The Boy Scouts have announced a major change in their organization that will happen in February 2019. They will change their name to Scouts BSA.

This decision comes after their previous announcement back in 2017, where they decided to allow girls to join in, despite many objections from the Girl Scouts.

‘We believe it is critical to evolve how our programs meet the needs of families interested in positive and lifelong experiences for their children.’ said the chief executive of the Boy Scouts, Michael Surbaugh.

The chief customer officer for the Girl Scouts, Lisa Matgosian, wasn’t too happy about this so she stated the following:

‘We’re disappointed in the way the BSA handled this. We’ve enjoyed a strong relationship and partnership with them over the years and we’re disappointed that the BSA didn’t discuss this with us to say “we’re having trouble with our membership.”’

Social media was also ignited on the matter. Many prominent figures had a lot to say about it.

‘There’s something deeply sad about a society that presses for the Boy Scouts to stop being the Boy Scouts. And there is something hilarious about the Girl Scouts now complaining that the no-longer Boy Scouts will accept girls.’ said Ben Shapiro.

Matt Walsh pointed out two things that America can learn about the ‘self-destruction’ of the Boy Scouts Organization.

Walsh also reminded his followers not t o surrender to the ‘Left’ because ‘they will not be satisfied until you are completely obliterated.’

Surbaugh also made a prediction that both girls and boys in Scouts BSA would refer to themselves simply as scouts, rather that adding a gender like ‘boy’ or ‘girl’.

The organization stated that it would begin accepting girls in the Scouts BSA next year.
