Progressive parents and their 15 minutes of fame. As you certainly know, the latest progressive cause is transgenderism. A woman in New Jersey has decided that her eight-year-old daughter, who, in sane times would have been referred to as a “tomboy,” is a “transgender boy.”
The girl has been well coached by her mother and is busy making the rounds of the “news” networks. She’s a star on CNN.
“How dare they judge me? I don’t have to explain it, it’s the way I was born.” That’s a quote from the young girl who thinks she’s a boy.
For the moment the Boy Scouts of America have banned “transgender boys” from participating in Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts. The only question is how many lawsuits are going to have to be filed before they cave.
A Boy Scouts’ spokesperson told the New York Daily News, “Gender identity isn’t related to sexual orientation.” Translating that into English, the girl wasn’t kicked out for being “transgender.” She was kicked out for not being a boy.
The eight-year-old responded to the Boy Scouts’ decision. “It made me mad. I had a sad face, but I wasn’t crying. I’m way more angry than sad. My identity as a boy. If I was them, I would let every person in the world go in. It’s right to do.”
No it’s not. For one thing, scouts do things together like camping. They sleep together in tents and take showers together. That’s not a place for an eight-year-old girl. If her mother thinks this is a good idea she’s a candidate for a straightjacket.
This will certainly end up in court. The Boy Scouts of America have been a prime target for the Gay Mafia for a decade. They been sued multiple times over their ban on homosexual men as Scout leaders and allowing boys who identify as homosexuals to be members of the Boy Scouts. BSA leadership caved in to the Gay Mafia three years ago. The only question with respect to “transgender” scouts is when the BSA will cave.
A precedent has been set by the Girl Scouts of the USA, an organization not affiliated with Boy Scouts of America. The policy and Girl Scouts say “if the child is recognized by the family in school/community as a girl and lives culturally as a girl, then Girl Scouts is an organization that can serve her in a setting that is both emotionally and physically safe.”
Needless to say the “Human Rights Campaign,” a central organization in the Gay Mafia” is calling on the Boy Scouts to follow the lead of Girl Scouts.
“To deny a young transgender person opportunities granted to their peers is harmful and mean-spirited. It reinforces bullying and prejudice toward young people.”
The spokesperson for the HRC managed to jam every possible progressive buzzword into those two sentences.
The fact that the Girl Scouts of the USA has basically been taken over by lesbians and are a major contributor to organizations like Planned Parenthood should tell you all you need to know about that quote.
Traditional values are indeed under attack from the left. I doubt that you would be able to find a single Democrat who would support the position taken by the Boy Scouts of America. Thanks to lower court appointments over the last eight years, lawsuits against the Boy Scouts brought by “parents” over this issue will certainly be decided against the Boy Scouts.
The real question is, what happens when the case gets to the Supreme Court?
