Target Employees Made an 'It Gets Better' Video: WATCH

Target

LGBT Target employees talk about the bullying they experienced as kids.

And then you grow up and realize the anti-gay bully is just a corporate one. I suppose this clip is a good sign, but it's hard to miss the irony.

Watch, AFTER THE JUMP...

  2. Yes Target, thank you for asking, I am enough of a gonad to overlook the buckets of money you handed to haters because you let your employees do an "It Gets Better" video.

  3. it'll take a lot more for me before I even consider spending a dime there. For now, Target remains off the list.

  7. Gay whining about Target is so pathetic.

  8. @AG

    Um, no it's not. There's nothing pathetic about not wanting to support a corporation that hates our people. Quite the opposite actually.

  9. Sure is cheaper than donating an equivalent amount of money that you spent on an anti-gay group to a pro-gay group, right Target?

    Pathetic. Do the right thing, not the CHEAP thing...

  10. The hypocrisy is disgusting. If you look at info for Twin Cities Pride, the Target logo is all over the place. Way to keep them accountable for their actions. I hope I never turn into a whore for money like that. Oh wait, I have principles and like to sleep at night so it won't happen.

  11. Why always just the focus on Target? Other companies have made similar 'mistakes' over the years. Most recently AT&T, Nissan, FedEx, Comcast, DuPont, Pfizer, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Caterpillar, KPMG, Whirlpool, Embraer, Alcoa, and United HealthCare backed stripping Nashville citizens of equal protection but I don't hear of mass boycotts against any of these. So, give it a rest already or provide equal treatment yourselves.

  12. @Seriously: To my knowledge, none of those companies have crafted an image of being a more "progressive" company than their competitors.
    Many people, including myself, get much more upset when businesses presumed to be our "friends" stab us in the back. I also see this as the reason why folks get so upset at Obama. You can not proclaim yourself to be a "fierce advocate" then become wishy-washy on the issues.
    But Target did worse than that, they took their corporate funds, which come from the customers, and gave it to political candidates who actively work against LGBT issues.

  13. Well said PDXGUY.

  14. @PDX: I know that AT&T, Pfizer, Alcoa and Whirlpool regularly tout their "progessive" policies. Additionally, AT&T and Pfizer in particular regularly target the pink dollar.

    I guess it depends on what you see as the worse offender. A company that gave money to a candidate who could potentially strip rights away or companies that proactively stripped rights away.
