16417 Girl Scouts sue Boy Scouts over planned name change
https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-46119393

The Girl Scouts of the United States of America have filed a lawsuit against the Boy Scouts of America for dropping "boy" from the scout group's name.

The Boy Scouts of America announced in May they would rename the Boy Scouts programme Scouts BSA as they prepare to allow girls as members.

But the Girl Scouts say the change could erode their brand, calling the move "uniquely damaging" to them.

Their lawsuit seeks damages and an injunction against trademark breaches.

"Only GSUSA has the right to use the Girl Scouts and Scouts trademarks with leadership development services for girls," papers filed in a Manhattan federal court said.

The switch could "marginalise" the Girl Scouts, the complaint reads. It reportedly says the switch has already caused confusion, with some believing their organisation had merged with the Boy Scouts.

Which raises the question of why they haven't. Of course, anyone who's ever been involved in such an organisation knows the answer only too well.

I'm utterly bewildered as to why this is an issue at all.

Yeah, but we don't have Girl Scout troops in direct competition with them. The Girl Guides might still be a thing, though I haven't checked. When I was a Venture Scout, at that point the Scouts and the Girl Guides fused and it made sense, because you needed to be 17 to be a Venture Scout so camping shenanigans were between the individuals and were unable to damage the Scout movement. 15 year old boys and girls camping together was already problematic enough when the Guides were camping up Beecraigs at the same time as us, I lost my virginity in those woods, never mind them sleeping in the same pitch together and having most of the day to go "orienteering" to buy fags and booze together.

It was remarkably easy before girls were involved to say "Leader, we're making day packs and heading up The Knock so anon can get his orienteering badge, that cool?" and we would meet the Guides on the way.

It's Thursday, so there was probably a mass shooting of some kind in the US.

Well maybe if you added some prayers to those thoughts you might actually achieve something!
