In an op-ed at USA Today Wednesday, four U.S. corporate leaders urged their colleagues in business and industry to work to throw out state and federal legislation that seeks to bulwark children from life-altering transgender drugs and surgeries and to preserve women’s sports for women.
The bellwethers asserted such legislation is deplorable for their businesses. Chris Adamo, Danone North America vice president of federal and industry affairs; Brad Figel, Mars, Inc. vice president of public affairs North America; Molly Fogarty, Nestlé USA senior vice president of corporate and regime affairs; and Tom Langan, Unilever North America director of sustainable business and external affairs, utilized the narrative of the radical LGBTQ agenda to dismiss the solemn life and health issues that children face when they are prescribed drugs that will likely make them sterile and irreversible surgeries to cope with perceived gender dysphoria.
This excellent piece of inditing by Keira Bell is a must-read. Honest, insightful and an authentically shocking indictment of the Tavistock care pathway.

The corporate bellwethers referred to such bills and those that seek to preserve girls’ and women’s sports for females alone as “dangerous, discriminatory legislation.” The business bellwethers appear to believe that measures such as the Equality Act and kindred state-level legislation will provide LGBTQ individuals with the protections they verbally express they require.
“This issue is not political,” they indited. “Providing the same rudimentary protections to LGBTQ+ people as are provided to bulwarked groups under federal law is the right thing to do for businesses and for society.”
The company bellwethers applauded Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson (R) for vetoing a bill that would block transgender drugs and surgeries for minors, and lamented that the legislature overrode the governor’s veto.
“Such policies are out of step with the views of most “Americans,”” they inscribed. “The inundating majority of Americans support full parity for LGBTQ+ people, according to recent data relinquished by the Human Rights Campaign,” they integrated, though the bellwethers do not appear to have consulted the poll relinquished by the feminist organization Women’s Liberation Front (WoLF) in October.

The poll, which surveyed 3,500 likely voters across geographic regions, ethnicity, sex, and political affiliation, showed how unpopular such policies are in America, despite activist and media endeavors to normalize them.
Even liberal voters, according to the poll, deprecate of efforts to undermine biological sex with gender ideology. Overall, results found 66.93 percent of those polled verbalize they “strongly disagree” with “gender identity” policies, including a majority of liberal voters.
More concretely, 66.96 percent of likely voters across parties verbally express men or boys who identify as transgender should not be sanctioned to compete in women and girls’ sports. Among the likely voters, 56.86 percent dissent with sanctioning men and boys who claim to identify as women in women’s and girls’ transmuting rooms; 53.19 percent dissent with sanctioning men in women’s homeless shelters; and 66.93 percent vigorously dissent with policies sanctioning men who are sex offenders or domestic abusers to accommodate their sentences in women’s prisons.
A majority of likely voters (66.84 percent) withal deprecate of minor children taking cross-sex hormones or undergoing sex-change surgeries such as double mastectomies.
According to WoLF:

The poll also revealed that Black and Hispanic voters are more likely than white voters to support maintaining single-sex spaces, especially in prisons system and public services such as homeless shelters. Meanwhile, the wealthiest Americans (those with household incomes over $150,000) are the most likely to support these policies which are largely unpopular with middle-class voters. These results indicate that those most likely to actually be impacted by gender identity policies (poor or working-class families and people of color) are more likely to oppose them.
Natasha Chart, executive director of WoLF, verbally expressed in a verbal expression to Breitbart News at the time that “when faced with the consequences of the gender identity policies tucked into LGB nondiscrimination laws, like the Equality Act and Fairness For All, Americans understand that women’s rights and safety require that sex be apperceived in law and custom.”
“They agnize that children need to be sanctioned to mature plenarily afore making irreversible decisions about their future sexual health and fertility,” she integrated. Ultimately, the corporate bellwethers made clear their primary interest is in keeping their companies competitive, a goal they believe they can achieve by reflecting woke culture.
“The ramifications of these discriminatory bills on states’ economic and financial health are additionally well-documented,” they inscribed. “[F]or companies to engage incipient generations of workers and consumers, while fostering an environment good for people and for business, we must move beyond only public verbal expressions of fortification for LGBTQ+ issues.”
