    Bachman’s son is a psychiatry resident and I presume a scientifically literate young man, I wonder what are is views on human sexuality. At least he appears more reasonable than Levi, than again, medical resident have decent stipend while jobless rednecks may be low on cash.

    I am tired of people complaining about Target as if they are the only company in the world that made stupid donations. Whole Foods gets the same score on the HRC buyers guide (HRC.org/buyersguide) that Target does and no one is saying that Top Chef needs to dump them. Not to mention that Target scores higher than Bravo itself on the guide.

    If you’ve been following Pete Burns’s face as I have (very, very closely) then you must know that the pic on dlisted is actually a drastic improvement. Good on ya, Pete.

    Regarding Lucas Bachmann – he has a few gay friends, some of whom have, ummm, well, lets just say he’s not exactly like his mother. And he’s probably reading this website!

    “Who cares about HRC scores”? HRC does extensive analyses of hundreds of corporations and scores them based on how they support the LGBT community. You don’t have to read it or follow it but it may help educate yourself on where to shop instead of just blindly jumping on the ‘Target Boycott’ bandwagon.

    The sheeple on here too easily forget the hundreds of thousands of dollars that Target has given over the years to the GLBT community, not to mention their very favorable work environment.

    I can easily see Target’s campaign donation as a statement on corporate tax policy and the economy, and not one that was deliberately anti-gay.

  8. PDX Guy says

    You Target apologists do know that they are the top donor to Michelle Bachmann, right? And not just once, over and over.

    I wouldn’t believe HRC if they told me the sky was blue. And then they would have their hands out for a donation. I prefer to educate myself and not be a Gay, Inc. sheep.
