So it seems that feminists, social justice warriors, and assorted other left-wing nutjobs are determined to ruin anything and everything they get their hands on, because them being miserable wretches isn’t enough. Nope, they want to bring the rest of us down with them.

For some time now, the Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts have been sliding down the slippery slope of immorality, caving repeatedly to our ever growing liberal culture, forsaking the principles the organizations were founded upon, all to look relevant and continue in popularity.

Well, now they have taken yet another leap into sheer insanity, this time the Boy Scouts have decided to let girls into the program. So, yeah. Wonder if they’re going to change the name?

From Breaking911:

Today, the Boy Scouts of America Board of Directors unanimously approved to welcome girls into its iconic Cub Scout program and to deliver a Scouting program for older girls that will enable them to advance and earn the highest rank of Eagle Scout. The historic decision comes after years of receiving requests from families and girls, the organization evaluated the results of numerous research efforts, gaining input from current members and leaders, as well as parents and girls who’ve never been involved in Scouting – to understand how to offer families an important additional choice in meeting the character development needs of all their children.

“This decision is true to the BSA’s mission and core values outlined in the Scout Oath and Law. The values of Scouting – trustworthy, loyal, helpful, kind, brave and reverent, for example – are important for both young men and women,” said Michael Surbaugh, the BSA’s Chief Scout Executive. “We believe it is critical to evolve how our programs meet the needs of families interested in positive and lifelong experiences for their children. We strive to bring what our organization does best – developing character and leadership for young people – to as many families and youth as possible as we help shape the next generation of leaders.”

Families today are busier and more diverse than ever. Most are dual-earners and there are more single-parent households than ever before [1], making convenient programs that serve the whole family more appealing. Additionally, many groups currently underserved by Scouting, including the Hispanic and Asian communities, prefer to participate in activities as a family. Recent surveys [2] of parents not involved with Scouting showed high interest in getting their daughters signed up for programs like Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts, with 90 percent expressing interest in a program like Cub Scouts and 87 percent expressing interest in a program like Boy Scouts. Education experts also evaluated the curriculum and content and confirmed relevancy of the program for young women.

If you open up a dictionary — you know, one of those huge books likely collecting dusk on your bookshelf — and look up the definition of “absurd,” this announcement, right next to the BSA logo is all you’ll see.

Why can’t boys and men just have something of their own? Why does it have to be open to girls? Isn’t that what girl scouts is for? Boys need to learn how to make friends with other boys and need that one-on-one guy time. The same goes for girls.

The liberal agenda is destroying some of our most popular institutions, and the sad part is, this makes the left happy.
