Tech Giants (Including Apple) Flip Bird to America, Rally Behind Trans Teen Suing Over Bathrooms...
Where transgenders decide to sprinkle their tinkle is NOBODY'S BUSINESS! Except it's everyone's business. Including that of white-knightly tech giants like Apple and Ebay. You may recall not long ago Trump reversed Obama's decision which forced states to allow trannies into certain bathrooms. Our current President didn't outlaw those transgender bathroom privileges, but simply restored the states' power to discern for themselves. Therein lies the outrage.
Apple and other companies have decided to take a stand... By getting involved in a lawsuit filed by a trans student suing his school for boys' bathroom privileges.
Something to note here? People were uncomfortable sharing the restroom with Gavin Grimm, the girl-boy, so the school provided a unisex restroom to him in an attempt to make everyone happy. The boys wouldn't have to bare themselves before a lady-man, and the trans student wouldn't have to share a restroom with girls. But it wasn't enough for the amorphous slug. Of course.
Now he's demanding access to the boys' rooms via lawsuit. Entitled little toad. This is the case that Apple and friends are jumping in to support...
A number of leading tech firms plan to file a brief in favor of transgender rights in a case due to be heard next month in the Supreme Court. Apple has been among those leading the charge on the effort, along with... Affirm, Box, Ebay, GitHub, IBM, Microsoft, PayPal, Salesforce, Slack, Tumblr, Yelp.
Apple has already spoken out on the Trump Administration's move to pull back on Obama-era guidance that interpreted existing law to require schools to let students use the restroom that matches their gender identity. The Supreme Court case, involving Virginia high school student Gavin Grimm, asks the court to weigh in on the same question.
These companies really, really care about rights. Just not the rights of the states. Or those who want to potty in peace. It seems as though Apple misses not a single opportunity to get hyper-political (see Apple Goes Full PC, Replaces 'Offensive' Gun Emoji With Squirt Gun... and Far-Left Apple CEO to Wage War on Fake News. Misses HUGE Irony...). We're finding that tech companies are becoming more and more politically involved. Why stick with creating better tech products when you can wade into potty politics? Maybe there's an app for that.
Look, this is America, where businesses can say and do what they please. The problem here? These companies are alienating a large portion of their customers who support Trump and his policies. The policies they recently shat on. These companies aren't simply disagreeing with Trump's recent actions, but have actually gone full SJW. Every time Trump does something they disagree with, we see companies making moral attacks and waging war on those who have different opinions than them. Some virtue signaling companies punished states like North Carolina for non-conformity. Tolerance.
An important tidbit of information: the majority of these companies are public. They're not untouchable gods of political sway (see Surprise! Target Stock DROPS Since Transgender Bathroom Policy and GrubHub Stock Drops Majorly After Demanding Trump-Voting Employees Quit). Their shares are susceptible to sinking lower than the likes of Gavin Grimm's triple chin giblets.
So a friendly piece of advice to Apple and cronies? Less political bullying, more phone making. Stick to your day jobs.
While we're talking about man-trannies...
