I get that they’re trying to keep one kid out, which is bad enough, but that language says my son wouldn’t be welcome in that troop. Hell, I don’t think anyone on Nightly could qualify.

I have a friend on the BSA National Disabilities Awareness Committee. I had her email me a formal, better version with a note that flat-out saying weren't in compliance. 

In the spirit of Zath and Tank sharing Boy Scout memories: I was kicked out of my Boy Scout troop for putting exlax in my Scout Master’s hot chocolate. He had refused to let us retaliate against

I've been trying to respond to this all morning and I'm frustrated as shit. So if Nightly can stop rejecting my post, I'll post my reply.

So what are they so afraid of that they want this kid's parents there at all times? I'm seriously confused. Also, how does this child fall into any of those categories? 

My guess would be it’s more to discourage the parents. “If you do this, you have to do everything!”

I have no idea. I think maybe they're thinking they're setting a new precedent? During our meeting this past weekend, I did repeatedly mention that we can treat any accommodations for a trans scout (requested by the parents) the same way we do accommodations for special needs. 

I seriously don't know wtf. This language wouldn't fly with most of the troop if they saw it. I already put my foot down and told them that this paragraph will not be used and we have to include something more inclusive.

That’s fortunate news. After reading that draft you published here, I mean I’m not a lawyer, but I was like does this even align with the ADA? Is that even applicable? etc. etc. Anyway, it’s good to know someone is helping you. Let’s hear it for friends in high places.

The trans scout decided to join a different troop. 

Sad, but probably the best option for them, rather than joining a troop where they’re not being welcomed.

Is the troop going to shrug it off or are they going to figure out how to be more inclusive from the start so this doesn't happen again?

At this point, I'm looking for any excuse to replace the people who were a problem this time around. I'm also looking for replacements for a few key positions. This won't happen again while we're still here. But we're moving within the year, so I'm doing everything I can to make sure it doesn't happen after then either.

Well things are rolling now. 

I got a phone call from the president of our homeschool association. These bitches tried to oust me and replace me behind my back.

So I called together a meeting of my friends and other people I know aren't happy with current leadership, and now they're calling a meeting of their own with everyone to voice their opinions.

The thing is we're moving this year anyway. Everybody knows this. If they were smart, they would have just waited us out (and I say "us" because most of their complaints seem to be centered around Trevor and his unfiltered mouth this time and not anything I've done necessarily) or approached it like "hey, Christine is interested in being COR next. I know you've got a lot on your plate right now. Would you be interested in starting that transition now and she can help relieve some of that?"

I don't have any objections to having someone else take this position (it needs to happen anyway), and I don't have any objections to the lady they're trying to replace me with. So this was just stupid on their part, because now, I just had to tell everyone what is going on and it's energized people who have been low-key perturbed by current leadership into being royally pissed and ready to fight them. 

Like I predicted from the beginning, they're out to make me the bad guy. They're just not very good at it.

If you don't mind the lady they want to replace you with, maybe reach out to her saying you've heard she's interested and you'd like to start working through a transition? Or is she just a puppet for them? It might throw them off if you're actually supportive? Lol

Found out today that the scoutmaster of our girl troop has been telling the other bitches that Trevor threatened her and that she's now scared to attend campouts and other functions with him there. I just can't even at this point. how high wtf GIF
