No pictures? Amazing what people take on faith when nobody wants to see what is being discussed.
Can someone fill the rest of us in?
At some point in the first half, there was a camera shot of the Gator band. In front were a group of students with pom-poms, including a male. This would have either been the Gatorettes, which are the baton-twirling majorettes, or the color guard, which are flag twirlers who also march with the band during pre-game and halftime. My guess is that it was the color guard. It's pretty common to have males among the color guard.
He got a purty mouth.
The girl in the middle looks just like Tracy Morgan
I think that's just a normal LSU coed.
This is indeed a very strange world we are living in
I am of traditional values and this is outside of my wheelhouse.
Unsuccessfully looked for a photo.
I don't know , but I thought the pom-pom squad was different than the flag corp. Dude was in the group of girls in front of the band in the stadium. The camera shot during the game was brief and they didn't mention it, but my wife says "was that a guy?", backed it up and sure as shit, there was a dude (not good looking either) in the middle of the good looking girls. .
Not "revamping", but revamped. Damn BSA! They don't even call themselves "Boy Scouts of America" anymore and it's all about the almighty $. Membership has been on a downward trend and coupled with their settlement payouts, they decided that they needed to open membership to anyone will to pay their dues. Gays, females, doesn't matter. Girls Scouts sued, but I don't know that has ran it's course, but GSs have it right, no boys. Boys and girls don't mix, especially on camp-outs.
My son just submitted his paperwork for his Eagle Scout, so he'll get his rank before the total collapse, which many in scouting believe is only a matter of time. Fortunately, they've allowed the local Troop to decide whether or not to accept females, which it was an unanimous "No" vote.
The year before my son joined the troop, they went on a summer camp to N. Georgia that had other groups than just scouts. The bunk house they were in included a co-ed church group with a girl that was doing a train with her group in the middle of the night.
Can he kick ?
You are correct that all those changes were because of the 'almighty $' - but you have to look at the context as to why all the changes. BSA national was pressured into making all those changes from Presidential administrations - because BSA has always been Non-Profit - so they get a lot of Federal money and waivers from the Fed - especially for all the land they utilize in their national site/reservations (Philmont, SeaBase, Northern Tier, and the newer enormous place up in West. Va.) - if BSA didn't comply with these newer 'Social' acceptance policies - they would then have had their Non-Profit status revoked and lose all that land/sites
A HS friend of mine was a cheerleader at Mizzou.
He summed it up: I get to be on the sideline with some of the happiest, most flexible girls at the university. I get to hold them over my head. I get to catch them by supporting their butt when they drop down. It’s every frat guys dream.
The current issues with the Boy Scouts of America may include a lot of what you talk about, but it began with decades of molestation of thousands of kids and covering it up. The $850 million dollar settlement and ruined lives is a hell of a lot more troubling and relevant than some dude who chooses to waive pom poms at a game is all I was saying.
Your values are your values. His values are his. You don’t get to dictate his and according to the Bible shouldn’t be judging him. What wrongdoing is being done? By values do you mean not acting like you’ve been programmed to act? To be offended is a choice and you’ve made an odd one.
Also if you feel as though something is outside of your wheelhouse you’re probably better served not commenting at all. There are many things I don’t comment on because I’m not informed enough or objective enough to.
The issue here is your own individual hang ups as what you’ve been conditioned to think a “man should be.” Let people enjoy their life and have fun so long as they aren’t hurting anyone else. There are no sins being committed here.
Sounds like you're the one with the problem.
Yet somehow we're the strange ones ...
Seems like progress to me........
No one has commented on whether he is white, black,
orange, or some other color.
This thread is worthless WITH pictures.
Actually, they seem intrigued lol
I’m totally cool with everyone doing their own thing.
Probably like a girl. (runs and hides........)
