Target, one of the biggest retail stores on the planet, is once again in trouble this week — for what feels like the thousandth time — after it came out that the company is a big supporter of the Gay, Lesbian, and Straight Education Network, also known as GLSEN, who are on board for helping teachers get LGBTQ+ propaganda placed in school libraries and hide their students’ gender transitions from their parents.
“Conservatives have launched a boycott against Target after the retail behemoth marketed a female swimsuit as ‘tuck-friendly’ and with ‘extra crotch coverage,’ as well as hired an artist who creates Satanic items to make various designs for the company. Links between the company and GLSEN, which supports ‘affirming learning environments for LGBTQ youth’ and activates ‘supportive educators,’ resurfaced amid the backlash against Target,” the Daily Wire reported.
The company bragged openly last year about how they donated a whopping total of $2.1 million to GLSEN during the last 10 years, propping up the organization’s mission to create “affirming, accessible, and antiracist spaces for LGBTQIA+ students.”
“We are grateful to Target for their funding of this retrospective and for their support of GLSEN’s work in student leadership and educator trainings,” former GLSEN executive director Eliza Byard remarked in a statement a few years back concerning a documentary the two entities made. “Together, we have been able to change school climates for LGBT youth.”
The group also heads up the Rainbow Library initiative where people can buy books and a portion of the proceeds brought in then go to buying volumes that are given to school libraries for free. You know, so they can indoctrinate our kids with all kinds of sexual deviancy and absurdities completely disconnected from reality.
GLSEN has, according to the DW report, sent out more than 46,000 books that are drenched with pro-LGBTQ ideology and thematic content, to several thousand schools located all across the United States. These materials also include “posters and supplemental resources” for teachers.
Here’s more from the report:
One of the volumes available for purchase is “Gender Queer,” a graphic novel which contains verbal descriptions of masturbation and oral sex along with explicit illustrations, including a scene where a teenage boy fantasizes about touching an older man’s genitalia. “Lawn Boy,” another sexually explicit book, is also available for purchase.
GLSEN meanwhile encourages educators to hide a student’s intention to undergo so-called gender transition from parents and other school employees. “Staff or educators shall not disclose any information that may reveal a student’s gender identity to others, including parents or guardians and other staff, unless the student has authorized such disclosure, the information is contained in school records requested by a parent or guardian, or there is another compelling need,” one model local education agency policy posted on the GLSEN website said.
Beyond the endorsement of explicit books and clandestine gender transitions, GLSEN supports the promotion of the LGBTQ movement in every facet of a school’s curriculum. The organization has resources, for instance, that assist teachers with incorporating the ideology into math lessons. “As teachers teach about data collection and relevance, they should include whether it is beneficial to include gender or biological sex, being sure to reinforce the difference between those two terms,” one article from the organization contended. “When students are creating their own surveys, if they want to include data for biological sex, teachers need to be sure they include both intersex and other as choices, and if the students want to include data for gender, a variety of choices need to be included.”
Target has been taking some heavy blows to their bottom line, economically speaking, due to backlash coming from the company’s support of the LGBTQ agenda. The overall value of the retailer has dropped from $70.4 billion down to $64.3 billion over the course of the last seven days, despite efforts made the company to stop the hemorrhaging.
