Bomb Explodes in Target Bathroom as Company Faces Backlash for Transgender Policy
Luckily, no one was in the bathroom when the bomb went off. Unluckily, this is an actual thing that happened in the world.
I mean, children could have been in the bathroom. Little girls. How fucked up do you have to be to prefer a dead kid to one that has to share a bathroom with a trans woman?
A 44-year-old woman was taken into custody on Thursday, and as of this writing, police officials have not yet confirmed whether this attack is directly connected to the transphobic frenzy of right-wing extremists who have been assaulting the store over the past few months.
Well if I was a betting woman...
The bomb was apparently not effective enough to even make the store close, just like the bigot boycott hasn't affected Target's sales, but it's still a glaring statement of just how much my fellow cis people in this country fucking HATE trans women. Enough to risk possibly murdering someone as a fucking terrorist.
This is why I'm doing all my shopping at Target right now.
