Another Cross-Post re: Target

There are always choices to be made. Business growth versus human rights (yes, gay rights ARE human rights, people)seems like it should be a no brainer. Will this change your mind about shopping at Target?

I quit shopping there after I saw this, but I'm not going to judge my friend with three kids for working there, nor would I tell my husband not to work there if they called him for an interview. Perhaps that makes me a hypocrite, but I can't justify either person saying no to earning a living for their families in the name of my beliefs, :(.

Again, I agree with you. It's not the worker's fault. I choose not to shop there, and if enough people make the same choice, workers will suffer, but on the other hand, if we do nothing, it's just as bad. If we shop at Walmart (I don't) because their groceries cost less, workers in other grocery stores will lose their jobs. Save money, cost your neighbor his job. Everything is a choice, with ramifications we can't even imagine over time, but it is still necessary to take a stand for what you believe is right. We need to change the culture, but I don't know how to even start, or if it's possible at all. It's the corporate world that is the problem, not the people like my friends and neighbors who do the actual work.
