While I cannot speak specifically on the Girl Scouts of America, since boys, or grown men are not allowed (I would look silly in a skirt, a kilt
maybe, but no skirts, thank you), I am an adult member of the Boy Scouts of America.
I find it dismally offending that people speak about an organization, without ever having been a part of it themselves, whether you agree with the
Government or not, and I have my qualms about the Government, you should actually know about self-reliance, self-esteem, and honorable values that are
taught, before trashing an organization and equivalating them with the Little Orphan Annie's Nazi youth.
Since no one has bothered posting any sort of website references, I went and found these for people to actually look at the good parts of what this
organization that is supposed to teach values for young girls and young women.

coin and you are in fact gyping yourself out of knowing whether you are truly blind to the intelligence you thought you had, and you had only half the
Without intelligent thought the world would be turned into a smoldering ashen wasteland, and you just might need those who are taught to be prepared
to assist you, and if they were to know you thrash them, they will still reach out their hand and offer assistance whether you like them or not.
Next thing you know, people will start saying the United Nations is training
