If there was a question about whether or not political correctness is going too far, this story may just be the answer. The Girl Scouts of America will now welcome “all girls”, regardless of whether or not they are biologically female.
In a blogpost published last Thursday on the Girl Scouts of America webpage, the organization's "Chief Girl Expert," Andrea Bastiani Archibald, wrote of how the Girl Scouts exists to serve "all girls," no matter what they look like or their biological gender.
"The foundation of diversity that Juliette Gordon Low established runs throughout Girl Scouting to this day," Archibald wrote. "Our mission to build 'girls of courage, confidence and character, who make the world a better place' extends to to all members, and through our program, girls develop the necessary leadership skills to advance diversity and promote tolerance."
Here's what Glenn had to say:
"This is one of these things like geez, man, really? Transgendered children? Are we really down to this? I don't know what the right answer is on that, other than I believe God doesn't make mistakes. Now, what that means, I don't know, but gosh, the idea of these poor children, and the parents -- I don't know what to do. I don't know what to do, but the Girl Scouts is not the place -- I mean, we are -- who was it that -- it was Jeb Bush that said recently, we're taking millennia of tradition, and just changing it overnight. We don't know what we're playing with here. Just let's not experiment with our children, for the love of Pete. I say that with as much love and compassion as I can have and muster for all children, no matter where they come from, no matter what they are feeling inside. Let's not experiment with our children, please, for the love of Pete."
