The Girl Scouts of Colorado are allowing 7-year-old Bobby Montoya to join a local troop because he is “living life as a girl.”
Rachelle Trujillo, vice president of communications with the Girl Scouts of Colorado told CNSNews.com (video below): “We make the distinction that if a child is living life as a girl and the family brings the child to us and says my daughter wants to be a Girl Scout, we welcome her,”
The boy's mother, Felisha Archuleta, said a local troop leader initially told her that Bobby could not join the troop because he was a boy, but the statewide organization responded to inquiries from the media by saying that Girls Scouts is “an inclusive organization” and that Bobby would be allowed to join.
“We have privacy rights that we are very respectful of with families,” Trujillo said. “We do not require proof of gender when a family wants their daughter to be a member of Girl Scouts.”
Trujillo said boys who are living like boys will not be admitted: “The child must be living life as a girl."
