“I don’t shop at Target anymore. A lot of my family members seem to do the same,” he added, sharing information about Target’s stock price plummeting in the wake of the boycott.

The Associated Press claims Target is providing children with transgender clothing, a “tuck-in” structure that encourages confused men to “hide” their genitals to appear more feminine.

Target spokeswoman Kayla Castaneda Said The Associated Press reported that the “tuck-friendly” bathing suits are only sold in adult sizes, as some people claimed the bathing suits were for children. However, some of the children’s swimwear in the Pride section are tagged as “fitting for a variety of body types and gender expressions,” so that doesn’t stop the company from questioning.
Target did not respond to Breitbart News’ request for comment on the meaning of the statement and did not explain what the term meant or what message the company was trying to convey.
