Major corporations and businesses are sending out emails offering a chance to “opt out” of Mother’s Day-related communications.

In a viral thread posted Sunday, Twitter account Arizona Informer posted more than a dozen screenshots from businesses sending Mother’s Day opt-out offers, noting the similar language used in the emails and equating the trend with anti-family activism.

“Something very strange is happening with Big Corporations,” Arizona Informer captioned the thread. “Out of nowhere, [Kroger]-owned [Fry’s Food Store], [Kay Jewelers], [Hallmark], and now [DoorDash] have all sent ‘Opt out of #MothersDay emails to their customer base.”

“This is not organic,” the account charged. “This reeks of anti-family activists.”

“We understand that Mother’s Day may be a difficult time for some,” a message from DoorDash said, adding an option to be “removed from additional emails and push notifications” relating to the holiday.

A message from Kay Jewelers said, “We know Mother’s Day can be a challenging time, which is why we want to know if you’d rather not receive Mother’s Day related emails.”

“With Mother’s Day coming up, we understand this can be a difficult time of year for some,” read a similar email from Nespresso. “If you would like to opt out of Mothers Day emails, you can simply click below.”

Levis, Ancestry, MAC cosmetics, Stitch Fix, BuyBuyBaby, Etsy, and Cartier were some of the other companies included in the thread.

One commenter noted, “It’s really weird how they’re all doing this in unison.”

“That’s how you know it’s not organic. Similar language. Like a template that was passed around,” Arizona Informer responded.

The Twitter thread has been viewed more than 1 million times since Sunday. But not everyone is in agreement that the message is anti-family or coordinated.

One commenter disagreed that the timing of the messages was weird, noting that the emails would come out at the same time: around Mother’s Day. Others said it was merely the corporations being sensitive to people who might have lost a parent, or toward women who are having difficulty conceiving or have suffered a miscarriage.

Still, it’s widely known that sex and gender have been targeted by activists pushing radical gender theory in recent years. Women and girls have had their spaces and sports infiltrated by males claiming to identify as females, and biological women have routinely been reduced down to “person with a uterus, birthing person, or person who menstruates.”
