I'd bet $5 National will eventually crack down on those Boy Scout troops.

@RememberSchiff

check out the Scout Me In resources here

https://www.scouting.org/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/Scout-Me-In-and-Scouts-BSA.pdf

no mention of Boy Scouts after February 1. Youth that age will say “I am a Scout.” 

Thanks for link.  Yes "I am a Scout" , but there is no mention that a scout CANNOT say they are a "Boy Scout"

You are probably right. Of course they never cracked down on rogue packs full of tag along girls “unofficially” earning badges, and they never cracked down on rogue troops with tag along girls on outings...but that’s different.🙄

So then what do girls call themselves?  Just Scouts? girl Scouts with a lower case g?

They could say they are a Boy Scout but there will not be a Boy Scout program

According to the new marketing material, girls would just call themselves Scouts

I get you are upset, but I think we should focus more on our scout program and less on names.

Maybe you don't have to face 100 parents who will be asking this question and expecting an answer, but I'd like to know the answer so I can provide it.  

The program isn't changing, so there really isn't anything to focus on other than "it's not changing" 

I don't understand why you can't provide answers, or if you don't have concrete answers, at the very least acknowledge it's something that some people will want an answer for and just allow for discourse on what the answers may be.  

 

This thread is literally about "names", it's not about program, it's about "names".  Asking about them seems fairly on topic.

But if you can't get the brand out there concisely and effectively, then the program doesn't matter as people will (rightly) assume that you can't get that together, either.

Agree as we have seen before again and again.

So if a chartering organization and troop wish to continue with a boys only program, that is inane and childish?

If the name is Scouts BSA, then what does the 'S" in BSA stand for ?  don't want to be redundant

It stands for Scouts, just like always.  Its use in this case is to differentiate Scouts in the BSA from Scouts in the GSUSA.
