So, we here at Three Yards are huge fans of female empowerment.
Looks like our Google Image Search Robot got confused…we were thinking more along the lines of this:
That’s a little more like it. Anywho, that being said, it makes coming across a story like this on Twitter that makes us cringe a bit.
GOP lawmaker calls Girl Scouts a 'radicalized organization' that promotes homosexuality huff.to/wUrg6I—
Huffington Post (@HuffingtonPost) February 20, 2012
*cough* WHAT? You’ve got to be fucking kidding, right? Wrong. Bob Morris, a Republican legislator from the great Hoosier state of Indiana, apparently hates the Girl Scouts so much, not only is he removing his two daughters from the organization, he’s voting against a celebratory resolution (not a law, or a tax, but a CELEBRATORY FUCKING RESOLUTION) to recognize the 100th anniversary of the Scouts.
In all fairness, the guy does kind of look like a douche right from the get-go, so who’s really surprised here?
Basically, Morris states “confirmed sources” (what have we learned about Internet news, kids? We make half this shit up. No joke) that say the Girl Scouts organization is an arm of Planned Parenthood (ooooooh) and:
Morris goes on to say those considered role models by the Girl Scouts are all “feminists, lesbians, or Communists” and claims that troops are no longer allowed to pray or sing Christmas Carols. – Huffington Post
So, in case anyone reading this is still taking Morris seriously, you can find his full letter to the Indiana legislature here. Also, if you’re interested in letting Rep. Morris know what a flaming ball of cocksuckery he is, here’s his official bio and contact page. Let him know Three Yards sent you!
As we like to end on a positive note, here’s a little treat for you. Enjoy.
