sandman: One solution would be for the Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts to merge. It would seem that participation in both organizations has declined over recent years and a merger would seem a logical way to deal with the declining number of members. That's not to say that I'm in favor of such a move, just that it might be a practical solution that would work for both organizations.

Boy Scouts of America: Girls now admitted
BSA trying to bolster membership. Does it make sense to call it BOY Scouts of America anymore?

Yes, Boy Scouts is the proper name. Hopefully calmer heads will again prevail someday and boys will be boys and girls will be girls.

Boy Scouts Go Full Social Justice Warrior
I asked this question a couple months ago:

Apparently the question is now answered.

Mormon church to sever ties with The Boy Scouts of America
This is pretty funny, especially towards the end. But the point is that the LDS church has standards and a purpose. BSA has caved to political correctness every step of the way. It's very disappointing to see the BSA tradition turn into a snowflake farce of what it used to be. I don't think the BSA organization will last long. The Mormon Church will probably acquire most of it's properties over the next few decades. BSA camps will one by one become Mormon youth camps. That's probably for the best...

The Girl Scouts are suing the Boy Scouts over dropping the word 'boy' from their name
Apparently it's sometimes possible not to be sexist enough! You'd think dropping the word BOY from the name of an organization would be applauded by your typical SJW type, but of course it doesn't necessarily sit well with everybody. Traditionalists would like there to be a clear distinction based on gender between scouting organizations, but it looks like in this case complaints are being made for purely business reasons.
