Male Girl Scout has trouble selling cookies in drag

A boy disguised as a girl scout tried to sell girl scout cookies to a man, who told him that he didn't want to buy girl scout cookies from a boy disguised as a girl.  This led to a major story in the Washington Post the size of an investigation into Pakistan's nuclear arsenal.

Nine-year-old Stormi set out last month to sell cookies just like every other Girl Scout — with a sales pitch and a goal.

But when Stormi, who is transgender, started knocking on neighbors' doors near her home in Herrin, Ill., one man turned her away, saying: "Nobody wants to buy cookies from a boy in a dress."

"It made me sad," Stormi told BuzzFeed News. "Because I'm a girl."

I think Loretta Lynch will be setting up a task force to investigate this obvious hate crime.

It turns out nine-year-old Stormi (probably not the child's birth name) is a foster child, so that may contribute to his messed up background.  But hey, he's 9 years old, so he's old enough to decide his gender identity, right?

Transgender Girl Scouts have struggled to gain acceptance.

After a troop in Colorado admitted a 7-year-old transgender girl in 2011,several Girl Scout troops in Louisiana disbanded in protest and a California teen called for a boycott.

"Girl Scouts of the U.S.A. … is not being honest with us girls, its troops, its leaders, its parents or the American public," the teen said in a YouTube video, released by a Houston-based group called the "Honest Girl Scouts." "Girl Scouts describes itself as an all-girl experience. With that label, families trust that the girls will be in an environment that is not only nurturing and sensitive to girls' needs, but also safe for girls."

That's not very progressive, is it?

In 2015, a Girl Scouts troop in Washington was handed a $100,000 donation — as long as the girls agreed not to use the money to support transgender children.

The Girl Scouts of Western Washington returned the check.

"Girl Scouts is for every girl," Megan Ferland, the Girl Scout council's chief executive, told Seattle Metropolitan over the summer. "And every girl should have the opportunity to be a Girl Scout if she wants to."

Exactly.  Every girl, as well as every boy who says he is a girl, should have that chance.  But what about 40-year-old men who say they, too, are girls?  Shouldn't they have the same chance to join the Girl Scouts, to go on overnight trips with the Girl Scouts, to sleep in their little pup tents together?  Wouldn't excluding them also be counter to the goals of including all "girls"?

Exit questions:

1) Should Girl Scouts be required to allow members to grow beards?

2) Should the Girl Scouts include boys and men who call themselves girls, and if so, should they have more events requiring them to shower and bathe together, to promote more group cohesiveness?

3) If registered sex offenders decide they, too, are girls and want to join the Scouts, do you still think liberals will take a progressive attitude?
