Here’s yet another reason to love the Girl Scouts. Recently, a young girl was denied enrollment in a Colorado troop because she is trans. Via GLAAD comes this statement released by Girl Scouts of Colorado in response:
Girl Scouts is an inclusive organization and 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.
Isn’t it great to see an appropriate, just response in this situation? I know I plan to up my Thin Mints order this year. It will be a struggle to eat all those cookies, but it’s the least I can do to support this wonderful organization.
