Candy makers Nestle and Mars have now gone all-in to support forcing America’s girls to play against men pretending to be women in school sports.
In an op-ed published by USA Today, branch chiefs for Mars and Nestle proudly announced that they support forcing states to adopt pro transgender athlete laws.
“We must move beyond only public statements of support for LGBTQ+ issues,” Mars’ Brad Figel and Nestle’s Molly Fogarty say on their op-ed. “These bills are bad for families, for communities, for businesses and for the U.S. economy,” they argue without citing a single scrap of evidence. They gush over Gov. Asa Hutchinson’s (R-Ark. ) cowardly veto of Arkansas’ SAFE Act and urge other states to follow his example. It’s “draconian,” they insist, to outlaw gender mutilation for kids or stop biological boys from competing against girls. If states don’t agree, then they think companies need to get in the political trenches and fight them. Then, when they’re done with that, they can move on to wiping out freedom altogether by advocating “for the swift passage of Equality Act.”
“We condemn dangerous, discriminatory legislation that serves as an attack on LGBTQ+ individuals, particularly transgender and nonbinary people,” these woke fools wrote.
Did SCOTUS make the right decision on medical mandates for large businesses?
Transgenderism has nothing to do with gay rights, of course. And gays should be wary of allowing transgenders to use their cause to blanket their activism.
These executives went on to insist that their meddling in the legislative process in the states that don’t support transism is just the companies “protecting their employees.
“Companies have a responsibility to actively work with federal and state legislators to advocate against bills that harm our employees and our customers, and to advance fairness and equality for all Americans,” no, you really don’t, companies.
A company has one duty: make money. No one elected any CEO or a division head of a corporation to make laws. It is hubris to assume otherwise.
