Home Deopt plans to celebrate Gay Pride...(Vanity...Utah)

Posted on 05/28/2008 11:36:20 AM PDT by The Axis Effect

A Home Depot store in Utah plans to celebrate Gay pride in the Store with decorations of Rainbows and employee Tee shirts announcing gay pride. Inside sources say that this is something that will be devastating to business as most of the customer base tends to be on the Right side of the issue as they are mostly religious people. I am actively involved in this business and i dont want to be a part of it bacuae this is contrary to my belief and would like advice from more experienced FReepers on how best to disrupt these outrageous plans...

Go to work for Lowes. I won’t give Home Depot my business if this proves to be true. Not a good business decision on their part. They should have stayed out of it.

Call the AFA (American Family Association) in Tupelo, Mississippi, and see if they’ll help you out. This is right up their alley.

hm?....Is this the Home Depot in Salt Lake City that is directly accross the street from Lowes?

I don't live in Utah, but ski their often, and have friends there, so I know the city somewhat.

I bet customers will be shopping at the Lowes on the other side of the street.

“A Home Depot store in Utah plans to celebrate Gay pride in the Store with decorations of Rainbows and employee Tee shirts announcing gay pride”.....

Funny!....Have they run out of straight customers? Is Home Depot management pandering to gays for their dollar? Will they tie pink ribbons around my 2 X 4’s and two bags of cement?

If you feel that strong, you should quit your job in protest.

“Go to work for Lowes. I won’t give Home Depot my business if this proves to be true.”

That won’t work either, as Lowes has ALL its signs posted in both spanish and English - at the same size and prominence.

Contact the Alliance Defense Fund for support in avoiding participation. If you are forced or reprimanded you have a nice suit to pursue. The perverts and pedophiles can’t force this disgusting behavior in your face if you find it rightly offensive. The sickos are winning as long as we stand by and take it. If this happens, I will not set foot in another Home Depot.

I really doubt this will affect business. Most people probably won’t even notice. At least around where I live.

Is this a 1 day event (take a vacation day) or a week long or summer long event? Don’t wear the T-Shirt. Tear down the signs. Just be ready to face repercussions. Heck, ask your boss what they will do to employees who refuse to submit to such a demeaning action.

Can you imagine the reaction if they were supporting marriage and the traditional family? Suppose a major retailer said they support marriage and family. In today’s politically correct climate, they would be charged with being anti-homosexual.

However, if you quit and you were able to convince 10 or 12 of your fellow HD employees to quit, you would sent a strong message.

And what is more important, paying your bills or sending a righteous message?

I don’t understand how this would stop you from liking a store? They obviously have felt this way before, when you liked them.

Shouldn’t this be “sexual pride” or “self-awareness pride”?

They can celebrate “holiday season” all month long in December and end it on December 26th with loads of “post holiday” sales (even though the “season” of so many holidays ends with New Year’s).

Careful, I was almost sent to sensitivity school for refusing to celebrate gay pride where I work. I used all the right buzzwords, too; hostile workplace, violating my civil rights, religious discrimination, etc. I couldn’t win considering the dyke HR rep we had at the time.

Target’s similar internal campaign is on their own internet website.

By your logic since it IS on the web it must not be true.

http://sites.target.com/site/en/corporate/page.jsp?contentId=PRD03-002096

Calendar June - Gay and Lesbian Pride Month

They’ve had more online in the past. Perhaps they still do. This is a redesigned site with more Flash and fewer active links.

The bathrooms at the Home Depots in Miami were notorious gay cruising areas a few years back. Even made the news when I lived down there.
