As the month of June approaches, when many corporations celebrate a “pride month” for LGBTQ people, the retail giant Target has unveiled a line of clothing, including swimsuits, that are meant to accommodate so-called “transgender” people who believe they are of the opposite gender.
As reported by the Daily Caller, comedian Chrissie Mayr first posted about the store’s line of swimsuits that are described as providing “extra crotch coverage” and “tuck-friendly construction” for men who are trying to pretend that they are women.
“Thanks to [Target] I found the perfect swimsuit for creeping out all the women and children at the pool this summer,” Mayr mockingly wrote on social media, as she posed next to the disturbing swimwear.
Another post by Citizen Free Press not only featured the same pride-themed swimsuits, but also included pro-LGBTQ clothing that is specifically marketed towards children. These clothes were also called out by a social media user known as “Gays Against Groomers,” who described the products as “disturbing.”
“This is what you will find in the kid’s section of [Target],” the post from Gays Against Groomers read. “We urge you to take your business elsewhere. They are indoctrinating and grooming them with LGBTQ ideology. It is highly inappropriate and disturbing.”
“We hope there are enough parents out there that understand how wrong this is and show them that this garbage will not sell,” the user continued. “The only thing these people understand is money. Target deserves the Bud Light treatment. We will work to put the pressure on them,”
The mention of Bud Light is a reference to the beer company’s disastrous marketing campaign that featured Dylan Mulvaney, a male actor who has spent the last year pretending to be a woman, complete with beer cans featuring Mulvaney’s face. As a result, Bud Light sales across the country have plummeted, eventually leading to the company firing the vice president of marketing who was responsible for the campaign.
Despite the backlash, many other companies are expected to show similar displays of pro-LGBTQ products and marketing, as is often the case during the month of June.
