Target is selling a sweater that has OCD plastered on the front of it. Below the letters it says 'Obsessive Christmas Disorder'. Really Target? You are that insensitive to sell something that completely trivializes and minimizes what OCD is and the devastating effects it has on the people that have it.
Below is the email that I sent to them and the link to their website to contact them if you feel you'd like to do so.
My wife and I spend a lot of money shopping at Target, both in store in online. We use you pharmacy, buy your groceries, buy all the other things that you have to offer. We enjoy shopping at your stores.
It's extremely irresponsible and inappropriate that you are selling a sweater that trivializes OCD. People will say, 'it's just a sweater'. Well it's not. It's a decision, intended or not, by Target to make fun of and minimize a mental illness that causes severe pain and sufferning for millions of people. I have OCD and it's been anything but pleasant and quite honestly I'm lucky to still be alive but for the grace of luck and great therapists and medication.
I cannot in good faith continue to shop at your stor, online or offline, if cannot see why this sweater is so offensive. Think of what would happen if you trivialized another illness such as cancer or diabetes.
My name is Josh and I have a Target Red Card with you. Take a look at all the purchases we make. I'm all too happy to move all my shopping to Amazon and Costco if you cannot correct your mistake. I hope to hear from you and hope that you come to the conclusion that there's not gain in trivializing the suffering of people that have an illness. If you cannot come to this conclusion, I'm taking our money elsewhere.
