Walgreens faced boycotts from right wing campaigners over the new trans-inclusive policy


US pharmacy chain Walgreens is facing a right-wing boycott after saying that they allow transgender customers to use the bathrooms they prefer. The decision was made after a woman was rejected from using a female bathroom for looking ‘too masculine’ though she was not even trans. But anti-LGBT conservatives have opted to once again wage a war over the issue as they did with Target stores when they announced a similar policy 2 years ago. The American Family Association, the anti-LGBT pressure group which was behind the Target boycott, have already launched a petition against Walgreens. “As an example, since a similar public policy was announced by Target Stores, Inc. two years ago, dozens of women and children have been victimized by male predators inside Target stores,” they wrote, which is a total lie, there was not a single report about a woman assaulted in the bathroom in Target Store or elsewhere by a man who pretended to be a woman. Such ‘crimes’ exist only in the minds of anti-trans activists. And by the way, even if non-cis women are allowed to enter women-only spaces it does not mean that they receive a right to commit crimes there – offering an access to a bathroom is not offering to rape or assault someone there.
