Girl Scout Launches Cookie Boycott Campaign After Organization's Inclusion Of Transgender Child (VIDEO)

Commented Jan 14, 2012 at 20:35:12 in Gay Voices

“And that some young girl should be taught such ignorance to make an issue of boycotting girl scout cookies because of a transgender child's inclusion in the program is pathetic. We, as a society, should be doing all we can to rid ourselves of these pathetic minds who obsess over nonsense and hold us back...from moving forward as a cultrure. ENOUGH OF THE IGNORANCE.”

“Well, some people think removing your genitals is nonsense, or transgenderism itself is nonsense.”

“I agree with you that this young lady is the victim of ignorance and misguidance. She makes extensive use of quotes, and all the way though I kept thinking that these quotes would be appropriate except for certain facts. The key one is that a trans girl is NOT a boy. I'm sure she (or whoever is filling her head with this stuff) would argue that a trans girl is a boy because she was born with boy anatomy. In that case, I suppose that would leave out anyone born with ambiguous genitalia as well. Of course, that would mean applying logic to the situation and it is pretty obvious that fear, hate, and hysteria are in charge here.”

“BS that means your idea is CORRECT. She is entitled to her opinion and belief. So lets see how many girl scouts agree with her. You are making them pawns in your socializing.”

“I'd like to start a boycott of ignorant religious zealoty - against those who use their religious beliefs to find a reason to always be AGAINST someone or something instead of using it to focus on improving their own lives - since these are the people who really should be focusing on their own improvement. It is always those who feel so insignificant themselves that need to use their time, efforts, etc., to go after others rather then work on themselves. It is so out of hand in this country - we submit to moronic perspectives like "intelligent design" taught as science or wasting energy debating whether giving loving, committed couples equal rights under the law, regardless of gender is the right thing to do. Religion as we know it perceptions of "God"; so obviously come from the minds of men & not "God" - as evidenced by "God created MAN in HIS own image" What they really had in mind was that Man created God in HIS own image with his enlarged ego & small prespective as it relates to the bigger picture. There is so much more to the truth then the small minds whose perceptions influece mainstream thought now. And what predominates now would not if it weren't for all the aggression, violence, murder, torture and destruction - which continues today - to enforce what is supposedly the message of "God". It is madness that we cannot free ourselves from this insanity. us back...from moving forward as”

“I wish there were more Soros' with the wealth and wherewithall who took the position he does. He's right about the way Tea Partiers are being duped & used and are ill informed about the agenda they're supporting. American's are being used to work against their own best interest. It's a pity how pathetic so much of the country has become playing into the hands of dishonest, self-serving power grabbers with a distinctly different agenda then the one they profess to have. Using the simple to benefit these already benefitting more from manipulation of the system.”

“Anyone who would take a dolt like Sarah Palin seriously for the presidency of the US needs their own intelligence and mental capacity examined. She is utterly unprepared and would be an absolute disaster. One the one hand I hope the tea party laden GOP selects her because I KNOW there are enough Americans who would still do whatever it took to make sure the office never went to so ill prepared a candidate. On the other hand it would be disheartening to think there are enough American's with brains so fired on a diet of Faux News and its spinoffs that they would seriously consider it. This woman is a national joke. Nothing more...unless you want to include oppurtunist milking the dim for as much wealth as she can take them for.”

You're Out: 20 Things That Became Obsolete This Decade (PHOTOS)

“Only someone with no clue about the reality of tavel agents would add them to this list. As an agent myself, I am doing more & BETTER business then ever before. We love the internet & we love that people can go & book their air tickets & easy itineraries direct with the internet. We're happy that there's someplace for those whose priority is only the rock bottom price to find what they're looking for. What goes misunderstood by those who do not use agents is all the incredible value & service provided - & often we're able to source better rates. The lowest prices only being offered via the internet is a falicy. It was once true as they tried to establish this belief. But now they're pricing the same or higher as many agents can & do get. What our clients also get are countless special benefits because of our relationships w/ those we work with, assistance they'd never get from an online booking engine, insider information on destinations, even things like reservations at restaurants they could not get on their own. One of the most unknown or misunderstood realities is the incredible value & service a GOOD travel professional provides. There are many & whether you pay a fee or the agent waives it - the value one would get in most circumstances far exceeds the cost. Travel agents are one of the most valuble resources around with a vital purpose the internet will never make obsolete.”

“So much for "Country First". Seems more like - us (Pepublicans) first - screw democracy, screw our history, screw freedom and liberty. And to hell with the truth. They are simply about power - for themselves and those they serve (big business). The sad little sheep who assist them to their own detriment...very sad. And look at what a mess they have given us. Their ability to not acknowledge nor accept any responsibility for what they've created is astonishing. They need to be stopped - not just now but for good. They belong in prisons, not politics. And America does deserve better then more of this kind of politics. Rethugs need to be purged from our government. And incoming Democrats need to step up and get it right so we are not subjected to more GOP destructive influence in the future. Maybe then they'll finally clean themselves up and shake the absurd influence of the fundamentalis zealots - you know the kind who think Sarah Palin would make a great VP! You know the Sarah who got punked by a fake Sarkozy!! All the hints and she missed everyone! Dimwits should never again be running this country.”

“Extremist religious zealots are the greatest danger facing this nation. They seem to ignore the history of this country - that it was forged by the wills of those who understood the importance of separating church and state. Based on this - who are the most un-American Americans? I find the type of religious faith being peddled in America today , which weds itself to politics and stomps out into society to claim more & more believers and pronounces every act it approves is God's will manifesting through them to be the most dispicable and dangerous element at work today. The dangers are many. We've seen the absurdity, the drain and the very negative influence its impact has saddled our society with over and over again. Without any other reason to not be a heartbeat away from the Presidency...anyone with beliefs as radically extreme as Sarah Palin's is reason enough.”

“McCain w/ all his experience, his "Maverick" moniker, his ability to "face down America's enemies" as he likes to say and he can't even handle facing a reporter? The GOP & their "leaders" grow more pathetic, impotent & inane as we go along. This is the party who REJECTED McCain for Bush!! What a bright move that was...and now that McCain has become a full blown panderer & all common sense has left the brain matter, he just can't stop making blunder after blunder. It's sad to think there really might be enough naive, unthinking, fundamentalist sheep mentality people in this country to give this joke of a ticket & nightmare of a party a further chance at power. Who cannot see the massive damage done by these self-serving blowhards? We really cannot let these destructive minions hold power anymore...a look back at the last eight years is a stark look at our nation in severe decline. We deserve freedom from phoney religion & freedom from unending greed of big business...the GOP's true master. We deserve to be better served by the media - who have allowed the likes of Faux News & loud mouthed right wing spin lizards to dictate the tenor of national dialogue. They're so biased they're absurd, yet they bray about the liberal media and said media goes out of its way to bais their reporfing in favor of the unseemly, whining GOP! Get a backbone & some guts & go after this vile machine poluting”
