Girl Scouts facing cookie boycott: BUY EM NOW!

RWers are latching onto the transgender controversy to call for a boycott of GS cookie sales:

The Girl Scout cookie can't seem to catch a break. Under fire in years past for including trans fats, high fructose corn syrup and palm oil in its cookies, the Girl Scouts' current cookie selling season is under fire because of policies that have nothing to do with the actual composition of the cookies. A group calling itself HonestGirlScouts.com has posted a YouTube video calling for a boycott of Girl Scout cookies in response to a Colorado troop's decision to allow a 7-year-old transgender child into its troop.

Proudly my new neighbor and her granddaughter just came to my door and I gladly bought four boxes (though I surely don't need any. Please support them this year. Don't let these bigoted RWers take their hate out on these girls

1. I always buy girl scout cookies.

Girl Scouts are the best memories of my own childhood and young teen years.

I bought 3 boxes a couple of days ago.

7. My daughter is a GS.

You can send a box of GS cookies to those serving in the military!

I'm going to send the troops a boatload now that I know about the boycott.

Why do rw'ers hate our military?

13. The religious right is boycotting girl scout cookies. What else is new?

 

They do this every few months.
