Pants are the mindkiller.

Research a "Tim Tam Slam" as well. The caramels are the best.

"Evil" is probably the wrong word. "Systematically discriminatory" is probably a more accurate choice of words. I'm sure thousands of boys have great experiences, and obviously you did. I'm sure they teach great lessons too. Unfortunately, one of those lessons is that homosexuals aren't fit to be leaders or trusted with children, and I can't abide by that. For that kind of bigotry I'll throw the baby out with the bathwater. And that mandate does come from the organization as a whole, not the troupe leaders or the scouts.

I apologize if it sounds like I'm picking on you. I'm really not trying to, and I don't want to disparage your positive experiences. Personally, I just have a zero tolerance policy for any organization that is willfully against equal treatment for all humans.

I should clarify, I view the Girl Scouts as the "good" side of that coin in terms of inclusiveness and their stance on civil/human rights and discrimination.

You're both correct that the shortbreads ARE delicious. Sometimes the simpler flavors are the best. They don't overwhelm the palette (which is sort of exactly what most GS cookies do). If you ever want to know how good an ice cream brand is, try their vanilla.

You have Tim Tams. You lack for nothing.

The important thing to remember, is to stop the car before plowing THROUGH the table of Girl Scouts.

The two organizations in America couldn't be more different ideologically. They are essentially the good and evil sides of the same coin in terms of their "core values" with regards to civil rights and basic human equality. I would assume the Canadian organization is an entirely separate entity. And OF COURSE it makes more sense not to quarantine children off by gender. If I had a son, I'd rather him join Girl Scouts.

I prefer to think if GS cookies as an annual event like an eclipse. Every 12 months you get to eat an entire box of cookies in 2 days and only sort of mostly feel like a giant piece of shit. I couldn't live that lifestyle year round.
