I'll write later about my experiences with Venturing, and as a Scoutmaster viewing International Scouting and serving as a Scoutmaster of International Troops.
Some quick questions: If your church has a youth group, is is coed, or segregated by sex? IF your church youth group goes on retreats or choir tours, are the retreats/tours coed or segregated by sex?
I think in the latency period it is important to have all boy groups.....I raised 4 boys and one girl and majored in Child Development for years and see the need between the ages of 4 to 12 to have all boy or all girl groups. After that, I think it is beneficial for some classes to be all boy and all girl (that has been documented on the improvement in grades and concentration) BUT yet, it is imperative that there be places for boys and girls to do things together. Absolutely. Coed groups create unity of the sexes and they learn about each other.
In this society where we are forcing girls into boy activities and visa versa===it is Marxian ideology that there is no biological difference which is a lie—Boys are suffering in all aspects even education—large part of no father figure. But feminization happens if there are no exclusively boy activities. They need to have comaraderie with other boys in the latency period and feel accepted and admired by boys (and men) to develop a healthy male sexual identity. All boys soccer team-—all boys something!
Now, I do NOT say to segregate boys from girls in those ages. THey must interact and not be like Afghanistan or some unnatural situation which keeps them from any interaction. That creates abnormalties also. If you don’t know, Afghanis are homosexual and hate women and the boys dream about having a stable of boys to sodomize when they grow up....it is what is done to them—it is a learned behavior. I was not for all boys and all girls schools but I think that there can be classes where they are separated according to sex. In fact, I think it acknowledges God’s design. We need to acknowledge the difference between boys and girls for sexual identities. Today the androginous society is causing confusion in young children. There is no clear dfferences in the sexes like 60 years ago....and it is feminizing men....Cicero wrote about it in the destruction of the Roman Republic....the effects of a feminized society—it destroyed Rome. But then our destruction is what cultural Marxist ideology (men and women are the same) is all about—to make them interchangeable and destroy the family unit where men and women have no problem going against nature.
Schools are getting rid of the words spouse and wife and husbands for decades now==(partners!!!!!!!!)...Marxian idea to destroy the family unit—destroy the natural “roles” assigned to man and woman. Make the Bible hate speech. Go against nature so they can redesign and play god. Marx hates biology attachments and wants them destroyed. They create individualism and self suffieciency. Happiness in man as our Founders and all men for thousands of years have understood, is that if you go against natural law and God’s laws you will never be happy.
Catholic schools always separated the boys and girls when they discussed sex. That is for the dignity and respect of modesty of the women. It was much more successful than what is happening now. Schools have removed morality from the sex act, along with mystery and beauty and respect which the Catholic schools used to give it, and have made it nothing more than a commodity. (Marxian we are all animals) You see that idea in everything now.
Got to go to church! Will love to discuss further. I have read extensively on this topic and of course, worked with children and in the classroom for 25 years as a volunteer.
