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.
Roses are red
Violets are blue
You’re the only god
That I’ll ever pray to!
I love you, Fredward!
Oh, Ganny… that is quite… flattering. I never imagined that you had such a… talent… for poetry.
“Aw, Fredward that was only a joke! It wasn’t a real poem at all! I already wrote you a real one before! But if you want, I’d be more than happy to make another. Anything for you, my love! Ahahaha!”
((Thank you for following, everyone! I love each and every one of you! Now, you know me, I don’t like showing my face online, and I also don’t like anyone hearing my voice.))
((So instead, here’s what I’m going to do. I’m going to draw King Ganny in five different outfits of your choosing. Send me ideas via answers, replies, or the ask box, and I will choose my five favorites and draw them out once summer vacation starts! It can be anything! Other character’s clothes, modern clothes, women’s clothes, no clothes (Just kidding, I’m not doing that), you get the idea. So ask away, and you shall receive!
i hate those days where you have so much stuff/hw/projects due the next day that you just freeze up and go on the internet until 9pm as an attempt to escape the stress
