Boy Scouts Giving in to 'Politically Correct Bedwetters — Georgia Candidate

Boy Scouts Giving in to 'Politically Correct Bedwetters — Georgia Candidate

The Girl Scouts stayed the same.

The Boy Scouts of America (BSA) made history today by unveiling the new Scout Me In campaign that features girls, as well as boys, in its iconic Cub Scout program for the first time.

After being known for 108 years as Boy Scouts the newly coed organization is dropping the "boys" from its name.

The program for 11-17-year-old boys will become "Scouts BSA" starting next year. The name of the organization will remain Boy Scouts of America.

Local Girl Scout groups are calling attention to their offerings. Single-sex troops will have the chance to work toward the Eagle Scout rank. "We want you to join!'"

"Ten million dollars were raised before we had anything to show for it, and they trusted us", Bartkowski said. "We're going camping pretty soon, and doing tie-dye t-shirts".

The members will use the word "scouts" to refer to one another instead of "boy scouts" or "girl scouts".

So far, over 3,000 girls signed up with over 170 cub scout packs across the nation. The 14-year-old says it's always been her dream.

To some, this is all long overdue, the century-old Scouts catching up with changes in society.

"'Oh mom!I have to join, ' she told me". "And you get to do the auto race [the Pinewood Derby], and you get to make your vehicle, and I was thinking that when I join, I'll do a panda vehicle". That's OK. They also have different strengths which the scouts play into. "I'm so excited about that for my daughter".

The Girl Scouts still feels as if it offers girls the best opportunity.

But the Boy Scouts' open invitation to girls infuriated many parents, as well as former Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts. "Perhaps separate scouting programs for boys and girls isn't so insane after all".

"Anything you can do in Boy Scouts, you can do in Girl Scouts", said Kenya Yarbrough, director of marketing and advocacy for the Girl Scouts of Greater Los Angeles. "A lot of people still see making things coed as "girling" everything down". "We wanted to land on something that evokes the past but also conveys the inclusive nature of the program going forward", he said. "Everything changes, and not all change is bad". One hundred percent of the people I've brought out here are completely floored.

"The emasculation of the Boy Scouts is complete", Huckabee tweeted Thursday morning.

Some cub scouts think its a good change.

But a BSA spokeswoman told Moneyish that the all-girls Boy Scout troops will differ from the Girl Scouts. And opening the Boy Scouts to girls, "is just another option for families to consider". "We both need to increase our membership numbers". The Boy Scouts' youth participation is about 2.3 million, down from 2.6 million in 2013, and more than 4 million in peak years.

Christina Salcido, a vice president of mission operations at Girl Scouts of Orange County, walked away impressed at the end of her tour at the center.

"We're proud to introduce scout me in, the new campaign that invites all kids and families in America to be part of the life-changing experience that is scouting".

Following the Boy Scouts' decision to change its name to Scouts BSA, Georgia GOP Gubernatorial candidate Michael Williams released a fiery statement slamming the move.

Bartkowski said key in incorporating STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) into traditional Girl Scout activities has been the organization's STEM advisory committee - especially committee member Texas Instruments.

She hopes to provide a more positive experience for new students and foster a culture of inclusion and respect that welcomes all students.
