Starbucks Funds Trans Group Whose Founder Took Teenage Son To Thailand For Sex Change

Starbucks has partnered with Mermaids, a transgender advocacy group whose agenda is as radical as the founder’s decision to take her 16 year old son to Thailand for a sex change operation.

The campaign is part of the company’s broader initiative to be a “safe space” for the transgender community, illustrated by a recent advertisement highlighting the struggle of a teenager “Gemma” who wants to be called “James.”

The campaign – currently exclusive to the United Kingdom – aims to raise nearly $130,000 for the organization by donating $.65 for every cookie sold:

“Starbucks is proud to be launching a new limited-edition Mermaids Cookie, which is now available to buy in participating stores across the UK! The cookie is in the shape of a mermaid’s tail and will help create a splash for charity Mermaids, raising £100k to support its helpline services.”

Despite the bright colors and flashy advertisements of the spirited Starbucks promo, the history and agenda of Mermaids is dark.

Mermaids seeks to “support gender-diverse children and young people until their 20th birthday, as well as their families and professionals involved in their care” and enable “children and teens” with “the freedom to explore their gender identity.”

The organization’s founder, Susie Green, took her 16 year old son to Thailand for a sex-change operation because National Health Services (NHS) officials deemed the child too young for such an irreversible and life-altering procedure.

And the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree: a Mermaids representative recently told teachers at a speaking engagement in Birmingham children as young as 12 should have access to puberty blockers.

By partnering with Mermaids, Starbucks has even “out-woked” the notoriously left-wing NHS that will soon reserve the right to deny treatment to “racist,” “sexist,” or “homophobic” patients.

The organization has a foothold in “government agencies, schools, with the police, and with social workers,” advocacy Starbucks is directly enabling.

Kowtowing to social justice Starbucks’ M.O. In 2018, the company closed over 8,000 stores in the US to provide staff with “bias training” after a store manager called the police on two black men who were mistakenly believed to using the store’s facilities despite not buying anything.

While the cookie is just $2.45, that’s a steep price to pay to enable gender dysphoria.
