VENTURA COUNTY, CA – A 14-year-old Girl Scout has reportedly joined with parents and Scout alumni to call for a boycott of the widely-popular Girl Scout cookies, claiming the organization is using cookie proceeds to push a radical homosexual agenda at the expense of the Scouts’ safety.
The girl, identified as “Taylor from Ventura County, California,” but whose parents have asked her last name and troop number be withheld, made a YouTube video calling for the boycott after she learned that Girl Scouts U.S.A. has been admitting boys who claim to be transgender girls into scout troops.
“Transgender Girl Scouts = Boys Who Wish They Were Girls,” the video touts in bold faced type.
The video was released by a Houston-based group made up of Girl Scout volunteers called the “Honest Girl Scouts.”
Sometime after the Washington Post reposted Taylor’s video on their website, Taylor made her YouTube account “private”.
A spokesperson for the Girl Scouts released a statement saying that the Scouts 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, she is welcomed as a Girl Scout,” the statement read.
Spokeswoman Michelle Tompkins re-affirmed that the proceeds from Girl Scout Cookies, as always, ““stay in the local market and are used to fund programs for girls,” in an email to the Washington Post.
