OK, let’s run through our checklist. The cookies (if that is still a politically correct way of referring to this particular category of bakes goods) are vegan (check!), organic (check!), and genderless (double check!). Uh-oh, something’s missing. There’s no mention of their being gluten-free, so the place needs to be boycotted ASAP (this despite gluten consumption being a non-health issue for 90% of the population worldwide).
