Target is one of the most diverse employers I've had to deal with, and this is just more evidence of that.

.. but really, where do you draw the line? It's supposed to be a nametag. Are we going to add other identifiers as well? Because I prefer people say "light mocha" and not "dark" or "black" when referring to my skin color. Also, my eyes are hazelnut, not brown.

Fuck off, nobody asked your opinion.

This is something useful for people to know. Trans people exist on this board and they might find this useful.

Don't comment if you have nothing useful to contribute you twat.
Useful how? Because if he/she are transgender they most likely changes their name too . So their name tag would be Hellen for the guys who dresses like a girl. I’m not gonna call her , or hers I’ll call whatever the name tag says. This transgender issues is way to much . Like I tell my kid that asked me about this issues , you don’t need to accept it but you have to respect it , until she/he enters my kids bathroom at school and it no longer respected it.

We have a transgendered girl at our store, she is a boy now. I would never ever put him on the spot , neither would she , by wearing a Twitter meme on his chest.
Being trans is bigger than just a name change, so stop toying with people’s emotions and belittling their cause to Twitter memes.

I have a guy who carries himself as a she never called “him” called by the name on the tag. Until one day “ she “ was coming out of the girls bathroom and I explained in a nice way that the neutral bathroom are at the front.

I think the intent is good with the option for pronoun badges but most of the actual trans folks I know would rather not have pronouns on their badge because in their experiences it’s drawn more attention to them being trans in the workplace from coworkers or guests/customers/whatever shoppers are called where they work. They just wanna go about their lives not deal with jerks.

Stop this now!

If you can't discus this topic without being polite and not insulting people don't come into the thread.

I am tired of this shit.

There isn't a single one of you who doesn't know that that saying certain things are going to piss people off especially about these kinds of topics.

I'm really getting tired of people poking each other just to get a response.

Just fucking stop it.

From the original company statement regarding bathrooms: “Most relevant for the conversations currently underway, we welcome transgender team members and guests to use the restroom or fitting room facility that corresponds with their gender identity.”

So actually, if you did that, you’re in violation of the stated company policy, and could potentially disciplined for harassment and creating a hostile work environment. So, ya know, don’t.

As far as the name badges go, cool they exist!

Love the idea, but I wish it was printed on like "Trainer" instead of being engraved, it looks kind of weird the way they did it.

If they really wanted to do it right, they'd reissue name badges to everyone with their preferred pronouns. Not just trans TMs.
Or...if they really wanted to do something right, they would do something with actual impact. Name badges with pronouns, jeans, attendance contests....aren't support. They're just more distractions so we don't notice a lack of hours and pay.
