As if you needed one more reason to avoid Target after they decided men can use their women’s bathrooms and changing areas, they’ve doubled down on the feel-good virtue-signaling cause du jour that is Pride Month. Yes, it’s that wonderful time of year when your Main Street is overrun with floating dildos and guys wearing half-pants and walking other men on leashes to prove that the gay community is
just like us proud of themselves or something.
I always thought embracing the vice of “pride” as a motto was risky. It’s one of the seven deadly sins, after all. Does anyone say to themselves when they have a baby, gee I hope he/she grows up to be prideful and vain! St. Augustine wrote, “It was pride that turned angels into devils; it is humility that makes men as angels.” Embracing “pride” as your motto seems like you’re tempting fate, doesn’t it? Will the fat-acceptance crowd choose “Gluttony!” for their appreciation month? Maybe those of us with anger issues should grab the month of October for “Wrath Month!” It’s sure easier than restraining your darker inclinations. I explode with anger and rage! Celebrate me!
And yet there is an entire month now dedicated to pride and we’re all supposed to get on board… or else. PJM’s Paula Bolyard wrote a devastating synopsis of what has occurred and what’s to come for Christians in this current climate: They’re Here, They’re Queer, and Now They’re Coming for Christians — and for Our Jobs. Brace yourself, for there is no good news. You can’t even enjoy a freaking chicken sandwich anymore without betraying your doubleplusungood alliances, you bigot!
And now Target is going to harass you and your kids with rainbow pride displays from here to eternity. (Cue sad kazoo.)
But this won’t be enough for the Gaystappo. It’s never enough! Don’t you know that? The Hallmark card industry still hasn’t been brought to heel so… inequality! Rampant homophobia! Cats and dogs living together! #Resist!

Maybe this person (pronouns unknown) has a point. This does seem like a giant made-up reason to sell stuff, doesn’t it? How much does Target really care about LGBTQWTF issues versus the good old cha-ching?

Is this a required activity when you work at Target now? And what happens if you respectfully decline to celebrate pridefulness because your religion says it’s deadly?

And speaking of getting offended, this is an actual ad put out by Target, the same people who claim to love gay people. Are they insane? Why are LGBTQWTFs not offended at this horrific stereotype of a gay man? I know a lot of gay men. Absolutely none of them look or act like this. Zero. In fact, I was speaking to one of my friends (who has to remain anonymous or lose his job, friends and life) in “the community” about this issue and he said, “Don’t even lump me in that group. Can I go from being bisexual to being a whatever just so I don’t get lumped in?” It’s interesting that the libertarian and conservative gays in the community have been forced into a political closet from which they aren’t allowed to “come out” lest they face outright persecution. But Love Wins! (and sometimes it wins hundreds of thousands of dollars when bankrupting Christian mom and pop shops that won’t bake cakes!). Love is really what this is all about.

Yep, it’s all about love, until we tell you about the next person you’re supposed to hate with so much intensity they get fired and banned from all
