On the one hand, there’s the customary disdain over the Boy Scouts of America’s newly-minted merit badges (or belt loops, or pins, or whatever) for videogaming prowess.

Take that disdain, re-channel it along gender lines, and you get a new complaint: Why don’t Girl Scouts get a shot at videogame achievements?

Either way, it’s trading jamborees for joysticks. Why commune with nature when you can immerse yourself in a virtual pixelated setting, and get rewarded all the same?
