There's lesbian subtext on this Girl Scout cookie box

Lesbian Girl Scout cookie box of Tagalongs: from the collection of Rusty Blazenhoff

It's Girl Scout cookie season again which made me think of this box I've been hanging onto since the year 2000 or so. Just an innocent box of Tagalongs, right? Well, not so fast. Look a little closer and I think you'll agree something else is going on: lesbian subtext!

Years ago, LGBT activist and sex advice columnist Dan Savage wrote about the questionable box in Savage Love:

Hey, Everybody: If you haven't bought a box of Girl Scout cookies this year, I suggest you pick up a few boxes of Tagalongs Peanut Butter Patties pronto -- these boxes are sure to be collectors' items one day. Pictured on the front of the box are two Girl Scouts up to their chins in water, nose to nose, looking deep into each other's eyes. "Go for it!" is written above their heads. I [heart] subtle and subversive homoeroticism, and despite the braces one of the girls has in her mouth -- sure to get in the way of any late-night "going for it" back at the cabin -- this photo qualifies as teenage lesbian erotica in my book.

If unsubtle homoeroticism is more to your liking, you need only flip over the box, where the text reads: "I just love water sports! Our teachers are complete pros! Jamilia and I actually synchronized our strokes ..." [My italics.] Okay, let's stop and examine the first three lines: The Girl Scouts pictured on the box are only shown swimming -- no one is shown on water-skis, playing water polo or snorkeling.
