Slavery is an extremely important issue, of course it is. But the products we are discussing-- or ATTEMPTING to discuss-- are the same ones we have been purchasing from other online retailers for some time.
There are many supported forums for discussing your politics, activism and causes. This forum is for our discussions about homeschooling our children. I am taken aback by your tacit statement that if I choose to disagree with your assessment of and continue to shop at Target, that I am somehow making the world a worse place. This is your opinion.
The way I've always looked at this site is homeschooling our children which means homeschooling ourselves. I never want to shut down to learning new things even the hard ones. We then go on to pass that new learning to our children. So I have to say it's a fantastic place to bring it up. Now saying this, and seeing the way you reacted, Im not so sure.
Your hard and strong words are a clear signal to me to stay the f*** off your posts which I will respect. So I will kindly leave but I will say that I invite this sort of discussion here on the homeschooling site because I see it as a good thing on so many levels.
