Mark your calendars for Feb. 13. That’s the day Girl Scout cookies start showing up in the hands of adorable uniformed girls and on tables in front of Safeway.
A girl named Taylor, living somewhere in California, doesn’t want you to buy any. She, and a whole hot mess of other bigots, have started a campaign against cookies because of the Girl Scouts USA’s stance on the inclusion of transgendered girls. It all started when the Girl Scouts of Colorado issued a statement about why they were accepting Bobby Montoya, a transgendered 7-year-old, into the organization.
“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.”
Taylor doesn’t like this one bit. She is petrified that some 18-year-old man is going to say he’s a girl in order to sneak into her tent and steal her special sash with the award-winning Fire Building badge.
Here’s her frightening video:
Update: The video has been made private. Sorry if you missed it. You can still read the ignorance here.
What a great reason to buy a shit-ton of Thin Mints.
