"And it could just be that Mr. Myers will help his young charges to think about some (important) things they might not have otherwise!"

We have had conversations about the right way to live. Whether or not, there is fruit will not be evident until much later.

"For a traditional Christian man, it becomes, in some parts of the country, very, very difficult to find a mate. "

When I was looking for a suitable mate, I went to a few churches. The results were disappointing in the extreme. I saw no difference in the girls. At one church, the pastor was having a very difficult time convincing the girls they didn't have to put out to get dates. They were just as adament that they did have to put out to get boys to date them. I met my wife at a single's club when a friend invited me to go with him.

You asked me what other men think. I forgot to reply to that question. You will have to ask them. But some of the replies by guys on this thread should give you some idea how many men feel.

It's an amazing mystery how we find our mates. I honestly believe prayer and God had quite a bit to do with finding mine.

"Please don't get me wrong Mr. Meyers, but perhaps you have been exposed to the ominous part of the world for too long, there is another side. We have a great many young women in our church who display the attiributes you seem to see lacking in the women you encounter. I think it is harmful to generalize in any situation, more so if we do not look at both sides."

I have also seen some of these "Christian" women at work, and heard about them. I will not say that all men and women in the churches have gone down the wrong path, but there are many who have. It is no longer enough for the sake of trust to see the word Christian used about a person or a church. You say that there are good women in your church. In many churches, the opposite is true.

Well, I know that I asked God to send me the right woman. I met my wife a day or two later. I didn't question it. We were married in a week. I proposed to her a day or two after we met. It has lasted over 25 years now.

I am glad you posted this. Little public attention is pointed at the Girl Scouts. Their demise as a moral and truthfull group has been obvious for a long time. I really don't know why.

It must be a lack of leadership. It must be a lack of good role models. It must be that the female gender just does not care or want to rock the boat. It must be that fun is just more fun.

Listen up girls! This is your problem! Fix it please!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

"in local MIDDLE schools, girls are rushing head over heals to give boys oral sex. We have had two girls get pregnant in 7th grade. In 9th grade (and this is tony suburban New Jersey), we have a group of 9th grade girls who are actively searching out seniors to devirginize their friends, so that they have bragging rights. "

Yeah, these girls will make wonderful girlfriends and mates. (Sarcasm tag here.) These girls are little lolitas and are completely immoral. They don't improve with age.

You use the word, bragging. One poster here is insistant that girls don't do this sort of thing. I think that many people are not aware of what is really going on in our society today.

"The core values remain the same, but throughout its history Girl Scouting has evolved to meet the needs and interests of girls today," says Karen Solzak Rice, a spokesman for the Mt. Wilson Vista Council of Arcadia, Calif. "Today's Girl Scout activities help girls grow up strong and give them skills for success in today's world." Girl Scouts now can earn the "Ms. Fix-It" badge for learning how to fix a leak, rewire an electrical appliance, or re-caulk a window, and the "Car Care" badge for checking fluids, filling tires to the proper pressure, and performing safety checks.

Oh my God!!! The Sheer horror of it! Are girl scouts taught to fix cars? rewire an electrical appliance???? re-caulk a window?!?!? We must unite in order to stop this un-christian, un-american pushing-of-the- lesbian-agenda!! /sarcasm

Give me a break.......

Hey there Dobgert. I don't think there one post objecting to teaching girls how to caulk a window (or fix cars). As for the lesbian agenda - well, I would say that's quite a bit different! My daughter is welcome to learn how to caulk a window any day.

Yeah, I gave my daughter both blocks and dolls to play with. Now she's a college sophomore studying electrical engineering and playing varsity tennis and softball. Her relationships with both men and women seem normal.

Interesting the differences she sees in the male and female engineering students. The female students are much more highly socialized, the male ones mostly play with machines when they're not in class.

By now you've probably figured out that Don Myers believes women are the source of all evil and men are their innocent victims. This isn't the first thread like this and it won't be the last. I guess these young girls manage to get pregnant by themselves, forcibly rape these young men, and keep them hostage in apartments in order to live with them. Hatred of a gender makes a person unable to see that it takes two to tango.

I won't do anything to help fund this organization. Haven't bought their cookies in many years.

This is funny.

When my scout troop when to girlscout camp in the early eighties, the girl scout leaders stayed up all night, got drunk, raided the girl's cabin as a prank, and made us hike three miles the next morning.

After that, I quit. Those women were scary.

The only thing good about the girl scouts, is the cookies.

when I'll realize just how long it is til GS cookie time.

I enjoy GS cookie time too. It's only then that it's semi-allowable for me to express my dislike of the group. Usually conservatives have to keep their beliefs to themselves at work, but when being harrassed by every mother and father pimping their kids' cookies on everyone gives me the chance to tell them why I don't support that cause.

No, not naive. It just wasn't a big deal. Now, if you're not thinking about sex in some way 24/7, then you're just a prude.
