The Boy Scouts are considering lifting their ban on gay scouts. My family has always been involved in scouts; my grandfather, father, my brothers, and myself all became eagle scouts. I always thought it was kind of sad that my older brother, who was always way more involved than the rest of us and got so much out of it, has been refusing to let his son join scouts because of their anti-gay position. The new proposal will only lift the ban on youth scouts, not adult leaders. I guess it's a step in the right direction but it's really sad that some people still equate homosexuality with child molestation. It would be nice that by now, despite someone's personal and/or moral views, that sort of willful ignorance of a fact wasn't so pervasive. In my time working summers at a scout camp I've known several gay scout leaders (not openly gay but close enough friends that they came out to me). I've unfortunately also crossed paths with a few scout leaders who I later learned had been jailed for molestation, none of whom were gay, and yet this is still used to justify people's homophobia.

this is a great video that approaches issues of teen bullying and teen suicide based on sexual orientation from a new perspective, by depicting a world in which heterosexuality and homosexuality have been reversed:

Love is All You Need?

That was pretty cool,. Flipping it around really shows how absurd homophobia is.

Needs a trigger warning, though. (Found this out the hard way last week, by watching it to try and distract myself from something I was crying about. It ended poorly. Er, to clarify, there was just more crying involved, I'm lucky enough to not be prone to self harm, even when completely miserable)

I reworded my description so that it's clearer about what to expect. Is that better? I'm not really familiar with using trigger warnings.

Much better, thank you.

If you wanna shorthand it, just going "trigger warnings for self harm and suicide" or whatever else is included.

Sorry to be annoying about it, I know asking for this kinda thing pisses some people off, but it was just ten kinds of bad timing (I saw it originally on tumblr) and it made a bad night much much worse. I can't imagine what it could do to someone who is suicidal, or had been at one point.

It wasn't annoying. I was pretty much ignorant to idea of trigger warnings and now I'm not. I'm glad to be made aware of such things.

New Zealand McDonald's Employee Reprimanded For Being 'Too Gay,' Told Not To 'Turn' Customers Gay

"One of my managers said, 'If you act gay on my shift, I will discipline you,'" he told OneNews. "He also said, 'If you turn anyone else in the store gay, I will punish you and make you lose your job.'"

Poe's Law Level Homophobia right there.

Fast food stands like Burger King or KFC should totally jump on this and proclaim how LGBTQ friendly they are - win some publicity and money at that.

Just a note on this. Most pedophiles are straight.
