Queer Scouts!

What exactly about going co-ed makes them 'queer'?

queer
adj.   Deviating from the expected or normal; strange: a queer situation.
adj.   Odd or unconventional, as in behavior; eccentric.
adj.   Of a questionable nature or character; suspicious.

Oh, you know what you meant.

It's weird how some are insinuating that being around girls will make boys gay.

My guess is that they're assuming that the only girls who would want to be in a co-ed Scout troop are emasculating lesbians-in-training.
Christ my God, set my heart on fire with love in You, that in its flame I may love You with all my heart, with all my mind, and with all my soul and with all my strength, and my neighbor as myself, so that by keeping Your commandments I may glorify You the Giver of every good and perfect gift. Amen.

Or my daughter, who at nine is intensely girly (she already spends a bunch of time picking out what she thinks is the cutest outfit and styling her hair better than a lot of adults) but is also really into things like building campfires and forts.
Blessed Nazarius practiced the ascetic life. His clothes were tattered. He wore his shoes without removing them for six years.

Take a breath, read Ecclesiastes 1:9.

Hooray...


If anyone wants information about an alternative scouting group due to the loss of control of Boy Scouts, there exists "Trail Life USA"

https://www.traillifeusa.com/
What? I thought it would be called the "Gender fluid non-conforming LGBTQ Black feminist scouts of America"!

The official name is "Scouts BSA."

Trail Life USA is a splinter group that wants to be a sort of conservative spiritual successor to Boy Scouts.

Just in case there is some kind of confusion.
No the official name of the organization remains Boy Scouts of America.  The program for 11-17 year olds has been renamed Scouts BSA since they will allow all-girl Troops to form in Feb 2019.  The 14-20 year olds program called Venturing was already Coed.  It really isn’t that big of deal.  The program isn’t being changed girls are simply being allowed to use it.

Shhhh! You're ruining the narrative!

If that’s what it means to be gay, I want to be gay.  Supergay.

You kidding? Rachel's a total Hagosaurus, God bless her. This is probably Mor's best chance.

Everyone should practice gaiety with some co-ed camping.  ;D
Is any of the above Orthodox?  I have no clue, so there's that.
