A transgender girl scout has had what is probably the best comeback to a man who told her “nobody wants to buy cookies from a boy in a dress.”
Stormi, the young girl in question, was naturally pretty upset by this horrid comment. But, with the help of her foster mum Kim, she set up an online storefront and has sold over 3,000 cookies according to Buzzfeed.
The frontpage of her online store reads: “My troop plans to use the money to help us go on trips. I have my own plans as well. My family will donate boxes to local foster kids like me! Selling cookies is a lot of work. I have learned that even though people can be mean I shouldn’t give up! Selling cookies has helped me with my math as well!”
Stormi’s page has seen supporters from as far away as Canada and Australia, with many people buying her variety of cookie boxes for $4 plus shipping. If Buzzfeed is correct on it’s estimation of over 3,000 boxes sold… Stormi has generated quite a lot.
Kim gushed about Stormi’s success to Buzzfeed, saying: “It’s just been amazing. I have not seen Stormi like this in a really long time. It makes me cry because this is something she’ll never forget.”
Stormi has also been receiving support from people in letters, one of which was from Elizabeth S. Leet, a Ph.D. candidate at the University of Virginia.
Elizabeth says in her letter: “Stormi is so brave and wonderful for standing up for herself and choosing to live as the person she’s always been!”
Naturally, this outpouring of support, both in the form of cookie sales and the letters she has received, Stormi has undoubtedly shown the bullying man just how wrong he is. Why he said such a thing to a young girl in the first place is a mystery for the reader.
Here’s hoping that this gives Stormi the confidence to never let anyone bring her down.
