I'm glad I pulled my boy out of the Boy Scouts before they start having circle jerks around the campfire.

Open your ranks to gay youth and say goodbye to your sponsors.

You DO know that the founder of Boy Scouts, Lord Baden-Powell, was probably a gay men, don't you?

I can believe that! A gay man decides to found a group of young boys. Hmmm.

This is extremely revealing of this troll's psychology.

The troll meant to invoke some sort of chastity device to protect [sic] the troll's favorite orifice of the Boy Scouts while they sleep.

Instead, due to a revealing Freudian slip, the troll invoked a sex toy which is actually inserted into the troll's favorite orifice while the Boy Scouts sleep.

Naturally none of this is news, but it's just worth noting for the sixteen year old troll's embarrassment.

I doubt there will be any more circle jerks or gay play in the Boy Scouts than there ever has been. Boys play with each other whether a gay boy is present or not. It is part of growing up. Nearly all guys, if they would only admit it, play with their friends physically at some point or another. The straight ones grow out of it and the gay ones continue the practice into adulthood. It is just the way things are. Get over it.

No, but I knew him back in the day. A great person in some ways and a real loose canon in others, his greatest failing was that he was an unrealistic ideologue.

Why?

Some people in this world have a yummy immoral criminal appetite for young boys. Plenty of those around here. What's a canon?

That's a load of BS! I never heard of circle jerks growing up and didn't know anyone who did. If any boy had even suggested doing that he would have gotten his ass kicked.
