Why would a fairy's opinion matter to a homophobe?

Good that they are willing to take a stand against the Boy Scouts policy of intolerance, sucks for the kids that just want to play baseball but are caught up in this ugly situation.

I guess the freedom of association clause of the Constitution is under attack again.  The scouts are a private organization.

Oh well, here's to teh gheys!

The Boy Scouts need to rectify this by having the priest of the gay church, I mean, the Catholic church, lead the boys in some man-boy games.

Everyone knows this. Peter Pan wore tights, lived with a bunch of other guys and never once hit on Tinkerbell. What more proof does one need?

Wrong side of history, BSA. You've sown the seeds of your own demise, and you will not be lamented.
 
2014-02-28 05:51:05 PM  
No problem with this. I think the BSA should have the right to associate with whoever they want or exclude whoever they want, but that shouldn't insulate them from the consequences of their actions.

Exactly, Disney gets to associate with whoever theyvwant.

Disney understands one important thing. They make more money by welcoming the gay community than by being against it.

So is Disney, and they've exercised their freedom of association by choosing not to support the Boy Scouts. I'm not sure how that particular clause of the Constitution is under attack again.

Huh? So do we all have to fund the scouts for being anti-gay, or just Disney for some reason? And why does freedom of association mean we are obligated to give them money again?

Unless Peter is hung like a mouse or Tinkerbell is made of rubber, I can think of at least one other reason why Peter wouldn't be interested.

Yeah, while that's technically not an "official" Disney event they've done not one thing to discourage it. In recent years they've even been increasing support for the event; I rather suppose they figure it's a great way to make some money while letting somebody else do all the hard organization work.

The BSA is free to make their own choices, as is Disney. But much more of this and I can see the BSA changing their tune- eventually it becomes impossible to find your activities if nobody will have anything to do with you.

I think he had major a thing for Wendy though which sort of takes some of the steam out of Peter Pan was gay theory.

He was just a boy that refused to grow up.  Do we have to see him as anything other than that?

/yes. it was a real thing. Because Frozen hinted strongly at having a gay couple in it, and Elsa/Anna were strong, independant women who broke the norm of Disney princesses by not falling head over heels for a man to save the day, Disney was trying to promote the "homosexual lifestyle" to children.

So that would mean Capt. Hook is the Right? Because he's always trying to kill Peter. I guess that makes the crocodile the Left because he's always trying to eat Hook.

They were on the wrong side of integration too. Back then it was small, local troops leading the way and dragging the national BSA along, kicking and screaming. Just like this time.

Should clarify that it was the small, local troops that allowed black kids in, then black leaders, and eventually the national council had no choice but to go along with it.

Funny that the BSA has faced more fallout than support over it's decision to finally allow gay boys into the scouts, because it reminded everyone that they still don't allow gay leaders.  I mean, the only move they made was a positive one, even if not far enough, but it caused several big donors to cut their support.  Did they not realize that the scouts didn't allow gay boys or leaders before that?

I think if you take the time to review Disney "princessess", you'll find that most of them- although many end up with the man in the end-- are pretty tough cookies.  While Snow White may appeared a little over the top on her house keeping for the boys, she had quite the moxie when it came to optimism in the face of some pretty dark circumstances.

Disney women- dispite the glitter and the fluff-- made excellent role models when it came to character.

My sons troop has gay kids and gay parents (some of which...shuuush, don't tell anyone...have leadership / commitee status).   Who the fark cares?  Ok, who the fark  should care?   We had a question asked by a potential parent that asked what our policy on gays was.  The response was (paraphrased) 'our troop doesn't discriminate, if that's a problem there are other Scout troops in the area to try.'

Oh, so it wasn't even something tangible for the kids like discount coupons or merchandise, it was just arbitrary donations into the general scouting slush funds, and Disney cut them off because they don't approve of their policies, or to save money, whatever.  Okay.

The gay agenda strikes again! Kick the sh*t out of the Boy Scouts while they're down, that's the ticket!

A group of do-gooders who have spent nearly a century helping people are slowly but surely being destroyed because they won't back down from beliefs, proven over time to be an extremely successful method of raising young men, and cave in to political correctness.

The gays couldn't just go off and start their own gay scouts, nooooooooooooooo...... to them it's "Agree with us or we will destroy you".
