The Boy Scouts of America announced on Wednesday that it would start allowing girls to join some of its programs and to rise through the ranks to become Eagle Scouts.

Even though boys and girls would have separate programs within the overall scouting organization -- the organizations board of directors emphasized that all organizations "will be single-gender — all boys or all girls" -- the move still angered conservatives who were incensed to see young women being allowed to join what used to be an all-boys club.

The reactions ranged from being mildly perturbed to declaring the decision to be the "END OF SOCIETY AS WE KNOW IT." Check out some top responses below.
