    That is not how you use it. Are you not going to answer where the exception is or not?

    I'm taking it you don't have an answer to my question. I guess I win then.

    You've got nothing

    The law forbids businesses from discriminating on the basis of several factors like race, gender, etc

    So laugh all you like. I've got the law on my side.

    As an Eagle Scout myself, I will say that I can't support this decision and because of it I will no longer be able to support the BSA. I've contacted the NESA (National Eagle Scout Association) by email and asked them to cancel my membership. I've also asked the local BSA Council to cease all contact with me.

    And, no, you aren't funny. Trying to put everyone in a particular negative connotation just because they belong to a particular group shows that you hold some negative feelings toward that group. This is a debate, not your personal standup test platform.
    What is negative about what girl scouts do?

    No you don't. The constitution is against you

    Plenty, at least when I was in (which granted was many years ago). There are also good things, but girl scouts are definitely not like boy scouts and many of the more adventurous girls, like myself, would much rather have been/be in an organization where we learned to rough it in the woods, like the boys do, rather than simply "camping out" in a building with mattresses and where our project was to make ribbon dancers and learn a dance to do with them.

    Sorry but this is just your preference, not the law. Many states prohibit businesses from discriminating on several factors. There was some thread where a florist or something other in the northwest is being sued by the attorney general in that state for refusing to do business with gay couples, as one example.
