I am absolutly dreading tonight. It will (hopefully) be my last as the Committee Chair. I wish that I didn't care what other people thought of me but I do. We have two wards combined to make our pack because the primaries are tiny. Anyway, I get along great with the Primary presidency in my ward but the two women in the other one piss me off. They are controlling, condescending, and a pain in the arse. I'm sure they won't say anything about my nose ring (none of the other TBM's have). I feel really defensive and anxious. Advice?

Beats me - I've got to go to one too tonight but we have three wards. I'm only going to see my friend's son graduate though - I don't have a calling in Scouts any more. Cubs was my last calling before I quit going to church entirely.
I'd say avoid the women you can't stand - the nice thing about cubs is that you can keep moving. Good luck.
It is probably all over now, but I had the same nose ring paranoia. I've gotten over it. If they say anything, "Oh is that a nose ring?" I guess you could say something like "Yeah, I also pierced my nipples. Anything else you want to comment on?" I'm sure their jaws would just drop. You may also be able to ensure that you never are asked to help with another mormon scouting event again!
