Girl Scouts Hire Lead Singer of ‘Queer Rock’ Band


In 2002, Joshua Ackley formed the Dead Betties, a “homopunk” band. Publicity shots show him dressed in women’s clothing, and in music videos he is apparently naked and simulating masturbation. The video for the Dead Betties’ song “Hellevator” portrays a woman being strangulated in an elevator shaft. 

Today he works for the Girl Scouts in media relations, issuing press releases and posting on the Girl Scouts official blog.

In fact, Josh Ackley was the adult facilitator in the Girl Scouts “no adults allowed” workshop at the U.N. — the workshop where the Planned Parenthood sex brochure “Healthy, Happy, and Hot” was offered, though Ackley denies it.  

See the new website for thorough documentation on the Josh Ackley outrage, and many others.   

Ready to get your girls out of the Girl Scouts yet?
