The Boy Scouts of America is the latest institution to fall to political correctness. They are going to start admitting girls and will drop the word “boy” from their name. Why does the Girl Scouts even exist anymore?
The Daily Caller reports:
The Boy Scouts Are Changing Their Name To Be More Gender Neutral
Don’t assume their gender anymore.
In an effort to be more inclusive, the Boy Scouts of America are dropping the “Boy” in their name altogether. Last October, the Boy Scouts unanimously voted to begin allowing girls to join, starting in 2018. And today, the program announced they’re rebranding as the Scouts BSA.
“We wanted to land on something that evokes the past but also conveys the inclusive nature of the program going forward,” Boy Scouts Chief Scout Executive Mike Surbaugh said. “We’re trying to find the right way to say we’re here for both young men and young women.”
The change will take effect in February 2018, around the same time girls will be allowed to start joining the Scouts.
And although the program will accept girls, most activities will still be divided along gender lines. Camping trips, for example, will be segregated.
The move to integrate both genders was partly a sign of the times and partly a business move. The Boy Scouts were experiencing an attrition in participants, losing hundreds of thousands of members in less than a decade.
It seems like nothing is sacred anymore. The left will continue marching through American traditions and ruining them along the way.
