It's about time.

Despite living in a country where same-sex marriage is now legal in all 50 states, the Boy Scouts of America have had a controversial history of disallowing gay people into their organization.

It was a landmark decision when the Boy Scouts finally let gay children into their club, but they were still adamant about not allowing homosexual adults to take part in den leadership.

Well, that's all a thing of the past, because the National Executive Board for the org just voted to rectify the scandalous rule that's been in effect since they were founded in 1910.

And the best part?

The word of the day is SAD.

That's because one of Sesame Street's most longtime residents Maria is retiring after an amazing 44 years!

Maria — played by actress Sonia Manzano — joined the show way back in 1971, a year we're assured really existed, and not just on TV!

Sonia announced her retirement during an address at the American Library Association Annual Conference on Tuesday to both shock and grief from fans.

During her time on the Street, the Latina role model won 15 Emmys for her writing and was nominated twice for Outstanding Performer in a Children's Series for her time onscreen.

The next generation to watch Sesame Street will be a little worse off for not having her around. See some of her best moments through the years (below)!

The horror!

In an unprecedented move, 50 Girl Scouts descended upon the White House lawn on Tuesday, shocking America and making camp for the night.

No, this isn't some sort of coup — it's actually just the first time anyone's ever spent the night on the South Lawn!

President Barack Obama and Michelle Obama invited girls from West Virginia, Virginia, Washington, DC and Oklahoma to make history and teach them the ropes about all things scouting.

Michelle kicked off the event with an adorable introduction, saying:

"I really just wanted to formally welcome you to the White House. There it is, it's right there.

You're making history, this is something you can tell you kids and your grand kids, do you understand the impact of this day?"

Naturally, the 10 and 11-year-olds didn't quite understand how significant their sleepover actually was, but at least Michelle seemed to have fun!

The Girl Scouts Just Did The Most AMAZING Thing When A Donor Made An Anti-Transgender Demand!

| Filed under: InspirationAmazingStuff 4 KidzTransgenderLGBT

The Girl Scouts of Western Washington completely shut down an anti-transgender donor!

The Girl Scouts aren't afraid to shut down haters. Even haters who throw $100K their way!

Four years ago, the organization announced it is accepting of ALL girls, including transgender members. In May, when the American Family Association tried to ban "boys in skirts" from being scouts, the organization shut it down by reminding them that if a person identifies as a girl, that person is more than welcome among the troops.

Around that time, a donor gave the Girl Scouts of Western Washington $100 thousand, but under one very discriminatory condition:

"Please guarantee that our gift will not be used to support transgender girls. If you can't, please return the money."

Council CEO Megan Ferland returned the hefty donation, explaining that there's no place for intolerance in the organization:

"Girl Scouts is for every girl. And every girl should have the opportunity to be a Girl Scout if she wants to."

The unfortunate part about sending the money back is that Megan said that it could have given 500 disadvantaged girls the opportunity to go to summer camp.

So, the Girl Scouts of Western Washington started an Indiegogo fundraiser — appropriately titled #ForEveryGirl — to make back the $100k donation they returned.

Your Morning Cereal Is About To Get A LOT Less Colorful! General Mills Is Removing All Artificial Ingredients INCLUDING Dyes!

| Filed under: FoodHealthStuff 4 Kidz

No more Blue Moons and Purple Horseshoes?!

On Monday, General Mills announced that it will remove all artificial colors and flavors from its cereals!

Beginning with popular cereals like Trix, Cocoa Puffs and Reese's Puffs, the cereal titan expects 90 percent of its cereal to go natural by the end of 2016, and the remaining 10 percent to be free of artificial colors and flavors by 2017!

This decision seems to be following the trend that customers have been growing wary of processed foods, resulting in many food companies systematically ridding their products of ingredients that don't look natural.

Jim Murphy, president of General Mills U.S. cereal business, explained that customers don't want labels full of "colors with numbers and ingredients you can't pronounce." He explained:

"Consumers increasingly want the ingredient list for their cereal to look like what they pull out of their pantry."

We can expect colors like Red 40, Yellow 6, Blue 1 and other artificial dyes common in some cereals to be replaced by colors made from spices and fruit and vegetable juice concentrates!

Though removing artificial flavors isn't that easy for certain marshmallow-filled cereals like Lucky Charms and Count Chocula. Marshmallows are more difficult to reformulate the colors without changing the taste, texture, and appearance!

Let's hope the cereal company can keep their products just as colorful and tasty without any artificial ingredients.

If not, those kids might not be after those Lucky Charms for long!
