Boy Scouts Overturn Youth Ban

The Boy Scouts organization today voted to allow gay youth to join the Boy Scouts, overturning a long time ban. However, the Scouts will still deny gay and lesbian Scout leaders. While we’re happy with the gay youth decision, the gay adult ban remaining in place is very damaging. Basically, the Boy Scouts are saying that gay adults can’t be trusted, further enforcing an incorrect and antiquated stereotype that gay adults are predatory.
