Men's RightsBoys Scouts of America will be allowing Girls to join in 2019 (self.TheRedPill)

submitted by AncientScrolls

The downfall of an organization that was once a symbol of masculinity to many men began this Wednesday

-The world has gone totally nuts this week

Today the The Boy Scouts of America announced plans to broadly accept girls, marking a historic shift for the century-old organization and setting off a debate about where girls better learn how to be leaders. I wonder how long It will take, until girls are able to invade all male only spaces. Also I wonder if they will ever let boys join the "girl scouts". Like all feminists its a one-way relationship. Its all about them and never about us.

Why females are allowed to have female-spaces only and we men aren´t allowed to have our exclusive activities and spaces anymore? I guess its only a matter of time until girls are also allowed into men only bathrooms as well. Even the Boy Scouts is becoming a cucked organization due to the Modern SJW Culture. Looks like in a not too far future there will be no all-male spaces. Not even Boy Scouts. The continuous feminization of our nation demands that women will be allowed to access all male-only spaces.

In the New York Times article one of the mothers states why she thinks the boy scouts is a better fit to certain girls than the original girl scouts

“The problem with the Girl Scout curriculum is that it’s very focused on who your leader is for your particular troop,” said Rebecca Szetela, a mother of four from Canton, Mich. “If you have a mom who’s really into crafts and girlie stuff and being a princess, then that’s what your Girl Scout troop is going to be like. If you have a daughter who’s more rough and tumble, it’s not going to be a good fit.”

I guess girls now a days dont want to behave like girls they want to be Tomboys and be treated as if they are a man. I guess this is all a consequence of years of feminist indoctrination which teaches that being feminine and looking for a man to support you is plain wrong. However what worries me more is what the consequences of the Boy Scouts allowing girls inside will be in the education of our boys. Instead of boys trying to compete to show who follows the manly virtues of friendship, leadership and camaraderie, that the boy scouts preach. They will be too worried in trying to impress girls thus making them put Women on a pedestal as their main goal instead of them worrying about their crew or getting Scout Badges.

  • The program for allowing girls to join will be starting in 2019

Is this the end of the Boy Scouts? They already have the girl scouts why do they need to also invade our Boy Scouts? How long it will be until NBL and MBLA starts allowing girls in as well?

Girls don't actually want that, they are following a certain trend/agenda/propaganda pushed forward aggressively by women who think they know better, but actually don't.

[–]DrinkMyPenis 135 points136 points  (10 children)

I feel bad for any young girl or woman who buys into the feminist brand. At the root of it, it's really all just post-wallers envious of their younger counterparts, so they do and say anything they can to """"""guide them"""""" (read: sabotage them) into being joyless shrills who loathe any aspect of their femininity that might appeal to a man.

These girls will end up being bitter and miserable while they're still young, and waste their entire youth that way, which is ultimately the end goal of the crabby, jealous cat ladies """guiding""" them.

[–]plainposter 22 points23 points  (2 children)

that's an interesting perspective..

[–]fromthecrypt8 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Agreed. Pretty interesting actually. Even some of the beta males who embrace this can be seen in this light; even though the standard thought is that they couldnt get bitches in the normal context of masculine male/feminine female, so they succumbed to a narrative that they think will get them laid, there are also traces of Chad-envy in the ways those "men" encourage the feminist imperative.

[–]BobbyPeru 9 points10 points  (1 child)

This 3rd level of feminism has so many signs that it is going to implode. You just pointed out one more I hadn't considered.

[–]biggerbetterjobs 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Couldn't agree more with what you said. Not all women, but I feel like a lot of these particular types of women are mentally ill, self-sabotaging, and create chaos everywhere they go.

[–]SovereignSoul76 1 point2 points  (0 children)

crabby

....not sure if that double entendre was intended, but regardless, it was perfect for the context.

[–]LordThunderbolt 16 points17 points  (7 children)

Guys, there are exceptions to the rule. Tombiys have always existed. It doesn't mean they're dykes either. They're just more willing to get a little dirty compared to most girls.

What I don't understand is why the girl scouts aren't more tough in their curriculum like the boy scouts. They wanted to join the boy scouts before but couldn't, so they created their own thing. But their own thing literally became their own thing and is nothing luke the boy scouts. It shows how natural it is for men and women to be different from each other. The girls dont want to learn about knots and camp in forests in damp amdirty conditions. No they want to bake cookies and do girly little things. Which leads to the conclusion that both groups must be kept separate because of a condlict of interest and motivations. Instead of sending tomboys to the boy scouts and lower the standards for the boy scouts, they should nake it mandatory for the girl scouts to have the same curriculum as the boy scouts and raise their standards.

[–][deleted] 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Give it a few years... The camps and survival skills will disappear from the curriculum and be replaced by baking and girly things.

    It is female envy - you have something of valur they have no access to.

    They see that the boys take long hikes to Yellowstone for example and never take into account that hiking for a prolonged time does require cut backs on sanitation and general comfort.

    [–][deleted] 18 points19 points  (1 child)

    Hey they're simply filling the gaping leadership role created by a massive demographic of beta men. I don't blame the women for doing this. It's their imperative to take control when men don't.

    [–]TheGlassStone 10 points11 points  (0 children)

    You’re absolutely right, and I’ll take it a step further. Men who are beta males have been scared off from being a leader because of the feminists. With the culture going completely against any form of masculinity, they cower and become useless, and like you said, leaving that gap wide open for women to fill it, all the while those feminists are falsely claiming it was theirs from the beginning.

    [–]GuitarHero07 102 points103 points  (10 children)

    I'm wondering if this move is simply due to decreasing enrollments? The number of boys enrolled in Boy Scouts keeps plummeting year after year. This may be an attempt to recruit more members.

    EDIT: l just did some quick Googling and indeed, the Girl Scouts are strongly opposed to this change because they see it as an attempt to poach their potential enrollees.

    [–][deleted] 70 points71 points  (7 children)

    This is the real reason. The Girl Scouts are actually against this idea.

      [–]QuestComm 18 points19 points  (2 children)

      ...why are Scouts enrollments decreasing?

      As it turns out, the Mormons used to have an intimate relationship with the Boy Scouts of America. However, this relationship seems to have weakened - they pulled out their age 14-18 boys from BSA's Varsity and Venturing programs recently.

      The overt rationale is that these programs are no longer a good fit for advancing the LDS church's goals for this age group; however, some suspect that the BSA's allowance of "openly gay leaders and employees" [quoted from the CNN article linked above (technically, I linked to an archive.is version, not the page itself)] starting two years ago may have also played a factor in causing this action.

      No matter the real reason, though, the disappearance of a bunch of Mormon Scouts might be enough to account for part of the decreasing enrollments in the short term.

      [–][deleted] 3 points4 points  (0 children)

      LDS is even more alphacentric than other American subcultures. The alphas literally marry multiple wives and have multiple series of kids, while the betas are outcast as teenagers.

      [–]randarrow 48 points49 points  (2 children)

      Because they are expensive, cliqueish, outdated, boring, fascist organizations which have effectively become coddling day cares for children, rather than enabling children to learn how to safely explore the world on their own? Because it's hard for single parents, and single kids, to get involved.

      Read the original boy scout manual some time, it's a trip. Has instructions for building a log cabin. Has car maintenance tips. Destructive, dangerous, non-pc, fun stuff....

      Scouts refered to exploring the world. Now it apparently means including everyone but atheists, and building up safe spaces for children who are not from broken homes.

      [–]LordThunderbolt 3 points4 points  (0 children)

      And all the molestation going on as well. There's that too

      [–]Unnormally2 4 points5 points  (0 children)

      I spoke with the leader of my old Troop recently and he was telling me how they were pretty low on members. I remember when I was a member, we must have had at least a dozen scouts and maybe 4 Adult leaders.

      They will be too worried in trying to impress girls

      Yea, this is going to be cataclysmic for the social dynamic that scout troops have.

      Step 1: females must be included.

      Step 2: females must be equal in representation.

      Step 3: females must be equal at the finish line.

      There's a bunch of underemployed veterans sitting around not doing anything. We could hire them to teach children field and rifle skills.

      [–]Troll_Name 113 points114 points  (1 child)

      That sounds like a nonprofit that's actually worth donating for.

      Hunt, fish, cook, build, prepare, adapt, thrive. The head of the organization should be the Primitive Technology guy from Youtube - the emperor of the neolithic.

      Allow females into the organization but require an unyielding physical proficiency test to actually go on trips. It'll last until lawyers force the tests to yield.

      This needs to be upvoted to the top. GLO says we need an organization like appleseed bam, 74+ upvotes. SockPuppet presents exact solution, says we do, it's Appleseed, no fucks given and 7+ upvotes.

      Appleseed people. Volunteer or take the classes. They also teach American History of the revolutionary during the breaks and how the US broke away from it's King.

      Not really full skill set, more like just a shooting course.

      I’ve seen videos in Eastern European countries where even the girls can strip an AK, if there’s ever a war our youth is woefully unprepared.

      Our youth can't strip a pencil

      [–]Dravous 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      In fairness that's really easy to do. You can teach it in 5 minutes. The AR platform is actually a lot harder to learn.

      Gets PTSD right in front of all the boyscouts

      [–]AncientScrolls[S] 30 points31 points  (7 children)

      That wouldn't be a bad idea after all. Maybe It would resurrect the core manly values that once made the Boy Scout great for many years when it was founded in 1910.

      However I´m almost 100 percent sure the mainstream media and SJW would try to destroy us in order to not let this dream of ours happen.

          This reminds me of when i played football against a girl back in high school - she seemed so happy to play with the boys.

          Especially when a dude on our team trucked the fuck out of her and she was on the sidelines the rest of the game. Girl power.

          This is great news. The more organizations leftists destroy the larger the vacuum they will be creating for us and our values. While their Cuck scouts are getting the tranny badge ours will be learning to shoot.

          Ok scouts, in order to get your cuck badge you must learn to be a responsible cuck!

          Go on the internet and learn some PUA tactics from youtube videos. Now, apply them to a girl at your school and ask her out to see a movie with you and your friends!

          Be sure to pay for her ticket and her pop corn. Now when she meets your AMOG friend, watch her lose interest in you and be taken by Chad don't be a jealous insecure A-HOLE though! ;). Make sure not to eat any of her popcorn and stay with her and chad but give them a little space/privacy until the movie is over :)

          Don't forget to give her a kiss goodnight so she can then press sexual assault charges on you.

          Congratulations scout, you have your cuck-badge now. You have learned the rightful virtue of matriarchy and offering your partner to the best seed available in your social group.

          I see a large no.of boys being accused of sexual assault and rape. I don't think this process will last long.

          [–]reddick1 17 points18 points  (0 children)

          This brings back a memory of when I was in 7th grade or so. Me and some kids were fooling around outside during recess. We had some dumb game where we would carry someone on our back and go around kicking people. We involved some girls in this.

          After recess ended the teacher brings me out to the hallway and asks me if I touched my female classmate somewhere inappropriate. I was flabbergasted and had no clue what he was talking about. This was probably a bit before I hit puberty and didn't even care about girls. The teacher recognized my innocence.

          Now I can look back and realize one of the girls basically accused me of sexual assault for kicking her during a game at recess.

          I was in the boy scouts at that time too. We would always play rough and talk boys stuff. Guess now they'll have to play dodge the rape accusation.

          [–]lopsidedlucky 24 points25 points  (0 children)

          This. The leadership can't even leave the boys alone and now they'll be given girls. Yeah, that won't end well.

          [–]Hoodwink 2 points3 points  (0 children)

          Yeah. They're going to have a lot of issues. Not only that, you might get a higher percentage of pedophiles becoming scoutmasters or something.

          Very well put. Don't like the Girl Scouts? Start the fucking Outdoor Girls Club or something.

          Because it's quite clearly not about the activities, it's about BEING PRESENT TO MONITOR, OBSERVE, AND MANIPULATE what is going on at BSA. Re-read TRM's "Male Space" for a clearer picture of this.

          ....won't be long now before women start demanding the roles of scout leaders throughout the country. Ya know, to keep things fair and balanced. Besides, having a grown man camping with a young girl?!? Only a CREEP would want to do that!

          [–]theDukesofSwagger 0 points1 point  (0 children)

          Yeah, does nobody understand what that means? The Girl Scouts don’t have a lot of outdoorsy activities for the sole fact that the majority of their members don’t want to do them.

          [–]Senior Endorsed Contributormax_peenor 52 points53 points  (3 children)

          They can rename it the Vaginal Genders of America, representing vagina folks and mangina folks. As always, men will go elsewhere and build something new. The Vaginal Genders will ride it into the ground until no one wants to do it any more.

          I find it hilarious that the Girl Scouts have publicly called it a bad idea. Of course, because all their members will rush to become Boys, since they all hate woman so much and want to be males. The nurturing, proper mothers than ran Girl Scouts will be left holding their clit-dicks.

          Actually made me laugh out loud. Entirely accurate.

          [–]number1journeyfan 79 points80 points  (26 children)

          I don't usually post on here but this is something very important to me. I achieved the rank of Eagle Scout and the BSA was a very important part of making me who I am today. This sickens me. The wonderful thing about BSA was that it was an opportunity for young men to be young men. We pushed each other to be better, not for women, but for ourselves. Furthermore, it allowed young men leadership opportunities and, more importantly, allowed men to make decisions on male only councils. Ever worked on a committee or leadership board with women? Impossible.

          Now, one thing this post ignores is that the BSA website stated that troops will still be single gendered, but girls will now have access to the same programs and ranks. Some see may see this as reasonable, but we all know that feminists are never appeased. It's only a matter of time until the boy scouts is an estrogen pit.

          It makes my stomach turn.

          I worked hard for that achievement under the pretense that it was an achievement for men. They are devaluing what I spent 12 years of my life working towards. This is the slippery slope. When they allowed gays in a few years back that was the beginning. It'll only get worse. No longer am I proud to have been a boy scout. I'm ashamed.

          [–][deleted] 28 points29 points  (1 child)

          As an eagle scout, I'm really disappointed.

          One summer at Boy Scout camp, a Venture Troop came to camp and it included a few girls. The entire camp was no longer boys focusing on learning life skills: it became boys trying to impress girls.

          [–]number1journeyfan 8 points9 points  (0 children)

          I went to Philmont a few summers ago with nine of the best guys I've ever known. Our troops "sister" Venturing Crew went at the same time as us, but on a different trek.

          There group had two couples and two single girls and guess what happened every time they went into a camp? Luckily my group was smart enough to see past that, but it definitely affects those new to scouting who need to develop skills outside of the realm of women.

          [–]Herdsengineers 45 points46 points  (13 children)

          I'm with you. Another Eagle Scout here. My troop was led by an old retired Navy guy. Total RP man. He had a motto - you can't starve to death in a weekend. If you screwed yourself up on a weekend camping trip, you most likely would still come home alive, he let you deal with it, and wouldn't rescue someone who did something stupid.

          I get that Scouting's ranks are shrinking, and they've got big money problems. I get they are trying to poach Girl Scouts for enrollment money. It sucks. These days (and it had started when I was in back in the early 90's), Scouting is seen as a thing for dweebs and social outcasts, or worse - the occasional pedophile. That's why the enrollment has dropped.

          That's a marketing problem that Scouting's professional leadership hasn't been able to solve (it wouldn't be hard) because they've become a bunch of BP cucked assholes. They've compromised on their values, so they've lost the support of a lot churches, they've gotten caught up in politics instead of focusing on a mission/set of beliefs and living by it. Modernizing their presentation to the public (as in uniforms and advertising) would help a lot too.

          This isn't going to help Scouting. Scouting needed to fix itself, not try to rescue poor little girls whose on program is a fucking joke (by the way - Girl Scouts has always been a joke, could it have ever been anything else?). Let the damn girls fend for themselves.

          I hate this change. Healthy, all male spaces are the only place that young boys can be turned into stronger men. Boys need to be away from women to grow into men. Plain and simple. I've seen troops be destroyed by letting women into the adult leadership roles. Letting them join in this new capacity?

          I'm very discouraged by it. I weep for the future my son is facing.

          It's probably not totally undeserved. My scout troop really was like that. It was the main reason I lasted barely a year.

          [–]Herdsengineers 12 points13 points  (3 children)

          I've seen it in other troops. The leadership is awful in many of them, and getting worse. And as I wrote originally, the marketed image is pretty bad. Scouting has needed an overhaul for a long time. Letting in girls is not it, though. I fear, like so much else, TBP and feminism has already destroyed Scouting beyond repair.

          [–]FinallyRed 6 points7 points  (2 children)

          I actually liked my scout masters. Some of these kids though... I don't know where you're supposed to start if you're not their father.

          [–]Herdsengineers 16 points17 points  (1 child)

          that's true. my scoutmaster was really good about explaining it - while we were on a troop activity, he was in charge. he was everyone's daddy. if some kid or another parent didn't like it, they were free to go to another troop. and if they didn't like it but just bitched all the time, they were "encouraged" to go to another troop. personally, my dad made sure i knew that the guy had permission to kick my ass if needed, and that i'd get another ass kicking from my dad when i got home as well.

          i miss that old bastard.

          fuck yeah, that made me smile.

          [–]number1journeyfan 6 points7 points  (2 children)

          I went back to my old troop and was so disappointed. I remember when I first joined, the guys at the top were cool. Our SPL was driving race cars in tournaments, and our ASPL was on his way to the naval academy. These men were who I looked up to when I was barely a teenager. I returned and they're all lame. Like just boring people. Their interests are video games and cartoons. One boy tried to start a Minecraft group within the Troop and thank god they stopped that idea.

          What pains me the most is that my dad is the one in charge (my brother is still involved). I know that he isn't creating the same climate that made me choose my troop. It's sad.

          I actually just got off the phone with him and confronted him about it and he told me about some changes they are making (more physical activity and focus on development of leadership and social skills within that context) so at least he sees the problem more than I thought he did. He also is pissed about the girl scout shit

          [–]plainposter 6 points7 points  (0 children)

          You're right, and it's probably because 9 out of every 10 men are beta males. Can't lead, can't hold frame, don't know what to accomplish, don't know wtf is going on, weak as fuck, huddle in groups and passive aggressively bitch at each other, etc. Top 10% of dudes are alpha.. meaning we need to pick more alpha leaders.. because that's what they are evolved to do.. lead. We have to stop letting beta males lead, it's not working and they aren't designed to handle that kind of stress.

          My exposure to scouts in the beginning was a military vet scoutmaster who was soft spoken and had an easy smile, but he was hardcore. His idea of weekend camping was backpacking 5-10 miles into the mountains or the country, then establishing camp. It was exhilarating! Earning the ranks and badges under this guy was effortless because we were in the middle of nowhere and so badges were naturally earned as a consequence of exploring the mountains or the country. He made sure that his assistants were on the ball when it came to the more narrowly focused badges and ranks, there was no one there to get in your way. He was hard-nosed too though, if he didn't feel that you really understood some aspect to scouting he would make damn sure you did before he would award you a badge or a rank. You felt like you were actually achieving something and learning something.

          Then he rejoined the military and one of his assistants stepped into his shoes. That's when I learned about car camping. This guy was so lazy, it spread to the entire troop. Everyone just camped out of the cars. There was no organization. No one was working to advance, not a single scout. Even when I asked to work on my rankings I was told there was not enough opportunity to do so since the higher ranks require a leadership component. Soon after, I stopped going never having even achieved Star. My old troop doesn't exist anymore. I despise people like that lazy assistant, he had no idea the damage he was doing.

          If the military vet had stayed just one more year, man I think I could have learned so much from him, cause he was really active with the top ranks.

          BSA website stated that troops will still be single gendered, but girls will now have access to the same programs and ranks. Some see may see this as reasonable, but we all know that feminists are never appeased. It's only a matter of time until the boy scouts is an estrogen pit.

          I get where you're coming from but gays are massively different in their psychology to straight men. I say that as someone who has worked in travel for a long time (80% women, 15% gay men, 5% straight men). I am completely down with whatever the fuck lifestyle (seriously who gives a shit) but culturally gays are completely incompatible with the sort of positive masculinity we all are trying to foster. It's no problem being friends with them or whatever but just be aware the idea that gay men and straight men are the same is no different to the blue pill idea that men and women are the same. I.e. completely false.

          [–]Alcibiades_Rex 1 point2 points  (0 children)

          I've always been against gay scouts because Scouts really shouldn't be sexually promiscuous. Also, it can never be a problem if you never let it be a problem. If a dude's gay, but doesn't act on it, then he is effectively not gay for those around him. Similarly, as long as the gay dude isn't trying to have a romantic/sexual relationship it won't be a problem. A Scout is trustworthy, not honest. You can get away with a lie of omission as long as you make damn sure nothing bad will happen because of it.

          As someone who has introduced more than two dozen city kids to the wilderness, sometimes the only time in their entire youth, I have to ask: Besides complain and hatch elaborate conspiracy theories, what have YOU done to improve Scouting-like activities for the youth in your community?

          Quite bluntly the girl scout troops I see look like they suck ass. The only thing you ever see them doing is setting up a card table outside the bank or grocery to sell cookies to strangers, as their fat moms sit in folding chairs in the background yackity-yacking and mostly ignoring their children. I can imagine this appealing only to the type of young woman destined to grow up to be a Basic Bitch with no interests or hobbies. To a one, the women I've had successful LTRs with are the ones whose families went on camping trips, day hikes, and visited interesting places.

          I see this as a somewhat desperate effort to keep troop numbers up to a sustainable level. If local troops have an overabundance of young males involved already, they'd be too full and busy to consider accepting females. Fact is, they are struggling to keep enough members to have a bare minimum troop size, which for any organization can become a death spiral of plummeting participation and interest.

          If the boy scouts turning to girls to keep their membership numbers up concerns you, ask yourself what YOU have done and could do to help these organizations thrive in your community. Whining about it on the internet and doing nothing IRL is decidedly un-masculine and probably part of the problem.

            [–]plainposter 9 points10 points  (0 children)

            yeah, when any organization starts desperately grasping at straws to stay afloat.. it's a lost cause. surviving organizations have disciplined, humble, hungry and smart people in leadership teams that guide the whole company to success. Any questions are asked around 3 main guidelines: 1) is this something we can be the best in the world at? 2) are we passionate about this? and 3) what are our economic drivers? (profit per x; child, lodge, geographical area, etc)

            source: The Advantage, Patrick Lencioni. great book.

            instead of sacrificing their entire concept of a BOYS scouting club, they could have easily ramped up their marketing , changed uniforms, put out ads and radio time saying how badass the boyscouts are now, look at all this cool shit they've done, emotionally hype it up through viral youtube videos of boyscouts doing insane shit, but instead, someone in a leadership position who really shouldn't be there, decided to let girls in. what, a fucking, idiot.

            [–]Dravous 3 points4 points  (0 children)

            The reason their numbers are plummeting is largely due to the Mormons pulling out, which they are doing because of the scouts caving to other pc bullshit. If they wanted to maintain their numbers they should have started by maintaining their principles.

            As someone who has organized group camp outs and hikes for grown ups, (inverter margaritas for the win), can build a decent camp fire, who can cook, and someone with decent income and time, I can say their loss.

            Some of my favorite places are badly hit by pine beetles. Some of the trails have 4 or 5 trees fallen across them per mile. It has crossed my mind that it would make a fine community service to get up there and saw those trees, along with other basic trail maintenance. It would require funding. I'm guessing the funding could be had, but it would be actual work....I don't know if the system would recognize it as such, but it would be a good way to get community service hours in.

            [–]Endorsed ContributorMentORPHEUS 1 point2 points  (0 children)

            Those bark beetles have been devastating what the fire hasn't in our local forests too. Minor trail maintenance is something I always do anyway when I'm able (leave forest better than you found it ethic). Doing it on a larger scale would require input from the local ranger station and would probably be best suited for an all adults group like a RP Fraternity chapter. Kids + liability insurance requirements and all. Getting kids and teens to help with minor trail mending as you hike is definitely doable.

              This will also mean female scout leaders in the boyscouts for camping trips etc. The effect of this will be that the boyscouts will become a girly club and boys won't want to join.

              This entire post is written from a defeatist perspective. Girls aren't "invading" anything. Sjw culture is "taking" anything away from men. What is happening is men are allowing girls free entry into a boys only group. Men are allowing sjw culture to invade their community.

              Do you think women "fought and won" their rights? Can a woman fight against a man and win anything?

              I don't know? Can a man fight a fully grown lion and take away its kill?

              Absolutely fucking not. It is a physical impossibility.

              Men gave women their rights, men yielded to sjw culture and men are now allowing girls to sign up and enter a boys only group.

              Guys, we are responsible for what is happening. We are men and we are the only line of defense against poison of every genre entering and pervading our communities.

              Stop complaining about the "injustice" like a fagget and take action to reverse the mentality. It doesn't take much, in fact. Go start a men's group in your community, reach out to your brothers and friends and instil them with some real life, objective reality. These small efforts are how femenism has taken over the west and it is by these small efforts that logic and stoic objectivity can be reinstated.

              I don't think that women could get into the NBA. They're just not athletically skilled enough.

              Every other male space is fucked.

              That's what women do naturally, though. They invade our spaces and infest the place with their vaginas. Pretty much America and the entire modern world has failed the shit test. Sadly, it's very hard to get the respect back in a relationship when you lose too many shit tests.

              As a kid, my mom and I had to stay with my sister and her 2 daughters temporarily in MD on Andrews AFB when we lost our house to a fire in NY. Being only 8 years old at the time, the time I was left alone at her house was extremely limited and never at night. That being the case, I was often a third wheel (fourth, if you’re a hair splitter) on many of their excursions when my mother was at work or back in NY settling up our situation. This included Girl Scout meetings; I would sit in the back while my nieces did their thing and my sister chaperoned or whatever. My presence was often reviled by the girls (kids, especially young girls, are verbal assholes, we all know this) and was often a point of contention with the adult women; despite my situation being explained to them by all of us multiple times they never seemed to grasp that I wasn’t some deliberate infiltrator, that I didn’t just decide to crash some Girl Scouts meeting. I mean, they didn’t even share the damn cookies. For almost a solid year I went through this every Wednesday night that Mom wasn’t home. Their sanctum was so defiled by my maleness that I started bringing a GameBoy (I’m 36) and headphones just to tune out the teasing and bullshit from every new mother, to the tune of “he DOES know he can’t be a Girl Scout, right?! I mean, it’s in the name!”. And now this. What a fucking country.

              They should replace boy scouts with white-collar office scouts. Co-ed obviously. Because much of what the boy scouts do is outdated, white-collar office scouts will instead be taught a more modern 21st century curriculum that will prepare them for their future lives as office drones serving the matriarchy. Boys will be exposed to many modern lessons such as:

              • Never being alone with a girl in your tent.
              • The importance of girls winning 50% of the badges.
              • How to start every criticism with, "This was really good. I just had a few thoughts."
              • How to flash a big fake smile and greeting to dozens of people that you see everyday whenever you pass them in the hallway on the way to the bathroom.
              • and much much more!

              Women are the most miserable they've ever been; debatably that even includes during major wars. But men are to blame.

Our fathers let us down here too. It's why our grandfathers constantly shit on them. But it's our turn now to right the ship.

              Who's with me?

              That being said, females and their helicopter parents want to infiltrate our clubs because they see us having fun. We sold them a shit deal to get more workers and taxes in the system, and the weak betas around us defend these dumb actions because they are the useful idiots who think they know what they're doing. Instead they pull in the lost girls around them in hopes to simply smell their soiled panties. This news is unfortunate, but it further confirms our need to create anew as they destroy our current systems. Our fathers reaped the benefits of a thriving system and left us with the mess we see today. Now it's on us.

              Unfortunately speaking up about any of these problems in society gets you labeled a misogynist and shit canned from your job on some trumped up HR bullshit. Unless you are independently wealthy the only recourse is to keep your head down publicly.

              They will be too worried in trying to impress girls thus making them put Women on a pedestal as their main goal instead of them worrying about their crew or getting Scout Badges.

              A lot of men already do put women on a pedestal, and it's not from gender integration in social activities. It's from a fucked up sense of entitlement and necessity that finding a partner (sexual or romantic) somehow completes you as a person.

              I would say its also due to the fact that most boys, grow up with few male role models, in a culture in which teaches them from a young age to worship females. Its our mission to teach them that they are the prize not the other way around.

              I think you're half right.

              I believe it should be common knowledge that you're just as much the prize as she is. You shouldn't ever sacrifice your own happiness and well being for the sake of admiration from ANYONE, and your priority should ALWAYS be on your own self-worth and self-respect, but I don't see anything at all wrong with wanting to take that same feeling you have for yourself and give it to someone that you admire, and that admires you as well.

              Indeed. However I just try not to exaggerate in showing my affection to any girl I date or have a one nightstand with. Because if I do they start thinking that I´m desperate for their love or affection and start looking down at me and think they are too good for me. Never exaggerate in your demonstrations of fondness.

              Of course. Honesty, always.

              I've never felt great about being dishonest with a person regarding how I feel for them, whether I'm only interested in something casual or if I genuinely feel affection for them.

              America already lacks rites of passage for males. I used to believe earning eagle scout was a real rite of passage and I respected any eagle scout as a man. I don't really give a fuck if girls are in scouts, just call it scouting. It's just unnerving that this rite of passage no longer exists...

              Nothing stopping father's taking their kids and maybe kids friends out camping or hunting. He'll, of you know a a few tough guys you can get together and take all your kids along without being part of any organisation that you have to bow down to. The more regulation they push at us. The more self reliant and independsnt we become.

              [–]JoeDrunk 1 point2 points  (1 child)

              That would have made me stay in Boy Scouts a lot longer. I can only imagine the fun on camping trips.

              [–]Daddie0 1 point2 points  (2 children)

              My sons where in boy scouts for a couple of years. A lot of the male volunteers, where I will give them credit for stepping up, where very Beta and not good role models for masculinity. Of course they would always have to consult with the den mothers too.

              I look at this as putting a bullet into something's head that is basically dead already. Whatever remnants of masculinity where left in boy scouts are going to be squeezed out of it to accommodate the girls so they can succeed over the boys.

              [–]Quizlyx 1 point2 points  (0 children)

              Scouts are gay anyways. Take your son camping and hunting, bring his friends along. He'll learn about nature, toughness, independence, life/death, and you don't have to worry about him coming home crying after penis inspection day. Have you ever met an Eagle Scout who wasn't a loser? They aren't the only ones camping, but they are the lamest ones camping.

              This is a rare time I sympathize with women complaining. As stupid as Boy Scouts are, the Girl Scouts are even worse. It's like 10% of the "learning" boy scouts do mixed with child-labor-law-defining cookie sale hours.

              I attained my eagle scout in 1986. I'm am order of the arrow member, and NESA life member. I served as president of a high adventure post as an explorer, and the post was open to both young men and women.

              We didn't have problems in our post because we had strong leadership. Teenagers will always be teenagers and try to do teenager type stuff, it's part of life. The key is strong leadership, to encourage the correct behavior and to apply disciplinary action for any individual who can't (or won't) comply. There was one main distinction between the explorers and the rest of scouting, and that was the explorers were age restricted. High school or older. They were more mature than the younger scouts - marginally, but they were.

              In this way, the younger scouts were allowed to act like the boys they were, and screw up on their own and act like idiots. Who are we kidding, adolescent boys are walking morons. However, scouting was there to help provide guidance for boys during their transition into adulthood, using adult males as role models and counselors. It was a good program for the most part.

              Now that females have been introduced into the program, I'm thinking that something has gone terribly wrong at the top leadership levels. It's a serious dilution of the core brand of the BSA, one that was cultivated for over a century. I'm sure it was not a good move, but I wasn't consulted nor did I receive any communication about the change other than what I've seen in news media from executive.

              As for myself - I'm retired now and will have significant amounts of free time to invest in my community. I was planning to spend time in a leadership role in one of my local packs or troops. I'm not sure now. Introduction of young girls into the program will create an unhealthy dynamic within the group, and I don't want to be a part of that - I would not be comfortable camping in the woods as the only adult (or with one other female leader) and a group of boys and girls. There is too much room for he-said, she-said situations and all that does is create a distraction from what should be the entire focus - creating solid citizens to serve as role models for the community at large. Not to mention the potential for personal destruction and loss of all my assets, just because some female decides that I looked at her the wrong way. History is rife with events where males did nothing wrong yet suffered mightily under completely false accusations of women - yet when discovered, women making such false accusations were never prosecuted.

              Time will tell if the BSA is able to survive this move. Personally, I'm saying "no thanks"...unless the troop is privately sponsored, and all male including leaders.

              [–]HumbleLion0891 1 point2 points  (0 children)

              Wow. Good thing I'll be out of scouts then. (Currently 16.) But Damn. I'm gonna feel bad for the BSA in the coming years. Love the organization, there's nothing like the immense concentration the troops have, with it being just guys. I distinctly remember the Klondike Derby.(a big thing in NY BSA. All winter survival) Our troop is a BEAST in that. Usually 1st place, and we drop everything to be the best we can be. Now, as stated by OP, Boy Scouts probably won't have that anymore. The guys will just be concentrating on the ladies instead of what will make them better.

              "Men" deserve everything they get. If you act nice and pander to women, they lose respect for you, and you will inevitably regret your decisions in the long run. On the plus side, "Make me a marshmallow sandwich bitch!"

              [–]Hugh_Munghous 5 points6 points  (0 children)

              This is what happens when you allow small concessions over time. They made allowances for adult women in leadership roles and homosexuals as well. Now the “Boy Scouts” won’t even be the Boy Scouts. Keep this in mind because this is what they’re trying to do in other aspects of our society, such as gun rights. They can’t destroy the whole thing at once so they take it piece by piece, year after year until there’s nothing left to take apart anymore.

              [–][deleted] 4 points5 points  (1 child)

              I honestly don't care about girls in boy scouts. The heavy problem i see coming with this is girls not keeping up resulting in reducing the overall difficulty of making it. Which then results in less stuff being taught to the boys. One could make the argument too much females screw with male relationship-building, forming brotherhood and so on BUT i heavily doubt enough young girls can be fucked to go there. Meaning its an odd female or two you find in the groups, not taking away on that aspect. But yeah the first stated problem could suck...alot.

              Official response from the Girl Scouts...

              "Girl Scouts is the best girl leadership organization in the world, created with and for girls. We believe strongly in the importance of the all-girl, girl-led, and girl-friendly environment that Girl Scouts provides, which creates a free space for girls to learn and thrive."

              Let's flip the genders.

              Let's pretend the Girl Scouts allowed Boys to join and the Boy Scouts responded with this...

              "Boy Scouts is the best boy leadership organization in the world, created with and for boys. We believe strongly in the importance of the all-boy, boy-led, and boy-friendly environment that Boy Scouts provides, which creates a free space for boys to learn and thrive. "

              Magically, it becomes oppressive.

              - "Yes it's tough working a job that demands your attention 24/7 but it is so rewarding to feel empowered and in control 24/7. I also have a husband and a child. When I get up each day I take of my child for an hour then go to work. I work for 12 hours then come home and take care of my child for an hour. Then I sleep for 5 hours and do it again. 7 days a week"

              Well... There goes meaningful eagle scout projects and trips to Philmont.

              Fuck.

              Tbf, there is a possible world where this works, and the girls who can't perform get weeded out because standards do not change. I will say, the venture crew I helped run worked strictly on merit, girls and guys were kicked quickly if they couldn't shape up.

              But let's be serious here. Is that likely?

              Eagle scout, ex venture crew leader, pissed off.

              [–]blr1998 0 points1 point  (0 children)

              it's not the military...you can't weed people out of scouts. it's fucked for good. On a side note, I remember during philmont being rounded up at a certain camp/stop (forget what they're called) and the leaders asking who cat called at the venture scout girls. I actually knew who did it, a crew of dudes from Boston who were hard as fuck and didn't care about shit but knew how to have fun. Nobody owned up and they reported it up...

              This is a grasp to save the orgonisation more so than creeping feminism. The rates of people joining the scouts is declining changing it to scouts and allowing girls to enter to effectively doubles the amount of potential people who can join this is a smart business move.

              I don't know if you caught wind that the Girl Scouts are now complaining that it won't be good for the girls due to some unresolved harassment issues or whatever. They will be complaining that girls are allowed in. They will just complain.
