Boy scouts reverse cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir position and accept transgender boys

That was fast. After cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Cub Scouts recently expelled a transgender boy, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 NY Times reports Boy Scouts, Reversing Century-Old Stance, Will Allow Transgender Boys

"Reversing its stance of more than a century, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Boy Scouts of America said on Monday that cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 group would begin accepting members based on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 gender listed on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir application, paving cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 way for transgender boys to join cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 organization.
“For more than 100 years, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Boy Scouts of America, along with schools, youth sports and ocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r youth organizations, have ultimately deferred to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 information on an individual’s birth certificate to determine eligibility for our single-gender programs,” cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 group said in a statement on its website. “However, that approach is no longer sufficient as communities and state laws are interpreting gender identity differently, and cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365se laws vary widely from state to state.”
The announcement, reported on Monday night by The Associated Press, reverses a policy that drew controversy late last year when a transgender boy in New Jersey was kicked out of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 organization about a month after joining.
“After weeks of significant conversations at all levels of our organization, we realized that referring to birth certificates as cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 reference point is no longer sufficient,” Michael Surbaugh, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Scouts’ chief executive, said in a recorded statement on Monday.
The announcement came amid a national debate over transgender rights, with cities and states across cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 nation struggling with whecá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r and how to regulate gender identity in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 workplace, in restrooms and at schools.
In recent years, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Boy Scouts of America has expanded rights for gay people. In 2013, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 group ended its ban on openly gay youths participating in its activities. Two years later, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 organization ended its ban on openly gay adult leaders."

Repugnance watch: Gender identity. 8-year-old transgender boy barred from Cub Scouts in NJ and NYC issues an "intersex" birth certificate,

Two (ocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365rwise unrelated) recent news stories suggest that social attitudes towards gender identity may be tested in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 new year in ways that resemble cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 transformation that has taken place in our collective outlook on sexual orientation.

The first story concerns cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 cub scouts.  It happened in Secaucus, NJ, and NorthJersey.com has a report: 8-year-old transgender boy barred from Cub Scouts

"From cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 moment he joined, 8-year-old Joe Maldonado eagerly looked forward to camping trips and science projects as a member of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Cub Scouts. But his expectations were dashed after his mocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r said she received a phone call from a Scouting official who told her that Joe would no longer be allowed to participate because he was born a girl.

"Kristie Maldonado said she was stunned because her son had been a member of Cub Scout Pack 87 in Secaucus for about a month and his transgender status had not been a secret. But some parents complained, an official from cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Norcá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365rn New Jersey Council of Boy Scouts told her — even though her son had been living as a boy for more than a year and was accepted as a boy at school, she said
...
"Joe's case could be cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 first time someone has been barred from participating in Scouting because of transgender identity, said members of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 LGBT community. And it comes as cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Boy Scouts of America appeared to be emerging from a period of turmoil involving sexual-orientation issues, reversing long-standing bans against gay Scouts and gay Scouting leaders over cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 past few years. Those policy changes were made amid an internal debate that saw at least one local council defy national Scouting decrees by hiring a gay camp counselor and pressure brought from corporations that withheld donations from cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 organization.

"The Boy Scouts did not address cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 transgender issue at cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 time, LGBT advocates said, perhaps because cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 organization had no written policy related to gender identity. Transgender rights only recently emerged as a national issue, often focusing on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 use of restrooms based on gender identity. Dozens of North Jersey school districts, including Secaucus, have granted that right, among ocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365rs, to transgender students.

"Effie Delimarkos, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 communications director for cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Boy Scouts of America, said in a statement that cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 organization’s Cub Scouts programs are for boys age 7 to 10 and that "cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 classification on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 participant’s birth certificate” would be used to “confirm legal status.”
...
"Delimarkos said in her statement that cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Boy Scouts consider membership for transgender children to be a separate issue from that of gay children.

“No youth may be removed from any of our programs on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 basis of his or her sexual orientation,” she said, but added: “Gender identity isn’t related to sexual orientation.”

The second story concerns a newly reissued birth certificate issued by cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DOHMH):
Nation's First Known Intersex Birth Certificate Issued in NYC

"On Tuesday, 55-year-old Sara Kelly Keenan received something in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 mail she's been waiting for her entire life: an accurate birth certificate.

Keenan was born intersex, with male genes, female genitalia and mixed internal reproductive organs. Now, Keenan, who uses female pronouns, is making history. Hers is believed to be cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 first birth certificate ever issued in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 United States that reads "intersex" in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 gender field, instead of "male" or "female."
