The Target Corporation has been holding “emergency” meetings in a growing number of stores to move LGBTQ and transgender merchandise away from the front of stores.
According to Fox News, customers are confronting store staff and managers for pushing the same offensive agenda that resulted in a huge backlash against Bud Light.
A Target insider told Fox News there were “emergency” calls and that some managers and district senior directors were told to tamp down the Pride sections immediately, especially in the South.
"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. From the front of the store to the back of the store, you can’t have anything on mannequins and no large signage," the Target insider said.
Target Pride merchandise includes female-style swimsuits that can be used to "tuck" male genitalia, products labeled as "Thoughtfully fit on multiple body types and gender expressions," a "Gender Fluid" mug, a variety of adult clothing with slogans such as "Super Queer," party supplies, home decor, multiple books and a "Grow At Your Own Pace" saucer planter.
Critics are particularly peeved about Target Pride merchandise for children, which includes onesies and rompers for newborn babies and along with other apparel for kids of all ages.
For years, Target has participated in the annual June “Pride” month by setting up displays promoting the LGBTQ agenda, sometimes setting up displays in the children’s clothing section.
This year, the company started its Pride celebration early. However, it is now paring back because it fears a “Bud Light situation” after adding the transgender swimsuits.
Here is what you can do:
1. Sign our petition urging Target to remove trans and LGBTQ displays from its stores completely.
2. Call your local Target store manager. Politely but firmly tell them these types of displays are offensive to families and especially harmful to children. Urge them to remove these displays from your local store.
3. Call Target headquarters at 612-304-6073, option 2, and politely but firmly let them know you find these displays offensive and that you expect their removal.
4. Forward this information to friends and family. Invite them to get involved and take action today.
