    What is wrong with growing children into adults? Why does it have to be one or the other when we all need to survive on the same planet.

    Seriously. Imagine boys and girls in the 15 to 16 year old range camping in their tents. You really think nothing will happen?

    Umm, because you think they need the BSA for that to happen?

    They might. Why do you think their numbers are down?

    Why not replace it with Trump Youth

    What purpose does this serve?

    Transitioning BSA was already in progress before Trump was sworn in as president.

    I see no real problems with boys and girls doing stuff together, but I have one question - don't you have Girl Guides in the USA? If so - why would any self-respecting young girl want to be a member of the Boy Scouts of America? C'est possible the Boy Scouts of America is losing membership because it is no longer interesting enough to young boys in the 21st century.

    I had no interest in all that 'dib dib dib, dob dob dob,' stuff when I was young - I opted to join the ATC instead, where we got to play with real guns, and occasionally go up in real aircraft.

    You have to supervise them. I would imagine the tents would be segregated. I am required to do overnights with HS students every other year for a popular skills competition. It is a grueling, long weekend. The adults sleep in shifts because parents expect supervision. There are boys from other locations competing there as well. I have never caught any student in a compromising situation except for giggling and talking. Weed is a bigger concern. LOL Just maybe, with integrating boys and girls, both genders will learn to respect each other and we won't have boys behaving like dogs. Since we all have to work with each other in society, I view this as a teaching opportunity.

    The Boy Scouts are hurting - membership has been dropping steadily since the 1970s and 1980s, and their long-running discriminatory policies have eaten away at donation revenue.

    They still don't accept atheists.
