Boy Scouts of America are now in the middle of a ‘transgender’ controversy. A Cub Scout pack rejected a transgender girl and the story has gone viral. From Todd Starnes of Fox News:
The Cub Scouts are facing a transgender controversy after an eight-year-old born a girl who identifies as a boy was asked to leave a New Jersey pack. …
The eight-year-old, who had been a member of the scouting group for about a month, was kicked out of Cub Scout Pack 87 because she is transgender. Local news accounts indicate an unknown number of parents were upset their sons were in a scouting group with a girl who identifies as a boy.
“How dare they judge me?” the child told The Record newspaper. “I don’t have to explain it. It’s the way I’m born.” …
But the Boy Scouts of America defended the child’s ouster, pointing out to the newspaper the “child does not meet the requirements to participate in this program.”
“Gender identity isn’t related to sexual orientation,” BSA spokesperson Effie Delimarkos told the New York Daily News.
In other words, the child was not kicked out for being transgender. The child was kicked out for not being a boy.
Response: The BSA has already been forced to make changes in their sexual orientation policies. The biggest challenge before the organization lately has been by atheists attacking a basic member requirement for a general belief in God. Now this ‘transgender’ controversy.
I believe that this was a fabricated and well planned attack by a radical parent who was more interested in creating 15 minutes of issue oriented notoriety than being concerned for the well being of her own child or other children. The girl in question says that she feels ‘judged’ and rejected. I think that she was coached to make that specific reply. Doesn’t really sound like something a child would actually say.
In reality she was not judged by anyone or personally rejected. It was her own mother who knowingly and needlessly put her in that position. *Top
