  • Girl Guides WA CEO Karyn Lisignoli has been sacked after a controversial tweet
  • She asked if the rules could be changed to allow only biological women
  • Girl Guides accepts those who “live like a girl or a woman” in their organization
  • Lisignoli expressed concern about biological boys sharing tents with girls

The former CEO of Girl Guides WA has spoken out after being sacked over a controversial tweet about allowing transgender membership.

Karyn Lisignoli asked if it was possible to change the rules to only allow biological women to become guides.

The Girl Guides WA constitution allows “anyone under the age of 18 who lives their life as a woman” to join the organization.

Ms Lisignoli had tweeted women’s rights lawyer Katherine Deves, who is head of Save Women’s Sport Australia, asking if it was legal to change the decision.

“I have noticed that our constitution bends to this ideology,” Ms Lisignoli wrote, in response to an article about the UK Supreme Court’s ruling against gender neutral passports.

‘Can I DM you (direct message) to find out the legal status on this? If we turn him back into a biological female, are we breaking the law? »

The tweet quickly caught the eye and prompted Girl Guides WA President Yvonne Power to end her role.

In a letter, Ms Lisignoli was told she had ’caused a serious and imminent risk to the reputation of the organization’.

But the former CEO said she had fallen victim to ‘cancel culture’ and was worried about older biological boys sharing tents with younger girls.

“Inclusion has been taken too far,” she said The Australian.

“If we include trans girls who are biological men, they can go to co-ed school camps.

“There is a reason why there are certain situations in which we say men cannot be present. Do parents know when they send their nervous and shy 12-year-old daughter to the Girl Guides that she may be camping in a tent with a biological 15-year-old boy? They might identify as a girl, but it’s a biological boy.

According to the rules of the guides, girls who become boys are not allowed to participate.

Girl Guides Australia’s chief commissioner, Rosemary Derwin, told the publication that girls and women who identify as women are welcome to join the organization.

Ms Derwin said all girls and women would be treated “equally and with mutual respect, regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity”.
