Be honest; seeing a huge corporation with thousands of employees that can’t use “its” properly is just infuriating. We’ve lost what little respect we had for you, Target.

Poor old Target got confused with their gender signage again. Although with 30 percent off bikinis, you might as well buy one for your son, too – that’s a great bargain.
