Trans people do exist.
Yet, who on earth was craving Oreo’s opinion on the matter? Why did Oreo’s PR department think the public was waiting on tenterhooks for its guidance on how to embrace the trans community, a group the cookie maker has probably never broadly consulted? On what authority does Oreo speak on their behalf?
If Oreo wanted to be properly woke, why didn’t the PR department issue a public statement about the derogatory use of the phrase, “Oreo cookie”, to slander a black person for being white on the inside.
How ironic that the company’s parent, Mondelez International, is currently accused in a lawsuit – among other food making giants – of engaging in aiding and abetting child slave labour on cocoa plantations in Mali and Cote D’Ivoire.
We keep asking time and time again, what do Oreo, Gillette, Nike, Coca-Cola, Goodyear etc seek to gain by constantly virtue signaling about things they’ve absolutely no idea about? Why are corporate boards approving such radical PR nonsense which has little to do with their core businesses?
We imagine that when injustice occurs in the trans community, Oreo cookies are the last thing on most people’s minds, even after this virtue signaling post on Twitter.
It makes as much sense as the Yarra Council spending ratepayers’ money on woke gestures unrelated to garbage collection and maintaining public toilets. Even the mayor claims she lives on stolen land yet happily takes taxes from the other squatters (aka residents) who must, by definition, also be illegally occupying land in the council zone.
