There is not a single organization that trans activists do not intend to colonize. In 2017, the Boy Scouts changed their century-old policy on admission and decided to permit entrance based on “gender identity,” allowing biological girls identifying as boys to enroll. This came two years after the Girl Scouts announced that they would be accepting “transgender girls” — biological boys — to join and participate as females. The Girl Guides also stated that they would permit biological boys identifying as girls to join, and even share showers, changing rooms, and sleeping quarters with girls.
One of Robert Conquest’s three rules of politics is simple: Any organization not explicitly and constitutionally right wing will sooner or later become left wing. This has proven true time and again, as the transgender juggernaut conforms institutions according to the new dogmas and centuries-old organizations transform their views of gender overnight. As such, Christians and others seeking alternatives to these radicalized organizations are increasingly being forced to build their own alternatives outside the mainstream.
One example is American Heritage Girls, a Christian alternative to the Girl Scouts founded in 1995 by parents seeking a values-driven organization for their daughters. In a press release, founder and executive director Patti Garibay laid out the position of AHG succinctly: “Scripture is clear: There is a difference between male and female, and it is worth celebrating. Scripture defines the true nature of a woman: relational, nurturing, vulnerable, with a love for beauty and a desire to respond. God-given femininity is a gift that, when freely accepted, will bless a woman throughout her life.”
