Time moves on, end of delineation


Boy Scouts are now going to allow Girls so they may charge headlong into those realms once held for Boys and young men, HOWEVER no tit for tat as Girl Scouts are ONLY allowing those Transgender Boys into their midst. Double standards at work yet again.

Why not meld the Two scouting groups into a Blanket "Scouts" for any and all? That to me would be 'Equal standard'.

Re: Time moves on, end of delineation


I was a Boy Scout as well a Explorer. Girls after age 16 WERE allowed in Explorers as we even as a distinct division of Boy Scouting were a extension off shoot for growing Pre-adults but was discontinued due to lack of interest and participation.

As an Old scout I will probably discontinue the donations I once sent there as it is NO LONGER the marked association I felt comfortable growing with.

Of My nephews only two of five were scouts, one made Eagle but as I noted in the endeavor was no where near the requirements as when I was making my attempt. I made Life scout before became too old moving to Explorer Scouts, many that tried worked so very hard just ran out of time or had not the advantages to gain access to aspects where they could advance to Eagle Scout. The entire program is slighted today as I see it, giving more options and more leniency as to making the efforts and earning the Merit Badges. I had seen with my one nephew parents doing the majority of the work so their son could benefit from the title of Eagle Scout and had done little on his own to earn it. Eagle Scout no longer shines as it once did, forever tarnished in this man's eye.

The American boy scout movement don't allow atheists to join their ranks.

"Why not meld the Two scouting groups into a Blanket "Scouts" for any and all? That to me would be 'Equal standard'."

And of course these men would be in charge:

... given how men being charge of every is just the natural (and economic) order of things.

Why would the Girl Scouts want to merge with that crowd ?

I think the biggest reason is sometimes boys like to be together in a group and sometimes girls do as adult females and males do. They have the option to band together or not. Adults are the ones that make a big deal out of it.

Two separate organizations with their own rules.

But there are others -

Christian Alternative to Boy Scouts: We Still Proudly Exclude Girls and Gays!

Yesterday, the Boy Scouts of America announced that girls will be allowed to join as Cub Scouts and be eligible to earn the rank of Eagle Scout.

Without missing a beat, Trail Life USA, the conservative Christian alternative to the BSA, announced that they were still ]proudly excluding everyone they could.

FOCUS Shifty, on the OP, if you wish to start a post against other organizations do so but don't commandeer a previous.

As to Boy Scouts and their Oath:

Trustworthy,
Loyal,
Helpful,
Friendly,
Courteous,
Kind,
Obedient,
Cheerful,
Thrifty,
Brave,
Clean,
and Reverent.

Hard to be reverent if an Atheist.

Absolute heifer dust.

The word "reverent" has nothing to do with whether or not someone believes in an invisible superfriend - all it means is feeling or showing deep and solemn respect. Nothing to do with whether or not someone is an atheist.

==============================

BTW - you're the one that brought girl scouts into the discussion - all I did was point out that the two organizations you mentioned aren't the only ones out there and if you want to discriminate there are other organizations beyond these two.
