This month, corporations are plastering their social media avatars with rainbows, sponsoring Pride parades, and declaring their unwavering commitment to the LGBTQ community. Many of these companies, however, are spending millions supporting the campaigns of anti-gay politicians at the federal and state level.
Playing both sides of the field reflects you do condone what the politicians support because the corporations might as well support murder and gas chambers. Whether it's voting rights, insurrection, anti LGBTQ, and the list is longer, these mega 1% corporations got a huge tax break from these hateful GOP Hawgs. They roll in the mud together for one thing: Greed.
Stock answer or no answer from all these corporations. This shouldn't cut it in today's day and age. Excellent work per usual and keep fighting the good fight!
Judd - keep kicking the asses of these appalling corporations! Keep up the good work
These corporations are cordially invited to shove their recognition of "pride" up their you-know-what.
Thank you, Judd, for bringing your incisive focus to this issue. Hypocrisy deserves this scrutiny. "TRUTH over profit" always.
I’m so sick of this. Gutless hypocrites!
I'm no anti-trans person, and while I don't know the details of any proposed anti-trans legislation, I assume most of it not motivated by values I'd agree with. However, the hormonal issue is not so easy to dismiss. Judd wrote:
"The legislation would ban anyone under the age of 21 from receiving gender-affirming treatment, including reversible hormone therapy. "
But the term "reversible hormone therapy" is really dishonest. The sex hormones, taken for any meaningful length of time during puberty and the teens, permanently changes the course of the development of the body. Not just the sex organs, but size, shape, and strength of bones even after discontinuation of the therapy. And many other things.
I'm surprised that my fellow open-minded people have so readily bought into the idea that altering or blocking puberty is no big deal, and is reversible. It is not. It is a bad idea to adopt language that tries to cover up this fact.
