What is satire anymore? There is no need for satire or fiction since the truth is even more strange.
I was a scout when we had MEN for leaders. MEN who had been to war, MEN who knew how to lead and MEN who knew how to make us able.
I tried to work with scouts when my son came along but the metrosexual revolution namby pambies made me vomit. The parents who threw their kids out at the curb for baby sitting and to hope someone else might do what they wouldn’t do. The masses of single mothers looking for a father figure and the sad effeminate boys who needed one. Then there were the dykes who were weaseling their way into all manner of things and the idiots who thought you must go to woodbadge and training led by these, these wretched things.
I was staying with scouts for my son and he was staying in it for me. We both made the admission to each other that neither one of us was enjoying it and so we quit and just did our thing together... it was much better that way.
Women do not belong in Boy Scouts but I’m not sure anybody does anymore the way it is. Very sad.
This world is not my home.
Uhm - sorry it didn’t work for you. I’m likely close to your age, and was a Scout for 5 years as a youth. I’m a Scout Leader now. I don’t find any real problem having ladies as leaders as long as they run the program correctly, i.e. don’t be a Mom - be a Mentor/Coach.
The fact is that Boy Scouts (not cubs) is a Boy lead organization if done correctly. Thus, it isn’t nearly that important whether the adult leaders are men or women.
Just to put all my cards on the table - I’ve been with my own son from Tiger cubs through him receiving his Eagle a year ago. I’m still the Scout Master and plan on staying such for a few more years.
I feel your pain.
There are some good women leaders, but they’re outnumbered by the feminist types.
Also, the nannies.
Quick story, SM called and said a Scout had done severe enough to warrant intervention by the TC. Had put him on the list for nominees for OA election. Wanted to know what to do. I told him to use his judgement as a SM, if the boy was in that much trouble, he wasn’t upholding the Oath and Law.
Boy was removed from the list. Parents threw a complete conniption. The word got out. A female District Cmte member started this whispering campaign against the SM. Saying that what he had done was “wrong, you just don’t do that to a boy”. I told her to shut her yap, the boy broke the rules and was getting corrected.
Eventually the SM was forced to step down because of those cackling hens running around. And I was encouraged to quit the District Cmte.
The feminists got themselves a twofer on that one.
