New one!
I was gonna do a run-down of all the movies that SyFy premiered during their 2015 "Sharknado Week" whoop de doo but all of them pretty much sucked except for the not-at-alll-shark-related "LAVALANTULA," so I decided to focus on that one instead.

Seriously, how could anyone possibly resist a movie in which earth's only hope against an invasion of fire-breathing giant spiders is ... the cast of "Police Academy?"

Starship: Rising (2014) - in the future there are two warring factions and we get enough backstory about them to fill a novel. I really had no idea what was going on with all those subplots most of the time. Anyhow one of them has this powerful starship and orders the crew to destroy earth, but they mutiny and so their superiors try to hunt them down. Most of the movie is this starship fighting off other ships trying to destroy earth, then they retreat for repairs, then repeat a few times. Intersperse that with a few ground battles between the two factions that left me totally confused. The special effects - and there were a TON of them - weren't actually that bad for a very low budget thing like this. Acting was a different story altogether. Some of the casting choices were just laughable too. And the few bits of plot I picked up on were completely nonsensical. Somehow though, it was still kind of fun. 3/5.

...Me, I was angered and saddened by the slaying of this noble lion, and I was disgusted and outraged by the other video I mentioned. (All of which, unedited and uncensored, by the way, is available online, if you think the presentation of media outlets have made it suspect.)

I would not be so sure about that 'unedited and uncensored' part, if it is the video I have seen discussed.  Don't believe everything you see - or are told.

The discussions I have seen have been on BSA discussion forums and pages.  If you do not go or belong there, there is little likelihood that you'd see the comments.  These are largely people within the organisation. Which is where some of the astonishment comes in: one does not expect people in Scouting to be so hateful.

ER, there have always been gay leaders in the BSA.  They just kept it secret, on a personal level.  Now they do not have to.

I am sure that what you have outlined is very close to what drives the panic response.

As for the increased 'opportunity':  here in Canada we have been completely 'co-ed' in Scouting for many years.  
Following your line of reasoning, ANY 'straight' male Scouter or teacher or minister or doctor or any other authority figure could be seducing all the girls, too.  The 'straight' female leaders could be prowling for young boys, as well.  Should we be segregating everything in life on the basis of sexuality?  Only straight female doctors for all straight females and so on down the line?

When we go looking for "what might happen" we have to be reasonable.  It's called "taking reasonable care and precaution" - the insurance industry is fond of that phrase and you can bet THEY are risk-averse.  Homosexuals are just as likely to be good, reasonable human beings of 'good' character as anyone else.

To become a Scouter there is a long vetting process to go through.  Multiple references are checked, multi-level interviews and training sessions.  Here in Canada we have a rule that Scouters must always be "two deep" : meaning there must always - ALWAYS - be two adult Scouters in full view of each other at all times.  It would be a reasonable response on the part of the BSA to institute similar practices and you may find that the rate of abuses goes DOWN rather than up, simply due to increased vigilance practiced in order to reassure the public perceptions.

We rely on character as the 'control' of behaviour.  And good character is NOT exclusive to heterosexuals.

No argument: their sexual orientation IS at the forefront of of their self-definition.  It does not have to mean that that is what they are ALL about.  If you consciously class yourself as 'heterosexual' do thoughts of sex enter into all your daily dealings and drive you to look for release - and then act on that impulse - anywhere you can get it?

Good people are good people.  End of story.

Wondering who classified The Poseidon Adventure as fantasy.
That'd be my question.

I also question whether it is the 1972 original, the 2005 remake, or the 2005 TV movie, which is not the same.
Anyway . . .?!

Turns out it's the 2005 Hallmark two-part miniseries.

Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

Lesson Learned:
  • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
