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-call-f
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.
