Um... too late the gay community at large slammed Target back when it was cool. Soo... ya

But really Target cant win for any thing. First it pisses of we GLBT people with the whole donation thing then it gets on the.. well the only side the hate group Family research Council has.

Personally I'm still on the screw target side of the fence.

That is the real offense here.

When they strike out at ANYTHING that bothers them, and that is ANYTHING that is not dripping in specious "family values", it loses meaning after a while. They remind me of junkyard dogs, a vicious stream of barking anytime anyone walks by, but as soon as he is past, the dog calms down and lays down in a shady spot in the dirt and naps. I tend to ignore them, "the dog barks,but the caravan rolls on by."
