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.”
From the woman who spent decades baring her sexual proclivities to the world to attack an organization that has always stood for inculcating the best ideals of the human spirit is beyond outrageous—it’s revolting. If Madonna wants an organization to play by her rules, let her start one of her own.
