Why Supporting Small Businesses Is Becoming More Important

The recent backlash from Bud Light’s transgender push has given many reasons to support small businesses. Large companies are getting involved in politics and bizarre trends that are being pushed by mainstream media and are misleading. Inclusivity and treating everyone with equality are important traits we should all have, but the mainstream media is creating division with their storylines. Will the market reward or hurt this behavior?

It is important to note that inclusivity and treating everyone with equality is an important part of society. Discrimination of any kind should not be tolerated. However, the way that mainstream media is pushing these ideals is problematic. The reality is that we are all humans and are all unique. Politics, race, sex, and religion do not need to be pushed by large corporations. Many of these companies are getting so arrogant it seems like they don’t think about their market. Consumers have the option to pick and choose products. If companies are going to take it upon themselves to push agendas, we should all support small businesses who do not play political games.

The recent Bud Light transgender push is a prime example of this issue. Bud Light recently promoted a transgender woman. This happened less than a week after a transgender man shot up a grade school. This is a hard pill to take. While the commercial was meant to be inclusive and promote equality, it caused a backlash among many viewers. Some viewers were upset that Bud Light was pushing a political agenda, while others were uncomfortable with the idea of a transgender woman being featured in a commercial.

This backlash has given many people reason to support small businesses. Small businesses are often run by individuals who are passionate about their products and services. They do not have the resources to get involved in politics or push controversial agendas. Instead, they focus on providing quality products and services to their customers.

Large companies are getting involved in politics in a way that is concerning to many people. Companies like Nike, Gillette, and Pepsi have all released controversial ads that promote political agendas. These ads are often divisive and create tension among consumers. While these companies may have good intentions, their actions can create more problems than they solve.

The mainstream media is also guilty of pushing bizarre trends that are often misleading. For example, there has been a recent trend of gender-neutral parenting. While it is important to treat everyone with equality, the idea of raising a child without a gender can be confusing and misleading. Children need to understand their own gender and identity, and pushing a gender-neutral agenda can be harmful to their development.

Purposefully reminding people that there are differences is actually creating division. The reality is that we are all humans and are all unique. We should celebrate our differences and focus on what makes us similar, rather than what makes us different. Companies should focus on providing quality products and services, rather than pushing controversial agendas.
