Though not appropriate for a motivational quote, I still like to recite this mantra in regards to how to handle troublesome issues.

Run in circles,
Scream and shout
Found in various works of Robert A. Heinlein
As an SM I appreciate when informed of this kind of parental interference.

My one thought is "separate but equal" in the honor camping organization will see National fighting in the court of public opinion on a Title IX lawsuit. It may get thrown out of federal court, but it'll be a publicity struggle, and we all know how BSA has performed in recent court of public opinion battles.
Now, if the suit is against a local council in a state court...and it's the right state...KATEY Bar the Door.
We road tripped to the Burpee Museum in Rockford, IL for their Archaeology merit badge class. The museum has Jane, a juvenille T-Rex and an interesting display of Triceratops-type skulls. They also have a paleontology lab, a lot of fossils and the museum runs trips to Montana and Utah.
