Buck Angel: Support the Girl Scouts & Buy Cookies

One teen girl has called for the national boycott of girl scout cookies because they allow transgendered boys to participate in their programs.  You so know that her parents are behind this.  She took her call to youtube and so did Buck Angel:

I always remind my friends that gender is fluid.  There are as many babies born intersex (ambiguous genitals) as there are babies born with red hair.  So if you know someone with red hair you know someone who is intersex.  And that doesn't cover children who feel that they were born in the wrong body. 

It's so sad that we insist of the girl/boy - pink/blue dichotomy at birth.  What do genitals have to do with joining the Girl Scouts anyway?
