I am writing to inform you that you have lost my business as a customer because of your donation to MN Forward, a hateful GOP PAC which supports hateful candidates and ideology bent on squashing the human and civil rights of my fellow human beings. Just because a person is gay does not mean they do not deserve the exact same rights, freedoms, privileges and protections as the rest of us.
Target has always been a corporation who has been kinder than many toward their gay and lesbian employees. For you to now be the largest contributor to a disgustingly homophobic organization such as MN Forward, you have shown your true colours at last.
I have been a faithful customer of Target’s for many, many years. No more. You will not suppress the rights and freedoms of other human beings with my dime. My refusal to patronize your business may not mean anything to you, but there are a lot of people out there just like me who will refuse to do business with you as well, and together we will make an impact.
You and your support of such reprehensible, anti-gay, homophobic cretins will lose. Someday, gay people all over this country will have the right to be an equal human being in the eyes of the law of this land, even if people like you may never accept it.
You should be ashamed and disgusted with what you have done today. No amount of backpedaling will excuse you. The damage is done, and you are forever changed in my eyes and the eyes of millions of people all across this country.
I will leave you to do business with the kind of people you clearly prefer to be associated with: The Teabaggers, wingnuts, religious fundamentals and other scum of humanity whose sole purpose is to make the lives of anyone who is not exactly the same as they are as miserable as possible.
You will fail. You and your ilk shall not prevail, and I, for one, cannot wait to stand with my gay brothers and sisters when victory against people like you has been achieved at last. I will stand for humanity and equality and tolerance. To you I will leave the hate and the poison and the bitter gall of discrimination and suppression of rights and liberties. May you rot in the offal of your kind.
