Lord Robert Baden-Powell, the founder of the Scouts, was a fag and a pedo.
Tom Jeal's "The Boy-Man", a 1990 biography, details Baden-Powell's
attraction to, and likely affairs with, teenage boys, as well as his
fondness for nude boy photos and requirements that Scouts in his care should
bathe outside naked. When Baden-Powell died, his family promptly burned his
voluminous collection of photographs. Today he would have made the top ten
on a sex offenders registry list.

"Baden-Powell, the founder of the scout movement, liked to look at photos of
nude schoolboys with his friend, a schoolmaster and keen amateur snapper of
his pupils. This seemed perfectly natural to them, part of the healthy
outdoor life. Now they would get into serious trouble."

Scouting -- which Baden-Powell referred to as a "character factory" -- was a
regiment to inculcate a deeply conservative, secular Christianity that
espoused a defensive nationalism, racial intolerance, and sexual
prohibitions. Scouting would turn out real men who would maintain the
status-quo, and not challenge prevailing social standards. When World War I
erupted Scouting was seen as the breeding ground of good soldiers.

As World War II began Baden-Powell's repulsive political and racial
attitudes, which inform the history of Scouting but are clearly separate
from it as well, became even more evident. In 1937 Baden-Powell was eager
for the scouting movement to establish official ties with Hitler youth
groups. In 1939 he noted in his diary: "Lay up all day. Read Mein Kampf. A
wonderful book, with good ideas on education, health, propaganda,
organization etc. -- and ideals which Hitler does not practice himself."

While the Boy Scouts today are certainly not a neo-Nazi group, nor as
paramilitary as they were in the past, many of Baden-Powell's original ideas
still remain -- especially those that inform how "real men" are made in the
character factory.

Any "straight" males who'd genuinely want to lead have long since been
scared away...

If you can't answer it, that's not my fault...
