"Friendly Fire"

Target Stores shareholders aren't too happy with the policy to allow men to enter women's restrooms and/or dressing rooms if they decide they're women today. They demanded an answer from their CEO as to why this was done. He kept repeating that “mantra” about “inclusivity” (not even a word) and “diversity,” completely ignoring the fact that transgenders are less than .01% of the populace, at large. The shareholders said that “He just doesn't seem to understand that he has offended the sensibilities of millions of Americans.” By so doing, he has cost Target billions of dollars in lost sales. I wouldn't give a dime for his job, soon. He thinks he is boss and his word is law. But he'll soon learn that the shareholders are more powerful than he ever was. And they're PISSED! Maybe there aren't too many transgenders among them, either. The CEO said this had not affected Target's financial performance in any way, ignoring the significant drop, worth $billions, in their stock price, dating from the day the new bathroom policy was announced. The shareholders said that “bordered on fiduciary negligence.” Harsh words, and I'd bet a prelude to demanding his resignation as CEO. (World Net Daily)
