Boy Scouts Will Now Begin Admitting Girl Scouts

As Iowahawk says:

1. Identify a respected institution

2. Kill it

3. Gut it

4. Wear its carcass as a skin suit, while demanding respect.

This isn't as bad as it may seem. While the Scouts will admit girls, each particular den will be all-boys or all-girls. (Or mostly; I assume there will be whatever-gender-you-identify-as-this-month caveat.)

The Boy Scouts of America announced Wednesday that girls will soon be allowed to become Cub Scouts and to earn the coveted rank of Eagle Scout, the organization’s highest honor...

The scouting board of directors voted unanimously to make the historic change in an organization that has been primarily for boys since its founding more than 100 years ago.

Starting next year, young girls can join Cub Scout units, known as dens. Local scouting organizations can choose to have dens for girls and dens for boys. "Cub Scout dens will be single-gender-- all boys or all girls," the organization said in a statement.
