    I was so pumped to hear about this since Intel was a HUGE provider for them. AAAANNNDDD.... I signed the pledge which did it and like 2 hours later it was filled. I´ve never been a part of such an immediate and important change (as small as it may be on my part) before. Here´s the link to the story:

    This is an even better result than Intel just cutting off funding. The BSA as an organization will not receive funding, but individual troops and councils that reject the BSA's anti-gay policy are still eligible for donations from Intel.

    Damn right bitches! We won't stand sulking in a corner weakly pleading for our rights. We're fucking taking them, one right denied at a time.

    Everywhere.

    And all of them.
