    I agree. They seem to be much better run, at least in my area.
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    Is this acceptable?

    How about BOYS in the Girl Scouts?

    Acceptable?

    Toughts?

    Combine them...?

    WHY?
    Back in the day I would have loved the idea of being a boy in girl scouts which is why I question putting them in the woods together in tents.

    So you don't understand why people hate 50/50 booking? Or why they don't like it being PG? Or why the Cornette's and Orton's of the world don't like all the "flippy ****"? I think you have better empathy and reasoning than that, even if you don't AGREE with them getting upset about such things.

    There's a large difference between personally not seeing a big deal about something, and not being able to see why someone else finds it a big deal.

    2 of those matter not at all to me, and I do not think you can call 50/50 booking minor. It is a really huge difference in product presentation.

    If anything they ought to just combine them. Both boys and girls scouts are primarily a bunch of nerds, its boring - maybe 10% of what they do is actually fun for kids, and its a pain in the ass for parents that have a son doing boy scouts and a daughter doing girl scouts.

    They both need to be completely reworked. Instead of all this garbage they do, what they should be are outdoor leadership organizations that function like NOLs but are available to everyone instead of just wealthy parents that can afford a program like NOLs. Work on getting kids fit. Require the scout masters and pack leaders to be fit themselves so they actually set an example. Teach them real outdoor skills and that should be 90% of the focus of scouting.

    My son did cub scouts when he was in elementary school. Mainly he did it because his best friends were in the same den. So every week I was stuck up there going to those meetings, 95% of which were boring as hell for everyone. This was on top of all the other crap we did like baseball, school activities and so on.

    When it was time to move from Cub Scouts to Boy Scouts I told him to just look at the kind of kids that do Boy Scouts these days. Its 90% a bunch of nerds whose parents don't know what to do with them, so they stick them in an organization like scouts instead of taking the time to do stuff with them themselves. Like I told him, I take you fishing all the time, we do backpacking trips, canoe trips and so on. All scouts does it take time away from us being able to do the things you enjoy doing. Not to mention, I don't know how you could do high school sports and scouts.
    Kinda the same for me and my girls with Girl Scouts... they stopped doing it as they got older.

    To you. To many people, it probably is a minor thing that doesn't really matter to much.

    To you, The BOY scouts, a group that for decades has been one focused around young boys coming together with other boys, learning in a sense how to "become men", suddenly allowing GIRLS into it is a "really huge different" in "organizational structure".

    You find 50/50 booking to not be minor, I find it to be far more minor than the change to PG. We're different people, with different values. What boggles my mind is despite the fact that I don't disagree with you, its VERY EASY for me to look at you and come up with some plausible reasons and a level of understanding in my head as to why, TO YOU, it is a major thing even though it isn't to me....and yet you claim to be incapable of doing such a thing yourself.

    It's one thing to think that it's stupid that people feel strongly about something or care about something; it's another thing to just utterly not even be able to comprehend or understand why they think that way.
