On the same day that the House of Representatives passed the so-called “Equality Act,” a piece of partisan legislation that enshrines legal protections for transgender persons at the expense of religious freedom and women’s rights, Oreo – as in, the cookie brand – tweeted in apparent support of the bill, posting simply, “Trans people exist.”

Which, aside from being an utterly ridiculous statement for a snack food producer to make, is also an utterly ridiculous statement in and of itself, considering no one is arguing whether trans persons “exist.”
The argument is instead over whether a person can actually change their biological gender based on how they “feel” (spoiler alert: no, they can’t), whether the government can force a religious person to violate their own deeply-held beliefs in the same of “inclusivity” (in theory, yes, but not without violating the U.S. Constitution and denying someone’s God-given rights), and whether a biological man should be allowed to invade women’s facilities, co-opt their spaces, and unfairly compete against them despite his natural physical advantage, thus destroying women’s sports, right to privacy, and virtually erasing femininity from the public sphere altogether.

But all of that would be too difficult for a junk food maker to tackle – thus leaving us with this stupid and generally useless blurb from a company no one cares about beyond their double-stuffed cookies.
But alas, such random virtue-signaling is what we've come to expect from just about every "woke" company attempting to score social justice points - and dollars - from the masses.
