Silly Target. It seems some bloggers are a tad vexed over the department store giant's new advertisement (also giant, and in Times Square) featuring a young woman in a spread-eagled position over the company's logo. One of them sent a letter to Target complaining about what she sees as the predominant depiction of women in marketing campaigns arranged in, well, vag-evoking poses. How did the fifth largest retailer in America respond?

Good Morning Amy,

Thank you for contacting Target; unfortunately we are unable to respond to your inquiry because Target does not participate with non-traditional media outlets. This practice is in place to allow us to focus on publications that reach our core guest.

Once again thank you for your interest, and have a nice day.

Idiots. [Via Newsbusters]
