Tolerance and Cookies

As if you needed another reason to eat Girl Scout cookies, turns out you're actually taking a stand against right wing intolerance with every bite.

A Colorado Girl Scout troop welcomed a 7-year old transgender girl into its ranks.   And they didn't just admit her, but issued a statement welcoming all transgender girls to join.

But every time an organization or institution becomes more inclusive, it seems there are some crazies shrieking about the disintegration of the moral fiber of America.  Enter HonestGirlScouts.com.  

In an attempt to prevent a 7-year old from canoeing, visiting nursing homes and learning to identify plant species, HonestGirlScouts.com is taking a stand against the Girl Scouts' “bias for transgenders,” among other things.  (They also criticize the Girl Scouts for things like aligning themselves with the United Nations and Planned Parenthood, promoting sex education, “New Age consultants,” and the use of gay role models.)

A 14-year old posted a video on the website calling for the boycott of Girl Scout cookies, which has since been taken down.  But you can still check out the alarmist flyer about where your Girl Scout cookie money goes.  

Let's just say that after reading this literature, I want to eat Girl Scout cookies even more. Because if there's anything more delicious than a Caramel deLite, it's gender equality.

Cookies are now on sale.  

Warning: What it lacks in rationality, HonestGirlScouts.com makes up for with a lot of pink and purple.  This site will make both your eyes and your brain hurt.
