Personally, I don't care what they call it or who they let in.

We tried doing Cub Scouts this year and my son asked if we could quit going. He said the kids were so misbehaved that it wasn't fun. He's seven. I just about fell over. I'd rather have a few well-behaved girls in a pack than the little heathens that were in our pack.

I think it's a shame. For the girls too. There's nothing wrong with having a few places left that boys can be boys and girls can be girls, without the complicating factor of the opposite gender. (Assuming, of course, that the girl scouts aren't just taught needlework and the boy scouts aren't just taught frog-gigging; and that most other places in their lives they get plenty of mixed-gender exposure. So to speak. erp.)

the term "boy" is to masculine.


Males, especially white males, are the target source right now.

I always preferred to scout for girls. I saw where they figure to separate them at the high school level. I have news about that. Better do it sooner than that.

Scouts BSA will have separate units for the girls and the boys, so it appears there are no plans to make it co-ed.
Boy scout enrollment is down 12% from 5 years ago. My guess is they will target the sisters of Boy Scouts to make
participation easier for parents schedules.

Lot of churches that sponsored troops dropped out during the gay snafu.
They formed another scouting organization, I can’t remember the name.

Boy Scout troop I was in sucked. The highlight of our meetings was to walk to the local store and buy penny candy. I never got past the rank of tenderfoot. It would be impossible to overstate how much better it would have been if girls were there.
