Submitted by: fancylad 4 years ago in Misc

Target is fully embracing the gays with their latest print advert. Are they genuine or pandering?

Suck my d*ck Target. 4 years ago you wouldn`t allow your employees to say Merry Christmas. Last year, I saw signs all over the store with the same slogan. Now you`re pandering to gays - next year you`ll be taking it down out of repercussions from mainstream outrage. You`re a big-box retailer - just stick with what the mainstream demands, and you won`t look like a bunch of pansies.

I don`t think they`re pandering because it takes a lot of balls to put out an advertisement like that. Good on them and their massive balls.

I DON`T AGREE WITH YOUR OPINION THEREFOR YOU ARE EVIL!!!!![/quote]
People like you who simplify in such a pathetically inadequate manner will never get it, but I`m going to try and explain it anyway in the hope that I can persuade others against following you.

You can have an opinion. Have all the f*cking opinions you want. Voice them, if you want.

But when you are spending money that I give you to purchase your product to try and legislate your opinion and restrict/outright violate the rights of others, then f*ck you, I won`t be giving you any more money.

And guess what? It`s my right to be of the opinion that you, who wants to restrict the rights of others based on your "morals," are an assh*le.

So f*ck both of you morons. I might be a bigot against you, but at least I`m not trying to keep you from living your life.

@infantry0 I think gay sex is gross too. That`s why I`m straight. The thing of it is there are a bunch of people out there that enjoy gay sex. They aren`t asking to be able to have gay sex in public. All they want is the right to spend the rest of their lives in a loving relationship. I say who the hell am I to tell them they can`t. Go ahead and do what makes you happy gay community.
Also I noticed that you only mention the whiskers and penises so this must mean that lesbian sex is A-OK right?

I have to agree wiht an-egg. It would seem that mere tolerance is no longer acceptable to an increasing amount of hardline gays. They seem to want to rub the public`s nose in it. (sorry about that metaphor!) But I think you know what I mean. Call me prudish, but I`m not too keen on overt scenes of affection in public, between a male and female. THIS sort of thing just flat-out creeps me out. Buuut, tell a lie often enough, and it`ll eventually become the truth. I think South Park hit the nail on the head, in the episode where Mr Garrison wanted to be sacked for being gay, so he`d get compensation. People are just TOO liberal, in the case of homosexuality these days. If you`re that way inclined, then good for you....but I don`t want all the gory details.

2 Questions:-

1) Who/What are Chick-Fil-A
2) I assume they`ve pissed off the gay community somehow, but for the benefit of someone who`s not heard about it (I live in Germany), what did they do?

if its popular and what you want to do is make money, go with what is not only politically correct but more profitable.

@poopnoodle: Every right to have, eh? I`m gay. I`ve never stopped any straight wedding. I`ve never intruded on any `straight` church service. So it`s acceptable for major corps to dictate how I live my life?
F U C K you to every person that thinks this is acceptable. I did nothing to you. I don`t care about what YOU think marriage is, just let ME be happy. Please? Is that ok?

Personally, I admire the Chick-Fill-a people for sticking with their beliefs in the face of adversity. Beliefs that they have every right to have.

Lol... "Going out like Chick-Fil-A". You wish! They will emerge from this smear campaign stronger than ever. They`re going nowhere!

bigots are bigots and those that support them are...that`s right bigots.

I find sex with animals abhorrent, but there is no way that sex with a bull or a stallion can be non-consensual; or with a rottweiler. Equally sex with a child could be consensual if the child understands. Why don`t we just legalize the whole lot.
They are all unnatural, contradictory to societal norms and designed to depopulate the planet.
So let them get married and see what comes of it.
I`m sure that the people who rule us will be happy to see the decrease in population.

You would be wrong. Homosexual behavior is observed in virtually all mamals and most birds. Or did God make those animals wrong?

Or were you saying marriage is not natural? That` would be correct. Marriage is a man-made invention. And like any man-made idea, it changes over time and is not constant.

That`s not possible, if you`re a bigot you`re automatically an idiot. There`s no sensible, rational, mature reason for being a bigot. You`re also an non-nice individual, which is pretty much a given for a bigot as well.

Infant0 no one gives a rats ass what you think. You are an idiot. You are not castigated into a second class citizenship for your bigoted opinions. I know this isn`t sinking in and that`s the problem. Tolerance? Wow. Idiot.

And as has been stated countless times. If you eat pork, your breaking rules from the same book of the bible that speaks against homosexuality. Leviticus. Read that book. It`s the ONLY one in there that mentions it. If you take the homosexuality one seriously, you sure as drat better take the rest of it. If you pick and choose the rules you follow your not following your "religion" your cherry-picking the parts of it that make you comfortable.

I find it really upsetting that people like you would try to legislate your opinion into law and restrict the rights of other people because you don`t want to (voluntarily, mind you, you can always ignore it) watch two people of the same gender being in love.

I propose that you aren`t allowed to kiss or hug or show any affection towards your significant other in public. Why? Because it "upsets" me, and makes us asexual people "uncomfortable."

Are you starting to understand why people don`t like your opinion?

I am a bigot, but not an idiot. Of course I`ve thought about the whole gay thing. I can`t get past whiskers and hair and lets not forget the whole penis thing.I don`t think it`s a crime, I just don`t think its natural. But I find it really upsetting that my opinion is not tolerated, and the fact that I find it revolting, is not considered. But if you talk to a self proclaimed athiest about God, I`m an a$$hole. What if target were to use Christ as their next campaign. These posts would be opposed. BTW, while the Bible warns against homosexuality, I am a sinner in other areas. Jesus died for all of our sins.

If they ever legalize gay marriage we`ve decided to honeymoon
at Mt. Rushmore. ... The back side, fewer tourists.

Either your kids are going to grow up straight, or they`re going to grow up gay. No amount of pictures of gay people hugging in an advert is going to change that.

You "don`t want (your) children exposed to it"? Why? Do you honestly think for one microsecond that they will turn gay from learning that homosexuality exists? You say you "get it," but I sure don`t get people like you.

I`ve no problem with gays or whatever. The great thing is I have never met a gay person who ever told me how to live my life, unlike Christians. I just don`t know why Fancylad has to ram it down our throats at every opportunity.

Not a fan of the gays, in any capacity. But I get it. You`re not going away. I`m not saying to get back I`m not saying to get back in the closet. But am offended by this and really dont want my children exposed to it.We`re talking about 3.4% of the population here.(about.com) Yet gays have become the new "token" statistic. Give me a break. Suck each others roosters steeping in jock itch, rub hairy asses, lick dingleberries, and rub whiskers all you want. just do it in privacy.Makes me want to puke.

It honestly doesn`t matter their reason. The point is that they`re supporting it. That`s good enough for me.

Everyone is blowing thid way out of proportion. An artist gets refused that happens to be gay, than all of the sudden Target is a hate-mongering store. Do you think any straight artist get rejected? Is it to be that if you`re gay, noone can say no or you`ll drag them in the mud? Grow some balls Target, you don`t have to please the whole drating world.

@caper454 - I`m straight but I would rather support businesses that treat everyone with equal respect, and I would imagine that the majority of the 90% of the population who are straight would agree because every one of us has gay family and friends. Even if you don`t know it yet because they are not out.

Outside my local Target today, there were some lesbians in "Pride" shirts collecting donations to combat conservative attacks on their rights (long story about a state law and misinformation by the groups against equality). They had the permission of Target to be there. It is genuine. Target supports equal rights. Or at least the management of my local branch does.

I have no problem with gay people and I never have. But I have to wonder about the logic of alienating a substantial portion of the population in order to cajole the approximately 10% who identify themselves as gay/lesbian.

People make too much of a big deal out of gay marriage.. Gays are people too and should be treated as such. If you don`t like it, then ignore it. If two people are in love, let them be.

They wouldn`t have done it if they thought it would hurt them more than help them. But you can`t blame them for that--they`re a business. So I think the question of whether a large, multi-person entity such as Target can ever be "genuine" when it comes to PR is kind of pointless.
