Default Texans say no to teaching lesbianism to girlscouts by nixxing GS cookies

Texans Boycott Girl Scout Cookies Over Planned Parenthood Ties

Wednesday, March 03, 2004

CRAWFORD, Texas Some families are boycotting Thin Mints and Do-Si-Dos and other Girl Scout (search) cookies. Troop 7527 is down to just two members after the other girls were withdrawn by their parents. And Brownie Troop 7087 is no more.



Why are folks in this Texas town where President Bush has his ranch so mad at the Girl Scout organization?

Planned Parenthood (search) and sex education.

The furor was started a few weeks ago by the leader of the anti-abortion group Pro-Life Waco (search), who sent out e-mails and ran ads on a Christian radio station urging people to boycott Girl Scout cookies because of the "cozy relationship" between the Girl Scouts and Planned Parenthood.

Parents were upset to learn that the local Girl Scout organization had given a "woman of distinction award" last year to a Planned Parenthood executive. And they were disturbed to find out that the Girl Scout organization has been giving its endorsement for years to a Planned Parenthood sex-ed program in which girls and boys are given literature on homosexuality, masturbation and condoms.

"It's not that we're a bunch of activists. We're just a bunch of moms who care about their kids," said Lisa Aguilar, who took her 10-year-old daughter out of her eight-member Girl Scout troop. "For us, it's the morality. Where is Girl Scouts going?"

The two troops in Crawford, population 700, decided not to deliver the cookie orders that they had already taken.

But cookie sales have skyrocketed this year as many people bought cases just to show their support for the Girl Scouts, said Becky Parker, a troop leader who is the cookie distributor for Waco-area troops.

"People thought the boycott was ridiculous and was one man's extremist views," Parker said.

While the cookie boycott may have backfired, the furor prompted the parent leaders of the two Crawford troops to quit.

"You're telling these girls to raise their fingers up to pledge to honor God and country, and yet you're handing out materials saying homosexuality is OK," said Brownie leader Donna Coody, who disbanded her five-member troop.

Because of the uproar, the Bluebonnet Council of Girl Scouts, which oversees troops in the Waco area and 13 other counties, announced last week that it would not be affiliated with Planned Parenthood sex-education programs this year.

In an editorial in Friday's Waco Tribune-Herald, Pam Smallwood, the Planned Parenthood of Central Texas executive director who was honored by the Girl Scouts last year, complained that Girl Scouts had thereby demonstrated that "bullying tactics are more effective than an informed democracy."

The Waco-area Girl Scout organization has been putting its name and logo on brochures for the Planned Parenthood sex-education programs but said it does not contribute any money and does not send girls to attend.

Some 400 to 700 fifth- through ninth-graders attend the half-day Nobody's Fool conference in Waco each July. The program never mentions abortion, according to Planned Parenthood. The youngsters receive a book with chapters on homosexuality and masturbation, as well as illustrations of couples having sex, people examining their naked bodies and a boy putting on a condom.

Some Girl Scout mothers called it soft-core porn.

"It embarrassed me to look at it with my husband," said parent Shannon Donaldson.

Pro-Life Waco director John Pisciotta, an economics professor at Baylor, the world's largest Baptist university, said his call for a cookie boycott "was a way to bring attention to the issue and wasn't really about cookies."

The Girl Scouts national organization, which is based in New York and has 2.9 million girl members and 986,000 adult members, takes no position on sex education or abortion and has no national relationship with Planned Parenthood, according to the Bluebonnet Council.

The Crawford mothers are forming their own girls organization and will use a Christian-based curriculum. Beth Vivio, director of the Bluebonnett Council, declined to say if parents in any other troops had taken their daughters out.

Some parents decided to explain abortion to their girls. Others gave only a vague explanation about the uproar.

"Our girls have been through a lot these past three weeks," said Jennifer Smith, who quit as leader of Girl Scout Troop 7527 and removed her daughter. "After I told my 10-year-old daughter that they are supporting some things that are not morally right, she understood."

Man this is so getting out of hand, why do adults feel they have to warp little kids minds with this shit? Cant they just let the kids grow up normal before introducing them into this deviant behavior so they can at least decide objectively about it?

If sex ed is taught in schools, then why would they need to teach it again there?

I see nothing wrong with the Girl Scouts setting their own agenda. I will just keep my daughter out of it since I dont agree with their choices.

I think kids can figure out these things on their own, referring to homosexuality, masturbation, and so on.

They see it in the news while flipping the channels, see it in public places, school textbooks touch on it, pretty sure they have heard their parents comment on homosexuality if they are against it.

...and a boy putting on a condom.
Think my friend should have seen that or read the package
His first time using one a while back, he unrolled it seperately then tried putting it on ><

because chuk, these groups of pro-life or pro-choice, or pro-god or athiests, pro this anti that, need recruits, so basically its a race to get your point of view imprinted first, its the same reason tabaco companys used to target kids

its sick and twisted to try and recuit children into ways of thinking just so your numbers look better on paper

Haha, I live in Texas and bought about 9 boxes of Girl Scout cookies. First of all I love them, and buy them for me and my mom. Secondly, I was in Brownies when I was young and we had tons of fun! Lastly, there's no way it's that little girl's fault who sells cookies. These are girls from my neighborhood, they're good kids =D

Heaven forbid the girl scouts recognize a woman from an organization that tries to instill responsible attitudes in teenagers.

Damn Fanon, you are hitting my buttons this morning! Twice within minutes we've scored an absolute 100% same line of thought.

This shit is getting out of hand...let the kids have their youth. I wish parents would quit building prejudice in their children.

I personally buy maybe 10-12 boxes from the girls in my neighborhood. Im a soft sell, lol. They all know to come to my house and Ill buy. Every year, like clockwork. I like the cookies, but I also like the idea of the kids getting out there and meeting other children and learning about goals, cohesion, teamwork, and responsibility. More power to them.

As Fanon said...we wouldnt want to reinforce a positive role-model for these girls...geez, how evil would that be?

I agree 100% that we should let kids have their youth. It's a shame that the liberals have to target children to push their views on. It was nice not to have to worry about this crap when I was a kid.

*GASP*

How dare the GSA freely endorse an organization of their own choosing!!

BTW, for some of you who are the reading challenged, the article doesn't state that the GSA was teaching sex-ed to the kids. The GSA was endorsing Planned Parenthood which teaches sex-ed classes. You know, that is what Planned Parenthood is about....

Oooh the >>>> pwnd 1337 i r smrt kekelala` wuwu~, kiddie reply, what will i do against such a retort??!!1111! The girl scouts are very influential to young girls and for the GSA lending support to extremists or perverts sends messages to children they shouldnt be having, they're friggin 10 years old for crying out loud. Id feel the same way if the GSA gave an award to linnette squeakie fromme or Linda Lovelace.

Chuk, I am sure you will not understand the following, but the GSA is a young girls group that empowers females to grow into strong young women. The GSA is about celebrating the power of women. In that they share common ground with Planned Parenthood which is about educating young women on the dangers of STDs, pregnancy, and how to have sex reponsibly should they have sex at all.

I love the left.

They applaud mayors in cities breaking the law by marrying same sex couples. Yet, they vilify parents and people who legally voice their opinion by legally boycotting buying GS cookies.

I see, so a single statement by one person automatically means that ALL liberals have villified parents?! You are really reaching.

Gotta love prudes.

Someone explain to me how teaching kids about STDs, masturbation and abortion is immoral. Parents still have input. No one is precluding parental involvement - and if I know the GSA they actively encourage parental involvement. If the parents feel the bias is too strong then speak up. It's healthier for the community for you to stick it out and find a comfortable medium.

Your innocent daughters are learning about sex whether you want to teach them or not. When will folks wake up and realize sex-education isn't the enemy. Sex-ignorance is a much greater villain.

Flub- they most certainly do have the right to be backwards thinking retards. Doesn't change the fact that I wish they'd stop drawing breath.

I'm psyched I was appointed spokesperson for all liberals though- I didn't even know I was in the running!

Lur, in the past you have said 'You conservatives' after one person has said something. You can't really be upset that about that.

What's the matter, Starbucks buy you favorite coffee house?

Glad to see you are open minded. After all it would take someone with such an open mind to call those who oppose your way of thinking as being 'backwards'.

I'm psyched I was appointed spokesperson for all liberals though- I didn't even know I was in the running!
Since you decided who has 'backwards thinking'. I thought it was appropriate to get to decide who speaks for the left.
