Target Troll Is The Real MVP

by Samantha Baumgartner

With Target coming forth in its decision to move away from gender-based signs, the world is one step closer in the battle for across-the-boards equality. Like any battle, there are two sides: those in favor of Target’s decision and those who just cannot. 

She can’t. UGH.

Absolutely, 100% unable to even.

Caitlyn Jenner is behind this now.

For the minority believing Target has started some sort of gender neutral apocalypse, a troll account has been created to respond to the most pressing questions like, “Why would you try to remove the differences,” because God created man and woman to be different? 

The account was started by Mike Melgaard who took to the company’s defense…by posing as the company’s help desk. People were outraged. Melgaard was probably tired of it. And hilarity ensued: 

Thanks Melgaard, you’re the real MVP, and thank you Target for this monumental and progressive move in society.
