People being angry about ~dem gays~ on Target’s Facebook.
I just want to give my two cents on this and tell you a story.
A couple weeks ago, I was hired at Target. I have a job at Target. Not a big deal right?
It is a big deal because i’m a transman.
It doesn’t take a genius to conclude that it’s hard for me, my brothers, and sisters to get a job. There are legal restraints regarding the job and if you don’t pass, it’s hard to be taken seriously at a job interview.
Right on the application, it asks what your preferred name is. It also asks if there is anything that target should know. I put the fact that I am a transman, expecting not to get a call because usually when you put that down, people will throw out the application. I got TWO interviews.
At the interview, they asked me about it. I told them I am on hormones and they told me that they didn’t care. Not in the sense that they don’t emotionally care, but that it didn’t matter. I was male and that’s all that mattered. They also told me that they give sex same couples benefits in states that do not recognize them as a married couple.
At my job orientation, I was not misgendered once. Even my supervisors who weren’t sure of my gender avoided pronoun use, which I found only happens when you’ve had pronoun training. They gave me a name tag with my preferred name and didn’t ask questions. I felt safe and respected, which is huge for a trans* person.
TLDR: Target is amazing not just for the LGB, but also the T. Shop there for the rest of your life.

I like how in Assassin’s Creed if someone is suspecting you you can leap into a bale of hay and suddenly they are no longer suspicious.
‘hm that chap is acting strange I- oh nevermind must be seeing things’
I would be WAAAY more suspicious of a guy randomly leaping into hay at being looked at than I would be at a guy just off his mark
My schedule is fantastic. 18 hours, half gen-ed. No Monday or Fridays for the most part.
Intro to Video Game Design, Animation 1, Introduction to Interactive Media, Contemporary Moral Problems, Existence and Meaning - Evil Eyes, and three one-hour courses on Thai culture, film, and food. The last ones are two days, one 4 hour fri one 8 hour sat. I’ll be taking them 3 weekends in a row. That leaves only 18 hours of gen-ed left to do, hopefully a few of them over the summer this year. Earliest class is noon. Only one 8 week class.
I’M EXCITED FOR LEARNING
