Girl Scouts

  1. Girl Scouts Introduce Game Design Merit Badge, One Up Boy Scouts With Software Requirement


    Our ultimate goal is to create a STEM-aligned video game badge for the Girl Scouts of the United States of America. Creating this badge will get young girls excited in technology and science and let them know that they, too, can have a career in the video game industry. -- Amy Allison, vice president at Women in Games International. The Girl Scouts of Greater Los Angeles and Women in Games International are teaming up to develop requirements for a game developer badge for scouts. The Boy Scouts introduced their badge earlier this year, but the Girl Scouts version seeks to specifically focus on video game development rather than a more general focus on games of all kinds.

  2. Girl Scout Cookie Caper Case Closed, Culprit Cornered

    om nom nom

    It's a fact of life that some of us have, at some point in time, contemplated sneaking a Girl Scout Cookie away from the warm embrace of some one we know. Maybe a sibling. Maybe a friend. Just so long as they had more than they could conceivably eat in one sitting and we had none. But I can safely say that the majority of us have never contemplated stealing 450 cases of Girl Scout Cookies directly from a GSA warehouse. But I can only say "the majority" and not "all" because somebody totally did that in South Carolina last week.

  3. The Girl Scouts Create Comics, We Want To Read Them

    Girls Just Wanna Have Fun

    If you're a frequent reader of The Mary Sue, you probably already know we're a big proponent of women in comics, so when we see a potential next generation being taught the trade, we get very excited. Junior Girl Scouts of America Gables Elementary Troop 1320 eared their Drawing Badge at a recent visit to the Comics Library at Ohio State University where they learned about self-publishing, had a history lesson on women in comics, and created their own mini-comic books! Take a look. (Ohio State University Libraries Blog via Comics Alliance)

  5. Things We Saw Today: Kraft’s Pride Oreo

    Things We Saw Today

    Kraft celebrated Pride Day yesterday by posting this rainbow Oreo on its Facebook page. While the response was mostly positive -- nearly 170,000 "likes" at the time of this writing -- guess what? Some people didn't like it because of the gay. And now they're going to boycott cookies. Well, I guess they'll go eat worms. More cookies for us! Good job, Kraft! (via Business Insider)

  7. Catholic Bishops Are Investigating the Girl Scouts Because They’d Rather Not Talk About What They Do With Boys

    Meddling Kids

    Because, apparently, there are no other world issues worth looking into that might actually be offensive to practicing Catholics (like, I don't know, world hunger, children dying of starvation of disease here and abroad, things like that), the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops is conducting an "official" investigation into the Girl Scouts. They claim that since some Catholic churches sponsor Girl Scout troops, they have every right to question what is being done there, but mostly, they are concerned about affiliations with certain women's health organizations that ... yes, this is related to abortion. Abortion and Girl Scouts.

    I'm In A Glass Case of Emotion

    I might be able to top the Benedict Cumberbatch-Frankenstein thing I just posted, because there is another wonderful thing coming to America in the month of June. Remember the Girl Scout cookie-flavored Nestlé Crunch Bars we told you about a while ago? They are happening. They are real. They are coming to stores in June for a limited time. I'll provide you information on the featured flavors after the jump, and you will be very pleased.

  9. Suspects Arrested in Girl Scout Cookie Money Robbery (No Visible Scars, Though)

    For great justice

    In a glorious update of a previous story, two suspects have been arrested after allegedly robbing a troop of Girl Scouts of their cookie money in Texas. You may recall that the girl pictured above on the left, Iravia Cotton, punched one of the suspects in the face before he got away, and that the girl pictured on the right, Rachel Johnson, was dragged by the culprits as they drove away. The latter also wished that the thief "had a scar" following the face-punch. While there was no talk of scars, the cops believe they have identified the jerks who took hard-earned cookie money from Girl Scouts.

  10. Are the Girl Scouts Really a Bunch of Radical Pinkos? Maybe Compared to the Boy Scouts…

    Oh My Stars and Garters

    There has been a lot of hullabaloo (as the kids call it) surrounding the Girl Scouts these days, and a lot of conservative politicians and citizens are boycotting them because they're considered a "liberal" or even a "radicalized" organization. But you never hear this kind of protest over the good ol' Boy Scouts. Why is that? Are the two youth-oriented groups really that different? The Atlantic has a closer look, and you might be surprised at what they found.
