Target removes part of its LGBTQ collection after several homophobic attacks | International

Videos of angry customers destroying shelves or berating employees at Target stores in the United States circulate on social networks. The reason for the outrage is the collection launched by the store on the occasion of LGBTQ pride. The negative reaction has led the company to withdraw certain items from the catalog, without specifying which ones. In another controversial move, the company has opted to rearrange items in the back of stores in the southern states.

The main point of contention revolves around a specially designed swimsuit that provides extra fabric to supposedly accommodate male genitalia, and also offers a flattening effect on the chest, claims that have been perceived as targeting transgender audiences. . According to videos that circulated on networks, this suit was in the children's section, which aroused the outrage of a certain conservative sector.

However, some of the information was false. Kayla Castañeda, a representative for Target, specified that the suit was only offered in adult sizes, something that seems to be corroborated by other videos on social networks where shoppers show the product label. The swimsuit piece from the children's collection only has a label that states: "Intended to adjust to multiple body types and gender expressions."
