A Girl Scout cookies boycott was called for by a teen girl from California who recorded a video encouraging the organization to ban transgender members.

Girl Scout cookies usually bring to mind thoughts of sweet delight. This year, a teen girl from California identified as “Taylor” is calling for a boycott of Girl Scout cookies to protest the organization's inclusion of a transgender child last year.

The teen recorded an eight-minute video to protest the inclusion of transgender members. She urged people to refuse to purchase the famous cookies until the Girl Scouts agree to ban transgender members.

Taylor said, “Why is GSUSA willing to break its own safety rules and go against its own research findings to accommodate transgender boys?”

The teen girl continues, “Unfortunately, I think it is because GSUSA care more about promoting the desires of a small handful of people than it does my safety and the safety of my friends. And they are doing it with the money we earn for them by selling Girl Scouts cookies.”

As of this morning, the video got more than 10,000 hits. Response videos were posted on YouTube giving the Girl Scouts kudos for permitting transgender children into troops. A Colorado mother is used the video to ask people to buy more Girl Scout cookies to support the organization and the Bobby Montoya, the 7-year-old Colorado transgender child allowed into the organization last year.

Taylor's video was posted to honestgirlscouts.com. The group encourages a return to traditional values according to the Girl Scouts of USA Congressional Charter calling for “qualities of truth...purity.” The group also seeks to eliminate sexual education.

The Honest Girl Scouts website includes a Girl Scout cookies boycott flier. The flier claims funds from the sale of cookies are used to “promote abortion and LGBT agendas” as well as “introduce teen Girl Scout delegates to the concept of 'Sexual Rights' for children without parental consent.”

Three Louisiana Girl Scout troops disbanded last year after the inclusion of Bobby into a Colorado troop. At that time, the Girl Scouts indicated, “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.”

As HULIQ reported earlier, Girl Scout cookies raise money for activities year-round and come in a variety of distinctive types. Many buyers look forward to the sale of Girl Scout cookies to munch on their favorite Thin Mints or Samoas.

In a statement to the New York Daily News, a Girl Scouts spokesperson said, “As a beloved American institution, the Girl Scout Cookie Program is a natural target for those seeking to draw attention to themselves or their cause. It's important for everyone to know that nearly 100% of the proceeds from these sales stay in the local market and are used to fund programs for girls.”

The spokesperson also stated, “For 100 years, Girl Scouts has prided itself on being an inclusive organization serving girls from all walks of life. We handle cases involving transgender children on a case-by-case basis, with a focus on ensuring the welfare and best interests of the child in question and the other girls in the troop as our highest priority.”

The Girls Scouts website anticipates a large demand for their cookies as usual. According to a blog post yesterday, a Cookie Finder was first launched last year with a new version available at the App Store this year to search for cookie sellers by zip code and distance. A GPS lets enthusiastic buyers find the nearest seller of Girl Scout cookies to get their annual fix.

My wife and I just bought 100 boxes of Girl Scout cookies. I'm so thankful that GSUSA is nothing like YOU and your family. I think the Boy Scouts need to hang out with the Girl Scouts some more for sure. I think you and your family may want to stop spending so much time hating and start educating yourself about boys, girls and more importantly TRANSGENDERED boys and girls. A little bit of education goes a long way. Love and Acceptance will beat out Hate and Bigotry over time......remember that. I haven't bought Girl Scout cookies in years and yet my wife and I agreed to buy 100 boxes from a friends daughter in California because her mom shared your video with us and how sickened she and her young daughter were by it. THAT lil girl is a true Girl Scout and abides by everything they stand for. You got a lot to learn but unfortunately it sounds as though you're at a disadvantage because of your unaccepting parents. Folks, please take this time to order girl scout cookies. You don't have to eat them. We are actually donating 96 of our 100 boxes to Operation Gratitude. So, buy them to show your support of them and your disapproval of this girl and her intolerance, and just give them away. Again, thanks for this video kid, you helped me make a difference in a little girls life and you helped me make a statement about the Girl Scouts and their inclusive policy. Gooooooo Girl Scouts!
