The haters have struck again but this time against the cute girl scouts who ruin our diets with their girl scout cookies. Okay, they do more than that and you really should check out there website to hear more and it’s all good, really.
The part of their website I’m referring to this time has to do with taking in transgender girls and entitled The Meaning of “Serving All Girls” . It’s quite amazing actually. The main points are summed up in the following paragraph:
If a girl is recognized by her family, school and community as a girl and lives culturally as a girl, Girl Scouts is an organization that can serve her in a setting that is both emotionally and physically safe. Inclusion of transgender girls is handled at a council level on a case by case basis, with the welfare and best interests of all members as a top priority.
There’s this group called The American Family Association who attack anyone who is pro-LGBT and are called a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center. Hate groups used to be defined as groups who used outright lies to attack or malign an entire class of people, typically for their immutable characteristics. The SPLC took out the lie part although the American Family Association certainly continues to do this. Just look at what they say in the article Girl Scouts Welcome Boys Who Dress as Girls:
This means girls in the organization will be forced to recognize and accept transgenderism as a normal lifestyle. Boys in skirts, boys in make-up and boys in tents will become a part of the program. This change will put young innocent girls at risk.
The American Family Association claims a boy just has to throw on a skirt to be accepted in the Girl Scouts while the Girl Scouts of the USA tells us the bar is certainly set a lot higher. To introduce some sanity into this discussion please read Transgender Girls Officially Welcomed Into Girl Scouts, People Get Angry and this paragraph in particular:
Listen. We live in a world where trans children are finding it easier to give up on life rather than deal with the craziness of a world which seems out to get them at every turn. We need to open up more inclusive spaces for them, not shut them out. If the Girl Scouts of America are trying to be inclusive of more girls, then so be it.
We don’t need hate groups to attack children who were born the wrong sex. The girls need our help and the American Family Association should be ashamed. However, I bet they sleep just fine at night smug in the fact that they attacked such children because the LGBT are evil. Bullchit!!!
Live long and prosper,
