Target deserves Christmas coal, not customers, says AFA

Target restroomA major retailer deserves some Yuletide scrutiny for publicizing a store policy that is endangering women and girls during the busy Christmas shopping season, says a pro-family group.

"Target is defying common sense, they're defying public safety, and they're ignoring even the will of their own customers," says American Family Association spokesman Walker Wildmon.

Just days after Target reminded the public in 2016 that it allows transgendered customers into opposite-sex restrooms, AFA took action: an online boycott climbed to a million signatures in a week.

Other major retailers have a similar transgender policy for their store restrooms, too, but Target is known for its LGBT-friendly policies and reminded the public about the policy at the same time North Carolina lawmakers were battling over a "bathroom bill" in the state.

AFA, meanwhile, has repeatedly warned Target that the liberal policy meant to appeal to the LGBT community will draw straight men into Target stores, and publicizing the policy only attracts molesters and peeping toms since no man will ever be stopped by store employees.  

To date, in fact, AFA has tracked numerous incidents at Target stores to prove its point.

Most recently, a man approached a 10-year-old girl in the women's restroom in a Woburn, Massachusetts store, where he offered her candy, commented on her clothing, and reportedly tried to get into the stall that the little girl was using.

AFA is urging Target customers to spend their Christmas money elsewhere, since the retailer is naturally banking on the Christmas season for busy stores and ringing registers.

"We're urging our supporters and everyone, all shoppers in America," says Wildmon, "to avoid Target this time of year and all time of the year."
