Still the same topic of discussion

Regarding the girls in Boy Scouts of America issue-
Evidently we're currently being sued for membership by the family of one of
our own in California. There are twins and the boy (and dad) is in BSA and
the girl is argueing she should be allowed equal rights to go camping, etc.,
and earn the rank of Eagle.
Sorry, can't remember any more details, its in the Chicago Sun-Times
editorial section in an article by Dennis Byrne on 3/29.
On a separate note of the same subject, someone wrote about his personal
worries with a 14-year-old girl going out with boys on outings.
Once that 14-year-old is out of 8th grade she can be an Explorer in any Post
she wants and she does not require a parent's signature to join. (But still
would require a permission slip for outings.)
Exploring handles boys and girls that age in a co-ed setting every day.
Settle down and relax, its probably the safest place for her to be.
