Target announced this week it will sell “chest binders” and “packing underwear” in stores for “Pride month.”
So-called “Pride month” was first declared in 1990, when then-President Bill Clinton named June “Gay & Lesbian Pride Month.” Then, when former President Barack Obama took office in 2009, he labeled every June during his two terms in office “LGBT Pride Month.” President Joe Biden has continued the Democratic tradition.
Amid uproar over Florida’s Parental Rights in Education law, which goes into effect July 1 and prohibits public-school teachers from instructing children in pre-K through third-grade classrooms about sexual orientation and gender identity, this year’s “Pride month” will undoubtedly include more unapologetic celebrations of LGBT lifestyles, which are contrary to God’s design for human sexuality.

Scripture clearly states God created two sexes — male and female — and designed sexual interaction to be enjoyed by one man and one woman, only within the confines of marriage.
Among the most contentious aspects of the LGBT agenda is the transgender movement, particularly when children are at the center of the debate, as has often been the case. For example, the streaming service Discovery+ is debuting a limited series this June romanticizing children dressing as “drag queens.”
This week, Target entered the fray by announcing product collaborations with TomBoyX and Humankind to create “chest binders,” which are often used by females who identify as transgender and want to “flatten or minimize the appearance of their chest,” according to Heathline. “Packing underwear” refers to undergarments that include additional padding in the front, intended to be worn by females who identify as transgender and wish to appear as if they have male genitalia.
The products are reportedly already available in some Target stores.
One Twitter user who celebrated the products tweeted the new underwear is “discreet” and “a great option for young people who may be figuring things out” and want to hide it from their parents.
“It’s a huge win for teenagers that are figuring things out for themselves,” added the Twitter user. “This is an opportunity to walk into a nearby store because Targets are everywhere, and look/touch/try on something. It gives kids a chance to obtain a binder without ordering online and trying to get the mail before their parents or siblings.”
Target will also sell pro-LGBT items with rainbow flag designs. While the LGBT movement has co-opted the rainbow, the biblical purpose of the colorful display is to symbolize God’s promise to never again destroy the earth with a flood.
