DIY: Make Your Own Gay-Friendly Boy Scout Badge

Want to make the Eagle Award — the top honor an Eagle Scout can earn — more friendly to all? Or just have a dope fashion accessory to rock at the club? Was that second sentence embarrassing? I'm pretty sure it was but I'm keeping it in because I would totally have done that in the mid-90s.

It looks pretty easy to remove the red, white, and blue ribbon and put some Roy G. Biv fabulousness in its place. I'm not sure it's more complicated than just replacing the ribbon but the end result is really rad and I want one. Since the Boy Scouts have a ban on gay scouts and leaders, and since there are plenty of scouts who are gay or supportive of gay scouts, it's a pretty wonderful way to show solidarity. Do you think scouts would get kicked out for such an infraction? Or just get lots of high fives? If they were in my (imaginary) troop, they'd totally get all the high fives in the world.
