The lengths people go to in order to further their own agendas. Using that little boy like a pawn to invade female only spaces is disgusting.

Nothing will get between me and the thin mints and tag-a-longs (I think those were the peanut butter ones?)

man, now i wish i could afford to buy girl scout cookies.

i was going to say:
"what would be really funny would be to put this girl back 100 years or whenever it was, and tell her she can't be a scout, because it's only for boys."
...except that this appears to be one of the miraculous exceptions. Boy Scouts USA was formed 1910, and Girls Scouts USA was formed 1911 or 12.

still, i agree with the people saying "it's probably someone else putting the girl up to it" (either telling her what to say directly, or telling her horrible things about LBGT people in general so she forms a bad opinion). most 7yo kids wouldn't know, or even care.
take a group of young children, mixed races and gender, and put them all together. they'll all get along fine until you start teaching them that some of them don't belong. prejudice and intolerance is something children have to be taught.

This won't keep me from buying my favorite cookies.

I'm a girl scout. This irreverent, but selling those cookies is so damn stupid. You have to pay for the cookies in order to sell them. They're not even that good imo.

Anyways. I'm pro lgbt. As long as she's happy, let her be happy. Stop the ignorance.

This will be the first year i'm buying cookies because my sister is a girl scout, and i would like to support the transgender-ed kid :'). nobody from all the churches or councils ever thought of how the little girl ( boy ) felt.

Scew the girl boycotting, GTFO out of the girlscouts if you don't like it.

Why subject yourself to 'unsafe' stuff if you don't like it? Common sense says GTFO out.

Asking them not to buy cookies is like asking people not to buy energy drinks because you have a co-worker you don't like that works there.

Seriously, GTFO girl and let the rest of the world enjoy the cookies.

Perhaps this makes me ignorant but I'm a little skeptical about how a seven year old can 'know' they are transgendered.

That said the girl encouraging the boycott has displayed a degree of ignorance and intolerance that would make me GLAD and even GLEEful to buy girl scout cookies. assuming they sold them in Canada.


on a related note: how come the boy scouts were forced to admit girls .. gosh .. must be a decade ago. but this girl can feel like her rights are violated because in her mind "the Girl scouts are not an 'all girl' enviroment?'

Swap out boy for girl the original quoted statements and the feminists would be burning this boycotting scout in effigy.

double standard much?

I know, right? They're 7, they shouldn't even know what transgender means at that age...

I wouldn't be so quick to judge. If only because I'm sure juvenile T-persons a new phenomena about which I am ignorant. The said, everything I DO know about developmental psych suggests 7 is too young to make such a commitment.

Who cares.

Tired of this stuff. Really. I don't even care to have an opinion about these matters, anymore.



I hope the girl scouts will pay for her to see an therapist, in the coming years.

Just don't FQWMYTHINMINTSORMYSAMOAS.

I know I know I'm replying to this late. But just real quick on the subject of how can a 7-year old girl know she's a girl... Well they say that one starts to pick up gender cues from the moment they're born. And at around age 6 even a child still believes maybe they'll wake up the next day as the other gender because children still don't understand that your gender is stragnent and what the doctor tells you (which isn't true ACTUALLY, but is the way that Western society views gender and therefore the way one must function unfortunately or they are deviant *aka trans). But should it even be concerning that she is a she at 7? The most that can happen is she will dress and act girly, which is all her choice because I'm sure some kids will make fun of her at school so she must really want it to go through with it. It isn't until puberty anywhere from 3-6 years later that it even matters and by then the child has had more room to grow and can obviously go back on their decision if they so choose. But really until puberty nothing matters for the physical... so why so concerned? Once puberty hits THEN she can choose to go one hormone blockers (which will just keep the body from experiencing puberty which gives the child even more time to decide) and THEN EVEN LATER she could finally choose to either go off the blockers and go thorugh male puberty or take estrogen and go through female puberty. She may be seven, but it really doesn't matter yet haha.

It's actually a seven year old boy who wants to be a girl. So it's the whole "No boys in girl scouts/no girls in boy scouts" issue at its core.
