The Girl Scouts will be celebrating their 100th anniversary of their founding in Savannah, GA by Juliette “Daisy” Gordon Low this year.
But it’s shaping up to be a tumultuous and drama filled centennial year because of the renewed conservafool attacks on the organization.
Some of the conservafools have a problem with transchild Bobbi Montoya being admitted into a Colorado Girl Scout troop.
A transphobic troop leader in Covington, LA resigned from the organization and dissolved her troops she was leading.
Now we have more conservahatred and transphobia being pimped by an alleged Girl Scout named Taylor from Ventura County, California. She’s seeking to start a boycott of the cookie sale that pulls in $750 million annually because she has a problem with transgirls being admitted into the organization.
The right wingers ever since they failed to take over the Girl Scouts like they successfully did with the Boy Scouts have been hating on this organization for years. We liberal-progressive peeps and the rainbow community need to be supporting with our dollars an organization that has been under assault by the vast Right Wing Conspiracy, has had our backs and stood tall for us.
It’s time for us to stand tall for them and spend some money on cookies this year when the 2012 Girl Scout Cookie drive starts.
As for Little Miss Transphobe Taylor, you not only desperately need some science based information on trans people to get over your obvious transphobia, you need to review theGirl Scout Promise and The Girl Scout Law.
The Girl Scout Promise
On my honor, I will try:
To serve God and my country,
To help people at all times,
And to live by the Girl Scout Law.
The Girl Scout Law
I will do my best to be
honest and fair,
friendly and helpful,
considerate and caring,
courageous and strong, and
responsible for what I say and do,
respect myself and others,
use resources wisely,
make the world a better place, and
be a sister to every Girl Scout.
Taylor, pay particularly close attention to the last line of it in which it says you will be a sister to every Girl Scout.
Some of your Girl Scout sisters are trans and deserve the same dignity and respect for their humanity as you would demand for yourself.
Can’t think of a better way to spend $4 than to purchase some delicious cookies, help the Girl Scouts and piss off the conservative movement at the same time.
Hmm, may have to try the Savannah Smiles cookies this year in addition to tripling my usual order on my favorite Thin Mints and shortbread cookies.
