Are You Tougher Than a Boy Scout??

While the Boy Scout discrimination never ceases to amaze me, it seems they have a new partner is bigotry. The National Geographic Channel. The channel will air a new reality show called, you guessed it, “Are You Tougher Than a Boy Scout?”. Nat Geo reps say the cable network is an equal-opportunity employer and that […]

Rebel Who Found Her Cause

When thinking about what to write for this blog, I was faced with a decision. Do I really want people to know the “real” me?? I so often use humor and sarcasm to keep people at a “safe distance”, emotionally speaking. Do I really wanna let people “in” or should I just amuse them with […]

Simply Put: LGBT Folks Don’t Support Salvation Army

Bil at Bilerico has a great write up on this annual battle.  Yes, the Salvation Army does good work. But so do the Boy Scouts. Both openly discriminate against LGBTQ children and adults, including employees. Since 1986 the Salvation Army has engaged in five major assaults on the LGBT community’s civil rights and attempted to […]
