Amazon adds special LGBT facts to virtual assistant Alexa for ‘Pride’ month
June 6, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – Amazon is among the many companies signaling their support for the homosexual agenda, by updating their Alexa smart speaker with a collection of special “facts” for LGBT Pride Month.
The internet-connected voice assistant device now offers more than 90 items on “queer history, politics, arts, and entertainment” in response to “Alexa, tell me a Pride fact,” Pink News reports. The move is the result of a collaboration between the company’s LGBT employee group Glamazon and the left-wing lobbying group Human Rights Campaign (HRC).
The new information includes statistics such as the number of countries that recognize same-sex “marriage” and trivia such as the release of the first LGBT pride flag (1978), as well as thinly-veiled advertising for HRC, highlighting events such as its yearly Time to THRIVE Conference and National Coming Out Day.
“The partnership is an exciting opportunity to celebrate Pride, honor our LGBTQ history and remember that despite all the recent gains we’ve made, there is still a ways to go on the road to full equality for LGBTQ people,” HRC said in a statement. “This project also helps those who may not be able to attend a Pride celebration in person by bringing Pride to them.”
Alexa’s Pride facts are just the latest example of the company’s support for the homosexual lobby. Over the weekend the company illuminated the glass domes at its Seattle headquarters with rainbow lights and unfurled a 40-foot pride flag, and in April it added more than 60 LGBT films to its Amazon Prime Video streaming service. In 2012, Amazon founder Jeff Bezos and his wife MacKenzie pledged $2.5 million to the campaign to redefine marriage in Washington state.
Last year, the Alexa device generated controversy for answering “Jesus Christ is a fictional character” in response to inquiries, though it has since been corrected.
Companies such as AT&T, Macy’s, JetBlue, Gap, Apple, Twitch, Stoli, and Spotify are among the many participating in Pride Month. Some, such as the clothing retailer J.Crew, are even marketing pro-LGBT merchandise to children as young as age two.
President Donald Trump, despite making some pro-LGBT moves that have alarmed social conservatives, has chosen not to officially recognize LGBT Pride Month. His predecessor, Barack Obama, bathed the White House in rainbow lights as a show of support for the homosexual agenda.
