    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.

    Homosexuality is not a real problem. The problem we have is that people care TOO much about homosexuality and gender equality when there are real problems.

    A real problem being something like human rights violations (as a whole, including against homosexuals) in countries where the ideology is predominantly homophobic, misogynistic, and racist. (Middle east, ISIS controlled territories, any place where Islam is a part of the vast majority)

    Maybe we should fucking work on the economy instead of crying over who gets to use the bathrooms. You either stand or sit to pee, a man going into the womens bathroom is a DANGER to women. Just as a woman going into the mens bathroom is a DANGER to men. What if they are pedophiles or molesters, and don't actually care about what "gender" they associate with.

    We have some serious unemployment, let's fix that before we think about the trivial.
