Not all boys have dads that spend time with them. Or, if they do, they just aren't into camping type stuff.

I can't get but just a couple of dads to help me on trips. Men need to step up to the plate and get off their lazy butts. That's what's wrong with this country.

And here come the ladies.

Just saw this too. So are they going to change the name to "People Scouts"? Or is that still to specific? Should it be "Gender Neutral Scouts" since we let gays in too? "Human Scouts"? That one may offend someone too.

Now we can have Girl Scout/Boy Scout cookies year round!!!!!

Who will be the first girl???? You know somebody is dying to get airtime for being a pioneer and breaking down the barrier.

This will not end well for the scouts. The NFL saw America isn't so fond of the politically correct. Now the Boy Scouts are pushing that 10 fold. Soon the only troops will be in California. Maybe someone will start a private group for the boys that want to learn about outdoors etc.

This is a sad day but not surprising

On the plus side.... now rob may have some nice ladies to volunteer to help out on those camping trips.

Wingman called this over 3 years ago. I don't understand the PC culture or what the end game actually is.

I'm pretty sure the scoutmaster in Greenville is a female. My son wants to participate because several of his buddies are but I refuse. If I could renounce my rank of eagle scout I would in a heartbeat.

No you wouldn't, because when we earned Eagle it meant something.

It's still worth something. It was under the Old Guard. We can always say that.

The boy's not going to be irreparably harmed due to the presence of a woman in troop leadership.

Yes, I would. It's simply a matter of principle.

You might be right, but it's a shame that a Boy Scout troop is led by a female. I say this not to demean the leadership ability of this particular female or any in general, but to point out the fact that in so many situations of female leadership where male leadership is preferable (and there are many), the reason is not that the female has pursued it in competition with her male counterparts. The reason is that there are no able and willing males taking the initiative to step up to the plate to lead.
