California teen spearheads Girl Scouts boycott after the club allows transgender girl to joinBreaking News, Top Highlights Wednesday, January 11th, 2012
A teen known only by the name Taylor is calling for all American families to boycott the popular organization Girl Scouts after the club allowed a 7-year-old transgender child into its Colorado troop last fall, World News Daily is reporting.
“I’ve been a girl scout for 8 years… I have been taught by Girl Scouts to advocate for my beliefs and to discover, connect, and take action when I see something I want to change something in the world… What I want to help change is Girl Scouts.”
“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,” she says in the video.
Taylor adds: “Did you know that Girl Scouts admitted they allowed transgender boys?”
The boycott video comes in wake of the admittance of Bobby Montoya, a transgender girl in Colorado. Girl Scouts allowed Montoya to join the club after her mother said she identified more toward a girl rather than to her male biological makeup.
“Girl Scouts admits that different genders can enter Girl Scouts… any boy can join girl scouts… but the real question is why is GSUSA willing to break their only rules?… I ask all Girl Scouts who want a true all-girl experience not to sell any cookies until GSUSA addresses our concerns.”
