These are not the "chubby" kids - they are only looking for those who are VERY obese. This is a very active place, lots of hilly hiking, and other adventure activities. Not someone someone VERY obese would even be able to do.
Not really "news" either.
The kids do not meet the very clear and posted requirements, end of story.
Liability but also 40% bmi is A LOT that's. That is considered class 3 which is very severely obese. I see no problem with them not allowing a child to participate when it can hurt that child.
I think the concept was good in giving them a goal to become healthy.
Discrimination is okay for overweight scouts but not gay ones. Got it. No double standard there at all.
