Hello All, again,
This is an interesting topic. Could anyone post the committee report
on this matter or at least some of the highlights?
I find the range of attitudes and opinions on this topic quite varied
and interesting. I thought I would add my own.
First of all, to all of you dead set against coed scouting, I must ask
you why are you so against it? I think it would be a good opportunity
for young boys and girls to gain a better understanding of each other as
well as learning how to cooperate and work together in a general scouting
environment we all hold so dear. I dont pretend that such a move would
be without some problems that would need to be corrected, but, maybe such
a move would be yet another step in breaking down the walls between the
sexes, allow boys and girls to work together and appreciate what each can
do. Maybe these boys and girls would grow into men and women who will
be able to relate to the other sex better and understand the needs of each
other and be better able to work together. I think that generally coed
scouting could work out and be quite successful as long as we dont allow
the scouting program to be changed to much in the process.
