I think you are missing the point. Who wants to be a boy instead of a girl? It is great to have our differences and to enjoy a space that is exclusive. Or perhaps we should castrate all the boys and circumcise all the girls, to increase our sameness and destroy as much as possible any inclination towards sex?

you are so insane.

this isnt the Great Depression anymore, get over it. the world has evolved, not everyone is stuck in the "back in my day" bullshit syndrome.

a girl learning to be an eagle scout is not going to bring about chinese armageddon. get a fucking grip

One problem I think is that there is no real higher level for Girl Scouts. Girl Scouts is the male version of Cub Scouts, except for the Girl Scouts doing more "girly" stuff, while Cubbies went camping and shot arrows and all that. But there isn't a Boy Scout equivalent.

My vague understanding that being an Eagle Scout is actually a big plus, it is a plus for applying to good colleges and possibly an advantage in rank if one joins the armed services. But females do not have the equivalent opportunity.

Is Scouting a big deal anymore? I was a kid of the 1970's and it seems to me that we were the last generation to really like and appreciate being OUTSIDE. Also, our parents wanted us to do just that, how many times did mama say "Git your ass outside and don't come back unless I call yea." No stranger danger and most of us were allow moderately dangerous toys and activities, usually supplied by our parents. My father gave me shitloads of firecrackers, go karts, bicycles, mini bikes, skateboards. The local YMCA had high dives, gymnasium, trampolines. They took us kids horseback riding (which scared the shit out of me).

Now it seems to me that more of the younger generation and children would rather sit inside and play with their phones, games, computers and virtual worlds to enjoy being outside. Because of stranger danger and stricter laws, people are keeping their kids closer to home and with much more supervision. But if we has the technology now like we had in 1978, I would have never left the house either.

Have you ever went to an all-girls summer camp?

What on earth makes you equate the Girl Scouts to Cub Scouts? I really gotta hear this one.

Is anyone opposed to all-male or all-female summer camps? Why or why not?

I hardly think that the Boy Scouts allowing girls to become Eagle Scouts is going to be the end of times.
