Girl Scouts Now Welcoming Transgender Boys
A new Girl Scouts of America policy extends membership to boys who identify as girls. In other words, this girls group is now embracing transgender boys.
"Girl Scouts is proud to be the premiere leadership organization for girls in the country. Placement of transgender youth is handled on a case-by-case basis, with the welfare and best interests of the child and the members of the troop/group in question a top priority," the group says in an FAQ on its website. "That said, if the child is recognized by the family and school/community as a girl and lives culturally as a girl, then Girl Scouts is an organization that can serve her in a setting that is both emotionally and physically safe."
This is more shocking than Boy Scouts avowing homosexuality, but be assured the same spirit is behind it. There's a over-abundantly clear move in the nation—and in the world—to scramble gender identity. Nowadays, Facebook lets you choose from 58 gender options—and we have un-ending alphabet soup acronyms like LGBTQQIP2SAA to help people communicate their sexuality. But moves like this one from the Girls Scouts of America push the envelope beyond the pale of personal preference.
"This means girls in the organization will be forced to recognize and accept transgenderism as a normal lifestyle. Boys in skirts, boys in make-up and boys in tents will become a part of the program. This change will put young, innocent girls at risk," says Tim Wildmon, president of the American Family Association. "Adults are willing to experiment on our kids—both the boys who are confused and the girls who will wonder why a boy in a dress is in the bathroom with them."
