The Boy Scouts have lost their way and they are circling the drain. First they let the homosexuals in as leaders and scouts. That scared away the Mormons and Mormon $$$. Then they let girls in. More bad news. This used to be a fine organization and now it is a bankrupt cesspool.

Why are you talking rubbish 12:32. "prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Law." That has very little to do with sexuality or gender, nor should it in an a group of primarily comprised of minors. They went bankrupt b/c some adults interjected their sexuality, thinking sexual abuse had a place in responsible citizenship, character development, and self-reliance. Only problem with letting anyone in is some groups apparently insist on teaching boys how to lead with their dick as a primary ethic and act like a brain dead jackoffs like u 12:32.

alone in the great outdoors, a penis is not a water dowsing rod.

In a world where girls need to be in the boy scouts and boys want to wear dresses. Who would have thought we would have incidents ? Weird

Boy scouts just have good facilities and outdoors training. No need to ride your gender and homosexuality fetish.

Having dealt for years with the pack of shitheads who run the Heart Of America Council, this sort of screwup comes as no surprise.

It is far past the time when National Leadership needs to clean out the rats nest of "Scouting Professionals" who have forgotten what they are here for and have become focused on their own career advancement far more that on supporting the local Districts and Troops.
Clean house and rebuild!

And as far as Mic-O-Say, it needs to be abolished immediately!
It should have been absorbed into the Order Of The Arrow decades ago, as the hundreds of these little secrets were. The Order was created as the BSA's sole "Honor Organization" expressly for the purpose of eliminating this sort of "secret society", the existence of which is forbidden by the Scouting Rules. Each one one of them operated by their own rules and avoided openness.
So, the BSA banned them. Purely and simply banned them!

But, Mic-O-Say, led at the time by a local political leader and with access to a large amount on money, chose to simply ignore the BSA's ban, and continued to exist, practicing its laughable hodge-podge of pseudo-Indian rituals and serving its "leaders" at an outlet for seeing little boys run around in loincloths.

Time to clean house at Bartle as well!

Please don't misinterpret this as an attack on the many volunteers who remain dedicated to Scouting, and who continue to struggle with the ongoing task of running Scouting while at the same time dealing with the herculean matter of satisfying the HOA Council's whims and flip-flops.

Surprise, surprise. She wanted to be a pioneer. She wanted in the boys club, but expected 100 years of culture to change when she walked in the room. They can do anything boys can do, but take a little teasing or be noticed as a girl. She was a volunteer. All she had to do was leave. Ain't hard.

Anon 546.... I used to work for HOAC so I understand your frustration and assume you are a volunteer yourself. I heard slightly different details on the early days of Scouting and why Mic O Say was allowed to continue in St Joseph and here. Regardless the toxicity of Bartle has been well shown. Its night and day compared to the other camp in this council- Camp Naish. Unfortunately Naish is not as well attended and has seemed to be made into a Cub Scout and first year Boy Scout camp but then Bartle is really pushed. As a boy I worked at Naish and had a great experience. I took my son to Naish for camp several years back and there were several young ladies on staff and have continued to be on staff there to this day. I'm guessing the click that is Bartle did not let them in until now but I find that hard to believe. Obviously staff from Bartle did not talk to staff at Naish.

Yes, there's a reason why the Bartle Staff is called
"Those Idiots at Iconium"!

6:23 is right. If the girl cannot take a little teasing, maybe she should join a quilting circle. Nobody ever said that trailblazers should have it easy.

She wasn't a volunteer, she was an employee.

Sexual harassment is not a little teasing. Anyone that thinks sexual harassment is justified because 'girls want to be trailblazers' is a sick individual.

Boy scouts is about character building. The scouts and the adults that did nothing should be held responsible. The organization should be set up to teach appropriate behavior, not create the next generation of sexual offenders and bullies.
