    Disgusting and perverse…for any parent to accept their child or loved one to the dangers of multigender restrooms and changing rooms.

    Dear Mrs. Austin,
    I was shocked and extremely dismayed to hear and read about Target’s restroom and changing room policy. I was also dismayed to see the CEO’s response with followed the boycott and the strong opposition which stretched throughout the U.S. In short, I think you’re dead wrong. I think the policy lacks common sense. I think you are setting up situations where women and little girls will be abducted and/or raped. No, this is not saying that transgenders are the abductors and the rapists. Target made an open door policy. Any man can go in and use a womens restroom and changing room. I really don’t know what has gone wrong in the minds of people to not know, instantly, that this is simply ridiculous.
    Numerous days ago, I transferred all of our prescriptions OUT of Target. We pay out-of-pocket, will be paying more at Walgreen’s, but don’t care. We stand for principles in our household. I’m boycotting Target. I’m sure my husband will be boycotting too. We can live without going into a Target store.
    I was a victim of sexual assault when I was 17 years old. I am 58 years old now. Somebody was watching (a sex offender, guilty of doing it before, in our state of Minnesota). He looked for an opportunity, and he nabbed me. As said, I think you are making a grave error.

    Mrs Austin, please use your influence to make Target a safe place for us to shop. We have enjoyed your store for years, but haven’t step inside and won’t until we feel like you are listening and care about the majority of your shoppers. Please, take action now.

    My family and I love Target but have completely stopped shopping and spending there. I am accepting of transgendered individuals. If a man who is dressed and living life as a woman wants to use the women’s restroom, fine by me. What I am not accepting of is allowing any man who “claims” he identifies as a woman at that particular moment to enter the women’s restroom. This person is NOT transgendered and is simply taking advantage of your open bathroom policy. It just doesn’t make sense that you would allow this.

    Dear Roxanne Austin,

    Target’s new policy of allowing men to use women’s bathrooms and fitting rooms puts women and children at risk. It also violates individual privacy rights. Target has traded the “safety and privacy” of 99.7% of its customers for the “rights” of 0.3% of the population that self identifies as transgender persons. In doing so, you have also failed to protect the interests of your shareholders by inviting this boycott. My family will no longer shop at a store that puts “political correctness” ahead of the interests of the vast majority of its customers and shareholders
