I think we also need to spend money to interest the boys in reading.

Because the problem the boys face in reading is much worse than the problem the girls face in SMET.

But in the tradition of sexist feminism that is now rampant and toxic in the US and which should alarm the mother of any K12 boy...

We are only interested in helping the boys [portion removed.]

When will the sexism against boys end?

'We' aren't spending any money on this. In case you haven't read the article, it's a Girl Scout troop, not a school.

How are these girls doing anything to hurt boys' reading abilities? You are airing grievances on a totally unrelated topic here. Don't bash other people's hard work.

You may perceive 'sexism against boys', but sexism against girls is prevalent and well-documented today. Can we just denounce sexism everywhere, instead of putting down either gender to 'help' the other?

You say think of the boys; don't forget the girls in the process.
