Drumroll please.....

 

*everyone reading taps fingers on tables)

 

I'm a boy scout!

 

Everyone: But Catte, you're a girl, that makes no sense!

 

Yeah, I know, but they take girls now and i just joined a troop a few towns over from my own. I originally did girl scouts, but long story short it wasn't what I expected. I don't want to start ranting.

 

But yeah I'm a boy scout. 

 

YAAAY!

Hey! Welcome to ScoutsBSA! 

Apologies in advance I love talking about this

 

@Bracha, actually, the US is one of the few countries that doesn‘t have a co-Ed scouting program. For now, Boy Scouts of America is allowing all female troops, but nothing really co-ed. However, Cub Scouts is co-ed, with packs having both male and female scouts. 

The reason that they don’t merge has to do with a lot of red tape and ideals of both organizations. Girl Scouts has different policies when it comes to LGBTQ and non-Christian scouts (both Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts have roots in the Christian faith but have become much more accepting of different religions and atheists) and Girl Scouts has generally more accepting policies, but BSA is beginning to catch up in that regard. The merit badge programs and ranks have pretty big differences as well. GSA is based on grade while BSA is based on personal advancement. 

The bigwigs in GSA are in a tizzy because they think the BSA are stealing members to keep their program afloat. This is partially true, both organizations have had their numbers take a dip for a long time. GSA is actually suing the Boy Scouts of America because they believe the name change (ScoutsBSA) is confusing and misleading, but that’s a whole other issue.

@everyone

 

Yeah, the whole thing is that girl scouts think that boy scouts isn't capable of helping girls "become our future leaders"

But I have some issues with that statement.

 

WARNING: Rant - Feel free to skip

1.) "Oh, what a girl can do!" is found on the back of cookie boxes, above pictures of girls selling cookies. Oh, girls can sell cookies in front of a convenience store, but boys can go on week-long camping trips in Utah. Great message.

2.) Girl Scouts (at least in my home state) has deteriorated into a place where girls sit and gossip and do nothing but make crafts that fall apart a day after you make them. I joined girl scouts to go camping. As my leader said, "I'm from new york*, I don't do camping or outside stuff." So I was sorely disappointed.

3.) I have a personal bias against GS and for BSA. My brother (cub scout) is in BSA, and even though he is 5 years younger than me, I am jealous of him. He's done more stuff in cub scouts in a month than I had ever done in girl scouts in 4 years. Also, the entire troop hates me now because I got mad at one of them. The leader did nothing. 

4.) GS isn't what it used to be. In the 70s and 80s, my mother was a girl scout. They were essentially boy scouts now, but for girls. Not now.

5.) I take things seriously. Maybe too seriously. But when I was the only one to show up for meetings for 4 months in a row, I was upset. You almost have to show up for every meeting is BSA (unless you are sick or away) or you risk not progressing in the ranks, or not being able to do certain activities. 

 

All in all, I am glad that I quit girl scouts. I hope Boy scouts will be a better place for me.

@people who didn't read the rant

 

I don't like girl scouts for a variety of reasons, mainly because it wasn't what I expected. Read above for in-depth info.

 

@Bracha

Thanks, but I haven't even been to the first meeting yet. Should be in a few weeks.

 

(mods plz let this through. No offense to anyone mentioned.)
