The Boy Scouts of America have opened the door to transgender kids. A spokesperson confirmed that effective immediately, registration for Cub and Boy Scout programs will be based on gender identity as indicated on the application. In the past, the individual's birth certificate was used to determine eligibility. The organization says that the change will better fit with state laws which are now interpreting gender identity differently from state to state.
