You know the problem with the Boy Scouts? Too many boys. At least, that seems to be the brilliant thinking behind the Boy Scout organization’s latest effort to combat declining membership by dropping the word “Boy” and just becoming the gender-neutral “Scouts BSA,” to reflect that they now let in girls, too.
Apparently, none of them ever earned a merit badge in biology or they would know (brace yourself, this will probably get flagged as “hate speech”) boys and girls are different. The move is not only garnering criticism from parents, it’s also being blasted from an unlikely source: the Girl Scouts. While their official statement claimed they were unconcerned, some Girl Scout leaders told the media that they’re also fighting declining enrollment and if the Boy Scouts (oops, sorry: the Generic Scouts) want to attract more members, why don’t they target the 90% of boys who currently aren’t Scouts instead of competing with them for the girls?
This is just the latest in a long series of ever-more leftward PC drift of the Boy Scouts that’s seen them do away with prayer and the Pledge of Allegiance and the traditional Boy Scout oath to placate atheists, and admit gay Scoutmasters and transgender scouts and so on. Say, I wonder if any of that has something to do with the fact that 90% of boys are not Boy Scouts, that membership is half what it used to be, and the number of boys (and their parents) who are giving the group a pass is still rising?
Nah, it must be the name. Too masculine. That’s toxic, you know.
