The Boy Scouts Announce That They Will Allow TRANSGENDER Boys To Join

Boy Scouts Open Doors To Transgenders

On Monday the Boy Scouts announced, “Starting today, we will accept and register youth in the Cub and Boy Scout programs based on the gender identity indicated on the application.”

The move by the Boy Scouts is likely to receive a wide range of responses from the American public.

From The New York Post:

The Boy Scouts of America says it will allow transgender children who identify as boys to enroll in its boys only programs.

The organization announced Monday that it had made the decision to base enrollment in boys only programs on the gender a child or parent lists on the application to become a scout. The organization had previously held a policy that relied on the gender listed on a child’s birth certificate.

A transgender child in Secaucus, New Jersey, was asked late last year to leave his Scout troop after parents and leaders found out he is transgender.
