(CNSNews.com) – Girl Scouts of the USA told CNSNews.com in a written statement on Friday that it will accept “transgender youth” on a “case-by-case basis.”
The organization sent CNSNews.com the statement after CNSNews.com asked if the national Girl Scouts had a position on a case in which a Girl Scout troop in Colorado initially prevented a 7-year-old boy from joining and then the state Girl Scouts organization said that it would accept boys who were “living life as a girl.”
The brief Girl Scouts of the USA statement made no mention of the Colorado case.
“Girl Scouts of the USA is an inclusive organization, and we welcome all girls in kindergarten through 12th grade as members,” it said. “Acceptance of transgender youth is handled on a case-by-case basis, with the welfare and best interests of the child in question as a top priority.” Click here to continue reading.
