Is Target finally on target?

Store sells shirts to help defeat gay marriage ban

Years ago, we boycotted Target because of their treatment of gay people—including big donations to anti-gay campaigns and organizations. (I was also not impressed with Target pharmacists denying women Plan B.) However, they’ve been making improvements over the years—so much that my husband actually applied to work there while he was laid off and now works there—and today I read something that actually made me think that Target, like JC Penney, might actually, finally, be on target.

The company is now selling T-shirts to help defeat an anti-gay marriage ban in Minnesota. The T-shirts, which are $12.99, are available in four different styles, including one that declares, “Love is Love,” which was designed by Gwen Stefani.
