Target Is Endangering Our Women (Image: StarTribune)

  • A Christian group has gathered over a half a million signatures, in a petition to boycott Target because of its transgender bathroom policy.
  • The American Family Association started the petition under the protest that transgender rights encourage sexual predators.
  • They believe that now nothing will stop a man from saying “he feels like a woman today” and go into the women’s restroom and put women in danger.
  • Target responded and said that they have single-stall family restrooms for those who find that more comfortable.

A conservative Christian activist group has gained more than half a million signatures and counting from people pledging to boycott Target over its transgender bathroom policy.

The petition started by the American Family Association on Wednesday raises concerns that Target’s inclusive stance on transgender rights encourages sexual predators and puts women and young girls in danger, because “a man can simply say he ‘feels like a woman today’ and enter the women’s restroom.

The boycott has more than 517,000 signatures as of Monday afternoon, marking it as one of AFA’s most popular campaigns.

This is the best response we’ve ever had this quick,” says AFA President Tim Wildmon, attributing the protest’s viral nature to the fact that “everybody knows who Target is, and it’s an easy-to-understand issue.”

Wildmon says Target stands “to lose a lot of customers who won’t come back.” But Target is standing by its policy.

“We certainly respect that there are a wide variety of perspectives and opinions,” says Target spokeswoman Molly Snyder. “As a company that firmly stands behind what it means to offer our team an inclusive place to work — and our guests an inclusive place to shop — we continue to believe that this is the right thing for Target.”

She added that hundreds of Target stores “have single-stall, family restrooms for those who may be more comfortable with that option.”

Target made its position public in a blog post last week, stating that the company welcomes “transgender team members and guests to use the restroom or fitting room facility that corresponds with their gender identity.” The announcement comes as legislation on transgender issues in multiple states has spurred several major corporations and businesses to take a stance on LGBT rights.

Deutsche Bank halted a plan to add 250 jobs to an outpost of the company in North Carolina after the state passed a law requiring transgender people using public bathrooms to use the one associated with their gender at birth.

The American Family Association, a non-profit based in Tupelo, Miss., frequently protests on issues that target what it considers traditional family values. Its more recent campaigns include canceling the organization’s use of PayPal after that company pulled back on plans to open a new facility in North Carolina due to the state’s transgender bathroom law.

    PC is OUT OF CONTROL! This Target decision is RIDICULOUS! The MAJORITY of Americans do NOT AGREE with their policy. I will boycott..maybe from now on!!!!!!!!!

  • Martha Moore says:

    If sexual predators are NOT supposed to be near schools and playgrounds, why give them permission to be in bathrooms with children. I cannot imagine tht a father of a daughter would want men to go to the bathroom with his girl. This is stupid!

  • Robert Lamm says:

    Politically Correct is no longer morally correct. Just because the majority thinks that something is right, doesn’t make it right. This country was built upon a set of absolutes that followed the guiding principles of Christianity. The further this country has gotten from this set of morals, the worse it has become with regard to moral behavior, economically, and just about every other aspect that one could consider. Just take a good close look at the immorality of our government, which is quickly becoming a dictator of the people instead of accountable to the people.

  • larry davis says:

    I will never go back to shop there! I do NOT support this policy nor the queers!

  • Christopher says:

    Fuck all you ignorant, misinformed idiots who are opposing something that’s been happening for years…the right wing conservatives and supposed Christian people hating and telling people how to live their lives, should worry about your own problems that you are too chicken shit to face and deal with…every human being has the right to live their life the way they choose to be true to themself…only God can judge…quit worrying about who wants to use the damn bathroom and where and learn to live with compassionan and understanding…Christians my ass…you people think every gay or different type of individual is out to “TURN” your children…get your head out of your asses and read a fucking book, or get informed before you start opening your biggoted and hypocritical mouths to spew forth things you don’t have the faintest idea about…people of America are so damn stupid and ignorant…no wonder other countries look at us and think we are so backward and negative…thanks to all the suppose “Christians” and the right wing idiots…you people make me sick!!!

  • George Douglas says:

    The sex of a person should be determined by their genitals, not by their thoughts or opinions or desires, and should be divided appropriately in restrooms and dressing rooms.

  • don says:

    Target is pandering to perverts and degrading the moral fabric of this country. I will never shop there again

  • david engel says:

    Common sense. Who wants possible pervert dressed like a women in a bathroom where there are little kids?

    • Bob Loblaw says:

      Nobody, that’s who, a transgender male to female who is dressed as a woman goes into a female restroom, she enters the stall, closes the door and performs hir elimination. Daughters do the same. How this endangers a rightwinger’s daughter is never identified. Forcing a TG m2f back to the men’s room puts hir at risk. Then forcing a f2m into a women’s room will get her attacked for being the pervert when some dad sees hir coming out with his daughter.

      The complaint is about a pervert is stalking their daughter. This has been happening all along and bathroom policy does not affect it. If a pervert is stalking your daughter, a restroom is a poor choice to make the assault. You have bigger problems than this, why is your daughter going about unsupervised in the first place? If she is unaccompanied, she is prey, worry about your own family and quit trying to control other people’s behavior.

  • Tamara says:

    I feel violated..in my most vulnerable position where I should feel safe whether by myself or with my child..I will never shop there again while this in effect..You know how many women and girls have been raped in the bathroom? Did you even think this through??

  • Bill says:

    If a transgender person needs to use the restroom then they can use the family restroom. If I find a guy going into the restroom while my daughters are in there, he WILL meet me coming out!

  • Steve Makovec says:

    Target is doing the right thing, and we should support them. As Chris Wallace clearly stated, there is no evidence of transgender individuals acting as sexual predators. Quite the opposite – transgender people are disproportionately the victims of bullying and discrimination — and that would only worsen with the so-called ‘Bathroom Bills.’ We are told of situations where a few male sexual predators already cross-dress and use women’s restroom to assault women. That illegal behavior will NOT stop with new policies — the answer is to arrest and prosecute people who commit sexual assaults. We must not use a few criminals as a false excuse to pass laws and policies that discriminate against the most vulnerable among us, our transgender sisters and brothers.

  • SaSandy Ruther says:

    Any man can dress ,or not, as a woman and ent r a woman’s restroom or dressing room. This is an opening for any sexual predator to accost a woman or child. Regardless of what gender a person “feels” they are. They were still born a specific gender and r hey need to use t help at genderappropriate facility. In the recent past, family bathrooms have been built. Originally they were for families. However, those restrooms can be used by transsexuals or Transgender people for their privacy. If Target continues wi r having this new policy. They will find themselves losing valuable customers and an unfavorable reputation.

  • Richard Adams says:

    Men do not belong in ladies rooms.

  • Dudley Middleton says:

    Target is 100% wrong on this issue. Make the transgendered use the single family restroom. Why is Target catering to the tiny % of transgendered in the world at the expense of the vast majority.? The USA in general, while trying to protect the rights of everyone, has trampled the rights of the vast majority.

  • nana8 says:

    i am an older woman and have small grandchildren how can we defend ourselves in a bad bathroom situation. no not all people are bad but this gives the nuts a opportunity.

  • John Kight says:

    Target has lost its moral compass all in the
    name of political correctness and has no
    regard for the safety or dignity of others .

  • walker says:

    agree

  • Dave says:

    now nothing will stop a man from saying “he feels like a woman today” and go into the women’s restroom and put women in danger

  • Christine Thomas says:

    I don’t want my young grandchildren be exposed to possible predators or inappropriate body exposure in public restrooms. I support traditional family values.

  • USPatriotOne says:

    I have had it with this PC total BS, and I have had it with Target, Starbucks, Penera Bread, etc..!!! Neither myself or anyone in my family will ever shop with these Satan Driven Monsters Commie/NWO Stores..!!! I hope they all go out of Business and soon! Shop at Mom and Pop stores and put these Global Commie/NWO Mega Stores in the ground where they belong..!!! Only a Commie/NWO/Satan Driven Monster would risk our Womens and Childrens lives in these BS Transgender restrooms…they should hang a sign outside of these restroom stating…”Just a Place for Rape, have fun”…these people that run these Mega Corporations are SICK, SICK, SICK and if one person is harmed by one of these so-called Transgender Monsters, these Corporate Sicko’s need to be charged with Rape or Murder as accessory to the crime..!!! In fact I believe once this does happen, and it will, I hope that Cities AG will bring those CHARGES! Once the first the CEO of Target or Starbucks, etc, lands behind bars for 30 years to life for accessory to Rape or Murder this whole PC BS will change overnight..!!! God help us, PLEASE!

  • Gary Bridgford says:

    Protects the idiots…not the young and unprotected!

  • Shelley Lynn Richmond says:

    As in all things, there are two(or more) sides to every issue. As in all things, there is some good and bad, fact and fiction to every issue that arises.
    Not every transgender person is a pervert (in fact, per capita, very few) so it is unfair to treat someone who truly has a gender dysphoria as some sort of monstrosity or perverted child pornographer.
    Yes, I AM a transgendered woman, and I prefer to use the restroom of my true, female gender. If you force me into the men’s restroom, I won’t stand up to pee there either. But I would do my level best to make you embarrassed enough to acknowledge that I belong in a women’s restroom.
    I can’t speak logic that you will understand AND accept but I can tell you how it is for many transgender people, the majority of transgender people.

    Bottom line, those who hate will hate, but it will not make them any more, or less, correct
    Target is right on the mark with their policy, for myself, I prefer the single stall restrooms, for the time being, for my personal comfort and privacy, but I only speak for myself and no one else!

  • George C says:

    The best and most simple solution is 3 bathrooms, men, women, and “others”. Now who is being discriminated against?

  • Eugene Wood says:

    Transgender are not rapists so what everybody worried about.

  • Darrell says:

    Until this plunder is resolved I, and all the members of m family, will not shop at Target.

  • Edward Knight says:

    It’s immoral and highly unsafe for men to go to a bathroom with women or/and little girls or women for that matter. They chose that lifestyle they can go out behind the store for all I care!!

  • Claude Burke says:

    I would not allow my girls to shop at Ta5rget.
    There are too many predators in our society today.

  • Shirley Koenig says:

    This is outrageous. Being PC comes at a price. I’m already thinking of places that can replace my MANY purchase from Target on a regular basis. I need to feel safe when I visit Target’s clean restrooms.

  • Chuck says:

    I think the people who would allow this are as sick as the perverts who would walk into a ladies bathroom pretending to be a women.

  • GLADYS RICHARDS says:

    Dont want men in my restroom!!!!!!

  • Leila says:

    ABSURD. Normal people are now treated as a minority. I stand for moral principles. NO MEN IN WOMEN BATHROOMS. The marketing of the devil is in full force we need to fight hard.

  • Carole Russell says:

    No one wants to share a bathroom with people of the opposite sex, no matter what they think they are! My daughter has four small children and shops regularly at Target. She buys all her groceries and other household items there.She will no longer shop there, as her children will be exposed to this nonsense!!!! I will no longer patronize Target, as well.

  • Williams says:

    This is a ridiculous issue. Target’s bathrooms haven’t changed. The people needing to use those bathrooms haven’t changed. Only the imaginations of hysterical people has changed. Get over it.

  • Daniel says:

    It’s common sense !

  • Kevin says:

    So this is what it takes for people to boycott Target?
    You should boycott Target and WalMart because they are poor choices.
    But of course with most of the self centered troglodytes in this string, you only think of yourselves.
    Thinking that trans people are perverts is so stupid, have any of you taken the time to talk to any of them?
    Your ignorance shines through.
    Is their potential for a sexual predator to abuse this? Yes. Will it be an actual transgender? In all likelihood, no.
    It will be a diseased straight person.
    No I am not gay, I am a realist.
    Stop worrying about stupid crap, it is the government’s way to distract you from the evils they perpetrate.
    Wake the Hell UP.

  • Kyle says:

    Never went there, and never will! Words spreads fast Target…

  • Linda McIntyre says:

    Our children are at risk to being targets for rapists and pedophiles. Personally I do not want to subject my children and grandchildren to a potentially unsafe environment. The only way I will EVER shop at Target again is to have separate bathrooms for these people to share, whether male or female. If Target wants to accommodate their need for a bathroom, give them a separate one. Until I feel my family is safe at Target, we will not shop there.

  • Daniel Lewis says:

    Come on! Of course transgender bathrooms are crazy and dangerous to family and children.

  • charlie says:

    Born a male use male. Born female use a female. No other way is acceptable except single bathrooms for a single person.

  • Dean says:

    I will not b e going there ever again

  • bill says:

    This is a sick policy, reverse it now, there are way too many perverts in this country.

  • jill says:

    First , it is an attack on families and those of faith. Challenging the Creation plan again. But also from the perspective of physical safety–let just say, I send my daughter into the bathroom and now a male decides he has the right to go into the girls bathroom–what horror and fear for a girl to see a male who may also (under the guise of claiming he identifies as a female} is in fact in there to take advantage of the girl and molest her. The same scenario could play out with me as a woman in a bathroom alone in which now a male enters. I would never feel safe. Target was a family store and it has sadly made a grave error in thinking and choice. I for one will never feel safe in a BR there and will no longer shop there.All parents and women should be fearful of what this opens the doors to.

  • Frances Stoll says:

    This panders to political correctness instead of common sense.

  • gigi says:

    Any body can say they are transgender in order to access the women’s restrooms. Predators, etc.

  • Nicholas Soder says:

    It is so obvious no one should have to tell you why.

  • Thomas Goss says:

    SCREW TARGET AND THE PERVERTS. I HOPE THEY GO OUT OF BUSINESS. WE WILL NEVER SHOP AT TARGET EVER AGAIN.

  • Cindy Orwig says:

    This is just “one more way” to denigrate Christian values for a radical group that represents less than 1% of the total U.S. population.

  • Robert Seal says:

    Men and women don’t mix. God would not like it. Is it because Target is a French Co.?
    Why are we giving into less than 2% of the population?
    I won’t be shopping until there until they change their policy.

  • Dawn Seal says:

    I am a women and I won’t be shopping there until they change their policy.
    Why are we letting less than 2% of the population control us?

  • AT says:

    We should respect one’s biological birth.

  • Daren D. Theige says:

    Anybody who’s so damn worried about who might be using a bathroom has certainly not got many problems in their life!!!! MORONS!!!!

  • DC says:

    Perverts don’t need to claim to be “transgender” in order to molest little girls or attack women in the ladies’ room; they’ve done that since beginning of time, and will continue until they are stopped. This is fear-mongering, plain and simple, and does nothing but continue the demonizing of transgender people by sex-obsessed, uber-fundamentalists. What will be ironic is when a transwoman stops an attack in a women’s restroom somewhere, and the perpetrator is one of these transphobic, bathroom bill-supporting fundies, who also happens to be a perv.

  • Jim Guerard Sr says:

    Who will Target have there ,in the restrooms
    to help my mother and grandmother..and daughter or warth their purses.

  • Joe says:

    sooner or later (probably sooner) a pedophile will figure out to just put on a dress and have his way with an 8-12 y/o little girl. Then Dad will go to jail for assault or murder. My daughter may be 28 and married, but I’ll still protect her like she’s my little girl. Use the rest room of the gender you were born, they say 10% of the population is gay, what about the rights of the 90% that don’t want to share the rest room/locker room with the opposite sex.

  • Mnm says:

    Trans should use the family restroom since there is hardly that many of them- not like there would be a waiting line very often.
    Shiit. The last time I went to the restroom in target- the men’s- there was a young couple funking in one of the stalls.

  • Dan says:

    The Bible would call it “an abomination”

  • Wanda Russell says:

    Anyone can say they are transgender just to get access to the woman’s room. Rapist, pedophiles, and perverts.

  • C. Sackrider says:

    We will never shop at any Target store again. It was one of our favorite stores and with 29 grand children, we really spent the money at Target, but no more. If all they want to do is be PC they can just go straight to a very hot place and we will make sure all our friends know why.

  • Don says:

    Letting men into women’s restrooms!Allowing felons to vote? What’s next??? Our once wonderful America is speeding downhill thanks to these idiot Democrat’s and Liberal business!!! WHAT A SHAME!!!!

  • Toni says:

    First of all, Jesus did not make any mistakes with any of us when we where born, boy and girls…Everyone should thank the Good Lord what He gave us… The transgender bathroom stupid thing will cause many rapes, killings, abuse, looking under the stalls and anything else EVIL you can think of….. WHAT RIGHTS DO THE STRAIGHT, NORMAL PEOPLE HAVE NOW? I WANT THE RIGHT TO BE ABLE TO GO IN A BATHROOM AND NOT WORRY ABOUT IF THE PERSON BESIDE OF ME IS GOING TO LOOK UNDER THE STALL OR PEEP OVER THE TOP OR EVEN KNOCK THE DOOR DOWN AND TRY TO MOLEST ME…

  • Don Harvey says:

    If one has to ask for a reason, no reason would be sufficient enough to sway predators, rapists, deviates and perverts. Target’s name is so appropriate, allowing children and women to be target-ed.

  • i do strongly agree says:

    why do they make the rest room a big deal if born a man use the men’s restroom if born a female use the females restroom then simple as that i would not like a sexual predator use a females restroom just because he can do so … why do we have to focus on this issue we have better issues to deal with like our school’s our veterans and more

    thank you very much

    It is not safe for my wife and daughter!.

  • Wayne Baxter says:

    My wife and daughters safety. Why not let those Trans people be inconvenienced and use the single stall instead of all those others…

    It gives predators an opportunity to abuse this new insane policy
