MINNEAPOLIS, Minnesota, July 30, 2012 (LifeSiteNews.com) Target is promoting their wedding registry with a focus on homosexual “marriage”. A new ad released last month depicts two men holding hands with the slogan, Be yourself, together.
The retail giant has angered both pro-family and pro-homosexual activists as they have apparently flip-flopped in their approach to same-sex “marriage”.
In 2010 Target faced some backlash from homosexual political groups after they gave $150,000 to MN Forward, a political group that supported Tom Emmer, the pro-life, pro-marriage Republican candidate for governor of Minnesota. More recently they have been criticized for their decision not to sell an album by Frank Ocean, who recently came out as homosexual.
But last month the chain began selling same-sex marriage wedding cards, and they have supported pride parades in Minneapolis for a number of years. In May, Target sold gay pride t-shirts ad gave the proceeds to the Family Equality Council, a homosexual political advocacy group.
That’s when we made a conscious decision not to shop there. Before that, we just never happened to go there.
Can't say we've never been in one but it's rare.
I am totally sick of this absolute nonsense! Of late, I have begun to shop exclusively, online. Where do you do your shopping?
Target has made an obvious choice on whose business they value.
When I was getting my MBA in 2005, Wal-Mart shoppers averaged $25,000/year income and Target shoppers averaged $75,000. My guess is that Target knows who their shoppers are and made a risk decision to pursue the gay market segment believing that their larger shopping base is liberal and would not change to another store based on this move. Its probably a decision that wont hurt them as your typical Volvo driver doesnt care one way or the other.
I never studied JC Penny. My guess is they didnt know their clientele and they made a bad call. Star Bucks, on the other hand, have an elitist, yuppie clientele who will revel in making an additional statement with their increased patronage.
I write this while munching on my Chick-fil-A salad: $5.98. The clerk tells me business is up. The parking lot was 75% full at 5:00pm. The store had at least 10 employees working very fast. I dont think Chick-fil-A will be hurt. Ill bet sales everywhere except San Francisco are up.
If Cabelas ever caters to this group they will DEFINITELY go out of business.
Same for Bass Pro Shops.
But then again, those kind of people probably don’t shop there anyway.
Imagine the wailing if some town in Texas or Oklahoma stated their intent to refuse business permits to Target in their town.
Who is Frank Ocean? Maybe they didn’t carry the CD because 10 people would even know what it is.
I believe that’s a myth.
Lotta queer money out there... grovel and beg for it, degenerate Target.
Target Corporation, doing business as Target, is an American retailing company headquartered in Minneapolis, Minnesota. It is the second-largest discount retailer in the United States, behind Walmart. The company is ranked at number 33 on the Fortune 500 as of 2010 and is a component of the Standard & Poor's 500 index. Its bullseye trademark is licensed to Wesfarmers, owners of the separate Target Australia chain which is unrelated to Target Corporation.
The company was founded in 1902 in Minneapolis as the Dayton Dry Goods Company, though its first Target store was opened in 1962 in nearby Roseville, Minnesota. Target grew and eventually became the largest division of Dayton Hudson Corporation, culminating in the company being renamed as Target Corporation in August 2000. On January 13, 2011, Target announced its expansion into Canada. Target will operate 100 to 150 stores in Canada by 2013, through its purchase of leaseholds from the Canadian chain Zellers.
I always sort of liked Target but I promise I will not shop there again unless they change their ways.
Penneys. Now Target. Sears bans firearms. What's left, Goodwill?
Im a Wal-Mart sorta shopper myself. So target isnt going to miss my business.
Revel on in your promotion of the Homo-Bizzaro-World, Target.

kill the shares and you kill the company.
I am about taking back the language - refudiating the homosexual (and left’s) bitter desire to change it, to *lighten it up*. Perversion is more palatable doncha know, when it’s called GAY>
Small point? k, you decide then.
I’ve known homosexuals. The very last thing they are is gay.
