So this pin is less about the actual image and more about the story. A 17 year old male was denied his Eagle Scout Award because of his sexual orientation. I find it absurd that this is even possible.He met the requirements, and they  told him that he couldn't earn it because he is gay. I think it goes to show how ingrained the systems of privilege and oppression are in our society. Inequalities are clearly built in the structures of social institutions, such as Boy Scouts.
