Madonna, whose attempts to decide what’s best for maintaining the innocence of childhood would turn any responsible parent’s stomach, spoke at the GLAAD Awards over the weekend and denounced the Boy Scouts for their exclusion of gay Scoutmasters and Scout members.
The Advocate for Innocence, dressed in an oversized Boy Scout uniform, intoned, “I wanted to be a Boy Scout, but they wouldn’t let me join. I think that’s fucked up. I know how to build a fire. I can pitch a tent … most importantly, I know how to scout for boys. I think [the Boy Scouts] should change their stupid rules.”
There's a direct line from this:
A teenage boy collapsed in court today as he gave evidence against a child soap star who allegedly sexually assaulted him when he was just 14-years-old.
The performing arts student, now 17, claims the actor molested him on a ‘weekly basis’ between August and September 2010 at their stage school in an attempt to prove to his girlfriend that he was bisexual...
'The defendant continued to text him saying he had to prove to his girlfriend that he was bi saying he wanted to "do it" with him. And he said that his girlfriend could watch.' ... he told him he had to prove [he was bisexual] because his girlfriend had been with a girl so he had to be with a boy.
Thanks Madonna and Britney and Elton and Bowie. What a wonderful world you've created.
