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!

U.S. Defense Secretary Wants DADT Repealed!

Filed under: Gay Gay GayPolitikBarack ObamaLGBT

robert gates wants dont ask dont tell repealed

U.S. Defense Secretary Robert Gates is trying to fight against "Don't Ask, Don't Tell," but he's not optimistic that Congress will listen.

Here's what Gates had to say about it:

"I would like to see the repeal of "don't ask, don't tell" but I'm not sure what the prospects for that are."

Despite efforts from individuals such as Gates, Congress has not acted to lift the ban thus far, even though President Barack Obama has promised to get rid of DADT.

Obama has said that the ban could be repealed in December or early January, following studies of the effects of a repeal on DADT on the front lines, and on home as well.

Sounds kind of bleak at the moment, but we appreciate your support, Robert Gates! Thank you for helping the cause, bb!

Do U think there's any chance that "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" will get repealed?
