    The Girl Scouts of the United States of America filed a trademark infringement lawsuit against the Boy Scouts of America on Tuesday after the Boy Scouts decided to drop “Boy” from its program and start welcoming older girls.

    According to the complaint, the Boy Scouts do not have a monopoly over such terms as “scouts” or “scouting,” and its decision to rebrand itself Scouts BSA will erode the Girl Scouts brand and “marginalize” their activities.

    The Girl Scouts said there has already been confusion, with families, schools and communities throughout the United States already told it no longer exists or had merged with the Boy Scouts.

    “Only GSUSA has the right to use the Girl Scouts and Scouts trademarks with leadership development services for girls,” according to the complaint filed in federal court in Manhattan.

    Officials from the Boy Scouts did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

    The Boy Scouts, which accepts children who are 11 to 17 years old, announced the name change in May, in connection with its new Scout Me In campaign featuring boys and girls.

    The lawsuit seeks a permanent injunction against trademark infringement and a variety of damages for the alleged dilution of the Girl Scouts trademark.

    Lol that’s some weak sauce intellectual property shit. The IP lawyers I know laughed at the dilution of trademark argument. That’s like white fraternities trying to sue Alphas, Kappas et al because the traditional black Greek letter orgs allow white members.

    “We demand equality now!! ... except when you actually practice it then we want segregation...don’t be fucking with our cookie money!!!!”

    I can't even deal man. I obviously love the advancements we've made as a society and all that, but I HATE that it now allows everyone to have a fukn platform. I was a cub scout (hoodrat chapter...don't judge) and it was great to have buddies w/o girls around. They have their own scouts. Why do we have to redefine EVERYTHING, man (..or person?!)?!

    Btw, have any of yall ever had a girl scout ever come up to yall peddling cookies? I never have, and I only ate them because my mom ordered from coworkers. That's how I used to win ALL of the candy sales as a kid! My mom would just take the order form to work and I got to be a lazy sack of shit kid.

    this is not about progress at all. boy scout membership has plummeted for years. this is their desperate attempt to survive and gain members by co-opting the language of inclusion. it's like when white ppl / realtors high jack diversity lingo to make gentrifying an all blk neighborhood seem like racial progress. rather than confronting one of its core problems -- long-standing exclusion of low income and blk and latino boys -- boy scouts prefers to open up its doors to even more white ppl: girls. don't be mistaken: what they are doing has nothing to do with the intention of gender equality and inclusion. i hope girl scouts beats the hell out of them in court.

    Ok. Tell em how you really feel bro! Lol. I certainly don't/didn't know the details, and was just speaking from the place of someone who is tired of hearing about the blurring of gender lines. Thanks for the post.

    Your point about the decline and desperation of the national "boy scout" organization is on point. We diverge in opinion on attributing anything positive to the national "girl scout" organizations and their motives in this lawsuit. They have a slick operation, a billion dollar volunteer organization. If they were a private company, their taskmasters would have been locked up years ago for violation of child labor laws. The thing is if the "girl scouts" took the time, money, or effort to turn their aggressive cookie fundraising into teaching modern entrepreneurship for the young scouts it could be justifiable. As it is, this is just two economic behemoths fighting over potential child labor forces, i can't get emotional over either. The mafia would be shooting this out on the streets, the corps just shoot in court with writs and shit.
