Why Don’t You Help Really Build a Productive Society?

By Meghan Tschaikowsky

It may be delicious, but boycotting the Boy Scout’s fundraising popcorn leaves me a lot more satisfied than popping the buttery kernels into my mouth. Why give up this tasty treat towards a “good” cause? Well, in early April, Jennifer Tyrrell, was forced to resign as den leader of her son’s Tiger Scout chapter because of her sexual orientation.

On the Boy Scout’s of America’s website, the organization states:

“Helping youth is a key to building a more conscientious, responsible, and productive society”

But what type of society is the organization encouraging? America should be moving forward in this matter and it’s unbelievable that this organization can legally discriminate like this.

So what can we do?

I just signed this petition. If you agree with me, you should too.
