My troop came across a cache of "American Girl" Molly dolls. I can't tell you the details, but suffice it to say, we have a few hundred of these pricey dolls that just came our way. To earn our charity badge, we have set up a program to donate the dolls to our unfortunate sisters whose parents have been having a boycott of all "American Girl" dolls for the last two years, because the company made a donation to Girls Inc., which does a lot of good things for girls, including helping with self esteem and education, and because it believes in girls' rights, it also supports our rights to our bodies, and the (supposedly) Christian wrong thinks they should not have that control.
Mind you I would never buy one of the dolls, because they cost like $90 and I hate dolls anyway, I would always choose a stuffed animal (or better yet, a real one - but I would never buy it, I would always only rescue one), but there are girls who like them, and why should their rights to their dolls be denied or abridged because of their parents idiocy and prejudice, and determination to take away their own daughters rights?
SO, if you are one of these girls, please write to us through the blog, and we will arrange to get you one of these naughty dolls (in a plain brown wrapper - send to a safe location) and you and the other girls in your church can have secret meetings to play with your dolls and whatever else deprived people might do in secret (hint, hint)...

Mattell has recalled a lot of toys, and of course they are blaming the Chinese for using the yummy lead paint and tiny magnets. I thought these toys were dangerous enough all on their own. Look at them. What is wrong with these pictures? Batman is an S/M steroid freak. And Barbie's an anorexic, plastic surgery addict. At least Barbie got a service dog to help her walk because her feet are permanently high-heeled, and she cant' stand up on her own. (By the way, the dog eats and poops - the food and the poop are the same pellet, which is pretty accurate, because our dog eats cat poop - right out of the litter box - we call it 'almond rocca.')

The armband is designed to shame the person wearing it
In the interest of full disclosure I have to say that I'm a big fan of Hello Kitty: I have a Chococat wallet and some tiny hello kitty temporary tattoos. I find nothing shameful about it. I would proudly wear a Hello Kitty armband, although I think the hearts look pretty stupid. But why don't they just make them wear an armband that says "girl" on it, or pink underpants on their heads? Why is everything girl so shameful to men? I hope Hello Kitty retaliates and starts wearing a blue armband with a little Thai cop on it.

Elizabeth Township girl charged in dad's killing
Police are silent, but neighbors say teen was victim of sexual, physical abuse for several years
Tuesday, July 31, 2007By Torsten Ove and Jim McKinnon, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
A 13-year-old girl fatally shot her father in the face with a shotgun early yesterday morning as he slept in their Elizabeth Township home, according to police.
Rachel Booth was held without bond last night in the Allegheny County Jail, charged as an adult with homicide in the death of Matthew J. Booth, 34. She faces a preliminary hearing Friday.
In an affidavit supporting the arrest, Allegheny County police did not reveal a motive.
Detectives said only that the girl acknowledged that she killed Mr. Booth with his 12-gauge shotgun at 2:21 a.m. on the first floor of 5802 Pitt St., where Mr. Booth lived with the girl and her 14-year-old brother, Matthew Booth Jr.
But a close neighbor said the girl told her that Mr. Booth had sexually and physically abused her since she was 7. [there's more, but you should just look it up]Well let me be the first to say that this type of self-defense is a trend I'd like to see pick up. Of course they want to charge her as an adult for homocide because we can't have the children defending themselves like that (never mind that it was HIS gun). But if this scares at least one abuser, then that's awesome, and of course that guy will not be hurting anyone anymore. I'm sure a lot of people will be shocked, but I wonder why it doesn't happen more often. Hey, at least she killed her abuser and nota bunch of schoolmates. For that she gets the Aileen Wuornos award for environmental clean up.
If there's anything I can do. I stand ready with the Girl Scouts to help a sister in need.
