Man, first camping with flamers now girls. What they trying to be, Band Camp?
They've totally lost the concept that their core wasn't camping but its values and just keep alienating their base hoping for a different result.

This angers me.
No doubt they will change the name from Boy Scouts of America to Scouts of America.

Yes they do but that isn't good enough for all the liberals. Anything other than something all black is either sexist or racist.

Some people are like Slinkys. Pretty much useless but still make you smile when you push them down the stairs.
There is no right way to do something wrong.

Of course you're right, because the alternative would be to encourage little boys to join the Girl Scouts (which the perverts would also find acceptable).
I Will NOT Comply!

Boy Scouts...to gender specific. Need to allow transexuals in too. They can establish a Tranny 1st classed badge. How do you get one you might ask? Well must be on hormone replacement therapy, and only qualify once you start devolping breasts.
WTH is wrong with people today? Is it just me? Have I out lived values and principles from the past?
I will not comply.

This truly hurts my heart. I spent years as a Leader, spent lots of money and gave my time in hopes that I made a little difference in some young boys life. Lots of the boys didn't have a father figure around. For a couple hours a week and a weekend a month I tried to be there and help.
The bonding those boys made with the other scouts during camping, learning to fish, archery, BB gun shooting, building a fire, cooking over an open fire, setting up a camp, tieing knots, first aid, the lists goes on. Those are life time experiences that will be lost for the sake of liberalism. Sure many of these things can be done in a mixed setting but I promise you it is not the same. Boys cannot be boys and girls cannot be girls when the other is around.
I am saddened that another great American tradition is going away. Boys and girls are not the same, stop trying to treat them as such.

This truly saddens me! Some of my fondest memories are from my time in the Scouts.
When you find my body, surrounded by expended magazines and hot empty brass, smoke still curling from the barrel..... then you can have it!

This is soul crushing.
I don't need anger management. I need people to stop pissing me off.

I might be the soul dissenter but I don't see a problem with it. I wasn't a Scout but my son is and I don't think there will be a negative effect to the BSA.
I think segregation by gender is antiquated and more harmful than good particularly when the skills that are taught are not gender specific.
My guess the BSA will expand and eventually swallow up the Girl Scouts entirely. And you can bet your ass there will be some Girl Scouts swallowing Boy Scouts.

My take on this is different. I see it as a membership drive because of the drop in numbers from opening up first to gays and then to gay leaders. Numbers have been going down and they ar looking to swell the ranks nothing more.

At the expense of the Girl Scouts. Quite a dirty trick in my opinion and seems in violation of Boy Scout ethics.
Posted Oct. 11 2017 - 04:43 PM
So is pandering to moral people but they had done that before in the past too.
Posted Oct. 11 2017 - 05:00 PM
They still have girl scouts, correct? How many girls do they actually think will sign up for the boy scouts over the girl scouts.
I sure don't see this drawing enough new scouts to make any difference what so ever.
Posted Oct. 11 2017 - 05:04 PM
If it doesn't draw many girls over to the other side of the lake then it isn't going to be a big deal. But I think it will draw much more than that. I figure in 10 years they will be one entity, it just makes business sense.

An on the lighter side of stupidity :
I say lets have American Scouts !. An WHATEVER the Scouts do is OK , because we surely wouldn't want anyone's feeling hurt or deprive their individual rights or social skills ; correct ?!.

The goal of the Boy Scouts was never setup to be a business. Personally I am at peace with it coming to an end. The allowing of Gay leaders was the beginning of the end. Apparently the numbers are reflecting that. There was a time when being a Scout ment something to a young boy. As I said before maybe being a leader and seeing everything that scouting ment, I am very disappointed.
