Girl Scouts are much more different then Boy Scouts. My little sis was in GS...The couple of months she was with them all it was is them trying to sell things out of a catalog like candies and such. Didn't see much outdoors survival thing going. So I'm all for girls being in the Boy Scouts. They will actually learn something constructive then trying to sell things all the time.


This. They will be separated by sex as well. There will be girl troops and boy troops. I'd rather GSA adopt BSA programs though simply because I'm sick of controversy.


I would to...this wouldn't be an issue if it wasn't. I see GS good for those that ore of business type lifestyle. Bs is more twords independability.

Cub Scouts for the the surrvial aspect and
Penguin Scouts for the business aspect

Exactly-different for a reason-different interests and needs. Been a leader in both. I see this as the end of Scouting.

Boys need alone time with boys and girls need alone time with girls-especially when hormones start to kick in.

This is shortsighted, politically motivated and dumb.

I would have quit my district positions and yanked my kids out. This defeats the purpose of growing up in a real world. Guys and gals many times want to be alone with their own genders who can empathize with each other. Enough with the political correctness-I see a new battle coming.

Just because someone is a perv doesn't mean they're equal opportunity molesters.

It's bad enough they have to try to screen out sickos that'd do sick things to boys, but now having to screen for sickos against boys or girls or BOTH is playing with fire. There's a lot of sick sick people out there.

Pretty foolish argument...the Boys Scouts name IS gender specific.

So then kick out all the male adult scout leaders so women can teach the boys (and girls) how to be a boy in the woods?

I just wanted to see what you'd say. So you frame the secular goals of BSA as gender-neutral, then write the whole organization off as "religious".

Are their goals religious or secular? Make up your mind.

If there was a perv that liked to do bad things to girls. I wouldn't want him influencing my boys...

i really dont care either way
seems like enough pervs are in the scouts anyway.

en.wikipedia.org...


There were nearly 2,000 reported cases of abuse within the Boy Scouts of America prior to 1994, and at least one abuse incident as recent as 2006



In 2010, a jury ordered that the Scouts pay $18.5 million to a Scout who was abused in the 1980s—it was the largest punitive damages award to a single plaintiff in a child abuse case in the US

Ok so why are you even debating this? Why do you care what they do when all you really want is to see the entire thing go belly up?

This will make them go belly up. What are you complaining about?
