This is what ive been telling people. Boys and girls camping from ages 12 to 18 ish. Together. Cant leave well enough alone. Hormones flying.
@ApparitionSpy, I mean... plenty of coed camps exist. Every camp I went to as a kid was both boys and girls.
@UmActually, its just the whole thing about the girls in BOY Scouts. But was raised in scouts so I guess im taking a bit bigger offense to it than most people. Just defensive
@ApparitionSpy, just saying though man as someone who was part of scouting (in the uk) for eleven years (6-17) in all of that time girls were allowed to join and with little to no problems whatsoever.
@LeafOnTheW1nd, I'm sure it can work. Its Just what led to it is what upset me I guess.
@ApparitionSpy, I’m an eagle and was in scouting for 15 years, and I think it’s great that girls are getting into scouting. There were several sisters of guys in my troop who came on most of the campouts and were more involved than some of the guys. I hope more people like them can get Eagle because it’s an awesome experience that I don’t think should be limited to anyone.
@MedalDeliveryMan, im an eagle too man. (Congrats) I think it was just the way it was portrayed to me at first is what got to me . im all for the opportunity honestly. It just came across wrong in the article I read. Some of my best memories were from scouting.
@ApparitionSpy, same here man, scouting made me who I am more than most anything, and I just want as many people as possible to have those great memories as well. There was quite a negative knee-jerk reaction to this move but I’m glad people seem to be lightening up a bit
@MedalDeliveryMan, yeah I hope it just works out honestly. It'll be a good thing in the long run.
@LeafOnTheW1nd, the point is that we have boy scouts, and girl scouts. They should just combine them both and just have scouts and not have girls in boy scouts. Just call them scouts...
@ApparitionSpy, I was never in the scouts and this just seems stupid and unnecessary to me.
@meNoP, you can't really combine them though because one is a heavily religiously motivated organization (albeit lightening up now) and the other is not religiously affiliated. Among other differences. The two, while sharing a similar name and goal, are completely separate organizations
@meNoP, but I agree with your point.
Alright scouts let's check our supplies! Tent. Check. Sleeping bag. Check. Box of condoms. Check
@jizzgenerator, pretty sure the scout leaders had already been packing those for years.
@Berntley, worse than the Catholic Church, but nothing compared to the public schooling system.
@Doctor Krieger, at least the public school teachers put a little more effort into it.
Stop pretending like boy scouts would be able to talk to girls
@Baynality, I can talk to girls! My mom, my grandma, my aunt...
@Good Meme, the nice lady on the call-out line for work...
"So how was your day?"
"Please leave a message after the beep with your name, shift, supervisor, reason for calling out, and date you expect to return."
I'd like to point out that schools, summer programs, etc have coed camps all the time. Lots of male friends/family joined my Girl Scout trips. They just have gendered cabins/tents they'll be fine. Idk why this is a huge deal - other places just have "Scouts" and GSA is boring af. Go them
If boys don't get let into girlscouts I'm gonna sue
This one time at band camp...
I've seen this post about 10 times now and only now do I get it, my trashness sometimes surprisses even me.
why do they need girls in Boy Scouts. I thought that was the point of the Venture Scouts?
Not the tent they were told to pitch
Everything else aside, I feel like they should change the name
I dont understand the point when the girl scouts exist, or is it that the boy scouts are just desperate for members
Just change the name to the Adventure Scouts of America or something and then who gives a crap
I knew a guy who worked one summer for a get-away like camp out of a hotel that was rented out. Told me them 15yr olds literally tried fvcking every opportunity they got. Night duty was the worst since he'd have to break up 5-10 mid fvck sessions that night alone. Said he even had to break up an 8 something person orgy at one point. Told me he wouldn't ever work for such a camp again, ever.
It's not even funny...
@Mhael, I mean it kinda is
@Mhael, it really is.
@Mhael, it definitely is
@Mhael, it most certainly is
@Mhael, you're not even funny
@WelI Obviously, well obviously it is
Pretty sure the green shirts denote venture scouts, which was open to boys and girls, even the order of the arrow was open to girls as well. I think it was a program for the scouts that turned 18 and wanted to continue.
