    For Greater Inclusivity, Boy Scouts Of America Removes Every Word In Name Except ‘Of’

    IRVING, TX — In a step toward greater inclusion, The Boy Scouts Of America announced this week that it will be just going by “Of” from here on out.

    “We realized our name had a lot of problematic terms, like ‘Boy,’ ‘Scouts,’ and ‘America’ in it,” Scouting executive Tim Galbraith told reporters. “We decided ‘Of’ was much more inclusive and pinpoints what scouting, I mean, um… ‘of-ing’ really means. Go Of!”

    Traditionally an all-boys organization designed to foster rugged, masculine patriotism and service in young men, scouting has come under fire in recent years for not including girls, trans-girls, trans-boys, and two-spirit genderqueer child drag queen polycules. Leaders say the name change showcases ‘Of’s’ commitment to transitioning itself from a beneficial program for young men into just another watered-down all-gender after-school program run by communist weirdos.
