Barry Richard: The Politically Correct Crowd Killed the Boy Scouts

Georgia governor candidate says 'politically-correct bedwetters' ruined Boy Scouts

They will begin welcoming girls into Cub Scouts this year, followed by allowing girls ages 11 to 17 into the Scouts BSA in 2019. "That is why it is important that the name for our Scouting program for older youth remain consistent with the single name approach used for the Cub Scouts", said Michael Surbaugh, Chief Scout Executive of the Boy Scouts of America.

The 108-year-old organization will still be known as the Boy Scouts of America. "We're trying to find the right way to say we're here for both young men and young women".

The name change comes amid strained relations between the Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts of America. Dell added that Boy Scout and Girl Scout troops are good places for non-binary and gender non-conforming youth as long as the environment is respectful and accepting.

Williams joins the many voices criticizing the Boy Scouts' decision, including Marine veteran Johnny Jones, who addressed the controversy on "Fox & Friends", saying, "We live in a culture where you can't ask kids to be tough".

"My older son has a twin sister, and I took her to scouts also, but she wasn't really allowed to participate, but she wanted to, why can't I.well they don't accept girls", Thomas said.

Girl Scouts CEO Sylvia Acevedo responded to name-change announcement in an emailed statement to Business Insider.

The Scout Me In campaign celebrates the BSA's expansion to serve families and welcome girls and boys into Scouting in communities across the country.

It'll be interesting to see if girls actually join the organization of if they remain loyal to the Girls Scouts, which is now a fierce competitor, especially regarding recruitment of new members, rather than a complimentary organization. But the changes also reflect shifting social and cultural norms that expect programs to be equally available to boys and girls. "We are thrilled that the mission and goal of the BSA's programs to instill character and leadership is now a powerful promise for boys and girls alike".

Among the initiatives is creation of numerous new badges that girls can earn, focusing on outdoor activities and on science, engineering, technology and math. In its peak in the 1970s, the Boy Scouts of America had close to five million members, but this year, the organization said they had about 1.25 million Cub Scouts and over 800,000 Boy Scouts. One regional leader, Fiona Cummings of Girl Scouts of Northern Illinois, told the Associated Press the BSA's decision to admit girls is among the factors that have shrunk her council's youth membership by more than 500 girls so far this year.

Smith said it totally changes the dynamic of the Boy scouts. "We both need to increase our membership numbers".
