Bobby Montoya Allowed Girl Scouts

Bobby Montoya Allowed Girl Scouts, Felisa Archuleta, whose son was rejected by a Denver Girl Scout troop because he has “boy parts”, said he is waiting for an official call – and an apology – from the Girl Scouts of Colorado.
Archuleta asked a local troop leader, if your child transsexuals may join the Girl Scouts, but was initially rejected. Later, a supervisor of the Girl Scouts of Colorado recognized that the organization include the 7 years of age. However, Archuleta is still awaiting final word.
“They called me directly,” said Archuleta. “When I talked to the top [person], Bobby told me he wants to be in Girl Scouts, but having a different leader. I never called and said he would only [local leader who rejected] the sensitivity training.”
Bobby Montoya was born with male genitalia but has been convinced since the age of 2, which is a girl. His biggest concern, said his mother, it will need to change your name.
“I think he was born in the wrong body,” said Archuleta, who admitted he still has difficulty moving from male to female pronouns when talking about his son.
“I think Bobby will grow out of it,” he said. “For birthdays, he asked for horses. I had a princess birthday, and last year when he was 7, he had a birthday Rapunzel. I basically supported him.”
Three weeks ago, Archuleta came to a leader of the local Girl Scouts who identified himself only as “Maria” and asked Bobby if he could join the troop. Bobby’s mother said the leader of the troop “humiliated” Bobby, and dissolved in tears.
The Girl Scouts of Colorado has said publicly that he supports transgendered children, and issued a statement this week saying the group is “an inclusive organization.”
The statement, released by the Gay Le****n Alliance Against Defamation & says: “If a child is identified as a child and the child’s family is presented as a girl, Girl Scouts of Colorado welcomes you as one of the Girl Scouts “.
Girl Scouts of Colorado also said in its statement that it is “reaching the excluded child’s family and altered its training programs for all children are supported.”
Archuleta said he does not know what the Girl Scouts intend to do with Bobby and the leader. He also wondered why “is a very important thing.
“She dresses like a girl, and you can not say it’s a girl?” his mother said. “But the leader of the Girl Scouts said we can not join because it has” boy parts .’… But no one knows who is a child, unless your pants pulled down. ”
Archuleta said troop leader was also asked: “Why call it a boy or a girl?” referring to Bobby. “I said, ‘Excuse me?” Then she fixed it and said, ‘Bobby. You can see that the name of a child, and everyone knows he is a child. ”
After hearing that exchange, Bobby was “crying,” said Archuleta. “He asked, ‘Do I have to change my name?” They were just making s’mores! She humiliated him in front of everyone. In fact, I had to stop at his words. He was right there. I told Bobby to go wait in the hallway. ”
Bobby has told her mother believed she was a girl since I was very young, said Archuleta. “He just liked girlie things. When I was 4 or 5, I asked, ‘Why do not you make me a girl?”
Until now, Bobby is dressed as a child in school, but he wore a dress to school one day and laughed, said Archuleta. From the confrontation with the Girl Scouts, Bobby has identified and dressed as a girl in public.
