    But you see, people like those cultures, which caused all this, make me sick to my stomach. So I have a perfectly valid reason for boycotting target. You on the other hand are all cool with that, and men, competing with women, so you will go to target and buy yourself a little smock to put around your privates. That is the way you are, but that is not the way I am. So now ...[text shortened]... r hundreds of years, they are all of a sudden met with characters that they are sick of me included.

    This isn't plain language Joe. Target is a store, not a culture. It does not represent an ideology. It sells hundreds of different types of t-shirts. It employs 440,000 hardworking US citizens.

    If you walk into a bookstore selling a book you don't want to buy about a culture that makes you sick, are you boycotting the whole store? Or maybe just don't buy that particular book?

    You're mad about one t-shirt? If that's not your inner snowflake talking, I don't know what to tell you.

    I don’t go to Chik-Fil-A or Hobby Lobby in part because of their right wing ideologies

    Top Dog in Berkeley has radical Libertarian ideology (and fantastic hot dogs)

    I would not be surprised if Out of the Closet had left wing ideology

    If the whole Target store was decorated with Pride stuff it would be obnoxious just like it would be if it was covered with “pray the gay away” decorations.

    I haven’t seen what triggered these protests but I can easily see marketing business people who are obsessed with constant eternal growth and always changing stuff in pursuit of that elusive goal maybe might have gone overboard with their promotion and decorations. That’s not the same as simply selling shirts with Pride themed logos.

    Welp. Right now it's full of "number one dad" foam hands and ball caps. What a diabolical political agenda eh?

    Or maybe father's days coming up and they're trying to sell some t shirts. Comparing that to hobby lobby's radical overt political agenda is a huge stretch of imagination.

    No ones seen what triggered the rught. It's probably fake. But Target does not care about pride. They're selling t shirts.

    Edit : yikes I'm still reeling as to how you'd compare hobby lobby to this. Hobby lobby had store displays asking customers to vote for trump. They withhold contraceptive insurance for employees. They were caught illegally smuggling biblical artifacts out of Iraq.

    You're.comaring that to target selling pride t shirts?

    It's not for you to set that line. Making those comparisons may work for you but not for the other 6 billion humans. The boycott is by individuals, they each have their reason, some may even believe you when you say it's about one t-shirt.

    Analogies are not your forte’.
    You libs are hilarious on issues such as this, people a whole lot more in-the-know disagree with your uneducated ( oh, you and Suzianne 不不不). (Wow, Suzianne) comments. How bout just your line that Target is a store, not a culture. Pitiful.

    Yes WGrass you (and Suzianne不不!!) are way off on this one. One of you actually said Target is a store, not a culture.
    You have really said nothing concrete, but rather just wandered into some really weird opinions. Watch it with your buddy Sue, she will drag into a racial element.

    You confuse. I don't know what it's about.

    Joe started this thread and he can't explain it. Try asking him.

    Way off? You said the store was a culture. I've asked multiple times for you to explain and you have declined.

    You've left others to speculate.

    Many people are not in favor of woke and all that it encompasses. So we wake up one day and see what Target has done to make them customers, marketing things that are not in keeping with, shall we say, the morals of clean-living Americans. Is that enough for you contrarians?
    And please don’t segue off about my use of the phrase clean-living. There are many ways I could say it. You know, I know, everybody knows, what I mean.

    "But you see, people, like those cultures, who are all queer and raising tremendous concerns, targeting our children et, al, which caused all this, make me sick to my stomach".
    So you wanted me to go into great detail to do your clarification. You are not new on the art of Foruming. What's your story?
    "So, because of them, I have a perfectly valid reason for boycotting target." Surely you get it now, and you will apologize profusely for libeling my good name on the Forum. Can you imagine now what Sonhouse must think of me?
    On this matter, I cannot imagine a smart guy like you backing up Woke. I spect you do not have children. Please don't answer that!

    I still don't get it, Joe -
    Why is it that Target is the center of attention for what they sell when many other retailers do likewise??

    Anybody??
