Sad about Boy Scouts ...

""It's The Biggest Sex-Abuse Bankruptcy Of All Time" - Facing 100s Of Lawsuits, Boy Scouts Of America Goes Chapter 11" ... I was only a Cub Scout, but my father was a Boy Scout.  Darn those pedophile den mothers! (sarc)

I was a scout and my mother was a den mother. It's terrible that so many boys were sexually abused. One of my classmates in high school who was a junior when I was a freshman was caught trying to engage in sex with another scout on a camping trip. Everyone found out about it and he ended up killing himself. He was the only gay person I knew and it really affected me.

That is sad.  So a gay scout master wasn't involved then.  Just "playing doctor".  There used to be a great stigma.  I wouldn't be happy as a father, if my child "played doctor" but I think it can be overlooked as a youthful indiscretion.  Today we have bullying on the Internet, and young people killing themselves over that.
