GM Funding Program Sending Transgender Literature In Schools112
According to the GM 2021 Social Impact Report, General Motors provided a grant to the Gay Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN), a pro-transgender organization, to supply children’s books to kindergarten and elementary classrooms.
In a report from The Epoch Times, GM provided $86.7 million in all types of donations to nonprofits encouraging inclusivity around the globe. GLSEN’s Rainbow Library falls in this category, which seeks to provide supportive literature that is LGBTQ+ centered, as well as racially diverse and multicultural.
“This innovative program also provides ongoing support and professional guidance for educators to create inclusive, supportive and identity-safe classrooms nationwide,” GM’s 2021 Social Impact Report read.
“In recent years, GM and Chevrolet have provided grants to GLSEN to support their work to create safe, supportive and LGBTQ-inclusive learning environments for students,” a GM and Chevy spokeswoman was quoted as saying. “This is just one of the many initiatives and causes that GM has supported as the company provides philanthropic grants to hundreds of nonprofits each year.”
However, GLSEN has been criticized for allegedly trying to add “trans and non-binary” gender theory into schools. Notably, a parent’s rights advocate recently accused the organization of using its Rainbow Library program to “covertly groom children and influence educational policy” on social media.
GM has been working to become a more inclusive company in the past several years, and these donations follow suit in the Detroit-based automakers efforts. In fact, The General was graded as a top performer in the 2022 Rainbow PUSH Coalition Automotive Diversity Scorecard, which measures an automaker’s diversity in employment, advertising, marketing, procurement, dealers and philanthropy. In addition, GM joined the Gender and Diversity KPI Alliance (GDKA), a coalition that allows companies to measure their gender and diversity, and how to improve upon them.

This is wrong! 👎👎👎
Queen Mary should instead pay her insurance debt to retired employees.
Gm needs to stay out of politics and get back to making and selling quality vehicles. I for one will not buy GM anymore cause of this. i’ve owned nothing but GM vehicles….. NO MORE
Who cares about this crap, if you choose to live with a mental illness where you don’t know if you’re a man or a woman, that’s your problem and don’t make it mine. Ten years ago this was never an issue until the media started running with it because there was money to made in political donations, etc. If you want to be different, that’s your choice and I respect that, but don’t force your choice on me making to where I’m getting it forced down my throat by corporations thinking that if they embrace mental illness those persons will patronize their products and services and make them just that much more $$$. How many big corporations gave millions to BLM and for what, so their so-called leaders could buy themselves mansions? Talk about going head first without even investigating, that’s what’s going on here at GM – another hop on the bandwagon, because it’s politically cool now to embrace mental illness. Why not put that money into cleaning up cities and ACTUALLY help the mentally ill by getting them off the streets and treating them? Until someone comes up with at plan that will actually be audited and verify where every dollar goes nothing will get done.
Just stick to making cars and trucks!!! Don’t need any more this wokeness….
What is sad many companies and businesses are being threatened to either support these fringe elements of pay the price in the web.
The web is being used to promote agendas and to push things that most of us oppose but they frame it to make you out to be the bad person.
These companies are sadly taking the road of not fighting for fear of the damage they will be faces with on false post and stories on the web.
These global groups are pushing this and need to be stopped.
It is just pure blackmail and extortion.
Just look at Musk. I am not a Musk fan but he stood up to them about free speech on twitter and exposed how the government and others have been pushing political agendas or hiding crimes. Musk was their green super hero and not they want to burn him at the stake. They supported Tesla’s unusually high stock and now they are punishing him for speaking out.
Just look at the political leaders and even entertainers or sports figures that speak out and what happens to them if they so not fall in line.
I understand why GM is doing this but I do wish the industry as a whole would band together and fight this.
It is wrong and it should not be supported.
Well, she is on the Board of Disney. That pretty much says it all.
Look at the control element here, warning us to show respect with our comments. First lowercase letters like a child would write, then forced EV development/production, now this absolute disgrace. GM (in Caps), has been called Government Motors more than once in the last few decades. These actions and blatant, misguided use of funds is a glaring example of why. As a lifelong GM (in Caps) fan, I will always remember and acclaim this carmaker for its automotive (gas-powered) accomplishments. I will try to forget their managements acquiescence to the powers that be and the Twilight Zone of topsy-turvy times we are presently living in. People talk about being on the right side of history. GM was there, without a doubt, during WW2, as a part of the Arsenal of Democracy. Now, my beloved carmaker has become a pawn of corrupt, wrong-doers.
Please interesting that alot of people commenting on this subject. Have never even comment on a GMA article before.
Good for GM. Trans people are amongst the most marginalized and picked-on groups today, so anything promoting better understanding is good.
Rubbish. All people and many groups get “picked on”. There’s nothing special about transgenders when you begin to realize that Jews, Christians, blacks, whites, Asians, Italians, and every other stripe or color gets “picked on”.
When you solve human nature, instead of dream about unicorns and rainbows, then let us know.
In the meantime, everyone should be “special” on their own, and not look to others, governments, or corporations to find their elusive happiness.
Really? It’s called mental illness. Biden’s cabinet is full of metal illness, just look at Rachel Levine, the Secretary Of Health – isn’t that an oxymoron. More mental illness – Biden’s family should have not let him run for president, he had signs of degenerative brain function when he was running for president in 2020 and look at him now – they must pump him up full of adderall and a cocktail of other drugs to make him seem semi-coherent. When someone chooses a lifestyle and then complains that they are being picked on that’s their problem, not mine. Now it’s trendy and politically correct to be a mental defect? It should be trendy and correct to not confuse children who are not mature enough to make the life changing decision to change their sexual identity or gender. Let them become an adult and make that decision on their own, not be influenced by other people with mental illness like drag queens reading at preschools and elementary schools like they are “normal people”. Don’t cram your warped ideas down children’s throats. I am so glad that my kids finished school before all this BS began.
Stop splatting garbage! Who are you by the way? Cease normalizing insanity!
GM should stick to building cars and trucks!
Maybe you should focus on making cars instead of trying to indoctrinate kindergarteners with your filth, Mary.
Look at all the comments! I say, keep ’em coming so GM and other woke corporations will hear loud & clear that we don’t want or like these initiatives. Auto companies have NO BUSINESS funding the corrosive ideologies of the left on kids. They can determine for themselves as they grow up…but doing this stuff at a young age is as wrong as could be.
REALLY WHAT THE HELL THIS IS WRONG ,,VERY POOR DECISION ,(,,MARY HAS TO GO ) .
I’m a 30 year retiree from GM and i wish they would just stay out of this nonsense.
I wish these people would read the Bible. Hello ancient Roman empire. It fell by debauchery such as this.
I am selling my shares of GM stock, will be looking at other brands when car replacement comes around…. This from an 65 year GM car owner and from a family that drove GM cars and trucks 30 years before that.
People who support this are predators. It’s sad. Children have so much pressure growing up and now the liberals think pushing sexuality on them is the right thing to do. Let kids be kids you. That’s all this will do is create mentally disturbed children. Disgusting. I’ll never buy another GM vehicle.
I am all for these folks to choose gender. If they want to cut their balls off or have their woman parts removed it is a win win. These folks should not be reproducing in the first place 🙂 LOL
