Default Transgenderism - a sign of the times

This is interesting (link below). Coca Cola is reportedly (I haven't seen it) putting out an advertisement that specifically appeals to the politically correct transgenderisation movement. At first glance, it seems to be a risky cultural strategy to tie the company's commercial success to such a controversial (and largely untried) topic. If I had any Coca Cola shares, I would sell them without a moment's hesitation. What does the BE Brains Trust think of the issue?

Being trans gendered is not a new thing. If you don't like it then nobody is forcing you to become trans. Easy peasy.

I didn't read any of it I just came in here to read what Dorothy and LiW said.

Predictable source is predictable.

And 8.28pm in New Zealand! It'll soon be bedtime, so not at all early!
Didn't bother reading the article. As long as people aren't hurting other people, then what's the issue?

Coca Cola will likely kill you. I stick with coffee, tea, tap water and wine.
