I guess my 39 years on this world gives me a slightly different
perspective <g>. Why do you suppose they put men and women prisoners in
I think that anytime we put on our uniforms, we *must* accept our role as
representatives of the ideals of Scouting. Any relationships we form
through scouting must be governed by those same ideals. It's a tough
call when the "buddy" relationship exists for over 25 years, but if it
began in scouting, scouting ideals should take precedence. Any female
scouter who is looking to establish a relationship with a married scouter
is no better example than the married scouter...all parties involved need
to be included in any discussions, and if discipline is appropriate for
one, it should also be appropriate for the other.
I'm currently working on a committee with a couple of people rumored to
be involved. It makes me uncomfortable, because although they have given
*me* no reason to be suspicious, I see the female acting much differently
when he is around. Is it because he has *authority* or because she
*knows* him so well? I have also done committee work with his wife and
find her to be a very attractive, likeable, hard-working Scouter. I
don't care who is to blame, or where or when it might have started. It
seems to me that there are alot of people who are effective scouters, and
have never had these rumors circulated about them. Maybe it has to do
with the way they conduct themselves.
Just my .02.
