I couldn't agree with you more. As happens with so many threads on this list,
it seems completely acceptable to extract just the portions of a complete
thought to make your point as needed. Unfortunately, you can explain yourself
'til you are blue in the face, and these anal, bleeding heart , politically
correct morons will not see past the black and white, cut and dried, noses on
But thank you for the re-post because I for one got a kick out of your
explanation, though it is probably way over the heads of most of these people.
All that we need now is Mike Walton to settle us all down with the "BSA" line
on this issue. And then we will all be set straight, thank goodness! (gag,
I truly feel that most of the volunteer leadership, male and female,
involved in the BSA have the right attitude and are striving to keep together
a great program for boys. It is hard enough to succeed, without the narrow
attitudes that we face from within our own program. Too many seem to have an
agenda which has nothing to do with Scouting.
But on a personal note, thanks Bob, it is great to know that we still have
some leaders that have some sense and realize that there are differences in
the genders and we can not change that, try as we might.
And yes, I am posting this reply to the whole list to see who will be first
to jump all over me. Can't wait ....lol.
