I'm not sure that I see the freedom of association parallel between
the Boy Scouts and the ACLU. The Scouts are trying to exclude a
group entirely, which raises the association issue. A group with
quotas for offices seems to raise the association issue only obliquely.
Say the ACLU has quotas for women officers, but lets any man
join and a good number of them be officers. How is there a
freedom of association argument? They've chosen to associate
freely with men.
