  1. The new merit badges seem like a load of newage (rhymes with sewage). “Science of Happiness”? I have a better idea: Girl Scouts should be able to earn all the same merit badges that Boy Scouts can.

    On a related topic: Is there a scouting-like organization that has gone co-ed?

    • Why do you assume that the boy scout badges are so different? Inventor, public policy, website designer – those seem like great badge ideas to me. I think inventor was around back when I was a scout, or at least something like it.

      And why would the Girl Scouts want to be more like the Boy Scouts? They’re two totally separate organizations and the Girl Scouts don’t discriminate.

      • I’ve got to say that I actually thought what @pciszek said when I first saw them too but then I don’t know what requirements the Science of Happiness or Voice for Animals badges would consist of.
        I assume it might be something like a volunteering badge and animal advocacy which, if that’s true, would be better names.

        I agree that the Girl Scouts should want to be less like the Boy Scouts rather than more.

        As for co-ed clubs there’s alway 4H and FFA.
