    Girl Scouts accepts transgender kid, provokes cookie boycott

    in Entertainment

    Bobby Montoya wanted to join the Girl Scouts, setting off a national debate.


    The Girl Scout cookie can't seem to catch a break.


    Under fire in years past for including trans fats, high fructose corn syrup and palm oil in its cookies, the Girl Scouts' current cookie selling season is under fire because of policies that have nothing to do with the actual composition of the cookies.


    A group calling itselfHonestGirlScouts.com has posted a YouTube video calling for a boycott of Girl Scout cookies in response to a Colorado troop's decision to allow a 7-year-old transgender child into its troop. Gay rights and transgender rights groups have reported a grassroots LGBT movement of supporters buying Girl Scout cookies in response to the video.


    "I've decided to purchase as many boxes as my modest budget will allow and donate them to the local LGBTQ community center," says Mara Morken, a lesbian stay-at-home mom in Fargo, North Dakota. "I want to show support for GSUSA in their honorable decision to allow all girls to participate in their programs. However I do not want that support to show itself on my thighs, so I will donate the entire cookie order!" &More fallout with Bruce jenner  Plus Box Office.

    "WHY DON'T BOY SCOUTS SELL COOKIES?" Think About That!

    in Women

    WHY DON’T BOY SCOUTS SELL COOKIES?  THINK ABOUT THAT!!


    Ever since we can remember, the girl scouts have always sold cookies and the boy scouts did not.


    Why is that?  Is it because cookies are associated with the “kitchen”, and boys are not associated with “the kitchen” in a majority popular vote?  Is it because little girls don’t know how to sell anything else? It could be for a lot of reasons, even those that are and have been explained historically.


    But I differ on the “accepted” and “acceptable” reasons why girls sell “cookies” and boys do not.


    Tune into the show and share your thoughts with me.   We are officially entering our 2nd year in radio with a new line-up, a new format, and new segments.  As the host, I’m going to share with you


    “the real reason” why I think that girl scouts sell cookies and boy scouts do not!  It’s not complicated.


    Also on the show will be Special Guest, health coach Sharon Chavers from The Integrative Nutrition Institute will be in the studio.


    As always, in the studio with me will be my Co-Host Sybil Marie Presley. Dial into the show and speak with my guest and ask questions, talk with me and Sybil, or tell us your comments.
