(LOS ANGELES TIMES) — A YouTube clip of a young girl asking people to boycott the sale of Girl Scout cookies surfaced on the Internet Wednesday after the organization decided to allow a 7-year-old transgender child into a troop in Colorado. The video is now unavailable on YouTube (it was made private by its creators), but in the short while it was up, it sparked a heated debate among conservative right-wing advocates and lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender rights activists on the Web.

Buck Angel, who claims to be a transgender former Girl Scout, put up his own video on YouTube as a response. In the video, he pleads with people to support the Girl Scout program.
