With girls joining the ranks, Boy Scouts plan name change


For 108 years, the Boy Scouts of America’s flagship program has been known simply as the Boy Scouts. With girls soon entering the ranks, the group says that iconic name will change.
The organization on Wednesday announced a new name for its Boy Scouts program: Scouts BSA. The change will take effect next February.

.........

The name change comes amid strained relations between the Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts of America.
Girl Scout leaders said they were blindsided by the move, and they are gearing up an aggressive campaign to recruit and retain girls as members.

.........

The overall impact of the BSA’s policy change on Girl Scouts membership won’t be known any time soon. But one regional leader, Fiona Cummings of Girl Scouts of Northern Illinois, believes the BSA’s decision to admit girls is among the factors that have shrunk her council’s youth membership by more than 500 girls so far this year.
She said relations with the Boy Scouts in her region used to be collaborative and now are “very chilly.”



And in other news, the National Organization for Women (NOW), has said that it is considering admitting men to its membership. Under new conditions set forth by the organization, men who voluntarily undergo chemical castration will be eligible for general membership, while those who choose to undergo surgical castration will be eligible for the premium plan - NOW Gold Membership.

First came acceptance of gay and transgender Scouts. Now girls can be Boy Scouts

In your own words, could you explain the positive side of this, as to why it will be beneficial to both the (former) Boy Scouts and the Girl Scouts?

Yeah, I didn't think you'd be able to do it.
Oh, well - if you happen to come across a Think Progress opinion piece telling you how you are allowed to respond to this, let me know.

Damn.
And all this time you've been telling me that I was beholden to Fox News.
Whenever you are ready to make up your fucking mind, get back to me.
(Side note - it's nice to see you running interference for Artchel 60438.
Lord knows, it needs all the help it can get.)
