Scouts Honor

Bobby Montoya is your typical seven year old. She spends her time playing with dolls, wearing dresses, and causing a nationwide controversy. In late October, her mother took her to their local Girl Scout troop to start participating. They were denied membership, because even though Bobby lives and “acts” like a young girl, she was born a male. The director told a heartbroken Bobby that since she was born with “boy parts”, she couldn’t join in on the crafting and cookie selling. Just this past week, Bobby’s case was reevaluated by the troop leaders, who have decided that there is no valid reason to deny this little girl her dream of “doing a good turn daily”.

In a response to this decision, a California teenager, known only as “Taylor” has made a YouTube video, urging mothers to protect their children from transgendered individuals. How? Simple, she says, ban Girl Scout cookies until the GSUSA (Girl Scouts of the United States if America) stops allowing children like Bobby to participating in their activities. After public outcries of disappointment and anger, the video was taken down by the girl. It turns out that she is the daughter of an anti-LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgendered) group known as Honest Girl Scouts, whose sole purpose is to damage the reputation of this century old organization (as well as Planned Parenthood) simply because they give all females all of their rights. Most of the bigoted video can be viewed here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=TD41W5mIWmY#!

We, as a society, put way too much pressure on the gender roles of children. For example, In Boy Scouts, boys go camping in the woods, they fish, and tie knots, whereas Girl Scouts may have museum sleepovers, do arts and crafts, and (of course) sell their famous cookies. Why should the interests of children be determined by their born sex? Better yet, what gives us the right to allow only certain children to participate in certain activities? We live in day and age where gender isn’t black and white, but rather, a rainbow of possibilities and it’s high time that we accept it. 

anonymous asked:

(1) hi! this isn't actually about a teen, but this is the best place i could find to ask... so i had noticed that my five-year-old "brother" really liked roleplaying as a girl, a princess, etc. and also liked long hair, wearing "girl clothes," etc. so today i asked "him" if '"he" was a boy or a girl. "he" replied something along the lines of "i think i'm kind of a girl, on the inside" without knowing anything about transgender people or anything beforehand. she asked us to use she/her pronouns..

and to call her Liz. (us is me and my 9-year-old sister). we also brought her into our room and let her try on some of our clothes so she could feel pretty, which she liked. she now has been saying she’s not sure she’s entirely a girl, but she confirmed that she still wants she/her pronouns. but she doesn’t want to be out to our parents or brother yet, so we’re using “he” pronouns and her birth name in public. i’m just not sure what to do, since i, being on tumblr, am her primary source of advice and guidance relating to gender, and i have to keep it a secret from almost everyone. plus, she’s only five, which really won’t help if/when she decides to “come out.” idk what i’m really asking for, but any help/resources for people with really young trans people or any general advice would be welcome. thanks! -liz’s sister (also if you post this, could you tag it “liz is a girl” so i can find it? thanks!!) (also, we’re in pennsylvania if you need to know)

Emery says:

First of all, I’m so glad your sister has such amazing siblings who are there to support her and welcome her. I’m so, so glad. Really. You don’t even know how fucking valuable it is for a young trans person to have someone there to love and support them.

I would offer to show her some videos/stories of young trans kids, especially girls, like Jazz Jennings who came out when she was like five and is really famous, and Coy Mathis, and Bobby Montoya, and Harriette Cunningham. They’re not the only ones, too. Maybe seeing some other youngsters would help Liz figure herself out.

Make sure she knows you’re there as a resource, someone to talk to, and that you’re willing to answer her questions or help her find answers if you don’t know. Really, having someone supportive is so important. Along this same line, call her Liz and she when you can. Help her to feel affirmed - and also to test out this name and pronouns! Make sure she knows she can tell you if she changes her mind, or wants to try a different name, or anything. 

Be careful not to out her to your family or anyone else. She gets to chose when/if to come out, and how, and to whom. Make this an empowering experience for Liz, so she gets to take charge of her life and herself.

And if she does decide to come out, be there to support her, love her, and help her if your parents are not accepting. Best of luck to you and Liz, and tell her I’m sending my love.
