In California a fourteen year old girl by the name of Taylor began a boycott against the Girl Scouts Organization. As a Girl Scout herself, Taylor was displeased to find out the Girl Scout Organization is allowing transgendered males into Girl Scouts. Taylor was taught by the Girl Scouts that when she seen something she disagreed with, she needed to take action and try to change it. Taylor took action by making a video about her issue with the Girl Scouts’ action and launching a boycott against buying Girl Scout cookies.
Taylor’s argument is that the GSUSA is breaking its own safety rules and is go against its own research findings to accommodate transgender boys. One of Taylor’s supports is that the Girl Scouts’ policy is the following “Girl Scouts is an inclusive organization and we accept all girls in Kindergarten through 12th grade as members,” implying that boys are not welcomed into the organization. When in reality the policy states “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.” Nowhere does the policy imply males are not welcomed into the organization.
