When most of us think about the Girl Scouts, cookies immediately come to mind…
Personally, I love Thin Mints.
But for families with daughters in the Girl Scouts, it’s all about the badges.
Some of the most popular badges include the Outdoor Adventure badge, the Horseback Riding badge, the Archery badge, the Paddling badge, and the Ultimate Recreation Challenge badge.
However, there is a new badge that the Girl Scouts are offering, a special badge that completes LGBTQ+-themed activities to honor Pride month.
Yes, the Girl Scouts have bent a knee to “wokeism” and the LGBTQ+ agenda, designed to indoctrinate our young girls.
There was a time when the Girl Scouts represented fun, adventure, community, friendship, and the importance of working together. It was about teaching girls how to become strong, independent, and fearless through a wide variety of enriching activities.
Now the Girl Scouts have fallen into LGBTQ dogma, cloaking it within their badge program—A program that was originally developed to enable girls to become proficient in a community activity, sports activity, and cultural or environmental topics.
What will a Pride badge make these girls proficient in? Pronouns? Gender fluency? Dare we even ask?
To earn these “special” Pride badges, girls can attend pride events or complete educational assignments about gay and transgender activism, like:
- Reading books by LGBTQ+ authors (identifying 5 books by LGBTQ+ authors to read or create a painting of an LGBTQ+ artist.)
- Watching LGBTQ+ documentaries
- Make a music playlist featuring 12 LGBTQ+ artists
- Attending pride celebrations
- Creating a rainbow-themed flag
Daisy, Brownie, and Junior Girl Scouts, which consist of younger girls, must participate in 3 pride-related activities, and older Girl Scouts in the Cadette, Senior, and Ambassador levels must participate in 6 activities to earn the patch.
The event is supported and driven by the radical socialist group, The Human Rights Campaign (HRC).
The HRC has created a document that is being passed out nationwide to all of the Girls Scouts chapters. The literature provides an overview of LGBTQ terms and explains certain aspects of LGBTQ lifestyles.
For example, the document defines gays and lesbians as “individuals who love or are attracted to people of the same gender.” It goes on to describe gay people as those who “identify with and celebrate people of all gender identities and all the ways people love each other.”
And the terms “transgender” or “trans” are defined in the document as:
“When your gender identity (how you feel) is different than what doctors/ midwives assigned to you when you were born (girl/boy or sex assigned at birth).”[Click Here] to see our previous article about The Human Rights Campaign, entitled; Why American Corporations Cave to Radical Politicized Agendas— Here Are 6 Things Every American Should Know About the Under-the-Radar Corporate Equity Index (CEI).
The official Girl Scouts website describes the purpose of the event as to “…allow troop members to earn the LGBT-themed patch is to ‘celebrate’ the diversity of LGBT individuals and acknowledge the community’s contributions to the nation.”
It also says, “Girls of all identities [trans boys] are encouraged to participate.”
Andrea Bastiani Archibald, Chief Girl Expert of the Girl Scouts of America, describes the event as follows:
“The Girl Scout LGBTQ+ Pride Month Celebration Fun Patch is designed for Girl Scouts of all levels and their leaders to honor LGBTQ+ history, to celebrate the diverse cultures and identities of LGBTQ+ people, and to acknowledge the many contributions of the LGBTQ+ community has made and continues to make across our nation.
The organization exists to serve “all girls,” regardless of their biological sex.
Our mission to build ‘girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place’ extends to all members, and through our program, girls develop the necessary leadership skills to advance diversity and promote tolerance.”
The website also posted photos of the Girl Scouts marching, displaying rainbow flags, and leading 5 and 6-year-olds in a Pride parade.
One chapter, The Girl Scouts of Eastern Massachusetts posted the following statement on social media:
“We are proud to stand in support of our LGBTQIA+ Girl Scouts and community members who continue to face hate, discrimination, and violence for living as they are. We see you, we hear you, and we love you.”
The event is already causing a backlash from parents, Christians, and others who are tired of our children being sexualized and indoctrinated into questioning their sexual orientation or their biological sex.
But this isn’t the first national backlash for the Girl Scouts. In 2018 they received tremendous backlash for allowing boys who identify as girls into the Girl Scouts.
This is just another example of how radical socialists are inserting themselves into every American institution, all to indoctrinate our children and have them question their real gender and sex.
My daughters are adults now, but I would pull them out immediately if they were in the Girl Scouts.
The Girl Scouts is supporting an ideology that’s hurting our children… It confuses them and forces them to question their sexual identities.
However, there are alternatives for parents and grandparents who don’t want their young children exposed to this radical indoctrination.
In addition, parents and grandparents can volunteer to help these alternative organizations or start one through their church and local communities.
Shelly and I just completed 2 podcasts on alternative options—One on a Girl Scout substitute called American Heritage Girls and another on a Boy Scout Substitute called Trail Life USA, which I know you’ll be interested in hearing about.
