    What a sad fucking end to a once magnificent organization,
    destroyed by liberalism and weak homosexual Obama democrat

    Gutless cunts. These are the kind of people who need to be
    strung up by their necks until the crows pick their bones clean,
    and wind scatters the remainder to the ground.

    The Boy Scouts of America doubled down Wednesday on its quest to
    become the scouting organization of choice for boys and girls,
    announcing it will drop "Boy" from the name of its signature

    But the decision didn't impress the Girl Scout organization,
    which noted no new, "girl specific" programming.

    “Girl Scouts is the premier leadership development organization
    for girls,” Sylvia Acevedo, CEO of Girl Scouts of the USA, said
    in a statement. “We are, and will remain, the first choice for
    girls and parents."

    Both groups, which have been at odds since the Boy Scouts
    decided to open its doors to girls, have been struggling with
    declining membership.

    The umbrella organization will retain its name, Boy Scouts of
    America or BSA. The term Cub Scouts, for kids 7-10 years old, is
    gender neutral and also will go unchanged. Boy Scouts, which
    includes kids from 10 to 17, will become Scouts BSA in February.

    Chief Scout Executive Mike Surbaugh unveiled the group's "Scout
    Me In" marketing campaign aimed at promoting inclusiveness. “As
    we enter a new era for our organization, it is important that
    all youth can see themselves in Scouting in every way possible,"
    Surbaugh said.

    Change has been coming quickly to the iconic if shrinking
    organization. In October, it announced it would provide programs
    for girls. Several months before that, the group announced it
    would accept and register transgender youths into its

    In 2015, it ended its ban on gay leaders.

    Cub Scouts will formally accept girls starting this summer.
    Surbaugh said more than 3,000 girls nationwide already enrolled
    in the BSA’s Early Adopter Program and are participating in Cub
    Scouts before the full launch.

    Allowing girls into the organization allows busy families to
    consolidate programs for their kids, BSA says. Most of the
    actual Cub packs and Scout troops, however, will be single
    gender. Girls and boys can work toward the prestigious title of
    Eagle Scout.

    “Cub Scouts is a lot of fun, and now it’s available to all
    kids,” said Stephen Medlicott, BSA marketing director. “That’s
    why we love ‘Scout Me In’ — because it speaks to girls and boys
    and tells them, ‘This is for you. We want you to join!’ ”

    Boy Scouts of America claims almost 2.3 million members, down
    from 2.6 million five years ago. That includes Venturing and Sea
    Scouting programs, the latter allowing membership up to 21
    years of age. In its peak years, BSA had more than 4 million

    Adults play a major role in the program: Almost 1 million adult
    volunteers serve as the backbone of the organization.

    It's too early to determine what impact the aggressive BSA
    effort to recruit girls will have on the Girl Scouts, an
    organization best known for its lucrative annual cookie sales.
    The organization, founded two years after Boy Scouts, currently
    claims a membership of about 1.8 million.

    The Girl Scouts list a series of efforts designed to "stay ahead
    of the pack of youth organizations." That includes 23 new merit
    badges focusing on outdoors and STEM (science, technology,
    engineering and math). And last month, the organization unveiled
    a LinkedIn network aimed tapping a major resource — the group's
    50 million alums.

    The goal of the network is "to support female advancement in the
    workforce and help prepare girls for a lifetime of leadership
    and career success."

    Still, the impact of the BSA effort is being felt. 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.

    She said relations with the Boy Scouts in her region used to be
    collaborative and now are “very chilly.”
