Comments: Sometimes I feel like I'm in a "From Stress to Success" interest project

I am so fucking disgusted! Just to begin with, Girl Scouts are going to, what, be *corrupted* by having their "awards" reflect MERIT instead of INTEREST?

"Here, cutie, we're awarding you this positively adorable little scrap of fabric based on your interest, rather than your mastery." (Oops, should that maybe be "mistressry"?) "Now run along and Build a Better Future by Understanding Yourself and Others, you hear?"

They keep redesigning Girl Scouts. Apparently for Girl Scouts to be an appealing activity, it must be cutesy. I'm not even sure what "2B Studio" activities are... but they earn you charms. In Middle and High School. And... yeah. THe whole thing's quickly becoming unrecognizable, even for someone who finished a mere 6 and a half years ago [though cheesy "interest project" names *do* date back that far].

I would think that if a young girl were planning to develop mistressry over something or someone, "Paddle, Pole, and Roll" would be a darned fine interest to have.

I'm just sayin'
