(PatriotWise.com)- After a whistleblower revealed that State Farm was supporting a program to supply “transgender” indoctrination books for public schools, the insurance company backed out of the program.
Last Monday, the watchdog group Consumers Research released emails leaked by concerned State Farm agents over the company’s partnership with the GenderCool Project.
The GenderCool Project is run by an advocacy group targeting so-called “transgender youth.” The purpose of the project is to supply school libraries, classrooms, and community centers with books on gender ideology to facilitate conversations with children about being non-binary or transgender.
State Farm wanted to recruit hundreds of agents nationwide to help supply those books “to help bring clarity and understanding to the national conversation” about gender ideology, according to the leaked email.
The three books State Farm wanted agents to help supply to schools were “A Kids Book About Being Transgender,” “A Kids Book About Being Inclusive,” and “A Kids Book About Being Non-Binary.”
This three-book bundle was to be available to children as young as five.
State Farm explained to its agents that the goal is to increase the number of “LGBTQ+ books” and “support our communities” so they can have “challenging, important and empowering conversations with children age 5+.”
And when the story broke on Monday, the blowback was instantaneous.
At first, State Farm defended the move, claiming they wanted to promote “diversity and inclusion.” The company argued that the program was strictly voluntary and its agents didn’t have to participate.
When it became clear that nobody was buying this lame excuse, State Farm quickly shifted gears.
Later on Monday, State Farm sent an email to all of its agents announcing that its support of the so-called “philanthropic program” had ended.
In the email, sent by State Farm’s Chief Diversity Officer Victor Terry, the company claimed that discussions about gender identity “should happen at home with parents.” Terry said State Farm doesn’t support school curricula on this subject and would instead support organizations that provide gender identity resources to parents rather than schools.
