I think co-ed groups are very important…as are different groups coming together, for shared events…
…But, I have to agree with the sentiment being voiced here…Groups tailored to boys, or tailored to girls, should remain an available option.
Different groups should be available, for those kids who feel they don’t fit into the classic groups of Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts.
There is something really bad, about losing the dynamics of an “all male” group like the Boy Scouts.
It’s interesting that the Boy Scouts of America accepting girls, has caused a rift with the Girl Scouts of America.
It makes sense, though.

Thank you, to feinmann0.
“From a 2018 report by Terre des Hommes, a Dutch charity that campaigns for children’s rights. “A recent study shows that 45 per cent of commercial sexual exploitation of children victims in the Kenyan coastal regions had migrated from upcountry to engage in commercial sex work. It is estimated that in the coastal town of Mtwapa alone, between 10,000 and 20,000 children are trafficked annually for the purpose of sex tourism.”
The above quote by the Dutch charity was broadcast by citizen TV, Kenya. The allafrica link describes how AfricaCheck, an African fact-checking organisation based in Johannesburg, uncovered falsified statistics used in children’s charity reports to highlight a massive problem that in reality never existed.”
I skimmed over this, very quickly…and will go over it, later…
Of course…the reality of these “crimes”, is that many of these children and teens are very enthusiastic participants…
A few years back, there was a report about this in the Philippines…where the parents, themselves, were setting things up…and letting their children have the time of their lives with each other in front of a live camera…and the kids loved it.
…It was a literal, cottage family business…It sustained their lives…and the kids were being harmed in no way.
Cases of kids and families moving to different jurisdictions, in order to get away from draconian laws and do this sort of thing, are not unheard of.
Of course…sad thing about that documentary…is that you had the activist “social worker”, who had to weasel in and convince these children as to “why they were being abused”…
