Before I go any further, I think the Scouts are basically a good thing. But I'm not so sure about this recruitment poster for them:
Is that actually a thing people say about the Scouts? That they all look the same? 'Oh, I was thinking of joining the Scouts, but I don't like the way they all look the same. Because if I don't look the way they all look, I might not fit in; but on the other hand if the way it works is that as soon as you're invested your face morphs to take on the standard Scout look, my parents might get confused, and pick up the wrong Scout from the milling hordes of identical Scouts outside the Scout hut.' No, I don't think it is, and I don't think the Scout Association should just make up things they pretend people think to debunk: 'Brownies are all allergic to feathers? Think again!' 'Cubs are all two foot tall with square heads and feet made of glass? Think again!'
Except, obviously, I know what this poster is really getting at. And to be honest, I think they should have the courage to come out and say it explicitly:
'All Scouts look the same? Think again! This one's black!'
