BE A PART OF THE PETA2 MOVEMENT

'Scout About' for Animals in Need!

Posted July 19, 2012 by Whitney Calk

OMG, did you hear about this? Yesterday, in one gigantic leap backward, the Boy Scouts of America decided to stick with its longtime policy that bans openly gay boys from joining the group and gay or lesbian adults from serving as leaders.

I think I speak for a lot of people here when I say, “WTF, Boy Scouts?!”

Here at peta2, we don’t care whether you’re straight or gay—we ♥ anyone who speaks up for animals! To show our pride, we’re planning to offer this brand-new, super cute “I Scout About for Animals in Need” merit badge to anyone who supports equality for all beings, human and nonhuman alike.

Check out this sneak peek, and let us know what you think!

    Boy Scouts should teach that a person’s a person’s, no matter how small, and everyone deserves to be treated equally and fairly. No one wants to be an outcast or shunned, no matter how they act.

    I love this! I am so proud of PETA for showing it’s support of the LGBT community. But I am disappointed in the boy scouts once again, just because it is tradition, doesn’t make it right.

    Wonderful! Getting rid of homophobia is the first step towards eliminating speciesism and making the world a fairer place for everyone!

    This is so cool!, everyone deserves to be treated equally with no discrimination, and if you love animals, your sexuality and beliefs…. it doesn’t matter! lol :) because peta2 supports everyone and together we can make the world a better place for all animals!! 😀

    I love this!!!:) when I read the article after they decided they would uphold their policy I literally could not believe it! That is so old fashioned and insensitive.

    That’s amazing! It’s terrible that boy scouts would do such a thing. No wonder so many people are afraid of coming out!
