    Target accused of poking fun at OCD with 'Obsessive Christmas Disorder' sweater

    [​IMG]

    Jokes, jabs and a general lack of understanding surrounding Obsessive Compulsive Disorder all come at a cost to people who genuinely suffer from OCD, which is why some say a new line of Target sweaters is so upsetting.

    The retail giant recently unveiled a new line of holiday sweaters that define OCD as "Obsessive Christmas Disorder."

    People have taken to Twitter to let Target know that this kind of thinking — and marketing — is not OK, as it trivializes mental illness.

    It's a particularly bad time of year for Target to drive potential shoppers away.

    In anticipation of packed stores and long lines, the chain is hiring an additional 70,000 employees to manage the holiday rush.

    The outrage may strike some as a sensitive reaction to a silly holiday sweater.

    Moreover, the slogan wasn't invented by Target — the phrase "Obsessive Christmas Disorder" appears in the Urban Dictionary online and on other dopey apparel sold on the web.
