One Thing Target, Chick-Fil-A Actually Have In Common

There's one thing Target and Chick-Fil-A have in common: They both faced a massive nationwide boycott. But the results of those boycotts are where the similarities end.

According to Business Insider, Target's sales dropped 7.2 percent in the second quarter of this year. That was the same period of time Target started facing a massive boycott from conservatives after the company announced they were opening up all of their bathrooms and dressing rooms to customers based on their self-identified "gender identity" rather than their biological sex.

Target CEO Brian Cornell admitted, "In the second quarter, our number one challenge was traffic [number of customers], which affected sales in all of our merchandise categories."

In 2012, Chick-Fil-A also faced a massive boycott after the CEO and founder's son, Dan Cathy, publicly defended the biblical definition of marriage and it was revealed that the fast-food chain donated money to numerous organizations that support biblical marriage as well. Liberals went berserk and pressured the nation to force Chick-Fil-A out of business.

The result? Chick-Fil-A's sales went up 14% that year.

That says a lot, folks.
