Boy Scouts Drops "Boy" from Its Name

Boy Scouts plan name change as girls prepare to join Conservatives declare 'war on masculinity' over the Boy Scouts changing its name

"I think a lot of our programs are gender-neutral, but we'd just always been the 'Boys Scouts, ' " he said.

After more than a century, the Boy Scouts of America are giving in to political correctness and changing the name of their flagship program. "We're trying to find the right way to say we're here for both young men and young women".

From the Boy Scouts of America Headquarters in Fort Myers, local Boy Scouts and their parents are coming to the realization that the organization is about to become more diverse. The current name of the youth program - Boy Scouts - includes kids ages 11 to 17.

The Boy Scouts of America (BSA) is changing one of its iconic program's names after entering a new era of inclusion for both boys and girls.

The new name? Scouts BSA, the outlet said.

Which raises the question, what about girl scouts?

The organization will not be dropping the "Boy" from its official name, which has been the same for 108 years.

The name change also shows the century-old organization is evolving to serve the whole family with its leadership and character education programs, she said. "Her reaction when they finally announced that girls were allowed in was 'it's about time'". "Over 3,000 girls have already joined the Cub Scouts" pilot program and the campaign's imagery will partially be drawn from their experiences. This paradigm shift is meant to show "what it's like to be a Scout from a kid's point of view", according to the press release.

The Boy Scouts have been slowly dying for years because people insist girls should be able to join - much to the Girl Scouts' chagrin.

The name change does not affect the organization's principal name - Boy Scouts of America - said Dave Kirk, executive director of the Snake River Council.

"We're excited about the opportunity that girls and boys will have to equally participate in the program, and that girls will have the opportunity to earn the coveted Eagle Scout award and all the benefits that affords them in life". "We both need to increase our membership numbers".

The Boy Scouts of America has lost about a third of its members since 2000, which now stands at about 2.3 million. "If it's not them, it might be us".
