The Boy Scouts of America emailed ABCNews.com a prepared statement that said its focus is on “delivering a program of character development and leadership training.”
“Scouting, and the majority of parents it serves, does not believe it is the right forum for children to become aware of the issue of sexual orientation, or engage in discussions about being gay,” it said. “Rather, such complex matters should be discussed with parents, caregivers, or spiritual advisers, at the appropriate time and in the right setting.”
The Boy Scouts acknowledged their policy was controversial, but added, “To disagree does not mean to disrespect and we respect everyone’s right to have and express a different opinion. Scouting will continue to teach our members to treat everyone with courtesy and respect.”” —
So, apparently “heterosexual” is not a sexual orientation and “discriminating against people” is “treating everyone with courtesy and respect.”
I guess maybe they discriminated really nicely?

I’m so relieved right now. After three hours of trying different computers, I finally found one that can run Camtasia smoothly enough for me to actually do my video project on androgyny. I’m almost done and am going to finish it tomorrow. Also, I found out the 3 page paper that goes with it isn’t due until the end of the semester!
sometimes i wonder what my teachers’ otps are.
what if teachers shipped their students
ship wars in the staff room
anonymous hate mail in other teachers’ assignment boxes
fanfiction written by english teachers, fanart drawn by art teachers
the real edgy teachers write teacher/student fics and hope the school board doesn’t find out
(the school board knows and eagerly awaits each new chapter)
Planned Parenthood is excited to be launching our new Tumblr that’s all about sexual and reproductive health – bodies, birth control, relationship issues, “is it normal for this to do this?” type things. In the coming weeks and months we’ll be sharing what we know, answering questions, and just… tumblring.
We hope you like it! And we hope it helps.
