Yep, sure are a bunch of toxic earth hugging feminazis, aren't they? Here's my group, learning to honor a (vintage) flag, and getting ready to send a letter and big bundle of cookies (over 60 boxes) to troops in Afghanistan

Yes, God bless you and what you are doing with and for these girls.

However - the GS’s as an organization is ruined.

When my little girl first became a brownie, they received books about Mother Earth, Father Sky. She came home in tears one afternoon and told me that soon all the water on the earth would be gone and then we would all die.

I had to show her the globe and talk about the water cycle on the Earth, talk about how purification works, show her pictures of the oceans and polar caps, etc before she could sleep.

They had to report on if their families recycled (we didn’t and she was ashamed). God was never mentioned. Helping others was never mentioned. No knife safety, weaving, making sit-upons, hiking, camp songs. Cookie sales were the primary goal. (Brownies didn’t even sell cookies when I was a kid)

OH! And..the kids would go straight to the meetings after school. The leader would wait until they were finishing up to give the ravenous little girls a snack, usually something dreadful like a donut or cookies. Just in time to ruin dinner.
