Skip to comments.Boy Scouts and Sexual Abuse: What Will Happen to 'It happened to me'?
Posted on 05/27/2013 7:32:46 AM PDT by SeekAndFind
There are some things a parent doesn't want to think, let alone talk, about. For many, chief among those would be sexual assault and abuse of his or her own children. Yet evil far too frequently flourishes in silence. That's why there are times when some individual or group has to be brave enough not just to speak out, but to genuinely try to protect the vulnerable when far too many either are silent or simply don't care.
That's exactly what the Boy Scouts of America tried to do about the problem of juvenile sexual abuse of boys years ago when they created the original video "It happened to me," in age-appropriate versions for both Cub and Boy Scouts. The videos are designed both to educate and to protect against situations when a boy can be in danger from sexually predatory behavior. And given that this campaign (like the organization which started it) has long been quite problematic to liberals, the direction of this video will be telltale as to where the now gay-affirming Boy Scouts of America goes, or perhaps more appropriately, how it ends.
First, off YouTube (unfortunately, in not ideal quality), here are excerpts from the more recent version of "It happened to me," broken into four approximately six-minute modules:
1. "Check first"
2. "Go with a friend"
3. "It's your body and you can say No!"
4. "Tell your parents or another adult you can trust!"
Also, here is a 3-minute excerpt from the original 1990s video, Cub scout version. It's half-corny/half-creepy (more of the latter), but honestly, I don't know how they could have done any better with the subject matter.

the Boy Scouts are full of gays now ,all they’re doing is bringing them out into the open so they can work on the new badges
This was the final nail in the Boy Scouts coffin. Who would dare send their sons out to be raped by a chicken hawk?
Pray for America to Wake Up
"It's okay to explore your sexual identity on camping trips with your older pals."
Lawyers and rubbing their hand in anticipation. “was your child sexually assaulted while participating in th boy scouts? Call 888-Meg-AMil...”
There are more frequent pings than usual because of the recent catastrophic decision to include openly gay scouts -- yet somehow prohibit openly gay leaders. Logically, that's just one lawsuit away.

“Love Is Love” - says NAMBLA.
It would have been preferable that he not have been there, however.
Liberals oppose anti sexual abuse education everywhere and wax emotionally indignant and wroth about incidents of it in religious settings or conservative organizations even as they decry Priest “pedophiles”(almost entirely non pedophile homosexuals). Liberals desire total sexual access to anyone or thing that a liberal might fancy but such activity in a conservative or religious milieux is occasion for condemnation of conservatives and religion.
My 11 year old grandson is still in scouts but, so far, any camping trips include ALL fathers and boys. They set a rule that the dad must be in the same cabin with his son.
People will say there have always been homosexuals in the BSA and the adults will continue to uphold morality. Then why this acceptance? To accept something then something must change. What are they planning to change? Will homosexuals be protected from sexual misconduct charges? “Oh, Billy, he did not try to hump you in the butt. You’re making that up. Stop being a homophobe!”
It is time to start documenting the incidence of sexual abuse cases in the BSA before and after the enactment of the acceptance of gay scouts. We would like to see the actual number of cases and the estimated number of unreported complaints.
Also someone should identify the persons responsible for the change, because they are liable for the damage.
People in favor of deviancy apparently like chaos; so does the devil.
first time a kid gets pawed by a gay boy, they’ll get the pants sued out fo them for creating the environment. there should be no room for sex in scouting.
I am willing to bet money that before this is all over the BSA will be sued because one boy was sexually assaulted by another boy in the troop. We already know sex assaults are up in the military due to the increase of homos. There will be those “diverse” parents who did not pull their kids from the BSA and those are the kids who will be attacked.
Who wants to join with me in the bet?
“Will homosexuals be protected from sexual misconduct charges? Oh, Billy, he did not try to hump you in the butt. Youre making that up. Stop being a homophobe!”
That is common in all sexual abuse not to believe the victim. That is why in this case we must take these things very seriously. If you really love your kids, just pull them out of the BSA NOW!!!!! Find another group!!.
Look I know the Catholic Church has one but for those of you who are not “down” with that I also know the Salvation Army has their own version. In fact I feel so strongly about this I feel that here at Free Republic we should form a list with websites of altertanive groups for boys and girls.
that's the whole idea! Sue the Scouts out of existence so the feminization of the American male can proceed unhindered.
Not unlike what they are doing to the Military
Oh they have already destroyed it. People are going to leave and take their sons with them. Donations will drop. It will go by the way of JCPenny in less than a year and that is before the lawsuits begin. Even if JCPenny got rid of Ellen and the queer ads I am not sure they’d ever recover enough to get in the black.
At some point you’d almost welcome the fires of Sodom and Gomorrah just to end the madness.
I totally agree
Time to splinter off
If the kid pawed is normal, the suit will be against him for punching out the aggressive queer.
HOMOSEXUAL, because there's nothing GAY about it.
No more money to the Butt Scouts of Abomination.
Hey, BSA National! What are you going to buy with your 30 pieces of queer silver?
that is on purpose.
Cabin? How is that camping?
Frankly, what needs to happen is for every straight man who was the subject of an assault or attempted assault by a homosexual pedophile is to come out and tell the world how prevalent this is and how dangerous the policy of the Scouts is. My guess is most straight guys have been the subject of unwanted homosexual approach or assault by older men at least once when they were in their teens, but most are too embarrassed now to come out and tell the world what can happen and what happened to them.

New York Council is openly allowing gay leaders
Is this in response to the recent announcement by National Council, or has it been a long-standing "rule"? Do you recall an article that you could link to?
It will be up to the parents to let children stay where they are exposed to "normalization."
The question then becomes “If you have a gay Scout or Scoutmaster, do you want to know?”.
The “never alone with a Scout” rule was designed to get around the idea that we never knew who was gay.
Ironically, most of the homosexuals wanting to be Scoutmasters seem to be lesbians as best I can tell.
