Girl Scout Launches Cookie Boycott Campaign After Organization's Inclusion Of Transgender Child thoughts


Response to GSUSA 'Boycott Cookies' Video

Reports say a California based teen is hoping to spearhead a national boycott of Girl Scout cookies after the organization's controversial decision to admit a 7-year-old transgender child to a Colorado troop this past fall.It was said the girl who has been identified only as Taylor from Ventura County, Calif appears in a video in which she claims her organization is using proceeds from sales of the popular cookies to "promote the desires of a small handful of people."
"Right now, Girl Scouts of the U.S.A...is not being honest with us girls, its troops, its leaders, its parents or the American public," Taylor, who claims to have been a Girl Scout for eight years, says in the clip according to reports. "Girl Scouts describes itself as an all-girl experience. With that label, families trust that the girls will be in an environment that is not only nurturing and sensitive to girls' needs, but also safe for girls."Reports say she goes on to note, "I am asking you to take action with me and boycott Girl Scout Cookies." The video eventually concludes with a tagline for the Honest Girl Scouts site, which describes itself as a group "concerned with the alarming choices GSUSA has been making," and "advocating for a change back to simply building girls of good character."Last fall's decision to admit Bobby Montoya after initially excluding her has already been met with considerable controversy. In December, three Louisiana-based leaders resigned and dissolved their troops in the wake of the incident, with one calling it "an almost dangerous situation" for children, according to reports.At the time, the Girl Scouts of Colorado released a statement through the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD), noting, "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."After confessing to having difficulty switching from male to female pronouns when discussing her child, Montoya's mother defended her daughter saying, "I believe he was born in the wrong body...no one would know he's a boy unless they pulled his pants down." reports say
