Girl Scouts turn down $100,000 gift for excluding 'boy-girls'

The Girl Scouts turned down a $100,000 gift that was conditioned on it not being used to support "transgenderism."  The Scouts felt it was too big of a price to pay, and I quite agree!

"We're an organization dedicated to helping all girls become the best version of themselves and we don't want any barriers in place for their success," said Stefanie Ellis, public relations director of the Western Washington Girl Scouts Council. "The stipulation attached to that would have been a barrier."

This is true!  They are committed to helping all girls, and this condition would have prevented the Scouts from helping boys who say they feel like girls.  How fair is it to give money to the Girl Scouts while spending it only on Girl Scouts who are girls?

Girl Scouts empowers EVERY girl regardless of her gender identity ...

Again, I quite agree.  (And I love how liberals always mix ALL CAPS in to make their point so emphatically!  It's not just their arguments I love, but their rhetorical screaming which  I REALLY AGREE WITH, LOL!)

What the Girl Scouts are saying is simply undeniable: every girl should be empowered, regardless of gender.  If you empower only girls who are girls, but exclude boys who say they feel like girls, isn't that extremely discriminatory?

The Girl Scouts add:

"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," states the FAQ. "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."

Again, a perfect point.  The welfare of the group is paramount.  That's why it is essential that boy-girls accompany girl-girls on camping trips.  Think of all the teachable moments, when girl-girls and boy-girls get naked when changing clothes or bathing.  Girl-girls can get an education about the private parts of boy-girls, and boy-girls can get a preview of what they will look like after their surgery!

Girl-girls can learn that some girls wearing Girl Scout skirts have hairy legs, and deep voices, and moustaches.  They may even learn to question their own gender identity, and put interesting ideas in their heads about cutting off their hair and breasts and walking like an auto mechanic.  And boy-girls can make a lot of platonic girl-girl friends when they snuggle together in their tents at night.  So everyone wins!

My only worry with all this is that girl-boys, children who are born female but "think" they are male, can be members of the Girl Scouts even though they feel like boys.  Imagine how awful it would be if your daughter went on an intimate camping trip with another child who by all measures was a girl, but psychologically thought she was a boy.  This probably happens all the time in the Girl Scouts, and there needs to be some sort of psychological test given to weed out the girls who secretly think they are boys.  Only then can we have true harmony in the Girl Scouts, by strictly limiting them to girls, and boys who say they are girls.

Exit question: Isn't the name "Girl Scouts" so outdated, so 1950s-ish?  What do you think the Girl Scouts should be called now?   How about "Girl Gender Identity Scouts" or  "Girl, and Boys Who Think They Are Girls, Scouts"?  Or something else?
