The Target Boycott: Are You a Bigot for Opposing Transgender Bathrooms?

Target announced its transgender bathroom and fitting room policy two months ago.

Since then, more than a million customers have pledged to boycott Target, fearing for the safety of their wives and children.

Instead of respecting the concerns of his customers, Target’s CEO Brian Cornell rebuffed these concerns at the company’s latest annual shareholders’ meeting.

“We’re a company that believes strongly in diversity and inclusion,” Cornell told his shareholders. He also emphasized his commitment to public safety.

Some shareholders have concern about the company’s bottom line. The store’s stock has already fallen fifteen dollars a share, and more stores are cutting hours.  If they had simply created more unisex, single-stall bathrooms, that shift would have attracted far less controversy.

In spite of these concerns, Cornell is keeping the transgender policy. The CEO even compared this fight to the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960’s, when individuals did not want to dress near people of a different skin color.

That comparison is offensive and false.

Are Americans bigots simply because they do not believe that men should be allowed to enter women’s bathrooms and fitting rooms?

Fearing for their safety and their opposition to the transgenderism movement, customers are boycotting the store in larger numbers. The American Family Association started a petition to #BoycottTarget, which 1.3 million people have already signed.

Check out this video, where pro-family protesters are lined up outside the annual Target shareholders meeting, which took place in Costa Mesa, California.

  1. “Are You A Bigot…”? Are you kidding? What the heck is passing for “common sense” these days??? Of course we’re not bigots. Just because the “homosexuals” are getting their 15 minutes of fame because of those idiot Supreme Court Justices who voted on “gay marriage”, DOES NOT INVALIDATE the Bible and God’s Word, PERIOD! Almost all of those five so-called Justices were appointed under Democratic Presidents, which should tell you something. And, as I’ve said before, Obama doesn’t give a crap about transgender, per se. He’s behind it because he’s trying to destroy Constitutional government. He’s been doing that since DAY ONE of his administration. And the Congress has BEEN LETTING HIM DO IT, by not doing anything about it. So many Americans are absolutely fed up with these RINOs that we elected in 2014. Nuff said.

  2. Actually the opposite is true. If you support a biological mans’s choice to use a”the ladies’ room you are anti-female. I find it amazing that the federal government, the ACLU, and other can agree that bio females have a right to privacy when deciding such issues as birth control and abortion. Yet these same groups also argue that this right magically disappears for bio females the moment a bio male decides to use the ladies’ bathroom or locker room. Either bio females have the right to privacy (which allows us to have single-sex facilities based on anatomy) or we do not (which places us in second-class citizenship status). If our right to orivacy, dignity,’and dignity can be withdrawn for the sole benefit of bio males, what other rights are we likely to lose??

Either bio females have the right to privacy (which allows us to have single-sex facilities based on anatomy) or we do not (which places us in second-class citizenship status). If our rights to privacy, dignity, and modesty can all be withdrawn for the sole benefit of one or more bio males, what other rights are we next likely to lose?? Please sign the boycott Target petition. Your help is needed.
