On April 19, 2016, Target Corporation announced that people are welcome to use the bathrooms and fitting rooms of their choice, regardless of their biological gender. Under Target's new policy, a man can decide to visit the women's bathroom or fitting room whenever he chooses, including registered sex offenders! No one can stop him. Besides defying common sense, Target's decision puts guests at risk. History has shown this is one of the ways sexual predators get access to their victims.
Target Already Had a Solution for Transgender Persons
Our opposition to Target's policy is not about transgender persons. Its comes from the fact that Target's policy opens the door for sexual predators to take advantage of women and children. Most Target stores currently have unisex bathrooms. These bathrooms are available to individuals who self-identify as transgender persons. But this was not good enough for Target. Target had to show they were "progressive" and "politically correct", even if it meant endangering women and children!
