Girl Scouts Don’t Think Female Boy Scouts Mean ‘Inclusion’

What happened?

The Boy Scouts of America board voted unanimously last week to allow girls to join the Boy Scouts.

Girls will be able to become Cub Scouts, and the BSA is also creating new programs for teenage girls that will let them achieve the rank of Eagle Scout.

The Girl Scouts president objected back in August to a “covert campaign to recruit girls into programs,” saying the Boy Scouts, a separate organization, was wrong in “thinking that running a program specifically tailored to boys can simply be translated to girls.”

Isn’t the “Girl Scouts” already a thing?

Yep. And Girl Scouts of America officials aren’t happy about the change, saying they weren’t consulted and implying that Boy Scouts are just trying to get their membership up in the name of political correctness.

“We’re disappointed that the BSA didn’t discuss this with us to say ‘We’re having trouble with our membership,’” Lisa Margosian, Girl Scouts chief customer officer, told BuzzFeed News this week.

Glenn’s take:  

Does “inclusion” really mean pretending that men and women are exactly the same and have nothing unique to offer? “There is something to be said for letting girls be girls and boys be boys and have different scouting experiences,” Glenn said.

GLENN: It's finally here. Gender inclusiveness. It is finally here. Thank goodness. It has finally come to the boys scouts. First, you know, they lifted their ban on gay and trans leaders, and now the Boy Scouts are accepting Girl Scouts. And what could be more progressive? What could be better?

The reaction from the left and from the Girl Scouts themselves is unabashedly and surprisingly negative, however. USA Girl Scouts -- (?) for female leadership has never been clearer and more urgent than it is today. And only Girl Scouts has the expertise to give girls and young women the tools they need for success, end quote.

I would agree with that. Wait a minute. Hold on just a second. Hold on just a second. That's the bidding Glenn Beck saying that. How could I (?) possibly agree with that?

Are the Girl Scouts an increasingly left-leaning organization actually advocating a difference between girls and boys, men and women? Advocating gender exclusivity? Where's the tolerance? Oh, my gosh, where is -- for some reason, (?) when it comes to keeping the Boy Scouts and the Girl Scouts separate. It's a narrative that flies in the face of everything they've said they've stood for.

There is no difference. We're all the same. What girls can do, girls can do. What boys can do, well, girls can do as well.

I'm strangely finding myself in agreement with the Girl Scouts today. I'm sure the Boy Scouts would love the increased membership because Boy Scouts is dying.

Until they want the opportunity to bring more people in. I mean, I would imagine in a few years, if you were a dog, you could also be a Boy Scout.

I'm sure also the convenience of sending all of their children to one place for scouting. But there is something to be said for letting girls be girls and boys be boys and have different scouting experiences.

Now, I know this is very controversial, or is it? There's nothing wrong with a male-September Rick or female centric organization. (?) nothing wrong with that. Male leadership and strong male friendship is important to the development of our young men. They need strong men and strong role models, just as female leadership and friendship is important to our young women. They need strong women leadership.

But there's -- there's one other problem with this. And I hate to even bring it up, because we don't have a problem with sexual predators in this country. Right, Hollywood?

We don't have a problem with any kind of sexual coercion or anything like that. What could possibly happen with our sons and our daughters out in the woods together by themselves at night?

What could possibly happen? I mean, after all, you remember the sign, no girls allowed? You know, they've had them up on their tree forts forever, until they reach a certain age. And then that seems to go away. But let's not pay attention to that.

The only real upside that I see on this is the new Girl/Boy Scouts. Is the new Girl/Boy Scouts (?) and one thing I can get behind is double the amount of cookies.

"As one falls, two more will take their place." Democracy does die in darkness and is being strangled in secret, back-door arrangements.

Disturbing details and explosive documents reveal how the Obama Deep State allowed the theft of a country and has set the stage for devastating consequences in our democracy today.

Bill O'Reilly: How corrupt media twisted Joe Biden Ukraine scandal onto Trump

Bill O'Reilly gives his take on whether or not President Trump DID promise or threaten the President of Ukraine for dirt on Joe Biden, and whether or not the action is grounds for impeachment. But O'Reilly explains that either way, the media has demonstrated its corruptness yet again by manipulating the story away from a scandal for Joe and Hunter, and towards a potential, rumored wrongdoing by Donald Trump.
