    Agreed. I mean sure, gay, tranny, whatever. That's been around forever, but why is there such a push to blur the lines for everyone as a whole?

    i think people are connecting differences with inequality, which is clearly dumb. men and women are different, but they're equally valuable. the same with other innate differences we have. the powers that be are really fucking up our world.

    You know who else tried to get everyone to think women are the same as men? Mao. And people think he was nuts.

    Liberals ruining the world. And I'm not a conservative. I'm an issues guy. But this is fucking retarded. Men and women ARE different. We are supposed to be attracted to each other. We do all sorts of things throughout life to get noticed and be in each other's worlds. The Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts is a break from that. Just be yourself and learn what is taught in the programs. I'm no Archie Bunker. I have a daughter and a son. They are different. Has nothing to do with pre determined gender roles. Fucking idiots.

    There was a Canadian feminist who made headlines many years ago when she said something along the lines of 'whenever groups of men got together outside the purview of women invariably misogynistic ideas would flourish. So it was woman's obligation to insert themselves into those spaces as much as possible to ensure these all male environments did not exist'. She was quoted another time saying something like 'women need safe places where they can associate with just women and explore ideas and issues unique to women.'

    Of course she rustled lots of people.

    Want to know what the funny part is? I think I'm the only person on here who was a Boy Scout, much less made it to Eagle Scout.

    BTW, my boobs totally fill out an A cup bra now!

    When people start accepting that not everything is the same for genders and races, we will be better off. Cultures ARE different. Genders ARE different. That's OK. The world used to be misogynistic and discriminatory....but now we have gone past the middle the whole other way. Extremes are never balanced. We can't let loud mouth whiners dictate policy.

    I think I mentioned this in another thread, but life as a Boy Scout is very different when you're a military brat and growing up on Army bases. All of your scoutmasters are Army NCOs and officers. Your Survival merit badge is serious bidness when it's taught by guys who went to SEREs instead of dirty hippies. "Dirty hippies" is what I thought I was surrounded by when my dad retired from the Army and I joined a civilian troop.

    Makes sense the little kids do two fingered salutes and three fingers are for teenagers and full salutes for adults, no?

    Lol. Are they expected to get much bigger or what? How does that work.

    A cup is good tho. You can fit into all the cute bras.

    Apparently selling cookies isn’t as glamorous as they thought.
