Target Loses $15B since going Pro-Transgender
« on: March 05, 2017, 07:25:14 AM »
Target is learning the same valuable lesson as Starbucks; pushing leftist ideals will more often than not hurt your bottom line. Case in point, this week Target’s stock value fell by 13.5%, far below investor’s expectations. This amounts to a total decline of 30% since CEO Brian Cornell sparked controversy and boycotts by welcoming the transgender agenda with open arms. That 30% decrease means investors are taking a $15 billion hit.[/color]

On April 19, 2016, Cornell released a public statement that laid out Target’s stance on Transgender restrooms. He pointed out that Target stores would “welcome transgender team members and guests to use the restroom or fitting room facility that corresponds with their gender identity.” The announcement immediately caused outrage, and millions of shoppers vowed to boycott until the decision was reversed. A week after the statement was released YouGov BrandIndex eluded to the aftermath that the stance would cause. At that time they reported the percentage of consumers who would consider buying items at Target the next time they want to go shopping dropped from 42% to 38%, marking the company’s lowest consumer perception in eight months.

Target WHO?

The one wonderful thing about progs is they hardly ever learn from mistakes. This lack of adjustment response, which is displayed by almost any complex living organism, is signiifcantly lacking in humanist progressives because they refuse to admit to mistakes. Any and all adverse consequences for their actions is always the fault of some group of "haters," "*-phobes," and or "bigots".

Since their actions cannot possibly be at fault, they see no need to change. Fortunately for the rest of society, the inability to formulate adjustment response from negative outcomes usually result in extinction of the behavior, if not the group demonstrating the behavior.
