Boy Scouts Are Now Allowing Girls To Join

(Daily Caller News Foundation) The Boy Scouts of America (BSA) will now allow girls to join their well known cub scout program which will enable them to advance to the highest rank of Eagle Scout, according to a statement released Wednesday.

The organization’s board of directors voted unanimously to make the historic change to the group that has been for boys since its founding over 100 years ago.

“Today, the Boy Scouts of America Board of Directors unanimously approved to welcome girls into its iconic Cub Scout program and to deliver a Scouting program for older girls that will enable them to advance and earn the highest rank of Eagle Scout,” the group said in a statement 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,” said the BSA’s Chief Scout Executive, Michael Surbaugh.

“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,” he continued.

Starting in 2018, young girls will be able to join cub scout units. The historic decision reportedly comes after years of receiving requests from families and girls.

    I don’t get this? Why does a “girl” want to join “boy” scouts?
    There is a GIRL scouts …..join them ! Very similar programs
    I was a brownie to a senior girl scout and It’s a fabulous program …
    It’s puzzling to me.

    • Naval Lint

      Well, I can understand this, somewhat. Back in “the day”, Boy Scouts went camping and such but the Girl Scouts didn’t do many of the same things. Not sure if this is a positive thing or not.

      • romzims

        Girl Scouts also had camping trips way back ..I was one of
        them….any parent that would want their daughter in Boy Scouts instead of Girl Scouts is part of the problem of demoralizing our country..just asking for problems here..sit back and watch.

          Exactly, just look at the liberals social experiment with our Military allowing any Pervert in no matter what gender they say they are.

          • taliesin319

            What happens when Jane is placed in the tent with Harriet, formerly known as Harry. Mother nature sees two kids in skivies and decided hey, guess I ‘ll get busy. Jane is now 6 months pregnant and mom is furious. Mom, a Progressive thought it was a great arrangement. Harriet’s mom also Progressive wants Jane to be charged with rape. See what happens when you start changing pronouns ? The Supreme Court decides you cannot sue Mother Nature. Chief Justice says you can put her in jail.

            Jane’s Mom doesn’t mind, she’s on welfare and each baby brings tens of thousand$s more dollars in…

          • jim_shipley

            Look how great it worked in the military where there is an illegitimate birth every three minutes and we pay for them for at least 18 years and the mothers serve no purpose in the military, can’t be deployed.

        • Naval Lint

          It started going downhill when the BSA was FORCED to accept bents as scouts AND scout LEADERS! SHM…..

      • Robert Thaler

        They were preparing to become wives, what else has the world been doing for the last two Thousand years? Someone has to be the head of the family, but abandoning our roles is the main cause of marriage break up.

    • pemaddin

      Are the boys now going to join the Girl Scouts, is the Congressional Black Caucus now allowing White members. This ridiculous pc correctness has got to go.

      • taliesin319

        The boys have been joining the Girl Scouts for at least 2 years. Of course they ,DEEM themselves girls. Why the mothers of the real girls put up with this is because for a while GSUSA was the only game is town. Now there is an alternative and those who left the Girl Scouts, and many have gone to the alternate.I think its called American Heritage Girls, but I’m not sure. There is an alternate for Boy Scouts as well. In the original organizations they accept presumeably all 57 genders . Their jamboree must look like chaos.

      • Robert Thaler

        I guess when men start to wear dresses and that doesn’t seem far off with all those silky nylon so called sport’s shorts that are now fashionable. Cashiers salute me and my wife now by,”How are you guys? why do I feel out of line when I respond,” My wife is a Gal ! It wont be long before we are saluted as gals.

    • Julie Adams

      Was there an equivalent “Eagle Scout” type program? This is supposedly the reason for it but my solution would be to keep boys and girls separate and make an equivalent program for the girls. This is SO destructive!

    • Buzz Waldron

      Scouts is dying…

      Because their sick, progressive liberal parents are experimenting with their child’s life. They probably work in Nancy Pilosi’s office. They are probably both women and the child is the result of a turkey-baster insemination.

  • wayne g dearry

    This will be a huge mistake–Girls will be a distraction for the boys–Girl scouts don’t bring in enough money so its the main reason to join.

    • Norman Fox

      If the girls can be Boy Scouts then boys should be able to become Girl Scouts.

      • Gregg Parker

        I feel certain they woukd agree with you… more gender bending is what it has been about for a long time…

      • Ricarrdo estavans

        It can be done via a surgical procedure.

    • Gregg Parker

      When they let h0mo ped0philes in as scout masters it’s only fair then that they let v!ctims in for the straight ped0philes!

    • 70sBoltsfan

      Some say there are no Girl Scouts in some areas, only Boy Scouts. I have no issues with the concept. There are more pressing issues to worry about, but I can see the liberalization of our universities, schools and culture permeating Western Democracies. Conservative free speech is being branded across campuses as being hate speech. Perhaps one day western democracies will be forced onto Islam as they have no tolerance for this behavior. Sharia Law will perhaps one day permeate the world and democracies will be dead. Islam is the fastest growing religion in the world. Be careful what you ask for liberals.

  • 27633171

    This is simply a result of the continuing war to feminize America. It has been going on for years and the attacks on anything male will never stop. These people have infiltrated every aspect of American society and masked their intent of demoralizing the country with a cloak of ” Equality “. You can rest assured that the people behind this are the same ones that have been instrumental in promoting homosexuality and lesbianism and transgenderism as an acceptable lifestyle. It appears that the Boy Scouts has succumbed to these groups and no longer serves the purpose for which it was intended. Good Bye Boy Scouts and Hello to Gender Free Scouts of America.

    • Alibaba

      Wrong! Let them run this one! At least will be some girls learning early that there are boys and girls for a reason, and when they will became men and women, those girls will became worthy women, already knowing how to respect a man, because they learn the differences at an early age. They will learn that man and woman were not created to compete but to complete each other!

    • Buzz Waldron

      As evil religion dies out, religion-backed boy/girl scouts also dying out… so they’re desperate enough for new members that they’ll accept all 57 sexes…
      Put your kids into Explorers or Space Camp… or anything else sensible… and with no written orders to hate, hurt, and murder everyone on the planet like all religions have…
      .

      • Frank Redmond

        You do realize that Explorers are a coed group of the Boy Scouts. Explorer Scouts is for youth age 16-21, allowing them to “explore” potential career paths. I belonged to a High Adventure Post that was set up at my church for those boys and girls that wanted to get out, enjoy wilderness camping, canoeing, backpacking. Most Explorer Posts are geared with specific careers in mind, like being a First Responder or law enforcement.

        The BSA has been allowing girls in for quite a while anyway.

        • Robert Thaler

          When a gal takes a look at her body she might want to explore motherhood, now a lost cause for most,. Our culture today is pure communist (Atheistic) propaganda and most have fallen for it.

          • steve

            yup. barefoot in the kitchen. that’s how women are supposed to be.

          • Robert Thaler

            No they are not supposed to be barefoot in the kitchen if the husbands really loved their wives they would take care of them. It’s obvious that you do not know the meaning of “husband” so go look it up. Aren’t you glad you had a mother who took care of you (her most valuable possession) and didn’t send you to a “day care center”? Did you have any brothers or sisters which constitutes a family? I feel sorry for you. If you are a “Christian” why do you ignore scripture? Or even natural law, could be you’re not

          • steve

            actually, the only reason my mother didn’t fulfill her goals of making it as far as she did in her career in the clothing industry(she had been making and designing clothes since she was young, and made tons of dresses and other clothes for herself and friends in high school, made her own wedding dress, etc.) and had to be a stay at home mother, was because she had horrific medical problems(trigeminal neuralgia, TMJ, burning mouth syndrome, migraines, severe sciatica from a childhood tailbone injury, etc.)
            it was her passion, and I don’t think it’s for you to deny other people their own free will and desire, simply because your personal views/holy text dictate she should stay at home and have babies while her husband works and takes care of her(yes, a husband should take care of his wife, and a wife should take care of her husband.)
            not only that, imagine the cost on the economy if all women listened to you? only half of adults even having the POTENTIAL to enter the workforce?
            what about all the “traditionally female” jobs like nurses, waitresses, secretaries, etc.? I actually wouldn’t be surprised if you were also the type of guy to criticize men who have those kinds of jobs.
            or is it only single women who should work? or wait, should there be no single women?

          • Robert Thaler

            Back in the fifties this country was an economic wonder without women in the work force, they were at home tending the large families they had rightfully and responsibly. Now with over 50 % women in the work force we are 20 trillion in debt, and poverty due to children with only one or less parent and only love comes from gangs. America has a new found femininity that has no future. All hopping on the new fashionableTsunami wave that is sure to hit land
            We can’t help where or when or who our parents are or what rotten conditions we are left with, but we must deal with it.al and we must pray for help and He will help: there is no other hope. He will not abandon a trusting soul.
            Traditional female jobs were by the single women who had no husband to support them. These types of jobs were not political nor were they showing power or authority over men as they try to do today. Lets face it women are not men and never will be so why not just give up the act and put your dresses back on and behave like a lady and we will try to behave like a man.
            If there is no God nothing really matters.

            Thanks to the government, which is still staffed by the Obama administration’s seeding of the the public sector ranks. And, academia, who is staffed entirely by these wackos, who clone themselves in the minds of their students. And, of course, various media, which are staffed by the most dedicated followers of the maggots of academia.

            I recently read it takes an average of 2.11 children per couple to maintain the population of a culture or Nation. Many countries in Europe are well below that. That’s why they’re importing these heathens to keep up the population of their country. In America we are at 2.11 if we include the Hispanics. Folks Europe is gone it’s just a matter of a few years. If we don’t take hold of ourselves and start having babies like God commanded us to do we will be lost. The Bible plainly lays out the roles of the man and the woman in the family and there’s nothing wrong with that. There’s no reason why men and women both can’t have a career of their own and still do their part in the family.Women choosing careers over family and men allowing it to happen is a huge curse on this country. The destruction of the family is how Satan is trying to bring us down. Although he is already defeated and knows it the plan has to be played out.

          • justaman

            and yes I do believe the man is the head of the house and the woman is his help meet. If you don’t understand that or if that offends you somehow you need to look it up. It’s nothing disparaging about women at all.

            It is unnatural and against God’s will to defeat the sacrament of Marriage. As long as the family is not disrupted, outside interests are acceptable if they stay in the context of one’s feminine nature.
            Husbands neglecting their family responsibilities play a big part in causing wives to seek an identity of their own.
            Satan is alive and well but Our prayers to St Michael the Arc Angel will be heard also to send him and his minions back where they belong.

            It has always amazed me how god never really shows up. I mean if something good happens, god is great. If bad, well it’s all in his plan and we can’t understand it. Seems to me just like random chance. Except that more bad things seem to happen than good.

          • Robert Thaler

            We are not living in Paradise, we were kicked out. God has revealed the way to get back home. We cannot know God’s ways or give Him advice. we are not God. He alone can read a man’s heart. It seem easier to trust God when our wallet and our bellies are full. . Faith is just what it means, believing without seeing. Not just any faith but the faith that you are not abandoned and faith in the divine inspirations that come when humbly searching for the truth.
            the entire universe was created even just for you. If there is no God what is the use of offering our sufferings to follow Him. But there has to be, nothing cannot make something. God has always been…..too difficult to understand for us, it’s above reason, but getting something from nothing is unreasonable.

            The whole human race is more evil today than it was in Noah’s time might explain some recent chastisements directly after the “random” total eclipse across america. I can’t say that it is but I can’t say that it isn’t either.
            the Catholic church celebrated the 100 th anniversary of Fatima’s sun miracle that was witnessed by 75000 people in 1917 on Oct 13th to verify that Her message was true. You might want to learn about this.

          • The Gage

            So we need more white babies according to god? Why is it we don’t follow the bible word for word? We do not stone unruly children to death. We abolished slavery, even though the bible gives a nice set of rules for how to treat and handle slaves. Woman whom are raped are not married to their rapists. Why don’t we sacrifice animals to god or to “cleanse” our homes? All religions are horseSHIT. It amazes me that adults,even after being indoctrinated as kids( into whichever religion their parents were forced into) continue to believe once they can apply common sense and critical thinking. I know it is slowly shrinking, but damn, we humans just can’t give up our superstitions, no matter how insane they are

          Footnoted small sample of Judeo/Christian Religious Terrorism WRITTEN ORDERS direct from the Christian BuyBull (Quran has even more) for Murdering of innocent people:

          “Blessed be the Lord my Rock, who trains my hands for WAR, my fingers for BATTLE.” Psalm 144:1.

          Jesus: “ Do not suppose that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I did not come to bring peace, but a SWORD. 35 For I have come to turn…
          “a man against his father,
          a daughter against her mother,
          a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law…” Mathew10:34-35

          Jesus, who wanted to be King of the Jews, said: “But those enemies of mine who did not want me to be king over them–bring them here and KILL them in front of me.” (Luke 19:27)

          Anyone who curses or blasphemes God, should be STONED TO DEATH by the community. (Leviticus 24:14-16)

          Anyone who dreams or prophesizes anything that is against God, or anyone who tries to turn you from God, is to be PUT TO DEATH. (Deuteronomy 13:5)

          If anyone, even your own family suggests worshipping another God, KILL them. (Deuteronomy 13:6-10)

          If you find out a city worships a different god, destroy the city and KILL ALL of it’s inhabitants… even the animals. (Deuteronomy 13:12-15)

          KILL anyone with a different religion. (Deuteronomy 17:2-7)

          KILL all men, women, children, and, even, babies already of the 20 nations/50 belief systems/religions of the Promised Land when moving into it. (Deuteronomy)

          Imaginary Jesus of gospel stories said his followers must obey the Torah/Old Testament (N.T. not invented yet) (Jesus invented ~150 A.D.)

  • superpicker

    I grew up in scouting , from cub scouts through boy scouts , I attained eagle scout with 2 palms and went on to be an assistant scout master,( 30 years ago ). I left because the BSA started dumming down their program back then to allow anyone to belong , even if you couldn’t cut it. I always believed the scouting program helped boys become strong responsible men that could go on to be positive respectful leaders in their respective neighborhoods and communities , not so anymore i”m sad to say. I see this as the falling off downward spiral of a once great organization , and an end to a very important positive education and recreation source for boys and young men.

  • Elysium10

    Some things are ludicrous and not even worth paying attention to. When I was growing up I was a member to the Girl Scouts and there was also the Brownies. Why should girls join the Boy Scouts when there are Girl Scouts available. Is this another one those the mindless liberal social tinkering for no reason whatsoever, other than they are too lazy to address the real issues in this country? Do they sit around with too much time on their hands and think up this crap? Girls are not that dam insecure that they must be up in everything that boy do and probably never thought of it, until some idle voice got the ball rolling.

    This fraction need to get a life, live and leave us to do the same without them pulling up to our table uninvited because this is superficial nonsense having nothing to do with authentic equality or equal justice. Most women are not running around thinking about what man cave they can crash on any given day, they are working, paying bills, meeting their friends and taking care of their family and being concerned about love ones like all normal people. They want a real cause, what about taking on the mass media and lack of real journalism.

Therefore, , comingling genders is just another way of reinforcing the gospel that we are the same, which we are not and never will be. In spirit yes, the rest is commentary.

  • Gregg Parker

    The “THEM” SCOUTS? The gender debasing cults strike again. Don’t people see this for what it is?! The one place left where boys can identify as male and they want to infuse girls to change the dynamic. THEM again…

  • Earn nest

    We had girls in my explorer troop back in the 70’s. It was great! The biggest problem other than trying to get them in your tent was that we competed too forcefully in front of them.

  • Calling It Like It Is

    Wow!… So does this mean Bruce Jenner can be a Scoutmaster now?

    • Gregg Parker

      If you were in California you’d be on your way to life in prison! It’s a “Them” thing…

      • Calling It Like It Is

        Bruce Jenner is “Them” thing

        • Gregg Parker

          I wonder if when Them was still a he, he went through the list of baby girl names to pick one for itself, or if his demon master picked it for Them…

  • tbrec63387

    Although I can’t do it myself but I will be encouraging my daughter and son-in-law (an Eagle Scout) to pull my grandson out of the BSA.

  • Don Juan

    The Boy Scouts of America will no longer be called the Boy Scouts of America. They will now be called hence forth the Boy and Girl Scouts of America. This is a travesty to the organization that was founded by the late Robert Baden-Powell and William Boyce and I’m sure they are both turning in their graves right now. I use to be a full hearted contributor to the BSA, but not anymore. This is now the straw that broke the camel’s back. The Girl Scouts already have their own organization and no one really complained about it. But that was not good enough to the so-called politically correct leadership in this country. By their standards, we all have to be equal in everything we do in this country. What hogwash. I can see in the future that when there is a particular Scout Camp event going on, it will be the Boy Scouts against the Girl Scouts. When any of the boys win at a scouting competition, it will be considered a no big thing. The Boy that wins will be congratulated by the leadership and he will receive a merit badge for his efforts. But when a Girl Scout wins a particular competition, the national media will be there to broadcast it widespread on CNN, NBC, CBS and ABC. What a double standard. Why don’t you politically correct outsiders leave well enough alone in this thing. The Scouts have received my last dollar.

  • Ricarrdo estavans

    Will they be sharing the same tents or sneaking off into the woods together.

  • Ricarrdo estavans

    There will be a spike in pregnant girl scouts, crabs, herpes, and a host of other std’s. No more cookies for me.

  • Cosmic

    They need a name change from ‘Boy Scouts’ to ‘ Wussie Scouts’.
    And another American tradition bites the dust. Disband and reorganize 5 years from now.

    WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO A “ONCE” GREAT NATION ?? , LIBERAL SCUM ,,DESTROYING THE VERY FABRIC OF AMERICA…….

  • RunnerFriendly

    Before you know it the Boys will be joining the Girl Scouts. The people running these organizations are twisted and should be removed. More examples of an effort toward the feminizing of our country. Have you noticed the rise in football pre & post game shows as well as the T.V. sports shows are headed by women? Men are taking a back seat to women. I have nothing against women taking on more roles in our society, but lets not get carried away. I find it odd for a women to educate men on something they have never done. I guess men aren’t capable to handle this anymore.

  • Dead Toad

    The simple fact is there is no more Boy Scouts. Another sad loss to the Liberals in both a decaying Society and loss of our American values. They need to rename it just the scouts. So the Boy Scouts can reform once again. A little segregation of the sexes is a good thing. It gives us time to self-identify. Liberals want everybody to become transgender and they went to identify Who We Are.

  • Jmanjo

    This is an outrage! The Boy Scouts is for boys. The Girl Scouts is for girls! Tell the whackos that are pushing this gender crap to drop dead. Their agenda is false and moronic! We do not want our boys turning into girls or vice versa! The transgenders can go screw themselves (maybe that is what they want)! The Bruce Jenners are freaks!

  • Estoban

    The alphabet people continue to destroy this once successful, worthy organization. Will the BSA recognize all 50 different genders as well?

  • Ron

    Boy Scouts are for BOYS…Girl Scouts are for GIRLS…….period……..leave well enought alone already!!!

  • michaelsavell

    They did it in the UK and all it means is that girls come first.Even topline football is being taken over aided and abetted by the BBC.

  • Nihle65

    Wow, now the scout leaders and scout masters have girls to molest. why don’t they just call it the transgender scouts??? . How sick. If parents let there girl in there then the parents should be hung.

  • richard black

    which tree do the pee on …girls tree or boys tree???? SMDH !!!

  • jackie cain

    keep the girls OUT of the boys clubs and boys OUT of the girl scouts.. This is NOT right…

    This change in the weather or not to allow females to enter boy scouts has also been in Military Academies also as West Point jumped the gun on this change of venue!

  • misterguru

    1Cor 14-33 For God is not the author of confusion.

    Seems like someone is confused about the difference between boys and girls. Not God.

  • This is WRONG on so many levels it sickens me! I would remove my son from the BOY scouts in a heartbeat! That is why it is called “Boy Scouts”, it is meant for boys! Girl Scouts are for the girls! What is the problem with that? Just another leftist ‘women don’t have the same rights as men’ thing! Just can’t leave well enough alone!1

  • got my licence

    Maybe the reason the gals want to be Boy Scouts is because the Girl Scouts have failed them. Some how putting young women in with a bunch of males just hitting puberty does not sound like a plan for success. I see sexual harassment lawsuits, charges of rape and sexual assault (whether they be real or not) separate facilities and so on. A virtual lawyers gold mine.

  • smoke5713

    First, they allow “gay scout leaders”, to go on camping trips with young boys. Now they want to add young girls to the equation. It’s obvious that the scum progressives are involved here. Once the molesting begins, the msm will try to cover it up like the Catholic church did with priests raping alter-boys. This is a giant TICKING TIME BOMB!

  • jim_shipley

    It is just a continuation of liberals plans to undermining the roots of American culture in their efforts to destroy what made America great and prosperous. They are winning…It is past time for the silent majority to find their voice and end this, starting with ditching Hollywood. I am sick of social engineering by people who live in a fanaticy world and play make pretend for a living.

      Kick God out of our Country this is what you get

        Liberals are working as hard as they can to make everyone as weak, sick, and aimlessly pathetic as they are.

  • tomshup08

    This should be the end of the line for the BSA!

  • gotcha1

    There are already Girl Scouts why should they be involved with Boy Scouts? This country is going completely soft! This is total nonsense!!!

  • gideonrockwell

    What is this? Are the girls just afraid the boys by having an organization that is supposed to be teaching them life skill is getting something over on them? Are they afraid the guys might have secret hand shakes and passwords and the girls aren’t part of it? Are they afraid of guys just being guys? Another attempt by the Libertard to get the guys to check in their Man Card.

  • TPS12

    Time for a name change I guess they will just be called Scouts.

  • disqus_MZe2ymfHQj

    Might as well, some girls or more manly than the boys now. I would not allow my children no where near the scouts anymore. I don’t want my children to be Queers.—No more girl scout cookies.

  • Buzz Waldron

    We used to have to sneak girls into our tents at night…

  • Rich Saylor

    Well, it’s about time! I was in Scouting from Cub Scouts, to Webelos, to Boy Scouts, and on to Explorer Scouts… in an age that accepts women fighter pilots, ground forces, astronauts and whatever other roles women choose to enter, this type of entry into the trials of life and positive character building must be an opportunity made available for all. Without disrespect to the Girl Scouts, both I and my wife (we’re both architects) were involved in the Girl Scout program as adults, and frankly learning self-discipline and survival techniques in the woods and such is a bit more challenging than selling Girl Scout cookies…IMO. As for gender differences, I’m sure common sense and understanding parents and scout leaders will make this work, as it should have many years ago. It seems to work on the International Space Station, so it should work on Earth as well, shouldn’t it?Good Luck, BSA…. or should that be simply something like Young Scouts of America?

  • Randall clark

    THAT IS SO STUPID!!! WHAT ARE THEY GONNA CALL IT??? BOY-GIRL SCOUTS!!! AM GLAD MY KIDS ARE NOT THEIR AGE….I WOULD NOT ALLOW THEM TO JOIN!!! THATS JUST CRAZY!!!! I BELIEVE THAT WILL EVENTUALLY CAUSE PROBLEMS!!!

  • John

    GOD forbid that there would be any organization for straight young men to learn character building traits through outdoor activities. I am an Eagle Scout and saddened by the changes I’ve seen forced upon a once great organization.

  • CommonSenseReborn

    I was a Boy Scout when America was GREAT….People knew the difference between a man and a woman (it’s not Rocket Science). Now kids are encouraged to be trannys and gay…marriage after thousands of years redefined to same sex…we are imploding before our very eyes, thanks to all the Communist, liberals, atheists.
    Kick God out…this is what you get!!!

  • Harvey Mitterdorf

    What is the problem? Are the Girl Scouts not good enough?

  • rennyangel2

    I will not support the Boy Scouts anymore. Period.

  • CommonSenseReborn

    Should make for some great campouts…..won’t be long before evening news headlines read, “boy scout pregnant, fellow boy scout charged with sexual assault ” Want to bet?

  • Sharon Melvin

    I wonder how many Liberal parents are forcing their innocent daughters into joining boy scouts. Why can boy be boys and girls be girls. They are different and neither gender is superior!

  • Will the Boy Scouts fawn at the feet of the wicked?

    I asked that question in 2013 in a blog article titled with that very question, at http://www.constitutionmythbusters.org/will-the-boy-scouts-fawn-at-the-feet-of-the-wicked/. Obviously, they did and have continued to do so.

  • twspears6007

    Hard to believe that the BSA is really wanting more opportunity for Girl Scouts to develop more leadership skills by joining the BSA they say that most parents outside of the BSA want their girls to be involved the in the Boy Scouts and with overwhelming response. In all fairness did they state how many that are in the BSA and what their response was natha, zilch? I filled out the questionnaire provided by the BSA to local Councils and I and many were not in favor of any younger girls joining the BSA there are girls in many BSA activities like the Adventure and Explorer programs and that was acceptable for older girls. The bottom line is this is about money anyone with common sense knows this overwhelming fact it was the same with the admitting of homosexual youth and adults and you can add in Transsexuals in the mix. Baden Powell must be rolling over in his grave with these latest turn of events. This program was designed for the male youth of this world. The Girl Scouts was designed for female youth of this world. I believe that the liberal movement wants our youth to lose their identity and with the help of the BSA it is happening right before our eyes. So much for the slogan [America is returning to the values that the BSA never left] I hope this new program fails and America wakes up to what we as a nation is losing in morality promoted by the used to be the standard of morality the Boy Scouts of America. Sincerely, Trenton Spears, Scoutmaster for boys only.

  • Bill Giles

    If there wasn’t girl scouts, I might be able to see the logic of this decision, but to ban clubs from having girls or boys memberships is a violation of a person’s rights. Society is banning free choice by taking away the option of being in a club you feel most comfortable in. There are already options for girls and boys shared clubs, as well as for boys and girls separated clubs. The left is already supported clubs segregated by by race and color in universities, which shows their hypocrisy. They just want to get their quota of hatred and anarchy for each day. I taught a boys Sunday school class for several years. When the girls teacher left, I absorbed her female students. The boys loved it, but not necessarily the girls, because the boys spent most of there time being clowns because they thought that would impress the girls. They also became a little more aggressive towards the other boys, and rebellious towards me. The girls were great and were very vocal in scolding the boys, but the boys turned into savages.

  • Verna Safran

    That’s the dumbest policy decision I ever heard of. My son was denied membership in the Boy Scouts because his father and I are divorced. We were told they needed the fathers to be troup leaders. I wanted our son to join so he’d have some positive male role models. Why don’t the Boy Scouts fix their existing membership requirements before turning into the transexual scouts. Oh, another thing — Boy Scouts must swear their allegiance to God, which leaves out hundreds of atheists and agnostics who might make great scouts. Let Boy Scouts be boy scouts and Girl Scouts be girl scouts. Nuff said

    • twspears6007

      Verna In fairness the information about joining the BSA a Father is not necessary for a boy to join the BSA is false information they except even both fatherless and motherless boys just need a guardian to sign the application. Sincerely Trenton

    Boy Scouts is for boys. Girl Scouts is for girls. Lets not confuse with the identities.

    Certainly by definition and eventually reality, it is the end of the “Boy Scouts.” If you are over 50, think about your young adult peers. Now think about the young adults of today. Is something missing? Testosterone?

  • Linda Abernathy

    I wonder if the Girl Scouts know they have a group already? Is this all a money thing? Another bizzaro situation.

  • Hillary the Cankled Liar

    Once again, the Girl Scout program is so failed, that they have to stick their girls in the Boy Scout program!! LMAO!!!!!!

  • JR

    We can not have an independent organization teaching good morals and values to our children. It is just not the Liberal Socialist way.

  • katfan

    How about this. Just have Scouts. For sports, just have teams. Get rid of Title X. Colleges will have a basketball team, a football team, a volleyball team, etc., etc. if you are athlete enough to make the team, you can play. While we are at it, no WNBA, no LPGA, no women’s sports period, just sports teams. That is fair for everyone and no one gets their feelings hurt, except maybe the thousands of women who now compete in sports and will no longer be able to.

  • Michelle Greer

    I thought that Girl Scouts were supposed to be the sister group to BSA why would girls want, need or have to join the BSA? Are they now going to insist boys can or should join Girl Scouts? If it was a matter of patches to earn and activities that girls might want to do, why didn’t they just add more patches to each group ie wood craft for girls sewing for boys or survival trips. Another solution would have been to combine the groups into just The Scouts of America. But honestly if you are so hot to trot for a co-ed group go into Campfire, they have been combined for decades. The BSA aren’t trying to be I think they figured since there were the Girl Scouts there was no reason. Lions Club of America has been going through similar things, they have the Lion’s and the Lioness’s but some women decided they should be allowed to join the Lion’s and some groups have allowed it despite an active Lioness’s chapter in the same district.

  • Robalou01

    What a pathetic mess the Boy Scouts have become.

    I guess the Girl Scouts have become so corrupted, by supporting Planned Parenthood, that girls feel the need to join the Boy Scouts, who now admit openly homosexual boys and staff. There are no winners. Join TRAIL LIFE USA

    What a shame, this statement on the inability of women to run an operation, just like the Boy Scouts, only for girls. Quite a putdown for them. Wonder what happened. They used to be able to. Funny, that.

    If the BSA doesn’t lower the standard of requirements, if a girl can actually compete without any adjustment to account for physical strength or height, for instance, then let them join.

    This issue has been smoldering for years and in spite of the preceding posts isn’t necessarily linked with one specific individual or forced tangent to previous norms. Similar battles continue on all-male colleges (only three exist, though all have female faculty members – compared to the number of women-only environs?). “27633171” is spot on with the initial statement, below. Boy Scouts as I knew it ceased to exist when women became “counselors” in the Wood Badge program years ago under the auspices of need due to “single family” parentage, numbers of participants were tanking, and expansion of other school-linked and youth activities. Frankly, I was nauseated by the initial episode of the show, Survivor, and the female Cincinnati scout leader flaunting her “boy scout uniform” rather than more appropriate dress for the tropics.

    We have a family friend who served on the senior council of BSA and his spouse was so thrilled to see these changes. As she extolled the “virtue” of these strides forward, it was determined in our household that this was comparable to other temper tantrums permeating our 24/7 lives and should be dealt with in the same manner. I immediately ceased participation as a merit badge instructor and no longer donate to the BSA or any other funding organization which does (after nearly five decades). Why contribute to any company, organization, or movement which fails to meet expectations of the donor? It’s as simple as changing the channel or turning off the apparatus. Period.
