I have read your comment on the topic of transgender children being allowed into either girl/boy scouts and I have to disagree with you. "In an area where one gender naturally excels and the other gender may be less proficient, the standards would have to drop to accommodate those falling behind." In this one sentence your are completely denouncing gender equality, it does not matter if a human being is biologically male or female, they are both capable of doing something outside of societies "gender norms". In fact your argument enforces the outdated ideals that men are incapable of doing what females do and vice versa. A biologically female child that identifies as a boy can go hiking with the other boy scouts, just as a biologically male child that identifies as a girl can sell cookies with the other girl guides.
