So You’ve Decided to #BoycottTarget, Now What?

Hundreds of thousands of Faith Driven Consumers and other Americans are deeply frustrated with Target over its recent decision to allow men in its women’s bathrooms. We understand your frustration and anger; the question is—what do you do about it now? Some folks are calling for #BoycottTarget—the idea that you just stay out of the store.

The problem is—whether from the Right or the Left—boycotts are typically not effective.

Boycotts—like fast food—may feel good, but ultimately you don’t get what you need and the hunger for something better remains the same.

Enter the BUYcott—positively and proactively choosing to DO business WITH brands that are a better fit for you. When huge groups of people get together, go TO places, and let everyone know WHY, that is how you change the world! 

Ready to BUYcott other companies and send a message to Target?

Here’s a list of 10 places you can shop—based on our company review system called the Faith Equality Index—that offer a better fit when it comes to the values and biblical worldview of Faith Driven Consumers like you and me. Each is either a direct competitor to Target (like archrival Walmart) or offers products in competition with Target.

  • Religion is the ENEMY. You base your facts on a book. Pieces of paper that should be free for all to have, yet, you buy them for $40+ each. Don’t forget your bible purses! Those cost anywhere from $10-$50+. How do you guy NOT see this pyramid scheme you’ve all been brainwashed to believe? The bible says this, the bible says that. You wanna know what Bill & Ted said to humanity?

    BE EXCELLENT TO EACH OTHER

    Yet no matter what, your precious book and other religions precious books are what’s causing all of the hate and horror in the world.
  • Even though I’m a man of God I wanted to share my short story about the displeasures I have against this issue.

  • It’s not my job to educate you. i will refer you to the positions of the AMA, the American Psychological Society, the Am. Psychiatric Society and the Am. Academy of Pediatricians, who all contend that the proper treatment protocol for patients with gender dysphoria is to assist in their transition. It’s not a sin, it’s part of the normal range of human behavior, and has been for thousands of years. There are gatekeepers, and checks and balances to advise someone who shouldn’t transition, to not transition. But like all systems, mistakes occur. Not allowing someone to transition is an ever bigger mistake, given the rate of suicide for people who are not allowed to transition.

    The bathroom debate is virtually the same debate we had in 1960. You didn’t want to share the bathroom with ‘those people’ then, and you don’t want to share with a different group of ‘those people’ now. Guess what: You’re going to have to, just like they did in 1960. It may take until 2060, but you’re going to have to get used to it.
  • Faith Based Consumer must think trans women are men!

    That’s because they are. They have the biology and dna of a man. So those dudes are dude . Their clothes, cosmetics, or state of mind does not dictate reality.

    99% of the medical community understands that and supporta trans women as women.

    Source please. Never use rediculous numbers without a source. It’s rare that the science community would agree in such a concensus over a long period of time. However, do you know what area they tend to agree on unanimously, chromosomes. Xx and xy mean stuff. It has only been within the last two decades there has been a push from the social science community to separate the terms gender and sex. However, that’s just semantics in the end.

    It’s uncomfortable when your ideology and theology are challenged, especially when science challenges them, but growth only occurs when you get out of your comfort zone.

    I doubt you can, but if you could see the irony of your statement, you’d giggle like a little school girl (actual girl, not a pretend one).

  • Yeah, not so much. I am a (Christian) Trans woman who worked at Walmart – in Mississippi! – beginning in 2012 until late last year. They supported me completely as an employee and as a customer. I interacted with Bentonville no less than 5 time concerning their position on trans people, including restroom usage, and they supported me at EVERY turn and made it CRYSTAL clear to the management of the store where I worked, and the one near my home, that my access to the ladies room was not to be hindered in any way.

    This was not a new policy when I began working there. Call them and find out for yourself.

    Moreover, with the exception of Hobby Lobby, it’s an industry wide practice for major retailers, and other high traffic outlets such as theater and restaurant chains, sporting events, and so forth. If you MUST take your business elsewhere, you’re going to have to find small, local, outlets with restroom policies you support.

    Of course, given that these policies have been common for years, and given that 18 states and 225+ cities have laws to this effect – some for decades – and none of the bad things y’all predict ended up happening, you COULD focus your efforts on preaching the grace of Christ instead of culture war stuff, but that’s not my business.
