Target became one of the first stores to take an official stance in the bathroom wars. On the 19th, the corporation released a statement calling for exclusivity.The statement read: “We welcome transgender team members and guests to use the restroom or fitting room facility that corresponds with their gender identity.” This is in response to North Carolina’s “bathroom bill,” which has been branded “transphobic.”
It’s only been a few days since the announcement, and fears are already being realized.According to Western Journalism:
In a Facebook post, Karen Crawford said, “It’s true. ..I’m in the women’s bathroom at a Target north of LA…they actually took out a stall for women in order to accommodate the ones who have giblets…yes, these are urinals…for men…and so the war on women progresses. …”I’ll let you take a wild guess at what “giblets” are.
The post from Crawford has received much response.
One follower posted: “Dear Target, thank you for being so ‘inclusive’ as to allow men who identify as women to use the rest room with women who identify as women. Some people believe safety, privacy, dignity, and reality are more important considerations than political correctness, but it’s wonderful to see you taking a stand against those bigots. Why should our wives and daughters be treated with decency when there are cross dressing dudes to appease? Again, thank you for your bravery.”I don’t know what Target was thinking with this.
Over 500,000 have pledged to boycott Target as of today. Liberal policies are bad for business, even if their source is the private sector.
