A group of female activists recently spoke out against Target for its rollout of woke goods such as clothing designed by an outspoken Satanist and “tuck-friendly” female swimsuits. The women claim Target is “getting in bed with the devil” by selling these items.
The retailer’s recent controversy began when it began selling female swimsuits with “extra crotch coverage” that is “tuck friendly.” Additionally, social media users discovered that Target had partnered with a practicing Satanist to design pride clothing items. Scarlett Johnson tweeted, “Why did @target hire a Satanist to design pieces for their recent “Pride” clothing line? WTF “Satan loves you and respects who you are… LGBTQIA+ people are so often referred to as being a product of Satan or going against God’s will, so fine. We’ll hang with Satan instead.”

In response to such wokeness in the culture war, Carrie Prejean Boller, Brittany Mayer, and Melissa O’Connor created a group called “The Battle Cry.” The group seeks to fight against woke gender ideology being taught to children and spread throughout culture. The women appeared on Fox News’ “Jesse Waters Primetime,” where they discussed the Target controversy.
“It looks like Target got in bed with the devil and if you don’t like that, it’s time now to get really loud,” Mayer said. “Parents, pastors, consumers, they are making it pitifully obvious for you to see that we are in a war of good versus evil and your children are the target. So, if we want to win, it’s going to take all of us getting involved.”
“We have a June challenge for you where we want you to use correct pronouns and you can look at this printout, print these out, cut them up and drop them everywhere in Target and every single story that is pushing the call onto our children,” O’Connor mentioned. “Let them know how you feel and where you stand.”
“We have been dealing with a gender ideology cult and now we are seeing this cult on full display in the name of pride,” Prejean Boller stated. “We are standing up against this cult. We will win this battle and we need you, the people, to rise up and stand up with us and fight this battle alongside with us ladies here at the Battle Cry.”
Abprallen, the U.K.-based clothing brand that Target partnered with to create some of the pride apparel, posted on Instagram:
One of my favourite and most popular designs, and the one that gave Abprallen its proper footing and direction. Coming up with this phrase really helped make Abprallen what it is today.
Satan loves you and respects who you are; you’re important and valuable in this world and you deserve to treat yourself with love and respect. LGBT+ people are so often referred to as being a product of Satan or going against God’s will, so fine. We’ll hang with Satan instead.
Satanists don’t actually believe in Satan, he is merely used as a symbol of passion, pride, and liberty. He means to you what you need him to mean. So for me, Satan is hope, compassion, equality, and love.
So, naturally, Satan respects pronouns. He loves all LGBT+ people. I went with a variation of Baphomet for this design, a deity who themself is a mixture of genders, beings, ideas, and existences. They reject binary stereotypes and expectations. Perfect.
