Hey, Boy Scouts of America, did you really think knuckling under to the Social Left was going to enhance your viability as an organization? You’re losing membership, and the Girl Scouts (a left-wing cookie distributing organization aligned with Planned Parenthood) are warning you not to poach any girls to make up for the boys who looked at your transgender initiative and banning water gun fights and said, “Not for me.”
“I formally request that your organization stay focused on serving the 90 percent of American boys not currently participating in Boy Scouts … and not consider expanding to recruit girls,” wrote GSUSA President Kathy Hopinkah Hannan in a letter sent this week to the president of the Boy Scouts of America, Randall Stephenson.
Top leaders of the two youth organizations,, conferred this month about possibilities for coordination. But Hopinkah Hannan, in her letter, said she came away from that discussion feeling the Boy Scouts had already committed to an expansion of coed programs that would damage the Girl Scouts.
The Boy Scouts and the Girl Scouts should just merge and become the Socially Conscious Organizations United to Transform Society (SCOUTS) and indoctrinate the youth that boys suck and girls are wonderful; which will put them in line with current public education and children’s TV programming messaging.
They might have to stop selling cookies though. I mean, how socially conscious can you be and still encourage childhood obesity? Instead, we can all look forward to young S.C.O.U.T.S. ambushing us outside Kroger selling “Gluten-Free Kale and Free Trade Quinoa Bars.”
Meanwhile, Trail Life USA — an organization that embraces all that “toxic masculinity” stuff like shooting, water gun fights, horsing around, courage, rugged individualism — has come along to fill the void created when the Boy Scouts abandoned those things.
