The latest downward slide for Girl Scouts: 'Girl' is now optional

A traditional values leader is exposing the Girl Scouts for its continued move toward far-left causes. 

The latest announcement, says Linda Harvey of Mission America, is that little boys from kindergarten through high school can join the Girl Scouts, if the boy considers himself a girl.

"In other words, he calls the shots," Harvey says of young males. "He is the one that determines the rights and privacy of authentic girls."

Regarding transgender youth, the website for the Scouts states that if a boy is recognized as living as a girl, "then Girl Scouts is an organization that can serve her in a setting that is both emotionally and physically safe."

Harvey, Linda (Mission: America)The Girl Scouts began the move by pushing liberal sex education, although some local groups refuse to follow along, and then the Scouts decided the girls could define God as they wish - or deny Him.

OneNewsNow reported last year that the CEO of the Girl Scouts was trying to deflect ties to Planned Parenthood but pro-family watchdog groups, already tracking the association, reported otherwise. 

The Girl Scouts were the targets of a "cookie boycott" last year after the group was accused of trumpeing Wendy Davis, the pro-abortion Democrat who ran for Texas governor. 

In the latest news, a chapter is being organized for homosexual and lesbian families at the Utah Pride Center.

What the Girl Scouts are advocating, says Harvey, is "anything that is anti-Christian, and anything that would dishonor girls."

Meanwhile, a pro-family rival organization to the Girl Scouts, American Heritage Girls, is celebrating 20 years this year.
