Said they were blindsided by the move.



So far, more than 3,000 girls have joined roughly 170 Cub Scout packs participating in the first phase of the new policy, and the pace will intensify this summer under a nationwide multimedia recruitment campaign titled “Scout Me In.”


The name change comes amid strained relations between the Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts of America.

This was a blog that the Girl Scouts posted last year before the formal announcement:


Girl Scout Blog: Girl Scouts Is the Girl Leadership Expert


And a news story at that point:


Girl Scouts slam Boy Scouts' decision to accept girls: 'The Boy Scouts' house is on fire'


Single gender organizations have their place. I think to claim otherwise is folly. How do you address that properly viewed through the lens of these type of organizations that are (seemingly) so disparate in their focus? Well, that's a problem someone else can solve and one I'm glad I don't have to figure out. There is so much complexity in these issues.

Whole thing is just rediculous. It was called the" Boy Scouts" for a reason, same reason as the the other ones called "Girl Scouts". And why would a little girl or her parents want her to join the boy scouts? Just to make a stink about it? What is there to gain? Just dumb.
