Colorado Girl Scouts Say Boy Welcome to Join

Girl Scouts of Colorado says it made a mistake when it rejected a 7-year-old boy's application to join.

Bobby Montoya says he wanted to join his sister in the group and the rejection hurt. His mother says Bobby behaves like a girl.

When Montoya learned he was unable to join, he told WTSP.com, “It’s hurting my heart. It hurts me and my mom both.

"It was like somebody told me I can't like girl stuff, and I have to change my name to something else," Montoya told the station.

According to KUSA-TV, the Girl Scouts issued a statement saying a worker unfamiliar with the group's policies gave the family wrong information.

The group says requests for support of transgender kids have grown, and Girl Scouts of Colorado is working to support the children, their families and the volunteers who serve them.
