Oh this is too delicious. It’s okay to be a Girl Scout!
Screengrab from the World Organization of the Scout Movement (WOSM) on November 13, 2018. Notice anything about the header photograph?
This poster by an unknown shitlord was ahead of its time. In 1969, the Sexual Revolution was in, ummm, full swing.
But BSA Corp’s stupid Improved Scouting Program, intended to sex-integrate boy scouting along with sexually liberated Europe, wouldn’t be foisted on America’s boys for another three years.
Girl Scouts sued the poster’s publisher to make them destroy it and pay a million bucks for pin money.
The judge was an admitted aficionado of girl scout cookies.
They lost anyway.
Yes, adding tens of thousands of junior feminist GoGrrlz and tomboys — and their Second Wave feminist “PhD moms” with a Social Justice chip on their pocket flap — is the smart thing for BSA Corp. to do in the age of “Pound MeToo.”
It will definitively end the sexual abuse of young boys in the Boy Scouts.

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (CN) – Claiming the youth organization was infiltrated by pedophiles, an Arkansas man filed a lawsuit saying the Boy Scouts allowed a scout leader accused of sexually assaulting boys in Georgia to relocate and abuse him several years later.
“Since its inception, [the Boy Scouts of America] aggressively marketed the wholesomeness and safety of its programs to the American public,” the complaint states. “Simultaneously, BSA concealed from scouts and their parents BSA’s certain knowledge that pedophiles had been infiltrating BSA in large numbers for many years.”The complaint, filed Wednesday in Pulaski County Circuit Court, claims the way the Boy Scouts tried to identify sexual abusers within its organization by keeping allegations a secret and discouraging police involvement led to Samuel Otts abusing William Stevens eight times in 1979 and 1980.
Otts helped lead a troop of scouts that met at the Salvation Army in Hot Springs, Arkansas, when Stevens was in his preteens, according to the lawsuit filed by lead attorney Joshua Gillespie of Green & Gillespie.
The suit seeks compensatory damages from the Boy Scouts of America and the Quapaw Area Council for claims of negligence and fraud.
While the statute of limitations has typically long passed for those types of claims, Gillispie wrote in the complaint that the Boy Scouts fraudulently concealed their actions from Stevens.
Founded in 1910 by the American media magnate and explorer William D. Boyce, the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) provided a rite of passage to adulthood for over 100 million young men throughout its history.
According to biographer Janice Petterchak, Boyce structured his organization around particular ‘character-building’ attributes – like civic duty, patriotism and self-reliance – that he believed were crucial for “making men.”
William D. Boyce is certainly turning in his grave today.
Mike Surbaugh hates your boys, America. He wants them to be girls and he wants your girls to be boys.
To the devil with Mike Surbaugh. I wonder if he’s into cheese pizza and walnut sauce.
