Taken from the Honest Girl Scouts campaign. For a campaign trying to get people /not/ to buy cookies and /not/ support the GSUSA, this is doing an awful lot to suddenly make me want /to/ support the GSUSA. (and I’m saying this a a former Girl Scout of about 6 years who hasn’t bought cookies in years because they’re too expensive).
I see so much acceptance here, and especially in a time in children’s lives where acceptance is so important, taking that away from them is just cruel.
I find it ironic that a conservative movement’s poster is having the exact opposite effect of what they intended. This year, I’m buying cookies BECAUSE GSUSA has such inclusive policies, and wishing the BSA would take some time to seriously examine its discriminatory policies towards queer people.
We live in a world where “good” and “information-based” are descriptions for sex education that are supposed to be shocking or retracted. Sad, isn’t it? This “Honest Girl Scouts” thing is straight up hateful.
Unfortunately, us Non-US/International folk can’t buy cookies (even online), but we can certainly signal-boost :) American followers, please consider buying a box if you have the opportunity.
