As an Eagle Scout myself, I agree with Tailfeathers. I learned lessons in Scouts (both philosophical and practical) that I will carry forever. I believe that admitting girls will water down the experience. There is a time and place for teenage boys to be around and learn about teenage girls, but the Boy Scouts is not one of those places. Gonna be a huge distraction. Also agree with tcc, if the Girl Scout curriculum is lacking (and this is the true motive behind this, and not just another PC conquest), then simply improve the GS curriculum.
