As we predicted back in May, the Boy Scouts’ announcement didn’t sit well with the Girl Scouts. Now a legal fight over gender-based branding rights is brewing.
It’s ironic that, in the name of inclusivity, the BSA has effectively ignored the important distinctions between the sexes. When the name that once served to clearly define the focus of an organization is no longer applicable due to fundamental changes in the very nature of the organization, it might help be helpful to no longer claim the name. It’s false advertising.
The Boy Scouts of America issued a statement saying the lawsuit was under review, adding, “We applaud every organization that builds character and leadership in children, including the Girl Scouts of the USA, and believe there is an opportunity for both organizations to serve girls and boys in our communities.” Well, if both organizations decided to allow both boys and girls to participate, why not merge, rebrand as The Scouts, and remove gender distinctions entirely? Then everyone would be happy, right?
