I identified as a boy at 7 yo to..my playmates were boys as we had no girls in the neighborhood,. It was a common phase called 'tomboy" back in the day, and had nothing to do with my true sexual orienttion, so I tend to view this whole thingas pretty contrived. However, I always buy GS cookies and send them to the troops since i shouldn't eat them with diabetes and have no brakes with cookies..and already ordered this year. too.

I say YAY to the GS Organization and big BOO to the haters - they spoil the GS name. My daughter is a GS and I've never had a complaint about them. This year I plan on buying extra cookies and shipping them off to my friend who is deployed in Afghanistan to share with his unit.

I used to buy two boxes from the daughter of a friend for DH, but she is now no longer in the Girl Scouts. I'll have to look when I'm at the grocery store. Often they are there on weekends selling cookies. Thanks for sharing the information.

Why can't these bigoted sub-humans just live and let live? This is a child, not a monster. It makes me sick that they are so vindictive and prejudiced. I was a Girl Scout and a GS leader. Do you know there are activities specifically dedicated to inclusiveness within the GS program? I say good riddance to those who cannot understand this basic premise of the Girl Scouts.


“To put yourself in another’s place requires real imagination, but by doing so each Girl Scout
will be able to live among others happily.”

I do not like the Boy Scouts either. They do not promote inclusiveness.

Almost everyone who sells them has a column in which you can just "buy" however many boxes and the money is donated to a charity that the local chapter chooses. That's what I've done the past few years.

I bought some from my niece. They freeze well so I won't eat them all at once. emoticon

I don't buy them in the first place given that I'm trying to lose weight.

I've always refused to support the Boy Scouts of America. The fact that they don't think that atheists like me have a place in BSA must mean they surely don't want my tainted money either. They also don't like homosexuals.
I always liked the Girl Scouts though. They are inclusive and reinforce positive yet under-appreciated values for girls like self-esteem, self-reliance, acceptance and tolerance.
It turns out my instincts were right. In Colorado a 7 year old who was born a boy but identifies as a girl was accepted into a Girl Scout troop and it turns out to be Girl Scouts policy.
If course such courage can't go unpunished. Bigots against GLBT rights are boycotting Girl Scout Cookies this year. www.thefrisky.com/2012-01-13/bigots-

I already have Girl Scout cookies ordered but now I'm going to buy even more so the agents of intolerance won't be successful here. I know we are all on diets! Sometimes I bring cookies to work and sometimes when Girl Scouts are selling cookies in front of grocery stores I'll make a donation instead of buying cookies.
