People being angry about ~dem gays~ on Target’s Facebook.
I just want to give my two cents on this and tell you a story.
A couple weeks ago, I was hired at Target. I have a job at Target. Not a big deal right?
It is a big deal because i’m a transman.
It doesn’t take a genius to conclude that it’s hard for me, my brothers, and sisters to get a job. There are legal restraints regarding the job and if you don’t pass, it’s hard to be taken seriously at a job interview.
Right on the application, it asks what your preferred name is. It also asks if there is anything that target should know. I put the fact that I am a transman, expecting not to get a call because usually when you put that down, people will throw out the application. I got TWO interviews.
At the interview, they asked me about it. I told them I am on hormones and they told me that they didn’t care. Not in the sense that they don’t emotionally care, but that it didn’t matter. I was male and that’s all that mattered. They also told me that they give sex same couples benefits in states that do not recognize them as a married couple.
At my job orientation, I was not misgendered once. Even my supervisors who weren’t sure of my gender avoided pronoun use, which I found only happens when you’ve had pronoun training. They gave me a name tag with my preferred name and didn’t ask questions. I felt safe and respected, which is huge for a trans* person.
TLDR: Target is amazing not just for the LGB, but also the T. Shop there for the rest of your life.
You know who else Target is extremely awesome towards? Employees with disabilities and impairments. I went one time and had a great experience with a cashier that was clearly deaf, and despite the fact that she couldn’t speak well, was willing to stand there and help me so that we could communicate things like payment and how to use my gift card. I can think of many other employers that would have turned this woman away for her disability and the fact that she couldn’t speak well, but Target had hired her and her sweet personality to do a fairly tough job, which she was excellent at. She was incredibly helpful, and all around a great employee. A+, Target.
Man I love Target
I wish we had Target in Canada now :(
I love you Target
