The BSA are dying and need funds, so being the good little regressives that they are they did this.

No.

They issued a statement they were 'blindsided' by the BSA announcement.

I think young girls may think it's cool to join a boy's club, whereas young boys will not think it's cool to join a girl's club. Unless things have changed since I was a kid.

If they're going to let girls in the Boy Scouts, then why call it Boy Scouts at all?

As a Catholic, I've seen a lot of people gripe about girls being altar servers but I genuinely don't have a problem with it so long as they do their jobs and are reverent.

Do you have any facts to back up this claim?

Or is this yet another made-up statement to help yourself feel better about the situation and the truth is irrelevant?

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.
I reiterate, what do you not understand about the word BOY?

Let's not leave out scouting for one-eyed, hunched-back, Mongolian, transgender kids.

I was speaking more along the lines of pizza parties being included in their long weekends camping.

I understand the term just fine.
Do you think the people who run the Boy Scouts don't understand the term?

Just like I'm sure you understand the phrase "He-man woman haters club"
