While there have been those who have attacked the Girl Scouts for allowing Bobby Montoya to be a member, there are those who are supporting her and the Girl Scouts for being trans-inclusive. TransYouth Family Allies or TYFA has launched a web page to assist Bobby and her newly minted Girl Scouts troop.
Here is what they say on their website:
Bobby Montoya was in the news in 2011 after seeking to join a local Girl Scout troop. Girl Scouts of Colorado released a statement supporting trans youth, saying “If a child identifies as a girl and the child’s family presents her as a girl, Girl Scouts of Colorado welcomes her as a Girl Scout.”
Bobby Montoya’s Girl Scout Cookie Drive
Bobby is a member of a newly-formed Girl Scouts Colorado Troop. Any donations made online will go toward cookies that will be distributed to their hometown charity, Mount Saint Vincent Home, which has assisted over 18,000 abused and neglected Colorado children since 1883. Proceeds will also go to Boots on the Ground, which distributes Girl Scout Cookies to active-duty military servicemembers.
