The Boy Scouts of America said on Monday the group would begin accepting transgender boys, bucking its more than a century-old practice of using the gender stated on a birth certificate to determine eligibility. "Starting today, we will accept and register youth in the Cub and Boy Scout programs based on the gender identity indicated on the application," Boy Scouts of America communications director Effie Delimarkos said in an emailed statement. Delimarkos' cited shifting definitions of gender under state laws, which can "vary widely from state to state," in explaining the change.

The Jamboree will never be the same.
Boy Scouts have a congressional charter - why should they give 2 spits about any state ?
Hours and hours I spent with my sons in BSA ... how could any father today support such an organization? Liberals poison and ruin every good thing they touch.
It may be time to give up on BSA. Create a new organization to meet the needs that BSA was created to meet, and run with it. If the new organization lasts a century before being destroyed, that’s well worth the effort.
That didn't take long.
Most homosexuals were sexually abused as children.
They want to normalize their behavior to have better access to YOUR children.
It has been decided by my grandson’s parents that he will NOT be a member of the Boy Scouts in any way, shape or manner...
Here is an organization that is already up and running. Trail Life USA.
The issue here is not the organization but the laws that have been enacted to compel them to accept this problem.
This is the culture we as a society have allowed. These are the laws we permitted.
The BSA have gone down the crapper. It is sad how far they have fallen.
Rex Tillerson headed up the Boy Scouts when homosexuality was herded in.
I wish him well, but this is the logical consequence of his actions then.
We are in Los Angeles.
Off topic: I did board of review for a Tenderfoot rank advancement last week. We were asking him about school, chores, etc. He informed us that he "doesn't do chores, the maid does them."
He failed. Not because of that. He couldn't recite the scout oath.
So, the answer these days is you just don’t have your kids in any sort of “organization”. Instead, here, a Playstation 4...have at it...
My kids are on vid games, my wife spends every waking hour on Facebook.
Me, I’m a 49 yr old dirt bike fiend..in the woods trying to kill myself weekly.
Let it die.
The Boy Scouts of America is dead to me.
It is very disappointing to see the BSA taking action to support someone with a treatable mental disorder. I do not see how that helps a child with gender confusion.
They should talk to Ben Carson or Johns Hopkins, or do their own research instead of blindly following orders of the LGBT crowd.
Sick sick sick. Virtue signaling on the backs of the young and innocent.
It is sad that so many boys will not have the same experience I had in Boy Scouts and similarly the wonderful time my son had. BSA is in its final days. Makes me sad.
