So little Mary is a girl scout and she’s out selling cookies to support her troop, how wonderful. We all know the Girl Scouts, they build girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place. In Girl Scouts, girls discover the fun, friendship, and power of girls together, through a myriad of enriching experiences!
Oh, how wonderful. Oh, how deceiving. The Girl Scouts of America deny having any involvement or partnership with PP, but the money trail says otherwise … for the whole scoop check out this site: HonestGirlScouts — it offers a detailed timeline of GSUSA’s commitment to PP. While GSUSA donwright denies all the allegations, the proof is insurmountable.
The Girl Scouts came under rapid fire last year after a brochure entitled, “Happy, Healthy and Hot” was leaked. You see, the World Association of Girl Scouts and Girl Guides hosted a no-adults-welcome (first red flag) panel at the United Nations in 2010 where Planned Parenthood was allowed to distribute this indecent brochure. The event was part of the annual United Nations Commission on the Status of Women (CSW) to which GSUSA sends teenage ambassadors. Teenage Ambassadors! Why do I sound so aghast? Read on … if you dare!
The brochure, aimed at young people (ages 10-25) living with HIV, contains explicit and graphic details on sex, as well as the promotion of casual sex in oh so many different forms. The brochure claims, “Many people think sex is just about vaginal or anal intercourse… But, there are lots of different ways to have sex and lots of different types of sex. There is no right or wrong way to have sex. Just have fun, explore and be yourself!”
The brochure goes on to encourage young people to “Improve your sex life by getting to know your own body. Play with yourself! Masturbation is a great way to find out more about your body and what you find sexually stimulating. Mix things up by using different kinds of touch from very soft to hard. Talk about or act out your fantasies. Talk dirty to them.”
Gasp!! It’s obviously not your mother’s Girl Scouts any longer. Lest you forget, this is not a sexual encounter weekend for married adults, this is for our young daughters … did you read above … youngsters ages 10! to 24. This brochure continues into the realm of horror stating, that national laws requiring HIV-positive people to reveal their status to their partner(s) “violate the rights of people living with HIV” and calls for advocacy to “change laws that violate your rights.” Now that is downright atrocious.
Absolutely appalling in my mind. I grew up never reading anything worse than Judy Blume and even that my mother banished from our home. We wonder why our daughters are so sexually charged, why teenage pregnancy is reaching alarming rates, why over 4,000 babies are aborted daily in the US alone. Where are the parents? Where are the role models? So many otherwise innocuous organizations, businesses, and non-profits are rendering you mute by thrusting such garbage down our daughters throats. Empowering my ass …
You want to be empowered, open your eyes and become pro-active … check out the list compiled by LDI: Life Decisions International: Life Decisions International do your own research and get involved. I know I never let my guard down … I don’t trust a living soul to tell me the truth! Guard your children … the devil’s in the details!
