Just wow! We all know we as mothers love shopping at Target. Target is well aware of this and now they just posted about this post something that is just chilling to me and to most. Continuing to Stand for Inclusivity is what they call it, I call it bull.
Basically, what they are saying is… if you identify as female although being born a man, you can use the women’s bathroom and vice versa. Now, that is just opening a can of worms in my opinion and I see a drastic drop in shoppers. I’m not aware of the amount of transgendered folks but I think it’s safe to say most people stick with what they are born with.
I don’t know about you but I do not want a man in the women’s bathroom, even if he wants to be one or identifies as one. Did they not think about that? It’s not like we can card people to make sure they aren’t sexual offenders. You are transgendered? Awesome for you. It’s great that you were able to come to terms with you are.
My problem isn’t with you or what you identify as. My problem is with the psychos that will take advantage of this and choose a bathroom not in their gender with bad intentions.
The repercussions of this could be disastrous. I imagined child molesters and perverts are elated with this news. If you try to stop a man from entering a woman’s bathroom, that will be considered harassment from now on. Who’s to stop a predator from walking into the opposite gender’s bathroom? Who thought this was a good idea?
It’s not discrimination to separate genders, it’s for protection. Protection of our children. It’s for privacy. You don’t disregard children’s safety because of grown people. Target’s sentiment is nice, yes let’s not discriminate people, and I am all for that. You can do whatever you want. It’s your life. If you want to be a unicorn you have the right to be one, but not when it infringes on my safety. This is what this does.
From now on I’m boycotting Target, this is beyond ridiculous and you are putting lives in danger. You want people to feel included? Then have a unisex bathroom that can be locked. Leave the men and women’s bathrooms alone. You want people to feel included so badly than cough up the dough to build different bathrooms with locks in them that are separate.
What do you think of this? Are you for it? Or Boycotting? Let me know in the comments below.
Au Revoir Target!
