Girls will be able to work toward Eagle Scout rank for the first time, an achievement previously reserved for Boy Scouts.
The prestigious ranking is awarded to Scouts who complete a set of rigorous requirements by their 18th birthday. It can be listed on college applications and résumés.
Because tomboy resumes.
We need moar tomboys. God help our soon to be pussywhipped sons.

I myself do note care for this ruling, If its a group of Girls that are off on there own separate from the Boy’s unless an activity or camparoo, Then they should actually be in Girl Scouts and have them change their rules, that both clubs be allowed for the jamborees and other activities and keep both clubs like they were designed to be and do things to Boost up each child by peers like themselves, Then when there older, well thats when they have ROTC, i just think there to young to mingle, but i also believe they should also have access to make a car out of wood, camping, but The clubs themselves should accommodate those things.

I guess that since the Boy Scouts no longer teach boys how to be men it wouldn’t hurt to let the girls in.
Starting this Friday, February 1, Falmouth girls can start earning Boy Scout adges. February 1 marks the renaming of the Boy Scouts of America “Boy Scouts” program to “Scouts BSA” and the incorporation of all-girl troops.
Troop 137 in Falmouth will be part of a national wave of all-girls troops joining Scouts BSA.
They aim to offer girls the same opportunities that have been afforded to boys through the Boy Scouts program, said Diane M. Mahoney, Troop 137’s Scoutmaster.
About 15 girls have already expressed interest in the program, which serves girls from ages 11 through 17.
The girls-only troop will function like other all-male troops in Falmouth. The girls will work toward the same ranks and badges, following the same handbook.
