discriminate Your not from our neighborhood, from the wrong class, too old, too young, wrong school, too tall you cannot join our troop. BTW your dad cannot start a troop because, well, he is a man. Best soup nazi voice, NO GIRLSCOUTS FOR YOU
Incorrect... Councils make the ultimate decision but nationally, men can be leaders. There just has to be a female (unrelated) adult also with the troop, as well. All troop activities require at least two adults.
Many troops are not "location based." My troop has girls from all 5 schools in town, and 2 from other towns.
And, since this is a Boy Scout forum, I will refrain from discussing discrimination on that end...

Utah State House Rep. Steve Eliason, R-Sandy, sponsor of the tax break measure and a scoutmaster in Boy Scouts, vowed to try to revive it later by amending his bill to also benefit the Girl Scouts and possibly other youth groups.
Eliason already passed his bill through the House, but said in debate there only that any youth group meeting criteria in his bill would split money donated to a new "Youth Development Organization" fund. Taxpayers could check a box on forms to donate any amount they wish to it.
But the bill would only give to youth groups that have at least 180,000 members in the state -- which happens to be how many Boy Scouts are in traditional units in Utah, according to information Scout councils provided to The Tribune in 2011. Girl Scouts membership is about 6,000.
Boy Scouts are the largest youth group in the state by far, with most Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints' congregations sponsoring units.
After the earlier House vote, Eliason acknowledged that his bill was designed so that the fund would benefit only the Boy Scouts -- and news stories about that appeared..."
But the Girl Scouts showed up Tuesday to fight the bill as it appeared before the Senate Revenue and Taxation Committee. Tuesday also happened to be "Girl Scout Day" at the Legislature, when young Girl Scouts distributed boxes of cookies to lawmakers.
