Leaving the ranks of the unbathed / Sexist Female Trainers???

Well, I am now officially "Trained". Boy, was that a long day!
I think we were being passed on some old info, though. Our staff (all
women) announced that female TC Coach, Wolf, Bear and Webelos I DL all
have to wear the yellow shirts to "match the boys". Once your boys
became Webelos II you HAD to buy the tan shirt (they also said Webelos I
HAD to wear the blue, and Webelos II HAD to wear the tan, but then kind
of went back on that). I pointed out that everything seems to indicate
that we have the _option_ between yellow shirt and tan shirt, and
besides, men in those positions don't wear yellow shirts to match the
Is it just me that this seems really odd?
