Hello fellow woke gentlemen,

I'm a lurker when it comes to reddit, but TRP has truly helped me a lot in life and the material I've shared with friends has had very positive and tangible effects on their lives as well. Moderators, I know my account is a bit inactive, but please acknowledge this post. Thank you's aside, something has very recently occurred that I need to share, and this appears the place to do it.

That event: https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/business/wp/2018/05/02/boy-scouts-drop-the-boy-as-they-welcome-girls-to-scouts-bsa/?noredirect=on

A few days ago, it was announced that the Boy Scouts of America is dropping "Boy" from its name, as it allows girls to enter its cub and boy scout ranks. The campaign to allow in girls has been raging for years now, from my perspective beginning because some girls (or more likely their parents) want the prestigious title of Eagle Scout, the highest rank and honor of the former BSA, on their resume. It has already lost a bit of its shine in recent years as standards/checks have faltered, but just wait to see how it will diminish going forward. Mommy's little girl will get that rank, or else.

There does exist the Girl Scouts, a comparatively boring and uncool organization, as well as Venture Scouts, an excellent organization under the same people that's coed and is often involved in BSA activities, sharing resources (They are the ones that wear the green uniforms). The Girl Scouts complained the other day about their membership being stolen. I don't blame them, maybe they should let boys in!

This is, above all, an invasion of male space on a new level. This organization will not survive it: it WILL fundamentally change because of girls' entry. Some of the involved activities; construction service projects, shooting sports and training, war games, survival endurance competitions and tests, hands-on first aid training, peculiar, near fraternal, initiation rites among internal troops and OA groups; are doomed with the inflow of girls. They, particularly the resume-builders, will not want any part of these 'difficult' and 'testing' things. They will critique them, embarrass the boys doing them, and make them unpopular. The coming of age rituals, at least what's left of them, will be interrupted. That's how females operate in society. We have just opened the BSA and its young, developing males to be closely judged. The BSA is no longer a place for young guys to be themselves and relax in the outdoors with other males.

It will now devolve into a messy, coed summer camp with drama and worry. Uniforms will become mere fashion statements. Just look at the picture circulating now of the girl cub scout with an untucked dress-uniform shirt, ridiculous. Imagine how the summer camps will need to segregate the showers, tents, and changing areas; prevent underage intercourse or even the extreme of statutory rape (13 YOs and 18 YOs in same troop); and how awkward in general inter-troop dynamics will become. Things will go from tribes of boys to conflicts between tribes of both sexes. Let your mind run wild for a sec. Why add this confusion and upset to a happy organization? Welcome to corrosive progressivism.

Some may ask if the current BSA leadership will enforce strict rules and hold the girls up to the male standard. I will say now that this will not happen. The leadership, many of whom are the parents of these little snowflakes, will cave to the crying girl every time. We have already had the problem of female adult leadership in the Scouts, which has often led to issues involving the vested interests of mothers and the weaknesses of their momma's boys.

There are a few alternatives for boys now, but none are as national, respected, and funded as the BSA. I do not know how I will ensure my future sons will have the experiences, training, and wholesome fun I have had as a scout. The BSA has existed for the past 100 years to provide military/draft-ready men, with traditional values, who could survive on their own in a variety of situations, from infrastructure collapses to small emergency situations. The motto is "Be Prepared."

As an Eagle Scout and Brotherhood member of the OA, less than two years out of the organization, I am beyond disheartened by this. One of the last bastions of hope fell this week. We know how impossible it is for things to regress these days. America has just lost one of her finest institutions. I guess I'm just old patriarchal history now. I will forever be a proud former member of the BSA, but never of the 'Scouts BSA.'

EDIT: (fixed some grammar) It is nice to see so many old scouters on TRP, thank you for giving my thoughts a read! It's very true, some of the most intense, nostalgic experiences thousands of others and I have had have been in scouting; some of my closest friends are old troop buddies. Those nights in the woods and myriad of injuries/challenges made me tough. Also, I learned to appreciate the trades, something forgotten about in our "everyone goes to college" society. We all can hardly wait to see the female response to the lifesaving, wilderness survival, pioneering, and automotive maintenance merit badges. Or the fact that the cooking one is mandatory...

My grief begins with the lack of a fight against this change. The Mormons are allegedly withdrawing 180k boys, but otherwise the majority of the membership is against it, yet no one is very audibly speaking out. Is there censorship? Hidden interests? Very possibly, and our male youth will lose out on a hell of a lot of the needed seeds of virility as a result. A point was made in the comments that needs to be repeated: this decision came as a demand from above. Local councils, scoutmasters, the scouts themselves were never asked for their say. This was an order from the progressive executives on top of the organization. A scary metaphor for what could come in our other institutions...

At the Girl Scouts of Greater Chicago and Northwest Indiana, where enrollment is up for the third year in a row, CEO Nancy Wright took the opportunity to emphasize the differences between the boy and girl scouts.

“We’ve always had the word ‘girls’ in Girl Scouts, because it’s indicative of where our focus is,” she said. “We believe we’re the experts, based on our years of developing programs for girls.” —Source

Funny how this logic is not being applied to the Boy Scouts.

[–][deleted] 103 points104 points  (3 children)

She's essentially speaking out against it.

But that's what happens when you receive pressure from our liberal society.

[–]ThePantsThief 21 points22 points  (2 children)

Good on her. Wish whoever was running the B SA thought like that.

[–]Troll_Name 4 points5 points  (1 child)

BSA died ages ago this is just a late funeral.

If the unisex scouts cause fewer people to become girl scouts then good there will be fewer aggressive panhandlers camping at the grocery store entrance.

[–]Luckyluke23 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]batfish55 505 points506 points  (20 children)

That really pisses me off.

Females having their own private spaces? Great!

Males having their own private spaces? Misogyny!

[–]PolishHammerMK 124 points125 points  (17 children)

We don't have a chance in hell for the future of our boys if we don't do something, say something.

[–]Pie_021 20 points21 points  (0 children)

Finally. I said something like this before and some people brushed me off. We need advocates and groups to support men. If we don't they sure as hell won't. Do it now because tomorrow we might not be here.

[–]r4nd01 1 points1 points [recovered]

you guys are so concerned about the negative influence women can have on men, but are completely ignoring the damage adult men can do, and have already done, to boys in the context of a group like BSA.

For a boy to come back from having been sexually abused, and become a red pill man, requires at least triple the amount of effort as it does for the average beta male.

yes i think feminism is a cancer, but we men must also share much of the blame for the decline of our societies, for having turned a blind eye to blatantly established patterns of child sexual abuse for so many decades.

no fuckin way would i allow my son to go into the woods with some grown man who spends his free time hanging out with preteen boys.

[–]adam_varg 1 points1 points [recovered]

you got one thing right and that's adult leaders of boy groups are often pedophile

that's pretty common, and usually they are those are the most favorite by kids

what you missed is, this is not just about boyscouts leaders, its the same situation with coaches, teachers, preacher virtually anybody who supervise kids on regular voluntarily

here in central europe we 'treat' (therapy.. libido killing meds.. chemical castration) pedophiles for free and anonymously for 5 decades already, so our sexuology field have lots of data, this stereotype is accurate (i am talking about pedophiles, not sexual predators who picks kids as easy victim ).. chances are that cool coach your boys love is pedo, luckily for society, chances of him abusing your boys is almost non existent..

If you read this and think i am excusing them or whatever, you are simpleton. My point is you cant shield your kids from pedophiles unless you isolate them from society, because Females aren't better, same percent of pedophiles, similar percent of abuse they just don't penetrate victim so its not worthy of media attention.

[–]IFUCKOWLS 1 points1 points [recovered]

because Females aren't better As a dude who was molested by several different women as a child, but never by a man, thanks for bringing this up. It's pretty fucking frustrating always seeing men demonised as the only ones capable of abusing children.

[–]cogentat 7 points8 points  (0 children)

you are simpleton

read this in Borat's voice, lol. You are right tho.

[–]Psychocist 6 points7 points  (1 child)

yes i think feminism is a cancer, but we men must also share much of the blame for the decline of our societies,

Exactly. We constantly tout about responsibility, about how we're the ones who build civilisation, and yet it is suddenly not our fault when difficult issues arise and we should clean our hands of it and "enjoy the decline", abandon long-term commitment and child rearing (leave that to the betas) and.. what.. be flushed out within a generation? Pathetic, really.

I honestly don't think half of us know what to do. It's a shit situation. Will likely take us many centuries to self-correct.

[–]throwawaycuzmeh 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Feminism is a cancer, but that doesn't mean it isn't our fault.

As for pedos gravitating towards institutions and positions of youth engagement, that's something we used to address with vigilante justice. Some crimes are so egregious that they cannot be properly handled by the state.

[–]-ATLAS-_ 4 points5 points  (1 child)

I don't think people ignore them, there's been lots of posts elsewhere about it, it's just usually seen as a separate subject.

[–]HobbitForest 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Don't worry, Islam will fix all of this. In a bloody and unpleasant way, of course, but so it goes. Nature does not tolerate weakness, liberals need to take a page out of their own book and read up on fucking evolution.

[–]batfish55 -1 points0 points  (1 child)

Do you have kids? I don't, and I'm snipped, so I won't. Never wanted them. So longevity of the world doesn't really matter to me.

I don't know what's going to end the world first: Trump, global warming, or randomness. But I'm confident I'll die of old age or random accident, so, fuck it. I'm content to watch it all fall apart.

[–]Troll_Name 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Trump, global warming, or randomness.


ISIS vanished like the JV team they were, without them Iraq and Afghanistan aren't helpless victims anymore for the first time in many readers' lives, Saudi Arabia (more to credit but they'll never take it) is reforming itself from stone age to mid 20th century socially, and the decade of "recovery" finally recovers.

global warming

Move out of California then; I really hoped this 'warming' would help my seeds sprout a few weeks early in the ground but dangit not a single one did. Guess I'll have to start them indoors with cardboard cups next year, maybe the warming will come through in another millennium or three when the current declining ice age finishes thawing.


Ah yes, the Big Diceroll. Critical failure so hard the universe resets.

[–]carb0ncl1mber 330 points331 points  (22 children)

Men are biologically programmed to pursue women, often above all else. If you put women in an environment with young men, the men will become focused on gaining the attention of the women. They will not care for building bonds between each other. Competition for her attention will be the focus.

In some places, that's perfectly fine. Summer camp is great for that. But that wasn't the point of the Boy Scouts. The point of the Boy Scouts was to strengthen specific skills in males and encourage cooperation. If you don't have women to distract you, you can focus on these other tasks. Introducing women will distract from and dilute the purpose of the entire organization.

It's pretty simple. None of this is mysogynistic. None of this means women are 'less' than men, in any way. Why THE FUCK .... is this becoming an equality issue ...?

[–]Reformed65 1 points1 points [recovered]

And then the feminazis will cry "OUR GIRLS MUST BE PROTECTED!" And shame boys into acting in a certain way, the "Boys" Scout will then fall to shit because of PC controls and anti-masculinity measures.

Typical cycle, men create something great, women whine about not being a part of that, eventually they become part of that and everything turns into shit. Repeat. It happened to great civilisations throughout time, nothing's defending an organisation.

[–]KekistanRefugee 32 points33 points  (2 children)

Liberal degenerates ruin everything they touch. Boy Scouts will be no exception to this natural law.

[–]-ATLAS-_ 4 points5 points  (1 child)

What I wonder is if numbers were down anyways for Boy Scouts. I wouldn't guess they were gaining in popularity, and I wouldn't doubt if this is a marketing run to gain numbers. My guess is that Girl Scouts isn't as excited about this.

[–]Pragmaticpandas 6 points7 points  (0 children)

This is deeper than just a marketing run. This is feminist liberal agendas influencing and changing a century old male organization, despite the fact a female alternative readily exists (Girl Scouts).

[–]Frenetic_Zetetic 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Women are the liberals of biology.

[–]SKRedPill 22 points23 points  (0 children)

Power is a drug. Whenever anyone says equality, just replace it with power, and watch all inconsistencies vanish.

[–]irate_killah 38 points39 points  (3 children)

Often times during troop meetings, some of the other scouts' siblings (meaning girls, since brothers were usually also in the troop) would be there, usually just before and after the meetings. And I've seen some scouts do some pretty stupid shit just to try and impress. Hell, even good friends from the same patrol start going for each other's necks for a chance to try and look cool in front of the girls. Especially since most scouts are in their pubescent teenage years, it definitely lead to lots of drama that was pretty much pointless and detracted from whatever we were doing. I'd imagine that would be only the tip of the iceberg in this case where girls are there at literally every scouting meeting and event.

[–]Possum-King 11 points12 points  (1 child)

Most boyscout camps also don’t have the facilities or money to accommodate girls. Changing girlscouts and getting rid of the cookie cult part of it is a financially better option for the organization, would bring in more members even if the ceo of girlscouts isn’t making her almost $400,000 dollars. At the very least let boys into girlscouts if they claim this is for equality.

[–]PutItAllOnRed 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Don't worry. They won't be going to camp anyway. It will be sit down and be quiet and play nice, just like girl scouts.

[–][deleted] 6 points7 points  (0 children)

This is one of the reasons I don't like women in the workplace. Men start getting stupid trying to one-up each other.

[–]th33unsaltednutt[🍰] 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Being a part of boy scouts. The best thing I learned is the value in comraderie and brotherhood. The value in that triumphs what ever pussy came across us and my brothers. Sadly that is not going to be learned anymore since they want to add girls in the mix so young boys do not have the chance to bond and learn the values of brotherhood. It seems to create an environment of pussy chasing. The feminist seem to realize that brotherhood is a huge threat to them so why not stop it.

[–]k-ma 8 points9 points  (8 children)

Not trying to defend this change, as I don’t support it, but there are separate units for boys and girls.

[–]Starchman 8 points9 points  (2 children)

Someone was telling me this the other night at work and when you come from a small rural town like I did I just dont believe it. They WILL be integrated in small areas. There is hardly enough boys so a new entire unit for the one or two girls who want to join will quickly just get integrated. This really does make me sick. It will make everything into a competition for a girls attention for these young boys. This is the end of the BSA.

[–]k-ma 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I doubt it. In rural areas, people tend to be more conservative/traditional, so I don’t think that families will want to send their girls to the Scouts BSA anyway.

[–]Starchman 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Your making my point for me. The ONE girl that does want to join will not constitute an entire seperate unit... Like I said, they will get integrated.

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (1 child)

but there are separate units for boys and girls.

While true, I earnestly do not believe this will last beyond the initial "testing the waters" phase.

[–][deleted] -2 points-1 points  (2 children)

So it’s going to be essentially the same thing as having Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts, then? Just a name change?

[–]k-ma 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Nope. The girls’ units of the Scouts BSA do the same activities as the boys, including knot-tying and wilderness skills that they would not be able to do in the Girl Scouts.

[–]throwawaycuzmeh 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Because modern feminism is a direct offshoot of critical theory (aka marxism), and its goal is to weaken and destroy Western Civilization.

As an eagle scout and recipient of their highest award for heroism (saving a drowning 3yo boy in an icy lake) this truly saddens me.

ETA And since anyone can say anything on the net.


[–]eccentricrealist 84 points85 points  (5 children)

You're a fucking hero. My half brother is 3 and I swear, the thought of a child that young and innocent just up and drowning is deeply upsetting to me.

Sad thing is that he died 5 years ago at 33 from a rare disease. Left behind 5 and 3yo daughters. I was devastated.

[–]teutonictoast 19 points20 points  (1 child)

I remember reading Boy's Life magazine, and I remember they had a section each session dedicated to telling stories about the heroic people who got that award. May have even read yours sometime. I received a lesser award for heroism for helping out my mom when she almost bled out after getting an artery cut by broken glass.

[–]Borsao66 15 points16 points  (0 children)

They used to do the comic on the last page of every issue, illustrating various heroism stories. I was told that I'd be on one but I don't think that it ever happened.

I did get a paragraph in one. I have it around here somewhere.

[–]sup1337hax 13 points14 points  (2 children)

Some of the best moments of my life were fucking around with my friends in scouts on camp outs. Let's just hope they don't fuck up OA or MOS.

If they're letting girls in there's no way they get away with gender segregating OA. Shit's fucked yo.

Badass bro. Eagle here. I read those stories in boy's life and always wondered what it would be like to save a life. Cheers.

[–]rossiFan 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Did you know that Eagles are automatically admitted to Texas A&M? It's also highly regarded when applying for an appointment to a military academy.

What now? Eagle Scout is a huge fucking deal.

[–]Borsao66 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I'm in my 50s now and I have a couple of degrees already. I also taught at the AF Academy for 10 years. It's been a good run.

Another Eagle Scout here. (1995) My dad and all of my uncles are Eagles too.

This news has really bummed me out. I had a great experience in scouting and would not be the man I am today without it.

Boys spending time with successful men is important. The experience is not at all the same with females around. This change is the end of scouting as far as I can tell.

[–]Cousieknow 26 points27 points  (0 children)

Fellow Eagle here (2012) you're absolutely right. I learned so much about self maintenance and sustainability though scouts; alongside how to really follow through with a long term project.

The lack of régimen I saw and am now seeing going on with things like lax uniform rules deeply sadden me.

Next thing you know Eagle required MB's and project requirements will be cut. I'm not ecstatic for the future of scouting.

[–]2comment 15 points16 points  (1 child)

I predict within less than a decade there will start an outflow of scoutleaders willing to do the volunteering because of accusations. Just like how male teachers are fewer and fewer in the elementary and middle school levels.

Best thing would be to just start a splinter organization now.

[–]noblelefty2 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Unfortunately you can’t make a splinter org once the jaws of progressivism has taken hold. They’ll attack you and call you all the hateful words that you are and won’t stop until you kill yourself. I considered inviting neighborhood kids to take part with my sons in creative scoutlike events. Of course that would take fund raising and etc. I’d imagine it would work right up until word gets out it’s a boys only event. Then I’d get sued.

[–]lurkingtacopiller 1 points1 points [recovered]

Also an eagle. Pretty upset about this, doubt I'll put my future sons into the program now. They won't learn anything from a disjointed fragment of what BSA once was.

[–]Chill_Bill_Cipher 7 points8 points  (1 child)

Another eagle here. I probably won't either since it has been stripping itself of what made it good. Now it's becoming a daycare center for middle and high schoolers.

[–]DARE1983 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I agree, I am an Eagle scout, my nephew is currently a scout (likely not for long) and the quality of the scouts has greatly diminished since my time. It is common and even accepted for them to be on their phones during outings, and some have serious behavioral issues that the leadership is not equipped to deal with.

[–]SteelSharpensSteel 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Same. Eagle Scout here as well, also from a family of Eagle Scouts.

It's really unfortunate. I consider getting my Eagle one of my great accomplishments in life, and now it's been devalued. And then you have to think about what to do with your sons - where will they go now to get that same type of experience that we all had.

[–]yamehameha 105 points106 points  (9 children)

Enjoy it while it lasts. Fraternities are next. The will go after frats using equal housing laws by saying that refusing to rent to women is discrimination. Frats will either have to go coed or give up their physical houses, either of which will destroy them. Fraternity life has already been ridiculously watered down in the last 10 years.

Fraternities need to dissacociate from both the universities and their national overlords. Neither provide any value.

Eagle Scout here (2003). I won’t be donating any more money. They have ruined a fantastic organization. 0% chance my future sons will enroll. I will gladly teach them those skills myself.

This is sickening, we need the Heliogender Scouts, too.

[–]1Ramesses_ 30 points31 points  (15 children)

I know it's an easy target due to today's environment but they aren't actually doing it for ideological reasons. The Boy Scouts are in massive decline and this is an attempt to boost enrollment numbers by any means necessary. They're desperate.

[–]KekistanRefugee 11 points12 points  (0 children)

So they need more shekels and the only solution is to let girls in. This still seems like it’s in the same ballpark.

[–][deleted] 16 points17 points  (7 children)

Organizations with a long history of proud tradition can't drum up business by compromising their core integrity.

Besides feminism could still be to blame for low enrollment.

[–]UrbanEngineer 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Single mothers sure as hell aren't enrolling their children in the boy scouts. Lots of fathers aren't men anymore, lady boys. Society is getting soft, and removing the scouts teachings and structure is a grave mistake.

[–]BreakerMark78 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Eagle Scout here, my dad was our troop master and is still involved with the adult leadership training.

The BSA is a dying organization, this is an attempt to stave off the wolves for a few more years. Membership is down in part because kids either don't want to leave their screens, or parents don't want to to spend the effort taking them to meetings/trips/camp. They especially don't want to go through that for multiple kids. So parents have complained about needing to choose between taking their boys and their girls to 2 separate organizations, planning 2 sets of meetings/trips/camps and usually decide to just not bother with either.

TRP as an idea has been around since the 1930s -- psychotherapist Al Ellis used to do PUA in the Bronx back then. Ellis wrote "The art of erotic seduction" back in the 1960s. That book is in PDF form if you rabbit hole enough. Interesting to read and see it's all the same shit from 80 years ago, lol.

The big movement really kicked off with Eric Weber in 1970 when he released "How to pick up girls". Read that, same shit as today.

The first "TRP" type community I found was on Compuserve in 1987 -- they finally shut down last year. It wasn't called TRP back then, of course, but there was a "seductive dating" forum on there as well as a "teach your sons" type deal. I was 13 at the time, probably the only person in 30 miles who had a modem to connect, and my neighbor worked for a government agency so he had extra Compuserve minutes every month he would let me use (he didn't have a modem at home).

I remember connecting the last 2-3 days of the month at 300 bps (your current broadband connections are like 25,000,000 bps speed lol) and just devouring everything I could on women because I was an early bloomer and my dad was a "playboy" player.

After compuserve faded, uunet was thriving in the 90s and then the web poked both of those out.

Do you happen to know how to find Al Ellis's book online? I'm not coming up with much when I look it up.

[–]abdada 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I'm sure I have a PDF but fml if I can remember which google drive account it's under. I have a hectic week (just got home from a fuckton of months in the Caribbean) and I only have 1GB of mobile data so it'll have to wait until I catch up and can sit down at my cafe and browse the accounts.

I know it's out there, I know I had it, I don't know if I still have it.

It's also been in effect for quite awhile. There have been female dens in cub scouts since Jan, and the plan to roll out female patrols in BSA troops was announced at the same time. The time to complain has long passed, and it would take extreme effort to make them back frack against the pc minions at this point.

it's such an unbelievably bad idea.

i was in the scouts back in the day and based on some.of the shit that went down i'm actually surprised the BSA hasn't already been sued into oblivion. our camping trips were a bunch of almost completely unsupervised 12 year old boys running amok in the woods with fire and rope and edged weapons. and full contact capture the flag. one year at summer camp it was pouring down rain one day and for some reason the whole troop got into a huge brawl in the mud. it was some lord of the flies shit. i can't even imagine mixing girls into that kind of environment.

[–]FlamingAmmosexual 28 points29 points  (0 children)

That's the toxic masculinity that they want to end. Add some girls into the mix and soon it'll all be "too violent" so that'll give them an excuse to make the boys do more female activities.

[–][deleted] 23 points24 points  (14 children)

I wasnt in scouts very long because I joined to late but my very first camping trip we went mountain biking in the middle of winter.

This is just another item in the long list of things to emasculate young boys.

Do you honestly believe they're doing this to help young women? No. I'll tell you what happens. They're going to let women in and instead of them doing things the boy scouts do they're going to start demanding the boys do what girls scouts did. I wouldn't be surprised if they eventually offer a patch for a boy to get in touch with his feminine side by doing something like crafts.

Knives? Shooting? Camping in the wilderness? That'll be "too dangerous" for little Susie so they'll compromise by going to a Disney movie.

Another step towards the feminization of society. Starting them young now.

Alphas are a dying breed. Luckily we still have places like TRP to help those who want to help themselves.

In the feminist mind anything all male is misogynistic and discriminating towards females. Hamstering at its finest.

Normally we would have masculine men to set these women straight. But since men have started becoming women themselves, there isn’t any offset.

Lol I was sash and dash, but the OA ceremony they did around a huge bonfire where they had dudes sprinting FULL SPEED around the circle literally grabbing kids into the night was always epic.

And yeah this was inevitable, it's kinda sad to feel a part of the downfall, and witness it first hand, when I was a kid I had so many great male role models to look up to and when I left, I hoped I was one myself, but I saw that less and less importance was placed on the real issues and more on resume builders

[–]dont_member_password 15 points16 points  (7 children)

You fucking simps.

I’m an eagle scout coming from a family with 4 kids, 2 girls, 2 boys, and we were all in girl/boy scouts where we all attained the final award (Gold Award and Eagle Scout respectively). Both of my parents were involved in the leadership of my scout troop.

Let’s ignore the fact that scouting, both boy and girl, have had declining levels of participation for who knows how long. Let’s ignore the fact that both organizations are basically not for profit businesses trying to keep involvement levels up. Let’s ignore that from my experience witnessing both organizations that BSA has a largely superior structure and experience progressing through the ranks and attaining the necessary skills (merit badges).

Let’s also ignore the fact it seems like everyone commenting here has not been paying attention to the releases about how they plan to change the structure of the organization to accommodate girls. Troops get to decide if they go co-ed and if a troop goes co-ed, then girls are in their own patrols with their own patrol leaders. While yes, this doesn’t negate the distraction caused by having girls and boys in the same troop, it’s still nowhere near as bad as the pure idealists sitting on their couches philosophizing would have you believe.

Women have been involved in Boy Scouts for a long time, probably longer than anyone here would even know about, supporting the organization as it was. I may be tainted by my personal experience having gotten my eagle in 2005, back before the start of the leftward swing in the late 2000’s, but still it’s stupid to think that all of the girls wanting to join the new “Scouts BSA” are going to be hardcore feminists through and through, who’ve bought it hook line and sinker and want to destroy all of the traditionalism that as survived in the organization from it’s inception. BSA still has close ties with religion and the religious community, especially since most troops are based out of/sponsored by churches.

Are they going to change the Scout Law? A Scout is trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean, and REVERENT.

Are they going to change the Scout Oath? On my honor I will do my best to do my duty, to GOD and my country, and to obey the Scout Law, to help other people at all times, to keep myself physically strong, mentally awake, and morally straight.

The overall point being, traditional organizations typically attract traditional people/participation. Let’s not act like this is the end of the scout experience for boys.

And one step further, let’s not act like BSA has been doing a great job of raising Red Pill aware people. If anything, because of their close ties with religious organizations, I’d be inclined to think they had much to do with the blue pill indoctrination of young people. Sure their list of merit badges and various experiences are great for helping people get introductory exposure to a lot of different subjects, but having been in the organization and seeing the people in it, they sure as hell weren’t Alphas. And a lot of the dads weren’t Alphas. A lot of the leadership at the council and national levels were a bunch of old overweight men who could barely stand let alone give young boys a good/healthy understanding of intergender dynamics.

In the end, either you’re a free thinker or not. Either your emotions rule you or not. A lot of these comments are no better than the daily, useless, emotional drivel people post on social media websites. Think critically or get fucked.

[–]pastarotolo 5 points6 points  (3 children)

Thank you! I’m guessing 98% of commenters didn’t read the article which states:

Scouts BSA, the program for 11-to-17-year-olds, will stay divided along gender lines. Single-sex troops will have the chance to work toward the Eagle Scout rank.

OP was intentionally reactionary and deceptive.

It’s an incremental assault. That’s how the left works. How many times are you going to fall their bullshit?

They don’t destroy institutions or enact their social engineering all at once. They make very small changes, then accuse everyone of overreacting. Then when people get used to the status quo, they push it a little further. They do this over and over until they have achieved their goal. There are so many examples of this in action that I’m not even going to list any. It’s their modus operandi and it has been for decades.

[–][deleted] -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Make no mistake, it's a big defeat. If nothing else, it's an attack on a symbol of the American Man. They hate us and will attack and demoralize anything and anyone that stands for manhood and male values.

BSA is not just a bunch of words on paper, it is a people and a culture. Change the people and the culture will be changed. Adding just a few women immediately shuts down the most "male" aspects of culture.

If the women just wanted the program, they could have made a new "girls BSA", or done something with GSA rather than throwing them under the bus. It's typical "progressive" – attacking the male institution even at the expense of the female one.

Watering down the program to stop declining member numbers is putting out the fire with gasoline.

In the end, either you’re a free thinker or not. Either your emotions rule you or not ... Think critically or get fucked.

They took a big scalp. Saying it ain't so isn't "free thinking", it's lying to yourself.

[–]Incel9876 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

BSA still has close ties with religion and the religious community, especially since most troops are based out of/sponsored by churches.

You aware of how various churches are taken over by Leftists, then immediately women and sodomites can be priests/bishops/etc, and all the doctrines and moral requirements are suddenly optional or completely void and eventually dropped completely?

Are they going to change the Scout Law? A Scout is trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean, and REVERENT.

Are they going to change the Scout Oath? On my honor I will do my best to do my duty, to GOD and my country, and to obey the Scout Law, to help other people at all times, to keep myself physically strong, mentally awake, and morally straight.

Dead, dead, dead. Empty words that have been drained of all meaning by actions, maybe someday they'll get around to changing it, maybe not. "God" part, they let in atheists. "Morally straight," they let in sodomites. What matters if the words remain? They're an institution of the Enemy now.

[–]1Zanford 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Amen. I hadn't really thoughts about the Boy Scouts in years, but they absolutely were an important building block for a lot of boys to develop into men.

Which is, of course, the real reason the enemies want to destroy them, or water them down into meaninglessness. Concur with your prognostications:

Standards for badges, ranks (including an especially Eagle Scout) will fall to meaninglessness. Scoutmasters will become replaced by beta white knights and shrikes.

Girls and beta boys will doing Eagle Scout projects that are bullshit like 'a campaign to make 1000 social justice posts on Twitter' or 'losing a little weight I should have never put on in the first place' instead of the old shit like building a fucking working boat from scratch.

There will be lots more tone policing and rules. So many rules. Rambunctiousness will become medicalize and criminalized at scout events like it has been in public schools.

Eagle Scout will become meaningless on resumes, removing the original argument for letting girls in. Which was stupid to begin with b/c Girl Scouts already had its own equivalent (Gold Rank or whatever it was called).

When I was in the army, we were held to a certain standard and women were held to a lower one. They carried lesser weight in marches, did lesser press ups, pull ups and crunches and had a wider frame of time to complete runs. If the military can't understand that bullets are blind and the enemy will be an equal opportunity killer, how can we expect the boy scouts to hold girls to the same standards?

[–]SlySoothSayer 8 points9 points  (0 children)

I actually just passed my eagle board of review last week becoming one of the top 2% of all scouts.

After being in the scouts since elementary school as a cub, rising through the ranks with my brothers by my side, learning new skills, testing myself physically and pushing myself to my mental and physical extremes. Learning how to build a fire, cut wood, behave like a man.

From sleeping in a hammock at sea base to climbing mount Phillips at Philmont. I’ve done all of it.

The best memories I have of scouting are when my brothers and I pushed ourselves as hard as we could.

Note the word “brother” , the bsa was founded on masculinity as well as masculine values. I have noticed a very rapid decline in the quality of new scouts that we are inducting into our troop, they are getting smaller, weaker and less focused.

Although they are getting worse these are the kids that need scouting the most. These are the boys misled by society,fed poor nutrition and lacking a masculine figure.

I will never turn my back on someone willing to learn and if these boys want to learn, I will teach them. Because I know that at one point in time I was that kid.

Now add girls to the equation, it’s not going to be good at all. It’s a fact that girls are not at strong as boys. A lot of what the scouts do requires strength, so in turn we are going to have to lower the standards for girls to participate.

Lowering the standards means more Eagle Scouts.

More Eagle Scouts means a devaluation of the rank of Eagle Scout.

I’m glad I got out of scouts just in time.

An informal institution which I hope is still alive and well is the hunt camp.

Although I did try to get my wife and daughters to come along, regaling them with tales of hanging your arse over a log and wiping your behind with leaves was enough to dissuade them from participating.

My son on the other hand loved it. Although he was too young at the time to shoot a rifle, he quickly learned how to scout for deer and in the week he spent with us became quite the accomplished woodsman. The fact that he was among men was the singular experience of his age and even now many years later he still speaks fondly of that time.

The BSA has tried to merge with the GSA since the 80's(maybe even 70's) as a place where all children can learn skills and not be little shitbags. The GSA is all about money and the BSA does stuff like charity work. The GSA didn't want to merge cause they are all about using kids to make money. The GSA has allowed girls for some time now and it hasn't been a male space for decades.

[–]oldrunnerguy 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It is amazing how this has gone. I think from the same perspective in that young men and boys need their fathers, I believe the "scouts" need the "Boy" Scouts. It is part of having positive male role models in these boys lives. It is even more vitally important when a lot of these boys don't grow up with a good father figure in the house.

On another point, a number of years ago there was an young adult male leadership training organization with actually an equivalent female only version of the organization. The Supreme Court ruled that they had to allow women in. In doing so the two organizations merged to form one group. I really felt that it became the downfall of that organization. I don't know why there was a problem keeping the organizations separate. If a woman wants to be a part of the men's organization, fine, but allow it be a male space. In the same manner, if a girl wants to be in boy scout, fine, but allow it be a male space.

We're not blank slates, that becomes very apparent when we all get out in the dating pool.

[–]danhaas 1 point2 points  (0 children)

My suggestion is to move the boys to martial arts. There are plenty of dojos with traditional japanese and chinese values and some organize summer camps. MMA is less traditional, but many teachers still follow japanese values.

Many dojos are pretty independent from one another (except for competitions), so if you are not happy at one place, you can go to another. This independence also prevents top-down inclusiveness BS.

Im confused. They let girls into boy scouts now so it is no longer even the boy scouts, just scouts of amereica? But the girl scouts still get to keep "girl" in their name but do they accept boys? This is pretty blatant of how society is degrading men into a bunch of pussys and incles. A real shame, yet another reason to stay improving and lifting to be a role model. How can we adults reach the youth these days to spread the truth? is it even worth it?

[–]JTTTS 1 point2 points  (0 children)

As an Eagle Scout (with all Palms) and a Brotherhood Member of the OA, I cannot agree with this enough.

Most of my closest friends in adult life, are also Eagles. We did not meet through Scouting. We met through college, fraternity, work, and the military; but Scouting instilled something in us that drew us together. In each of them I recognized a leader, and someone I could call a brother. When I found out they are also Eagle Scouts it instantly created a fraternal bond that helped cement our friendship.

I mourne for the loss of my brotherhood, and hope our members speak out in enough numbers to revert the progressive cancer.

In the meantime I suppose I'll have to start laying out plans for a new young mens leadership group, so my sons will have something to join one day.

As soon as the first boys will not try to get into the BSA the whole institution will fall. BSA lived simply by men feeling the need for helping the next generations of men, tutoring them so to speak. Imagine when all those volunteers just drop out.

Eagle scout here. I also recommend Trail Life USA. The same community of people that were in my Boy Scout Troop are now in Trail Life. I expect that they will be growing rapidly due to this. As far as I know they are the most drop-in replacement like organization to the former BSA.

I think this is great. When I was in Boy Scouts it was the gayest experience of my life. Safe to say it brainwashed me to be bp. Following fucking losers into submission, do what we say. Stop doing what we don’t want. Half the kids were booger picking bible thumping losers, along with the parents. Some kids were assholes and I liked that shit. Knew who the role models were that got shit done then talked shit about people. The rest were Pokémon players. But we were kids not that it mattered. Now these kids are going to be fucking each other left and right like the good old bible camps. Boy Scouts was gay as fuck.

[–]Rhenthalin 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I feel like I'm missing into the wind at this point. The Venture crew has been available since 1998. It's coed and In the Boy Scouts why wasn't everyone just directed to the homepage when the issue came up?. It's almost exclusively focused on doing fun shit innawoods or onnaocean.

[–]Naughtypandaxi 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It's a sad day, but it has been in the making for a while. They let wemon be counselors a long time ago, then let let girls join, and now this. They will circle the drain for a little while longer before they close up shop.

I was a Boy Scout in both the USA and Mexico. In Mexico the same organization allowed boys and girls, but in a "Separate but equal" sort of set up with completely separate patrols, group leaders, and activities, we never intermingled. All my memories of them was that they were usually doing dainty stuff while all the boys were doing very rough & tumble type of things. If we had been in the same patrols there would have been such a high level of injuries on the girls or our activities would have had to been taken down to their level dainty level. Then when I joined the Boy Scouts in the USA things were never as rough as in the Mexican Boy Scouts but we definitely did things that were far more technical and dangerous due to the equipment used. I can't imagine how handling axes, saws, hatchets, knives, hammers, fire, and more knives is going to play out with all these girls in the mix. And forget about the obstacle courses and things like that.

Heck, Summer Camp in the blistering Texas heat to a little kid was like a frikin' POW camp, you had the homesick kids that would just completely lose it and have a total mental breakdown, bugs, humidity, and of course fights galore.

This really hits hard as I recently came across an old BSA catalog I had while cleaning my house, which brought back a lot of memories, good times...

This is going to be such a mess......so long BSA.

In between the second and third punic Wars, the Roman Senator Cato the Elder recognized that Carthage, though weakened and humbled, would always be a threat to Rome as it could always rebuild its wealth and prestige through its skill as a seafaring trading city. He therefore ended every speech, no matter the topic, by stating “Carthago dalenda est.” Carthage must be destroyed.

In like manner, I now believe that nothing will ever be fixed until women’s franchise is eliminated. I will end every post by stating, “female suffrage must be destroyed.”

[–]Yhunoh 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yes, girls will ruin the boy scouts, totally. You don't even know them but obviously none of them would want to partake in these kind of activities. And uniforms will only be fashion statements to ALL of them. Funny how I saw former girl scouts complaining about not doing any of these activities and how they would have stayed if they had done the same things the boy scouts did. But yeah, sure, keep on blaming them. Also, what about your future daughters? What if they wanted to join this group. Screw them, cause they are female right? Fuck I hate guys like you who blame everything on girls and women. I hope you never marry or get a daughter cause my full condolescenes go to her for having such a terrible father.

[–]BigYellowLemon 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It's very simple, just look at who owns it:



Randall L. Stephenson is the current chairman, CEO, and president of AT&T/SBC, appointed by Bush for some important advisory committee for telecommunications, and is a member of the council of foreign relations (now the BSA's progressive infection makes sense).

These people want to see maaculinity die, either because they think they're saving the world, or because they want to destroy and own the world.

The Boy Scouts is going to simply turn into high school. There will be no sense of unity/comradery, the "hive mind" of the troop that people in the military very often experience. Instead, it will be the guys competing for the girls, and the girls internally destroying all relations via the group behavior most women exhibit. The point of scouts is for unigender groups of people developing themselves and learning how to become part of a greater whole. When the genders are mixed, the group falls apart.

[–]----______-_ 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Recent Eagle here (2017). As someone that recently just graduated and joined the recent brotherhood of Eagles I sort of feel as if I have been saved from the onus that bringing girls into the organization would do. I mean man, messing around and exploring at summer camp, screwing around with my patrol on cabin ski trips, our troop's battle camp (capture the flag with nerf guns, super soakers, etc. out in the wild), and my experiences backpacking at Philmont are some of my best memories that I will carry on into my life ahead even if they seem mellow to what other Eagles have done. I think that the influx of girls may just mellow down the standards even more just because "girls can't do them", and it's just sad. When I became an Eagle, before even the announcement that girls were joining the organization I had sworn that if I do grow up and have a son that he would become an Eagle like me. I don't know if that is the case anymore.

[–]exploratoah 0 points1 point  (0 children)

If you were ever a scout you would have seen this coming. Organization is so bureaucratic it deserved to crash and burn.

[–]EscapeTheGoat 0 points1 point  (1 child)

What I think is truly hilarious about this is actually that the Girl Scouts don't want this to happen. They think the fucking boy scouts should stay just for boys. It's literally the dumbass beta men who run boy scouts and their SJW puppet masters that want this to happen.

[–]LittleSpoonMe 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Girl Scouts the organization doesn’t want this to happen so they can retain more members. Their stance is common sense from a financial perspective, not sure why it’s so hilarious o.O. It’s more than expected.

[–]menial_optimist 0 points1 point  (0 children)

One possible solution here is to start up a clone organization based off the BSA of old, and make sure the people in charge of the organization are hardcore supporters of the traditional style of the BSA. That way any serious father will send their sons to that instead and the BSA will just fade off the radar. Nothing is stopping this from happening and it should. The experiences of the traditional BSA can be saved by doing so but sadly the BSA itself is finished.

[–]rockmasterflex 0 points1 point  (3 children)

I think the solution is pretty simple, and scouts was tainted pretty hard anyway what with all the molestation issues and church involvement.

In your community, host your own organizations for teaching now-relevant male-dominated skills to the youth. You don't even really have to worry about it being a boys only organization until the group hits puberty, but what are the chances of a girl enrolled in your super manly program actually sticking it out once that happens and not just bailing to pursue stuff she actually wants to do?

If anything scouts is super fucking outdated. Modernizing and replacing it with something better is probably a better option now, and look how easy theyve made it for you. They did this because they are a FAILING organization right now. Individual troops run by great folks might be thriving, but the organization as a whole has a bad rap (molestation shit) and u know, nobody cares about camping and survivalness in 2018 when you can call ems in 2 seconds and literally always have a computer in your pocket.

the male space has to evolve to keep pace.

[–]oloug 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Lack of modernization is part of the appeal of BSA. You don't need modernization when camping. The "modernized" books that I saw while in scouts were worse than the old ones. The old handbooks had lots of useful information about everything to do with hiking and camping. The newer ones were fairly useless in that regard.

[–]1Jaereth 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The "modernized" books that I saw while in scouts were worse than the old ones

I ended up with my dads boy scout handbook from the sixties. Thing is fucking lit. They talk to you like you are in basic, not a youth organization.

[–]rockmasterflex 0 points1 point  (0 children)

But thats just like, your opinion man.

All the information you need on hiking and camping can be looked up in .2 seconds now. Experience trumps data for sure, but you don't NEED scouts for that.

But the data backs me up anyway, there is a reason the scouts are doing poorly. They don't know how to attract parents to enroll their boys anymore, so now they're enrolling their girls.

You could just as easily replace half the typical boyscout curriculum with electronics training, learning how to program, etc, and keep camping and hiking in there as trips, and you'd have a more attractive program for parents.

[–]rockmasterflex 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]manray12 0 points1 point  (0 children)

As an Eagle Board Rep and Scout Leader with 2 sons as Eagles, I have reviewed all of the posts and clearly the Eagles who posted feel devalued. No doubt society in general will understand the same and know that the program will not result in the same character building which the program produced. I would suggest to all whenever referring to your Eagle Accomplishment (resume, or other) make the distinction, "pre - Scouts BSA".

I'm gonna chime in here, as a former cub and scout.

It's funny to see all this drama about girls joining the scout movement. The scout troop I was in, and many others had girls in them. Not many, often they were the daughters of the leaders / helpers. But there were girls.

Nothing changed, the only thing that was adapted was that on camp the girls would sometimes share one tent. The girls that joined were all tom boys, and none of the activities were curtailed or changed because of 'girls'

[–]The_Chiselnator 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Time for a new Boys Organisation. The Scouts are dead but they can be replaced. I am pretty sure lots of actual parents of boys want their sons to grow into men not baking pansies. An exclusive group for boys will emerge and Charlie Mike all the way.

Sons of Men. Sons & Brothers

Whatever. Nature abhors a vacuum and it will be filled

[–]prinzklaus 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Ya know. I was fine with them accepting gay scouts into the BSA. My line of thought was young men would all benefit from being a part of the organization.

But women? Nah. They have girl scouts. They also had the option of venture scouts also.

I think it's important for men to have organizations to belong to (just like I think women benefit from all women organizations). The last bastion of all-Male organizations are fraternities and religious affiliated organizations like the Masons and Shriners.

This is truly sad. As an eagle scout, I don't know if my sons will get to do scouting or not (assuming I have kids).

Den mothers are not a bad idea, it's symbolic to have that transition into male leadership as one goes from being a "cub" to being a "boy." There was a lot of common sense and thought put into the BSA structure.

Eagle Scout here. This makes me want to cry but I don't do that. Seriously I think back to my experience in the 90's and how our troops and patrols worked - it will be FUCKING IMPOSSIBLE to include girls and keep the same tight ship running. Female patrol leaders?! Forgetaboutit. Knives, guns, fires, 10 mile hikes through the mountains - fucking forgetaboutit. I feel sorry for the Scout masters since they will be the ones being Daddy to the girls. They will have to carry their packs because they packed too much shit than they can carry. This shit just makes me wanna vomit that is all.

Ya know, I was in scouting all through my formative years.

You learn a lot of those hard lessons there. In public schools, they are inclusive. Nobody can be treated differently.

In scouts, if you fucked up, you definitely felt it. If you packed your stuff wrong, tough shit. Your hike is going to be miserable. Enjoy.

But stuff like that, it helps you learn how to get squared away. I grew up on the borderline in time where society was first starting to experiment with these cucked ideas and practices. Growing up, ya know, I would hear about some of the "anything goes" societal changes happening. Probably not really understanding it, but we would hear about it.

But man, getting a week in the woods every now and then - only the guys, and only a subset of guys who willingly signed up and enjoyed the environment of scouts, that put it all into perspective. Not just that, but it's those boys, and then the men who volunteered to lead scouts. You just couldn't beat it.

Everyone I know who was out there developed better character because of it I think. Kids growing up in modern city need to get out there with some male role models and just do guy stuff.

Say whatever you want, but I mean at 12, 13, 14? Kids look young, but the guys are already thinking about pussy. I guarantee it. Adding girls to the troops will be a huge distraction. Fuck the whole system up if you ask me.

[–]r4nd01 1 points1 points [recovered]

while i do not agree with this move, one true positive thing that can be said about the entry of women into this organization is it will cease to be a haven for pedophiles.

say what you want about how shitty women can be, but an overwhelming amount of statistical evidence shows they just do not molest, and only the most severely warped of catholic nuns and battered wives knowingly allow a man to molest children.

dude, you're out of your mind. think about the difference in sex drives between men and women. this notion that men and women are equal in their desire for sex is fkn insane.

Nearly all offenders in child sexual assaults reported to law enforcement were male (96%).

  • Sexual Assault of Young Children as Reported to Law Enforcement, 7/00, NCJ 182990, U.S. Department of Justice

before you say what that other guy said, that rapes perpetrated by females are underreported for whatever reason, rapes by men are also underreported out of fear, shame, loyalty, etc.

get ur head out of your ass

I don't usually post, but this is too close to my heart. I worked for a long time to get my Eagle rank, now I am almost embarrassed of it. BSA gave me a lot, but it's impossible to justify what they're doing.

I want to say something that most people are ignoring: nobody in the organization was asked how they felt about these decisions. There were no questions to local councils, troops, individual members, nothing. We had no say. It's a group of cucked executives that have been tricked into believing the feminist bullshit.

RIP Boy Scouts, you gave me a lot, I wish you deserved something back.

[–]1atticusfinch1973 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Just another example of society's double standard when it comes to men and women.

Women are allowed women only gyms. They are allowed days on golf courses where no men are allowed. They are actually encouraged to hold their own networking events and award ceremonies. Yet if men do the same thing its oppression and a reason for a woman to want to join that thing just to make a statement.

I'm actually happy I have girls and I can help turn them into red pill women rather than boys that are going to be subjected to this garbage at every turn.

[–]redpilledcuck -1 points0 points  (0 children)

I was in Scouts Canada for a year as a kid and we had girls (and called them "Girl Scouts") and a female scoutmaster. I didn't really like it since I wasn't a cultural fit for them and the female scoutmaster seemed to take joy in demeaning me. I never went back.

According to them its good for girls to have separate spaces. Its not good for boys because it breeds toxic masculinity and rape culture---that separate space shouldn't be allowed.
