Boy Scouts Finally Do the Unthinkable Theyre Finished

Some have argued that the incessant growth of progressive liberal political correctness over the years would eventually lead to the death of historic and traditional institutions of American society, and a major announcement today from the Boy Scouts of America only seems to confirm those concerns.

According to UPI, the board of directors of the Boy Scouts announced that they would soon be opening up their organization to girls, beginning with the Cub Scouts, but would be developing programs for older girls to eventually reach the level of Eagle Scout.

It was reportedly a unanimous decision by the board of directors to accept girls into the scouts beginning in 2018, and they proudly announced the massive change to the organization in a media release, conveniently coinciding with what has been dubbed International Day of the Girl, a movement promoting gender justice and youth rights.

“This decision is true to the BSA’s mission and core values outlined in the Scout Oath and Law. The values of Scouting — trustworthy, loyal, helpful, kind, brave and reverent, for example — are important for both young men and women,” Chief Scout Executive Michael Surbaugh stated in the media release.

“We believe it is critical to evolve how our programs meet the needs of families interested in positive and lifelong experiences for their children,” Surbaugh continued. “We strive to bring what our organization does best — developing character and leadership for young people — to as many families and youth as possible as we help shape the next generation of leaders.”

The release cited various studies and surveys which they claimed showed a high amount of interest among girls and families to become involved in the organization and led them to make the final decision of making the Boy Scouts a co-ed entity.

“The BSA’s record of producing leaders with high character and integrity is amazing” stated national board chairman Randall Stephenson. “I’ve seen nothing that develops leadership skills and discipline like this organization. It is time to make these outstanding leadership development programs available to girls.”

Starting in 2018, families can beginning enrolling their young girls into the Cub Scouts. Existing packs will have the choice of remaining exclusive to boys, becoming an all-girls unit or combining into a co-ed pack. The smaller dens that make up a pack will remain gender exclusive to either boys or girls and won’t be mixed together.

Interestingly, the Girl Scouts of America are likely none too pleased by this development, as they had previously expressed their opposition to rumors of such a move, according to an article in NPR in August.

In fact, the president of the Girl Scouts, Kathy Hopinkah Hannan, sent a letter to the leadership of the Boy Scouts which accused the organization of attempting to “undercut” the Girl Scouts through a “covert campaign to recruit girls” in order to bolster their shrinking membership numbers.

It is worth noting that this major shift by the Boy Scouts came just months after the organization announced it would accept transgender members into the Scouts. That announcement followed the lifting of a ban on openly gay Scout leaders in 2015, which came just two years after a ban on openly gay members had been done away with.

Sorry folks, but it appears that the work the left has done to subvert traditional American institutions has claimed yet another victim and rendered a significant piece of Americana largely irrelevant going forward.
