I've had some parents in our all Catholic Girl Scout Troop start asking questions of me because they are hearing about this stuff:

I've seen a few of these stories in the news. I don't remember reading that some of the decisions were made by Girl Scouts USA or if they were made at a local level.

Did the lady you spoke with send you the links yet?

I did read an article about the boy who wants to be a girl joining a troop. The article never said if the boy really joined or if he was tagging along or what.

I have not seen anything about planned parenthood and girl scouts being mixed like that, but I know planned parenthood is supported by the United Way and so is scouting...

I'm interested in hearing if you get a response that addresses the website's claims.

Jen, there is a post further down on the main menu about just that topic of a transgender boy joining Girl Scouts.

Have you gotten any new information yet? I've been meaning to ask my sister if she's had any similar questions/comments from parents, but I haven't seen her lately (she works full time, goes to school, and is a leader).
