Before Target stores began opening the doors of their bathrooms to all genders, Target had already announced that it is eliminating, inter alia, gender-specific toys and clothing,
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,” ibid.
But how is this not specifically designed to attack children? Over 1 million people have now signed a petition vowing to avoid business with Target over their new transgender bathroom policy, mostly out of concern for children. Why has Target chosen to eliminate the gender distinctions between young boys and girls, but not adult women and men? Why not eliminate signs that distinguish between men and women’s products and label them “just humans”?
For example, Target maintains sections of their website that cater specifically to womens’ clothing needs. If a customer walks into the department store, there are sections for maternity clothes. I’ve never seen a pregnant male try those on for size, but why the disparity? There is a bra section that is within the women’s department. Why not put the bra department in the children’s toy section, or the men’s shoe department? If gender distinctions are discriminatory, and don’t matter anyway, why separate the adult departments by gender at all? Why even have a women or men’s department? Let women browse for shoes among the men’s shoes! How about eliminating the make-up section? How many transgenders do you see modeling make up for commercials and ads? Why is that? Because women are the primary consumers for Revlon, Maybelline, etc.. and a women doesn’t want to see how that make up looks on a man before she buys it. Yet, if Target were consistent in their policies, they wouldn’t be so worried about such an effect that may have on their profit margin, they’d go ahead and offend the majority of make-up-buying women the same way they’re offending a majority who don’t want their wives and children sharing bathrooms with perverts. Nevertheless, Target hasn’t completely abandoned profit over policy.
Why is there a women’s shoe department separated from the men’s shoe department? Perhaps men and women’s feet grow differently? Nah, that would be gender discrimination and even “hate speech” to admit that, wouldn’t it? Yet Target is aware that consumers prefer not to hunt all over the place to find something that fits their individual- GENDER- specifications. It’s like going to the music section looking for a CD, and the staff have failed to keep the artists in their proper order. Instead of hunting through every single CD to find the one you’re looking for, you simply give up and go somewhere that’s a little more organized. If Target were to amalgamate all of their products in a gender neutral manner, they would probably lose the rest of their business and they know that.
Regardless of what politically-correct liberals say, and no matter how they attempt to reconstruct, and redefine sexuality, once a month every woman is reminded…that she is a woman, and she’s not going to want to go to the men’s department to find the proper sanitary products. Yet if Target were truly consistent about their reasons for implementing and promulgating such policies, then their treatment of the “men’s” and “women’s” sections of their stores should be no different than the childrens’ toy and clothing departments.
Children are more impressionable and easier to brainwash into politically correct thinking, and that’s why these new age globalists are inventing policies that target children. Do you really think Target had a particular demograph of parents from their client base that were concerned about the “harm” of gender-specific toys? I have yet to hear young boys complaining that there aren’t enough barbies in the boys sports section.
The elimination of gender-specific toys isn’t based on a bona fide need to eliminate real distinctions of genders, it is based purely on attempting to condition children to grow up believing they are something that they are not. That is precisely why Target began such policies toward children and not adults because most adults that make up the majority of their customer based are already settled in what gender they are. An adult woman does not go to the men’s underwear department to look for tampons or bras. Yet if Target were consistent, we should expect to see neutral groupings like that all of the time.
Furthermore, Target, along with many other stores, still abide by anti-discrimination laws between men and women, and sexual harassment laws. Most sexual harassment cases are perpetrated by men against women, and the complaints from women are normally that they were targeted because they are women. Will Target modify its sexual harassment policies because such an accusation implies a gender distinction? Ironically, on April 25, 2016, Target published an article on its support of advancing women in leadership. Wouldn’t endorsing such programs, among Target’s support for other human rights endeavors, be a capitulation to the gender distinctions they are seeking to eliminate?
The absurdity level is limitless when man attempts to eradicate the God-ordained distinctions of genders. Male and female created He them. Genesis 1:27, 5:2. There’s really a bigger picture here though, and it’s a blatant attack on Christians. Please see our article on the LGBT Conspiracy and the Daniel Trap.
