What was worse, is the fact that Target felt it was good public relations to parade this political drivel in front of the general public and put a price tag on it. I dropped my items on the nearest shelf and walked out.
Apparently, this has happened before, only a few days ago. Apparently the Target staff and their greeting card friends were Targeting Hillary, instead of Bush.
From the article:
The issue of sexism crosses party lines. In a society where women make up a growing part of the workforce, make 80% of the buying decisions in the household, and by some estimates, account for worth of purchasing power, there is no room and no excuses for sexism. Viewed by endless Target shoppers, this card is demoralizing and offensive and does not send an empowering message to young women and men. We ask people to contact their local Target Store Manager and make their voice heard by asking for the removal of the sexist cards from its shelves. People are also asked to call Target Guest Relations at (800) 440-0680 to lodge a complaint.
Well it looks like women are not the only ones offended by Target's friendly political marketing department.
