To complete the dumbing down, they even stopped capitalizing their own name in 2008! How intelligent to diminish your name… girl scouts of the usa… was that when they began admitting transgenders (boys who wish to be girls), too? You all know about that, too, don’t you?

Thank you for keeping on top of this important subject. What this article does not cover are the myriad other references Girl Scouts has had to remove from their website and blog as well as their books. Plus, if you are pro-life, the abortion connections Girl Scouts of the USA has is very depressing. As we type, they are financially funding the worldwide indoctrination of girls to homosexuality and explicit sex instruction using COOKIE MONEY paid by unwitting Americans. GSUSA relies on the ignorance of the public to get by with its evil agenda. Spread the word. Tell every Girl Scout family you know.

No need to miss Samoas. Keebler sells Coconut Dreams which are, I believe, exactly the same cookie at a fraction of the cost, especially now that Girl Scouts has announced they are increasing the cost of each box up to $5 in some states! BOYCOTT THOSE TAINTED COOKIES.

Tell us what “misinformation” is untrue. You complain that Studio2B is old news, but the problem that persists with Girl Scouts is they have a history and continue to show a pattern of Progressive feminist indoctrination. If they declared their liberal-left agenda and let parents decide whether or not to support it, we would just leave. What frosts us current and former Girl Scout leaders and parents is the LYING. HonestGirlScouts.com is composed of many Girl Scout families who know first-hand that everything good about scouting is at the ground level with unpaid volunteers. Girl Scouts of the USA relies on the ignorance of its members to supply them with a free, child labor force to sell $760 million of cookies a year so they can fund their promotion of explicit sex instruction and contraception for kids using “non-formal” education through scouting, and “accessible” abortion for minors without parental consent. Now that GSUSA welcomes transgenders in troops under an expanded definition of “inclusion”, they show a preference for the gay-lesbian battle cry of “gender choice” over the safety of children. In essence, they are exempting transgenders (boys who wish to be girls) from following toilet and sleeping arrangement rules other males are required to follow in order to hide the transgender’s physical sex. That is favoritism and it is dangerous. These are the REAL facts you requested. GSUSA’s banking its other 3 million members remain ignorant and just keep sell
…and those cookies are about to cost more, too! Just last week it was announced they will cost another dollar in some places bringing the cost up to $4 to $5 a box depending on where you live… http://www.startribune.com/local/161103915.html

Scrutinizing Girl Scouts is a good start. There are many Catholic parishes that host Girl Scout meetings and allow cookie sales after Mass. GSUSA needs the Catholic Church more than Catholics need a sullied extracurricular organization.

The saddest part of the story is that the local troops, on the whole, do not participate in the pro-abortion promotion, but EVERY SINGLE MEMBER contributes to it financially by selling cookies, purchasing uniforms, books, and patches and asking for donations. Girl Scouts of the USA is a giant money funnel with million$ of brand licensing fees that go towards hosting events at the United Nations to lobby for explicit sex education in the name of Global Warming “sustainability”. See it for yourself by viewing the YouTube video “WAGGGS delegate advocates for Sexual and Reproductive Rights via Climate Change Agenda at CO16″. In this video, Julie Fink, delegate from World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS) claims to represent 10 million girls (Girl Scouts of the USA making up the lion’s share of this representation and funding). She hopes all girls will talk about sex like child prostitutes in Zambia with access to contraception and abortion by “empowering” girls through non-formal education (Girl Scouts). Wake up, Girl Scout parents, this is your cookie money at work! It does not matter that your local leader is doing a good job, we Americans are all contributing to the early sexualization of children through WAGGGS by purchasing anything with a Girl Scout logo, including those over-priced cookies.

The name is cute, but the use of actual religious items is extremely disrespectful. They need to re-evaluate their goal.

You do not have to miss Thin Mints. Keebler makes “Grasshoppers” which are just Thin Mints in a different shape. They also make a clone of Samoas for those who love those coconut-caramel-fudge-covered shortbreads. So enjoy cookies without funding GSUSA.

Don’t hold your breath for Anna Maria Chavez’s reply. Although she is the new CEO for GSUSA, she has worked for Big Sis Janet Napolitano and Hillary Clinton and has been a speaker for and member of a feminist pro-abortion coalition (that includes 3 Planned Parenthood organizations) WHILE she was the CEO of the regional Girl Scout Council in Texas. For more on her connections and the other things Girl Scouts have been doing to indoctrinate our children, Google “HonestGirlScouts” and see the evidence for yourself.

Keebler also makes a great substitute for the Samoas (coconut-caramel-chocolate-on-shortbread cookies). In fact, I believe Keebler is the baker for Girl Scouts, as the GS baker name is “Little Brownie Bakers” which is sooo similar to a “Keebler Elves”, don’t you think?

Not true, Sapper. As a Girl Scout mom for 8 years, I can attest that the Councils and National have GREAT INFLUENCE on what are girls are forced to to do earn badges, now that they have REWRITTEN EVERY BOOK required to earn awards. Girls earn only an average of $25 each every year. Of the $700 million in cookie sales, COUNCILS PROFIT $490 MILLION! They are USING GIRLS, and SORELY MISLEADING THE AMERICAN PUBLIC. BOYCOTT GIRL SCOUT COOKIES! If you want to support a girl’s troop, make a direct donation to her troop with the caveat it is NOT to go towards buying cookies. OCCUPY GIRL SCOUTS.

There is a group of current and former Girl Scouts, Girl Scout leaders, parents and American citizens who have been researching this disturbing trend in Girl Scouts since 2010. Google “HonestGirlScouts” and see all the evidence for yourself: the promotion of the Progressive movement, liberal Democratic activism, pro-abortion and pro-gay/lesbian agendas all funded with COOKIE MONEY. BOYCOTT THOSE COOKIES! Girls make an average of only $25/each, but out of $700 million in sales, COUNCILS PROFIT $490 MILLION! They think Americans are bunch of ignorant cash cows as they use our girls as for FREE CHILD LABOR.
