|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.
