One bigoted Girl Scout is asking you to boycott Girl Scouts of the United States of America (GSUSA) because they have the audacity to be tolerant and inclusive.
After controversy arose over the potential admission of Colorado 7-year-old Bobby Montoya last month, The Girl Scouts of Colorado released a statement explaining, “We accept all girls in kindergarten through 12th grade as members. 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.”
And Taylor the Girl Scout will not stand for this! Because apparently boys all over the country are pretending to be girls just to sneak into the GS Secret Lair of Girliness to get girl badges or some shit and that’s just downright unacceptable. Because… penis or something, I guess.
Suddenly, Thin Mints never sounded so delicious (and Thin Mints pretty much always sound delicious.)
An anti-boycott is in order not only to show Tyler that this kind of bigotry is unacceptable but also to support an organization that does great work and publicly acknowledges and supports transgendered children. (Are you listening, Boy Scouts?)
So go buy them. By the gross.
(ETA: Sasha pointed out in the comments that vegans do not have to opt out of their support. EcoVeganGirl has a list of vegan Girl Scout cookies. Girl Scouts, is there anyone you’re not accepting and supportive of?)
Go Girl Scouts!
