I’m a Boy Scout and it pisses me off so much that they’re allowed to join

[–]lolzorken12 points13 points  (2 children) | Copy

Wait they are actually allowed to join? I heard about it but didn't think it was an actual thing

[–]TechDude3011 points12 points  (0 children) | Copy

Oh yeah there's a good number of articles floating about in regards to girls joining the boy scouts. I mean the girls scouts already have their own organization and boys would have their own. I feel it would have been easier to just include the activities that boys do into the girls scouts. Honestly though I really have no idea why girls wanted to join the boy scouts.

Plus if girls are now in the boy scouts then boys have to be welcomed into the girls scouts to make things fair otherwise wouldn't this be the exact opposite of equality and a sign of power abuse through gender?

There’s no longer a Boy Scouts in Canada. Now it’s just “Scouts Canada” and open to girls and boys.

There’s a Girl Guides for girls only though.

[–]HaqksIsBad7 points8 points  (0 children) | Copy

Ok and men should be able to join the WNBA then

To be fair, the Girl Scouts are terrible. I’d appreciate it if they separated kids by gender, but I’m grateful that my girls could have the opportunity to actually learn stuff besides sell cookies. Again, I don’t want the kids in the same groups, but what the boy scouts do is a lot more useful than what the girl scouts teach.

The why can’t Girl Scouts improve and fix their own organization?

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (1 child) | Copy

I wish they would

[–]NohoTwoPointOh0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Seriously, though. Why not hire invested, qualified leadership and reboot/retool their organization?

[–][deleted] 4 points5 points  (0 children) | Copy

I remember when I tried to be a Boy Scouts, and they were terrible so I learned how to do outdoors stuff from Indian dudes on YouTube

[–]boom96boom3 points4 points  (3 children) | Copy

May I ask, what do you have against boys and girls being together?

I've been a member of scouting in New Zealand since I was able to join the youngest age bracket and it has always been mixed, so hearing this idea doesn't make sense to me.

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (2 children) | Copy

I don’t have a problem with mixed groups in general, at all. I just know it’s fun for kids to have a single gender group to be able to participate in. That’s really the only thing.

[–]boom96boom0 points1 point  (1 child) | Copy

So you see it as not fun to have mixed groups?

If that's the case may I ask why you see it that way?

[–]HitorMiss1010 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Boys and girls naturally tend to want to hang out with their own gender. Like the whole girl cooties or boys are icky.

[–]nbowers5783311 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

Can I join the girl scouts? I actually had a very feminist friend in hs that said the organizations should still be separate. She said they should teach similar things but that that being separate allowed for safer spaces for each gender and that it could prevent a lot of issues

[–]ben10201011 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

I’ma get in on that Girl Scouts then, stick with your own team and don’t be upset because you don’t have both.

[–]samgus120 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Girls are in the bsa now because they need money and more people lol

[–]GiveMeTheBroccoli0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

And female prisoners should be sent to Male prisons

[–]boom96boom-4 points-3 points  (2 children) | Copy

Here in New Zealand we don't call it "boy scouts" but just scouts. Boys and girls are all given the same experience without any bias for who they are. This is because we are all seen as scouts, and scouts are just youth looking for an adventure, regardless of their backgrounds.

To me this idea of "boy scouts" in America and not wanting female members to have access is simply an outdated bias. If kids want to join a movement where they can experience, and learn about the outdoors, then why should they be denied for a reason beyond their control??

Whos to say that boys can't fulfill this with the general presence of females. There's nothing stopping them from getting together and finding an area to have their space.

On one scout camp a group of girls were wanting to be left alone so they can gossip about other people they know. So naturally I respect that and leave them to it. Having your own space can still happen with girls around.
