They keep pushing this shit at little kids. They are trying to 'normalize' it. **** that.

I had a big argument with a former coworker over this crap. He ended up unfriending me and banning me from even commenting on any post of his I might find. This was what pushed him over the edge when I posted it in the srgument, and I refused to remove it...

Target in panic mode!

Target to move Pride merch to back of stores to avoid 'Bud Light situation': report

"We were given 36 hours, told to take all of our Pride stuff, the entire section, and move it into a section that's a third the size."


Jarryd Jaeger
Vancouver, BC
May 23, 2023
Target has reportedly held "emergency" calls with a number of managers and district senior directors, instructing them to scale down stores' displays of Pride-related merchandise.

Target's decision to sell a selection of LGBTQ-themed clothing and accessories to children was slammed by many on the right, and as a result, the retail giant has sought to avoid a "Bud Light situation."



According to Fox News, an insider with nearly twenty years of experience working at Target revealed that the company appeared frantic.

"We were given 36 hours, told to take all of our Pride stuff, the entire section, and move it into a section that's a third the size," they told the outlet. "From the front of the store to the back of the store, you can't have anything on mannequins and no large signage."

They went on to explain that Target was "terrified" of having a "Bud Light situation," and that many stores, primarily in the south, had already implemented the changes, a claim that was supported by Fox News' own investigation.

The Bud Light debacle has sparked a series of boycotts and backlashes that have impacted the company's reputation and bottom lines, causing them to reconsider their moves.

"What Bud Light represents is the first time ... where a company has to think, 'hey let's be careful, let's not go too far left-wing, let's not go too far woke because it could destabilize, debilitate, destroy the overall brand of our company'," Outkick's Chadwick Moore said during an interview with Fox Business.

"I guarantee you right now they're having conversations right now about 'let's not get Bud-Lighted' in all these marketing boardrooms, and I think Target has lost that lesson."

Went in one about 20 years ago. Got to the center of the store before turning around and heading for the exit. Bought nothing and haven't returned. They have a shit-ton of useless things and lack organization. Wasn't about to spend the whole afternoon trying to figure out where they hid the 40 pound bags of dog food. Should be a whole aisle of that somewhere??? Apparently not

it's obviously a move to push/support the stores politics. For it to be strictly a business decision... the trans numbers aren't there.

Target is offering "tuckable" swimwear now, for those days you feel like your "junk" isn't uncomfortable enough already so that you have to pack it up under your taint...

It's getting to the point where it's virtually impossible to avoid doing business with a woke company, there are just too many.

I go to Target a couple times a year, and I've never noticed the gun free signage.
