State Farm Insurance Caught Pushing Transgender and Non-Binary Books to School Libraries to Start Conversations with Children as Young as Five Year Olds About Their Genders

And Like a Pedo Neighbor, State Farm Is There...


In January, State Farm Insurance actively advocated a company-wide program to get "Transgender, Inclusive and Non-Binary" books into school libraries to spark "challenging, important and empowering conversations with children ages 5 and up. The company's LGBTQ advocacy shifted dramatically on Monday, however: "Conversations about gender and identity should happen at home with parents, State Farm said in a statement after they were exposed by the independent non-profit organization Consumers' Research.

On January 18, 2022, State Farm's Corporate Responsibility Analyst Jose Soto sent out an internal email calling on its Florida agents to participate in a "unique project" to "diversify" classrooms, community centers and libraries.

In the email, Soto said State Farm had partnered with the GenderCool Project to get books about being transgender and non-binary in front of schoolkids as young as 5-years-old.

"State Farm is partnering with The GenderCool Project to help diversify classroom, community center and library bookshelves with a collection of books to help bring clarity and understanding to the national conversation about Being Transgender, Inclusive and Non-Binary," the email reads. "The project's goal is to increase representation of LGBTQ+ books and support our communities in having challenging, important and empowering conversations with children Age 5+."

Soto said approximately 550 State Farm agents and employees nationwide would have the opportunity to donate to the GenderCool Project's three-book bundle, titled, "A Kids Book About Being Transgender," "A Kids Book About Being Inclusive," and "A Kids Book About Being Non-Binary," and encouraged six Florida agents to receive and donate the books to their communities.

In a series of Tweets, Monday, Will Hild, the executive director for Consumers' Research, blasted State Farm over its aggressive LGBTQ advocacy.

"This gross and blatant attempt to indoctrinate our children by State Farm is shameless, and consumers should be aware a company founded on family values is now encouraging five-year-old children to question their gender" said Hild.

28 There are so many problems with learning in this country. Kids may not have the proper support system to learn good study habits, they may not have people who can help them when school work gets tough, and they may not live in an environment where they can even get their school work done safely. In other areas kids may not have the programs to help them catch up to others of their age, possibly due to learning disabilities or undiagnosed issues. And even those who are doing there best may not have teachers or adults who lead them in the right direction, say by pointing them towards what to study or what schools to attend to achieve their goals.

And here comes a company like State Farm who thinks ther best way to solve these problems is to tell those children to stick thier genitals in the garbage disposal.

Mr. Black works for State Farm. He got the internal memo as well, and what the word is is that it was more an alliance with the agency side of State Farm, who are independent employees with this tranny org. Some agents(?) put this together and it didn't come from Corporate. But of course, the State Farm name gets attached. There were a lot of concerned complaints going into Corporate from other agents, who were likely getting an earful from their policyholders. Sounds a little fishy, but I know when I showed the original story to Mr. Black, he didn't recognize any name quoted in that story. And he's very familiar with department heads and big names within the company. He was skeptical from the beginning when I first showed it to him.

47 Maybe some of these children do have problems, but nothing the left wants to teach addresses that. They want to exacerbate the problem to reach a political and social end they desire, not what's best for someone.

If someone had a mental disorder and thought they were Superman, it would be criminal to tell them to jump off a building to should us they can fly. Most of these people who want to transition do have severe mental issues, and the left wants to push them into a path to suicide through drugs and mutilation, instead of maybe actually helping them.

The "GenderCool Project," eh? And who are they? Well:
GenderCool was inspired by the powerful, positive experience of one family. Jen and John are the parents of four, including their daughter, Chazzie, (She/Her), who proudly identifies as transgender.
In 2017, their search for positive stories about transgender and non-binary kiddos like Chazzie turned up (nearly) empty. They could count on one hand the positive stories they found that focused on Who these young people are as talented, amazing leaders.
In stark contrast, it took all of five seconds to find a tidal wave of misleading, sensational, negative content about these amazing young people.


So, if it is to believed, it is one couple with a chip on their shoulders about their little transgirl not being enabled loudly enough and, horror of horrors, much information about how this might be a very bad idea.

The groomer thing is super, super bad, so it deserves special attention.

But the following applies to all companies who go Left on *any* issue, no matter how small. One thing the Right needs to understand is how to apply itself in these fights.

Spend small amounts of effort on every front. Push at companies/institutions all over the place, and when one apologizes... then you make the big effort. When they give you the upper hand like that, that's when you start when you start shoving, punching, and kicking until they're in the fetal position, begging for mercy. Let up, and then spend small amounts of energy periodically bullying them, so they never forget their place.

Every time you succeed in forcing one to its knees, the rest become more timid, until all you have to do is raise an eyebrow at some new company, and they'll wilt.

Something had to be done. Jen joined forces with friend and mentor Gearah Goldstein, an expert on diversity and inclusion, wife, parent, and proud transgender person. Together, with five extraordinary young people and their families, GenderCool was born.

Today, GenderCool has become a worldwide movement.


Keep this in mind -- every parent of a trans (drag kid, etc.) doesn't just want their kid to be trans, they want yours to be, too.

Which agents, I wonder. Was it most of them? Probably not. Most agents were probably "really upset" when they realized how many customers they were going to lose. State Farm might not care about losing some regressives, but the local agent surely does. I'll bet there are some State Farm agents in conservative areas that are now downing Maalox straight with no chaser.

And the mass E-Mail is interesting on its own. Who is "@StateFarm" in this case? The executives? Probably the executives. If so, then did the executives even know about this, or was it all done by a loose cannon HR department, and now the executives have to pick up the pieces? I don't much care and I hope this hurts badly and makes other firms put rules in place to contain HR (if it was them instead of the execs themselves), but I am curious.

89 59 Yup. Chevron is used to ignore current problems by declaring 'stare decisis' thus avoiding settling/correcting issues that were obviously incorrect in the 1st place.
Until the Corp boardrooms start getting push back they will not change.
Corps need to be inundated with 'earn money' not 'woke approval' messages from stockholders.
Posted by: AZ deplorable moron at May 24, 2022 12:17 PM (56+8G)

========

Stare decisis is a common law thing unrelated to Chevron. Chevron gave the administrative state authority to write pretty much whatever regulations it wanted without input from Congress, the only body authorized to write laws in our Constitution. This created the tyranny of the administrative state that can make whatever rules it wants and, since it exists in the executive branch of government, it also gives it the authority to take action against those not following it.

So, it's completely removed from the governance by representation that's key to our government's structure, but it's also highly corrupt at its core, allowing the two competing functions of government to exist in the same body.

109 I like how State Farm claims it was merely trying to promote "inclusivity" and "diversity" by providing leftist books on gender issues to little kids.

If they really want to be "inclusive" (which they don't), then why are they only providing kids with books that push one particular point of view on controversial gender issues, that of the left?

Why haven't they provided some more "diverse" kiddie books, like say Johnny the Walrus, which teaches kids about the transgender issue from a non-leftist point of view?

We all know the answer: SF isn't interested in "inclusivity," they're interested in indoctrination, more specifically, leftist indoctrination.

The books that SF was providing are written by "transgender" and "non binary" authors, and they present the left, and only the left, point of view of these issues. The leftist point of view is also depicted as the only possible correct point of view, and the kid is told that adopting that point of view is the only way that a kid can be happy and brave and live as their "authentic" self.

That's not "inclusivity," that's leftist indoctrination.

This absolutely true for car insurance. I'm not sure about homeowner. After five incident-free years (sometimes three, depending on the insurance company), the company assumes you don't shop around and will start raising your premiums much faster. The sweet spot for car insurance is to switch every 3-5 years.

I'll see with my new company whether they do that. I changed when I moved and did some bundling so I will shop it in 2024 and see what comes up.

=========

That's not a problem with Chevron specifically, that's a problem with how SCOTUS practices in general. The unwillingness to review past decisions is a problem with how SCOTUS remains meek in the face of previous overreaches by previous Courts. The problems with Chevron are about the administrative state, not about SCOTUS's unwillingness to revisit it. The path to dismantling it is through SCOTUS attacking stare decisis (which seems more likely in general with the potential overturn of Roe around the corner), though.

Exactly. And he makes very good money. He's just counting down the time now. TBH, I will say again that State Farm was a truly excellent company to work for. I worked for them back in the 80s and 90s. Great family atmosphere. Great benefits. Great camaraderie. They really cared about their employees. Over the decades, he and I have both talked at length about how, slowly, it started to morph into something neither of us recognized. Personally, I think it accelerated for the worse when Ed Rust Jr. retired. It's just such a shame because I really admired them as a company for a long time.

220 This absolutely true for car insurance. I'm not sure about homeowner. After five incident-free years (sometimes three, depending on the insurance company), the company assumes you don't shop around and will start raising your premiums much faster. The sweet spot for car insurance is to switch every 3-5 years.

I'll see with my new company whether they do that. I changed when I moved and did some bundling so I will shop it in 2024 and see what comes up.

State Farm might not care about losing some regressives, but the local agent surely does. I'll bet there are some State Farm agents in conservative areas that are now downing Maalox straight with no chaser.

This. I'll bet you dollars to donuts that this came from corporate. I used to represent State Farm and its policyholders. It was fanatically obsessed with diversity to the point that it insisted that a certain percentage of your employees had to be the right color. The agents are the money-makers and they generally hate this shit. HR doesn't really care if a customer drops coverage, but the agent sure has hell does.

Cool.

Stare decisis has a proper place in judicial structures. It's what creates the case law that provides guidelines around newer questions that come up not covered in founding documents, if there are any (unlike the English constitution which is pretty much just centuries of case law).

Stare decisis is just a reality of how judiciaries operate, but the problem is when bad decisions get enshrined simply because they were made and are on the books. That's an institutional problem, not really a process problem.

I was under the impression it was the agents that got this yanked. They are State Farm's bread and butter. Without them, the company wouldn't exist. They are the pampered set, or they used to be. It was the agent, not the claims employees or Regional Office employees, that could qualify for an extravagant trip once a year to swank locations. I'm sure the pressure likely came from them and it was them who caused the reversal. Because it's them who lose their book of business when people get p*ssed and go elsewhere.

How about instead of telling kids that they were born in the "wrong" bodies if they are not as feminine, or as masculine, as some of their friends, we tell them something like this:

You were not born in the wrong body. Nobody is born in the wrong body. Everybody is different, and that's okay. Some boys like to play with dolls and wear pink and do things that many girls tend to like to do also. That's okay, and it doesn't mean that the boy is a girl, or that he was born in the wrong body. Some girls like to play with trucks and wear their hair short and do things that many boys tend to like to do. That's okay, and it doesn't mean that the girl is a boy, or that she was born in the wrong body. Everybody is different, and there is room enough on this planet for all different kinds of people. You are perfect the way nature made you, and there is nothing you need to change about yourself or your body to live as your unique, wonderful self.

324 Soto continued he is “seeking six agents in Florida that would be interested in participating in this unique project, by receiving these books in March, then donating them to their community by the end of April.”

“Along with donating the books, we would encourage the agent to highlight our commitment to diversity on their social media pages,” the memo continued. “This is a fantastic way to give back and an easy project that will help support the LGBTQ+ community and to make the world around us better.”

“This opportunity is available to the first 6 agents that respond,” Soto noted.



Gee, an opportunity for 550 agents to participate, but the first 6 in Florida to respond have the extra-special chance to dive right into the middle of the raging culture war in their state, where there are mobs of angry, activist schoolteachers on one side and angry, protective parents on the other.

What the actual fuck is an insurance company doing peddling this shit?

And, since they are peddling it, and probably planning on writing life insurance policies on trans people, have they factored into their actuarial tables and projected profit and loss calculations both the fact that half of all trans people kill themselves before they are 40, and the further fact that once they start charging astronomical premiums for suicide-prone trans people, the Genitalia-Mutilation-American-Community will howl to the heavens about how "unfair" it is to base premiums on risk??

400 >>I'm going to wait a couple of days to see what pans out. Something about this tells me that State Farm had nothing to do with this. This came from outside the company.



Did you miss the part where the State Farm employee sent out a company-wide email inviting all to participate?
You know, the email that is quoted extensively above, including the guy's name: Jose Soto. You can find his profile on Linkedin.

On January 18, 2022, State Farm's Corporate Responsibility Analyst Jose Soto sent out an internal email calling on its Florida agents to participate in a "unique project" to "diversify" classrooms, community centers and libraries.

GenderCool wrote the books, and then Jose decided to have the company partner with them -- what about this indicates State Farm didn't knowingly do this?

In defense of ace, I think he liked the big tent idea where not everyone thought exactly the same thing and honest disagreement and argument was encouraged. The problem is, some of the people had no interest in encouraging honest disagreement themselves.

But I will point out, even if ace comes down on someone, he very rarely actually bans them- unless they get retarded.

Except for the time where - was it grammie - who rather innocently commented about the subject of a thread after ace had gone apeshit for a day about people not questioning the content. It was funny not funny. But funny.

480 I was not on much for a period of time, in short, what happened with him? I do remember him saying we were nuts that SSM would not lead to more, but what pushed him out the door?

Trump happened. Ace was pro, Gabe thought he was gonna make buttsecks illegal.
Posted by: Ian S. at May 24, 2022 01:11 PM

Ahhh, the Trump wars. That's kind of when I left for a while or took a break. Oddly enough I was against Trump at first. Then like Ace I warmed and then I was digging through Trumps Trash. I still love Trump, some of the shine is off but still love what he did. I love this place and it sucked to see a civil war going on so I just stopped checking in and or commenting for a while. It's OK to disagree but sometimes when it gets ugly there's no point, you're not going to change anyone's mind at that point.

481 454 HR departments are a cancer upon the nation. They start this DIE crap, then maaaany people in the company go along with it because they think they have to for one reason or another. We need to start cleaning these departments out. Bring them back to a minimum staffing level and let them know that they are only in charge of benefits paperwork, etc. We are losing ground FAST because of this nonsense.

And All State is apparently associated with the same group as State Farm, but generally confined their activities to adult, in-office presentations.

Exactly. The "How does SSM affect your marriage? It doesn't" argument.

Love is love blah blah blah. They didn't say anything about wanting to love our kids behind our backs. That took all of 10 years, even less, huh?

If you were born that way, no amount of grooming will change someone who wasn't born that way.

If it's a matter of choice to be gay, you can choose to be straight.

508 Epoch Times reports https://tinyurl.com/tn7tm6yj

Various NGO's driven by Gates and the WHO held n exersize called the 'Monkeypox games" in 2021 which imagined that in May 2022 a weaponized amped up version of monkey pox being released and hundreds of millions dead by 2023.

In february 2020 2 months before the CCP virus pandemic hit the US in earnest a similar game imagining the same scenario with coronaviruses was held in NYC with Gates, WEF etc., participating.

These arrogant MF'ers are worse than Bond Villians. They just can't resist running thier yaps about their sooper dooper genius plan to kill most of us and rule whats left.

509 State Farm is now claiming they've seen the light and have sworn off Grooming Children.

That is not what they are saying at all.

They're saying they are still in favor of grooming children, but they will simply support groups which force parents to groom children into the gender dysphoria cult.

They are still 100% supporting grooming children into the gender dysphoria cult, but they're trying to say that they're supporting parents doing it, with the help of generous financial support from State Farm to radical grooming groups which push the gender dysphoria materials on parents.
