Typical way the males try to take care of themselves expecting the females to accept their (males) decisions at the females expense and without the females opinion. Not only a monitory reason but a power play. A good lesson to teach the Boy Scouts isn't it?
Yes, what could possibly go wrong here. I wonder how many girls will get pregnant in the first year? Follow the money, because that's what it's all about.
Maybe we could get Harvey Weinstein and Caitlyn Marie Jenner, formerly known as Bruce Jenner (note: here in Kalifornia if we use the wrong pronoun we can go to jail ~ so let's be careful how we describe who we are talking about) to teach moral ethics and dating customs to the scouts (boys and/or girls). Maybe the boys can teach the girls how to cook and the girls can teach the boys how to build a fire! Or is it the other way around? Oh well, I'm sure our crack Kalifornia legislature can pass some new laws that will clarify everyones new rolls in life.
This entire move is "dumber than dirt". What idiot thought up this maneuver? Watch the new "Girl/Boy Scouts" start turning up pregnant after camp-outs. The "hue and cry" will go up and the Boy Scouts will be called upon to disband.
These morons have been smoking some controlled substances.
What a shame. I grew up without a father in the house and Boy Scouts was a positive force in my life when I needed it the most. My Scoutmaster, deceased now, was a great man and served as a positive role model for myself and others. I was fortunate to grow up in the N.C. mountains and our troop was always doing something every weekend. Camping, hiking, canoeing, community service. It was great!
We actually had a tomboy girl that used to hang with us unofficially from time to time, but everyone just considered her one of the guys so it was not an issue. There are other organizations such as the Explorers that take both sexes but they are older, over 18 It would be more appropriate to just keep the Boy scouts as boys and the girl scouts as girls.
And bring the firearms training back into the mix, I have a Boy Scout camp that backs up to my property that has a really nice gun range from when they use to use .22's like we did. The Sheriffs dept uses it now since the Boy Scouts are not allowed to shoot .22's anymore. Just silly foolishness.
Once upon a time, there used to be a wonderful organization called the Boy Scouts. They had a few different subsets such as the Cub Scouts and Explorers. Then came the gay scout masters, followed by gay scouts, now followed by girls in all parts of the organization. I expect to see the complete demise of what was once a wonderful organization within 5 years.
The Girl Scouts accused "the dwindling Boy Scout membership for the about face policy." It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out why membership in the Boy Scouts is dwindling.
