Gay GayLegal MattersPolitikLGBT

If you're in Georgia, and you want to show that you support the LGBT community by paying extra for vanity license plates, you're out of luck.

If you want to show how much you love beer (because that's awesome to mix with driving), it just depends on how you say it. Their approval system is both arbitrary and capricious!

Honestly, Georgia, this f***ing sucks… and it needs to change!

So what plates were denied? Georgia driver James Gilbert's 1st, 2nd, AND 3rd choices: 4GAYLIB, GAYPWR, or GAYGUY.

The subject of vanity plates is up to the discretion of system that deems what you submit as "obscene according to current community standards." You can't be obscene or defamatory against a person, group, religion, race or ethnicity. So apparently being a homosexual, or just the use of the word 'gay' in Georgia is considered obscene? BOO.

According to the source and the list of approved and banned plates, here are some ridiculous examples:

Jennifer Garner's Alias Dad Victor Garber Comes Out As Gay!

What an incredible week for previously-private celebrities in the LGBT community!

We think everyone can easily agree that Jodie Foster's acceptance speech for the Cecil B. DeMille Award at Sunday night's 2013 Golden Globes ceremony was one of the most powerful, unexpected ways in which an actor has ever revealed his or herself to the public as a homosexual, and while she deserves all the praise and admiration she has garnered for her layered, introspective reflection on her life and accomplishments, it's ALSO nice to see one her fellow thespians open up about his private life in a much more to-the-point fashion!

And that is EXACTLY what Victor Garber, best known for his work in Titanic and Alias, did during last week's TV Critics Association Press Tour, for his upcoming role in NBC's Deception!

Apparently, when asked about his Wikipedia page listing him in a same-sex relationship with Rainer Andreesen, his companion of 13 years, Garber acknowledged:
