  •  I've had to have that conversation. (0+ / 0-)

    The hell of it is, we never did talk about sex until this year.

    My local troop did some popcorn "show & sells", where we camp out in front of the supermarket and talk to people coming and going.

    So many folks refused us this year, that I pulled the boys aside and told them what was happening, and why...and to refer any adult that said why not to one of the adult leaders standing by so we could talk them through it.

    This in Newton, MA.   Boston Minuteman Council has had a non-discrimination policy since 2003....but of course a percentage of the popcorn goes to National and funds hate.
