This reality star is trying to use her influence to change some impending laws.

It's just a shame what she wants is rooted in ignorance and lack of human compassion — but we bet it's not gonna work!

19 Kids And Counting star Michelle Duggar recently recorded a message for the residents of Fayetteville, Arkansas, and it basically asked them to support her in her attempts to strike down a vote on stopping discrimination against transgender residents and giving them more rights in their community - including public restrooms.

Filed under: InspirationHealthFast FoodAmazingCute Kidz

Girl fights for five years to McDonald's to be more gender neutral with their Happy Meal toys!Antonia Ayres-Brown wasn't just another normal 11-year-old girl. She saw a need for change and worked towards it, not stopping until she had achieved her goal.

It all started when her family went to the McDonald's drive-thru and Antonia got to thinking… what if Happy Meal toys were gender neutral?

She even wrote McDonald's CEO, though all she got back was a note from the customer satisfaction office saying their workers were never told to ask gendered questions when giving out Happy Meal toys.

Antonia wasn't satisfied and so she

Hopefully this happens!

Because seriously it's about time!

The word on the street is that the Boy Scouts of America should be going through with allowing gay members any day now.

But they won't be letting in gay leaders, which is NOT cool!

Fortunately, it sounds like some members of the organization are starting to see the light. In fact, one of the major councils in Southern California are proposing allowing gay scouts AND leaders!

Here's what the president of the LA council said:

Boy Scouts Ending Ban On Gays!! But ONLY For Youth Members!!!

boy scouts of america lifting gay ban

It looks like all the disenfranchised scouts out there will finally get some resolution- specifically, one that finally makes the Boy Scouts of America open to gay members!

After three months of rigorous research and debate, the Scouts announced today that they are pushing forward a resolution banning discrimination for sexuality!

According to spokesman Deron Smith, the new rule states:

"No youth may be denied membership in the Boy Scouts of America on the basis of sexual orientation or preference alone."

Yay! Progress!

But what took them so long?? Author and Boy Scouts historian Patrick Boyle said:

"This is a historic change for the Boy Scouts.

You have a more than hundred-year-old organization changing what it considered a fundamental belief just a decade ago. That says a lot about the Scouts and a lot about how far the gay rights movement has come in the United States."

The scouts aren't out of the woods yet, so to speak. They still have to vote to ratify the resolution in May.

Then they'll finally get their merit badge in tolerance!

UPDATE:

It seems the Boy Scouts have had to clarify their position since this morning's announcement.

We were so happy with their big step into the new millennium, we failed to notice that the new policy is only for YOUTH members- meaning the BSA still won't be allowing gay scout leaders or other openly homosexual adults, including parents, into their organization.

Rich Ferraro, Vice President of Communications at GLAAD, says:

"By refusing to consider an end to its ban on gay and lesbian parents, the Boy Scouts have missed an opportunity to exercise leadership and usher the organization back to relevancy."

Though this is a very big change in the Scouts' policy, we have to agree. It seems the Boy Scouts of America just aren't prepared to step completely into the future.

And the hits keep on coming for the Boy Scouts of America.

As the organization continues its sad and hurtful ban of gay boy scouts, UPS has become the latest sponsor to pull their funding.

The United Parcel Service will be adopting a non-discrimination policy which will disqualify the BSA from future funding.
