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.
Whelp, I’m buying everything from Target.
lol at the person calling it debauchery
Well this is good news
you know an artist is talented when you ignore the studio versions of their songs and only search for the live recordings on youtube.

Lately, a lot of people, and I mean A LOT OF PEOPLE, have been really rude and harsh towards people who like using emoticons such as the “XD” face and the “UwU” face and the various popular Japanese emoticons and such here.
And the fact that I’m seeing people deleting their blogs due to the fact they are getting bullied and hate mail all because they are using harmless emoticons is unbelievable.
LIKE HELLO, THEY ARE FRICKIN HARMLESS TEXT FACES. THEY CAN NOT HURT YOU.
Seriously, some of the people here who do that really need to clean up their act. And if you wanna know why there are people who see tumblr as being a social site full of negativity, these are one of the reasons why.
This has been a PSA or whatever, BUNS OUT.
wtf is happening? i’ve been using ‘xD’ since i was, like, 13 or something, and i’m fucking 24, okay??
is this really what the interwebs is coming to =\
