There is one Girl Scout who is not going to win the cookie selling contest this year. A California girl, who has only been identified as Taylor, is urging the country to boycott Girl Scout Cookies. She wants to press the boycott over the Girl Scout’s inclusion of a transgendered scout.
Taylor said in her YouTube video that she has been a girl scout for more than 8 years. She is protesting the scouts using the proceeds of the sale of the cookies to promote the values of a few people over the majority.
She also was quoted as saying,
“Right now, Girl Scouts of the U.S.A…is not being honest with us girls, its troops, its leaders, its parents or the American public. Girl Scouts describes itself as an all-girl experience. With that label, families trust that the girls will be in an environment that is not only nurturing and sensitive to girls’ needs, but also safe for girls. I am asking you to take action with me and boycott Girl Scout Cookies.”
The video shows her pitching her own website, Honest Girl Scouts site, which is advocating for the Girl Scouts of America to go back to its roots and “advocating for a change back to simply building girls of good character.”.
The decision of the Girl Scouts of America to admit Bobby Montoya has met with considerable controversy. Several southern scout troupes have dissolved their charters in protest. While Colorado troupes have been very supportive releasing the following statement.
The Statement read,
“If a child identifies as a girl and the child’s family presents her as a girl, Girl Scouts of Colorado welcomes her as a Girl Scout.”
Do you think a child should be admitted to the Girl Scouts if physically he is a boy?
