    My nieces were girl scouts. They do all kinds of stuff. Not sure why they want in on the boy scouts to be honest.

    I worked with a young woman recenty (21 years old) who talked about this. She wanted to join boy scouts because girl scouts wasn't masculine enough for her (my words, not hers). She tried to argue there shouldn't be gender exclusive "clubs". I disagree, and told her to start her own inclusive boy scout like club... As a society, this seems like the wrong path to go down, where does it end? Men being welcomed in women's bathrooms?...

    I think it's because the girl scouts are lame and doesn't match up with current ideologies of empowerment. And I suspect that rewriting its entire identity would be too expensive and difficult for the girl scouts.

    Outside magazine did a great bit on this not long ago.
    Considering I grew up (and currently reside) in one of the outdoor meccas of the US, I feel I can speak to this. Girls where I grew up didn't do girl scouts because the gals were into epic shit. They climbed, hiked, skied, and all of that. Boy scouts are more rugged, and I think follow an older model of what manhood is. Now, as dumb as essentializing masculinity is, what the boy scouts are doing is more primal that what the girl scouts are doing, the way it empowers relates more to what contemporary ideas of gender are after.

    So I'm all about girls joining boy scouts, but they need to delineate now between 'boy' scouts and 'girl' scouts. Because girl scouts don't do shit in the wilderness compared to boy scouts/eagle scouts, it simply needs to be rehashed. There should be Scouts. Or, keep them separate and really build up the girl scouts.

    the girls scouts leader is wrong.

    "Meanwhile, the Girl Scouts say “the need for female leadership has never been clearer or more urgent than it is today—and only Girl Scouts has the expertise to give girls and young women the tools they need for success.”

    "The benefit of the single-gender environment has been well-documented by educators, scholars, other girl- and youth-serving organizations, and Girl Scouts and their families. Girl Scouts offers a one-of-a-kind experience for girls with a program tailored specifically to their unique developmental needs."


    that doesn't sound like equals, it makes it sound like girls need special treatment.



    also, bitch, girls are half the population. don't use the words like "unique" if you dont know what it means.

    are boys allowed to join the girl scouts?
    if you're going to allow girls to join the boy scouts, it would only be fair to allow the opposite too.

    I'm surprised it took almost two whole pages before someone said this. I'd have to guess no, and the excuse would be something like "boys have too much testosterone/wouldn't be good to mix the two blah blah"...some stuff that in any situation that didn't favor girls, they'd argue boys and girls are equal so girls should be able to do what boys do.

    Some people are walking contradictions, I tell ya.
