Target loses $9 billion in one week, tells Bud Light to officially hold its beer

Anheuser-Busch lost $16 billion and it’s still going down since the boycott.

Is corporate Pride about to become a thing of the past?

Steep drops in sales of Bud Light continued to worsen for the sixth consecutive week, plunging by nearly 25% since the ill-fated promotion with transgender influencer Dylan Mulvaney, the latest industry data shows.

It’s been six weeks already?!

This is all happening because the trans were so great at silencing anyone who argued science or logic. Most of the public is afraid to use words to say what they really think about trans and so are giving fake lip service or being silent due to fear of cancel culture. Consumers have wisely decided to speak with their pocketbooks and will likely continue to do so.

These corporations are getting a wakeup call. The "koolaid" they have ignorantly been drinking is poisonous. Very many well-meaning people, on the progressive side. are just as ignorant and gullible as everyone else. I heard Chasten Buttigieg on Pivot and Kara and Scott are quite intelligent but they still smugly believe the party line that everything EVERYTHING trans activism says is good and true and that it makes them liberal and progressive.

Perhaps the little trans toddlers and gradeschoolers can be encouraged to be gender fluid or non binary and that there is no need to "pretend" to look like a boy or a girl.

Yes, Bud Light sales are basically carnage at this point. You can't drop sales 20%+ year over year all at once and not have carnage. But it's way too early for people to freak out about Target. There's social media buzz, but are people really stopping their Target purchases? And where are they going instead? You can buy all of the same kinds of merchandise at Walmart.

Fascinating B-School case study. Someone is being tasked with doing damage control and bringing Bud Light sales back. How do they do that? Should they even try that hard. It's not like they don't have a roster of other light beers (and non-light beers) to promote. But Bud Lite has been their flagship for so long, I'd assume they think it's worth saving. And, who knows, if they just let it play itself out, accept the sales decline, and the build from there, maybe the Bud Light brand will be saved - though after a significant period of decline.

I get what you guys are saying about trans—I have issues with that, too. Seems like a new form of gay conversion therapy.

But!

This attack on trans also seems like a safe way for assholes to gay bash without overtly gay bashing their “friends.”

The trans issue is very complicated for us gay folk. And it’s very complicated for straight parents trying to navigate their kids’ desires against fears that surgery might damage their health for life. But I’d much rather embrace trans then the assholes attacking them.

Of course there are a few bad trans players—mostly MTF who denigrate women. But I assume most are genuinely struggling, much as most gays did before the 2000s.

When I came out in 1990, you could still be fired for being gay. So I have a lot of empathy for the trans community. And we all know the right wing is leveraging fear/hatred of them to rally their base.

r58 It's not brave at all. They get tax breaks.

For example, in Europe:

"Employers that pay to sign up to Stonewall’s Diversity Champions programme receive support from the charity on LGBTQ+ issues. Stonewall says it works with more than 850 employers, offering expertise, advice and best practice to help them develop and implement their inclusion and diversity policies.

On top of this, members of the scheme are entered into the charity’s Workplace Equality Index and Global Workplace Equality Index, where they are benchmarked against other companies. The list is published as an annual rundown of the top 100 employers for LGBT inclusion."

Companies get tax breaks and other advantages from pushing LGBT.

R21 The autogynephile takeover of GLAAD post-marriage equality by heterosexuals like James/Jennifer Boylan marked the turning point: trans WILL be the new face of "the movement" and it WILL exercise absolute control over former gay organizations.

Heterosexuals who identify as the opposite sex have been infiltrating the gay rights movement since the 60s, seizing any resources they can get their hands on. This has been a concerted effort half a century in the making. In the words of the OG transactivist, founder of the first transactivist orgs and rabid homophobe Arnold Lowman/Virginia Prince after studying the meetings of gay rights activists:

"... we aid their cause when it will aid ours and extract from their experiences and their contacts with authorities and influential groups any contacts and opportunities that may be to our advantage."

The retail giant, which has been the subject of widespread boycott calls in the wake of protests over its “PRIDE” collection, has partnered with the Gay Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN), a teacher group founded in 1990 with the aim of “creating affirming learning environments for LGBTQ youth.”

GLSEN has been among the organizations that have urged states and school districts to refrain from notifying parents whenever students decide to “socially transition” their gender.

School leaders told the Washington Post that not notifying parents is necessary in order to avoid outing children who could be in harm’s way at home.

One controversial practice used by some schools in at least 18 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico is having teachers use new trans names for children in class but then reverting to the original “dead” names when talking with parents.

The secrecy surrounding children’s gender has prompted several lawsuits in states such as Massachusetts, Florida, Wisconsin, Kansas, Virginia and Maryland.

GLSEN has also urged teachers to intervene if children are drawing graphics or pictures involving sex so as to make sure they are compliant with gender ideology.

“When students are creating their own surveys, if they want to include data for biological sex, teachers need to be sure they include both intersex and other as choices,” GLSEN wrote in a blog post titled “How Do We Make Math Class More Inclusive of Trans and Non-binary Identities.”

“[A]nd if the students want to include data for gender, a variety of choices need to be included, such as agender, genderfluid, female, male, nonbinary, transman, transwoman, and other.”

R94, we have one of those freaks on here. You know, Pete isn’t a real gay because he’s not sucking dick on a street corner and he didn’t come out at 12.

I was at Target yesterday and they had a woman “dreaming about girls” t-shirt and Pride pet toys section. It was ridiculous.

Why would pants or shorts need to be designed for tucking? Hardly anyone wears tight-crotched pants anymore, and more so, Target even if some people do, Target doesn't sell those sorts of pants - where they're sewn so that there's hardly any room in the crotch area. Tuck-friendly shorts and pants seem made up - a way to get a few more dollar for a feature that isn't actually a feature.

Jazz was obsessed with tucking at age 3, so yes, there's demand for it.

On the one hand, they say their body has nothing to do with who they really are, and on the other, they feel the need to tuck their genitalia vand they DESPERATELY need everybody who encounters them to affirm their appearance.

"Jazz was obsessed with tucking at age 3, so yes, there's demand for it."

I get there's demand for it, but I'm saying that they don't need to do anything different to most current clothes to enable efficient tucking.

Why would a boy who wants to wear a dress care about tucking. Just make sure you have your underpants on.

“ Why would a boy who wants to wear a dress care about tucking”

Because mother said to care

But if they tuck their junk, what happens if they start flirting with a potential partner and want to have sex? Does the junk stay tucked during sex? Do they suddenly unleashed their tucked junk like a rabid dog on a chain when someone agrees to have sex with them? Seriously. How does this work?

Who would dress their kid in that aside from Jazz Jennings’ mother?

Moms who like their children to dress like them (basic, I know but fraus will frau)?

People who have trans relatives and want to show support?

People who believe trans people are a teeny minority enduring a violent and irrational moral panic?

People who like colorful clothes?

Following Target’s announcement last week that it removed products and relocated Pride displays to the back of certain stores in the South, activists in the LGBTQ+ community are calling for new campaigns to convince corporate leaders not to cave to anti-LGBTQ+ groups.

“We need a strategy on how to deal with corporations that are experiencing enormous pressure to throw LGBTQ people under the bus,” said California state Sen. Scott Wiener, D-San Francisco, a member of the LGBTQ legislative caucus.

“We need to send a clear message to corporate America that if you’re our ally — if you are truly our ally — you need to be our ally, not just when it’s easy but also when it’s hard,” he said.

Target's share prices continued to plummet for an eighth-straight day on Tuesday as the retailer faces its biggest losing streak in five years.

Shares fell 3.66 percent on Tuesday, resulting in the once-popular retail store losing a whopping $2.4billion in market capitalization amid widespread backlash to its Pride display, which included 'tuck-friendly' women's swimwear.

Tuesday's losses put the stock on its longest losing streak since November 2018, according to FOX Business, with shares at a 52-week low of $133.88 — down nearly 15 percent over the month.

In total, Target's market value fell over $12billion to $61.77billion as of Tuesday's closing. That is a stark difference from earlier in the month, when its market value was over $74billion.

The right wing is coming for the Gays - AGAIN.

I hope the anti-Trans fanatics and right-wing extremist propagandists are content with what they have done. Good work, I'm sure you'll be able to torture and kill more homosexuals any day now.

Selling a bunch of PRIDE crap for a profit is only marginally also about cheerleading for visibility, normalising, and showing support. These are commodities - they are not free.

I also think PRIDE months are overkill. What's wrong with a PRIDE WEEK bracketed by 2 PRIDE weekends? I think PRIDE activities are cool and important and fun, but PRIDE "month" is overkill. Not just PRIDE.

Here is the lists of "months"

Black History Month.

Women's History Month.

Arab American Heritage Month.

Jewish American Heritage Month.

Asian Americans, and Native Hawaiians, and Pacific Islanders Month

Military Appreciation and National Veterans and Military Families Month

Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer PRIDE Month

Caribbean-American Heritage Month.

Immigrant Heritage Month

Hispanic Heritage Month.

Target was wide of the mark on this one.

r114 but they have always had that merch. Had it last year, year before. It is only this year that the right-wing nut jobs have objected to it.

Listen you miserable cunt. Nobody is defending the MAGATS for harassing and boycotting TARGET. But that doesn't mean all gays are thrilled with Target's cynical co-opting of PRIDE and tranny agendas to make a buck. You're turning yourself blue, twisting into contortions, to exonerate tranny politics of all participation in this rat fuck that produces "tuck friendly" Asian made garbage clothes as somehow being about GAY PRIDE, because that is not gay pride.

Create your own FREAKING movement and you'll find all the MAGAT will easily find you as target. You go around media and society being snarky bitches to all members of LGBTQ except your precious selves. Then you hide behind the LGBTQ umbrella when your nonstop histrionics and provocative trolling of the world gets called out. In a nutshell, your argument to LGB is "They are coming for you next" because you're miserable freaks having daily hissy fits about anything and everything. ITS TRANS GENOCIDE!!!! No it is not, hunty.

It's not that I believe in Target as any sort of deep, principled bastion of gay rights and pro-LBGT sentiment. It is a corporation and it's trying to make money. But, what the right wing is trying to do here is crazy, and it's working, and it will be taken further - to more businesses and beyond. I don't see how Target "co-opting" the gay movement or the fact that there's a Pride Month (agree or disagree) is even relevant to the discussion.

The argument you cannot accept is that trans politics does not belong paired with Lesbian Bi and Gay. And "queer" straights can fuck off as well. Create your own movement and you'll quickly discover that a movement comprised of 90% histrionic mentally ill cunts will have a hard time growing and gaining acceptance from society. And you won't be able to dissipate the pushback by hiding in a larger group made up of reasonable, well-integrated people.
