  •  My scouting family approves! (3+ / 0-)

    My nephews (10 and 13) are very vocally opposed.  Their dad (my best friend from college) is the outgoing president of their pack's council.  He and their mom have been very clear about their opposition to the ban.  

    They have had to walk a fine line on this--besides me, the boys have an aunt who lives with her female partner. It has been hard sometimes--I have been happy to pitch in setting up all the hi-tech gear for the annual Pinewood Derby (we had NOTHING like that when I was a scout), but declined to work on editing local leadership materials that referenced the exclusionary policy.

    This is a happy day in our Scouting family. It's not final victory, but it's a great step forward.  

    (That sound you are hearing is a paradigm being shifted at Warp Factor Infinity using no clutch.)
