There could be an entirely separate conversation here about an 8-year-old self-identifying as anything other than an 8-year-old, but let’s leave that for another day. Whenever I see one of these kinds of stories I suspect activist parents lurking in the background and using their children. The Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts are an easy target for any progressives trying to gin up some victimization, after all. They are practically the wedding cake bakers of the kid world. Maybe I’m wrong on this once.
