Target's $150,000 Donation To Fund Anti-Gay Politics | Gay Rights | Change.org Target Boycott Movement Grows Following Donation to Support "Antigay" Candidate - Political Hotsheet - CBS News Did anyone else hear about this? I honestly think it's ridiculous about people throwing a hissy fit... So what if the CEO is a republican (Assuming since he is backing a republican)? That's his right. Target has a lot of policies in place to protect everyone from any kind of harassment. They kind of over do it, as well. They have someone there who handles it as well as numbers to call in case nothing is done about it by any of the managers in the store... Not only is it to protect gay and lesbians, but EVERYONE. It seems like the CEO made a poor business decision... But does that mean target as a whole are homophobic drones who kiss the CEO's ass? No. Sorry, but the reaction I have seen from the gay community so far is pretty ridiculous.
