Transgender Teens – Important Information For Transgender Teens
January 16, 2012 by staff
Transgender Teens – Important Information For Transgender Teens, A California teen is calling for a boycott of Girl Scout cookies to protest the inclusion of a 7-year-old transgender child in Colorado last year.
The protester, who wears a Girl Scout sash and identifies herself as Taylor, recorded an eight-minute video to argue that allowing a transgender child into the organization goes against scout values. Taylor urges people to refuse to buy Girl Scout cookies until the organization agrees to ban transgender members.
“Why is GSUSA willing to break its own safety rules and go against its own research findings to accomodate transgender boys?” Taylor said. “Unfortunately, I think it is because GSUSA cares more about promoting the desires of a small handful of people than it does my safety and the safety of my friends. And they are doing it with the money we earn for them by selling Girl Scout cookies.”
The Girl Scouts defended their policies.
“For 100 years, Girl Scouts has prided itself on being an inclusive organization serving girls from all walks of life. We handle cases involving transgender children on a case-by-case basis, with a focus on ensuring the welfare and best interests of the child in question and the other girls in the troop as our highest priority,” a Girl Scouts spokeswoman told the Daily News in a statement. “As a beloved American institution, the Girl Scout Cookie Program is a natural target for those seeking to draw attention to themselves or their cause. It’s important for everyone to know that nearly 100% of the proceeds from these sales stay in the local market and are used to fund programs for girls.”
