Boy Scouts Goes Totally Woke, Announces Name Change For the Organization

The Boy Scouts of America (BSA) has made the decision to rebrand itself as Scouting America, effective February 8, 2025, marking its 115th anniversary, according to a new report from Fox News.

This move comes as the organization seeks to create a more inclusive environment for all, but it also follows a tumultuous period marked by a flood of sexual abuse claims that led to bankruptcy and a $2.46 billion settlement with some 82,000 former Boy Scouts.

Roger A. Krone, the president and CEO of BSA, stated, “Though our name will be new, our mission remains unchanged: we are committed to teaching young people to be prepared for life. This will be a simple but very important evolution as we seek to ensure that everyone feels welcome in scouting.”

However, the decision to rebrand and welcome all genders into the organization has been met with skepticism by some who believe that the Boy Scouts should remain a space exclusively for boys, just as the Girl Scouts is for girls.

Critics argue that this move towards inclusivity is a misguided attempt to be “woke” and will ultimately fail to revive the organization’s dwindling membership numbers.

The BSA has faced significant challenges in recent years, with membership falling from its peak of nearly 5 million in 1972 to around 2 million before the pandemic.

The organization has undergone seismic changes, such as allowing gay youth in 2013, ending the ban on gay adult leaders in 2015, and welcoming girls into the Cub Scouts and the flagship Boy Scout program (renamed Scouts BSA) in 2018 and 2019, respectively.

It is our opinion that the BSA will never regain its former glory.

The sexual abuse scandal has tarnished the organization’s reputation, and the move towards gender inclusivity will alienate those who view the Boy Scouts as a traditional space for boys to learn valuable life skills and engage in outdoor activities.

While the BSA’s mission to provide young people with a safe environment to learn and grow is admirable, the decision to move away from its roots as a boys-only organization may ultimately prove to be a misstep that causes it to fail and disappear.
