OCTOBER 31, 2011

BRUCE A.
BRENNAN BLOG FROM THE WORLD AND MY MIND

The news as
I see it and the views as I want them.

October 31 is … National Magic Day and Increase Your Pyschic
Powers Day

 

You figure this one out.

 

Ross and Heather, five more days until it is forever!

 

What are the day of the year with the fewest births and day of the year
with the most births? In the span of ten years (1996-2006) researchers
calculated that on Valentine’s Day, there is a 3.6% increase in spontaneous
births — births outside of a pregnant women’s control — and a 12.1% increase
in Caesarean Sections. On Halloween, however, there’s a 5.3% decrease in
spontaneous births and a 16.9% decrease in Caesarean births.

 

This is a good day for a freakish story. Change
is not always good. Many people resist change and remember a simpler, gentler
and more normal time. This story tells of a mistake and the homogenizing of
society. Bobby Montoya often dresses like a girl, plays with girl’s toys, and
most recently, wants to become a Girl Scout, apparently by magic.

 

But when his mother, Felisha Archuleta, brought
him to a local troop leader, the child’s dreams were dashed. According to 9
News, the Girl Scouts worker said the child could not join, regardless of how
the 7-year-old feels, because Bobby had “boy parts.”

 

“I said, ‘Well, what’s the big deal?’ She
said ‘It doesn’t matter how he looks, he has boy parts, he can’t be in Girl
Scouts. Girl Scouts don’t allow that [and] I don’t want to be in trouble by
parents or my supervisor,'” Archuleta told 9 News.

 

Bobby was heartbroken. Too bad; disappointment
is part of life. It helps people learn and get along.

 

According to Fox News, the Girl Scouts of
Colorado have since admitted a mistake was made. Apparently the worker who
turned Montoya away was unfamiliar with the group’s policies, and Bobby is now
welcome to join the group. It’s unclear as to whether or not he has decided to
join in light of the reversal.

 

Requests for transgender children to join the
Girl Scouts have grown according to Fox News, and the group has been working to
support them and their families. However, Bobby’s struggles go beyond the Girl
Scouts experience. In an interview with 9 News, Montoya says how difficult it
can be, especially in school. Often Montoya feels bullied or gets teased
because of the way he dresses and acts. Bobby doesn’t want these actions to
cause change, but admits being made fun of can hurt, and even his mother feels
the pain.

 

Bullying due to sexual orientation or gender
identity has long been an issue, most recently in the wake of the suicide of
14-year-old Jamey Rodemeyer last month. While Rodemeyer’s case is certainly
different from Montoya’s both situations have shed light on the struggles of
LGBT youth.

 

Why does a seven year-old get to change the rules. This child is too
young to make a stand or decide to join the Girl Scouts without a significant
amount of pushing by a parent. You do not have to be a psychic to see the
mother is using her child to get her fifteen minutes of fame and it is
sickening and should be illegal. The mother is selfish and self-centered.

 

Just a couple of thoughts I had and you should too or at least think
about.
