I use this as an excuse to not buy merchandise the Boy Scouts peddle. Occasionally I’ll explain to the scout and parent that I’m an atheist and will not give money to an organization that does not accept me.
You could do the same for the girl scouts when they try to sell you cookies. Explain to them that you are a male and will not give money to an organization that does not accept you.
That would be a big mistake. The Girl Scouts, unlike the Boy Scouts, is a very tolerant, accepting, positive organization. Yes it is for girls only, though men can in fact be troop leaders. But to not buy their cookies because they won’t accept you because you’re a boy is like refusing to buy anything at the Battery Store because they refuse to sell food.
LOL! I know. I was joking. Girls scouts allow gays and atheists.
“Membership is what you make it. Pitch in your expertise or build a skill you’ve always wanted to develop. Speak any foreign languages? Dabble in Web design? Your Girl Scout council needs your talent! You can spend an hour, a day, or more, depending on your schedule. We’re looking for members who believe in girls and volunteers who represent the diversity of the world we live in—women, men, young adults, senior citizens, people of all racial and ethnic backgrounds, and of course our treasured Alumnae.”
Girl Scouts have been ahead of the pack for most of its existence. The Girl Scouts’ organization is nothing like Boy Scouts’ Organization. BSA has a lot to learn from the Girl Scouts. Trouble is they’re still pushing male supremacy which is why they’re whithering away.
