Boycott Target

I don't usually go into political diatribes here. I find the sorts of political arguments that one gets into on the Internet tedious. But I'm making a rare exception here, because it's something I feel strongly about. I'm shaking out the ole boycott rug to protest pharmacists that refuse to fill contraception prescriptions. The idea of someone, anyone at all, mucking with my or any woman's decisions about her body and her life gets me spitting mad. As such, Target will no longer be receiving my consumer dollars until they revamp their policies since apparently, Target is A-OK with their pharmacists being righteous misogynists.

For more links and rants, check out cmpriest's information-filled post and jinzi's very eloquent letter of protest.

Crap! Where will I shop now? I've been spending all my time at Target because I'm boycotting Wal-Mart for, well, being Wal-Mart. (I also get a special joy from going there knowing my father-in-law, the Archie to my Meathead, doesn't approve because Target is a French company.) These big stores give their pharmacists too much pull, probably because they are in such high demand.
