Transgender Bathroom Backlash: Over Half a Million Sign Petition to Boycott Target

target-crapper  Transgender Bathroom Backlash: Over Half a Million Sign Petition to Boycott Target target crapperA petition calling for a boycott on Target over the store’s new bathroom policy promoting “gender inclusivity” has reached over half a million signatures.  Featured at the American Family Association website, the petition contends Target’s new policy “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.”  Furthermore, the petition asserts, “Target’s policy is exactly how sexual predators get access to their victims.”  The new bathroom policy also disproportionately endangers female bathroom users, according to the petition.  “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.”  Last week, Target announced via its corporate website it would be changing its bathroom policy to “welcome transgender team members and guests to use the restroom or fitting room facility that corresponds with their gender identity,” in the name of inclusivity.  Backlash immediately ensued with several parents taking to social media to vent their protest.  “Basically Target just told us – and millions of concerned parents – that we’re no longer accepted, respected, and welcome in their stores,” wrote dad Izzy Avraham last week in a viral Facebook post. “My friends, Target has crossed a line, and I believe this is a test case.”  Others vented on Twitter under the hashtag #BoycottTarget:

Watch: Infowars reporter Joe Biggs asks customers at Target stores in Austin, TX whether they are comfortable with Target’s recently “restated” policy allowing men who supposedly identify as females to enter women’s bathrooms and changing rooms.
