You had to see the name change coming. We’ve even joked about it (see Boy Scouts Ban Water Guns. Soon Becoming Girl Scouts… and Boy Scouts Will Now Admit Girls). But after 108 years, the organization will now be known as Scouts BSA.
For 108 years, the Boy Scouts of America’s flagship program has been known simply as the Boy Scouts. With girls soon entering the ranks, the group says that iconic name will change.
The organization on Wednesday announced a new name for its Scouts program: Scouts BSA. The change will take effect next February.
The parent organization will remain the Boy Scouts of America, and the Cub Scouts — its program for 7- to 10-year-olds — will keep its title, as well.
But the program for 11- to 17-year-olds — will now be Scouts BSA.
That’s not the only change to accommodate girls. The uniforms are going to have more glitter on them. BSA is adding new merit badges like “Friendzone” and “Spin Class.” Also, the Scout Jamboree is being replaced with a Grey’s Anatomy marathon. I think these are jokes. For now. Honestly, it’s hard to tell in 2018.
Here’s a question: what’s so wrong with female only safe spaces and male only safe spaces? Wasn’t it the left who said we needed safe spaces? So now the gender wars have disintegrated those sacred places men had and women had. How has this made us happier?
