If the law were changed to allow the parents of any molested scout to weld the punishment then I would be for gays in there. My Dad was very involved with our Scouting experience in the late 60’s and 70’s. he and the other Dads did not tolerate the one or two light in the loafers guys who flitted around our group when at camp.

One of those guys went on to be one of the worst abusers in New England. I recall my Dad speaking to one of the other Dads years later agreeing they should have beaten the snot out of the guy years before.

Hah! You should’ve been in Scouts in the 50’s. Almost to, a swinging d!ck, they had served in the Big One (to borrow a phrase from Dobie Gillis) and they were entirely unsympathetic to any whining or moaning from us as when it went below zero at Joshua Tree National Monument in January of ‘58. Did we freeze our asses off? You bet! But it made us stronger mentally and psychologically.

Queers? Yeah, they were present in the priesthood even back then, but, we 13-year-olds had a jungle telegraph about which one to stay away from.

In the Scouts? Don’t remember any thing close. Probably because ‘Chuck’ Bossun and the other scout leaders scared the piss out of them.
