Thumbs down Boy Scouts Drop Name, Girls Accepted In 2019

This is so sad. There's nothing wrong with having separate Boy Scout and Girl Scout organizations, but the left wants to eliminate the whole concept of gender.

Quote:
After 108 very honorable years, the institution known as the Boy Scouts program “is set to drop the gender from its name and re-emerge as ‘Scouts BSA.'” This is being done to be more “inclusive” and to invite females into the fold. As political analyst Julie Borowski has tweeted, this move “barges” in on “boy spaces that are desperately needed” in the emasculating culture.

As traditions and the experience of camping with the Scouts is to change, Chief Scout Executive Mike Surbaugh said that an “incredibly fun” discussion was held prior to the decision.

Taking an almost painfully lackadaisical approach to the topic, he said, “We wanted to land on something that evokes the past but also conveys the inclusive nature of the program going forward. We’re trying to find the right way to say we’re here for both young men and young women.”

Even in the post-modern PC world that is 2018, why could “The Girl Scouts,” The Boy Scouts,” and a third option, “The Scouts” have existed?

The Boys Scouts of America (the parent organization) and the Cub Scouts will keep their name, but the other change is expected to appear in February. However, the Cub Scouts for 7-10-year-olds has already begun taking girls.

“The 11- to 17-year-olds who join Scouts BSA will likely start referring to themselves as scouts without a gender modifier,” admitted Surbaugh. Since leadership roles could be affected, both boys and girls will have separate units still, so basically, this is about placating the far left and the political mindset of the times.

The Girl Scouts were said to have been “blindsided by the move and are planning an aggressive campaign to ramp up recruitment numbers.” It is same to say that most of America was equally “blindsided” by the foolish move. “Girl Scouts is the premier leadership development organization for girls,” stated Sylvia Acevedo, the Girl Scouts’ CEO.

Pubescent boys and girls, hormones raging, camping in the woods together without their parents.

What could possibly go wrong?

Lumara,, I don't get it either.

This could be the final nail in the coffin of the Boy Scouts. Most families that I know encourage their kids to join the scouts based on their faith based agenda. But by bowing to the militant PC warriors, they have alienated those of us that viewed the BSA in a positive light. I for one will discourage anyone to allow their young men to join this once great and proud organization. I know many others will do the same.

Because girls can be Eagle Scouts now?

Someone explain why some on the right have lost their collective sh-t over the idea over girls being able to join (more parts of) the BSA. The BSA does cool stuff, has great camps, facilities, traditions, etc. I don't think there's anything wrong with a more gender neutral/inclusive Scouting organization. It's that way in virtually every other country with a scouting program, it's not that weird. And even the highly biased article from the OP had to admit that the cub packs and scout troops can still be exclusive boy or girl.

Also Venture Scouts were already co-ed before this.

You guys are overreacting.

The power of the snowball is indeed remarkable. It causes people to follow P-C weenies.

Because it was, and always has been, the BOY scouts of America.

And yes, they will be camping together. Bet on it.

I ran a co-ed teenage summer camp back in the 60's with cabins. Over 100 kids together for 30 days, they made relationships. One counselor male and female kept night watch.

Although attempts were frequent and intense, no babies were made.

That was back in Father knows best era,,,; Before Madonna and abortion on demand. To suggest co-mingling won't happen in today's environment is ridiculous.

This yet another arrow by the left in an attempt to destroy masculinity and to destroy the fact that there are 2 genders. Anything to promote the notion that boys and girls are the same.

We already have co-ed in Venture Scouting. Parents used to have a choice about how their kids were raised.

Now the state insists on not just participating but making absolute and final decisions.

One more little freedom lost.

Over time, they add up.

RIP, Boy Scouts.
