Not really followed this story.
WHY did the Boy Scouts change their name, what exactly is the big deal?

I agree it is the end of the Boy Scouts, but the Girl Scouts did not support boys admitting girls, for the most part anyway. In a few years the demoralized remnants of these 2 organizations will merge into one, then slowly wither away from there.

Why can't we just have SCOUTS OF AMERICA--SOA...and be done. ???

Why does it have to be BOYS OR GIRLS?? Both genders go to school together--play together in the neighborhoods--play soccer and softball--so what's the BFD?

we must make sure these kids are ready to survive in the wilderness!!!

they might be in it just as soon as they're old enough to leave home and set out and try to find some left in the nation.

Children allegedly being your wheelhouse I am suprised that you are asking.

Young children need places that they can go to to socialize w/ other kids of their gender be it boys or girls. Once you toss a boy into the girls group or vice versa it completely changes the dynamics.
