Oreo Launch 'LGBT Edition' Cookies, Lectures Children on Transgender Pronouns
Kids snack company launches new 'inclusive' edition snacks
Oreo cookies announced yesterday a “special” LGBT edition aimed at lecturing children about how to use transgender pronouns.
The brand, which is a division of international foods giant Nabisco, posted the announcement of Facebook outlining their new campaign which aims to celebrate inclusivity with special 'pronoun packs.'
“We’re proud to celebrate inclusivity for all gender identities and expressions,” the company wrote.
“In partnership with NCTE, we’re giving away special edition Pronoun Packs and encouraging everybody to share their pronouns with Pride today and every day.”
But why is the organization helping with cookie company with “pronoun packs?"
The Federalist claim NCTE is a political organization, not a professional organization, at this point."
"Assisting with these "pronoun packs" only makes publicly apparent what has been true about NCTE for decades."
But it seems the Federalist mistook NCTE for the National Council of Teachers of English when it was a Transgender group.
Oreo actually partnered with the National Center for Transgender Equality (NCTE).
Regardless of the affiliation details, it's still strange a kids snack company has gone this far to indoctrinate children.
And the comments speak for themselves:

For one, I don't think your kids should be eating diabetes. Second, I don't think Oreos are possible of sex. And third of all, just because a company supports pride month you're gonna rant about it? You don't deserve a verified logo nor' kids if you act this way. Good day to you. https://t.co/W2lqL8Aig6— jordan btw (@JordanWasStolen) July 3, 2019
Unsurprisingly, most of the positive comments were on the top of the response feed, and to see negative comments you need to scroll down, even with many hundreds more likes and engagements than some of the positive ones.
Mara Keisling, executive director for the National Center for Transgender Equality, said:
"We are so proud to partner with Oreo on this campaign and grateful for their support for our work."
"It's a sign of how far our community has come that business leaders across the nation are proud to show their support for inclusivity and representation of all identities."
The kid's snack company also supported the LGBT community in 2012 where they posted an Oreo with six layers of cream—one for each color of the rainbow flag—along with the caption "Proudly support love!"
