    So if it doesn't affect my life directly, then I shouldn't have any opinion on it whatsoever? Got it. I'll try to remember that.

    Politically, this is significant because BSA (until recently) has been a stronghold for the traditional values that I typically embody. The same values that continue to come under relentless attack by social justice warriors. So as I continue to watch this organization implode, it does concern me in a way.

    In my opinion, that's how that works. If something has little-to-no impact on my life I'm not going to care about it. It's just gonna take away from things that do actually matter to me. I don't care how anybody else lives their life, I'm just trying live better than just getting by.

    Some of you are making assumptions that this doesn't effect anyone.... what about the scout leaders? This will be a big change that effects them

    Now they need to deal with girls and boys when they signed up to deal with just boys

    Is that a problem? Nothing's really going to change. Girls are just going to be learning the same stuff boys are. No reason to treat them any differently.

    Well, several of the scout leaders I know think so. But maybe that's just the circle I'm in :)

    Well, like mentioned before in this thread there's the distractions of opposite sexes, it's not just the scouts but the leaders too. It's bad enough with some of the leaders preying on the boys but now it's gonna be even more likely to have inappropriate things happening with the girls. Also, sometimes they like to just get away from the house with ladies and spend some time with just other guys and boys.

    That's a problem with shitty people, not the Scouts organization

    So should these people be in power? Sounds like a problem with them.

    lol, have you raised a boy and a girl in the same house? Or do you have a sister? If you think you're going to treat your daughter the same way as your boy, you got a lot to learn my friend.
    These eagle scout leaders didn't sign up for this shit. Now it's being shoved down their throats. So yes, it's a problem.

    The differences between boys and girls at the age of 7-10 years old when they enter cub scouts?

    Yeah. Why treat them differently?

    I feel it's archaic (and unfair) to exclude girls from Scouting. It was very productive for me.

    We aren't saying to exclude them! They have their own club they can go scouting in! They should change their own club not hijack another......

    Girl Scouts have different kinds of badges, is far less about wilderness training, and the activity most known to the public is selling Girl Scout cookies. Calling Girl Scouting the female version of Boy Scouting is inaccurate.

    @4WideRacing already addressed that though:
    The fact that the goal was to get girls into Boy Scouts instead of pressuring Girl Scouts to change their program makes it glaringly obvious that this is about an agenda.
