Why Target Can't Back Down From Transgender Policy
 
By Laura Heller Contributor 4/27/2016  Apr 27, 2016 @ 07:30 PM

I write about mass-market retail.

Opinions expressed by Forbes Contributors are their own.

Target's TGT +0.84% recent foray into the politics of restrooms, transgender rights and social mores is an interesting case study in which a publicly traded, customer-focused company takes a stand for reasons that are difficult to see on the surface.

Below that surface are Millennials.

Target’s recently stated its inclusive policy that says an individual is welcome to use the restroom of the gender to which they most identify. It has immediately made Target, the Target of a boycott. There are now close to 1 million signatures on a petition to have the policy revoked comments here and elsewhere are piling up from those who plan to take their business elsewhere.

But Target isn’t backing down and likely won’t.  This isn’t so much about gender, trans or otherwise, it’s about positioning a brand with its core customer and future employees.
And those are increasingly Millennials.

Target has a new CEO: Will he re-energize the retailer?
This story is from the March 1, 2015 issue of Fortune.
By Phil Wahba  


The Target executives were taken aback. They had just learned that their new CEO, Brian Cornell, had been out on his own with customers, incognito, exploring one of the company’s stores
 
Up by his bootstraps

When Cornell arrived at Target’s headquarters in Minneapolis, he was installed in the newly redone CEO’s corner suite on the 26th floor. Almost immediately he insisted he be moved to a smaller office down the hall that is only steps away from the company’s global data nerve center.

That’s the company’s mission-control-style monitoring room, which it calls “guest central.” There a team of 10 staffers scrutinizes live feeds from social media sites such as Pinterest, Facebook, and Twitter, along with television stations, on nine large TV screens high on the wall. They watch intently and use software to aggregate data to gauge by-the-second reactions to a product launch or news announcement or to respond quickly to, say, a customer fulminating on Twitter.

The social command center existed before Cornell became CEO. But he has beefed up its capabilities, and he’s looking for creative ways to use the data. He drops in every morning and insists on two updates a day. Read more...

Target Corporation: Transgender Bathroom Stance May Cost TGT  
Is the Target boycott really a big deal for investors and TGT stock?
By Brian Nichols, InvestorPlace Contributor  |  Apr 26, 2016, 12:06 pm EDT

It’s a new world out there, where people regardless of sex, race, religion or political stance are taking a stand for equal rights. This includes the transgender community, who some celebrate and others condemn.

Fact is, some of the world is not ready to embrace transgender individuals, which is likely why corporations have stayed out of the topic altogether. In retrospect, it’s the same reason that politicians try to avoid questions on religion and abortion — too many people have strong opinions on it.

 ME: FOLLOW THE MONEY

- Has Obama sold America's soul to the gay's?  Is he trading the privacy of women and children to give the gays more rights? IMO

- The president owes the LGBT & the gay community, favors, because they donated to his campaign. IMO.

Breaking: House Committee Votes to Gut Pres. Obama's LGBT Nondiscrimination Orders
GOP-Led Committee Passes Amendment to Allow Religious and Anti-LGBT Discrimination in Federal Contracts

The Republican-majority House Armed Services Committee on Thursday voted to gut President Barack Obama's executive orders that ban discrimination against LGBT people by all federal contractors. The Russell Amendment, sponsored by Oklahoma anti-gay Republican Steve Russell (photo), passed 33-29.

The Human Rights Campaign says "the amendment would dismantle President Obama’s executive order prohibiting discrimination in federal contracting based on sexual orientation or gender identity, under the guise of religious liberty."

HRC adds that the amendment, which is part of the National Defense Authorization Act, "would allow sweeping, taxpayer-funded discrimination in an attempt to promote anti-LGBT religious-based discrimination in the Department of Defense and other federal agencies. With far-reaching intended and unintended consequences, the vague amendment could even undermine existing nondiscrimination provisions that protect workers, and perhaps even beneficiaries, against discrimination on the basis of race, religion, sex, pregnancy, sexual orientation, gender identity, and more."

The Coalition Against Religious Discrimination, a coalition including 42 secular and religious organizations, sent a letter to the Committee to oppose the Russell Amendment, warning it "would authorize taxpayer-funded discrimination in each and every federal contract and grant. The government should never fund discrimination and no taxpayer should be disqualified from a job under a federal contract or grant because he or she is the 'wrong' religion."

5 Reasons Target’s Trans
Bathroom Policy Really Stepped
In It

By Glenn T. Stanton
April 29, 2016


At its root, this new policy mess Target created for itself is rooted in this bald truth: Gender identity does not exist in any objective sense.

1. Single-Sex Bathrooms Weren’t Discriminatory Yesterday
2. Target Is Solving No Real Problem
3. Some Men Will Exploit This Policy to Cruise Women’s Restrooms
4. Target Is Risking Its Primary Clientele
5. Gender Identity Is Subjective
