An absolutely amazing organization. Uses its time and resources to fight on the right side of the biggest civil rights issue of modern times (I'm referring to "modern" as the 90s and up... so no hating on the 60s equal rights movement). The organization really cares about getting the word out. I first experienced them when they sent out free stickers to those who were on the right side of history. Now, with the Supreme Court hearing arguments on Proposition 8 and DOMA, the campaign started the red equal sign picture that covered the walls of Facebook users all over the world.

Great organization, great people, great cause.

I do Relay for Life for them every year. This year is my second as a team captain and my team theme is The Costume Party and as you might have guessed, we walk in costume. Our crew of idiots last time included a Pirate, Hannibal Lecter, a Soul Reaper (from the anime Bleach), a Greek Hoplite, and as you might have guessed, a Jedi. Our Lightsaber raffle is infamous and pretty popular as we've already raised $525 this year with over a month to go.

UPDATE: Hey, I forgot to tell you guys that we smashed that total from last year with a $1400 beatdown at this year's event. RIA's own Dreaming even kicked the crap out of the three hundred something I raised with over five hundred in donations, leading the team. Our good friend Neil won our lightsaber raffle and loves his new purple beat stick. Yes, I know how that sounded...

I read Ralphie the homophobic commie's review and immediately thought of Joe McCarthy and, "There are exactly 173 card-carrying communists in the defense department."

The original intent seemed honest enough, but lets face it. It doesn't matter what the organization is, if there are a lot of kids around?... Homo men will do their very best to... "volunteer" their time toward a great cause!

Mostly upper class lunatics, elitists with crew cuts who write godawful poems about their labias. A lot of these chicks look like Howard Cosell in drag and would get a well deserved beating by blue collar and non-white women if they spouted their nonsense to them instead of in ivory towers.

Where do these women hang out? If I could buy them a drink and explain the error of their ways.

ZOMG!! I always wondered where I caught the "gay" from, now I can totally blame it on those boring, far right Boy Scout leaders I had when I was in Boy Scouts. I was such an impressionable young lad.

But seriously, I didn't really care for it as a kid and I certainly wouldn't want any part of it now(I wasn't in the scouts for very long, as I found it tedious and boring).

However, I'm not against the Boy Scouts of America, regardless of their stance on anything. I just don't really care one way or another and I think their popcorn is overpriced, even though I end up buying some almost every year.

Unfortunately, some organizations have leaders that give them the reputation they have today. With that knowledge, it's really hard to give NOW much credit for anything anymore.

The now deceased and former NOW member, Andrea Dworkin, was always a real fun read. One of her most famous quotes filled with misandry that reminds me of NOW;

"I want to see a man beaten to a bloody pulp with a high-heel shoved in his mouth, like an apple in the mouth of a pig."

They even have an "In Memoriam" page on their website dedicated to her.

I will give them one extra star, because I do think their "misogyny meters" on the NOW website are hilarious, even if they are overly dramatic of the so-called misogynistic patriarchy.

The foolish notion that some of the reviewers here have ("the idea that a gay leader is some pervert out to molest little kids is just one more prejudice") goes against reality. The fact is that the Boy Scouts have long been a haven for homosexual perverts, as the soon-to-be-released "perversion files" that are at the center of a 2010 lawsuit. These files have information on the over 1200 homosexual perverts that have been in the Boy Scout movement since the 60s.

Think about it, as a well funded lobby and a service organization, Big Cancer has a vested interest in making sure a cure isn't found.
