Cookie Boycott Launched Over Girl Scouts' Inclusion Of Transgender Members

World Net Daily is promoting a boycott of Girl Scout cookies over the organization's policy of allowing transgender girls to join.
After controversy arose over the potential admission of Colorado 7-year-old Bobby Montoya last month, The Girl Scouts of Colorado released a statement explaining, “We accept all girls in kindergarten through 12th grade as members. If a child identifies as a girl and the child’s family presents her as a girl, Girl Scouts of Colorado welcomes her as a Girl Scout.” Rachelle Trujillo, vice president for communications of the Colorado Girl Scouts, added, “If a child is living as a girl, that’s good enough for us. We don’t require any proof of gender.” According to a report in the Baptist Press, Trujillo also affirmed transgendered children are currently serving in Girl Scout troops across the U.S., though she declined to give details.
The boycott is being spearheaded by a 14-year old Girl Scouts member who last week posted the below YouTube clip. Supporters of transgender children have dominated the comments for the above-linked WND article.
