As though it weren’t enough to put out storefront displays of pro-trans gear and spangly rainbow attire complete with chest-binders for “trans” kids, Target has officially rolled out new swimsuits that feature “extra crotch coverage” with “tuck-friendly construction” for underage girls who might happen to have penisis.


Disgusted shoppers took to social media to post photos of the swim gear, rolled out as part of the store’s extensive “Pride” collection that sits front-and-center at all Target stores around the month of June. The collection includes clothing and swim attire sized for adults and kids as young as toddlers.

Another (now-ex) customer filmed herself shuffling through the store's merchandise that included baby onesies and kid clothing for "multiple body types and gender expressions."

Oh, but (nauseatingly), that’s not all.

The store also reportedly sells three “Pride” items – including two messenger bags sporting the phrases “We Belong Everywhere” and “Too Queer For Here," along with a "Cure Transphobia, Not Trans People" shirt – from a transgender designer whose other merchandise promote violence, drug use, and Satanism.

According to The Blaze, Erik Callen, the transman behind the brand “Abprallen” from which Target got the items, reportedly sells other stuff including a lighter with the phrase, “Burn down the cis-tem,” a reference to straight, gender-conforming people, and a pin with the image of a morning star weapon that reads, “We BASH Back.” He also sells “Heteronormativity is a plague,” “Trans Switches For Abortion,” “Times Up For Transphobes,” and “Satan Respects Pronouns” merch.

"Satan loves you and respects who you are... LGBTQIA+ people are so often referred to as being a product of Satan or going against God's will, so fine. We'll hang with Satan instead," Callen wrote in the description of one piece he designed.

"Satan is hope, compassion, equality, and love. So, naturally, Satan respects pronouns. He loves all LGBTQIA+ people. I went with a variation of Baphomet for this design, a deity who themself is a mixture of genders, beings, ideas, and existences. They reject binary stereotypes and expectations. Perfect,” he added in a caption beside one piece that features the image of a satanic demon, a skull, and a goblet.

And customers weren't thrilled.

Have fun walking that path behind Bud Light, Target. From what we've heard, it's a downhill one.
