A couple of days ago, we heard that the University of Texas at Austin was developing a new program at their mental health counselling facility that would essentially treat “masculinity” as a mental health problem. According to the geniuses at UT Austin, masculinity is to blame for violence, suicide, and all manner of other evils in the world and, as such, it must be plucked out at the root with some good old fashioned re-programming.
While we’re at it, why don’t we just get rid of the Boy Sco—
It turns out that we’re doing exactly that. After more than 100 years, the Boy Scouts of America have finally become too politically incorrect for today’s woke society. Now they’ll be known as Scouts BSA. The decision to change the name was announced Wednesday and comes on the heels of the organization’s decision to allow transgender kids, girls, and large dogs into the membership rolls. Okay, we’re not sure about that last one, but it’s probably only a matter of time. Luckily, by choosing the unassuming and inclusive name “Scouts BSA,” the organization won’t have to change it again when they decide to invite Fido to become a Tiger Cub.
OMG, are you comparing girls and transgender kids to DOGS? How dare you!
No, but we are saying that perhaps there is a strong purpose for having a little bit of exclusivity when it comes to organizations like the Boy Scouts. We’re presuming that maybe – just maybe – there is some value in having , cough cough, safe spaces where boys can get together, learn to tie knots, and perhaps learn a little bit about what it is to be a man. And yeah, maybe there’s value in having Girl Scouts, Transgender Scouts, or even Dog Scouts. So why throw them all together under the same roof and strip away everything that’s different about these various groups?
Well, that’s just the point. This is a move in subservience to feminism and the LGBT Army (to the extent these two factions are different). To these groups, the only way to achieve equality is to invade the spaces inhabited by “traditional” rules, trash them until they submit, and then belatedly admit (through their actions if not their words) that they never cared that much about joining in the first place. But by then, of course, the damage is done.
Unfortunately, we were probably wrong about this new name surviving in perpetuity, because it won’t be long before the word “America” is even more problematic than the word “boy.”
Then, we suppose, the organization will have to simply become Scouts BS.
