You know who's not checking his thin privilege?

I want to launch a line of organic GMO vegetables, just to watch people falsely claim that you CANNOT have organic GMOs. It'd be great.

Huh, they must have added that rule since the last time I thought of this. A couple years ago there were basically zero rules on what could be called "organic."

I understand that's an official government blog (whatever the fuck that means) but I think it's full of shit. There is no FDA definition of what is a GMO so how could it be prohibited?

Edit - doesn't even define it in their link to the CFR. Total bullshit.
