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

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.
