When Target announced that it would get rid of gender separation in some departments, people took to their Facebook page to complain about the "PUSSIFICATION." And fake Target customer service rep Ask ForHelp was there to answer them.
Just as we know that the sun rises and sets each day, we also know that when a company makes a cool, inclusive shift in company policy, it's inevitable that dumb-dumbs will complain about it on the Internet. So when Target announced that it would be removing the gender specifications from some areas of the store targeted at kids (like toys and home goods), people started posting on the company's Facebook page about how it was a sissy move and an affront to God, because apparently God hates sissies and loves toy aisles that differentiate between "building sets" and "building sets for girls". (I guess I left Sunday School before I got to the part of the Bible that talks about rules for store aisles. Does anybody know how God feels about having the produce on the right side of the grocery store versus the left side?)
Anyway, one person who saw the posts on Target's Facebook wall was "pot-stirrer" Mike Melgaard. Melgaard decided to put his pot-stirring efforts to work with a fake Target customer service account, Ask ForHelp. For a glorious 16 hours before the account was squashed, Melgaard responded to all sorts of offensive comments with unhelpful "help." Selections from Ask ForHelp are below, because yes, there are stupid questions.
