Openly Gay Boy Scout Unsure How He Feels About Group's New Policy

pascal tessier

After the Boy Scouts of American unveiled their momentous decision yesterday to allow openly gay boys in their group- a lot of people were getting a little choked up.

One person who definitely was feeling some love was an openly gay scout from Maryland named Pascal Tessier.

It's been a long road for this top notch boy scout, but he can finally be gay and proud!

Here's what he said:

"I was thinking that today could be my last day as a Boy Scout. Obviously, for gay Scouts like me, this vote is life-changing."

Yet Pascal also feels uneasy about the change in the rules of the game.

Boy Scouts Lift Ban On Openly Gay Members, No Such Luck For Scout Leaders!

boy scouts vote allow openly gay members maintain ban on gay adult leaders

It's about time!!

After months of endless debate, the Boy Scouts of America finally voted to allow openly gay scouts to join their ranks!!

Over 60% of the 1,400 person polled think the youth organization should allow all qualified members, regardless of sexual orientation!!

Even though the a large percentage of the organization is run by those affiliated with Mormon and Catholic churches who are, sadly, sometimes unhip to LGBT tolerance, the measure was still able to pass!

The first hard fought battle was won, but plenty of work remains!!

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.

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!
