Hero Trolls Transphobic Whiners for Target

This is the kind of thing that reminds me there is good in this world.

[TRIGGER WARNING: TRANSPHOBIA] Man Poses as Target on Facebook, Trolls Haters of Its Gender-Neutral Move With Epic Replies

Melgaard tells AdFreak that he was just surfing Facebook on Sunday night when he noticed that Target was moving away from gender-based labels in both the toy and children's bedding sections. 
"Immediately, I knew there would be your typical outraged American spouting emotional reactions on their Facebook page," he says. "After taking a look, I was literally laughing out loud at my computer. A few more minutes in and it struck me how hilarious it would be to portray myself as a parody customer service rep. So, I did just that, and the rest was history. Honestly, it was like striking comedy gold. Every one of these people gave me the ammunition I needed for a great response."

 See, now, this is a great example of how being an ally can be so much fun.

And the best part is that, even though Target had to get the fake account removed and apologize, they clearly loved it.

I think I'm going to be shopping at Target a whole lot more from now on.
