The Colorado Girl Scouts have said they would allow a 7-year-old boy to join after initially rejecting his application, the Christian Post reports. Bobby Montoya, who dresses like a girl, loves playing with dolls and has "loved girl stuff" since the age of two, wants to join his sister in the group. A troop leader initially told him he could not join because he was a boy, but the Girl Scouts released a statement saying Bobby's family had been given the wrong information: "If a child identifies as a girl and the child's family presents her as a girl, Girl Scouts of Colorado welcomes her as a Girl Scout." The Girl Scouts have said they have received a lot of requests to support transgender kids and that they would support these children and their families.
