A 7-year-old Denver boy who dresses and behaves like a girl is making news by attempting to join the Girl Scouts.  And after a brief scuffle, he may be on his way to doing so.

Bobby Montoya has been identifying as a girl since around age 2, his mother told Colorado station 9 News.  "We just let him dress how he wants, as long as he's happy," she said.  But Montoya has faced bullying in school, and when he recently tried to join a local Girl Scout troop, he was turned away by a troop leader who said he wasn't allowed to join because he has "boy parts."
