I made the mistake of saying "you" right after your post, Taalcon. And so I gave the impression it was directed at you, instead of being a general statement about the trend I've seen elsewhere:  People advocating for girls fully integrating in the BSA, but vehemently opposing the idea of boys in the Girl Scouts.  That doesn't make sense to me.  Anyway, thanks for your response and your thoughts.  I should probably use the southern "ya'll" when I want the inclusive plural and not the singular.  ;)

Although I liked scouting when I was growing up, and I served for 20 years as an adult leader in various scouting positions, I'm with Dyany. I like the direction the church is going with the new program for older boys.  I hope the church eventually expands the new program to younger boys and drops BSA as the "activity arm" for boys.  From my experience over the past ten years, there seems to be a lot of money, time, and work going into an external program which has increasingly fewer benefits for boys.

Thanks Roper. :)  I get so chuffed when you agree with me! :)  I am very excited about the new program, too.  And I am hoping it is an early step on separating, in which case it's extra smart because they are making sure they have the kinks worked out of the new program (keeping the training wheels on, in a sense) before committing to it completely.
