More Than Half a Million Have Pledged to Boycott Target Over Their Bathroom Policy

People have not been happy with Target for their decision to let men use women’s restrooms. And over half a million people have signed a petition saying so.

From TheBlaze:

Last week, Target Corp. announced that it will continue to allow transgender customers and employees to use the bathrooms and fitting rooms of their preference, regardless of their biological sex. A statement released on Target’s corporate website Tuesday came amid a nationwide legal dispute over whether transgender people should receive special protection under the country’s civil rights provisions.

Since that announcement, more than 500,000 people have signed an online pledge to boycott Target. A description of the pledge, created by the American Family Association, states several concerns of religious and social conservatives who believe that providing such accommodations for transgender people raises both moral and safety concerns:

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.

At the bottom of the pledge’s description, the AFA included a list of several news articles covering instances in which transgender privileges were abused by predators.

“Corporate America must stop bullying people who disagree with the radical left agenda to remake society into their progressive image,” AFA President Tim Wildmon said in a statement Friday.

“We want to make it very clear that AFA does not believe the transgender community poses this danger to the wider public,” Wildmon added. “Rather, this misguided and reckless policy provides a possible gateway for predators who are out there.”

It’s absolutely insane that people are willing to anger the majority of Americans and put them at risk, solely to appease a tiny group of mentally ill people. This boycott is well-deserved and Target should reconsider their policy immediately. To sign the pledge, go here.
