From Steve Gilliard, more on the contortions of Target (and yes, that's his graphic and tag line. Nice, eh?).
Do your fucking job and hand out the pills
Here at Target we offer stylish, low cost goods
and vagina control
I've been after this subject before, and leave it to Gilliard and AMERICAblog to discuss the particulars (including that Target will only respect religious rights in respect to Plan B). I'll limit my comment to this: I'm disgusted with Target. The weasels. If they want to support religious freedom, go for it. Respect the full gamut of expression. That would be gutsy. This position? It shows what cowards they are. I've got a $100 gift certificate from Target. Now, they already have the money, so tearing the gift card up and sending it in won't really accomplish much. No, not much. But it got me to thinking... what could I do with $100 to show Target my displeasure. Buy posterboard and markers and use them to make and post signs announcing Target's cowardice? Buy some oh-so-fashionable cards and send them to all my friends with a copy (printed on paper bought at Target, of course) of the craven capitulation to the religious right with an exhortation to never offer one thin dime more of their hard earned cash to a company more concermed with the mendacity of the religious right than medical science? Perhaps I should buy buckets and buckets of sidewalk chalk, and use them to broadcast a guerrilla protest on whatever surface presents itself? I don't know... I'm still contemplating what to do with the hundred bucks. Until they change their policy, it will be the last money I ever spend at Target.Posted by binky at November 14, 2005 07:48 PM | TrackBack | Posted to Corporate Bullshit | Politics | Religion
