People being angry about ~dem gays~ on Target’s Facebook.
I just want to give my two cents on this and tell you a story.
A couple weeks ago, I was hired at Target. I have a job at Target. Not a big deal right?
It is a big deal because i’m a transman.
It doesn’t take a genius to conclude that it’s hard for me, my brothers, and sisters to get a job. There are legal restraints regarding the job and if you don’t pass, it’s hard to be taken seriously at a job interview.
Right on the application, it asks what your preferred name is. It also asks if there is anything that target should know. I put the fact that I am a transman, expecting not to get a call because usually when you put that down, people will throw out the application. I got TWO interviews.
At the interview, they asked me about it. I told them I am on hormones and they told me that they didn’t care. Not in the sense that they don’t emotionally care, but that it didn’t matter. I was male and that’s all that mattered. They also told me that they give sex same couples benefits in states that do not recognize them as a married couple.
At my job orientation, I was not misgendered once. Even my supervisors who weren’t sure of my gender avoided pronoun use, which I found only happens when you’ve had pronoun training. They gave me a name tag with my preferred name and didn’t ask questions. I felt safe and respected, which is huge for a trans* person.
TLDR: Target is amazing not just for the LGB, but also the T. Shop there for the rest of your life.
that is actually pretty damn incredible for a company of their size to give benefits to same sex couples even when the state won’t recognize the marriage. yay target <3
The one comment…”teaching this to our kids”…I’M SO. SICK. OF HEARING THE ARGUEMENT “HOW WILL WE EXPLAIN HOMOSEXUALITY TO OUR KIDS???”
my kindergartners are a prime example of YOU ARE LEARNED TO BE A JUDEGEMENTAL FUCK, YOU AREN’T BORN THAT WAY…
kindergarten boy to kindergarten girl: hey you guys are playing family, can I be the dad?
kindergarten girl:no, we already have two moms!
kindergarten boy:oh okay. i’ll be the dog then.
no questions asked.I have a girl in first grade with two dads. None of the other kids think this is strange at all and never really even ask about it act mad about it.
urgh this shit disgusts me.
I still can’t believe I’m going to be 21 in like two weeks…
Not because “oh yeah alcohol” but omg wow I’m getting closer and closer to being an adult this is scary.
But hey now I can buy wine awesome.

since abercrombie an fitch destroys its unsold clothes and wont donate bc poor people wearing their clothes gives them a bad image i say everyone should donate as much abercrombie and fitch brand clothing that you have to homeless shelters so you can simultaneously piss off a shitty company and help those in need
If I owned any I would definitely do this. But seeing as how I’m one of the fatty mcgee’s that they don’t cater to anyways, then I’ll just have to spread the word.
damn that;s crazy fucked up! anyone have a source for this??
