What is it with these large companies that are reaching out to a fraction of our society. Are they that desperate for sales or are they kissing up to the PC diversity crowd and hoping to score brownie points with them for being so open minded?



Back in the day Converse made their name on the basketball court and today they seem to be looking for approval in the court of public opinion.

So, his parents are the "sick af" ones, I assume?


As an aside, No Doubt doesn't have a song called "Like A Girl" - from the article in the first post of that thread.

What the parents are doing to that CHILD is child abuse. Converse is jumping on board with it and endorsing it. No child understands something like transgender mental illness at such a young age. He should be taken away from those "parents" of his.

Back in the day Converse made their name on the basketball court and today they seem to be looking for approval in the court of public opinion.

It is social engineering and wanting to appease/fit in with the SJW crowd. The SJW crowd is getting more extreme and brazen by the day. This is some really sick stuff with Converse. People with children need to really monitor what their kids are watching on TV and the current stuff being pushed in schools and pop culture. This is all an agenda to get kids to question their "identity" and sexual orientation. The social engineers in society have an obsession with children (to put it mildly). It is pure evil and they love nothing more than to steal a child's innocence. This is some dark stuff and people need to take a stand against this tripe.


I have never been a religious person per se (at least not organized religion), but the more I see the various agendas that are being openly pushed, it really is true evil. Good vs. evil. Which one are you going to let win?

Sad.

Sad that this child is apparently not comfortable with being a "normal" boy. (Meaning not wanting to always look like a boy and doing normal boy-type -- or at least normal child-type -- things.)

Sad that he will probably grow up feeling like a freak. (Yes, I do have sympathy for people who are "different" and who don't want to be part of a very tiny part of the population.)

Sad that this child is being promoted to benefit his parents, if what the other thread about this is true, and a major company

Sad that more and more companies today pander to tiny minorities.

Sad that people today have to worry about using the correct pronouns in order not to risk offending anyone.

Sad that anyone who does not agree with the viewpoints of extreme liberals is (usually) labeled as a bigot.

In short, I feel that this boy should be pitied but not ashamed, but I think that both his parents and Converse should feel VERY ashamed.

Is an 11 year old playing with a band for tips in a bar that serves alcohol at 3 am child abuse? One of the best guitar players I know was playing bars at 10.

Here's a video.


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TqjOEKYOav0

There is a comment just a minute or 2 in where Michael Alig says someting about "oh you took that earlier (a little while ago" as if he gave the kid something.

Also check out:
"Rohypnol" is written on the artwork behind them.
"Ketamine" is written on a keychain.

They also dress the child up like a panda
Panda: in pedophila rings it refers to a child with 2 black eyes from being beaten before/during sex with pedophile

And if that isn;t enough???
Michael Alig is a convicted murderer who spent 15+ years in prison. He killed a friend in his apartment, kept the body in the bathtub for a week, then chopped up the body and took it by taxi to the river where he dumped it.

Parents of the freaking year.
Google it.
Then come back and say how great the parents are.
All of it is 100% absolutely TRUE.
