-Boy Scouts: Transgender Children Now Allowed

Friday, February 10, 2017 8:57
% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Earlier this month, a Cub Scout Pack kicked a transgender girl out of their program for not being a biological boy, causing quite a controversy in the media. Now the parent Boy Scout organization has officially announced that transgender children are welcome in all of their programs. Here’s the story from Fox News:

The Boy Scouts of America announced Monday that it will allow transgender children who identify as boys to enroll in its boys only programs.

The organization announced it had made the decision to begin basing enrollment in its boys-only programs on the gender a child or parent lists on the application to become a scout. The organization had previously held a policy that relied on the gender listed on a child’s birth certificate for those programs.  …

Rebecca Rausch, a spokeswoman for the organization…said the enrollment decision goes into effect immediately.

Response: The Scouts responded to the onslaught of the media by quickly caving in. They obviously did not think this through and consider all of the consequences and downsides to this new policy. The fact that this new policy goes into effect immediately means that those who might have opposed this change were not given a chance to register their opinions and misgivings. As a result, controversy will be the new organizational norm as this change is put into effect.

First of all, hundreds of conservative churches that sponsor Cub packs and Scout troops will be considering how they’ll respond to this change. Undoubtedly many will want a ruling on whether this new policy is optional or mandatory.

Then thousands of parents will be asking their local leaders pointed questions about how they plan to handle certain compromising circumstances and depending on the answers you can bet that many will be pulling their boys out of the organization. For sure, alternative Christian organizations like Trail Life will soon see an increase in their numbers.                *Top

    So now boys are allowed to be girls and vice versa. I guess a turnip is a carrot. :roll:

    Liberals are idiots. If your kid that has a vagina thinks she’s a boy, then she needs to join the girl scouts. Not the boy scouts. It’s actually very simple but retarded people are unable to grasp the concept between the difference between two opposite things.

    Either that or they are so afraid of hurting someone’s feelings that they’ll let them do anything they want, which essentially teaches them nothing about life. That only makes them think that they’re in charge and get to tell everyone else what to do.

    So pathetic, these liberals are.
