    Link: Girl Scout Wants To Boycott The Girl Scouts. Why? - She`s pissed off at the Girl Scouts of America for allowing transgender boys in the Girl Scouts. Can`t please `em all.

    boy or girl?

    point made I think.

    Her safety? Because a guy who thinks he is and acts like a girl is very very dangerous.

    soo...we make a TGSoA? Isn`t that profiling or sexism or something?

    This girl needs to stop being close minded.

    I`m gonna buy a whole case this year just to spite this girl, her troop, and their bigot troop leader and parents.

    I was a girl scout for all 12 years and I would have welcomed a boy into the troop no problem, I was a tomboy so he/she would probably have been my best friend.

    @RobSwindol: They`re being dishonest because they quietly changed the rules to allow boys to join Girl Scouts. "regardless of... gender."

    @BritInvasion: You`re fine with 17 year old boys sleeping in a tent with the girls? K then, nothing could possibly go wrong with that eh?

    Truth is: she`s right, and the very things Girl Scouts have taught her are helping her in her effort to overturn this.

    She`s so effing self righteous and snarky. If she actually looked worried about a cross dressing boy raping her, maybe I`d see her point? Would it be better to have lots of little boys dressed as girls who may also be attracted to other little boys in a boyscout troop?

    There is such a thing as transgender people.. People who at their core identify themselves as a member of the opposite gender than their biological gender.. Several studies have linked the phenomenon to abnormalities in the brain`s structure, meaning that their brain structure more closely resembles that of the opposite gender..
    Gender isn`t a learned trait, but an inherent one; it`s not a choice at any level.. Therefor i see no problem in letting them join the girl scouts since they are, in essence, a girls mind trapped in a boys body..

    Let the flame wars begin..

    She sure speaks well, too bad she doesn`t think very well.

    All of the statistics and reports I was able to find show that the transgendered scouts have far more to fear from the regular "girls" than the girls do from them.

    Sex and Gender are two different things, and this young lady should have done her research first before leading the charge against a group of people who already have to deal with misinformation and discrimination on a daily basis. It is okay to have a "girl" who is sexually aroused by other girls in the troupe,(a lesbian), but not a "boy" who lives their life as a self identified heterosexual female,(a transgendered person). This logic makes no sense to me.

    @kain1: To support my previous statement, any idea if transgender guys are attracted to men or women?

    and going off my previous comment. I am guessing a transgender guy can like guys or girls the same way a non transgender(?) person can.

    What a cow, firstly because she has crawled up her own rear and does not understand what transgender MEANS, but why is the scouts still divided by gender- it is not pernitted for other organisations to ban people because of their gender- so why girl scouts.

    I bet if a member of her troop wanted to join the local Boy Scout troop and if said person got rejected because she is not a boy, she and her troop would riot on the notion of equality.

    That being said I do think boys should stick to Boy Scouts and girls should stick to Girl Scouts, but there would be nothing wrong with mixing the two troops for a couple of outings.

    what a bigotted litte ahole. transgender boys or girls do not see themselves as the gender they were born as. there is emerging scientific evidence that transgender people are that way do to hormone differences in their body that make them feel like the opposite gender. this video is nothing more than a bigot on parade.

    this girl learned nothing from the girl scouts.

    Oh, relax. They let girls into the Boy Scouts, here in Canada they let a girl play hockey with boys; it`s not that big of a deal.

    You think someone shouldn`t be allowed to do something else simply because of their gender? What`s the word I`m looking for...oh yeah: SEXIST.

    Transgender people think like the opposite sex, that means they do behave like the opposite sex. Why should a boy who thinks and acts like a girl be any danger to a girl. I think that the transgender persons have much more to fear from the opposite sex than vice-versa. Having been a boy scout 40 years ago, we were taught to be openminded, try to care of other people, do a good deed daily....
    I don`t think this girl is understanding the basic philosophy of boy or girl scouts.
    In my humble opinion, she would be better in some fanatic church or something similar.
    Here in Luxemburg (Europe), boy scouts and girl scouts are working more and more together, partly remaining divided and partly mixing up, depending on the wishes of the children/parents.

    okays im furious with this....
    she should take a step back and get to know a transgender guy before making accusations and as for sharing a tent. yeah i can see that problem but its not like the guy will rape her or seduce her... i mean if shes worried about that she should be more worried that he steals her boyfriend or her wardrobe if that or her Claire`s jewelry she got for her birthday, so im going to take a 2nd guess and think that her mom wrote this and besides if a girl can join the boys scout then hell a guy can join the girl scouts.

    so im going to continue to buy girl scouts cookies :D

    Just to be clear - in response to a few posts here...

    A transgender person is not necessarily sexually attracted to a person of their original, biological sex. For example, a transgender man (original sex: female) may be sexually attracted to men, but may - in other respects - associate themselves with the male gender.

    In fact, some transgender people are bisexual or even asexual.

    Having said that, I think this girl needs to learn something about transgender people before going on a rant like this.

    Pronouns woman, these are not transgender boys, they are transgender girls.

    Man transitions to woman = Transwoman
    Woman transitions to man = Transman

    As far as i`m concerned, and i`m sure most of those kids are concerned, they are just like any other girl with a birth defect... called a penis. I think she`d be surprised modern medical science can do for these individuals.

    I presume she would like to see transgendered children identified and drowned at birth ...or maybe force-fed girl scout cookies until they choke to death.Her nasty do-goody pretense at piety disgusts me !

    Can she even begin to imagine the suffering of being trapped in the wrong body ?. The fact is those "boys" she refers to ARE girls just with the wrong genitals and are highly likely to have an atypical chromosone combination. They have human rights too ! It is our duty to not just accept them but provide a place for them.

    If a boy lives as a girl and is accepted as a girl by their family and medical profession how dare *she* judge !

    It is no small matter for girl with a male body to be brave enough to set out on the long and painful path to achieving the correct gender .

    With just a quick search on the values that the Girl Scouts are meant to promote in their members, I`m beginning to question this girl`s senses of kindness, friendliness and courtesy...

    Anyway, there are genetic abnormalities that do mean that a person can present physically as female, yet their genotype denotes them as male. I`ll give Androgen Insensitivity Syndrome as an example of an individual who is XY, yet has all the makings of a Victoria`s Secret model. Not quite the same, but Klinefelter`s Syndrome has males (admittedly with slightly altered characteristics) who have genotypes of XXY, XXXY etc.

    So, why hate people who find that, and wish to be surgically changed? Or hate those who have the mind of a male/female, yet have the exterior of a female/male?

    I don`t understand why people don`t comprehend transgender issues. They are born in the wrong body, don`t feel comfortable etc. They want to undergo sex change. Who are you as a closed minded individual to stigmatize, take away rights, and deny them?
    Different cultures have got it more correct; there are many non-Western cultures that recognize this issue and don`t strictly have this 2 gender fixed society. Despite our technology, we can be so ignorant.

    She was afraid of not being told if someone transgendered was in her group. As a quick way of identifying I propose all transgenders in girlscouts to wear an armband with a bright `T` identifying them as such along with a wooden "unclean" sign to be hung around their neck. That way it`s much easier to determine who to unjustifiably harass.
