Personally, I suggest serious counseling for the scouting officials and those parents denying and complying about this kid attending scouts. This child didn't chose his gender, genetics did or for some, god did ! This is another example of ignorance and discrimination, but we claim to be democratic with a human rights overview.
If I was the parent, I'd be discreetly (without my child's knowledge) suing, to force change and equality... Many scout groups around the world don't discriminate the sex of a child


The Boy Scouts should consider a policy statement similar to the Girl Scouts:

Girl Scouts is proud to be the premiere leadership organization for girls in the country. Placement of transgender youth is handled on a case-by-case basis, with the welfare and best interests of the child and the members of the troop/group in question a top priority. That said, if the child is recognized by the family and school/community as a girl and lives culturally as a girl, then Girl Scouts is an organization that can serve her in a setting that is both emotionally and physically safe.

In about five years, this boy will be surrounded by a loving family, supportive community members and medical professionals who will help guide him through the pubescent phases of his transition. His community will embrace him and love him and support him for the wonderful child that he is. He will realize that, despite small pockets of continued ignorance, he is living in a time of unprecedented acceptance, medical and therapeutic advances.

Joe Maldanado, a 8-year old Secaucus boy was kicked out of the Boy Scouts for being transgender.

We first met Joe in the summer of 2015, when his mom Kristie, a fierce advocate for her son, reached out to Garden State Equality for help in supporting Joe’s transition at school. We worked with his elementary school to ensure that Joe was able to attend school as a boy and provided policy consultation to administrators and professional development training for teachers and staff on working with transgender youth. Since that time we have continued to be an ally and resource to Joe’s family.

We were devastated when Kristie shared with us that the Boy Scouts asked her to remove Joe from the Cub Scouts because other parents complained that a transgender child was participating. Joe is a confident young person and he has shown tremendous courage.

Garden State Equality believes that the Boy Scouts of America’s policy on accepting gay youth should extend to transgender youth. We also believe that the New Jersey Law Against Discrimination, which protects New Jerseyans from discrimination on the basis of gender identity and gender expression should extend to this case.
