No Jelly Bellies For Me

I love Jelly Bellies, but another one will never cross my lips after reading this: Jelly Belly executive is funding an effort to repeal California's transgender student's rights law.

"If you care about protecting transgender students’ rights, you may have something to consider when stocking up on Halloween candy this year.

"As Karen Ocamb at Frontiers LA reports, according to recently disclosed records, the chair of the Jelly Belly Candy Company is a major contributor to the Privacy for All Students campaign, a California-based anti-transgender students’ rights initiative fronted by Proposition 8 architect Frank Schubert."

  1. Now I have two good reasons NOT to buy them....



  2. I also take great pleasure in NOT buying the Barilla Pasta which has been on sale for a dollar a box at my local mega market- after their homophobic stance which I'm sure extends into the trans community!
