The cost of convergence

Target is learning that pursuing social justice objectives is not conducive to business:
Target’s corporate stock has plummeted significantly this week, after a petition to boycott the store crossed 1 million signatures.

The petition and subsequent boycotts are a result of Target’s corporate campaign to open up bathrooms and changing rooms in their stores based on internal gender identity rather than biological anatomy.  The new policy has sparked concern that predators will use the store’s policy to target others, specifically women, by claiming that they feel like a woman on the inside.

Just this week, a biological man was arrested after allegedly secretly filming a woman trying on bathing suits in a Target dressing room in Missouri.

Recent polls have shown that Americans’ feelings towards open-bathroom policies have hardened significantly in the month of April, with support for the open-bathrooms concept falling by more than 20 percentage points.

Amid the turmoil surrounding the new policy and the immediate abuse of it in Missouri, the company’s stock fell from $84.10 per share on April 19 to roughly $79.36 as of Friday morning. That loss of $4.74 per share, if constant, would represent a corporate loss of over $2.5 billion.
As a general rule, people support SJW nonsense in theory considerably more than in any form of practice that will actually affect their own lives. Once there is a cost to virtue-signaling, the average individual will back off. The SJW, on the other hand, will double-down, convinced that the sacrifice proves his superiority.

The short sighted problem is that looking at the stock for a week isn’t realistic. The low this year for TGT was $67.59 in January and had nothing to do with Trans anything. Market volatility has all the stocks looking this way. Talk to me in a month or 6 when people forgot what they weren’t going to Target for. We also had a price mid week of $83.29. Tell me what you think Monday morning when all the buys happen over the weekend when the stock prices are low and people want to take advantage and hedge against the boycott going south. A week does not a trend make in the stock market, no matter how important of an issue we are addressing

Wonderful news indeed. It's good to see the success of various economic tactics.

For entities such as universities, which are so reliant on good will to obtain their funds, and are also so staunchly leftist and SJW converged, starving them out is a fine strategy.

I'm happy to see that it works on a major chain, Target, as well.

Anonymous Leonidas April 29, 2016 5:03 PM  

@4:

I had a similar thought, and I was wondering if they (like many other companies) had just released their earnings report. A quick search shows that that's not due for another couple of weeks, but they did just raise their internal minimum wage to $10 an hour, announce their CEO's pay package for 2015, and announce that execs are all losing company car privileges. Two out of three of those don't sound like good news for Target, and the third (CEO pay) could go either way depending on what investors read into it.

So yeah, I don't think this has much to do with the boycott.

On the other hand... Target's been having serious trouble ever since the major fiasco with their POS system getting hacked, and they weren't in great shape before that. Seems to me like this is a poor time to be wading into social issues that can only hurt them. And that is probably a sign that they've been heavily converged, and are unlikely to recover from their real troubles because the SJWs there are too focused on the little girls' room.

I saw an article a couple of days ago from by an SJW arguing for same sex bathrooms and locker rooms.

Shorn of rhetoric the argument was essentially that since homosexuals can see you and be aroused in those settings then modesty is bullshit and you need to get over it.

I was surprised that he was so honest.

Of course there was no commenting, but, I wanted to ask, if modesty is bullshit, shouldn't men (and women) be able to walk around naked? Why shouldn't I, if I so desire and the weather is accommodating, be able to walk around with my penis in full view? Why shouldn't I be able to sit next to young women with my penis in view? Why exactly is that against the law?

And what about revenge porn? How can that be considered "wrong" if modesty is now an outmoded concept?

Because if modesty is outmoded why should your opinion on who gets to see my wang doodle or your body have any sway whatsoever?

Blogger John Morris April 29, 2016 5:19 PM  

Of course the obvious solution to the boycott is to force their competitors to do the same so people will have no choice. Watch for a push to get Walmart and big mall operators (Simon is already SJW friendly) to sign on to gender free restrooms. Wouldn't cost that much (on the scale of even a small market cap swing) to fund a 'grass roots' effort of activists.

Knowing that is their likely response means the winning move is to force those retail operators to take a position now.

Blogger Doom April 29, 2016 6:08 PM  

Meh. It, to me, looks more like Target found itself at the very short of the stick, in the long run, and had their buddies drub their stocks so as to waive a white flag before any real economic harm is done. Stock prices are mostly fiction, more these days for sure. Now, if they end up going belly up? Yeah, maybe. But only maybe. That may be a way for them to sell, scrub, repeat more mildly. Can't put anything past these elite political monsters. They want your kids, they want in them. They want others in them. They want that to be normal. And they want to please the government that wants the same thing. They can just jostle a few things, here and there, and make it look different.

People just ought to cut back on shopping. Do more yourselves. Live more humbly. Cut out the leches and buggers.

But then it's time to actually go shopping and suddenly it's, "you know honey I think we can get a better price for that at Walmart.

They lost a few customers over their gun policy. (My family for one.) And few others over their gender neutral this and that.

But the fact is everyone has to go to the toilet sooner or later. How many devoted SJW Dads will feel secure sending their nine year old daughters into Gender Neutral bathroom unprotected and by herself.

As others have noted, a few days of erratic stock trading don't necessarily mean anything, just like a few days of odd weather don't prove or disprove "climate change". Target has richly earned my boycott, but it's the sort of boycott I undertake out of a sense of personal moral obligation, and not because I really expect to change anything. If we want to seriously repair the world, we'll need an organized boycott of a vulnerable target; one that we can hope to badly damage or even drive out of business entirely. Only when we can display some heads on pikes will the bad guys start to take us as seriously as they take the SJWs.

Fuck the leaders of the US and the UK, they want me dead, my family dead. Slit their fucking throats the scum. EVERYTHING is justified!

OT: Anyone notice http://reason.com/blog/2016/04/29/usc-cancelled-an-awesome-video-game-pane

The University of Southern California cancelled its planned "Legends of the Games" event after the lone female participant signaled that she wouldn't be able to attend. Administrators made the determination that an all-male panel was unacceptable, and killed the event—a mere four hours before it was supposed to start.

"In the interest of promoting diversity and inclusion within the USC Games family, tonight's "Legends of the Game Industry" Event in SCI 106 has been canceled," wrote a university spokesperson on Facebook. "A new event will be arranged over the coming weeks, and we dearly hope you will join us then."

That's probably little consolation to the graduating seniors who will miss out on meeting some major players in the gaming industry, even if the university is actually able to reschedule the event, Campus Reform notes...
The panel would have included Jeffrey Kaplan of Blizzard, Brandon Beck of Riot Games, and David Stohl of Infinity Ward, according to Heat Street.

Nevertheless, Tracy Fullerton—Director of USC Games—believes her decision to cancel the event puts USC "on the right side of history," according to The Daily Trojan. No doubt she has struck a powerful blow against the patriarchy.

Gosh and my focal seizures make me a handicapped woman too, surely that would be worth a few million more (black would be better but you work with what you got). Mr. Lou could finally get that fancy log cabin with gun turret he's been pining for.

She of course is suing the dollar store, stupid dike doesn't realize the dollar store doesn't have many dollars. I actually did go into a Target with a bf before I told him if I died there to pull my body in front of the art store next door before calling 911.

So there is a backlash against Target just as there is a backlash against the University of Missouri

In common core physics the pendulum never swings back.

It would be cheaper to designate a bathroom for transgender people.

Then they would feel excluded from what goes on in the little girls bathroom. I had some women believing that there was a cappuccino machine in the Men's OR locker room.

As long as one man in a wig is barred from the little girls bathroom the leftist fight against the (((crony))) 0.1% can wait.

SJWs are used to the trough urinals with the mirrors above them, outside of dieverse areas there is often a divider.

A recently used, with fresh ammo, shotgun didn't do it. *click* A pesticide with organic phosphates didn't do it. Crystal Draino, only allowing myself to vomit four times, waiting twelve hours to go in for care (too late) didn't do it. Even a condemned man gets off after only twice. That is on top of having bled out to 40%, then having a 20 minute ride to real blood with only saline syrup to pass that time. Oh, and I was brought back three times over a, then, undiagnosed and untreated heart condition (15% refraction ejection, for 23 years). Yeah... Shut up, punk. I could still take you with an arm tied behind my back.

I'm guessing Targer caters more to women than men, based on the company's stylish department store heritage and their nearly non-existent automotive and tools/hardware selection. So it's not very wise of them to alienate their emotional, security-driven female base by catering over them to the fraction-of-a-percent of men who like to wear panties and pumps.

Bro, just let this one go.

A couple of years ago I got drunk and started making a fool of myself in the comments, posting "anonymously" and spewing Omega rage all over the place. Outlaw X stepped in and said all of two kind words, which I desperately needed at the time.

That was all it took. Two words from an eccentric redneck genius on the internet was the closest thing I had to a friend at the time.

The reason I'm bringing this up is we've all got choices to make about how we treat each other. I don't see any SJWs or Muslims or NSA provocateurs here, so this is all friendly fire.

How about we class up the place just a little bit?

That's quite a rant Jay Will. Apart from the high probability that he was a CIA or Mossad operative, Anders Breivik kind of had the right idea (except note how he targeted very low-level SJWs and curiously 'performed' for the circling helo owned by Lügenpresse - which could have easily been taken town with the Mini-14 he was using). Most of us here despise the Murikan Banana Empire at least as much as you do, but how many of the lumpen over there understand the difference between debt-racketeering and actual free-enterprise? Your hapless cucks cannot vote their way out of the oligarchy's extermination plan any more than our hapless cucks can. As I noted on a previous thread, I've yet to see a high-level bankster go up in a blast or down in a hail of bullets.

As for the badge-gang, police-goondas and the rest who just obey orders, most have sold their souls for 30 (((empty))) promises of a pension. Come to think of it, apart from the dubious demise of Charlie Hebdo (SJWs all, if you actually look at their histoire), I've not seen any Lügenpresse going up in blasts or down in hails of hot-lead either - and every single one has it coming with compounded interest. As for Trump, if he's for real and actually elected so strongly that not even the vast necropoles of voters generated like Federal-Reserve dollars in places like Hussein's Windy City can ensure a Lizard Queen coronation, he could be your best chance to break out of the stranglehold. He might actually order the closing of the barracks for the EUSSR's muscle - the Banana Empire's legions - as they are more needed on our own border.

The real cost would be if Target was the subject of a shareholder lawsuit.

And the arrogance of you lot on here makes me think you have it coming too.

No, the arrogance is purely from folks on your side, Jay. But retribution is coming...

Its starting to get passed around on FB but I think most people are a bit uncomfortable as only the deluded SJWs are virtue signalling such as this idiot who got some pushback:

On FB I saw a SJW who also happens to be a male school teacher calling for uni-sex toilets, changing rooms and showers. According to him, adults and children using unisex showers and changing rooms 'isn't a real issue anyway' because public nudity is good and Germany is progressive or something....
Someone then asked him why he as a male teacher wants to use the same toilets, showers and changing rooms as his female school students.

Why would I rewrite an old plot line already used? Pfft! You need to read more of my books. Buy a pallet load and hand them out at street corners in penance

@51 Is that second Kings or two Kings? Inquiring minds want to know.

On the SJWs can't stand reading any criticism of them and are incapable of responding, my entire family, wife, daughter, me, sons, were recently defriended on facebook by a niece and her girlfriend who the state, but not us, recognizes as a spouse. Next family reunion should be lots of fun.

"As a general rule, people support SJW nonsense in theory considerably more than in any form of practice that will actually affect their own lives. Once there is a cost to virtue-signaling, the average individual will back off."

Skin in the game really is the crux of the matter, isn't it? Re: unrestricted immigration, for the upper crust it means an endless supply of cheap gardeners and au pairs and exotic new restaurants manned by unpaid family labor. For lots of other people, it means depressed wages and overpopulated, overworked public schools.
