Thanks, Mike. I had a little boy. I wore a t-shirt after my uniforms got
too small that read "Future Scout" and had an arrow pointing down. I have
green blood. That says it all.
I do, however, think it would be hard for a man to know what a pregnant
woman could feel like doing. I can't say what a teenage boy might need or
feel because I was never a teenage boy. By the same token, I don't think a
man, and thus by definition has never been pregnant, can understand the
needs or feelings of a pregnant woman. Does this make sense?
I might be the exception rather than the rule as far as camping and so
forth, but it annoys me greatly when others try to tell me how I should deal
with a given medical condition. My council tried, and I (politely) informed
them that I could take care of myself, thank you.
KEEP ON SCOUTING!
