The Boy Scouts are now officially history

#1

Post by Ruark » Thu May 03, 2018 6:55 am

The Boy Scouts of America has formally announced its name change, to "Scouts BSA." They will no longer use "Boy" so they can be gender-neutral, and will accept both girls and boys (as well as LBGTwhatevers). Never thought I'd see the day.

When will the announcement be that Girl Scouts are changing the name to Scouts, GSA and allowing both sexes and all perceived genders?

And the Girl Scouts have already been seeing declining membership. This won't help their cause at all.

Wonder how the new Scouts BSA will handle co-ed camping trips?

As an Eagle Scout from 1966, I am officially offended by this and have written to them to voice my displeasure.
As was somewhat stated above, you don't hear of boys wanting to go into the girl scouts.
The same issue has happened with bowling tournaments. There used to be men's, women's and mixed tournaments. Then the women complained and started wanting to bowl with the men. Their reasoning was the prize funds were higher for men than women. Now, this was true but the entry for women was always less than men. Now, they have women's, mixed, and open tournaments. There was a guy that tried to bowl in a womens tournament a few years ago and was refused. Not sure if he went to court or not about it though.

Kinda like the women are afraid to let the men do anything on their own any more :evil2:

It'll take a very great risk for Scout Masters to remain Scout Masters given the horrible accusations that are potentially waiting to happen.

I'm not a Scout Master, but if I were, I'd promptly quit being one.

:iagree:


Sadly this has been in the works for a while... and our local pack has been resistant to say the least. Initially it was pitched as convenient because the boy's sisters wanted to participate... but no one above our pack liked my idea of inviting the local girl scouts to share the time and space. Thinking that we could also draw some of the brothers of girl scouts. Could have been a mutually beneficial solution - but now, I'm looking into other organizations.

It's challenging enough to raise a boy without the extra pressure of societal sissification of men. Not everything in the world is right or fair... boys need to understand that noses will be bloodied and women need to be respected, not oogled and most of all, that our Lord and Savior commands men to be men and women to be woman, with different roles, needs and strengths. We were designed with different characteristics, different though processes and different bodies... none of those by accident and none of them by the impact angle of some space rock! :banghead:

Eagle class of ‘85 here...

The Boy Scouts served us well - teaching boys to become men. Unfortunately, they have lost their way.

Lord Baden Powell would be disappointed in what has become of his organization. Anyone who disagrees with this statement should read some of his own words: https://filestore.scouting.org/filestore/pdf/quotes.pdf
Your number one option for personal security is a lifelong commitment to avoidance, deterrence, and de-escalation.
When those fail, aim for center mass.

There is also an organization called Royal Rangers as an alternative to Former Boy Scouts of America.

The Girl Scouts said their organization was blindsided by the move and are planning an aggressive campaign to ramp up recruitment numbers
"Girl Scouts is the premier leadership development organization for girls," Sylvia Acevedo, the Girl Scouts' CEO, said. "We are, and will remain, the first choice for girls and parents who want to provide their girls opportunities to build new skills...and grow into happy, successful, civically engaged adults."
So, the Girl Scouts stubbornly want to continue to build girls into women while the Boy Scouts bow to the progressive and feminist agenda of neutering males and destroying masculinity. :banghead:

Obviously the Girl Scouts need to be mocked, ridiculed, sued and destroyed for their gender bias and exclusivity. :grumble

Cool. So now a girl who self identifies as a gender neutral Poodle will have a group to join. And we take yet another step down the path to liberal Utopia!
