Target is facing a massive backlash after an old advertisement from 2015 resurfaced on social media, featuring children promoting LGBTQ pride. The commercial encouraged kids to take pride in being born gay. It is evident that Target is promoting an LGBTQ agenda to impressionable children by showcasing same-sex couples in the advertisement.
The video features a child staring off into a mountain sunrise, while the voiceover encourages children to embrace their sexuality. Unsurprisingly, the advertisement includes clips of lesbian couples and gay men displaying somber facial expressions to suggest they are enduring hard times. The advertisement attempts to normalize alternative lifestyles and blatantly disrespects traditional values and religious beliefs.
Target lost nearly $10 billion in stock since the release of their LGBTQ pride merchandise back in May, leading to a massive nationwide boycott. The products on display showed a great deal of disrespect for the customers that shop at Target, as the merchandise featured trans clothing and attire, including a bathing suit for men who like to dress as women, and clothing for kids.
The resurfaced advertisement has sparked outrage across social media, with conservative pundits, journalists, and influencers chiming in to share their distaste. Doting parents are concerned about their children being exposed to sexual content and progressive ideologies that undermine traditional family values. By associating their brand with an LGBTQ agenda, Target is likely to see a significant customer backlash, as more people identify with conservative values.
It is becoming more evident that Target is willing to risk the religious and ethical values of their customer base for the sake of profiting from the lucrative LGBTQ market. Traditional values are under attack, and Target has chosen to side with the radical left, whose ideologies threaten the moral fabric of society. It’s disheartening to see a once-respected company such as Target resort to these tactics to sell products in this hyper-politicized era.
