Young boy wishes to join Girl Scouts
Yahoo News ^ | 10/26/2011 | Mike Krumboltz

Bobby Montoya is a 7-year-old boy from Denver. Unlike a lot of young boys, Bobby has no desire to join the Boy Scouts. Instead, he wants to be a Girl Scout.

We first saw Montoya's story over at 9news.com. The NBC affiliate reports that when the boy's mother, Felisha Archuleta, tried to sign her son up for Girl Scouts, a troop leader told her no.

A statement by Rachelle Trujillo, vice president of communications at Girl Scouts of Colorado: "Girl Scouts is an inclusive organization, and we accept all girls in kindergarten through 12th grade as members. If a child lives life as a girl and the family brings the child to us to participate in Girl Scouts, Girl Scouts of Colorado welcomes her".

Sickening! It's been 17 years since I told my daughter she could NOT join the Girl Scouts and things have only got worse!

The Girl Scouts take a stand! Bobby has to become “transgendered,” and only then can he join. At least they’re drawing a line somewhere.

"If a child lives life as a girl ..."

What a convoluted statement. How about simply, "If the child IS a girl ..."?

I’m just grateful that the BSA still holds to the standards that has made them great.

The Girl Scouts are run by leftist feminists it sounds like.

Parents need to know how to say “no”

I would never send a kid to public school if I could help it, no way the Girl Scouts or YWCA these days

Way to go Girl Scounts.

You never fail to underwhelm with your relentless drive towards “progressive mediocrity”. (Oops, I’m afraid I’ve committed an Oxymoron there.

I would normally say, if he wants to join he has to wear the skirt, but that is probably exactly what his parents want. These people have to be demon possessed; they want to break down every hint of human decency.

The poor kid looks like a girly girl but it is not clear his mother is checking “female” under the gender block, as the so-called policy statement requires.

How will GSUSA react when a 13 or 16 yr old boy wants to be a Girl Scout and sleep in tents with the girls?

Troops are led by volunteers who get to vote with their feet, I suppose.

Because the Mainstream Press doesn't acknowledge any differences in the sexes nor any reason to protect girls or boys.

The Boy Scouts have been attacked mercilessly by the Press for not taking in Homosexual Scout leaders ignoring the fact that predation does occur and that even one rape is unacceptable in our culture.

The Mainstream Press is not even good sewage these days, it is toxic sludge.

I remember as a teen, I took a course in High School called Health Careers. It had 3 boys, including me in the class and 12 girls. Yeah, I’d like to join the girl scouts, would be a blast!

If he were a teenager, I’d say he wanted to be an “Explorer” scout. But he’s seven, which makes me wonder about his family and upbringing.

Some years ago, the daughter of a friend of mine wanted to join the GS. This girl had more character in her little finger than a whole troop of scouts. She was told they were not accepting new members. The troop leader had all she could handle. That was that.
But that was then. (Less than 10 yrs ago.) And that was a normal girl.

Boys have always wanted to join the Girl Scouts for this very reason, LOL.

In this case, someone needs to take that kid to the hardware store and buy him power tools.

Character had nothing to do with that.

Troop leaders are unpaid volunteers and when they have all the girls they feel they can can handle (5-10-20 or 30) they do not have to accept any more girls into their troop.
Anyone who has tried to manage 22 1-3rd graders after school, with only an occasional parent helper, like I did, understands this.

That is when a parent who is told the troop is full, has to step up and start a new troop.

And THAT is character.

Why do I have this feeling that it isn’t the little boy who wants it, it’s his parents pushing for this. At age 7 they don’t know what they want unless it’s the latest new toy.

You sound somewhat defensive, and you have misunderstood the thrust of my comment. I was not saying that there is anything wrong with the troop leader using her discretion and deciding when a troop is at the limit of girls she thinks she can handle.

As for character, it used to be considered a qualification for scouting. Nowadays it wouldn't surprise me if being a girl isn't necessary. In any case, the girl I referred to would have been a splendid addition to the troop, and that is all.

As for "when a parent who is told the troop is full, has to step up and start a new troop...THAT is character;" surely you realize not every parent is able to do that, and being unable does not reflect on their character.

And this is the nonsense that WE have to deal with on our end. Ma’am, I appreciate that you want your girl in OUR troops, but for the exact same reason it destroys the boy scouts.

I used to be a leader of a troop, and did my time in one. We quit and folded up tents when we were told that we HAD to accept girls. It. Just. Doesn’t. Work.

“Character” was never a qualification for Scouting.
There was and is no pretest.

Character formation and education was and is one of the goals of Scouting for its members.

Now, a kid (especially older) who will not live by the GS Law- can be denied troop membership by a Troop leader whio can document and jusify - and let Council find her another placement situation

Joining Scouts requiresonly the desire and eligibility to join (by age, and at least formerly, by gender)

And when someone’s post uses an example of a friend’s grudge from a “normal” girl being turned away from a GS troop “many years ago” then what is the implication?

Yes I get defensive.

As a GS placement coordinator, I hear all the excuses and whining in the world about why someone else should be a Troop leader and take their child into their GS troop because the requesting(or demanding or whining) parent is just too busy

I wouldn’t be a GS if my mother didn’t start a troop (widowed single parent of 3 kids under 8, working shifts as a nurse, and going to night school for a master’s degree)
and my daughter wouldn’t be a GS if I didn’t start a troop

So yep, THAT is character. Complaining for “many years” that a wonderful normal kid was turned away from a GS troop (whatever that implies) ... is not...imho

I am the scout leader. My son is the scout, my youngest daughter enjoyed learning the scout stuff. I bought her the awards she earned them. BSA has "mommyed" up the cub scouts so bad and to many liberals have gotten involved that you really can't take a group of cub scouts camping anymore unless the parents and siblings go too. She is disappointed her brother and I have move on to Boy scouts because she wont be aloud to participate anymore.

BTW: I have been with Scouts since I was a BOY 35 years ago. I have never had a problem with letting sibling learn scouting. (boy or girls). It helps keep the families involved.

Sorry, it’s just I’ve had to deal with the harridans. Our scoutmaster resigned and the whole group left with him, because they would not let him continue on as a scoutmaster (as he had been for 20 years), and stay boys-only.

We all went with him, and continued to do the activities unofficially.

I went back 10 years later and they had one troop of 3 people. 1 troop, where they had hundred of kids previously.

Usually, Glee (or maybe Twilight) is responsible for the stupid things kids do nowadays, but this sounds a lot like last week's episode of Parks and Recreation:
