Girl Scouts promote lesbianism
and sell delicious Thin Mints . . .

. . . but mainly promote lesbianism:
When many parents think of Girl Scouts, they imagine young girls in uniform selling Thin Mints and Tagalong cookies – not learning about stone labyrinths, world peace, global warming, yoga, avatars, smudging incense, Zen gardens and feminist, communist and lesbian role models.
But that's exactly what many of 2.7 million Girl Scouts will learn about with a new curriculum called "Journeys" released last year. . . .
Conservatives saw this one coming down the pike a few years ago, when the Boy Scouts got raked over the coals for prohibiting gay scoutmasters and the Girl Scouts were so quiet you could hear the crickets chirping.

Back in the day, Bill Buckley* postulated a law of organizational dynamics:
All institutions that are not explicitly conservative will eventually become liberal.
Fast-forward to 2009, and all institutions that do not explicitly prohibit homosexuality will eventually become pro-gay. So next time the Girl Scouts come knocking at your door selling cookies, try not to notice they're now wearing flannel shirts, butch haircuts and sensible shoes.

And if you're foolish enough to let your own child join the Girl Scouts, don't complain when they come back from their annual camporee spouting quotations from Mary Daley and Shulamith Firestone.
"Really, mom, what kind of self-hating homophobic collaborationist are you?"
"Homophobic? Why, I don't . . ."
"We're being oppressed by the patriarchy!"
"Oppressed? What are you . . ."
"It's dad! Don't you see? He's exploiting us!"
Future Femi-Nazis of America!

* -- A commenter suggests Robert Conquest as the originator of the maxim I've attributed to Buckley.

UPDATE II: Linked at the Creative Minority Report. When dealing with feminist dogma, it is important always to be as harsh as possible.

Feminist ideology is so self-evidently counterfactual that only a fool could believe it. Ergo, you should never address a feminist as if you were speaking to a person deserving solicitude, respect and deference, but rather comport yourself as if confronted by an unruly brat throwing a tantrum.

National Offend a Feminist Week was a rousing success. Some of us celebrate all year long.

UPDATE II: Linked at Stop the ACLU and Pirate's Cove. I'm hoping we get some more linkage so this shows up at Memeorandum. Then Amanda Marcotte and Jessica Valenti will denounce the patriarchal homophobia, and I'll ride the tsunami of hate to 10,000+ visits tomorrow. So link me now, you misogynistic right-wing bloggers, and we'll all catch a wave.


  1. Yeah, a few years ago they got rid of the cute little uniforms we all wore and started making the awards contingent on innerbeautystrengthetc instead of community service. Oh well. I guess I'll have to remember the good old days when being a girl scout meant selling cookies to servicemen in 2 feet of snow...

  2. Damn it! Little girls were the only group left who didn't know white men were exploiting them. Now who are we going to exploit? Do robots know we are exploiting them yet?

  3. Which is why my daughters are going into the American Heritage Girls instead.

  4. Well, that and abortion, egalitarianism (just because you are weaker does not mean you cannot lift just as much weight), and all the rest. Yeah, I stopped buying cookies from the monsters in the making almost a decade ago, for stated reasons. It wouldn't surprise me, as leftist as the organization has gotten, if they don't just start selling the girls, the cookies will be house presents.

    I am really hoping they don't f'up the boy scouts next. If that works like public schools, the boys will end up being "perks". Keep it straight or end it.

  5. Buckley, or Robert Conquest?To add to the confusion, I think it was actually John O'Sullivan.

  6. I thought it was Sullivan's Law

  7. Why can't Lefties just leave other people's children alone?

  8. because they have so few of their own

  9. That "girl scout logo" is absolutely hilarious!

    of course, this is yet another reason my girls aren't girl scouts.

  10. The boys scouts are part of the evil right wing conspiracy remember. Don't you know? They are homophobes for not letting homosexuals be leaders. Just ask the city of Philadelphia.

  11. "all institutions that do not explicitly prohibit homosexuality will eventually become pro-gay."

    I think John Derbyshire said this a few years ago.

    It's actually rather easy to see how it would happen. In the general back and forth of life, a momentary clot of homosexuals may form in an institution that is "tolerant". Other homosexuals migrate in to associate with them. To accomodate this presence, the institution becomes increasingly "tolerant" of overt homosexual behavior. This attracts more homosexuals. The remaining heterosexuals in the institution are disturbed by overt homosexual behavior, repulsed by sexual overtures from homosexuals, and presumed homosexual by outsiders: they leave.

    Watch what happens in the armed forces once the ban is rescinded.

  12. This is why 25 years ago my friend's mom would not let her join the Girl Scouts. My friend was a Campfire girl instead.
