I will not ever purchase Barilla pasta due to their anti-LGBT policies or donate to the Salvation Army for the same reason. I give my money to other inclusive, anti-discrimination companies + charities. YET, I see a lot of people calling for boycotts over LGBT inclusive policies - yet, they still use Facebook, Apple products, Microsoft products (basically any computers or smart phones), Kraft food, shop at Target, drive etc. Do they merely pick and choose the most convenient ones for them, or are they not fully committed? Should they fully commit to the cause? Pic to help

I do see what you mean. When a Charity physically turns needy people away becus they're LGBT (Hurricane Katrina - they did just that, from memory) - I'll put my money into the Red Cross instead. But I know what u mean.
Except afterhurricane Katrina the Sally's TURNED away people from the LGBT community. I give to the Red Cross instead. My suggestion was becus the medium they use 2 spout their distaste also supports LGBT..shouldn't they be boycotting social media 2?
I agree with you on the LGBT issue. I wish they would change that. But I will also check out SA on social media.
Oh, I meant those who insist on boycotting target etc - not the Sallies - still being on social media

And the - why are you still using Facebook then if you really don't like using companies who support equality? (Which is where I find most of said people). It can change policies tho a lot of the policies they r trying 2 change would b backward step.
I don't use Facebook. Trans rights isn't equality - it is privileging mentally ill men over women. When I was sexually harassed by a man, HR nailed him to the wall. When done by a man in a dress, HR ignored it until I proved work interference by it
There are trans men as well (born female) - just saying. I've had this discussion with u b4 - don't want it here. I see Where your views come from now, and I get it so I will leave it there.
It is sad. I don't expect everyone to agree on LGBT, but I find it concerning that people don't entirely understand what they are boycotting against - the treatment of everyone equally. They don't fully commit tho - only doing what is easy.
