Target has surrendered to political correctness, and they are taking a corporate stance against gender roles.
Something that once could only be imagined in a left-wing social deconstruction college class is now reality. Target just sent out a press release saying they are, “moving away from gender-based signs.” This is awful!
We heard you, and [Target agrees]. Right now, our teams are working across the store to identify areas where we can phase out gender-based signage to help strike a better balance. For example, in the kids’ Bedding area, signs will no longer feature suggestions for boys or girls, just kids. In the Toys aisles, we’ll also remove reference to gender, including the use of pink, blue, yellow or green paper on the back walls of our shelves. You’ll see these changes start to happen over the next few months.
This gender-neutral nonsense prompted Rev. Franklin Graham – son of Rev. Billy Graham – to lash out at the absurd corporate policy. He posted on Facebook a strong message of condemnation, and noted, “I think Target may be forgetting who has made their stores strong. It’s not gender-neutral people out there – it’s working American families, fathers and mothers with boys and girls they love.”
He quoted the Book of Matthew, noting God created male and female. Then, he wondered if the company would next try to stop pink or blue baby showers.
He wants every Christian to call Target and complain about this absurd, un-American policy:
We should only shop in stores which appreciate the two genders God created and loves. That’s common sense, which is why more than 100,000 people have liked Franklin’s post.
