But was told he couldn’t back out. From Tyler O’Neil at PJMedia:
On Wednesday morning, The Wall Street Journal dropped a bombshell. Almost exactly one year after Target’s original pro-transgender announcement which caused a huge backlash and helped tank the company’s profits over the past 12 months, the Journal reported that Target’s CEO did not approve of the statement — and would not have approved it, if asked.
In early March of this year, the company suffered the largest one-day stock drop since the 2008 economic crisis. In dollar terms, the drop was the company’s largest hit ever. This also followed a report of fourth-quarter profits that fell below expectations, and a pessimistic full-year outlook. To make matters worse, Target’s disappointing results contrasted with better-than-expected earnings reported by Wal-Mart Stores Inc. and Home Depot Inc. More.
Reality check: Isn’t the guy fired already? He can’t expect his customers to pay for a war on their basic habits and values. He should have got rid of the people who told him he couldn’t back out. One can’t help wondering how much WalMart paid them… 😉 😉 😉
A high school teacher in Tampa, Fla., has allegedly banned at least three students from wearing Christian cross necklaces, according to a letter sent to the superintendent of the school district.
Liberty Counsel, a nonprofit litigation group that promotes religious freedom, in a letter to Hillsborough County Public Schools Superintendent Jeff Eakins detailed math teacher Lora Jane Riedas’ actions.
The letter claims Riedas told at least three students they could not wear their Christian crosses.
If it’s tricky to see the connection between the International Day of Pink (It’s Time to Talk About Bullying, Homophobia, Transphobia) and what Eric Brazau was trying to say in court Thursday, it still feels as though there is one.
The Day of Pink was celebrated this week at, among other places, the Toronto District School Board, the biggest one in the country.
There’s a new bill in Ontario, one that threatens our children.
Bill 89 codifies the Liberal government’s belief that children belong to the state, not their parents.
If passed, Bill 89 will repeal and replace the existing Child and Family Services Act. That Act governs everything from child protection services and foster care to adoption.
However, rather than promoting child welfare as it purports to do, Bill 89 is a totalitarian bill. It will provide the state with the powers to seize children from their families for the sake of gender ideology, possibly even preventing religious parents from ever adopting or becoming foster parents.
Two bodies found wrapped in a poignant embrace in their final moments as they were covered beneath molten rock and layers of ash in the ancient city of Pompeii when Mount Vesuvius violently erupted in 79 A.D.
The bodies were dubbed “The Two Maidens” when they were first discovered but in a startling discovery this week scientists found the two bodies were actually male – raising speculation that they may have been gay lovers.
Even ancient history must serve the progressive agenda.
A taskforce is condemning Trump for not collecting census data on gender identity. Because freedom from government intrusion no longer matters.
Imagine a scenario in which the Trump administration called for all Americans to register their sexual preferences with the government. Gay, straight, bi, trans, and every other permutation of sexual desire and identity would be compiled and cross-referenced by government officials. Lying or failing to answer the question would be a violation of federal law, subject to fines. The government would know precisely what is going on in your bedroom, and in the bedrooms of your fellow citizens across the nation.
That sounds like a lefty fever dream, a dystopian vision of Trumpian persecution.
Protesters who infiltrated the Pride Parade last summer to distribute anti-gay messages will not be able to hide behind their green zombie suits much longer.
Longtime anti-homosexual activist Bill Whatcott has been ordered to unmask the identities of his co-conspirator Gay Zombies, who have the ABCDEF pseudonyms of Adam Zombie, Brian Zombie, Christopher Zombie, Doug Zombie, Edward Zombie and Frank Zombie.
He’s also been told by Ontario Superior Court Justice Paul Perell to divulge his sources of funding.
I was in the service during those years and it was the SIU, a branch of my trade, the Military Police, that used to “out” as it were , homosexuals. The reason? It was during the Cold War and homosexuality was a societal taboo. I was stationed at CFB Halifax and there was a particular concern with military members at CFB Shelburne, a SOSUS array listening post ( listening for Soviet Subs). There was a genuine fear that homosexuals in positions where they had access to top secret material and NATO detection methods, could be blackmailed and compromised by the Soviets.
This is yet another example where society is trying to impose current culture mores on past events without examining those events in the proper historical context.
In the book, the traditional children’s story is turned upside down. Mrs. Claus is replaced by a man who lives with Santa at the North Pole and fills in for him at the malls.
The new story comes from one of the writers of the “Late Night with Stephen Colbert” show, Daniel Kibblesmith, who tweeted last December that he would only tell his future child about the existence of a black Santa. On Tuesday, Kibblesmith announced that the idea was being turned into a book due out before Christmas later this year.
“Me & @JenAshleyWright have decided our future child will only know about Black Santa. If they see a white one we’ll say ‘That’s his husband.’”
University of Toronto professor Jordan Peterson is fast becoming Canada’s free speech crusader: he’s been reprimanded by his university for failing to use politically-correct speech and threatened by self-appointed language Gestapo students who demand gender neutral speech.
Peterson, a clinical psychologist, has become a magnet for controversy between those defending academic freedom and the prevailing leftist environment of academia that emphasizes microaggressions, white privilege and manufactured pronouns for students who pretend they are neither truly male nor female but “self-identifiers.”
The Canadian military will review its badges, uniforms, flags and associated ceremonial activities to ensure they are welcoming to women, visible minorities, the disabled, indigenous people and members of the gay and transgender communities.
March 16, 2017 (MercatorNet) — Prediction: by 2020, the LGBT acronym will have disappeared. The Ls, the Gs, the Bs, and the Ts will still be with us. But their alliance against the “straight” world will have broken up.
You can already hear the distant boom-boom of breaking ice. The latest absurd episode of LGB versus T took place in the American state of Maine earlier this week at Kennebunk High School. As a feature of its diversity week the school was to be the first in the state to fly the gay pride rainbow flag. But it was hauled down after a trans student complained that it might embarrass other trans students.
Emerson College now considers the term “homosexual” to be an offensive reference to gay or lesbian people, deeming only the latter two terms sufficiently inclusive.
According to a series of “Guidelines for Inclusive Language” published on the Boston school’s website, students should “avoid the use of homosexual and homosexual relationship” and rather “use gay or lesbian when describing people who are attracted to members of the same sex.”
