    Zero accountability of the unit leaders...

    Never ever voice an opinion to a leader

    You are not qualified to be a leader because you are male.

    You are not from our school/neighborhood/social group/race/religion/financial class you cannot join our troop

    Oh call the council office they will get back to you with a unit.......Been making that call the first monday of every month now for 2 years.

    Oh lets do this crafty thing.....Sell cookies.....

    BTW where did all that cookie and dues money go?????

    Leader quits the unit is dead.

    None of the GS troops I have seen own anything of any significance. No tents, outdoor kitchens.....Nothing.

    The only thing the GSUSA has over the BSA is a national recongizable fundraiser. Beyond that it is a train wreck.....
    Basement, there is a slightly better way GSUSA units can be ran, and I would have put it a bit more kindly, but in the end you've defined Girl Scout Troop function quite well. My oldest was a girl scout (she's soon to be 30 now), and I did help out in a number of roles, but never that of leader ... it was made clear that my wife was appreciated as a leader, but I was not correctly equipped.

    Train wreck sums it up quite well.

    BSA needs to go full co-ed top to bottom, I know many girls, from 7-14, who would line up to participate in the program our Pack and Troop offers.
