Target’s CEO, Brian Cornell, was interviewed on CNBC’s Squawk Box on May 11. Cornell reiterated Target’s commitment to allow men to use the ladies’ room if they wish.
Cornell acknowledged that the vast majority of Target stores already have unisex family bathrooms. However, instead of proposing the obvious solution of having the 0.3% of the population who self-identify as transgender use the unisex bathrooms, he’s telling the 99.7% of the population if you have a problem with our policy, go use the unisex bathroom!
Did you get that? Target’s CEO is saying the 0.3% of the population that is transgender is more important to Target than the 99.7% of the population that is not. This man is totally tone-deaf and likely will drive Target stock into the ground as the boycott movement continues to grow.
