The Human Rights Campaign Foundation (HRCF) has done astonishing work getting LGBTQ priorities mainstreamed into public life. Their latest drive is to indoctrinate students in the public schools with transgender ideology. If you think redefinition of human sexuality and child development isn’t happening in your schools, think again.
Where does HRCF get the funding to push their agenda so boldly and comprehensively? It comes largely from the businesses below, listed on HRCF’s corporate partners page, copied here for your shopping (or not shopping) consideration.
But why do so many businesses fund LGBTQ priorities? Because they’ve been bullied into compliance by HRCF’s “Corporate Equality Index,” (CEI) a number ginned up and assigned to each company based on how much the company does to further HRCF’s goals. Their rubric includes mandates such as:
· The company’s policies include sexual orientation & gender identity expression for all operations.
· The company must conduct HRCF-approved cultural training for all employees.
· The company must include gender identity and sexual orientation in professional development training.
· The company must utilize LGBTQ suppliers when available.
· The company must perform outreach to, marketing to, & financial support of LGBTQ interests.
There is also a negative-points section of the rubric called “Responsible Citizenship”. This amorphous and subjective category allows HRCF to deduct points from a company’s CEI based on “a large-scale official or public anti-LGBTQ blemish on their recent records”.
What exactly does that mean? It means HRCF will deduct points from a company’s CEI score if the company does anything the HRCF doesn’t like.
CEI scores are announced annually, and companies are lauded or excoriated by the LGBTQ community and its allies based on their scores. The HRCF has also created the Buyer’s Guide, a handy app for your phone that lets you know exactly how LGBTQ-friendly an organization is, according to the HRCF. So if you’re shopping for shoes, and you see some kicks you like, you can easily find out whether the brand is agreeable to HRCF or not, and purchase—or not purchase—accordingly.
Whether or not you agree with HRCF’s ideology, this kind of corporate blackmail is akin to the Ku Klux Klan’s activities in the 1920’s, when if you didn’t hold a KKK card you likely couldn’t get a job.
The bullied have become the bullies.
