It doesn't matter if Brown thinks he wasn't raped. It doesn't matter if he thinks he was empowered and it's just an inevitable experience that catapulted him down the road to manhood. It doesn't matter. He was raped. Rape is rape.
The last thing a pedophile would admit to voluntarily is being attracted to boys, but a scoutmaster who has declared himself openly gay is the antithesis of a liar. If you want to guarantee that you're not hiring a pedophile, the answer you should be looking for to "are you a homosexual?" is "yes."
Presumably, the Boy Scouts still believe that they must protect their charges from us scary adult gay men. And it's not just a concern about potential attraction. If it were, they'd also ban heterosexual women from being den mothers. It's a concern that we are predators.
It is so hard to believe that people are still trying to use the purported link between pedophilia and homosexuality. The old, tired argument that pedophilia is linked with homosexuality is wrong on many levels.
In light of the anticipated wave of emotion and anger over the upcoming release of more than 20 years of child molestation records from the Boy Scouts of America (BSA), we need to make one thing clear: The vast majority of child molesters are not gay men.
