Target announced they're pulling some items from their famous annual Pride collection, which has become a huge hit in the wider LGBTQ community over the past decade.
They don't want some concessions. They want all of them. But there's a colder truth at play here.In their statement, Target wrote: "Since introducing this year's collection, we've experienced threats impacting our team members' sense of safety and well-being while at work.
Given these volatile circumstances, we are making adjustments to our plans, including removing items that have been at the center of the most significant confrontational behavior."In case you're wondering, the items in question are harmless but have become the center of the perpetual anti-LGBTQ conservative outrage machine that has plagued our national discourse at a fever pitch over the past few years.
Folks may think this is about a few clothing items, but it's not. I promise it's not. These are the same people who were livid that Pink Floyd used a rainbow in their 50th anniversary logo for "The Dark Side of the Moon" —for the unfamiliar, that iconic album cover depicts light being shone through a glass prism and dispersed into the color spectrum, also known as a rainbow.
