Thought on the boycott of Target

Target4

There have been a lot of “chaos” in the US lately about transgender people using the bathroom of the gender that they identify with. So if the transgender person identifies as a woman but was born with a penis, then she is supposed to be using the Men’s restroom at establishments because people associate having a penis with being a man. At least, that’s how people want and believe it should be. This all started when Target would allow transgender people to use the bathroom of the gender that they identify with. The retailer said:

“We welcome transgender team members and guests to use the restroom or fitting room facility that corresponds with their gender identity. Everyone deserves to feel like they belong. And you’ll always be accepted, respected and welcomed at Target.”

This has started a wave of people “boycotting” Target because this “poses a danger to wives and daughters” because “a man can simply say he ‘feels like a woman today’ and enter the women’s restroom.” Take a moment to take that sentence all in. When you are ready to begin, just read the next paragraph.

Welcome back! Now, here is a breakdown of everything that is wrong with that statement:

  • That statement is very stereotypical and sexist. You are saying that women, no matter what age, can’t take care of themselves. I know a handful of women that could take on a male attacker and win.
  • If a man wants to enter the women’s restroom, he’s going to just walk in because….men do it all the time by mistake. No one stops them because it’s rather funny. They really don’t need to say “Man, I feel like a women.”
  • If a guy did walk in like that, then he probably would have been caught because of the length of detail he put into how he looked. If you truly feel like you were born in the wrong body, then you would commit fully to it for more than one day/night. You wouldn’t necessarily look like a man in a skirt with 5 o’clock shadow. You would be it all the time because you would truly be happy.
  • No one is going to “pose a danger” in the middle a store/restaurant/public area. There is too many people around for one. If they are going to “pose a danger” it would be a Walmart late at night (like 2 am or 3am) because they are open 24 hours a day. If you’re shopping that late, especially with your daughter, then you need to look at your life and the decision you mad. That one is a stupid one. She should be sleeping if she can’t go into the bathroom alone.
  • What about a woman saying she “‘feels like a man today’ and enters the men’s restroom and ‘poses a danger to sons and husbands’?” Are you trying to say that women can’t take advantage of boys or husbands in the men’s restroom? Again, you’re being sexist
  • What does any of this have to really do with being transgender now?

Now that we broke everything down, here is the real reason people are having a fit. This is where I get a little blunt with my words.

Just admit that you are being prejudice because you don’t understand and you don’t want to. If you were transgender, wouldn’t you want to be who you truly are? What the hell does it matter? Have a problem with a transgender person using the same restroom as you? You have legs, walk out that restroom. You can hold it if it badly offends you for them to us the same restroom as you. Besides, how do can you really tell the difference? It’s like trying to tell the difference between a straight person and a gay person, you can’t. People, we are looking like an ignorant country full of assholes. It’s getting so bad that the UK has issues travel warning for people in the LGBT community. Don’t believe me? Here’s the link for the article.

Now I’m fully for freedom of expression and opinions as much as the next American as long as it doesn’t hurt anyone. Well, now it’s start to hurt people, and force them to not be who they are. So instead of being an ignorant asshole who doesn’t want to pee/poop/or any other bodily function next to a gay, lesbian, or transgender person because “they pose a threat,” get to know them and judge them on their character and not on whether they have penis, vagina, or if they like/love people of the same gender. Just because they do something different than you, doesn’t make them wrong. They are a person just like you. Grow up and get over it.

Also, whats the big deal with men and women sharing a bathroom? Like I said up there, if it’s that big of a deal-hold it or don’t use the restoom.Saying that you would get violated in there is like being afraid of driving a car because you could get into a wreck (editor note: Not trying to compare sexual assault like that. Its just a metaphor). You are only using the restroom for a short period of time. It will be awkward at first but they will probably make it less awkward eventually.

Gentials no longer define gender.

Feel free to comment your opinion on this. If it get’s bad, I’ll delete them. Just be respectful 🙂

Let’s Tarwasted!

Data breaches isn’t the only thing that you will soon be able to get when you head to the retail store of Target, or better known as Tar Jay. The franchise is looking to serve you alcohol while you shop. 

Target applied for their liquor license in August to serve and sell alcohol in the a store near Chicago’s navy pier. So you’ll be able to take your children to the store for groceries and get a bit tipsy and lose them in the toy department.

Now this hasn’t been approve yet but Target wouldn’t be the first store to have a bar on-site for its customer, or guest as they call them, to partake it as they shop. Whole Foods Market and Wegmans also serve their customers.

Personally, I cannot wait for the wasted in Target page to hop up on the internet because it’s going to better than People of Walmart mainly for the fact that they are going to be totally and complete wasted off their mind. I think this is either going to end badly or be very successful (or both).

If you are in the area for the first Target with a bar in it, then it will be tentatively popping up in October. Make sure you get some Starbucks to go with that Target hangover of yours!

Nicki Minaj becomes a dungeon dragon

Well Nicki Minaj A.K.A Roman A.K.A the woman with a full house of characters in her head has decided that she isn’t happy with Wal-Mart and Target. Here is what Miss Minaj had to say:

“It’s hard to get the album because the stores basically said that the last few re-releases they had put out did not do well and they didn’t want to take a chance. Target and Wal-Mart are not selling the album, and Target is actually my biggest retailer. Best Buy only took limited [stock] because they wanted to play it safe. It kinda sets you up to fail.”

I don’t think that blaming stores is a way to go when you release your next album. To be honest, if you would like to have people want to buy your albums-then you should probably not call your album a re-release because you’ve basically re-released your first album. While the song are different, calling your album “Pink Friday: Roman’s Excellent Adventure” is basically making everyone assume that it’s a re-release of the one before it. Maybe if you tried a new album title, Target and Wal-Mart would be more willing to sell your album. It’s basically like you re-wrapping the same gift over and over. No one wants a re-wrapped gifted, even if it might be somewhat new. My advice to you, Nicki, is to try not making an album with the title “Pink Friday” because you are just setting yourself up to fail. Get creative and bounce names back with Roman for your next album. It’s all about marking and that is just poor marketing.
