    offending the daily mail

    I see TSA have managed to offend the Daily Mail again this time by having guidance for leaders with transsexual members in their section.

    Keep it up everybody!

    I am genuinely of the opinion that if it offends the mail and it's readers it can only be a good thing

    Can't find this story, but did find a good story about first Buddhist Scout group in uk in the Guardian.

    A lot of Mail readers support scouting we should avoiding stero typing them as much as we should any other section of society.

    Can't see how anything in the article is new or not basic common sense...

    I suspect the story is without merit, I can't find a trace of it on the TSA website. You should address everybody in the manner in which they identify not blanking out boys and girls with something that means nothing to them.

    We seem to have lost three years of history as well.
    The Roman Empire did not become great by holding meetings. It did so by killing everyone that opposed their point of view.

    So, probably correct. Although I won't read a daily mail link to see what they said.

    Here is the guidance - http://members.scouts.org.uk/support...78&moduleID=10

    I read it as guidelines to be used if you have someone that does not identify as either a male or female within your Group. The DM is misleading here in suggesting it is a blanket ‘rule’.

    Hmm. The Daily Mail or Der Stürmer. So hard to tell the difference.

    Eh?

    I think it's policy in sexualising little children is appalling.

    I don't get my kicks from seeing the 13 year old daughter of a famous actress looking all grown up now. I made a decision a few years ago not to go to the daily mail website and it has served me well.

    "The Daily Mail Song" tells you all you need to know about that particular nasty, inflammatory rag and its nasty, inflammatory website.

    On a lighter note, did anyone see the Scouts working on The Cleveland Way on Countryfile last night? Mind you, the badge policeman within me was all of a quiver...

    let's look at the google summaries... not the actual links...

    these are links to images of grils "all grown up..." and we see girls who are

    examples "She's all grown up! Maddie Ziegler, 14, is transformed into a 1960s sensation, modeling a funky blonde wig and very dramatic eyeliner for stunning shoot. The dancer sported a blonde wig and let her brown locks flow during the photo session with hair news website Mane Addicts; In one of the shots, ..."
    "
    Reese Witherspoon's mini-me daughter Ava looks all grown up in a... 17 Jan 2016 - The beautiful blonde teenager, who is growing up fast, was all smiles as her date for the evening wrapped his arm around her waist in a snap she posted on social media on Friday evening."

    "The 16-year-old actress, who first rose to fame when she appeared alongside Keira Knightley in 2007's Atonement, was all grown-up last night as she attended the premiere of her new movie The Way Back alongside Colin Farrell and Ed Harris"

    No... this is not right. If a scout leader talked about a scout or explorer in these terms, he'd be out on his ear... there's no way i'm infecting my life with this filth

    Thankfully it's now safe for us to buy our Christmas cards from Paperchase, as they've apologised for advertising in the DM.

    Anyone over 16 is old enough to dress how they like, and be photographed if they want; in Scotland, they can even vote. Before that age, it's down to the parents to protect them, and I can see the point about a newspaper not printing pictures of a girl looking pretty.
