Boy Scouts are no more.

It’s now “Scouts BSA” to allow for girls. Not sure what the “B” stands for?

Another PC step for mankind in the wussification of the male species.  “Boy” has become as toxic as “Man.”

We can’t have young men – aka boys – prancing around in the woods at night in testosterone overload, especially during the Snipe Hunt hazing ritual of chasing the imaginary elusive creature, with the ingenues.

The former “boys” might even be tempted to think of adventures other than roasting marshmallows over the campfire.

Before you know it, the former “boys” might even develop an interest in guns and hunting. We can’t have them tracking down Bambi. Too primordial.

On the positive note, the girls will help the boys become more socialized, teach them  how to earn the knitting merit badge, become vegans and develop a taste for wild berries and tree-bark quiche.

Teddy Roosevelt must be turning in his grave.
