On the heels of the Boy Scouts of America announcing last fall that girls would be allowed into their ranks, girls are signing up in droves to do just that in Northern California.

In fact, Northern California’s Golden Empire Council of the Boy Scouts is anticipating 1,600 girls to become Boy Scouts by the end of 2019, KOVR-TV reported.

Case in point is a Girl Scout troop in Davis that also will be registering as a Boy Scout troop, the station said.

This writer’s perspective

As more and more moves come about to blur the lines between males and females within America’s most prominent institutions, the frog in the kettle continues to heat up — and there doesn’t appear to be an end in sight.

Particularly given the reaction by the Girl Scouts of America official last fall, one wonders if there’s any actual, practical point to girls becoming Boy Scouts apart from rabid cultural pressure to wallpaper over gender differences.

So what can be done? Given the gender-blurring push is starting earlier and earlier, it’s up to parents not on board with the shift to try doubly hard to reinforce to their children the beauty and strength — and differences — that exist within both males and females. There’s nothing wrong with those differences, and there never has been.

If enough parents today can decide “no more,” there may be a chance to stem the tide.
