mysid: the name mysid on a black and white photo of two children with a tricycle (tricycle)
As I may have mentioned before, both of my daughters have been involved in Girl Scouts, but I refused to allow my son to join the Boy Scouts. He asked to join once, but I had to refuse due the anti-gay membership policy of the Boy Scouts of the USA. (I was scrambling to find an alternative for him when I realized that if they didn't have a cookie sale like the Girl Scouts, he wasn't interested anyway.)

Now I have even more reason to be proud of the inclusiveness of the Girl Scouts. A troop recently allowed a transgender child to join. Idiots are, of course, calling for a boycott of the upcoming annual cookie sale. Supporters of inclusiveness are using this as an excuse to buy more cookies!

Here's a link to the CNN story.
