Boy Scouts

Can one of you Libs please explain why the Boy Scouts will now become bisexu... er... Co-ed.

Serious question.

Oh brother, you're going to be set upon for this question......having said that I don't disagree. Doesn't the US have girl scouts and brownies, I know we used to in Canada but Scouts Canada became co-ed in 1998, all inclusive which is fine.

But seriously anything that caters to heterosexual white christian men is in jeopardy.

Boys should be allowed to girls scouts. They too need braiding lessons.

Are the boy scouts and girl scouts merging?

You know I'm not a liberal, but a couple of the reasons I've seen people express that I have a hard time arguing with:

#1. BSA is a faith-based organization (as opposed to GSA which is secular.)

#2. Troops will purportedly be separated by gender, so all this does is allow girls access to the structure/programming of BSA. Apparently there's a lot of dissatisfaction with the programming of the GSA and people would prefer to have their daughters being taught/gaining experiences from the BSA approach.

The reason why the girls wanted to become 'boy scouts' was so they had the opportunity to become Eagle scouts.

The solution they came up with, by allowing girls to be boy scouts was incorrect. The correct answer would be having an achievement in the girl scouts that is equal to Eagle scout.

Basically this. In addition, the board of the BSA voted unanimously in favor of this decision. They have had declining numbers in recent years, and this is a way to check off a lot of boxes, so to speak. I find it humorous that the people most upset about this are the ones that are impacted the least.

No, they're separate organizations.
Then it needs to be renamed "Scouts". And apparently the Girl Scouts is a lame organization. Maybe Harvey Weinstein should head up the Girl Scouts; he has become recently unemployed...

I feel like if he was in charge of them suddenly the entry age requirement would change to 18+, and they wouldn't be selling cookies.

The analogous versions of the scouts in various countries....don't be obtuse, lol

The fact remains that the Boy Scouts of America board unanimously voted in favor of this and the dens will be kept separate. Whats the issue again?


Edit: Also, the Boy Scouts of America are part of, and were founded from the World Organization of Scout Movement, which includes both boys and girls.
