Now let me explain to you why Sweet Frog is the shit, alright?
It’s basically a Christian organization done right, in this time where you have assholes like Chick-Fil-A and stuff, you might walk into a Sweet Frog and see ‘Fully Rely on God’ on the wall and little Bible verses on the cups or hear their music which in some locations is just praise music and think “Oh great, bigots.” but you hold on for one second before you walk out the door.
It’s understandable that someone walking through the door would be concerned that their money may end up going toward organizations that work against gay marriage, a woman’s right to abortion, and various other things that Christian businesses are infamous for. However, Sweet Frog holds the stance that upholding Christian values means helping those around you, and that means not diminishing someone’s importance or alienating them because of race, creed, gender, sexual preference, or gender identity or any number of things, that all people deserve to be treated with respect.
When you visit Sweet Frog you can rest assured that your money will be going toward groups such as Tiger Lily Charities (a nonprofit that gives financial aid to individuals with leukemia and their families), Interfaith Outreach United (a group of businesses and groups of various faiths including Muslim, Jewish, and various branches of Christianity that work together to volunteer their time to their communities to feed the hungry, visit the sick, help the homeless, and perform random acts of kindness while simultaneously spreading understanding and tolerance at the same time), They donated money to go toward helping those in Boston after the bombings and they have donated money to raise awareness concerning the issues of human trafficking.
So next time you head into Sweet Frog to enjoy a cup of chocolate hazelnut frozen yogurt with hot fudge, cheesecake bites and reeses bits or mango berry colada with mochi and fresh fruit….. you can enjoy it knowing that you’re supporting a business that respects you and those you love.
People being angry about ~dem gays~ on Target’s Facebook.
I just want to give my two cents on this and tell you a story.
A couple weeks ago, I was hired at Target. I have a job at Target. Not a big deal right?
It is a big deal because i’m a transman.
It doesn’t take a genius to conclude that it’s hard for me, my brothers, and sisters to get a job. There are legal restraints regarding the job and if you don’t pass, it’s hard to be taken seriously at a job interview.
Right on the application, it asks what your preferred name is. It also asks if there is anything that target should know. I put the fact that I am a transman, expecting not to get a call because usually when you put that down, people will throw out the application. I got TWO interviews.
At the interview, they asked me about it. I told them I am on hormones and they told me that they didn’t care. Not in the sense that they don’t emotionally care, but that it didn’t matter. I was male and that’s all that mattered. They also told me that they give sex same couples benefits in states that do not recognize them as a married couple.
At my job orientation, I was not misgendered once. Even my supervisors who weren’t sure of my gender avoided pronoun use, which I found only happens when you’ve had pronoun training. They gave me a name tag with my preferred name and didn’t ask questions. I felt safe and respected, which is huge for a trans* person.
TLDR: Target is amazing not just for the LGB, but also the T. Shop there for the rest of your life.
Christians claiming to be oppressed by homosexuals is simultaneously one of the saddest and most hilarious things in the universe.
It was so great to see the story shared beneath this :)
If I ever tell you I’m going to sleep and then you see me posting or liking things online for about an hour immediately after that, I promise I wasn’t lying to you, I’m just bad at going to sleep and it is usually a long process that begins with disengaging from any sort of immediate contact with people (chats, for example) and ends when everything on my screen is blurry and I’m hallucinating plot points I haven’t written yet
If I was a famous author I would publish a book with ten different endings which all went to print with varying degrees of rarity, but not tell the fans about it so that I could watch their confusion as they disagree over how the story ended. Then when they figured it out I would ‘come clean’, telling them that I had released eleven alternate endings and watch them panic again as they all try to find the last ending.
This is perfect.
