Zaius Nation, probably one of the best blogs on the Internet, has made me aware of something quite, unsettling, about the Girl Scouts of America.

http://zaiusnation.blogspot.com/

gsuniform.jpg

I won't read the whole article to you, it's up on the blog, currently the latest post.
The jist of it is basically that a Christian religous group called the American Heritage Girls, run by a lady named Patti Garibay, is apparently spreading rumours about the Girl Scouts such as the above diagram, in order to attract girls away from them and their evil, lesbian, atheist, communist ways and into the light of Jesus. And that includes having them buy a variety of Veggie Tales based merchandise, earn badges at prissy pink princess parties with said DVDs and clothes and such, and learning values like subservience to male dominance, abstinence and gaining self esteem through appearance and beauty rather then content of character. Because women shouldn't have any of that!

I am shocked and appalled at how a good organization of cookie baking girls who learn things like patriotism, charity, compassion and nature skills, are being slandered by a conservative Christian group in order for said group to swindle money out of them and teach them the exact opposite in values, because it's apparently what Jesus wants.
Read the article, follow the many links referenced in it, google search this rumour (it's everywhere) and discuss.

    There should be at least one American scouting organization that gets it right.

    From what i've read of Zaius' sources, they genuinely believe that is what Girl Scouts do.

    Ethier that, or they want you to believe that so you'll have your girl join their thing instead and spend money on the necessary stuff.

    I'm not sure how many girls they actually have buying into this crap, but conservatives of the batshit crazy persuasion are eating this crap up and spitting it out as fact.

    While I'm sure it's not much worse than the amount of clothing/crap a parent buys their child for cubs/guides/scouts/brownies/whatever, the fact that they note selling dvds and crap to the kids is what catches me on this.

    No matter how much they swear up and down that it's all about the Girl Guides being an Introduction Into Satan's Lesbian Whore Army, the moment cash flow becomes an issue my suspension of disbelief becomes an order of magnitude harder to maintain.

    These aren't just any DVDs ethier. They're VeggieTales DVDs.

    I grew up on some of those episodes, and they weren't all that bad back in the day. If these people are using VeggieTales like this though... I can't imagine how bad it is now.

    Sorry no, its very simple. Before marriage you need to be subservient to your father who doesn't want you to have sex (and you should be stoned to death if you do). After marriage you need to be subservient to your husband and not use birth control(because birth control is murder). And in case your wondering the father is always right in everything they do so you don't have to worry about any kind of abuse.

    One of the reasons I'm no longer Catholic. There are too many loopholes in this line of thinking, and I as a male do not want to be married to a doormat of a female who does nothing but cook and clean.
    And that's what these people want women to be. Slaves to men, with no personality or character, dependent on men for everything. Catholics are not as bad in this regard but the idea is still there, and it's stupid.

    From a WND article on the subject:
    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.

    Holy crap, they teach those girls about peace, global warming, yoga and Zen gardens? GASP! Everyone knows that responsibility, exercise, and gardening are the devil's work!

    Every time I look at that image, I find a new favourite one.

    'Gynological Girltopia Pin'

    'AIDS for Everybody Medallion'

    It's funny because the BSA is an intolerant, bigoted organization which excludes agnostics, atheists, gays, and women, and the Girl Scouts don't do any of that!
