  • Parents outraged at Cub Scout trip to Black's Beach

    I wish something like this had happened when I was in Cub Scouts. Although I'm sure my mom would have had the same reaction as some of these parents.
    SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - Hiking and scouting go hand in hand, but apparently the scenery one group of Cub Scouts came across during a recent hike was a little too revealing.Some local parents are upset ...

    "I was nauseated because I've never seen just a bunch of nude people walking around holding hands, strange people that I don't know," she said.

    Please--nauseated? Sorry lade, but you have psychological issues. Please get some help.

    That said, the leader should have at least made mention as to his intended path to the others.

      Easy solution ... grab you kid and leave! BUT ... I bet she didn't! I'm inclined to agree with one poster that commented that Blacks is well known for being a nude beach and they had to know where they were going. This woman and any others just played dumb so they could complain afterwards. Black's is a well known nude beach and has been for over 40 years!

        Over-reacting Much?

        Take a douche, lady, and you'll be fine!

          Local radio station had the two morning DJ's, one male, one female, discussing this and regardless of being a nudist and having strong feelings about how our lifestyle is portrayed ... I wanted to reach through the radio and choke the crap outta both of them. I couldn't believe the immaturity and stupidity in which both of them responded to this "story." "ah ... well, ah ... I guess ahhh, those kids got a lesson on "nature" ... ahhh, they went on a ... ahhh, nature hike and got more than they ... ahhh, ahhhh ... bargained for ..." They silly, 10 year old comments ... you'd expect more of an adult but nudity, the subject of nudity, a story about nudity ... brings out the nauseating comedian in many people.

          What a couple of nitwits! Thankfully my wife hit the button and changed the radio station but not before saying .... "Idiots!"

            I watched a report about this incident and the comments were more down to earth. Although the commentators didn't support the nudists, they didn't condemn them either. They just reported how the leader took them in the wrong direction and they spotted the nudists. Apparently they changed direction before everyone got a view.

              Been thinking about this for a few days. Here's what comes to mind...

              40 years ago all the boys would have just gone swimming without thinking about it and the troop leaders would have led the way. Now, the scouts outright condemn the notion of a troop skinny dipping as part of an outing. There was a time when scouting was about men teaching boys how to become men and there was nothing to fear about the nude body in a wholesome activity like swimming at the local swimming hole. We have now "evolved" beyond the notion that men have that primary responsibility and now have a system where many believe it is better to let kids just figure out who they want to be without any predefined sense of normalcy. There are many factors for this, chief among them the decline of the traditional family. As a result, parents get criticized for trying to provide a sense of their values that come across as prejudiced against the choices that others make.

              While I don't think it's appropriate for a group like the scouts to take kids someplace that parents aren't aware of, I see no issue with taking a group of scouts to a public place like this beach with parental consent. While I understand the mother's reaction to the people at the beach, I think her response about going someplace unanticipated is warranted.

              Just my 2 cents...

                Local troop, local parents; everyone in San Diego county knows about Black's Beach. She wasn't blindsided. If she says she didn't know about Black's ... she's lying ... pure and simple.

                  Who knows, maybe she is new to the area and never heard of it. I dunno, but yes, it does sound strange she never heard of Blacks Beach, especially "if" she has been in the area for any length of time.

                    Maybe they'll now yell and scream "we have to send our kids to counseling now...." - (i'm joking, I'm joking....)

                    There is a nudist park in Maryland - Pine Tree Associates. It's in a remote, rural area, in the town of Crownsville. One of their neighbors is a state mental hospital. Another "neighbor" is a television transmitter site. And ... there is a big Boy Scout camp - right across the street.

                    They've managed to co-exist for decades, and there is no doubt that occasionally a "field hike" from the Scout camp, "accidentally" wandered onto the Pine Tree grounds. So I was told.

                    Not that the Scouts ever complained.

                      1985 at the Rainbow gathering in the Mark Twain National Forest. Somehow I was chosen to lead a group of Eagle Scouts on a tour of the camp to see the sanitation and fresh water systems supporting the community of 10, 000. I did not have any warning so I led the group through out the camp wearing only hiking boots. Not a problem for anyone involved.

                            It's also possible she is very dimwitted, or a member of Congress.
