The new Jamboree is designed more like paramilitary training. It should be called ROTC-not-so-lite.

Apparently the pedophiles that run the boy scouts don't like gay adults or fat kids

I wonder what the Boy Scouts are doing to help young people in impoverished areas obtain access to reasonably priced heatlhy food. If they are not blocking the entrances to supermarket chains that refuse to open branches in poor black neighbourhoods, they have no business complaining about fat kids.

Damn. Now the obese scouts have to fight for a place to 'belong'. Talk about intolerance!

You're starting to sound like the worst of our opposition.

If attitude, style of delivery, and calumny were the criteria, it would be hard to choose between you.

Stop it.

I'm glad you said,'intolerance'.

Ever since I posted it I was afraid someone would complain this isn't a "gay story". As one editor I just want our forum to be not just about issues about us but issues about others who are enduring repression.

Yet nobody has complained. It's weird. Ever since the SCOTUS verdicts we seem to have opened our eyes to the fact we really are now part of society!
