Were the parents asked to provide a birth certificate? Was there anything in the application that stated that birth certificate gender must be indicated on the app?
No, the application asks what IS the person's sex, not what do they think or what they want it to be.
The application asks what IS the person's address and phone number, not what they think or what they want it to be.
As soon as one opens the flood gates, it is only a matter of time before BSA leadership will accept pedophiles because after all, these people love to work with children just like everyone else.
While one may think that pedophiles working with children unacceptable, I for one see no difference with that than giving young men free access to young girls' restrooms and locker rooms.
It just depends on whether one is the parent of a daughter or not.
