Target's War on Women

What about a man's or woman's right to privacy?

"Self-preservation is the first law of nature, but woman-preservation is the first law of civilization." -Gail Hamilton


The very first day the American Family Association launched their boycott of Target in response to Target's transgender bathroom policy, I signed it.

It wasn't a hard decision considering I don't shop at Target that much.  But I do love their little girl's shoes and I have found some really cute clothes there over the years.

But allowing men in the women's restrooms?  Are they crazy??

There are over 1.2 million people boycotting Target since the April announcement and the bathroom wars have now spread across the country both in the public and private sectors.

I went into Target to let them know I won't be shopping there anymore.  Here's why:


-A company that denies reality is headed down the wrong path.  I mean, how much more basic can it get then acknowledging the two sexes- male and female?  What about a man's or woman's right to privacy?  To refuse this means civilization is going backwards.

-Allowing men who think they're women in the women's bathrooms is bad enough.  But this policy obviously opens the door to sexual predators.  There are many more people registered as sex offenders than people who identify as transgender and they have already taken advantage of Target's policy.

-Probably 80% maybe more of Target's shoppers are women and many have children who need bathrooms available.  If they can't provide us a safe space anymore, I have a problem with that!

-This is just the beginning of a progressive denial of reality and the potential for people to increasingly "live in their own reality", citing their right to absolute freedom.  This is not healthy according to many statistics and common sense.

-I know I am not alone.  Over 1.2 million people signed the boycott and I hope many more will join.

  1. We don't have transgender bathrooms in our country - not yet. But I have been to Sweden where they do have those kinds of bathrooms and I felt very uncomfortable.

    I really don't understand why people feel they have to deny the existence of the two sexes - I mean: It's reality! And what's wrong with that?

    People are different, that's OK. And they shouldn't be discriminated for being who they are. But that shouldn't lead us to deny reality just because it might offend someone!

    1. Thanks for your support! That must have been awful to experience a transgender bathroom. I hope Americans continue to resist them and protect what's right.

  2. May ask you to look up Buck Angel? By requiring people to use the bathroom that matches their biological sex, Buck, who was born a girl and has transitioned to man, would be required to use the women's room despite being one of most masculine-looking people you can imagine. If we force Buck into the women's room, then we can no longer question when other masculine-looking people come in, which makes it a lot easier for people who were born men and identify as men and who want to hurt our daughters to come in.

    Look up Sirapassorn Atthayakorn, who was born a boy and transitioned to a woman. Sirapassorn is extremely feminine, and by societal standards, very gorgeous. Should Sirapassorn be forced into the men's room?

    By your standards, Buck should to into the bathroom with you, and Sirapassorn should go into the bathroom with your husband. Are you okay with this, or would you rather have Sirapassorn go in with you and Buck go in with your husband?

    Also where should people who are born intersex (both sexes at the same time, which is verifiable by chromosomal testing) go pee?

    1. People don't just "transition" as the media would make us think. Every chromosome is male or female as God created it. I have never seen an intersex person, have you?

    3. Colette,

      You've never seen God, yet you obviously believe that God exists.

      Please take a minute to educate yourself about the reality of intersex individuals before you make ignorant comments like the above.

    4. God is a supernatural Being. And my beliefs are those of the Church and Christian civilization. This is a blog for Catholic ladies so if you don't believe in God or women why are you here?
      I'm not going to believe the intersex association just saying there are intersex people. There is little data or statistics on that websitw except from a 20 year old book and thier own doctor. I am going to believe reality not propoganda. I asked two labor and delivery nurses and they said guess what male and female He created them.
      If there really are all these intersex people walking around out there, where are they? The bathroom wars are being waged by transgenders.

    5. Intersex is a birth defect, just like being born missing a leg or blind. It should be treated as such. To use Intersex to suggest that somehow transgenderism is legitimate is like saying that people born blind prove that blindness is a good, natural human condition.

    6. And no matter what unfortunate situation people born Intersex find themselves, God created them male and female.

    7. Yes thank you. "Intersex" refers to someone with androgen insensitivity which is treatable by an endocrinologist, so yes it's a birth defect. I have a thyroid disease but I go to a doctor and take thyroid hormone. I dont go around making websites that glorify the disease and say I'm proud of being different. I would just get more sick if I did.

    8. I know a person with Kleinfelter Syndrome whose chromosomes are XXY, and one of the sisters at my school taught a child that had BOTH male and female anatomy. Ofte, these conditions are caused by a failure for a sperm and egg's genetic material to divide evenly, or two very early fraternal male and female twins to re-fuse together. These conditions are real genetic and medical anomalies.

    9. Thanks for the input. That is just what they are, abnormalities, not a reason to knock down men and women's bathrooms.

  3. I am a Catholic lady. I have known two intersex persons in my life. Both brave and beautiful souls who had medical decisions made for them in early childhood as to which gender they should live their lives. Both infertile - would never have come into contact with a labor or delivery nurse. God's beautiful creation is not black and white. There are many shades of grey. Jesus taught us to recognize this and in all things kindness.

    1. The labor and delivery nurses were referring to the babies born. I have never met an intersex person (or someone with androgen insensitivity which is treatable by an endrocrinologist). It's obviously an extremely rare condition and not a reason to let men in women's restrooms.

    2. I misinterpreted re the nurses Colette. Yes, a rare condition and very traumatic for those who must endure. I'm not convinced that unisex restrooms is wrong. Disabled toilets here have always been so and I've never encountered a problem. Could unisex toilets force us all to be a little more discreet and modest in considering others just like we do in a family situation? I enjoy your blog and admire you.

    3. Seperate bathrooms for men and women is an important institution because it provides privacy and modesty, dignity and respect. It's such a basic concept it seems crazy to have to defend. I just hope Americans stand up for common sense. Where are you from?

    4. I am in Australia. Other women in the female toilets have often not acted with modesty, dignity and respect towards other users - definitely no guarantee that separation provides such I'm afraid.

    5. That's interesting. It must be very different there. There is no way I would go in a bathroom that allowed men.

  4. Thank you so much for your honesty and staying true to your values!
