Target is taking away gender in their kids' toy section, in an effort to not offend anyone. They won't be using gender specific signage nor will they separate merchandise into boys' and girls' sections.
Franklin Graham is strongly standing against this and he is urging each one of us to as well. He recently posted the following on Facebook:
The Washington Post reports that Target will stop using gender specific signage in their stores. In order to be gender-neutral, they won't be separating things like toys and bedding into boys' and girls' sections. Oh really? And they won’t be using pink and blue colors to identify sexes. I think Target may be forgetting who has made their stores strong. It’s not gender-neutral people out there—it’s working American families, fathers and mothers with boys and girls they love. What’s next?
Are they going to try to make people believe that pink or blue baby showers are politically incorrect? I have news for them and for everyone else—God created two different genders. Jesus said, “Have you not read that He who created them from the beginning made them male and female (Matthew 19:4). You can’t get any clearer than that. If you agree, let Target know what you think. Let them know that you are perfectly willing to shop where the genders God created are appreciated. (1-800-440-0680). Target is way off-target on this one.
Do you agree with Franklin Graham? We would love to hear your thoughts.
