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.

'They believe their job is to REMAKE your child': WSJ writer warns public schools may be LOST to woke trans activism

There's a new "reality" spreading, and the mere act of questioning it has become incredibly dangerous, Wall Street Journal investigative journalist Abigail Shrier told Glenn on the most recent episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast."

Shrier's book, "Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters," exposes the radical gender activism that — like critical race theory — has overtaken our children's schools and culture. But even worse, she warned, it could end your parental rights for good.

Shrier made it clear she is by no means "anti-trans," but simply speaking up against the extremes of this new "reality" has made her enemy No. 1 to many activists. Her book has been bashed so hard by the Left that Target has stopped selling it twice, Amazon once banned ads for it, and the American Booksellers Association even called sending it to others "a serious, violent incident."

In the clip below, Shrier explained why she believes "there may be no hope for the public school system."

"You have teachers behaving like activists across the country who have no interest in actually teaching. They believe their job is to remake your child," she asserted. "We're seeing so much evidence of that, I think it's fair to say that it may be too deeply rooted in the ideology being taught in public school. I'm not sure that the public school system is redeemable at this point."

Is California ‘PURPOSEFULLY’ destroying this small business?

It seems like some politicians are purposefully trying to destroy the lives and dreams of certain Americans, specifically small business owners. Dave Foldes spoke to Glenn over six months ago after THIS audience raised thousands of dollars for his restaurant that refused to close: Cronies Sports Grill. Now, despite making progress in his administrative battle against LA, the city of Agoura Hills, California is coming for Cronies instead. And the reasoning is INSANE. But Foldes isn't giving up, and neither are his supporters. It's the ultimate David vs. Goliath showdown.

Trans Activism Will End Your Parental Rights | Abigail Shrier | Ep 110

There's a new "reality" spreading, and the mere act of questioning it is incredibly dangerous. Just ask Wall Street Journal investigative journalist Abigail Shrier. Her book, "Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters," exposes the radical gender activism that — just like critical race theory — has overtaken our children's schools and culture. But even worse, Shrier argues it could end your parental rights for good. She is by no means "anti-trans," but simply speaking up against the extremes of this new "reality" has made her enemy number one to the activists. Recently, the American Booksellers Association even called sending her book to others "a serious, violent incident." Abigail joins Glenn to lay out just how slippery this slope has proven to be and what we — conservatives and liberals — must do to protect our children.

DEADLY Negligence: Exposing the REAL Origins & Coverup of the COVID-19 Pandemic

Who were the people and groups involved with coronavirus research, and what really went down before and after the pandemic began? On "Glenn TV" this week, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to outline a tale of negligence and then, coverup. The elites of the world - the people calling themselves experts - trusted the Chinese Communist Party with one of the most dangerous weapons we can imagine on this planet--a virus.

Glenn reveals who was involved in a definitive timeline, and argues: If proof of a lab leak does come out, the worlds needs to know EVERYONE that was involved. We must expose the coverup and attempt to control the narrative of the pandemic origins. Everyone from Big Tech, the media, the Chinese and even our own government have been involved. What lies behind the coverup could reveal the dirty secret that, in order to cut corners, the academic elites and government entrusted Communist China with a civilization-killing virus.
