Boycott of Girl Scout Cookies

Categories: Opinion

In 2011, a Girl Scout organization in Colorado decided it would be okay for boys to join the Girl Scouts instead of the Boy Scouts.  Many people oppose that decision.

Today, this video shows a veteran Girl Scout - Taylor, as some have identified her - politely, calmly, and reasonably voicing her objection to allowing boys into the Girl Scouts.

What caught my attention more than Taylor's video are the vicious remarks expressed by those who disagree with her.  Read the comments on this page, for example, and watch some other opposing videos.

I support Taylor's argument, and I'll join the boycott of Girl Scout cookies (not that I ever bought them anyway, but...).

Gender is not determined by an individual's feelings.  Gender is determined by chromosomes.  There's not a doctor in the world who can change those chromosomes, so there is really no such thing as a "transgender".  You are what you are regardless of how you feel.

"If you call a dog's tail a leg, how many legs would the dog have?"

The answer to Abraham Lincoln's favorite riddle is four.  It doesn't matter what you call a dog's tail, it's still a tail.

Although this is not a racial issue, some have equated it to that, so this quote applies:

"It's not the color of your skin we object to; it's the color of your attitude."

Those of us who support traditional moral values are routinely called bigots.  We are accused of being filled with hate.  I see no evidence that Taylor hates anyone.  She has a valid argument, one that's been supported since the inception of the Girl Scouts.  But some people want to change tradition based on their own selfish, personal feelings.  They seem to have no regard for the feelings of the majority.  That's one of the reasons America is in its decline.

I would disagree with HonestGirlScouts.com on the abortion issue.  I oppose abortion, would never have one, nor would I perform one on another person.  But I believe the decision to have an aborttion should be left to the patient and her doctor, not the Girl Scouts or the government.

I would, however, agree with HonestGirlScouts.com that sex education should not be part of the Girl Scout cirriculum, and should be left to the parents/guardians.

If you agree with Taylor, fine.  If you disagree with Taylor, that's fine, too.  I would just ask that you express your disagreement with the same reason, logic, courtesy, and composure Taylor did, and refrain from the emotionally-charged name-calling.

You deserve to know what Girl Scout cookies fund.
