So I guess this means they’re just the “Scouts” now?
Apparently, it wasn’t enough that there’s literally a group called Girls Scouts. The Boy Scouts of America have caved to the pressure of gender ideologues and decided to allow girls into its program.

Under the plan just announced, the smallest unit, Cub Scout dens, will be single-gender, either all-boys or all-girls. The larger Cub Scout packs will have the option to welcome both genders if they choose. The program for older girls is expected to start in 2019 and will enable girls to earn the top rank of Eagle Scout.
In its statement, the Boy Scouts says that the “historic decision comes after years of receiving requests from families and girls.”
It went on: “The organization evaluated the results of numerous research efforts, gaining input from current members and leaders, as well as parents and girls who’ve never been involved in scouting, to understand how to offer families an important additional choice in meeting the character development needs of all their children.”
Meanwhile, there has been no such push to allow boys into the Girl Scouts, some leaders of which maintain that this move is nothing more than an attempt to reverse declining membership in the BSA.
Maybe they also understand what the name “Boy Scouts” implies.
