She might prefer doing things more like the Boy Scouts than the Girl Scouts.

To start, it's worth noting that this move is a commentary on what a bad organization the Girl Scouts has become.

As the official announcement rolled out on social media, visitors at the shop and scouting leaders across CT contemplated what a co-ed future could look like for the Boy Scouts.

Furthermore, I really miss those days when we instinctively understood that boys and girls were different. "I couldn't disagree more".

"It's fine with me". I don't regret any of those hours that I spent at Boys Scout activities. Good things, each of them. "You were never allowed to go anywhere by yourself with a child who wasn't your own". "My wife and I have both said if Hannah wants to be a Boy Scout, then she can be a Boy Scout".

"Girl Scouts is, and will remain, the scouting program that truly benefits US girls by providing a safe space for them to learn and lead", a Girl Scouts spokesperson says, adding, "Only Girl Scouts has more than 100 years of experience helping girls tap into their leadership potential by reinforcing and extending the skills they learn in school in a supportive, encouraging environment in which they feel safe to just be themselves".

In fact, what's happening to the Scouts is a microcosm of what's happening to boys around the country - feminization. Yet we in the trans community know that this is certainly not the case. "Because you're not addressing the developmental needs of the boys by themselves as a group". Absolutely. Girl Scouts has numerous same challenges that any organization of its size would face.

L'Oreal Payton, director of external affairs for the Girl Scouts of Greater Chicago and Northwest Indiana in Vernon Hills, said their organization has focused exclusively on girls for more than 100 years.

The Girl Scouts learned back in January that the Boy Scouts were considering opening their ranks to girls, Margosian said.

The new challenge from the Boy Scouts is only the latest in a string of difficulties faced by the Girl Scouts over the past 15 years.

Many have rightfully applauded as the Boy Scouts of America have become more inclusive over the past few years.

The announcement also notes that girls will be able to attain the coveted Eagle Scout rank, a nationally recognized achievement. "Families wanted one program that offers them the ability to bring their sons and daughters together", he said.

While the groups were caught off-guard by the decision to add girls, which the BSA claims was prompted by popular demand, the reactions have been mixed to say the least. "It was overwhelming support that we should move forward". Venturing, Exploring, Sea Scouts and STEM Scouts groups are open to ages 14 to 21.

Skelly says the Boy Scouts still have a lot to work out before they start welcoming girls into the organization, but he's looking forward to new opportunities not just for himself as a volunteer, but also his family.

Interestingly, of all the criticism, the harshest seemed to come from Girl Scouts USA leaders. "In our program there has been sister tag-alongs, they do everything but don't get the badges", Smith said.

"Peter Jones with the Boy Scouts of America Montana Council disagrees".

"The National Catholic Committee on Scouting seeks to sustain and strengthen the relationship between the Boy Scouts of America and the Catholic Church and to work cooperatively with the National Federation for Catholic Youth Ministry and various other groups involved in youth ministry in the United States". In part, the motivation is to help families. She may want to learn how to hunt and fish and camp and be a part of more rugged outdoor activities.

Dolby grew up participating in Boy Scouts and earned the Eagle Scout rank, just like his older brother before him.
