AmericanAmerican Family Association: Sign the Boycott Target Pledge!
For those not following this story about the transgender community, Target announced on its website: "[W]e welcome transgender team members and guests to use the restroom or fitting room facility that corresponds with their gender identity. ...Everyone deserves to feel like they belong."
The American Family Association in response is calling for a boycott of Target stores. From the AFA website:
This means a man can simply say he "feels like a woman today" and enter the women's restroom...even if young girls or women are already in there. Target's policy is exactly how sexual predators get access to their victims. And with Target publicly boasting that men can enter women's bathrooms, where do you think predators are going to go?
Clearly, Target's dangerous new policy poses a danger to wives and daughters. We think many customers will agree. And we think the average Target customer is willing to pledge to boycott Target stores until it makes protecting women and children a priority.
The AFA's solution is to have every store provide "unisex bathrooms" to the transgender community in addition to the regular bathrooms for men and women. Of course that would add to the cost.
I am getting pretty well fed up with the AFA and other conservatives on the religious right for all the nonsense and fear mongering that they engage in for political gain. Target should tell them where to go. I'll continue to shop at Target and thank them for their policy.
