The Boy Scouts of America's board of directors has unanimously agreed to let girls into the Cub Scout program and to give 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.

Seriously, WTF?
A variety of aspects...
One article I read pointed out that if a family has both boys and girls, "Boy Scouts" and "Girl Scouts" doubles the events between the two. Allowing girls consolidates some activities which is easier on parents.

Their focus is another matter. The badges are different between the two groups. So if Susie wants to learn auto maintenance, she can in the BSA but not GSA...

Boy Scouts is a larger organization, so this may allow some girls to join when they don't have a Girl Scouts alternative locally available...

Yet another post where you ignore actually commenting on the topic and instead go for personal ad hominem...

So? Let the Girls Scouts start an auto mechanics program if their is enough interest among their members.

That's one option.
Another is that they be allowed to join the BSA.

Guess which one the BSA chose?

You have to be about the second-most sexually repressed person on this board.

Wow. The melodrama from your snowflake wound virtually oozes there...


Do yourself a favor and look back at my post regarding the reasons for this change.
"Boy" Scouts enter the 20th century

Not one iota of it has to do with liberal immorality / social science experiments.
The real problem here is simple. Some people don't like change and they immediately jump to blaming their stereotypical boogey-men whenever they see something change.
Thanks from RNG

Sounds like the scout masters just want a little more variety. Do they have coed alter boys too?
