boys with female leaders equals a coed *group*, so a male leader is required
The problem here is that no one thinks of "coed' as anything besides "girls,"
and they forget to include the leaders in the "group." Think "male and
female" and it becomes clearer.
I disagree. As the sentence is written in GTSS, it clearly refers to the
participants when it is talking about a coed group. The need for coed
leadership is for a coed group of participants, not due to gender of leaders.
