Thumbs down Boy Scouts accepting girls

Anyone know how to resign a National Eagle Scout Association lifetime membership?

Personally, I think this is the final nail in the coffin of the Girl Scouts, who fought tooth and nail at the beginning in the 1910s to exist independent of the Boy Scouts (and use the name 'scout') and have their own similar outdoors experience (rather than be absorbed into other girl groups that were more focused in hearth and home). They went off the rails and are dead. Too bad for them. At least the Boy Scouts are still alive, though nowhere their levels that they were in the 1920s (when 1 in 8 boys in the U.S. was an active Boy Scout).

This is an awful idea.

And they're going to be able to earn Eagle, too. WTF.

Hahahaha.........get this.......IT WAS A UNANIMOUS VOTE. Not a single cock sucking shitbag there voted against it. First they let the gays in.....then come the females. And presto ---- your org is completely destroyed.

Hmmmmmm, where have I heard that formula before????

The Girl Scouts have spent the last two decades morphing into an activist organization training the next generation of lesbian extremists along the lines of something out of The World According to Garp. If girls want to do scouting stuff without the politics/gender indoctrination/ideological purity tests, there's only one other scouting group. If the Boy Scouts are so afraid of lawsuits or public ridicule that they will cast every other rule and standard aside, letting girls in really isn't that big of an extra step. Both organizations had their day in the sun, but are currently living off their past reputations while their leadership throw traditions and principles out the window. Then again, maybe they are just following the example of West Point.

I'm glad to see that the BSA has now bowed down to the wishes of NOW!

Way to go guys...good to see you fight-the-good-fight!

Now there's another group I have to quit supporting.

Someone has to make the sammaches.

Seriously, it is a sad state of affairs. Might just as well open it up to trans kids too, as well as the pedophile scout masters.

I don't even get why they feel the need to do this- where I live the Y-Guides hold sway, where dads form "tribes" with their daughters (as I did with both mine) and take them out camping and whatnot. Its so popular in NC that many boys have come over into the program.

I don't know any families that have their girls in Girl Scouts or would even in their wildest dreams want them in Boy Scouts.

Don't you worry... I'm sure that's coming as soon as the next far left administration and societal mindset happen. They've already laid the ground for the pedophiles and the trannies.

What a sad fucking day.

They have life membership? I only got the 5 year one.

I think it's a bad idea. They've had co-ed Explorers/Venture Crews for decades. I've not been involved for a couple of years but my guess is the Southern Baptist group that split off has made a dent.

Which I think was a good thing.

Girl Scouts should up their game and teach girls what you said was important. Girls do deserve a program of rigor. Who said they couldn’t?

Boy Scouts are down numbers? So? This is suddenly about economics?

Women in this country should just boycott this measure and make Girl Scouts better than Boy Scouts!

Well maybe “let’s join a club that defines where we could reach, too ” is your gameplan in lieu of taking it to another level.

Women are better than this. Come on now.


Women have just taught their girls that mentoring isn’t important, joining is better since we can’t beat them.

Men are so much better at everything we need to teach girls to follow how boys do things since they won’t teach us. Don’t worry about fighting for equality girls, consider this a gift. Of course this generation has learned how to be thankful for a gift.

It would never be appreciated and the girls and boys would take advantage of the lack of leadership from adults.

It's damn near impossible to teach boys anything with girls of the same age within a half a mile. Fucking dumb.

MF! ...now I'm gonna get strong armed by little kids selling Boy Scout cookies outside Safeway too? Fukkit, I'm contacting the 'smores cartel directly and negotiating a bulk shipment to cut out this middleman BS once and for all.
