I agree, it should not be... but I have yet to read that some little
boy's parents have attempted to sue a GSA Troop over the fact that their
son is not allowed to enroll in their program as all too often is
The initial post that I was responding to was one which suggested that
while all BSA troops should be co-ed, (enabling any young woman who might
chose to to become an Eagle)
while GSA units should remain "girl only" so as to allow for the girls
you mention who do not wish to be with boys..
I was commenting on what I see as somewhat of a double standard in
that the boys should give up/turn over what they built while the girls could
keep what they have.
that is all
