People being angry about ~dem gays~ on Target’s Facebook.
I just want to give my two cents on this and tell you a story.
A couple weeks ago, I was hired at Target. I have a job at Target. Not a big deal right?
It is a big deal because i’m a transman.
It doesn’t take a genius to conclude that it’s hard for me, my brothers, and sisters to get a job. There are legal restraints regarding the job and if you don’t pass, it’s hard to be taken seriously at a job interview.
Right on the application, it asks what your preferred name is. It also asks if there is anything that target should know. I put the fact that I am a transman, expecting not to get a call because usually when you put that down, people will throw out the application. I got TWO interviews.
At the interview, they asked me about it. I told them I am on hormones and they told me that they didn’t care. Not in the sense that they don’t emotionally care, but that it didn’t matter. I was male and that’s all that mattered. They also told me that they give sex same couples benefits in states that do not recognize them as a married couple.
At my job orientation, I was not misgendered once. Even my supervisors who weren’t sure of my gender avoided pronoun use, which I found only happens when you’ve had pronoun training. They gave me a name tag with my preferred name and didn’t ask questions. I felt safe and respected, which is huge for a trans* person.
TLDR: Target is amazing not just for the LGB, but also the T. Shop there for the rest of your life.

Well i just had a nerdgasm……
Is there anything about Dylan O’brien you can tell us that not many people would know?
the principal at my school made an announcement yesterday that the girls need to start covering up and then i found this in the hallway
I’m sorry but this is getting annoying.
It’s understandable if this were outside of school, but they’re just trying to enforce dress code. You can’t come to school wearing shorts and a loose tank to school just because it’s getting warm outside :l . They’re not trying to publicly shame girls, It’s a learning environment, don’t blame sexism for dressing like a slut.
are you fuckin serious
STOP! STOP! STOP!
um yeah you CAN come to school in shorts and a loose tank. it’s pretty easy it’s called you put it on and go to school.
a learning environment is a BETTER LEARNING ENVIRONMENT when you are COMFORTABLE.
and being comfortable goes FAR BEYOND social aspects. it also has to deal with fashion.
when you see girls show up to tests in sweats, it’s not because they were too lazy that day to dress up (though it is usually the case most of the time and there’s nothing wrong with that) it’s because BEING COMFORTABLE MAKES YOU MORE HAPPY.
if a woman is comfortable wearing a loose tank and shorts, then so be it! you are never going to be comfortable wearing fucking jeans and a long sleeved shirt in the summer time so don’t feed me that shit.
they are LITERALLY trying to publicly shame girls, thats what dress codes are all about.
your bra is showing? you’re disgusting i can’t believe you would do that how do you show your face in public?
you’re thong is showing? how dare you wear underwear that you feel good in.
you cleavage is showing? how dare you flaunt a crease between your chests fat sacs even though it is literally suffocating for large breasted women to wear tshirts.
you think being a slut is a BAD THING? how fucking dare YOU. i’d rather be scantily dressed and get sent home then be sweating my ass off because some prepubescent boy with his first pube can’t keep his dick from engorging with blood at the site of a titty.
