For the record, the Boy Scouts did NOT change their policy effectively. They made it so kids who are gay wouldn’t get kicked out. But if you are an adult, even if you spent 12 years becoming an Eagle Scout, the day you turn 18 you are kicked out. They are still equating adult queers with pedophilia by rendering them not okay to be around children.
This is the reality. 90% of pedophiles are straight men. Abusing kids is about power, not sex. Not even a little.
Unless the Boy Scout lift their ban entirely, I suggest that people do not have their boys join. Join Navigators USA (http://navigatorsusa.org/) or one of the other Orgs that are like the Boy Scouts but have different policies.
This policy change is worse than no policy change. It implies that as a gay child we will begrudgingly accept you, but we know what you really become once you’re 18, and we don’t think you should be around our children.
Ok maybe not. I don’t know why the internet outrage meter on this whole ‘no fat clothes’ at A&F is nearing defcon 1.(A&F windbag CEO’s opinion) They have always had white, too thin, model types for the stores. The CEO of A&F Mike Jefferies is clearly pathological in his need to distance himself from his not so beautiful roots.
The guy looks (MIke’s mug) like the main character in the 1985 movie Mask. (For people who’s cells hadn’t divided in 1985) For a guy like him to refuse to even be around people that don’t fit into a very narrow definition of beauty means that guy has a shit-ton of self hate going on. That’s fucking tragic. I don’t give a shit what his opinion is on the popularity of fat people, because he’s clearly basing his company on a standard that he himself cannot meet.
So fat girls out there. Rest assured that my life is awesome. I wear a size 18/20, I have great adventures. I get to act, sing, perform stand-up comedy, write and sometimes I even model. I get laid.
Mike Jefferies is a sad sack of shit who has turned projection of his own insecurities into a multi-million dollar company. My self image or popularity is not based on fitting into a A&F size 10. Or a Lane Bryant size 20. You are not your size.
