Conservative bigots are still harassing and assaulting trans people at Target, but this particular right-winger will probably retire from the asshole business after this.
While shopping at a Target this month, a customer witnessed a man harassing a trans woman who was simply there to also shop like everyone else. But this guy couldn’t keep his mouth shut and attempted to shame her. But the witness and other customers quickly moved to defend the woman.
As the witness tells it, a really big tough guy steps forwards and orders the bigot to apologize. And it only gets better from there.
“Just witnessed an asshole trying to verbally shame a trans woman at Target,” the witness named Michael wrote on social media.
I say try because just as he started coming for her, myself and the other customers immediately shut him down and turned on him. This HUGE, BUFF, TATTOOED guy towers over the prick and says “apologize to her now.” The douchebag replies, “to him you mean?” The human mountain then turns to the lady and asks “Do you prefer male or female pronouns?” She replied female. He turns back and says “apologize to the lady. While you can still speak.” The guy apologized and skittered away, the human mountain guy gave the lady a big hug and left with his gf.
Seeing other human beings sticking up for each other against such hate made Michael feel better about humanity.
Just when I think I hate people. THAT WAS AWESOME!!
Here’s a screenshot of the post.
The right-wing jerk probably pissed himself on his way out of the store and he hopefully learned a lesson.
Treating each other with respect and kindness is what is really going to make America great again, not bigotry and hate.
