  •  Girl Scouts can hike, canoe trip, kayak, whatver. (7+ / 0-)

    Why do girls need to join the boy scouts anyway?  It seems to me that this assumption de-values women: only by joining guy groups can girls have cool outdoors adventures.  Sure, many girl scout troops are sissy, but we found a really good high adventure girl scout troop in our city.  I have run into other troops kayaking in the Apostle Islands. If you don't have one in your city, start one. The assumption that it's only cool if it's part of a guy group is exactly why we need more high adventure girl scout troops.  We need to break that stereotype, especially in the mindset of the girls themselves.
