Basic run-down of the story: 7 year old boy who looks like a girl, plays with girl toys, and act like a girl (most likely because he is transgendered), wants to join the girl scouts. However he can't because technically speaking he's biologically male and the troop leader wouldn't allow that. It's unfortunate, but makes one think that exceptions should be made for transgendered kids in these situations, and that tolerance should be considered a virture.
Not for the conservitards however. The mass of the comment section of this article is sickning, predjudice, ignorant, and downright idiotic:

In the rush to be politically correct and protect this little boy's "civil rights," has anyone considered how uncomfortable the addition of a boy will make the girls in the troop feel? I guess that doesn't matter.Good grief...seriously??? Boys can like dolls and girls can like football, but that DOESN'T make them transgendered! Girl scouts is for girls and boy scouts is for boys, and this little boy is simply too young to understand differently without the guidance of an adult with a little common sense. Our world is falling apart under the adult supervision of complete morons!Are there no boundaries left in society?Good Lord, my kid thought he was a dog when he was 2. Should we have let him move out to the dog house out back?What a JOKE this country is becoming and all do to being politically correct.... No common sense!!!!!!!!!!!Why can't parents be parents and just say NO! Since when does a 7 year old decide that they don't like that answer and want to get their way anyway-Be a parent, not a friend and activist-Tell your kid no and that's IT. This world is getting impossible to live in.Oh, for crying out loud! It's the GIRL Scouts. Girl Scouts, as in not Boy Scouts. This mom needs to shut up and tell her boy that life isn't always going to work out like you want it to... This is one of many more disappointments life is going to throw his way.I fear that liberalism and progress may soon die from the idiocy of the massess.How does a 7 year old know he wants to be a girl?
