Girl Scout Drama Over Transgender Inclusion

Posted By on Thu, Jan 12, 2012 at 11:00 AM

A teenage Girl Scout from Ventura County, California has kicked off a bit of controversy by recording a video asking for the boycott of the organization's famous cookies, due to a Colorado troop's admission of a transgender child in November of 2011, and now a Houston-based "pro-family" group called "Honest Girl Scouts" has jumped in with a number of other complaints as well, including claiming the Girl Scouts promote a "pro-abortion mindset". It would be nice if we could find, as people, something that we wouldn't have to politicize and argue about. I think I'm on the side of the Girl Scouts here (gender is a tricky thing and I'd rather err on the side of being inclusive, rather than exclusive), but it would be nice to buy a few boxes of cookies without it being a political act.
