Boy Scouts Will Allow Girls In Latest Effort To Destroy Male Spaces

Via LA Times:

he Boy Scouts of America announced on Wednesday that it will admit girls into the Cub Scouts starting next year and establish a new program for older girls using the organization’s same curriculum.

In the historic move, Cub Scout dens — the smallest unit — will be single-gender, either all boys or all girls. Cub Scout packs, which are larger and include a number of dens, will have the option to welcome both genders if they choose.

The Boy Scouts’ board of directors voted unanimously for the change on Wednesday.

“This decision is true to the BSA’s mission and core values outlined in the Scout Oath and Law. The values of Scouting — trustworthy, loyal, helpful, kind, brave and reverent, for example — are important for both young men and women,” Michael Surbaugh, the group’s chief executive, said in a statement.

He added that “we believe it is critical to evolve how our programs meet the needs of families interested in positive and lifelong experiences for their children. We strive to bring what our organization does best — developing character and leadership for young people — to as many families and youth as possible as we help shape the next generation of leaders.”

The program for older girls is expected to start in 2019 and will enable girls to earn the coveted rank of Eagle Scout.

In a statement, the group said that after “years of receiving requests from families and girls,” it “evaluated the results of numerous research efforts” and came to its decision.

The Girl Scouts of America, which is separate and independent of the Boy Scouts, has been the primary scouting alternative for girls, and claims a membership of 1.8 million.

Recently, the Boy Scouts announced that it will allow transgender children who identify as boys to enroll in its boys-only programs.

  1. Having been a Girl guide myself, i can tell that growing up wanted to join the boy scouts not because they were “boys” or anything but because they did funner and cooler trips, they had medals and badges that meant something. I think they should make girl scouts and girl guides a more fun and cool thing to do because children do not know gender and they are not sexually attracted to anyone yet. All they know is being kids and having fun. So that’s just it let kids be kids

  2. The girl scouts main objective is to sell cookies and brings the money back into the organization. The boy scouts learn essential life skills.
