The Boy Scouts to allow girls to join.
http://www.cnn.com/2017/10/11/us/boy-sco...index.html

Quote:The Boy Scouts of America's board of directors has unanimously agreed to welcome girls into the Cub Scout program and to forge a path for older girls to pursue and earn the highest rank of Eagle Scout, the organization said Wednesday.

"The historic decision comes after years of receiving requests from families and girls," Boy Scouts of America said in a statement. "[T]he organization evaluated the results of numerous research efforts, gaining input from current members and leaders, as well as parents and girls who've never been involved in Scouting -- to understand how to offer families an important additional choice in meeting the character development needs of all their children."

Well they are starting with Cub Scouts... so they're still young enough to not be teens... but this is still going to be an issue. Will they kick girls out if they get old enough?

I wonder how the left who will be celebrating this would feel about boys joining the Girl Scouts and being involved in sleepovers.

Wait a second. Don't they have the Girl Scouts? Isn't that a tomboyish thing for a girl to do?

Allowing gay boy scout leaders has caused membership to drop dramatically. This is a hail mary to try and save the organization. It will probably be the nail in the coffin.

RE: The Boy Scouts to allow girls to join.
It was my understanding that the GSA was going to start modeling itself more like the BSA and giving girls more leadership skills, making its highest honor equal to that of an Eagle Scout. Im really surprised that the BSA went down this rabbit hole.

I usually make a large donation and volunteer annually to help with BSA projects. I was very close to ending my support after the last gay scout fiasco. I now will end my support with this stupidity.

Not one bit, which I find somewhat ironic on one hand and completely understandable on the other. I'm waiting on some feminists to weigh in.

So does this mean boys can join the girl scouts? Will the boy scouts now be selling cookies?
