  1. I can't disagree with that.
  2. I guess since anyone can join, why not: http://www.trendolizer.com/2017/10/boy-scouts-to-allow-old-men-into-cub-scouts-program.html
  3. Boy Scouts has always been a safe and fun place for boys to be boys. A place for boys to learn to be men. That's exactly what it was made for in the first place. It has always been a place were boys gather together to learn from men. It builds better men for the future. It's not anti-girl, but pro-boy. I think that's important. At the same time, girls should have the same thing. That's what Girl Scouts are about. What is wrong with it being a boys club? Why is exclusivity so hated now? Mentorship and education for boys from men is a good thing, not a bad thing. I would never want to force boys into Girl Scouts, that's their thing and should stay that way. This move goes against everything that the group was established for in the first place. I have no problem with a coed group that teaches both boys and girls the same thing as Boy Scouts, if parents want to put their children in it, that's fine. But don't force it upon a group that doesn't want it. Someone earlier said that this won't "ruin" Boy Scouts. I disagree. It completely changes it and makes it something completely different. It fundamentally is no longer BOY Scouts.
  4. It seems like nothing but a money grab to me. Boy Scouts has been hemorrhaging members in the last decade. After they announced that gay and "transgendered" kids could be in, their numbers dropped significantly. Now they're getting scared so they figure that they'll cater even more to the pressure of the left and allow girls. What they don't realize is that Scouting is so far from what it was originally and has lost so much of it's focus and meaning. Doing this just furthers that. Next thing they'll remove God from Scouting, then guns, etc. Until it's unrecognizable by anyone. It makes me ashamed to be a part of it anymore. When did exclusivity become such a bad thing to so many?

    I've tried to learn sign language before. I'm partially deaf (about 80% deaf in one ear and 10% in the other, which I suppose would be insulting to any truly deaf person to call myself deaf) so I've always thought that it would be good to at least know some sign language. I've never been any good at it though. I commend anyone who can use it proficiently.

    What?? I almost fainted when I read that. Balderdash I say!

    Transgender policy change

    I agree 100%.
  8. I didn't realize that either. It gives me hope that I might get one now after some vast clerical error.

    Transgender policy change

    I would argue that that is a very, very different situation.

    Sounds like a great time to me.

    Transgender policy change

    @@gumbymaster, I like to think so. I'm pretty much open to most anything. I like everyone. But I'll always voice my opinion if asked. When you're as ugly as I am, it's hard to be judgmental of others.

    Transgender policy change

    I believe the remark was made towards me. I took no offence whatsoever to it. Just one person stating his opinion and using a word that is misunderstood by so many nowadays. We have differing opinions and you are welcome to voice yours.

    I wouldn't think that there would be any issues. The policies of other countries Scouting organizations are probably not a very big deal to us. I think the point of our pushback with the transgender issue in the BSA is just the principle of it (at least to me anyway). I don't hate transgenders. Never have. And I have no problem with them being in a Scouting program. Just not a group designed for boys only. I imagine that that is the same for most of us that are against it. I would never force myself into the Girl Scouts even if for some reason I wanted to be a girl. But it's our program, our history, our group. Scouting from other countries is those countries group. If they've chosen to let them in, then that's on them.
