Assessment: As if the holiday itself is not bad enough …
A new Halloween-themed commercial for Twix candy bars that features a cross-dressing child had social media fuming on Wednesday.

3. Diversity. This is the acceptance and even celebration of transgenderism. Someone with this “lens” would encourage the transgender person to express their felt gender as they see fit and take their place in the transgender community. source
