Woke Corporations Are #Cancelling Mothers Day, Becaue Motherhood Is Too Controversial Now

The same corporations that fill your in-box with hundreds of solicitations per year are now offering you the chance to opt-out of Mother's Day promotions, because Mother's Day may be triggering to some.

Via David Strom:

Did you know that Mother's Day is controversial?

I didn't. Pretty sure nobody did. After all, everybody has a mother.

Corporate America, though, has for some reason decided that Mother's Day is a "sensitive" time, a "challenging" time, or a "difficult" time, so they are inviting customers to opt out of emails related to the triggering day.

No, I am not kidding.

So what's the problem with Mother's Day? Is it too gendered? Or have so many Millennials and Gen Zers disowned their family (probably due to Pronoun Disputes) nd Trump Thanksgiving Debate that the idea of honoring one's mother is now toxic?

It can't be "some people's mothers are dead." That's been true forever, and I've never seen corporations scale back advertising on the theory that it might upset someone grieving a mother to offer a gift for mom.

And yes, it is because so many "young people" (who are now entering middle age, ha-ha) have disowned their families that the holiday is triggering for the easily-triggered neurotics and lunatics, who are now 20% of our population.

Because of pronouns.

David Strom helpfully bolded the pronouns in this Washington Post article.

A deluge of Mother's Day marketing emails flooded Michelle Levinson's inbox year after year -- sometimes 15 in a day, each reminding them of their estrangement from their mother.

Michelle Levinson is a "they"? Gee, I'm so surprised to hear They experienced strife and friction with They's family!

Then last month, Levinson received a different kind of email: "We understand Mother's Day can be a really difficult time for some of our #PashFam," read the message from Passion Planner, a planner and journal company. "If you'd rather not receive emails from us about Mother's Day this year, feel free to opt-out."

The choice felt like a breath of fresh air for Levinson, who lives in Cleveland. They gladly clicked the button to unsubscribe, thankful for the option to get fewer unpleasant reminders of the holiday.

Let's just completely change everything for the sake of the malingeringly mentally-ill who make up 0.1% of our population.

Proof of all the Woke Corporations doing this below:

More at that Twitter page, or at David Strom's link.

I think fighting back against Woke Corporations is in fact "so necessary" and I won't change my opinion on that just because that's inconvenient for the corporate-owned GOPe politicians.
