A spokesman for the American Family Association says he was clearly snubbed by Target officials today when he expressed his group’s deep concerns about the retailer’s bathroom policy.
AFA’s Abraham Hamilton III went to today’s Target shareholders meeting in Southern California to raise concerns again about the company’s policy allowing transgenders to use the bathroom or changing room of the gender in which they say they identify. AFA’s concern has been that sexual predators may take advantage of the policy, thereby putting women and children at risk.
“It’s amazing. The response really was We don’t care what you have to say. We don’t care what the American Family Association represents.

We are committed to the complete overhaul of American society as it pertains to sex,” says Hamilton. “That literally is their response.”
AFA’s online petition to boycott Target had over 1.3 million signatures as of Wednesday. Based on this, Hamilton questioned whether Target had done a cost-benefit analysis prior to pursuing its bathroom policy.
