Isn't this because Girl Scouts doesn't offer an equivalent to Eagle Scout? If so, why not add that to Girl Scouts?

"Starting in the 2018 program year, families can choose to sign up their sons and daughters for Cub Scouts. Existing packs may choose to establish a new girl pack, establish a pack that consists of girl dens and boy dens or remain an all-boy pack. Cub Scout dens will be single-gender — all boys or all girls. Using the same curriculum as the Boy Scouts program, the organization will also deliver a program for older girls, which will be announced in 2018 and projected to be available in 2019, that will enable them to earn the Eagle Scout rank. This unique approach allows the organization to maintain the integrity of the single gender model while also meeting the needs of today’s families."

My kids were raised in a scouting household. My two boys were Boy Scouts and outside of scouting we did camping, hiking, canoeing and other outdoor activities as a family. When my daughters were old enough for scouts, they could not understand why GSA did not give them the same opportunities for outdoor adventures that they had seen their older brother enjoy. My girls are all rough and tumble, confident and capable young women. GSA had nothing at all to attract them. They would have done BSA if they had had the option. In fact, one of my girls did become a BSA Explorer (police) in high school.

More coaches than scouters have molested children and way more public school teachers than priest have molested children. Your snarky comments are very much misdirected but do indicate either your ignorance or your prejudice.

Shocking that 14Red and EastYoungstown are the only ones who care much about this.

Yeah I can't wait to read SWM's 10,000 word post about the issue and how it will further lead to the downfall of western civilization.

Well, this isn't a response to the latest news, but in the leadup to this news, it appears the Girl Scouts are not too happy with this:

It will be interesting to see how this plays out.

Got one good response from the DB before it was closed:

This is the perfect opportunity for someone to create an alternative though for parents who want to raise their children to be a little less confused later on: The Real Boy Scouts

Will be pretty interesting to see what they call it, maybe just be boring and call it scouts. Is that what they called it when you were in it ronnie?

And a trail is a trail, a fire a fire, a skillet a skillet, a friend a friend, a tent is a tent, a canoe is a canoe. Scouts did not teach me how to be a "man". Scouts taught me how to be trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteousness, kind, obedient, thrifty, brave, clean and reverent. What is gender specific about that?

It's the predictable outrage from you that makes it hilarious. Pretty much a gurantee that whenever something slightly controversial happens you'll be on here fuming about it.

I'm perfectly fine with it. If girls were involved in Boy Scouts while I was a kid I probably would have stayed in longer.

The Girl Scout execs at the main office in Macedonia sound as if they are more interested in selling traditional camps on prime real estate to pay their 6 figure salaries than anything else. Losing the competition for members may inspire a selling spree.

It is called BOY scouts. It is for BOYS.... not GIRLS....

If they want a coed scout club then form one, no problem with that but no GIRLS in BOY scouts.....

what so hard about that.....

This sounds like an episode of the Brady Bunch when something like this happened.....

I had no problem with gay scout leaders nor did I have a problem with them not allowing gay scout leaders... it is a private club. If they want girls in so be it but I am 100% against it. Title IX messed up high school sports forever and nobody watches the WBA. Sorry, but unless it is beach volleyball I and so many others have zero interest in watching female sports. There is only 1 reason why we have female side reporters but have you ever seen an over weight one or one that is not attractive.... NO. OK, I started to ramble but it frustrates me when things that are sacred become tainted because of political correctness and soccer mom mentality.
