The Girl Scouts Who Turned Down A $100,000 Donation To Allow Transgender Members Are True Bros

by 4 years ago

We here at BroBible often get asked what it means to be Bro.

To be honest, even after 18 months of doing this job, I don’t have a great answer. A Bro can be something as simple as a dude wearing some khakis and a shirt.

“Hey, get a load of that Bro.”

Or a Bro is the guy who’s always down to drink a beer. Or someone who bones lots of models. Total Bro move, boning models.

I, personally, like to think of a Bro as a generally decent, generally harmless guy who likes to have fun. But it’s like the test for obscenity. I know it when I see it.

And though they are 8, 9 and 10-year-old girls, the Girl Scouts of Western Washington are Bros in the truest sense of the word. Because when a $100,000 donation came their way with a stipulation that they could only accept the money if they refused to admit transgender girls, they said “Nah, B.”

Even though that’s a third of their budget for a whole year.

Why’d they do it? Because not letting girls of any sorts be a Girl Scout is a hella not Bro thing to do. And Girls Scouts are Bros.

“Girl Scouts is for every girl,” [CEO Megan Ferland said] “And every girl should have the opportunity to be a Girl Scout if she wants to.”

That’s Bro, yo.

And you know how I know how? An IndieGoGo page they started after this to recoup some of the funds has already earned them twice the original donation.
