Looks like someone isn’t getting their “tolerance” badge: This 14-year-old Girl Scout from California is calling for the boycott of her own group for allowing a transgender child to serve as a Girl Scout, which is fairly progressive for the group, but something they only allowed after initially denying the child. Progress comes with resistance, guys; here’s the resistance. source
Do not “not support” Girl Scouts because of this video.
Once this girl attends a college course on gender studies, she may be learn that gender is how one identifies themselves and NOT their sexual biological organs. If one identifies as a female (aka as the girl gender), she will identify with the same experiences and problems that this girl is stating.
Yes, GSUSA should protect the young women in this program from any male that may try to use this postion to join for motives of sexual abuse or harassment. However, I really don’t want them to prevent ANY person that identifies as a women to be prohibited from having the experiences, knowledge, and social awareness that this program offers. This program helps all young women excell as an adult by leaning leadership and value driven decisions (which should and do vary per person). This organization does not solely align themselves
with only religious base organization to allow for each troop to accept and grow with their own set of values and social norms. That is healthy since all of us view the world differently, and that’s is part of our culture.
I hope that Girl Scouts sticks with their position. As a former Girl Scout, I want to see the program I advocate for be an organization that allows ALL females to be a part of it.
PLEASE continue to support the Girl Scout program by purchasing cookies. This issue is a very small subset of what this programs offers as a whole.
This young women should be honored for doing what Scouting teaches- sticking up for your beliefs, connecting with others, and teaching others. I am glad she had learned those key skills.
However, please remember that Girl Scouts empowers women, gives girls a chance to be leaders with a voice, and become the person that they want to be regardless of any obstacle that may getting the way. Don’t let this program suffer because they are all inclusive of the female gender.
