As we reported, Target has publish a statement last week in which they allowed trangender people to choose the restroom of their choic. But the fundamental Christian groups were deeply disappointed with it. American Family Association, has launched a petition calling for a boycott of the store. At the time of writing, it claims that over 492,000 people had signed the petition. Criticizing the Target statement, it said the retailer’s policy ‘is exactly how sexual predators get access to their victims. And with Target publicly boasting that men can enter women’s bathrooms, where do you think predators are going to go?
‘We certainly respect that there are a wide variety of perspectives and opinions. 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.’ Target’s spokesman answers.
