The Boy Scouts of America announced on January 30 that the group will now accept youth based on “gender identity” as opposed to biological sex.
An individual’s birth certificate will no longer determine eligibility for single-gender programs according to a press release published by the organization. Instead, girls who feel like boys will be allowed into the group no questions asked.
It’s worth noting that the Scouts was one of the last remaining environments for boys to be boys without worrying about transgender nonsense. It was a place that didn’t vilify traditional masculinity or natural gender roles.
Evidently, leftists will not be satisfied until their degenerate ideology has invaded every crevice of society.

As one of America’s largest youth-serving organizations, the Boy Scouts of America continues to work to bring the benefits of our programs to as many children, families and communities as possible.
While we offer a number of programs that serve all youth, Cub Scouting and Boy Scouting are specifically designed to meet the needs of boys. For more than 100 years, the Boy Scouts of America, along with schools, youth sports and other youth organizations, have ultimately deferred to the information on an individual’s birth certificate to determine eligibility for our single-gender programs. However, that approach is no longer sufficient as communities and state laws are interpreting gender identity differently, and these laws vary widely from state to state.
Starting today, we will accept and register youth in the Cub and Boy Scout programs based on the gender identity indicated on the application. Our organization’s local councils will help find units that can provide for the best interest of the child.
The Boy Scouts of America is committed to identifying program options that will help us truly serve the whole family, and this is an area that we will continue to thoughtfully evaluate to bring the benefits of Scouting to the greatest number of youth possible – all while remaining true to our core values, outlined in the Scout Oath and Law.
