WTF Boy Scouts of America?!?!
Boy Scouts of America has banned fat kids from attending the national jamboree. Because I guess they need somebody to discriminate against.
I was a Scout in Canada. One of my good friends growing up was also a Scout — and he easily had a BMI over 40. He hiked, biked, climbed, rappelled and did everything else that I did (I was really fit at the time).
Just think of the pain when you tell a kid, sorry — you’re too fat to go to the Jamboree. Is he going to lose the weight then? No! He’s going to be embarrassed, drop out of Scouts and be a lot less active as a result.
And really, who is this guy to be judging?
