TARGET Goes Gender Neutral

“Well, I never heard it before”, said the Mock Turtle, “but it sounds uncommon nonsense.” (Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll)  Target is taking down the signs that identify boys and girls clothing so no one will be offended if a girl wants to buy boys clothes.  They are going ‘gender neutral’.  According to Webster’s Dictionary ‘neutral’ means indifferent, of medium quality.  So obviously Target is showing that they are indifferent to gender.  If little Johnny wants to buy the latest Victoria Secret’s Princess thong underwear, let’s make sure he can purchase it in a location where he will not be embarrassed.  Likewise, if Little Suzy wanted to get the zipper front jeans, make sure she can do it without feeling uncomfortable.

What has happened to ‘boys will be boys”?  This is another push by a small minority in our country to move forward in  their quest to change the morality of our country.  Target says they got complaints about locating boys and girls separately.  Do you think they would change if a million Christians said they were offended by the mixture of clothes and they would not be shopping at Target anymore?

Deuteronomy 22:5 states “The woman must not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman’s garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the LORD thy God.” (KJV)  (emphasis supplied) The NET Bible translation for Deuteronomy 22:5 states “A woman must not wear men’s clothing, nor should a man dress up in women’s clothing, for anyone who does this is offensive to the LORD your God.” (emphasis supplied)  Obviously, Target is more concerned in not offending a few people than in offending God.

Genesis 1:27 “So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him: male and female created he them.” (KJV)  God created a distinction between the sexes, the clothing worn by each was also to distinguish between the sexes in the interest of morality.  Whatever will or can “obliterate the distinction between the sexes tends to licentiousness” (Pulpit Commentary) and has been considered to be unnatural and tends to immorality.

Once again business is bowing to culture.  It appears whatever is an abomination to God is what our culture is for.  The only reason culture is winning right now is because the Christian community will not stand up for God and what is right.  God will come back on the scene as soon as we stand up for Him, if we are ashamed to stand up for God, He is not obligated to stop America from ‘going down the tubes’.

This is like a pilot who knows how to fly the plane allowing it to fly into a mountain because he doesn’t want to grab the controls.  We are in control if we stand up for God and against the ungodly culture as a unified body, but if we choose to sit by and let the dark side direct the culture then we will go down with the country.  Grab the controls and let’s stop the cultural demise of our country.
