Yesterday we asked 'What the Hell is the matter with State Farm?'
In January, State Farm Insurance actively advocated a company-wide program to get “Transgender, Inclusive and Non-Binary” books into school libraries to spark “challenging, important and empowering conversations with children ages 5 and up....
You can see why we asked the question.
Didn't take long for State Farm to start the Word Game Runaround:
...The company’s LGBTQ advocacy shifted dramatically on Monday, however: “Conversations about gender and identity should happen at home with parents, State Farm said in a statement after they were exposed...Yah, well, that's less a "reverse" than it seems.
...We don’t support required curriculum in schools on this topic. We support organizations providing resources for parents to have these conversations, the statement read in part.”
“We no longer support the program allowing for distribution of books in schools. We will continue to explore how we can support organizations that provide tools and resources that align with our commitment to diversity and inclusion, the statement continued.”...
They will "continue to explore" how they can "support organizations" which support grooming and irreversible surgical mutilation of children. Because, after all, that's the reason for having insurance companies, right?
OK, then. That makes it all better, no?
