4-H has long been a staple in rural schools and communities. 4-H started as "The Tomato Club" and now, more than a hundred years later, the majority of participants are still in rural, agricultural communities.
And in case you didn't notice, agricultural communities are extremely conservative. Not exactly the rainbow-flag waving types.
But despite all that, today 4-H changed their profile picture on Facebook replacing the traditional green clover with the four H's with a rainbow clover.
For those of you unfamiliar with 4-H, the H's stand for "Head, Heart, Hands, and Health" but perhaps in this case we could say Head, Heart, Hands, and Hedonism.
Commenters on Facebook are not happy - 4-H is a program for CHILDREN. Sexuality shouldn't be a central focus on an organization that's historically taught things like agriculture, cooking, and civic engagement.
If 4-H keeps this up, they're guaranteed to alienate the 3 million rural participants in their youth programs.
