BSA should be a LEADER, not a FOLLOWER, on the issue of co-ed Scouting.
Countries all over the world, including Australia, Canada, and Great
Britain (all of which share a cultural bond with USA), have figured out
how to have boys and girls together in Scouting. Why can't we do it?
IMHO, "We've always/never done it that way" is a totally unacceptable
answer. Tradition alone is insufficient justification for anything.
