Target’s policy is not new, but is simply a more pronounced “restatement” of an existing corporate rule, Target spokeswoman Molly Snyder told a newspaper.
The bathroom question turned into a national debate after North Carolina enacted legislation in March (only a recent example of the numerous such cases we’ve seen these past few years) to restrict who could and could not use men’s and women’s bathrooms. Proponents of the law believe it’s needed to keep potential sexual predators out of the bathroom of the opposite sex.
Customers and potential customers almost immediately spoke out against Target’s decision to ignore the biological difference between men and women. Many have issued logical counter-statements to Target. A very disturbing, yet true side to the debate is that why would you choose to allow men in the women’s restroom when every single store has a single family restroom that can easily accommodate your Transgender customers? To this Target has no honest answer. Accept for their pathetic, inadequate cries of ‘equality’.
Last August, Target transformed its toy section so that toys were no longer grouped together by gender. Previously, aisles were labeled for “Girls’ Toys” and “Boys’ Toys,” along with accompanying colored backdrops. The chain company took similar measures in other departments, including bedding.
But the anti-freedom, privacy-evading, anti-American-ness, doesn’t stop there.
In September 2015, corporate issued the following statement: “Inclusivity is a core belief we celebrate at Target. We stand for equality, a fundamental factor in making our team members and guests feel accepted, respected and welcomed in our stores and workplaces every day. Over the years, we’ve worked with partners….and other projects that promote diversity and inclusion. In June, we introduced our Pride manifesto, a year-round commitment to creating an inclusive culture and taking pride in who we were all born to be.
Today, we’re proud to announce another important milestone: Target has signed on in support of the Equality Act. Introduced in Congress this year, the bill would amend the Civil Rights Act of 1964 to include sexual orientation and gender identity, and ban discrimination in areas including employment, housing, access to credit, public education and accommodations.” That’s right. Target is fighting to make opinions a crime.

Target’s first in this official series of anti-conservative announcement was made on April 1, 2016. They’ve additionally put out another statement on April 19th, 2016, stating that they are standing next to their outrageous policies.
“Given the specific questions these legislative proposals raised about how we manage our fitting rooms and restrooms, we felt it was important to state our position,” Target’s statement said.
But the even crazier thing about this “not new” policy is that it may have already led to the victimization of women and children. A simple Google search provides dozens of cases of men arrested at Target stores across the country for violations.
Way to go Target for choosing to protect the .03% of the ADULT transgender population over your women, children, mothers, grandchildren, teenager population. There’s been MORE than several cases where someone claiming to be transgender, and using it as cover up, is actually a registered offender.
An example that is becoming a common-place experience is that one of many such stories like the following: “In November, a woman in Attleboro, Massachusetts encountered a man in the ladies’ room of a local restaurant chain. He was facing her as she was leaving a stall. She was emotionally shaken. When she complained to the management they acknowledged that the man was an employee, but said that he was a “transgender” and therefore he had a right to be there.” This is a minor case, but these things (and much worse) are happening daily; men using women’s restrooms and locker rooms in the name ‘equality’. But where is the equality & justice here?
Many attacks have taken place, in addition. And liberal groups are promoting the “bathroom equality” campaign as part of a large push to outlaw and stigmatize any actions or attitudes that recognize the routine differences in physical abilities and personal preferences between male and female Americans.
We shouldn’t be surprised, though. This is one example of the countless major companies taking anti-privacy steps, to take away the American’s rights.
What do you think? Are Target’s recent policies anti-American?
