The Boy Scouts of America will now allow girls to join the organization, the group announced today.
The organization’s board of directors unanimously voted to let girls into the Cub Scout program and create a program for older girls to allow them to become Eagle Scouts, their highest rank, the group said in a release.
Girls will be allowed to join the Cub Scouts in 2018, and the program for Eagle Scouts is projected to begin in 2019, according to the release. Cub Scout dens will each remain single-gender, either all-girls or all-boys.
“The values of Scouting — trustworthy, loyal, helpful, kind, brave and reverent, for example — are important for both young men and women,” Michael Surbaugh, the Boy Scouts’ chief scout executive, said in a release.
“We believe it is critical to evolve how our programs meet the needs of families interested in positive and lifelong experiences for their children. We strive to bring what our organization does best — developing character and leadership for young people — to as many families and youth as possible as we help shape the next generation of leaders.”
As expected, conservatives are not happy, take a look:
Once the Boy Scouts caved in to the SJWs and allowed homosexuals, it was just a matter of time before they were doomed as an organization.

The Left has been trying to destroy the @boyscouts for years.
They finally got them to destroy themselves.

I miss the days when liberals fought for free speech & equality. Now all they do is disrespect our Anthem, put girls in Boy Scouts, destroy historical monuments, and defend Sharia Law.
Thank goodness they aren't in power.

Just rename it from boy scouts to genderless non binary 2 spirit scouts. We all know thats the direction the left wants to be heading.

Society has gone crazy enough to demand GIRLS be permitted in the BOY Scouts…
What line of common sense and decency won't the left cross?

The Left ruined the NFL, comedy, colleges, movies, and the Boy Scouts. They ruin every damn thing they touch.

I'm speechless. The Boy Scouts shouldn't have caved. There are Girl Scouts for a reason. The program is about teaching boys to become men 🙃

The Boy Scouts have elected to commit suicide.
They are dead to me, just like the NFL.
