The Washington Post recently ran a major news story that has to make us pause. The headline: “Scouts recruitment war raises questions about what it means to be a girl or a boy.”
The battle is going to the nation’s highest courts with the two litigants being the Boy Scouts of America the Girl Scouts, of all things.
It all started with an ad from the Boy Scouts stating that a church in Virginia would be chartering “one of our Girl Scouts BSA Troops.”
As Samantha Schmidt reports, the Girl Scouts then filed a lawsuit against the Boy Scouts, arguing trademark infringement.
Listen to this next sentence: “The battle between the youth programs echoes a divide that has been playing out across many arenas of American life amid the #MeToo movement, raising fresh questions about what it means to be male or female in 2018.”
This article simply reflects the times better than just about anything I have read of late, sadly so.
