On Wednesday, the Boy Scouts announced that for the first time in the organization's history, they'd be allowing girls to join.
The move was criticized by the leadership of the Girl Scouts, who feel that the decision undermines the Girl Scouts.
Nevertheless! The Boy Scouts plan to roll out admission to girls starting in 2018.
As expected, there were strong reactions on both sides. Like this one:
Some didn't seem to mind.
Some saw it as a move in the right direction.
And applauded the decision.
And even poked fun at the outrage.
There were jokes.
While others felt the Boy Scouts were stepping on the Girl Scout's toes.
And there was anger at the idea of the Boy Scouts changing a founding organizational policy.
It's not a big deal. Who cares, it's 2017 and gender is a construct.I can't believe they would destroy the Boy Scouts like that.I can't believe the Boy Scouts would compete with the Girl Scouts like that.This is a straight up abomination.I have some other complex range of emotions I'll explain in the comments.
