Last week, Target announced that they were opening their bathrooms to the public and that everyone can use the bathroom of their choosing. It didn’t take long before someone started a petition, boycotting Target over their new policy. As of Saturday, the petition has been signed by over 300,000 people. The petition which was started by the American Family Association (AFA) has gone viral in only a couple of days. If everyone signing the petition keeps their pledge and refuse to shop Target stores, it could adversely affect their bottom line and raise questions by stockholders.
The AFA points out that not all transgender people are a threat, but they have documented a dozen cases of men using transgender laws to their predatory practices.
“Corporate America must stop bullying people who disagree with the radical left agenda to remake society into their progressive image.”
Corporations are using new laws that protect the privacy of women to try to extort those states to withdraw those laws and have effectively boycotted those states, even refusing to invest in those states. Normally a state cannot pass a law boycotting those companies, however, since those companies are using extortion, states have a couple of avenues they can use. One, they could prosecute the companies, possibly even under the RICO Act. Secondly, they could pass legislation that bans any business or city that boycotts their state from operating at a profit within their borders.
The announcement from Target included the following:
“It’s something we celebrate. We stand for equality and equity, and strive to make our guests and team members feel accepted, respected and welcomed in our stores and workplaces every day.”
“We welcome transgender team members and guests to use the restroom or fitting room facility that corresponds with their gender identity.”
“Everyone deserves to feel like they belong. You’ll always be accepted, respected and welcomed at Target.” (Unless you are a woman who objects to having someone video tape you as you use the bathroom.)
