If you are a national reporter writing on the Girl Scouts and you call their national office in New York City, you will talk to a guy named Josh Ackley.
If you are a Girl Scout wanting regular advice or information on the Girl Scouts and you turn to the Girl Scout blog, its Josh Ackley (pictured, center) youll be reading.
If you are a Girl Scout mom concerned about the sometimes-troubling drift of the Girl Scouts in recent years, Josh Ackley may be the one youll meet with.
To many key groups, Josh Ackley is the public face of one of the historically preeminent institutions for little girls.
He has been with the Girl Scouts in external communications since 2008, became a prominent blogger for the organization in 2009, and since their public relations chief Michelle Tompkins recently left in a flood of headquarter staff exits, seems to be the Girl Scouts' main and only spokesman.
So, who is Josh Ackley?
He is the lead singer of a band called The Dead Betties.
The Dead Betties were part of a movement called homo-punk, sometimes homocore, that Wikipedia describes as an offshoot of punk distinguished by its discontent with society in general, and specifically society's disapproval of the gay, bi-sexual, lesbian and transgender communities. The Dead Betties are profiled in the book Homocore: The Loud and Raucous Rise of Queer Rock.
Girl Scout moms and girls will know none of this. They will also not know that The Dead Betties put out a campy video that received MTV play in the mid-00s called "Hellevator," where a sneering Ackley watches over a woman being stalked and then strangled on an elevator in an abandoned building.

A Google search of ""joshua ackley" girl scouts" turns up not a single picture of the man. How is that possible? Unless he doesn't want to be seen.

Analarchy in the UK is an underrated album.
Okay, I wish I hadn’t googled analarchy.
I almost did a search, because for all I know that is an actual title of a homocore album or something.
But then I was like, naaaaahh...
once you get a couple of people like this guy in the upper levels of an organization, they can control everything
You stay classy.
The Girl Scouts have gone left and crazy a while back, this is no surprise
