Nine-year-old Stormi set out last month to sell cookies just like every other Girl Scout — with a sales pitch and a goal.

“I like to sell cookies because it’s very nice to sell cookies,” she told BuzzFeed News. Cookies, she said, “make people smile.”

But when Stormi, who is transgender, started knocking on neighbours’ doors near her home in Herrin, Illinois, one man turned her away, saying:

“Nobody wants to buy cookies from a boy in a dress.”

“It made me sad,” Stormi told BuzzFeed News. “Because I’m a girl.”

So, she said, she found a way to shut down her bully and sell more than 3,000 boxes of cookies.

A 9 year old transgender? That's disgusting.

While the prospects of an operatic cosmic catastrophe may always be looming behind us due to our temperaments, we do tend to be around lots and lots of the opposite sex from cradle to grave.

Poor kid is a currently a foster child, I wonder why, ... but wonder more about the foster parents/GS organization for promoting this for media attention, I thought there were rules about privacy for foster children. The agenda being pushed by the adults is what is disgusting.

Is this guy really a bully?  He expressed his opinion, albeit harshly, but that is hardly indicative of bullying.  NOw, if he threatened her and stole the girl scout cookies, then the label might stick.  All too often, an opposite opinion is deemed "bullying."

9 as in 9, or 9 as in 52?
I'm not going to be posting as much on OC.Net as before. I might stop in once in a while though. But I've come to realize that real life is more important.

Buzz feed News. That's the tragedy here.
According to clock time and calendar time the approval of threads may seem to be long delayed, but in sacred time it is always near at hand, always imminent.

You're late we discussed that awhile ago.
