Teen asks for boycott of Girl Scout cookies over transgender controversy

|

Screen grab from the teen’s video (Gothamist)

The debate over a transgender youth joining the Girl Scouts has flared up again, and now your Thin Mints are at stake.

Back in October, transgender 7-year-old Bobby Montoya was first rejected, then eventually accepted by a Denver Girl Scout troop. Now, a group calling itself Honest Girl Scouts has published a web site and issued statements decrying the move.

The most controversial statement came in the form of a nearly 8-minute YouTube video message from a California teen Girl Scout. The video has since been made private on YouTube. But the Christian Post published this excerpt from the teen’s missive:

“Why is GSUSA willing to break its own safety rules and go against its own Research Institute findings to accommodate transgender boys?” the girl asks. “Unfortunately, I think it is because GSUSA cares more about promoting the desires of a small handful of people than it does for my safety and the safety of my friends and sister Girl Scouts.”

According to Gothamist:

She accuses the group of “not being honest” with her, her family, her Scout sisters, and the American public, makes the case that “it’s not safe to hide boys in Girl Scouts.”

Should the Girl Scouts bow to the pressure? And is it even possible to boycott Girl Scout cookies?

    “it’s not safe to hide boys in Girl Scouts.”

    It’s safe if one uses a condom.
