WEB Notes: Read the quote from the hosting company. They are inclusive alright as long as it goes along with their belief system. If they were truly all inclusive they would have no issues hosting this organizations site.
A conservative website to galvanize support against Target’s ‘gender-inclusive’ restroom and changing-room policies was shut down on Thanksgiving morning by its web hosting company on the claim that it featured “hateful or discriminatory” content.
“Our #AnywhereButTARGET campaign has been so effective that at 9:00 a.m. this Thanksgiving morning our Minneapolis-based web host (Leadpages) unfortunately SHUT US DOWN for being ‘hateful’ and discriminatory’ to try to stop this movement!” stated Lance Wray, Executive Director of 2ndVote, the organization behind the website, in a press release.
In an email to Wray date November 23, Leadpages’ director of operations Doug Storbeck said that it must take down its #AnywhereButTarget landing page by November 24.
“You see, at Leadpages, we strive to create an inclusive workplace that upholds the dignity of all people. We value, respect, and celebrate everyone’s individualities and honor their unique strengths from all different walks of life. We believe that embracing diversity of thought and perspective encourages collaboration that leads to product innovation, diverse products and a successful business,” he stated in the email.
