The Girl Scouts of America deleted a social media post on its official Twitter and Facebook pages Wednesday evening congratulating Amy Coney Barrett on her appointment to the Supreme Court.

"I already felt uneasy as a trans person in this organization, but now I really understand that with this message that Girl Scouts really does not support me or my trans/LGBTQ siblings," she added.

In a statement released by the Girl Scouts, the organization said the post was "quickly viewed as a political and partisan statement," which was not its original intent.

"Girl Scouts of the USA is a nonpolitical, nonpartisan organization," the statement added. "We are neither red nor blue, but Girl Scout GREEN.

One of the more than 4,000 replies to the post said she would take her business elsewhere, saying, “I’m going to spend my $100 Girl Scout Cookie budget on ingredients to make my own next year.”.

Some commenters also offered praise for the post, with one woman on Facebook writing, “Girl Scouts, thank you for celebrating ALL women and showing us there is a place at the table for those with ALL different sorts of values.

Another woman wrote, “I’m glad to see the organization support all women both liberal and conservative!”.

One conservative woman pointed out that she didn’t "trash the Girl Scouts when I didn’t agree with things that were against my beliefs."!

Those of you bashing the organization, please remember there are conservatives that support Girl Scouts too.

The post congratulating Barrett is not the first time the Girl Scouts has shown support for female figures in the political arena. 

The Girl Scouts previously shared a Huffington Post article dating back to December 2013 in which former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton discussed the importance of female political leadership as she was mulling a run in the 2016 election.
