(Molly Bruns, Headline USA) As June swiftly approaches, the LGBT lobby and their corporate allies, including Target, are starting to launch their vice-themed merchandise, including books and toys for young children and babies.
According to the Daily Wire, the children’s collection features onesies and small shirts with phrases like “Just Be You And Feel The Love,” and “Bien Proud.” The store also features rainbow leggings, tutus and sweaters, and bibs emblazoned with phrases such as “I Am Proud of You Always.”
The adult collection features several graphic tees, swimwear and merchandise promoting different drag queens. Sandals, socks and accessories for pets such as chew toys and leashes are also available.
Backlash to Target peddling groomer material for young kids was swift with many calls for the company to be boycotted.
“We hope there are enough parents out there that understand how wrong this is and show them that this garbage will not sell,” wrote the group Gays Against Groomers. “The only thing these people understand is money. Target deserves the Bud Light treatment. We will work to put the pressure on them.”
This is what you will find in the kid’s section of @Target. We urge you to take your business elsewhere. They are indoctrinating and grooming them with LGBTQ ideology. It is highly inappropriate and disturbing.

Target is one of many companies to pander to “Pride” month festivals, with their previous collections featuring trans-friendly underwear and shirts with activist slogans for children.
The company also chose to offer books to teach radical gender theory to children in their collection this year.
One book called Bye Bye Binary focuses on transgender activism and tells the story of a “joyful baby” who “refuses to conform to the gender binary and instead chooses toys, colors, and clothes that make them happy.” The book, written by groomer Eric Geron, markets itself as a “great baby shower gift for all soon-to-be-parents.”
The Pronoun Book, meanwhile, introduces children to “a diverse cast of people and simple text that introduces their pronouns.”
Books promoting the LGBT lifestyle incurred a great deal of criticism over the last few months, particularly as activist teachers and librarians insisted on making them available to children in schools and libraries. Many of these books are pornographic in nature.
Requests to remove these books from institutions where children can access them with ease spiked between 2021 and 2022, according to a report from the American Library Association.
Conservative parents and community leaders continue to win seats on school and library boards as they work to remove groomer books from local institutions.
