I like the concept in principle. But the execution could be impossible.
Pedophiles have been attracted to the original Boy Scouts. Assorted social & political interests protected these perverts from exposure and prosecution, and when they were finally exposed, gays took the rap.
So what happens when a pedophile abuses these proposed gay boy scouts? I can promise you the sky will fall. And it's bound to happen, no system is perfect, the perverts will find a way to defeat any protections meant to prevent their infiltration. Boys will be hurt once again, and this time gays will take the full brunt of the blame.
I remember when I was a Cub Scout, and we had den mothers, no men except at troop level. Suitable for younger boys.
But I wonder if any mentoring organization for older boys can ever be safe with men in charge. Maybe the whole concept of the Boy Scouts is flawed, and doomed to failure. Comments?
And I dunno about a name. Maybe something forthright & blunt: the Gay Scouts. Or would that sound like gay adults cruising, for themselves or others?
