Male chauvenism really pisses me off!!!

It's not often that I get really fired up on a subject. I'm not into politics or debates. Heck, I don't even watch the news. And I'm just not accustom to people who are so idiotically stupid. Yet, somehow I manage to find myself in the situation of being fired up over something as stupid as male chauvenism.

Now, I know Boy Scouts is called "Boy Scouts", meaning that it is for boys. I get that. No problem. But when I'm told that I'm not welcome at camp because I'm a MOM ... that's where you get me fired up. Give me a break!

I dare not say more, as I'm trying to deal with it in a calm and concise manor. But if tomorrow's meeting does not go well I'm sure I'll have MUCH more to say!

GRRRRRRR ....

So...a single parent with no male presence in the home would be discriminated against...because she wants to be sure her boy is getting the best?

And geez Louise...they have DEN MOTHERS don't they? And I've seen WAY too many pack leaders that are women...MOTHERS.

You SHOULD be allowed to attend...
