The BSA earlier this year announced that it was changing its policy to allow trans boys to enrol in its programs and now they are going to reject gender markers at all and promise that birth certificates of the potential scouts won’t be checked anymore. BSA announced plans to allow girls to join its ranks and to progress up to the rank of Eagle Scout voting unanonymously to change the policy which existed for more than a century. The National Organisation for Women had urged the BSA to change its policy as the 15-year-old girl expressed her wish to join boy scouts as her older brother. “The Girl Scouts is a great organization, but it’s just not the program that I want to be part of. I think girls should just have the opportunity to be a member of any organization they want regardless of gender,” the girl said.
